ROKER RICHES: Sunderland are EVENS away at struggling Bradford - will we stem the flow to win?

Despite only winning one of our last six games, we’re the favourites to win with the bookies this weekend at Bradford. Are we seriously that well placed to win, or will Bradford manage a surprise victory?

Danny Roberts

Well we certainly do look like we’re back on song ladies and gentleman!

Despite Sunderland not winning at Coventry last week, a couple of our gamblers still managed to rake in some coin. Rory profited from Newcastle (and Cadiff’s) misfortune by betting against them, while Danny brought in the biggest profit with £50! He can thank the likes of Newport County and AFC Flyde for that one.

Our table is starting to take shape, with Chris well behind everyone and Dan well ahead. Plenty of money still to be won (but probably lost) though! Let’s see if we’ll get any dramatic changes this week.

The Table...

The Banker’s Bonus...

Sunderland have only won one game in six now. With that in mind, the Banker will double all winning Sunderland bets if they leave Valley Parade with three points.

Our Picks...

Gav - @Gav1879

Over 2.5 goals in the Sunderland v Bradford game: I honestly have no idea if we’ll win because our form is so weird at the minute, but there probably will be goals so I’ll opt to bet on that this week. £20 returns £40.

Fourfold: Manchester United, Middlesbrough, Accrington and Lincoln. £10 returns £145.

Rory - @RoryFallow

Josh Maja to score first: This is pretty good value at 7/2 so let’s have our young goal machine open the scoring at Valley Parade. £10 returns £45.

Wigan & Burnley to win: Wigan are great value at 2/1 considering they’re playing bottom of the league Preston. They served me well last week, so I’ll stick with Burnley as they host Huddersfield. £5 returns £32.25.

Danny - @DJRoberts22

Over 2.5 goals in Bradford v Sunderland: We can’t keep a clean sheet and we’ve got a couple of goals in us. £5 returns £9.95.

Treble - Burnley, Sheffield United and Lincoln all to win: I can’t see this one losing if i’m honest with you. Sheffield United and Lincoln are both on form and playing relatively easy home games, while Burnley are up against a side who can’t score goals. £15 returns £85.75.

Bromley - @connorbromley

Sunderland to win: I am feeling super confident for this weekend and I think the lads will get back to winning ways after two straight draws. £50 returns £97.50.

Burnley, Man Utd and Spurs to win: My two/three team accas have been poor this season (thank god I don’t actually bet!) but I feel confident that this one will get me back in the game. £10 returns £38.

Dan Parker - @DGP202

Sunderland to win and over 2.5 goals: We’ll turn it around on the road at Bradford and score plenty while doing so. £10 returns £30.

Kane to score 2 or more: Had the pleasure of watching Harry Kane live on Wednesday (Messi was decent too I guess) and the big man looks like he’s back in form. £10 returns £28.

Chris - @chrissavedlatin

Sunderland to win: This is why you don’t gamble kids! I’m going for a simple win for Sunderland. £20 returns £38.18.

Wolves, Everton and Manchester United to win: A treble that should but probably won't come in, as it’s me and I have no luck. £10 returns £117.34.

Graham - @AsylumDoors

Sunderland/Bradford both teams to score: I really fancy us to hand out a hammering this week, however there’s no doubt we’ll concede because we are poor defensively. £5 returns £8.63.

Burnley, Watford, Dortmund and Bayern to win: The German champions are the only team to have never let me down so hopefully that continues and is complemented by home wins for Burnley, Watford and Dortmund respectively. £5 returns £39.85.
