When only two players register a profit and that only adds up to £14, you know you have problems.
Walshie actually won both of his bets last week but they were obvious (Sunderland losing and Bayern Munich scoring lots of goals) and he didn’t lay down much money. Still, it’s better than the rest of us did.
Will we do better this week? Well that depends on how many of us back a positive result for Sunderland. Let’s take a look!
The Banker’s Bonus...

Walshie - @Walshie409
Preston to beat Sunderland: Lol @ this embarrassment of a football club. £5 returns £10.50.
Bundesliga treble: Hoffenheim, Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt all to win. £2 returns £31.72.
Gav - @Gav1879
Kazenga LuaLua to score anytime: It’s about time that we saw something from LuaLua and now that he’s back fit, I fancy him to nab a goal. Don’t ask me why. £5 returns £22.50.
Fourfold: Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Accrington and Norwich all to win. £10 returns £116.08.
Rory - @RoryFallow
Halftime/Fulltime - Preston/Draw: A late rally, a good result in isolation but not good enough to keep us up. Seems to have happened a few times lately when we haven’t just rolled over. £5 returns £60.
Wigan to win BTTS: I don’t care if Mark Hughes is going to galvanise Southampton with his instance on handshakes. If they’re good enough to beat Manchester City, they’re good enough to beat Southampton. £5 returns £37.50.
Danny - @DJRoberts22
Sunderland v Preston - The Lads to win: Rinse and repeat my previous blurbs on hoping we finally pick up a win again. £3 returns £10.80.
Wolves, Charlton and Lincoln to win: I’ll go with the home favourites again. Also, my hometown team, Lincoln face fierce rivals Grimsby tomorrow afternoon and I’m banking on the Imps to pick up the three points. £10 returns £46.42.
Bromley - @connorbromley
Just one team to score: Errr, why not? I haven’t predicted a correct Sunderland result since about November. £10 returns £18.
Bournemouth, Stoke, Liverpool, Spurs, Man Utd and Juventus all to win: Seems probable to me. Why not? Gonna wack 50 big ones on it - and if I win I could be back in the hunt! £50 returns £678.03.
Graham - @AsylumDoors
Halftime/Fulltime - Draw/Preston: I think we’ll manage to keep it steady first half before utterly crumbling when one of their centre halves notches early in the second half. £3 returns £14.25.
Leverkusen, Frankfurt, Liverpool, Man. United, Utrecht, Alkmaar, Celta Vigo, Nurnberg, Hearts, Milan & Juventus - 11 team accumulator: I’m really studied the form guide. Who’s shit away from home, who’s solid at home at what’s the most likely outcome based on it. It’s a big one, but I have confidence as I actually concentrated. £3 returns £657.04.
Dan Parker - @DGP202
Barkhuizen to score first goal: Still think we’ll lose. Can’t make myself bet on it though so opposition to score first again it is. £2 returns £15.
