Roker Riches: Bristol Rovers have 2nd worst home form in League One - can Sunderland capitalise?

Sunderland are 11/8 to win away at a Bristol Rovers side with the second worst home form in League One this season. After a good win at home on Tuesday, are we a safe bet?

Sunderland drew again but we finally won some money!

I don’t care if it was only two of us who made and a profit and I don’t give a damn that it’s only a combined profit of £31.20, it’s still a profit, alright?

Kudos to Gav who went for something different by backing the first goal in our game against Accrington to be between 30-45 minutes. I bet he was delighted when Billy Kee put us 1-0 down. Elsewhere, Rory was right to put his faith in Norwich & West Brom at the top end of the Championship.

You will notice the table is looking slightly smaller this week as well, given Connor has decided he’s better than all of us and is now on Stewart Donald’s payroll. As he was well into the red though, it’s probably for the best.

Anyway, the lads won on Tuesday night so everything is great again and it’s surely going to rain money as we travel to Bristol Rovers.

The Table...

The Banker’s Bonus...

Will Grigg is off the mark but Aiden McGeady is banging in goals for fun at the minute. Since The Banker is feeling kind, he’ll give each player a free £10 bet on next weekend’s North London derby if either player finds the net against Bristol Rovers.

Sunderland to be winning by half time: Bristol Rovers are in great form but I just have a good feeling going into Saturday’s game, and think we’ll win comfortably. £20 returns £60.

English Treble: My Brexit acca for this weekend features wins for Norwich, the Mags and Bury. Pretty decent odds I reckon! £10 returns £70.

Sunderland & over 3.5 goals: Right, time to dish out a hammering. I don’t care if Bristol Rovers have turned their fortunes around - their home form is dire. We also scored four on Tuesday night so we’re back to being mint again. £10 returns £75.

Manchester United to beat Liverpool BTTS: A tough game to call but given Manchester Untied are at home, I’ll opt for Ole’s boys. 4/1 is pretty decent odds too. £5 returns £25.

Danny - @DJRoberts22

Bristol Rovers v Sunderland - Over 2.5 goals: Might regret this, as it’s bound to be another 1-1 draw. But i feel this could be either a 2-1 win or loss. £5 returns £10.50.

Triple - West Ham, Leeds and Lincoln City all to win: Banking on these three to end my poor betting form. £10 returns £42.00.

Dan Parker - @DGP202

Sunderland & over 3.5 goals: One win and now I think we’re Barcelona. We’ve opened the floodgates and the goals will continue to flow in this one. £20 returns £150.

Five team Acca: Yeah, this is a weird collection of teams to bet on but my normal bankers aren’t coming in. Going for wins for Djurgardens, Torquay, Milan, Cologne, and Bayern. £5 returns £29.74.

Chris - @ChrisSavedLatin

Sunderland to win: A nice simple Sunlun win please! £50 returns £112.50.

Spurs, Wolves, Leeds and Millwall to win: Four-fold to bring me closer to £0. £30 returns £428.94.

Graham - @AsylumDoors

Sunderland to score first: Things are not going well when it comes to my SAFC bets. I barely ever win, so I’ll go safe and we’ll score first after our four goal half on Tuesday. £10 returns £18.50.

Bundesliga treble: The Germans have betrayed me in the past few weeks and my winning run has grounded to a horrible halt and I’m also nearly in the minus. You’ve got one last chance to redeem yourselves Deutschland. Bayern, BMG and Fortuna to bring home the dollar. £20 returns £80.16.
