Roker Riches: Sunderland are favourites, but MK Dons are in decent form... upset on the cards?

The bookies have Sunderland as favourites in today’s game, but MK Dons are in just as good form as we are and are capable of an upset. What do you think will happen?

Danny Roberts

The State of Play

Just the one winner last week - Matty Crichton had Sunderland to win both halves, lifting himself off the bottom of the table and putting Rory Fallow into last place.

We have a new leader again - Gav goes back to the top, but only just, after Graham Falk lost slightly more than he did last weekend. It’s close between the two, but can someone nab themselves a big win with an acca this week to push themselves into the title race?

The Table - Week #22

Banker’s Bonus...

If Jordan Willis nabs a goal or assist, the banker will double the profits of each pundit this week should they win any of their respective bets. Big gamble from the big man!

This week’s picks!

Gav is going with...

Sunderland to win 2-0: I’m feeling good about this one. £5 returns £45.

Fourfold: Leicester, Swansea, Wycombe & Swindon to win. £10 returns £164.50.

FREE BET: Both teams to score in the Southampton v Wolves, Brighton v Villa & Arsenal v Sheffield United games. Finger’s crossed... £10 returns £61.40.

Paul Fletcher is going with...

MK Dons 2 - 2 Sunderland: A performance like last weekend’s will be tough to follow. Can we deliver more of the same or will there be a dip in form? MK Dons have won their last four home games in all competitions, beating some strong teams in the process. While three points would be great, a point to maintain our unbeaten run wouldn’t be the end of the world. Hopefully the lads will make my prediction look silly by being 3-0 up after 20 minutes. £5 returns £75.

BTTS Fourfold: Crewe vs Cheltenham, Solihull Moors vs Borehamwood, Darlington vs Alfreton and Dulwich vs Chippenham. £7.50 returns £71.19.

Banker’s Bonus - draw treble: Arsenal vs Sheffield United, Southampton vs Wolves, West Ham vs Everton all to finish level. £10 returns £428.40.

Graham Falk is going with...

Sunderland to win and 2.5 goals: Can see the Lads trouncing MK. Cant wait to be wrong. £10 returns £32.

Fourfold: Liverpool, Forest, Rangers and Hearts to bring in some winnings. £10 returns £28.

Free EPL bet: Well, how about a cheeky little double on these two. Norwich and Man. City to win. £10 returns £22.75.

Matty Crichton is going with...

FREE PL BET: Watford to beat Spurs BTTS and Bournemouth to beat Norwich BTTS. £10 returns £302.50.

Sunderland to win both halves: The lads been more consistent since the start of 2020, with MK Dons possessing little quality this should be a routine victory for Parky on current form. £10 returns £60.

EFL Treble: Swansea, Portsmouth and Colchester are all hot favourites this weekend. £10 returns £45.81.

Rory Fallow is going with...

Sunderland to win and Charlie Wyke to score: We’re in cracking form and I fancy big Chaz to get on the score sheet two weeks running. £10 returns £40.

Premier League double: Bournemouth are awful at the moment so I’ll take Norwich to beat them at Carrow Road. Watford, who beat the Cherries last week, are look improved right now so I’ll sweeten my odds by backing them to beat Spurs. £5 returns £35.75.

FREE PL BET: I’m going to use this free hit to go for something with big odds. I’ll have Manchester United to upset Liverpool, with both teams scoring. £10 returns £150.

Danny Roberts is going with...

Sunderland to win: I’m actually feeling fairly optimistic about this week (which is never a good thing), so i’ll go for the lads to pick up an away win. £5 returns £10.

Championship Treble: Bristol City, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday all to win. £10 returns £61.87.

FREE EPL BET: I’m going to stick to a treble with my free bet, picking Brighton, Manchester City and Liverpool to all pick up three points. £10 returns £25.
