Week #36 Table


Gav - @Gav1879

It's another FA Cup weekend and we're down to the final four. Spurs are the form team in the Premier League and have experience of playing at Wembley already this season, and for some reason I fancy them to topple Chelsea. That, coupled with a Manchester City win over Arsenal, will give me £101.75 off twenty quid.

Elsewhere this week I'm going for a fourfold of European favourites. AZ Alkmaar, Bordeaux, Hamburg and Sevilla all to win returns £45.94 off a tenner.

You can’t ignore the FA Cup semi finals so I’m having a double on each result. Spurs v Chelsea will be close so I’ll have that to be a draw after 90 minutes but I fancy Manchester City to beat Arsenal comfortably. £5 on these outcomes will return £30.53.

Looking to the Premier League, I’m going with another double. A double of doubles, if you will. A win for Bournemouth will confirm their top flight status for another season, so they’ll be hungry to beat Middlesbrough and I’m confident that The Cherries will emerge victorious. The other half of this one is a little more risky, however - Burnley to beat Manchester United. It’s about time United lost and Burnley are canny at home, so odds of 9/2 on them are very tempting. On this flutter, a £5 stake will return £52.50.

It is FA Cup semi-final weekend and I can’t resist a bet on that. Don’t ask me why but I can see Arsenal beating City this weekend, despite their form being on a par with our own. I’ve gone for Dafabet’s price boosted odds of Arsenal to win and BTTS at 13/2.

As Rick Astley once said Never Gonna Give You Up, Never Gonna Let You Down, Never Gonna Run Around And Desert You. I feel the same way about my weekly accas, despite never winning. This week I have gone for: Hull, Swansea, Villareal, Sevilla, Lazio, Bayern, Basel, the Mags and Porto.

£5 on Arsenal to win and BTTS at 13/2 returns £37.50

£4 on this 9 team acca would return £118.90

For my first bet I'm going to take a punt on the Liverpool/Crystal Palace game. Liverpool have gone unbeaten in the last seven games while Sam Allardyce has unsurprisingly turned things around for Palace who have only lost once in their last seven - which includes impressive wins over Chelsea and Arsenal. I don't expect Palace to get anything from this game but they will give Liverpool a game.

With my other bet I'm going to put a double on the FA Cup semi-finals, Manchester City should have too much for a struggling Arsenal side and I fancy Spurs to overcome Chelsea in what should be a really tight game.

£10 on Liverpool to win and both teams to score returns £30

£10 on a Spurs/Man City double returns £50.88

There are slim pickings this week so I'm just going throw money at a double and a single this weekend.

My first bet will be betting on wins for Crewe Alexandra against Leyton Orient in League Two, while I'll also punt on Sheffield Wednesday to get a big win against Derby in their bid to reach the play-offs. I'll place a tenner on and that will win me £29.62.

My second bet will be on the FA Cup semi between Arsenal and City. I think Arsenal could steal this one and they the odds make it an interesting bet. I'll place a fiver on that, which will see me return £21.

This week I'm backing a North-East double with Newcastle to lose and Sunderland to win. Simple!

Sunderland to beat Boro - £5 returns £18

Newcastle to lose against Preston - £5 returns £32
