Roker Riches: No Sunderland game this weekend so we’re betting in the FA Cup!

Your weekly Roker Report betting preview of the weekend’s action is here!

Roker Riches /

Gav’s £50 gamble last week never paid off, but he’s still way ahead in the lead, with Rory the closest to him sat on just over ninety quid.

Remarkably, Tom won a bet that returned £52.50 yet still managed to find himself out of pocket.

There are no Sunderland bets this weekend so we’re focusing on the FA Cup and elsewhere - here are this week’s picks!

The Table...

The Banker’s Bonus...

Since we’re not submitting Sunderland bets this weekend, the banker has offered to make up for it by promising he’ll give us all a free £20 first goalscorer bet for Sunderland’s game next weekend with Ipswich at the Stadium of Light if the lads can come away from St Andrews on Tuesday night with a clean sheet.

Our Picks...

Walshie - @Walshie409

Wigan to beat West Ham: That ought to bring David Moyes down a peg or two. £4 returns £10.48.

*FREE £5 TREBLE* Man Utd, Wigan and Middlesbrough: These are the teams I think are going to win but won’t. £5 returns £33.10.

Gav - @Gav1879

Wolves & Fulham to win: There aren’t many games going off in the league this weekend but of those that are, I fancy Fulham and Wolves to win away from home. £10 returns £34.

*FREE £5 TREBLE* Boro, West Ham & Huddersfield to win: I fancy Boro to beat Brighton at home, whilst I think that West Ham and Huddersfield will be more than capable of turning over lower league opposition in Birmingham and Wigan respectively. £5 returns £61.03.

Rory - @RoryFallow

Nottingham Forest to Win: Considering how bad Hull looked last week, this should be easy money. £5 returns £15.

Wigan to beat West Ham BTTS: I smell an upset and David Moyes to go full Moyes. £5 returns £25.

*FREE £5 TREBLE* Middlesbrough, Coventry, Man City: Free hit! £5 returns £47.84.

Danny - @DJRoberts22

Blackburn, Dundee United & Galatasaray all to win: The not-so-risky treble. £10 returns £34.36.

Hearts, Bradford & Bristol City all to win: The risky treble. £10 returns £90.01.

*FREE £5 TREBLE* Huddersfield, Chelsea and Millwall all to win: Cheers banker! I need this win... £5 returns £20.62.

Bromley - @connorbromley

Bristol City and Brentford double: Bristol City were decent v Manchester City in the week and I think they can get back on the winning track at home to QPR. Brentford host Norwich - the Canaries have been poor this season and I feel they will struggle at Griffin Park. £5 returns £18.61.

*FREE £5 TREBLE* Boro, Spurs and Liverpool: Boro are the one I am worried about here, they host Premier League Brighton. But my thinking is Brighton will put some reserves out, which improves their chances. Spurs should beat Newport and Liverpool should beat West Brom £5 returns £17.28.

Graham - @AsylumDoors

German fourfold: I’m in Berlin again this weekend (pathetic) so I’ll go for Bayern, Dortmund & Leipzeig to win, with Koln & Augsburg to draw. £3 returns £25.02.

*FREE £5 TREBLE* Spurs, Swansea and Chelsea to win: I don’t see Newport or Newcastle springing a surprise and although Notts Couny could be a banana skin for Swansea, they’re in good form. £5 returns £16.29.

Dan Parker - @DGP202

Scott Sinclair to score first goal v Hibs: Going for this purely because Dafabet have price boosted it to 9/2. Bring home the bacon, Scotty. £4 returns £22.

*FREE £5 TREBLE* Boro, Huddersfield, and Liverpool to win: All have home advantage and I can see a Boro upset vs Brighton. £5 returns £26.09.
