Roker Riches - FA Cup Special & Rachel Wyse

No game for us lot this weekend, but that doesn't mean you can't make yourself a little bit richer. That is, if you follow the advice of our experts. Gavin Callaghan, who had a fantastic 40/1 winner not so long ago, was outfoxed last week by Mrs Roker Report who had a stunning 125/1 winner. Who'll be right this week? You'll have to read Gavin's latest column and find out...

The FA Cup returns this weekend and with no Red & White tie to look forward to, I’m turning my attention to the SPL and the Old Firm Derby.

If you were on board with the correct time of the goal in last weekend’s bitter defeat then congratulations. 4/1 gives a nice return for a modest stake so I hope you were on board.

As for this weekend I believe Celtic will take all three points at Celtic Park. I’m going for a scorecast here. Celtic to win 2-1 with Sunderland old boy Anthony Stokes to score the last goal of the game at a massive 40/1.

Elsewhere, to keep an interest over the weekend’s games, the football league is really starting to heat up. It doesn’t seem too long ago that Sunderland were making the trips to Southend, Rotherham and Brighton for league games. How far we have come. Still, if I’m having a punt then there is money to be made and I think Fred’s promotion contender multiple is real value so get on...

Callaghan's Best Bet: Swansea, Southampton, Peterborough & Wycombe All To Win @ 9/1

Mrs Roker Report's Best Bet: Chelsea, Stoke, Macclesfield & Hearts All To Win @12/1

In terms of the racing, it was great to see action back at Newbury after the tragic scenes a week ago. Let’s hope nothing or the like eve happens again at a racecourse in Britain. I already have one eye on Cheltenham and I'm lending my support to Sky Sports News presenter Rachel Wyse, in the St Patricks Day Derby.

Rachel said in the build up to the big day:

"Its set to be an incredible day for such a worthy cause, Cancer Research, and its safe to say I'm very excited and equally nervous about the race. Getting help from some of the best in the business, AP McCoy, Jonjo O'Neill and Andrew Balding, and a horse from legendary Irish owner JP McManus makes it all that bit more special. If I raise a nice amount of money for the charity and get through the finish line in one piece it will all be worth the hard work!"

I along with the rest of Roker Report, are sure it will be worth it. You can sponsor her by heading here - and follow her on Twitter for daily updates by clicking HERE
