If you want to combine all our football accumulator tips for today, the odds are nearly 38/1 for a five fold.

Football accumulator tips: July 20

Ayr vs Falkirk

Ayr began their campaign with a 7-0 thrashing of Berwick and threatened to then beat Premiership side Livingston before a late goal condemned them to a 2-1 defeat.

Two good performances on the road stand Ian McCall's men in good stead for back-to-back home matches, starting against Falkirk.

The Honest Men finished 16 points clear of their relegated visitors last season and are tipped to make it two wins from three as the first of our football tips for the weekend.

Dumbarton vs Queen of the South

Dumbarton scraped a 1-0 win at Annan in their opening match but that was followed by a 6-1 thrashing at Greenock Morton in which they were 5-0 down by half-time.

Queen of the South have had similar problems, losing 3-0 at home to group favourites Motherwell and then drawing 3-3 with Annan before picking up an extra point by winning the penalty shoot-out.

Both teams have had problems in defence so the goals should flow but Stephen Dobbie gives Queens more of a cutting edge up front, meaning an away win is added to our accumulator football bets.

Dundee vs Peterhead

These two teams have both made impressive starts and the Dens Park clash could go a long way to deciding who tops Group D.

Dundee are yet to concede after beating Raith 3-0 and drawing 0-0 with Cove before winning the shoot-out, while they also kept clean sheets in pre-season friendlies against Nottingham Forest and Blackpool.

Peterhead shared a goalless stalemate with Inverness on Tuesday night so a low-scoring match is expected and under 2.5 goals looks the way to go on our footy acca.

Edinburgh City vs Dunfermline

Edinburgh almost took St Mirren to a shoot-out in their opening match on Wednesday night but were beaten by a late penalty.

They now look to face an even tougher task against Dunfermline, who will have one foot in the next round with victory on Saturday.

They impressed with an opening 3-2 win at St Mirren and followed that up with a 6-0 thrashing of Albion Rovers, with all the goals coming in the first 53 minutes including a Kevin Nisbet hat-trick.

The goals are flowing and a third straight Dunfermline win is added to our football accumulator tips.

Elgin vs Stirling

Stirling head to League Two rivals Elgin looking to bounce back from a 6-1 rout against Arbroath on Wednesday and have been priced up as underdogs.

We're not reading too much into that result though, given they held Hibernian to a 1-1 draw four days earlier and their performance in midweek was not as bad as the scoreline suggested.

Having got their two toughest games out of the way, this is a match they can realistically win. They beat Elgin in three of their four meetings last season and another victory completes our football acca tips.
