Week #37 Table

Gav - @Gav1879

I have absolutely no confidence in Sunderland getting anything this weekend, and with that in mind, I think the smart money this week is on the away team to come away from the Stadium of Light with all three points. £10 returns £23.75.

Elsewhere I'm going for a Brighton, Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday treble. That returns £49.29 off a tenner.

My losing streak is reaching David Moyes levels. Neither of us seem like getting any luck but I reckon a fiver on Bournemouth to win under 2.5 goals gives me a slight chance, as Sunderland whimper out of the Premier League. With odds of 9/2, I stand to win £27.50 and The Lads stand to drop into The Championship.

Saturday's clash at Selhurst Park is a meeting of two teams going in opposite directions. Burnley are currently in free fall but Sam Allardyce has steered Crystal Palace to the dizzy heights of twelfth. Given The Clarets away form, a win for Palace is almost a certainty but Big Sam's men have only kept one clean sheet in their last six. So I'll give myself a little leeway by backing both teams to score and Palace to come out on top. At 3/1, £5 returns a modest 20 quid.

The clever money is on Sunderland to lose. However, I am not clever, and I can’t bring myself to bet against the Lads. I’ve gone for a 1-1 draw instead. £4 on a correct result (1-1) at 11/2 returns £26/

My acca this week is on Hull, Palace, Madrid, Benfica, Fenerbahce, Oxford, and Man Utd to win. £3 on 7 team acca returns £151.38.

I don't want to bet on Sunderland to lose, even though we usually do but saying that I think we will get something at home to Bournemouth this weekend as I can see a score draw on the cards but unfortunately that won't be enough... £10 on Sunderland/Bournemouth to finish a draw and BTTS returns £40.

I can also see Hull's good form continuing as they visit St Mary's to play an inconsistent Southampton side with little left to play for. A Hull win will put us out of our misery as our relegation will be confirmed and we'll have a season of 46 dour defensive performances to look forward to. Joy. £10 on Hull to win returns £55.

For the Lads' game on Saturday, as David Moyes will say, we'll give our all and carve out good chances and deserve the win, but only pick up a point.

So yes. My bet this week on our shitty game will be a draw. £3 will see me return £10.50.

My second bet will be Plymouth to beat Crewe, Fleetwood to get the three points against Port Vale, Oxford to win against Shrewsbury and finally Reading to beat Wigan in the Championship. I'll place £10 on that will see me win £97.20.

To continue my fine losing streak this week I will back five Premier League teams to win and also Sunderland to win over 2.5 goals (section me).

Sunderland, Man City, Southampton, Crystal Palace & Man Utd to win - £10 returns £162, whilst Sunderland to win over 2.5 goals - £10 returns £50.
