Coupon Busters - Game Week 19

Thursday, December 21 2017


Silly season starts here. Christmas punting is a bit like disappearing into the stationary cupboard with Sophie from accounts at the office party. Seems like a good idea at the time, but you can easily end up with only mild embarrassment to show for your spent wad. 

Injuries – genuine and otherwise, funny kick off times, Christmas parties… all these can put a kink in form lines and chuck spanners in the works. 

So to avoid getting too much Tippex down our trousers, we’ll sidestep Sophie and simply photocopy our arse a few times. .

Have it…


  1. Arsenal v Liverpool
  2. Everton v Chelsea
  3. Brighton v Watford            £2 Trixie returns £40 (any 2 pays at least £5.70)


  1. Stoke v West Brom
  2. Burnley v Tottenham
  3. Southampton v Huddersfield        £2 Trixie returns £40 (any 2 pays at least £5.50)

Looks like a lot of draws around to me. We won’t land all of them so we’ll play smart and have a Trixie disco across six matches. 


Both Teams to Score

  1. Arsenal v Liverpool
  2. Brighton v Watford
  3. Leicester v Man United            £1 Treble returns £5
  4. Everton v Chelsea
  5. Stoke v West Brom                  £0.5 Five-fold returns £11

Both teams to score in Arsenal v Liverpool look the bet of the weekend and I quite like the Treble. The other two are well-backed by stats, but I’m losing confidence in all four of the protagonists so stake accordingly.        


Win & Both Teams to Score

  1. Liverpool to beat Arsenal 
  2. Man United to beat Leicester        £0.5 Double returns £9

A bit of a value punt, but well worthy of a silly fiver. Should add a bit of spice to watching the matches too. 

I’ll have more to say about Arsenal v Liverpool and Burnley v Tottenham later.

Later skaters,

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.
