For our Wednesday night accumulator, we’ll be checking in on four title races across Europe. First up, we’ll be looking at Scottish Premiership leaders Rangers who travel to Edinburgh to take on a Hibernian side who have lost both of their most recent home games.
Then to Italy, where second-placed AC Milan travel to third-from-bottom Genoa, while in France PSG can extend their Ligue 1 lead to 15 points with a home win over Nice. Our final destination is La Liga, where Real Madrid face Atletic Bilbao on home turf. Let’s dig into the markets then and find some value bets.

Easter Road has been a pretty unwelcoming ground for Rangers over the last few seasons, winning just twice in their last six attempts. Hibs haven’t been beating them, but four home draws against Rangers is nothing to be ashamed of and the 2-2 in 2020 and the 5-5 in 2018 were cracking matches in particular.
They’ve won two of their last five at home, drawing one and losing two – scoring six and conceding eight. The visitors’ away league form is mightily impressive; winning all six of their most recent games. On form they should win this class, but that Easter Road hoodoo could well strike again and with Hibs in good goal-scoring form, the value option here is Both Teams To Score.

With Napoli visiting Sassuolo at the same time, and most likely coming away with a win, Milan will need victory here to remain three points behind the leaders in Serie A. With their city rivals Inter just a point in arrears, Milan cannot afford any slip-ups. The good news is, the home side have won just one game so far this season and the visitors have won here in three of their last four visits.
Both Teams to Score has landed in four of Genoa’s six Serie A games played at home this season, it has also come up in six of The Rossoneri’s seven away league games. While we could play it safe and go for that, we should also mention that the away side have won five of their seven away games. Genoa do make it tough on visiting teams, but Milan’s goal-scoring form of 30 goals compared to just 17 for the home side should see them take all three points.

PSG are walking away with the league already and are simply unstoppable domestically, although you’d expect from a team with the likes of Lionel Messi, who won yet another Ballon D’or midweek, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar leading the line. The Parisians have won all seven of their home league games this season, however they’ve only kept two clean sheets over that period.
Nice are third in the table, and their away form has seen them win three of the last five on their travels. Over previous encounters here at the Parc de Princes, Both Teams To Score has landed in four of the last five matches. With the hosts conceding so many at home and the visitors averaging 1.86 goals per away game, we have to do something with a Both Teams To Score bet. Messi and Co are averaging 2.71 goals per home league game, and we reckon they’ll make it eight straight home Ligue Un wins here – even without the injured Neymar.
Real Madrid have now won eight of their last nine fixtures in all competitions, drawing the other. Meanwhile, at home in La Liga they’re unbeaten over their six games. Bilbao’s results aren’t great with four draws and one loss over their last five. However, in three of those draws they clawed back from losing positions to get a point.
It’s hard to make an argument for the visitors getting anything here, but there’s no value in the home win price for Los Blancos. Real have scored at least two goals in four of their last five La Liga games, in all six of their most recent fixtures in all competitions. The hosts to score Over 1.5 goals is the best option here.
