Roker Riches: Sunderland are favourites to win with the bookies, but Gillingham are no mugs

Though the bookies have Sunderland as the clear favourites to win today’s game at the Stadium of Light, Gillingham are no mugs and have aspirations to finish in the play-off places themselves. Here are our picks for this weekend’s round of games!

Danny Roberts

The State of Play

Matty Crichton was last week’s big winner, netting a profit of £41. Danny Roberts also made small gains, whilst everyone else lost money. Gav’s big outlay on his treble failed to pay off and, as such, he’s this week’s biggest loser.

The Table - Week #29

Banker’s Bonus...

If Declan John makes the bench this weekend, the banker will refund all losing bets.

This week’s picks!

Gav is going with...

Sunderland & over 2.5 goals: I have no idea what will happen. £5 returns £16.25.

Fourfold: Sheff Utd, Brentford, Oxford and Plymouth all to win. £10 returns £91.36.

Paul Fletcher is going with...

Sunderland to win 3-2: As much as I’d love a nice straightforward 2-0 win, I can see this game being a bit frantic and wide open. Also I’m miles behind the rest of the group so I’m forced to go for longer odds. £5 returns £145.

National League Sixfold: Barrow, Hartlepool, Kettering, Altrincham, Bath City and Wealdstone all to win. £5 returns £187.93.

Graham Falk is going with...

Sunderland to win: I think we’ll be okay this week and win comfortably. We owe Gillingham one. £10 returns £18.50.

Fourfold: Fleetwood, Celtic, Bayern and Bremen to win. £5 returns £37.50.

Matty Crichton is going with...

Kyle Lafferty to score & Sunderland to win 1-0. My gut tells me that Phil Parkinson will finally show the courage to drop Charlie Wyke and give the Northern Ireland international his chance to start at the Stadium of Light. £10 returns £190.

League One Quadruple: Lets see how much I know about the league we are competing in... Rotherham to beat Rochdale (A), Fleetwood to beat Blackpool (H), Bristol Rovers to beat Southend (A) and Wimbledon to beat Bolton (H). £10 returns £130.82.

Rory Fallow is going with...

Sunderland 1-1 Gillingham: I just have a horrible feeling about this. £5 returns £32.50.

Manchester United to win: 4/1 is really good considering United are at home. I’ll have a bit of that. £10 returns £50.

Danny Roberts is going with...

Sunderland to win: The Lads should get back to winning ways today. £5 returns £9.16.

Fivefold: Leeds, Brentford, Southampton, Sheffield United and Wimbledon all to pick up three points. £10 returns £126.46.
