Coupon Busters - Game Week 29Friday, March 2 2018
I’ll say Coupon and you say Buster.
C’mon party people. You can do better than that. I said, I’ll say Coupon and you say Buster.
There we go. Oo-eh, oo-eh!
Let’s get this site post started…
The two standouts are Tottenham and Liverpool to beat Huddersfield and Newcastle. All four teams arguably have bigger - or at least, different fish to fry.
Tottenham and Liverpool have Champions League business midweek. And Huddersfield and Newcastle will be targeting more realistic assignments to stack up enough points to stay in the division. So we can expect low-key, professional home wins.
This is reflected in the prices: 1/5 and 2/9 are of no interest. Likewise the 1/2 Double.
So I propose a sprinkling of Man City to beat Chelsea on the top. Pep has the scent of the title in his nostrils and Wednesday’s CL tie is a gimme, so the 4/6 is fair. And with two legs down by 7.30pm Saturday, it’ll mean we are sat on a 7/5 ticket on City to win at home on Sunday. A good place to be.
- Bet: Tottenham, Liverpool & Man City Treble at 7/5
Value of the Week
A 90th minute equaliser snatched 4/1 and 6/1 winning tickets out of our hand at Burnley last weekend. Largely thanks to referee Bobby Madley’s deft interception in midfield.
That woulda coulda shoulda been Burnley’s seventh 1-0 win of ten this season. I’m prepared to go in again at 6/1.
My Coupon Buster this week is Brighton v Arsenal. The ninth best home team v the ninth best away team. The Seagulls soaring, the Gunners misfiring. While it’s true that Arsenal have a record of pulling things out of the bag, the upcoming Milan trip is a big enough spanner in the works for me to have a punt on Brighton laying the boot in.
- Bet: Burnley to win 1-0 at 6/1
- Bet: Brighton Win & Under 3.5 Goals at 9/2
Watch and earn with these three this weekend...
Burnley to beat Everton
Liverpool to beat Newcastle
Brighton v Arsenal – Both Teams to Score
- Bet: Treble at 21/5
- Jamie Vardy is five from six and will enjoy the wide open space on Bournemouth’s beach. 3/1 First Goal.
- Mo Salah has seven in six and five of them have been Liverpool’s last goal. Another Last Goal here pays 5/2.
- Abdoulaye Doucoure has scored some big goals this season and might be due one in a pivotal match. 9/1 First Goal or 10/3 Anytime.
- Heung-Min Son is a likely starter v Huddersfield and has back in the goals after a nine-match drought. 7/2 First Goal.

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.
