The Premier League continued to deliver drama by the bucketful over the weekend, and with a heavy top-flight fixture flow between now and the end of the 2019/20 campaign, supporters have tons of high-octane action to look forward to.
There is yet another jam-packed mid-week schedule of action to consume over the coming days – and running alongside the more popular match result and goals markets for the games are the often overlooked but equally lucrative corners and cards options offered by the bookies.
Those particular markets require some extra elbow-grease and research to find trends worth backing – and that can sometimes be a little off-putting.
However, at FST we’ve done all the hard work to bring you the very best value in the corners and cards markets this week – and below, we’ve compiled a five-fold accumulator based on our research that comes in at a tasty 16/1
Don’t forget – you can also find all of our match previews and betting tips for the division’s mid-week matches on our Premier League predictions page.
