Midweek Coupon Busters - Game Week 14Wednesday, November 29 2017
Our chips had a good dousing of urine over the weekend, mainly due to Tottenham turning up five minutes late for the West Brom match. And Jordan Pickford turning up at Southampton without his hands.
So we owe the bookies a good hiding. You hold him, I’ll hit him with these midweek multiples…
- Arsenal to beat Huddersfield
- Chelsea to beat Swansea
- Man City to beat Southampton £1 Treble returns £1.75
- West Brom to beat Newcastle £1 Four-fold returns £4.25
The Treble looks nailed on – I take no credit for it, but it is what it is. But to make it pay I prefer adding an odds-against West Brom into the mix rather than Tottenham or Man United. Both odds-on and both away to tricky customers.
Win To Nil
- Man City to beat Southampton
- Chelsea to beat Swansea £1 Double returns £3.60
- West Brom to beat Newcastle £1 Treble returns £12.82
I’d be quite happy to settle for a City and Chelsea double, especially as the Baggies could have relieved themselves all over the Treble before they even take to the field. But if West Brom win, it is just as likely to be To Nil. So 12/1 (ish) is value.
Under 2.5 Goals
- West Brom v Newcastle
- Bournemouth v Burnley £1 Double returns £2.80
Gary Megson will trust WBA’s defenders more than their forwards to secure the points – and I’m not sure Newcastle have got a goal in them anyway. Burnley love a low scorer and have suffocated better teams this season.
I’ll be at it again on Thursday, with a preview of the weekend fixtures followed by more Coupon Busters on Friday. Then I’ll be gloving up and getting stuck into Saturday’s TV double bill of Chelsea v Newcastle and Arsenal v Man United.

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.
