The final day of the Championship takes place on Saturday, with some huge games in store that will have consequences at both ends of the table, as well as a handful of fixtures from the Premier League.

From the selection on offer from the top two divisions, I have hand-picked five matches to build a 5/1 accumulator. Below I have given my reasonings for this weekend's football accumulator tips.

Football Accumulator Tips

  • Arsenal to beat AFC Bournemouth
  • Newcastle United to beat Burnley
  • Nottingham Forest to beat Sheffield United
  • Ipswich Town to beat Huddersfield Town
  • Leicester City to beat Blackburn Rovers

Arsenal to beat AFC Bournemouth

After holding on to a valuable three points against rivals Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, Premier League title challengers Arsenal will be looking to secure another three points as they welcome Bournemouth to the Emirates Stadium. I fancy the Gunners to get another victory because they simply need to pick up maximum points to have any real chance of dethroning Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta's side have been brilliant to watch this year and lead the way in the top-flight for goals scored (85). The Cherries may be heading to north London off the back of two victories, but they are coming up against one of the best teams in the division, who are a tough nut to crack defensively. I'm backing Arsenal to grab the win here, and I think they can grab a few goals too.

Newcastle United to beat Burnley

Following there 5-1 blitz of Sheffield United last weekend, which relegated the Blades, I fancy Newcastle United to pick up another three points against fellow strugglers Burnley, despite the game taking place at Turf Moor.

The Magpies attack is heading into this game in fine form and I think the likes of Alexander Isak, Anthony Gordon, Bruno Guimaraes and Harvey Barnes will prove to be too much for the Clarets to handle on Saturday.

With four games left and one point separating Newcastle from Manchester United in sixth, Eddie Howe's men will need to take maximum points in games like this if they wish to qualify for the Europa League next year.

Nottingham Forest to beat Sheffield United

The Blades' relegation looks like it might just have taken the wind out of their sails as they host another team battling for survival in Nottingham Forest this weekend. The Tricky Trees have won just one of their last five but I think that they can secure a huge three points at Bramall Lane on Saturday.

Nuno Espirito Santo has no fresh injury concerns for this clash, and he should have a clean bill of health heading into the game, which could see effective forward Taiwo Awoniyi play a part in south Yorkshire.

Sheffield United have a lengthy injury list in comparison and that is why I think Forest can get the result they desperately need.

Ipswich Town to beat Huddersfield Town

Ipswich Town may only need a point to secure promotion to the Premier League this weekend but I'm backing them to cruise past Huddersfield Town, who are relegated in all but name.

The Tractor Boys have been incredible to watch all season and I think they will want to put on a show in front of a buoyant home crowd at Portman Road on Saturday.

Leicester City to beat Blackburn Rovers

Leicester City will be back in the Premier League next season and while the Championship title is already secured, I believe they will want to bow out as centurions, which can only be achieved by beating Blackburn Rovers at the King Power Stadium.

Rovers' defensive record is woeful with 74 goals conceded this campaign, and I think the Foxes can put them to the sword on Saturday, which could throw Blackburn's Championship status into doubt. With the likes of Jamie Vardy, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Stephy Mavididi and more, the hosts can run riot against a very fragile defence to end the season in style.
