Week #34 Table

This Week's Bonus Prize...

If Sunderland can manage to score a goal this weekend, the banker promises to give all players a free fiver to spend on a goalscorer bet next week.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score at any time is a paltry 4/7 but let's be honest, it's absolutely nailed on isn't it? £20 on that returns £31.43.

I'm also plumping on a fourfold of favourites - Chelsea, Fulham, Portsmouth and Hearts winning would return me £55.68 off a tenner.

I’m sick of losing so I’m going low risk on our game. In our last two outings, we’ve been level at half time before succumbing to the inevitable in the second half, so 3/1 for the first half to end level, followed by Manchester United claiming the victory in the second half, is a good shout. As per usual, I’m laying down a fiver.

Swansea will still be smarting after their collapse against Spurs in midweek but they couldn’t ask for better opponents this week. There’s often one team who sleepwalk into danger and West Ham are in shocking form at the moment, so The Swans will fancy themselves to get back on track at The London Stadium. I’m taking Swansea to win with both teams to score, which could return £30, from a £5 stake.

I have no money this week because I’ve bet big on the Masters (Rahm and McIlroy if you were asking). Therefore, I’m putting just £4 on an unlikely Sunderland draw against United. We’re rubbish admittedly but they are nowhere near as good as they should be so I’m backing the Lads to nick a point.

This week’s acca - stop laughing at the back - is just £3 on Spurs, City, Everton, PSG, PSV, Juve, and Real Madrid in their big derby game.

Sunderland haven't scored for nine hours and 45 minutes of Premier League football and I can't see that goalless streak ending against Manchester United. Particularly with the visitors on a 20 game unbeaten run but with that unbeaten run being the least productive in Premier League history - due to the fact they drew half those games - a nil-nil may not be a bad bet.

For my other bet I'm going to go for a big acca and hope to get lucky, so I'm backing wins for Spurs, Man City, Chelsea, Wigan, Leeds, Sheffield United, Bolton, Blackpool, Portsmouth, Celtic and Hearts.

Danny Roberts - @DJRoberts22

As always, I think Sunderland but it's probably not worth betting on that as Manchester United are big favourites. Therefore, Dafabet is running a price boost for Sunderland to score first and I will take them up on that offer. So I'll place £3 on and, with 7/2 odds, will see me have a £22.50 return.

My second bet will be an acca, punting on wins for Wigan, Atalanta, Cambridge United, Portsmouth and Celtic. A £10 bet will give me £53.65 back.

I’m still in profit, although I’m not sure how, I’m just jammy - similar to how Sunderland are still not mathematically relegated. Anyway, this week we take on a Manchester United side who are struggling for goals, and with Sunderland failing to score in 10 of the last 11, I’m going to base my Sunderland bet on a low scoring game.

I’m also backing five favourites in the hope of getting some much-needed money on board!

Sunderland to win under 2.5 goals - 14/1 - £7.50 returns £112.50

Man City, Spurs, Newcastle, Wigan and Celtic to win - £17.50 returns £108.00
