The JOE v Ladbrokes Football Accumulator Challenge: Week 10

Hayley O’Connor takes on the might of the JOE sports team each week in a Premier League betting challenge. Hayley's on a roll, while JOE is still stuck in a rut.

Having taken eight weeks to kick the (soon to be updated) win-o-meter into gear, Hayley O'Connor is on something of a roll at the moment as, for the second week in succession, all of her picks came through to further increase the gap between herself and a so far penniless JOE in the Ladbrokes accumulator challenge.


Boring stalemates between Sunderland and Norwich and Arsenal and Chelsea foiled Conor Heneghan's picks on his first weekend of the accumulator challenge seven days ago, but knowing that he can't let Hayley build up too much of a gap ahead of Sean Nolan's imminent return, he's gone for a more conservative approach this time around.

Here’s Hayley’s picks for Week 10:

Man United to beat Norwich, 3/5

A character-building win over Hull showed further signs of United's momentum building and they should have too much for the Canaries at Carrow Road.


Man City to beat Crystal Palace, 1/7

Palace have improved immensely under Tony Pulis and aren't conceding many goals, but City are practically unstoppable on home turf.

Everton to beat Southampton, 4/5

A 10-man Toffees were nearly good enough to beat Sunderland on Boxing Day and Martinez's men will be keen to right the wrong of that defeat at the earliest opportunity.


All in all, that treble comes in at odds of a little over 3/1 and the way Hayley's going at the moment, you'd be a fool to back against it.

And here’s JOE’s picks:

Manchester City to beat Crystal Palace, 1/7

Palace deserve a lot of credit for their performances of late, but City have yet to drop a point at home all season and this one has banker written all over it.


Hull to beat Fulham, 11/10

Defeat to Man United was a blip on what has been an excellent home record for Hull so far and Fulham have lost six of their nine games on the road so far this season.

Tottenham to beat Stoke, 1/2

Spurs really need to be winning their home games if they want to keep in touch with the top four and after a home draw with West Brom, we fancy them to get all three points against the Potters.

That treble comes in at odds of a little over 7/2 and hopefully is enough for JOE to finally make his mark on the win-o-meter.


We'll know for sure next week so check back then for an update, when JOE will hopefully have ensured that Hayley isn't out of sight in the first week of 2014.
