An alternative football accumulator market which continues to rise in popularity is the half-time result, where there are often some cracking odds to be found.
This is particularly true if you can pinpoint the games where the underdog has a chance of getting their nose in front before the break. From Saturday's fixture list I have picked out a half-time win treble paying just under 14/1 with Coral. Read on for my first half football betting tips…
Bournemouth v Blackburn
Bournemouth have been going great guns so far this season under highly-rated manager Eddie Howe. The Cherries sit just two points off the play-off places, and this match against struggling Blackburn Rovers should hold no fears for the home faithful. Rovers are struggling for goals, and have been losing at half-time in three of their four away fixtures this season.
Selection: Bournemouth to win the first half
Burnley v Charlton
Burnley's strike partnership of Danny Ings and Sam Vokes have been deadly in front of goal this season, with their combined tally of nine goals propelling the Clarets into second position in the league table. Burnley look unstoppable at the minute and I'd expect them to make neat work of a struggling Charlton outfit in a match they should dominate from the start. Burnley have been winning in four of their eight league matches at half-time, and this match presents a golden opportunity for them to make that five from nine.
Selection: Burnley to win the first half
Leicester v Barnsley
Leicester have been impressive on home turf this season, and should not be troubled by the visit of lowly Barnsley to the King Power Stadium. The Foxes have been winning at half-time in three of their opening eight league fixtures, whilst they Tykes, who sit second from bottom, are the only club in the division yet to earn an away point this season.
Selection: Leicester to win the first half
