Championship Saturday Accumulator: Middlesbrough to maintain momentum in 11/1 acca

Fixtures in the Championship continue to come thick and fast and we've picked out a four-fold acca from Saturday's schedule, including a Middlesbrough win at home to QPR.

All four of the games included in our accumulator, which produces odds of 11/1, take place at 15:00 on Saturday and they could have a major impact at both ends of the table.

Saturday four-fold acca:

Stoke to win @ 11/8
Middlesbrough to win @ 11/20
Luton v Burnley - under 2.5 goals @ 4/6
Sunderland to win @ 1/1

Odds were correct at time of writing and are subject to change.

Potters to pile further pressure on Blackpool

WhatBlackpool v Stoke City
WhereBloomfield Road, Blackpool
When15:00, Saturday 18th February 2023
OddsBlackpool 2/1, Draw 23/10, Stoke 11/8

Blackpool opted for a change in the dugout last month as they swapped Michael Appleton for Mick McCarthy.

Appleton's tenure only lasted seven months, but the board felt he needed to go following a steady slide down the table after recording just one win in 11 games.

The Seasiders sat 23rd when McCarthy took control, but they head into this weekend's home clash against Stoke at the foot of the table, having failed to win in four under the veteran manager.

McCarthy has overseen two defeats and two draws in the Championship and Stoke, who are looking to put distance between themselves and the drop zone, will be confident of adding three points to their tally.

The visitors have failed to win in three on the road, but two of those games have come against promotion hopefuls Sheffield United and Luton Town.

The Potters won the reverse fixture 2-0 in August and they ran out 1-0 winners when they travelled to Bloomfield Road last season.

Boro can keep building momentum

WhatMiddlesbrough v QPR
WhereRiverside, Middlesbrough
When15:00, Saturday 18th February 2023
OddsMiddlesbrough 11/20, Draw 3/1, QPR 9/2

In contrast to Blackpool, Middlesbrough's season has improved vastly since they made a change in leadership.

Boro were just above the relegation zone in 21st when Michael Carrick replaced Chris Wilder and they head into Saturday's home clash with QPR sitting pretty in third.

They have won four in a row, including a victory over second-placed Sheffield United on Wednesday, but they still trail the Blades by seven points.

Carrick has only tasted defeat three times since he arrived in October and all three of those losses have come away from home.

QPR head north in search of a first win since 17th December, failing to win any of their last 10 across all competitions.

The R's have lost their last two outings and are without a victory in four when playing away from home, suggesting Boro should have enough to get the job done.

WhatLuton Town v Burnley

When15:00, Saturday 18th February 2023
OddsLuton 12/5, Draw 12/5, Burnley 11/10

Luton Town face the unenviable task of trying to take something off runaway Championship leaders Burnley.

The Hatters sit fourth and have promotion hopes of their own after avoiding defeat in each of their last five league outings.

They are tough to beat on their own patch, having only lost three of their 15 fixtures at home and it's certainly not a foregone conclusion that Burnley return to winning ways after Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Watford.

Burnley's two defeats this campaign have both come away from Turf Moor and they don't offer enough appeal at 11/10 in the outright win market.

Backing under 2.5 goals appears a safer route for this accumulator when taking into account the strong defensive record of both clubs.

Burnley have conceded the joint fewest goals in the league (27), along with Sheffield United, and Luton rank next on the list with 31.

Black Cats to overcome improving Robins

WhatSunderland v Bristol City
WhereStadium of Light, Sunderland
When15:00, Saturday 18th February 2023
OddsSunderland 1/1, Draw 12/5, Bristol City 11/4

Sunderland have exceeded expectations this season to establish themselves as serious play-off contenders.

A run of four games without defeat in the league, winning each of their last two, has them sitting pretty in fifth ahead of the visit of 16th-placed Bristol City.

The Robins are enjoying a purple patch of their own with Wednesday's draw with Wigan Athletic extending their unbeaten streak to seven.

However, they've won just once away from home during that sequence and could come up short against a Black Cats side who have won three of their last four at home.

Sunderland sealed a 3-2 win in the reverse fixture in August and look in a good spot to make it back-to-back victories.
