So with luck in mind the cold end presents 'THE BIG ELEVEN'. Each week a selection from the Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two, Blue Square's Premier, North and South along with the four Scottish league divisions will be made and the cold end will be placing a massive 50p accumulator bet (huge amount I know) to see if we can win it big!! Over the weeks we'll see how close we get and hopefully win a huge cash sum to bolster the funds here at Cold End HQ. I've not done massive amounts of research and as in most accumulator bets I'm relying on a big chunk of good old fashioned luck!!
So here we have THE BIG ELEVEN - WEEK ONE (odds are from skybet.com) -
Premier League - Newcastle United win V Wigan Athletic 5/6 Championship - Reading win v Swansea City evens League One - Sheffield Wed win @ Yeovil Town 11/8 League Two - Stevenage win v Burton Albion 10/11 Blue Sq Prem - Mansfield Town win v Darlington evens Blue Sq South - Braintree Town win v Thurrock 2/5 Blue Sq North - Boston United win v Stalybridge 8/13 Scottish Prem - Iverness win v St Johnstone 5/4 Scottish 1st - Dunfermline win v Ross County 4/6 Scottish 2nd - Alloa to win @ Aidrie 5/4 Scottish 3rd - Arbroath to win v Clyde evens
A 50p accumulator pays £704.96 (odds of 1409/1!!) so we either win big or lose a small amount of money. What else can you buy with 50p these days???
