Roker Riches: Sunderland major favourites with the bookies today - can Rochdale cause an upset?

Sunderland are clear favourites today with the bookies, despite the fact that Rochdale are unbeaten in their last four games. Can the home side cause a major upset and harm our chances of automatic promotion?

Danny Roberts

Wembley may have ended in heartbreak but one of our pundits still came away a winner!

Danny’s punt of Sunderland to be winning at half time but drawing at full time has catapulted him into the lead. This was his free bet as per The Banker’s Bonus so well done to Danny for taking full advantage.

There wasn’t much luck for our gamblers aside from that though, as most were optimistically betting on us bringing home the Checkatrade Trophy. A mention for Graham though who carried on his steady climb up the table with a modest £13 profit last weekend.

It’s back to betting on League One action now though. The escapism of Wembley is over and it’s onward to Rochdale, let’s bring home three points and some cash for our players!

The Table...

The Banker’s Bonus...

If Sunderland beat Rochdale with Charlie Wyke on the scoresheet, The Banker will give each player a free £20 double on next weekend’s Championship fixtures.

Gav - @Gav1879

Sunderland to win & over 1.5 goals: The Lads need to keep the promotion train moving forward and I don’t see it coming off the rails at Rochdale. Haway! £20 returns £48.

Fivefold: Norwich, Swansea, Doncaster, Lincoln & Rangers. I need a big win to reclaim my throne... £10 returns £330.

Rory - @RoryFallow

Sunderland to win both halves: Hopefully a nice straight forward win, just like at Accrington. £10 returns £55.

Championship Treble: Sheffield United, Leeds United & Swansea City to win. £5 returns £54.60.

Danny - @DJRoberts22

Sunderland to win and keep a clean sheet: We should win and I think it’ll be comfortable like it was at Accrington. £10 returns £31.00.

Championship Treble: Norwich, Bristol City and Hull to win or draw - it’s a difficult week to pick an acca! £10 returns £33.09.

Dan Parker - @DGP202

Sunderland to win & over 1.5 goals: easiest money I’ll make this week. Having said that, I’ve lost every bet in 2019 so don’t trust me! £40 returns £96.

Fivefold Acca: Going for wins for Lyon, Hertha Berlin, Juve, Madrid, and Lazio this week. £5 returns £47.14.

Chris - @ChrisSavedLatin

Sunderland to win: A lads win is a must, I don’t care how pretty it is, just win the game of footy chaps. £50 returns £91.00

Championship treble: I like the look of Rory’s treble so I’m gonna be brave and stick a massive £50 on it... £50 returns £546.00

Graham - @GF_RokerReport

Sunderland to win and over 1.5 goals: I quite fancy us to put away Rochdale by 2 or 3 goals, 0-2. 1-3 or something would do fine. £10 returns £21.50.

Norwich, Hertha and Wolfsburg three-fold: I must admit to not being overly confident on my Bundesliga bets this weekend, but there’s some pretty tough, hard to call matches including Bayern-Dortmund. Hopefully I got some luck. £15 returns £56.40.
