Coupon Busters - Game Week 30Friday, March 9 2018
Typical isn’t it? Couple of good results and now he thinks he can land 275/1 and 429/1 shots in the same week… Eyes roll.
So…er… are you interested or not…?
Banker of the Week
Only two Match Results stand out in a coupon littered with six-pointers from every section of the Premier League.
Chelsea aren’t in the best fettle, but will be much happier facing a patched-up Palace than their last three assignments (Barcelona, Man United & Man City). And need a win tucked in their belt ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League 2nd leg.
I fancy Man City will want to get domestic business taped off asap, to support their European effort. Plus, Stoke have more realistic fish to fry in matches to come.
The Double looks solid, if unspectacular at 8/13. But I’m not done there…
You can make a good case for Both Teams to Score at seven of the ten Premier League grounds this weekend. But the two I’m taking to trial are both on Sunday.
It has been ten matches since Arsenal kept a clean sheet and all their eggs are now in the Europa League basket. Watford meanwhile are on the up after three wins in four and Deeney and Co will be cracking their knuckles at the prospect of doing the double over Arsenal for the first time in… I dunno… ever?
After Wednesday’s schooling, Tottenham’s credentials face a Bourne-mouth ultimatum – and they have a habit of starting slow. Their hosts won’t. And the numbers are good here too. Nine of Bournemouth’s last ten and eight of Spurs’ last 11 on the road have delivered at both ends.
- Bet: Chelsea & Man City Win Double at 8/13
- Bet: BTTS Double – Arsenal v Watford & Bournemouth v Tottenham at 19/10
Value of the Week
It looks a good week for the Pools (remember them?). There are at least eight very competitive contests, so likely to be a few Draws around.
Man United and Liverpool always draw (four on the spin)… Burnley have drawn four of their last seven away and West Ham can’t afford anything less… Brighton have drawn three of their last four away and Everton will take any point in a storm right now… And I can’t split Huddersfield and Swansea.
On top of the numbers, none of the teams mentioned would turn their nose up at a point this weekend. But to give ourselves a safety blanket, let’s place a dandy doodle Yankee on all four to Draw…
- Bet: Yankee – Man United v Liverpool, Everton v Brighton, Huddersfield v Swansea & West Ham v Burnley to all Draw.
Note: A Yankee is 11 bets (six doubles, four trebles and a four-fold). So a £1 stake will cost £11 and pay a maximum return of £275.83 (if all four matches are drawn). Any double will return £9.30.
If you’re feeling fruity, you might want to turn it up one louder…
I quite like the look of 1-1 in all of the above and - just for fun, no mortgage money - will be having a little nibble on a Correct Score Trixie.
- Bet: Man United v Liverpool, Everton v Brighton & West Ham v Burnley to all Draw 1-1.
Note: A Trixie is four bets (three doubles and a treble). So a £1 stake will cost £3 and pay a maximum return of £429 if they all come in. Any two pays £45.50.
Watch and earn with these three this weekend…
- Man United v Liverpool Under 2.5 Goals
- Chelsea to beat Palace
- Arsenal v Watford BTTS
- Bet: Treble at 7/2
