Roker Riches: Plucky punter has placed £150,000 on Sunderland to get promoted on Sunday - eek!

Someone is confident - BETDAQ have revealed that one of their plucky punters has placed £150,000 on Sunderland to get promoted at Wembley on Sunday!

Danny Roberts

So here we are, it’s the penultimate week of this season’s Roker Riches!

We’ve got a Play Off Final to bet on for the lads as well as the corresponding games in the Championship & League two. There wasn’t much to shout about in our last round of bets, as only Dan and Gav made a profit, predicting a draw in our semi final second leg against Porsmouth.

This means Danny still holds a narrow lead over Gav but that could easily be flipped around this week. At the bottom of the table, Rory has had a nightmare as he has gone into debt after a shocking second half of the season. Let’s see if he can pull himself out of the red in our play off special...

Oh, and check this out for a bet. Someone is confident...


The Table...


The Banker’s Bonus...

If Sunderland defeat Charlton via a penalty shoot out, The Banker will give each gambler a free £10 any time goalscorer bet on the Champions League final.


Gav - @Gav1879

Sunderland to win and BTTS: I really, really don’t want to bet on us. £10 returns £50.

Derby to win and both teams to score: I’m pinching this one from Rory because I genuinely fancy Frank Lampard’s side to win at Wembley. £10 returns £60.

Rory - @RoryFallow

Sunderland to win and both teams to score: Need to end this in a positive balance so I’m lumping on this. I can see goals and hopefully the lads will get it done in 90 minutes. £25 returns £125.

Derby to win and both teams to score: The same bet for the Championship play off final. Mainly opting for Derby because they have better odds and I’m threadbare. £10 returns £60.

Danny - @DJRoberts22

Tranmere to be promoted: The only team in Merseyside to win anything this season? £10 returns £17.27.

Aston Villa to win & only Villa to score: I expect a tight affair in the Championship play off final and despite my dislike for the aptly named Villains, I think they’ll complete the job at Wembley this year and earn promotion to the Premier League with a narrow victory. £10 returns £37.50.

Dan Parker - @DGP202

Sunderland to win and both teams to score: God I really hope we win. Don’t care what the score is. Just get it done lads. £50 returns £250.

King Maguire to score: Because it’s a massive game and he’s the king. Really need him to be on his shithousing best. £50 returns £225.

Chris - @ChrisSavedLatin

Sunderland to win: Copying Graham. £10 returns £26.

Tranmere, Aston Villa and Bayern to win: Copying Graham. Heh. £20 returns £179.40.

Graham - @GF_RokerReport

Sunderland to win: this time, we’ll do it. £10 returns £26.

Tranmere, Aston Villa and Bayern to win: Along with ourselves, Tranmere and Villa will win their play offs, with Bayern nipping Leipzig to win the Bundesliga double. £20 returns £179.40.
