TV Guide - Game Week 24: Swansea v LiverpoolMonday, January 22 2018
Tottenham ruined our chances of landing a 10/1 Acca tonight. Or perhaps Southampton ruined. Either way, it’s ruined.
We still would’ve needed Liverpool to win at Swansea, but for a 10/1 payout I’d take that all day.
Things started to go wrong before 1pm Saturday lunchtime. Already 2-0 up, Chelsea were well on the way to taking down two Coupon Busters, before most games had even kicked off.
Arsenal followed suit then Watford put the boot in when I was already on my hands and knees spitting out teeth.
A second goal from Tottenham would’ve helped me to my feet and tucked 10/3 and 13/2 winners in my top pocket. Ah well. Them’s the beats.
And there’s always tonight…
Swansea v Liverpool. 8pm on Sky Sports.
We can agree that Liverpool will win this one, right? The tipping point here is – will they concede. And I say no.
Yes, I know they have only registered two clean sheets on the road… yes, I know there have been goals at both ends in five of their last six… and yes, I know that Wilfried Bony looks like he has shed some of his Kardashian butt and the Swans have scored two matches in a row (no mean feat for that lot).
But I figure Jurgen the German will be thinking: The front four will win us the match, let’s see if the other six can get through it without fucking up.
So let’s play it like this…
- Liverpool (-1) Match Handicap at 17/20
- Liverpool to Win, Both Teams to Score: NO, Under 10.5 Corners & Under 35.5 Booking Points at 4/1 (via Coral’s #YourCall)
Note: Going over 10.5 corners and over 35.5 booking points (i.e. four cards) pushes the odds up to 11/1. Everything points under, but I wouldn’t dissuade you places a ‘saver’ bet to cover your stakes. After all, I’ve slashed everything else into the crowd 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.
