For Friday night’s football we’ve found a feisty four-fold Acca brimming with tons of value. We’ll be taking a look at some top-of-the-table proceedings from Serie A and the Championship where we have the Turin derby between Juventus and Torino and Bournemouth taking on Nottingham Forest. We’ll also be looking at Dunfermline taking on Partick Thistle in Scotland and Ligue 1 champions Lille are at home to relegation-threatened Metz.

19:45 Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest: Both Teams to Score

With two games in hand over Blackburn Rovers behind them in third place, Bournemouth have a fantastic opportunity to put even more distance between the two sides. As it currently stands they’re four points ahead and a win here will surely have Rovers doubting their ability to catch the Cherries. Their Championship form has seen them win three games in-a-row but they face a stern test here against a Forest side who have lost just one of their last eight fixtures in all competitions.


The hosts have won just two of their last five at home in the league, drawing one and losing two and kept just one clean sheet over those five games. Forest’s away form isn’t as good as their overall stats but they’ve still won three, losing the other two and scored in four of those five games. Bournemouth are odds on with punters here but Forest’s scoring record is hard to argue with, the best value here then is in backing Both Teams to Score.

19:45 Juventus vs Torino: Juventus to Win to Nil

Juventus’ early season defensive problems seem to be in the distant past, particularly at home where they’ve now kept five clean sheets over their last seven home Serie A games. Of their last five, they’ve won four of them 2-0, the other being a tough clash of contrition between themselves and third-placed Napoli that ended 1-1. Torino have only scored in three of their last nine away Serie A games and have a terrible record when travelling north across Turin to take on their city rivals. The Old Lady are short odds to win here but with their excellent record of clean sheets on home turf we’re loving the odds here for the hosts to Win to Nil. 

19:45 Dunfermline vs Partick Thistle: Both Teams to Score

You might have to go digging in your TV listings to find this one but BBC Scotland are showing this Scottish Championship clash. Both sides have pretty decent overall form coming into this one. Dunfermline have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five fixtures while Partick Thistle share the same record over their five most recent games in all competitions. The Pars have also won two, drawn two and lost one over their last five at home, scoring eight and conceding seven while Thistle have won two and drawn three over their last five on their league travels, scoring 10 and conceding five.

The hosts have been averaging 1.0 goals per home league game so far this season while the away side have been netting 2.09 goals on their jaunts and with both in decent goal-scoring form of late the best odds here are Both Teams to Score.

20:00 Lille vs Metz: Lille to Win to Nil

Neither side are coming into this Ligue 1 clash in the best of shape, the defending champions have won just two of their last five league games, drawing one and losing two with Metz winning just one of their last five, drawing one and losing three. The real difference between the sides here though is the contrasting home vs away form stats.

Les Dogues have won three of their last five on home soil in all competitions, drawing one and losing one, scoring nine and conceding eight (five of which were against PSG). Les Grenats have won two of their last five on the road, drawing one and losing one, scoring just three and conceding five. A win would take Metz two places clear of the relegation zone, however with a scoring record of just two goals over their last five overall league games Lille should come out of this one unscathed. We’re looking at Lille to Win to Nil here.

Friday accumulator tips:

Bournemouth v Nottingham Forest: Both teams to score
