Turn Good Friday into a great Friday with our 372/1 Championship accumulator!

Take advantage of the long weekend and cash in on a feast of Championship football

by Josh Powell | April 17, 2014

In an attempt to spice up the Easter weekend, we’ve gone through the seven Championship games on Good Friday and put them in a cheeky little acca. The thought of spending the winnings on enough of those mini Lindt balls to fill a bath is simply glorious.

Our accumulator pays out at a nice little 372/1 which returns £3,730 for our £10 stake. Not only that, but thanks to Paddy’s acca bonus we get an extra 30 per cent to take our winnings up to £4,849. Yabadabadoo.

Some rough math tells us that for just under £5k we could get 20,000 Lindt balls, which would be near enough to one piece of chocolatey heaven every half an hour for the next year.

Blackburn v Yeovil

  • Blackburn are unbeaten in their last eight games – winning three of them and drawing five. They haven’t been shy in front of goal recently and have found the onion bag 15 times in their last six matches
  • Yeovil prop up the Championship and have won just one of the last nine. They have just the one victory from 10 games away to top half sides this year, although they have scored in 70 per cent of those games
  • Blackburn beat Yeovil on the road 1-0 in December, and although their chances of promotion are slim, they should still have enough to see off League One-destined Glovers

Bournemouth v Sheffield Wednesday

  • Bournemouth are top of the form table with five wins and one draw in their last six. The Cherries are unbeaten at home and have lost just one of the last 11 Championship games
  • Sheffield Wednesday’s season is pretty much done and dusted and the Yorkshire side have won just one of the last six games. They’ve lost five of the last four on the road and haven’t kept a clean sheet in four games
  • Bournemouth have their eyes set on a play-off place and they have lost just one of the last nine head-to-heads with Wednesday

Huddersfield v Brighton

  • Huddersfield are without a win in their last nine Championship games, losing six and drawing just the once. The Terriers have just one win from their last seven games on home turf
  • Brighton have been in good form on the road, losing just one of their last six, and they have the best defensive record away from home in the league. They have kept clean sheets in 52 per cent of their away games, whereas Huddersfield have conceded in each of their last seven matches
  • Brighton have won the last three head-to-heads with Huddersfield and can make another leap towards securing a play-off spot with another win on the road this weekend

Charlton v Bolton

  • Charlton are in a strange run of form, winning four and losing five of their last nine games. They are just one point above the drop zone, whereas Bolton are sitting in 14th, comfortably thinking about the summer holidays
  • The Trotters are unbeaten on the road in their last six games – winning three and drawing three -and have lost just one of the last 12 games
  • Bolton have tightened up at the back with five clean sheets in their last eight games. Charlton aren’t exactly prolific and have failed to score in 56 per cent of their games in 2014

Wigan v Reading

  • Wigan have lost just two of the last 13, and lost just three of 21 home games all season. They’re currently in fifth spot, three points ahead of Reading
  • The Royals have lost just two of the last 10 matches and have won five of the last seven on the road. Their away from is the fourth best in the Championship
  • Wigan have a slight edge winning the last three head-to-head meetings, but both sides will be cautious not to drop points with a play-off spot in reach

Blackpool v Burnley

  • Blackpool are in desperate form, winning just two of their last 25 matches – losing 72 per cent of those games. To add to their misery they have won just three of 11 home games against top flight sides this season
  • Burnley, on thee other hand, have lost just two of the last 18 and are unbeaten in their last nine games on the road
  • The Clarets have scored at least one goal in 86 per cent of their away games this year and have the third best away attack in the division. A win would see them promoted if other results go their way

Doncaster v Derby

  • Doncaster have lost four of the last five games and at home have lost the last two matches. However, before that double defeat their home record read five wins and two draws, and Donny have picked up 72 per cent of their points this season on their own soil
  • Derby’s form is good, winning four and drawing two of the last six games, although they have won just one of the last five games on the road. The Rams are pushing for promotion but Doncaster have managed to win half of their home games against top half teams this year
  • The last five head-to-heads at Doncaster have been too close to call with two going the way of the home side, two wins going to Derby and one draw. Each of those four victories were by just a one goal margin showing how tight this fixture tends to be
