Bet 1: Back Hull @ 4/6 - KO 15:00 BST
The hosts got off to a pretty decent start to Championship life last weekend as they went to title favourites, Aston Villa, and picked up a point. I didn't expect them to take anything from that game and I was surprised by how well they played.
The same can't be said for opponents, Burton Albion, as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Cardiff, but they did at least go on to right that wrong by winning 3-2 at Oldham in the EFL Cup on Tuesday.
Nevertheless, while Nigel Clough's side were scoring late goals to beat a League One club, Hull had their feet up as they received a bye through to the second round.
Bet 2: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Birmingham v Bristol City @ 1/1 - KO 15:00 BST
The Blues disappointed me last weekend as I fancied them to win at Ipswich but they were beaten 1-0. They missed a few chances in the first half of that game, however Harry Redknapp's men weren't short of goals on Tuesday as they put five past Crawley Town in a 5-1 EFL Cup win.
Another team who netted five times during the week was Bristol City as they thumped Plymouth 5-0. That came on the back of an opening weekend 3-1 victory against Barnsley and the Robins were also prolific in pre-season.
Bet 3: Back Everton @ 7/10 - KO 15:00 BST
I have included Everton in my Premier League Treble but as I have dubbed them the 'stand-out price of the opening Saturday', I have to put them in this Acca.

Bet 4: Back BTTS in Brighton v Man City @ 21/20 - KO 17:30 BST
Both teams to score is odds-against for Premier League new-boys, Brighton versus title favourites, Man City, and that surely has to be wrong.
Not only do The Seagulls have home advantage, they also have all the momentum from finishing second in the Championship last term.
Man City may have gone a lot closer to winning the title last year if they could defend. Pep Guardiola has kind of addressed that by signing some expensive, attacking full-backs, but I have a feeling that any success this year will be based on their performance in the attacking third and not the defensive one.
Bet 5: Back BTTS in Atletico GO v Coritiba @ 9/10 - KO 20:00 BST
Over in Brazil it's bottom against 10th in the Campeonato as the worst defence in the division take on a team who have scored twice in each of their last two outings.
There has been a goal at each end in four of Atletico GO's last five on this ground and they didn't even win any of them. When they did pick up a couple of victories earlier in the campaign, they scored three times against both Ponte Preta and Avai.
The visitors have gone seven away matches without keeping a clean sheet, but they have at least netted in three of their last four - including a four goal haul in one of them.
Bet 6: Back Toronto @ 4/6 - KO 23:00 BST
If we are still standing going into this sixth and final leg, I will be donning the Maple Leafand praying for a Toronto victory against Portland Timbers.
A home win is something that The Reds have delivered regularly at BMO Field this year as after drawing their two opening fixtures there, they have gone on to win eight of their next nine.
Portland are a decent outfit in their own right but they are only fifth in their Conference compared to Toronto's first in theirs, and The Timbers have been beaten in five of their last eight on the road.
