Roker Riches: Sunderland are favourites with the bookies to beat league leaders Wycombe today

Despite Sunderland being in ninth place and Wycombe being top of the table in League One, the bookies have us as clear favourites going into today’s game.

Danny Roberts

The State of Play

Despite winning one of his bets, Danny Roberts still made a loss this week. The only other winner was Paul Fletcher, who saw his non-league treble come in to net a small profit.

We have a new leader, though - Graham goes back to the top after Gav lost more money than he did. Still, after 21 weeks we’re all in profit. Not bad!

The Table - Week #21

Banker’s Bonus...

If Chris Maguire scores for Sunderland against Wycombe, the Banker will give all of our pundits a free tenner bet to use on the following weekend’s Premier League games.

This week’s picks!

Gav is going with...

Sunderland to win & under 2.5 goals: I fancy us to sneak a win today, but it’ll be tight. Wycombe have had our number a few times in recent years and I expect them to go ultra-defensive and waste loads of time. £5 returns £25.

Fourfold: Dundee United, Scunthorpe, Brentford and Leicester all to win. £10 returns £132.50.

Paul Fletcher is going with...

An OWN GOAL to be scored in the Sunderland game: I have absolutely no idea how the game will go so I’m not even going to try to predict results or scorelines. I’d very happily take a scrappy 1-0 win with the ball trickling over the line from a 95th minute deflection off a Wycombe backside. £5 returns £55.

Fourfold: York, Wealdstone, Edinburgh City and Glenavon to all win their home games this afternoon. £17.56 returns £109.02.

Graham Falk is going with...

Sunderland and Wycombe BTTS: I can’t split the sides today, but I expect a low scoring game and probably a 1-1 draw. Either way, I can’t see either side keeping a clean sheet. £10 returns £18.33.

Threefold: Leicester, Coventry and South Shields to win isn’t bad odds, and they’re all at home to teams they should beat. £10 returns £38.89.

Matty Crichton is going with...

Sunderland to win both halves: Parky has managed to guide the lads on an unbeaten run, combine that with Wycombe’s dreadful form and I believe the lads will deliver 3 points: £10 returns £60.

English Treble: since I am on a losing run I am going back to the method that made my money! Wolves, Leeds and Portsmouth to win. £20 returns £68.09.

Rory Fallow is going with...

Lynden Gooch to score any time: The boy Gooch has been fantastic lately and with that level of form, he should be finding the net against Wycombe. £10 returns £43.33.

Watford to beat Bournemouth BTTS: It’s a big game at the bottom and I’ll take a punt on Watford to come away with all three points, as Pearson looks to continue their improved results. Let’s just hope for some goals too! £10 returns £50.
