Weekend Coupon Busters

Saturday, November 18 2017


Okay then, Badmen and Badwomen (and Badtransgenders – we’re a broad Badchurch here…). Here’s my take on the best value Doubles and Trebles to do some Coupon Busting this weekend.  

At BadMan we avoid big Accas – they are bookmakers’ bets. But they don’t like Trebles. And they can’t stand Doubles. So that’s where we’ll plan our attack.

Eyes down, look in…

Match Results

  1. Bournemouth to beat Huddersfield
  2. Man United to beat Newcastle
  3. Liverpool to beat Southampton
  4. Burnley to beat Swansea

The four travelling teams have mustered just 12 goals between them in 19 away days. And a third of those were against Palace. All four home teams are in winning form, with Liverpool, Burnley and Bournemouth on the up. United can’t afford another slip.

  • £1 four-fold returns £5.80
  • £1 Any three of the four returns £2.40


Win To Nil

  1. Burnley to beat Swansea
  2. Man United to beat Newcastle

Four of Burnley’s five and all seven of United’s wins have paid out To Nil. Gift horse. Mouth.

  • £1 returns £4.68


Both Teams to Score

  1. Arsenal v Tottenham
  2. Leicester v Man City
  3. Watford v West Ham

Fourteen of the last 18 North London derbies have seen goals at both ends. Watford and West Ham have respective five from six and five from seven form and we all know if Leicester score two, City’s ballers will get three.  

  • £1 returns £3.40


Over 2.5 Goals

  1. Watford v West Ham
  2. Leicester v Man City

Watford, West Ham and City are all over Over 2.5. Leicester haven’t got a choice.

  • £1 returns £1.80


Under 2.5 Goals

  1. Burnley v Swansea
  2. Man United v Newcastle
  3. Bournemouth v Huddersfield

The away teams rarely take goals on their travels. Bournemouth and Burnley don’t like spending them, so one will do. The only worry is if United are feeling frisky in the last ten minutes. But there’s Champions League business to attend to midweek, so I reckon Jose will be backing the bus into position at 1-0.

  • £1 returns £3.88

I've used a £1 example but I'm not telling you how to live, brother. Bet what you like. 

That's how BadMan is betting this weekend.

Matt's short, unremarkable football career was ended by his own bad driving. His long, distinguished career as a football tipster was ended by his own good advice. Because bookmakers don’t like a winner. First, they closed his accounts. Then his members’ accounts. Then his tipping service. And now they employ him as a consultant. Funny old game.
