Tottenham v Man Utd part of both teams to score accumulator this weekend

After the excitement and drama of the mid-week FA Cup third round replays our attention turns back to league football for this weekend's 'Both Teams To Score' accumulator. There is a full programme from the top four divisions in England and we've poured over the stats for the upcoming fixtures. We've picked out four games that will hopefully provide a lucrative return, with a 10 accumulator on the fixtures below providing a potential 59.80....

Tottenham v Man Utd - Both teams to score @ odds of 1/2 with Paddy Power

We begin our accumulator with a look at Sunday afternoon's live Premier League match between Tottenham and league leaders Manchester United. Both sides are enjoying fine runs of form as Spurs go into the match off the back of a six-game unbeaten run in the league, while United are unbeaten in 10.

Spurs actually won 3-2 when the two teams met at Old Trafford earlier this season and we could be in for goals galore again this weekend. United have scored at least one goal in 82% of their away matches this season and a red hot Robin van Persie will fancy his chances of getting on the scoresheet. However, they remain defensively suspect, keeping just two clean sheets in 11 away league games, and with Nemanja Vidic out injured they might struggle to keep Spurs at bay. Both teams to score at 4/7 with PaddyPower looks a decent punt at this stage and could be a nice way to hopefully round off Saturdays successful punts.

Stats Breakdown

Tottenham at home: Scored an average of 1.55 goals & conceded 1 goal per game.
Man Utd away: Scored an average of 2.36 goals & conceded 1.36 goals per game.

Crystal Palace v Bolton - Both teams to score @ odds of 4/7 with Paddy Power

We drop down a division for our next pick and we take a look at two teams who were in FA Cup third round replay action on Tuesday. They enjoyed mixed results as Palace were thumped 4-1 by Stoke but there was better news for Bolton as they stunned Premier League side Sunderland 2-0.

The defeat leaves Palace, who are fourth in the Championship currently, to focus on the league, where they have won just one of their last seven. They have failed to keep a single clean sheet during that run but they remain an exciting attacking force as they have scored at least one goal in 100% of their games at home. In contrast, Bolton have conceded at least once in 100% of their away games, while scoring at least one in 85% on their travels. Bolton will be buoyant after their FA Cup success and they could serve up an exciting treat for this weekend's accumulator with PaddyPower bookmakers.

Stats Breakdown

Crystal Palace at home: Scored an average of 2.54 goals & conceded 1.23 goals per game.
Bolton away: Scored an average of 1.46 goals & conceded 2 goals per game.

Derby v Nottingham Forest - Both teams to score @ odds of 8/13 with Paddy Power

We remain in the Championship for our third selection and there is a cracking East Midlands derby in store on Saturday lunchtime. Neither 12th placed Derby nor 9th placed Nottingham Forest can boast anything remotely close to form at the moment, although Alex McLeish did finally get his first win as Forest manager with a 2-1 success against Peterborough last weekend.

Both sides will still fancy their chances of making the play-offs so there is even more than just local bragging rights at stake. Derby go into the game having conceded at least one goal in 85% of their matches at Pride Park this season, although they remain a potent attacking threat having scored in 92% of games at home. This is a derby that is rarely short of entertainment and Saturday's could pay dividends from a goalscoring perspective.

Stats Breakdown

Derby at home: Scored an average of 2.23 goals & conceded 1.23 goals per game.
Nottingham Forest away: Scored an average of 1.31 goals & conceded 1.54 goals per game.

Peterborough v Hull - Both teams to score @ odds of 4/7 with Paddy Power

Our final selection is another Championship affair as struggling Peterborough take on high-flying Hull. Peterborough find themselves down in 22nd in the league table but there certainly hasn't been any shortage of excitement as 67% of their matches have gone over 2.5 goals this season, including 100% of their last eight in the league. They remain defensively woeful as they have conceded at least one in 92% of their home games, which will be a real worry when they take on Hull.

Steve Bruce's side are right in the mix for promotion as they currently sit in second place in the table but last weekend's 3-1 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday suggests there are chinks in the armour. They have enough about them to score at Peterborough but they will give the opposition chances as they have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight away league games.

Stats Breakdown

Peterborough at home: Scored an average of 1.62 goals & conceded 2.15 goals per game.
Hull away: Scored an average of 1.31 goals & conceded 1.23 goals per game.

A 10 four-match accumulator with PaddyPower.com returns odds of just under 5/1 and would provide a healthy return of 59.80 this weekend.
