Tuesday’s football schedule consists of games across the football league and the FA Cup. We’ve scoured the best betting sites in the UK and previewed the action to put together an accumulator for tonight’s games.
Arsenal to win
Arsenal make the away trip to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup and come in as overwhelming favourites to win this tie. Arsenal have been struggling for form recently but that is not as concerning as Nottingham Forest’s record at home this season.
They have only managed to record three wins all season at The City Ground which is a place where they should be thriving. Arsenal may be out of form but they are more than capable of securing a comfortable victory against a Nottingham Forest side who are also struggling.
Arsenal are alo coming off a 5-0 win against Crystal Palace and with the morale most likely being quite high, they should have no problems here.
Aston Villa to win
Aston Villa vs Newcastle is up next and we’ll be siding with a win for the home side. Newcastle have been very poor away from home this season and are really only securing their wins at St James’ Park.
Newcastle may have won their last two FA Cup trips on the road but before that, they went eight games in a row without recording a single win away from home. When you compare that to Aston Villa’s record of 11 games without a loss at home, this game looks like a mismatch on paper. During this streak Villa claimed points from Manchester City and Arsenal so it’s clear to see they’re comfortable here.
Leicester to win
Leicester are currently at the top of the Championship which is 15 places ahead of their opponents Swansea. They’re massively favoured in this match up and are a short price to win here but adding them to our accumulator bumps up the price.
Leicester have only lost two of their last 15 games at the King Power Stadium which is the polar opposite to Swansea’s five game streak without a win away from home. Swansea haven’t been great this season and Leicester should have no problem dealing with this out of form side.
The Foxes have scored 12 goals in their last five games so it’s easy to see why they’re favoured here.
Oxford to win
Finishing us off is Oxford to beat Portsmouth. They seem a big price considering they are at home here with most bookmakers pricing them at around the 21/10 mark. Portsmouth are top of the league for a reason but with Oxford being more favoured at home, this could be an interesting match up.
Despite their two recent losses at home, Oxford have been fairly solid this season when it comes to getting results at The Kassum Stadium where they recently went on an 11 game streak without a loss.
There are only 10 points separating the two sides and the value may well lie with the home side with them being such a big price at 21/10.
When we add all these selections together, we’re left with a 9/1 accumulator for Tuesday’s games.
