Every day we will put a bet on a game and keep a running total throughout the season. The bets we make may not be earth shattering, although on occasion we will of course go ‘chasing the big win’.

We’re three from four after last night predicting that Man United would defeat Tottnenham by more than one goal at 7/5, so we are going great guns thus far and today we are looking to make a big splash with a cunning accumulator.

Tonight we think that Aston Villa will beat Hereford, Millwall will triumph over Morecombe, Brighton to surprise Sunderland, Leicester City win away at Bury and Wolves to do likewise at Northampton Town. It’s a five team accumulator and all wins must be secured in the first 90 minutes and not in extra time or via a penalty shoot out.

So we got 15/1 at Blue Square on our five sides winning within the first 90 minute period.

Aston Villa, Millwall, Brighton, Leicester City, Wolves at 15/1

Our running total charts our success, all starting with that original £5 stake.
