ROKER RICHES: Sunderland favourites at evens with the bookies to beat Plymouth - fair price?

Sunderland are looking to make it five wins on the bounce at Plymouth this weekend, a feat which would also see them extend their unbeaten run to eight games. The Lads are evens with the bookies to get all three points - can they do it?

Roker Report | Danny Roberts

Sunderland keep winning and the money keeps rolling in!

Just look at some of those healthy balances. Gav and Dan have over £400 each now as both lads won two bets last week. Not only did they predict Sunderland would beat Southend in a game containing plenty of goals, they also each had an acca come in. Happy days.

Connor and Graham were also successful last time out, laying fifty sheets on a Sunderland win which is becoming Connor’s signature flutters. With their other bet losing, this meant they recorded the same winnings of £42.50, which is still very canny.

All this winning means there’s another Banker’s Bonus to be had too. Every gambler has a free £10 bet on Arsenal vs Liverpool this weekend, giving them the opportunity for some risk free cash. Will they play it safe or go high stakes?


The Table...


The Banker’s Bonus...

The banker is very unhappy at having to give away yet another bonus this week, so he’s deciding to shake things up. Rather than give something away if Sunderland win, he’ll give each player a free £5 Championship treble if they LOSE to Plymouth Argyle.


Our Picks...

Gav - @Gav1879

Sunderland to win & over 1.5 goals: The boys keep doing well by me so I’m placing faith in their ability again. Plymouth have conceded a tonne of goals and we’ve never failed to hit the net this season... so expect a 0-0 draw. £20 returns 49.

Fivefold: Watford, Spurs, Sheff Utd, Barnsley, Lincoln. Think big! £10 returns £548.45.

FREE BET - Arsenal to win & BTTS: I’m just copying from Rory. £10 returns £50.

Rory - @RoryFallow

Sunderland to win: This £50 stake lark has worked for Connor so I’m basically copying. £50 returns £95.

Watford to win under 2.5 goals: Another narrow loss for the mags, obviously. £10 returns £55.

FREE BET - Arsenal to win & BTTS: This is a tough one to call as I think there’ll be goals in the game but it could go either way. With this being a free bet though, I’ll go for Arsenal since their odds are higher. £10 returns £50.

Danny - @DJRoberts22

Over 2.5 goals in Sunderland v Southend: Plymouth are scoring goals currently (although they’ve not played against Jon McLaughlin) and so are we - so a 2-1 or 3-0 Lads win is likely in my eyes. £10 returns £18.60.

Treble - Everton, Barnsley & Lincoln to win: I need a win this week, so punting for home favourites again. £10 returns £55.51.

FREE BET - Over 2.5 goals: They both can score goals, so I’m hoping for a goal fest! £10 returns £15.60.

Bromley - @connorbromley

Sunderland to win by more than one goal: Well, it is a long trip to Plymouth this weekend but I reckon the boys will have more than enough to beat them. I am not going with my £50 punt as I am not as confident simply because of geography! £15 returns £48.

Wolves to beat Spurs: Bit of a random one this, but I reckon Wolves could heap more misery on Spurs this weekend. Aye, Spurs are class but they have looked pretty average recently. I reckon Wolves can take them. £10 returns £33.

FREE BET - Arsenal HT/FT: I am supremely confident in Arsenal at the moment after they won 11 straight games. I reckon they can have Liverpool at home. £10 returns £60.

Dan Parker - @DGP202

Sunderland to win: Nice and simple. We’re flying at the moment so no reason why we can’t keep it up on the south coast. £15 returns £28.

Sevenfold Acca: I won big last week so playing it a bit safer with my Acca this week. Going for Celtic, Bayern, Madrid, Chelsea, City, Linfield, and Cambridge Utd all to win. £5 returns £42.94.

Free Arsenal vs Liverpool bet: I’m going to use this bet to go for Salah to score anytime. He’s getting plenty of stick for not being as potent as he was last season but he’s still doing the business and I back him to continue scoring. £10 returns £21.

Chris - @chrissavedlatin

Swansea, West Ham, Watford and Rangers to win: A simple four-fold with a decent return. £10 returns £136.76.

Sunderland to win 4-0: We’ve won 1-0, then 2-0, then 3-0, so logically this week we’re gonna win 4-0, right? £5 returns £170.

FREE BET - Liverpool to win and BTTS: I’m backing Jurgen to come out on top in what will be a cracker. £10 returns £31.

Graham - @AsylumDoors

Sunderland/Plymouth over 1.5 goals: I can’t quite call this in all honesty, but I do think both teams will bag a goal. £15 returns £18.75.

Leicester, Everton, Charlton, Blackburn, West Brom and AFC Wimbledon to win: Sixfold with rather ridiculous returns. £10 returns £1147.20.

FREE BET - Liverpool to win and BTTS: I can see Klopp’s team winning this rather comfortably, but surely Arsenal will grab one goal. £10 returns £31.
