The JOE v Ladbrokes Football Accumulator Challenge: Week 15

No wins for either party means Hayley O'Connor of Ladbrokes remains streets ahead in the JOE v Ladbrokes accumulator challenge, a situation we'll be doing our utmost to address this weekend.

Having shot up the win-o-meter to the tune of €550 during the middle of last week, it was good job for JOE that Ladbrokes' Hayley O'Connor failed to add to that advantage last weekend, with Liverpool ending up costing her very dearly in the end. Let's just say Hayley wouldn't be Kolo Toure's biggest fan right now.


Unfortunately for us, our own efforts were all over the place meaning that we still have a helluva lot of catching up to do and we intend on starting the recovery process as soon as possible.

Here’s Hayley’s picks for Week 14:

Arsenal to beat Liverpool, 23/10

Liverpool have been excellent at home last season, but if there's one team that know how to win at Anfield, it's the Gunners and every point is crucial at this stage in the title race.


Chelsea to beat Newcastle, 1/4

Chelsea will be flying after beating Man City on Monday and Newcastle are in a bad place after another Tyne-Wear derby defeat. As close to a home banker as you'll get.

West Brom to beat Crystal Palace, 2/1

Defeat for either could drop them in the relegation zone and I fancy the Baggies to come out on top.


All in all that accumulator works out a little over 12/1 and would rocket Hayley out of sight in the win-o-meter if it comes good.

And here’s JOE’s picks:

Liverpool and Arsenal draw, 12/5

With a lot at stake for both sides, we think this is too one is too close to call and fancy a share of the spoils.


Manchester City to beat Norwich, 4/11

We can't for the life of us see Man City losing two on the bounce and think normal service will be resumed at Carrow Road.

Sunderland to beat Hull, 11/10

The Black Cats are on a roll having lost only one in nine and we fancy them to carry it on against the Tigers on their home turf.

You'll get odds of just under 10/1 on that treble and we hope for our sake and yours that it comes good.
