Roker Riches: No Sunderland game - which pundit will be Christmas #1 this year?

Sunderland don’t play this weekend (again) so can’t be accused of ruining your betting slip - who else do you fancy this weekend? Join the Lads as they compete to earn Christmas #1 in our Roker Riches table!

Danny Roberts

The State of Play

Nobody but Graham won this week - he’s extended his lead at the top.

Good news, however, is that the Banker’s Bonus came in for once and everyone has a free fiver bet on the Bundesliga... small positives.

Can anyone win big and take top spot off Graham this Christmas?

The Table - Week #19

Banker’s Bonus...

Merry Christmas! Enjoy that free fiver, ya filthy animals.

This week’s bonus: If the total goals scored in the Premier League this weekend totals over 25, the banker will give all our pundits a secret Christmas gift each...

This week’s picks!

Gav is going with...

Treble: No Sunderland game to bet on again this weekend so I’m going for a treble of teams - Wolves, Swansea and Coventry - all to win. £10 returns £86.

Double: Not really sure what to do here so I’ve bottled it... Over 3.5 goals in Bayern v Wolfsburg & Leipzig v Augsburg. £5 FREE BET returns £18.

Danny Roberts is going with...

Treble: It’s slim pickings this week. Not much has stood out, but I’ll go for Millwall, Exeter and Bradford all to win home games. £10 returns £64.16.

Bundesliga Free Bet: I haven’t really paid much attention to the Bundesliga this season, so I’m going to have to play this safe and bet on the favourites. Leipzig, Bayern and Frankfurt. £5 returns £20.62.

Rory Fallow is going with...

Leicester to beat Manchester City: 7/1 for Brendy’s Boys to take all three points back to the East Midlands is too good to resist! £10 returns £80.

Bundesliga Four Fold: Playing it safe with my free bet. Schalke, RB Leipzig, Dortmund & Monchengladbach all to win. £5 FREE BET returns £43.75.

Paul Fletcher is going with...

National League Treble: Away wins are tough to pick, but there are three that have caught my eye this weekend, all with very tempting odds – so I’m going for Woking to win at Ebbsfleet, Kings Lynn to win at Gloucester and Havant & Waterlooville to win at Braintree. £7.50 returns £63.15.

UD Los Garres to beat Mar Menor FC: With Sunderland not playing this weekend, I’m turning my attention to my adopted team who play in the fourth tier of the Spanish pyramid. At the moment, we are a respectable 8th in the table but it’s been a season of contrasting fortunes. Based on home results, we’d be rock bottom of the league and based on away results, we’d be top of the league. Anyway, this Saturday we’re up against the team who currently sit at the top of the table but I’m backing the lads to end the home curse and finish off 2019 with a win. £5 returns £15.

BANKERS BONUS - Goals galore in the Bundesliga: I’m hoping to see goalkeepers and defenders in the German top flight giving out early Christmas presents left, right and centre this weekend. It’s a long shot, but I’m placing my bonus fiver on both teams to score in all eight of the Bundesliga fixtures this weekend (six on Saturday, two on Sunday). £5 returns £217.95.

Graham Falk is going with...

League One treble: I’m not sure I’m going with the right choices here, but whatever. Coventry, Doncaster and Gillingham to win. £5 returns £41.93.

Jermain Defoe to score anytime: With Alfredo injured for Rangers, big JD will come up trumps to down Jack Ross’ Hibees. £10 returns £17.27

BANKER’S BONUS: Das right, we have a Bundesliga free fiver bet! I’m a bit of a Bundesliga expert if I do say so myself, so here’s a chance for egg on my face. Bayern, Leipzig, Bremen, M’Gladbach and Frankfurt to win. £5 returns £102.09.
