Roker Riches: Sunderland are slight favourites with the bookies to win away at Oxford today

Sunderland are slight favourites to win today at Oxford with the bookies. Check out our picks for this weekend’s round of games in Roker Riches!

Danny Roberts

The State of Play

Danny Roberts has catapulted himself right back in the mix with a big profit this week. Both of his bets came in, netting him a profit of £99.11 and putting him just behind Graham in second place. Matty also bagged himself a little bit of profit with a canny acca win - he’s now fourth. Everyone else, however, lost a lot of money. Me no likey.

The Table - Week #26

Banker’s Bonus...

If Josh Scowen actually gets on the pitch against Oxford, the Banker will give each pundit a fiver free bet to use on whatever they like. He’s not confident that Parkinson will use him!

This week’s picks!

Gav is going with...

Sunderland to win 1-0: If we’re going to win this game, we’ll do it efficiently. Oxford are a good team and will be well up for this, but I have faith in our defence. £5 returns £35.

Treble: Portsmouth, Exeter and Airdronians all to win. £10 returns 68.25.

Paul Fletcher is going with...

Sunderland to win and BTTS: Oxford don’t draw many blanks at home so I think we’ll struggle to make it 3 clean sheets in a row. I do fancy us to score at least a couple and come away with three vital points. £5 returns £30.

Sevenfold: 1 pick from each league from Premier down to National North and South. Liverpool, Fulham, Rotherham, Swindon, Barrow, Halifax and Tonbridge. £5 returns £136.98.

Graham Falk is going with...

Sunderland/Oxford under 2.5 goals: I’m struggling to call it and I’m fancying a draw in truth, but our defence is tight, so it won’t be a high scoring one. £10 returns £16.

Fourfold: Liverpool (obviously), Middlesbrough, Celtic and Portsmouth to win. £10 returns £46.08.

Rory Fallow is going with...

Sunderland to win to nil: Given the form of both teams, I think it’s fair to predict that we’ll pick up all three points. We’re looking stronger at the back every week too, so I’ll go for a win & a clean sheet. £10 returns £43.33.

Bristol City to beat Leeds: They might be at home but with Leeds on their annual slide, 15/2 is a great price for Bristol City to take all three points. £5 returns £42.50.

Danny Roberts is going with...

Sunderland to win: Go on then. Oxford are in bad form currently and we’re looking very strong so we’re going into this one confident. £5 returns £.12.50.

Four fold: Portsmouth, Rotherham, Sheffield Wednesday and Fulham to all to pick up home wins this weekend. £10 returns £63.37.
