The JOE v Ladbrokes Football Accumulator Challenge: Week 25

Last week wasn't good for either Hayley O'Connor or ourselves. With just two weeks to go until the end of the season, it is time to get back to winning ways.

It had to happen. Ladbrokes' Hayley O'Connor had been on the hottest of hot streaks, with a 9/1 an 8/1 and an incredible 16/ treble all landing in the previous three weeks. Last week she pushed the boat out again, going for an 11/1 bet that featured a draw at Anfield, and a Fulhma and Arsenal win. Only one came to pass, so that great run came to a halt.


As for us, our less than excellent form continued as Everton and Crystal Palace let us down.

Here's hoping that we can get back to winning ways this week.

Here’s Hayley’s picks for Week 25:

Manchester United to beat Sunderland, 4/11


Sunderland are fighting for their lives but I reckon the Giggs regime will bag its second win.

Chelsea to beat Norwich, 2/9

They were bad in midweek, but Chelsea should stuff the Canaries at home

Cardiff to beat Newcastle, 14/5


With protests planned at St James' Park, I think Cardiff might sneak a vital win

Just 6/1 this week, but I won't complain if it comes in

And here are JOE's picks:

Hull to beat Aston Villa, 11/5


We just can't see Villa beating anyone, even Hull, at home.

Stoke to beat Fulham, 6/5

Would Mark Hughes enjoy inflicting a defeat on his former team? Yes, yes he would.

Manchester City to beat Everton, 3/4

With the title in sight for City, and with Everton shorn of Gareth Barry, this should be an away win.


We've gone for a 12/1 shot this week, and we reckon it's a winner
