Before becoming a Sports Journalist for Free Super Tips, Aaron spent three years studying Sports Journalism at the University of Sunderland while taking in the Black Cats' 'glory years' under Martin O'Neill. Now back in Northern Ireland he turns niche stats into predictions for FST, while he's one of the few people on this island who is equally comfortable at Windsor Park and the Aviva.

The Entertainers Accumulator
Monday – Crystal Palace vs Chelsea
While this has been another tough season for Chelsea, they look much better off than a Crystal Palace side who have seen their fans turn against the manager and the board. The Eagles come into this one having lost three of their last four matches, while Roy Hodgson has suffered 16 defeats in the Premier League against Chelsea.
The Blues won 3-1 at Aston Villa in their last game and Mauricio Pochettino’s side can build on that at Selhurst Park. However, the Blues have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 away trips, so back the Eagles to score in a defeat.
Tip: Chelsea to win & BTTS
Tuesday – RB Leipzig vs Real Madrid
RB Leipzig return to European action having won just one of their first five games in 2024. They’re up against a Real Madrid side who are flying right now, having crushed Girona 4-0 on Saturday to move five points clear at the top of La Liga.
Real have won all six games in the Champions League this season and that record should continue in Leipzig. However, the Spanish giants finished the group stage having conceded in four of their final five games, so back the Bundesliga outfit to get a goal.
Tip: Real Madrid to win & BTTS
Wednesday – Huddersfield vs Sunderland
Things are looking up for Sunderland boss Michael Beale, who has had a rough start on Wearside. However, he has seen his team secure seven points from their last three games, so they have every reason to be confident heading into this visit to fourth-bottom Huddersfield.
After a 5-3 defeat to Southampton at the weekend, the hosts look vulnerable against a Sunderland side who are on the outskirts of the playoffs. However, each of the Terriers’ last seven league games have finished with both teams finding the net, so back a high-scoring away win.
Tip: Sunderland to win & BTTS
Thursday – Ajax vs Bodo/Glimt
After a disastrous start to the season, there’s a real chance that Ajax can finish this campaign with European success. They drop into the Europa Conference League after finishing third in their Europa League group, but the Dutch giants have won nine of their last 13 Eredivisie games.
Ajax should prove too strong for a Bodo/Glimt team who haven’t played a competitive game since a 3-1 loss at Club Brugge in mid-December. However, the Norwegian side are known for being adventurous and each of their last four European ties have seen both teams score.
Tip: Ajax to win & BTTS
Friday – Raith Rovers vs Dundee United
Friday night sees the top two sides in the Scottish Championship go head-to-head, with league-leaders Dundee United in a great position to extend their four-point advantage. The leaders have won their last three games on the road, while Raith are on a five-game losing streak.
Raith Rovers head into this contest with both teams scoring in each of their last six home league games, so they should be good for a goal. However, it seems like the wheels are coming off their season just ahead of the run-in, so back a high-scoring away win.
Tip: Dundee United to win & BTTS
Saturday – Brentford vs Liverpool
Brentford picked up a vital victory at Wolves last weekend, but they face a difficult encounter with league leaders Liverpool on Saturday afternoon. Jurgen Klopp’s side return to his least favourite timeslot having seen both teams score in five straight games.
The Reds have won three of their last four and they can match Manchester City’s 3-1 win at the Gtech earlier this month. With Brentford seeing both teams score in eight of their last nine, they can get a goal in another defeat.
Tip: Liverpool to win & BTTS
Sunday – Sheffield United vs Brighton
Our acca wraps up at Bramall Lane on Sunday, where Brighton are hoping for another big win. The Seagulls were 5-2 winners when these two met in Sheffield in the cup last month. With the Blades losing three of their last four, they could be in for another defeat.
Chris Wilder has made Sheffield United more competitive since returning to the Steel City but his side look out of their depth against the Seagulls. The Blades have lost seven of their last 10 at home, so back them for another high-scoring defeat.
Tip: Brighton to win & BTTS
