Goal Rush Accumulator and NFL Tips 291112
There is very little on the calendar for sports this evening that’s worthwhile, three games of football and the usual NFL Thursday night game to be precise. Leaving slim pickings for our tipsters but having been buoyed by yesterday’s Goal Rush success, we’re going to have a crack at it anyway.
For the third time this week we are turning our thoughts to the Copa Del Rey, for which we were a bore draw away from successfully predicting a five fold accumulator yesterday; but these fixtures are going to be tricky.
Copa Del Rey Treble
Celta Vigo v Almeria
Celta go into this second leg tie with a two goal deficit to the Segunda Division side and as they currently hover three points above the relegation zone, a continued cup run would be a welcome distraction. They will need to come out all guns blazing and aren’t likely to lose to their inferior opponents.
The reward for their progress will be two very lucrative games against Real Madrid.
Grenada v Zaragoza
Zaragoza carries the advantage in this tie, thanks to their 1-0 home win in the first leg. So their game plan is likely to be about exposing the spaces provided by Grenada as they try to get themselves back into the tie, giving plenty of opportunity for Zaragoza to hit them with a barrage of counter attacks.
Real Mallorca v Deportivo
This is probably the tightest of tonight’s fixtures and should be an exciting spectacle. Not only is the game currently at a stale mate following a previous 1-1 draw, but both teams are staring perilously at the drop zone in the league, so will be hoping a victory tonight can provide the confidence boost required to help pull them away from the bottom three.
Best odds for this treble are with Paddy Power at 9/1.
There may only be three games to pick from but with it being a cup competition and far from decided, we think they are all primed for both teams to score.
As always the best odds on a goal rush can be found at Ladbrokes.
New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons are having a fantastic season so far with a record of 10-1; tied with the NFL’s other surprise package the Houston Texans. Matt Ryan has been one of their stand out stars with commanding displays and the composure of a veteran QB.
New Orleans are hardly going to roll over at the Georgia Dome though. The Saints and Drew Brees are responsible for the only blot in Atlanta’s season so far, with a shock win over the division leaders just 18 days ago in a closely fought contest against their bitter rivals.
With that taken in to consideration, we don’t feel history is about to repeat itself, as Atlanta are more than capable of clawing back the deficit in their head to head record.
Atlanta win @ 1/2
Atlanta win by 7-12 points @ 7/2
