Wow, some reckless betting from our man in France has seen a change at the top of the leaderboard, although truth be told it wasn't a great week for any one with losses for each an every one of us. We need a change in fortune and fast!

On to this week's picks:

Simon Walsh

Liverpool have picked up a little bit since their rather embarrassing home defeat to Aston Villa. At the same time we looked incredibly flat against Spurs, so I'm not sure exactly how we're going to bounceback in a matter of days. I think however that we do have enough to get something from the game and shouldn't be quite as unfavoured as the bookies make it.

There's not a great deal of action elsewhere on Wednesday. This is a bit of a problem to be honest so rather than go mental with lower league Scotland, I'm just going to go for a very ordinary double. Hopefully it pays off.

  • Sunderland Vs Liverpool Draw & Under 2.5 Goals - 10/3 - £3 Stake
  • Everton & Tamworth Both Win - 5/1 - £2 Stake

Dan Williams

I've made a real mess of things on here recently, throwing away an incredible £20 last week, so it's time to get back to winning ways. Unfortunately, I don't think that's what Sunderland will do at Anfield, despite the home team's horrific ability to get stuffed by Aston Villa. If they do score, it's likely to be Suarez, so the double makes sense to me.

Second Up. Teams. Lots of teams, and if it all went to plan, I'd be a rich man. No doubt Wigan will beat Man Utd or something. But it's worth a try.

  • Liverpool to win, Suarez first goal - 3/1 - £5
  • Swansea, Man Utd, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Watford, Swindon to win - 17/1 - £5

Karl Jones

Liverpool might be steadily climbing the table, but Anfield isn't the fortress it once was (Liverpool's home record this season is W4 D3 L3), so there should certainly be no fear from us to go there and get a result. Despite the tempting price of an away win, I'm going to hedge my money in this one.

Elsewhere, Peterborough's winning run came to an end last time out but face the bottom club again this week - as Barnsley slipped to the foot of the table and sacked their manager in the process. I'm not going to put my fortunes (I mean hopes, £31 isn't much!) on a team just one place better off, but instead go for something more assured, like Dwight Gayle getting his eighth goal in nine games. Bury have become more competitive since Kevin Blackwell took charge but haven't won in six, table-toppers Tranmere should be able to claim their seventh win on the road.

  • Sunderland to win or draw (double chance) - 2/1 - £4 Stake
  • Dwight Gayle to score at any time (Peterborough vs Barnsley), Tranmere to beat Bury - 3.87 - £4 Stake

David Boyle

Following some poor picks I'm going back to what was a successful strategy for me a while back when betting on Sunderland and that is the overs/unders market, so its the old favourite pick of under 2.5 goals this week.

Away from Sunderland I am going to keep things simple with a New Years Day Premier League double starting with the lunchtime kickoff where I expect West Brom to beat a freefalling Fulham and also West Ham to get back to winning ways against Norwich City who have a few injury concerns.

  • Liverpool vs Sunderland, under 2.5 goals - 17/4 - £2.50 Stake
  • West Brom and West Ham to win - 4.3/1 - £2.50 Stake
