The State of Play
Ouch - after making steady gains in recent weeks, Graham Falk lost £40 last week. Gav and Danny both lost twenty quid each, and Paul Fletcher lost £12.50.
Rory Fallow won his first bet in ages and put a buffer between himself and bottom-placed Matty Crichton, who won both of his bets yet still wasn’t able to make any real progress.
The Table - Week #13
Sunderland might have beat Southend but it wasn’t a sparkling performance, so the Banker was able to breathe a sigh of relief once more. Will he be caught off guard this week?
This week’s bonus: If Luke O’Nien can continue his fine run of scoring goals at home in this weekend’s game, the banker will award all our players a free £10 bet.
This week’s picks!
Gav is going with...
Sunderland to win and over 1.5 goals in the game: I fancy the lads to win this weekend, and by a few goals. The Gillingham fan we interviewed on the site this week reckons we’ll win 3-0, and whilst I’ve got nee idea how bad Gillingham actually are that gives me some confidence that they’re not perhaps going to take this one seriously. £5 returns £10.
Fourfold: Solihull, Forest Green, Burton and Rotherham all to win their cup ties... watch, it’ll be just my luck that they are on the receiving end of a few upsets! £10 returns £83.
Rory Fallow is going with...
Luke O’Nien to score any time: It worked for me last week so I’m going for it again! I know it’s a risk given that Parkinson may rotate the side but given O’Nien’s fitness levels, I’m confident he’ll still be involved.
Sheffield United to win away at Tottenham: This might look silly but The Blades are in better form and are above Spurs in the League. 5/1 is excellent value for Chris Wilder’s men to take all three points. £10 returns £60.
Paul Fletcher is going with...
Sunderland to win 3-0: Let’s stroll into the second round and get back to keeping clean sheets at home. £5 returns £60.
Six-fold: Guiseley, Wealdstone, Cliftonville Coleraine, Cove Rangers & Edinburgh City. £7.50 returns £76.91.
Graham Falk is going with...
Sunderland and Gillingham BTTS: This has replay on a Tuesday night in mid-November written all over it. 1-1 or 2-2 though? I can’t decide how crap we’ll decide to be on Saturday. £5 returns £9.55.
FA Cup Sixfold: Blackpool, Port Vale, Salford, Walsall, Forest Green and Exeter all to win. Few shocks in there and great odds: £5 returns £405.01.
Matty Crichton is going with...
Sunderland to win both halves: We have been brilliant at home in the league so I expect the lads to take that into our FA Cup campaign. £10 returns £25.
British fourfold: Liverpool to beat Man City, Man Utd to beat Brighton, Leeds to beat Blackburn and Rangers to beat Livingston. £10 returns £78.29.
