The JOE v Ladbrokes Football Accumulator Challenge: Week 14

After adding a very hefty wedge to her total in midweek, JOE has a lot of work to do to catch up with Ladbrokes' Hayley O'Connor.

An inspired bit of punting on Sunderland to do the business on Stoke, coupled with handy enough wins for the two Manchester clubs added a very tasty €550 to Hayley O'Connor's win-o-meter. The first lady of Ladbrokes now has a commanding lead over the less wise punters at JOE Towers, who fell short thanks to Arsenal and Chelsea only managing draws.


But as our old ranch hand father told us, it is time to get back on that horse. Let's just hope we don't get bucked off again.

Here’s Hayley’s picks for Week 14:

West Ham to beat Swansea, 13/8

We expect more 'out-tacticing' from Big Sam and that could mean trouble for the Swans


Everton to beat Aston Villa, 11/20

Time for a bounceback for Roberto Martinez's men after midweek derby misery

Liverpool to beat West Brom, 4/6

If they can carry even a smidge of that Merseyside derby into this game, Liverpool should run out easy winners.


All in all, that treble comes in at odds of just over 13/2 as I try to really press home my lead.

And here’s JOE’s picks:

Newcastle and Sunderland to draw, 5/2

This one should be tight, tense and probably scoreless


Manchester United to beat Stoke, 4/7

While they are far from perfect, United look like they might be about to hit some form again, and Stoke surely won't be able to stop them.

Arsenal to beat Crystal Palace, 2/9

Tony Pulis had made the Eagles very tough indeed but we still think Arsenal will have too much.

That treble comes in at odds of a just over 13/2 too and should hopefully narrow the gap for us.
