Football accumulator bets for a busy Saturday afternoon with the usual assortment of 3pm kick offs. We've picked out the best bets for the afternoon. 



Football Accumulator Bets 


Huddersfield v Bristol City – Huddersfield win 

There was enough in last weeks 2-0 win over Birmingham to suggest that David Wagner's ideas are getting across. Jurgen Klopp's former assistant is an exciting appointment in West Yorkshire and he will implement a similar style of play to the charasmatic former Borussia Dortmund coach. He has a decent squad and Sean Scannell looked like a player re-born last week. He hasn't been in his best goalscoring form this season, but if Nakhi Wells is provided with enough service, he will surely start knocking them in. They face Bristol City at home and look good enough to win this and put more daylight between themselves and the relegation zone. The Robins have only won one of their last eight games and none of their last four away matches. Losing 3-0 at the New York Stadium to Rotherham last time out was a very poor result and that was followed up with a 2-0 home defeat to Blackburn. It's not looking too rosy for Steve Cotterill's men and I think Huddersfield's win last week will have given them plenty of confidence going into this. 


Cardiff City v Sheffield Wednesday – Both Teams to Score? Yes

This one may have a 0-0 draw kind of feel, but Cardiff's defence has gone from looking resolute to a shambles in the last couple of weeks. Clean sheet after clean sheet earlier in the season, but they conceded twice to an exceptionally poor Bolton side last week and that following the shipping of two late goals against Burnley. The confidence just appears to have taken a knock since they failed to see out that match against the Clarets. Sheffield Wednesday have plenty of tricky players including Fernando Forestieri & Lucas Joao who may cause problems for the Cardiff backline. Sheffield Wednesday drew 0-0 with Derby last weekend, but they were largely the better team and the Rams have a superb backline. Away from home, Wednesday are a little more expansive. They've conceded 13 of their 22 goals on the road and even lost 3-1 to Charlton recently. 78% of their away games have seen both teams finding the net. 


Peterborough v Shrewsbury – Peterborough to score over 1.5 team goals 

Graham Westley has done a superb job since taking over at Peterborough. The former Stevenage boss may be universally disliked, but there's no doubt he has his Peterborough side firing. They've won five of their last six and scored plenty of goals along the way. They've scored 14 goals in their last four league games and they could fire a few more here. Shrewsbury have been going through somewhat of a purple patch themselves when it comes to scoring goals. There have been 14 goals in their last three matches which include 4-2 win over Sheffield United and a 2-2 draw with Gillingham. They've shipped at least two goals in four of their last five games and in all of their last three. With Connor Washington free-scoring and Ehrun Oztumer creating chances galore in the centre of the field, the Posh will surely score a couple here. 


Colchester v Barnsley – Over 2.5 goals 

Colchester are in dire form and they had a change of manager as Tony Humes paid the price for an open defensive policy that they have adopted in recent weeks. Tom Eastman and George Elokobi have struggled to cope with League One's attacks, but down the other end they have scored plenty with Callum Harriott looking particularly impressive. Colchester come here off the back of a 5-1 thumping against Burton and they only just sneaked through to the third round of the FA Cup winning by 3 goals to 2. Barnsley have scored in each of their last five matches and that includes the amazing 4-3 loss at Coventry. They took Wigan to extra time and penalties in the JPT after a score draw in normal time. Things are looking slightly rosier for Lee Johnson now although there is still plenty of work to do. Colchester have scored and conceded 17 goals at home this season and this match should see some more go in at both ends. 


Bristol Rovers v York – Bristol Rovers win 

It's going to be tough for York under new manager Jackie McNamara. The former Dundee United manager has had a baptism of fire at Bootham Crescent and hasn't been able to oversee any sort of improvement at York in recent weeks. They have had to borrow six loan players from various clubs to try and sort the slump out and this week have released Keith Lowe. They face Bristol Rovers who beat Wycombe at the Memorial Ground last time out. They've won three of their last six and the home victory against Carlisle was decent and their point away at Exeter was creditable. Just one point from their last eight games from York does not read well and they will struggle to get anything here.Matt Taylor is in fine form and following his hattrick against Wycombe, he will be looking to add to that haul.
