Whether you go for a couple of value picks from the lower leagues, a ten team whopper from all around Europe or a simple Premier League accumulator, placing an acca is a staple of the weekend for most football punters.
Our traders have had a dig into the archives to find out who exactly has caused the most punting pain this year. Which teams have let down the most accas when all other selections came in? Below is a list of exactly how many accumulators Premier League teams have let down so far in 2016.
Arsenal – 18,330
Perhaps not a surprise to see Arsenal on this list. They have long had a reputation as bottlers and their 11 draws and 4 losses so far in 2016 denied many punters a big win. Over 18,000 in fact.
Man United – 17,156
Old Trafford has been a turbulent place ever since Alex Ferguson started collecting his pension. United failed to win in 50% of their games last season and failing to win against the likes of Watford and Burnley this season haven’t helped punters cash in on what used to be a banker leg.
Liverpool – 16,759
Liverpool have been playing exhilarating football under Jurgen Klopp but losing to Burnley when big favourites, put an end to many punters hopes. Draws to WBA and Norwich last season also played a part in denying 16,759 punters a big pay day.
Chelsea – 13,591
Last season was Chelsea’s worst since the 00-01 season, combine that would some ropy results earlier in this campaign and it equates to over 13,591 accumulators tumbling on the final leg.
West Ham – 12,225
West Ham are something of a surprise inclusion in this list. They would usually go off close to evens in most fixtures and are probably included in most optimistic accas to add another zero to the potential winnings figure. 12,225 brave punters have been let down by the Hammers.
