I hope you weren’t listening to us last week dear reader. Not a single one of us made any money!
For most of us though, it was a catastrophe. Gav lost £30 but he’s still miles ahead, and the majority of us after that just lost tenners. It didn’t quite pan out that way for Graham, however. To try and get himself out of trouble, Graham lumped £100 on a Bayern Munich & Borussia Dortmund double only for Dortmund to royally screw him. Surely there’s no way back now?
Hoping for better luck, here’s our predictions for this week along with a banker bonus free bet on Man City v Spurs, due to Sunderland avoiding defeat at Wolves last week.
The Bankers Bonus...
If Sunderland finally end their home game hoodoo, the banker will give every player a free £5 accumulator on next week’s Premier League fixtures (minimum five teams).
Gav - @Gav1879
Sunderland to win, 2/1: GET INSIDE ME! £50 returns £150.
Five team acca: I’m really feeling it this week. C’mon Watford, Bristol City, Portsmouth, Mansfield and Gateshead! £10 returns £151.69.
Manchester City -2, 3/1: Pep and the lairds will be too strong for Spurs. £10 returns £40.
Rory - @RoryFallow
Sunderland to win, 2/1: Despite a handsome accumulator win for me in midweek, I need a result in the riches. At 2/1, a win for the lads is a nice simple bet and it’s hopefully got a good chance of coming in. £5 returns £15.
West Ham to win with BTTS: It’s very annoying that West Ham have looked alright lately under the devil himself. Travelling to a Stoke side who are in poor form, that annoyance looks like it may well continue. £3 returns £18.
Manchester City & Tottenham to draw: I’m taking a bit of a risk since this is a free hit - and the tenner will give me a nice return. £10 returns £45.
Connor Bromley - @connorbromley
Sunderland to draw: I honestly believe we will get out of our year long home slump at the final opportunity against Birmingham next week - meaning I’ll settle for a point this week. £5 returns £17.
Brighton, Chelsea, Blackburn, Rotherham, Rangers, Athletic Bilbao and PSV to win: I just made a big accumulator of what I feel are dead certs. £3 returns £112.
Over 3.5 goals in City v Spurs: A free tenner from the Roker Report gods!? Should be a cracker this. I am wisely spending my free dollar on the amount of goals scored in the game. £10 returns £22.50.
Graham - @AsylumDoors
Sunderland to win 2-0: What have I got to lose? Easy money. Coleman will make us stronger defensively and Donny Love will score a brace. £10 returns £150.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Athletic Madrid: Surely the Mags will continue to be shite, Chelsea should overcome Southampton and Athletico Madrid are nailed on to do Alaves over. £40 returns £85.55.
City and Spurs over 2.5 goals: Harry Kane, David Silva, De Bruyne. Goals goals goals - until I bet on them. Expect a 0-0 now. £10 returns £45.
Danny - @DJRoberts22
Sunderland to draw, 12/5 - We’ve started brightly under the stewardship of Chris Coleman, so I will hope we can at least pick up a point on Saturday. The elusive Home win probably won’t come, but a draw is somewhat likely. £5 returns £17.
Heerenveen, Atletico Madrid, Roma, Rangers and PSV all to win: I’m not even sure why I’m even bothering anymore. I’m apparently terrible at this now. £10 returns £39.21.
Tom - @Tommyakki
Sunderland to draw: Fulham are a good team who will come up North looking for a win. Factor into the eqution how decimated the squad is through injuries and a draw looks a good result. £10 returns £35.
European acca: Inter, Roma, Atletico Madrid & Athletic Bilbao all to win on home soil. £20 returns £105.
Aguero to score 2+ goals: Free £10 bet being hoyed on the wee Argie to come up with the goods. £10 returns £40.
Dan Parker - @DGP202
Sunderland to win H/T & F/T, 17/4: Just blind stupidity makes me put this bet on. Fulham are a very strong side so it would take something to break our home curse convincingly. But that’s what I’m going for. £4 returns £21.
Over 1.5 goals before H/T, 23/20: My free £10 banker bonus on the City v Spurs game is a strange one. But, there has to be goals in this one - and right from the start too. £10 returns £21.75.
Ten team acca - It’s Christmas (nearly) so I’m going all out here on the off chance it funds my Christmas Eve drinks. Stoke, Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton, Blackburn, Exeter, Barca, Inter, PSG, and PSV to win. £10 returns 513.06.
Walshie - @Walshie409
Sunderland to win: We’ve got this far so I’d feel relatively cheated if we didn’t complete 12 months without a home win. So, since I’m rubbish at betting, I’m backing the Lads to win. £3 returns £9.60.
Eightfold: Watford, Inter Milan, Notts County, Atletico Madrid, Rangers, Chelsea, Brentford and Blackburn Rovers all to win. No idea who they’re playing. £1 returns £31.47.
Man City to win by 2 or more goals: Man City are going to give Tottenham a good old humping. £10 returns £45.
18+ only, T&C’s apply. Please gamble responsibly.
