Coupon Busters - Game Week 37Saturday, May 5 2018
Extinguish all cigarettes and turn off phones, it's Matt Nesbitt with this weekend's Coupon Busters...
Two more chances to put the bookies' Premier League pants down this season.
Get to it...
Banker of the Week
- Double Chance Newcastle or Draw v Watford at 4/7
- HT/FT Man City/ Man City v Huddersfield at 2/5
- Bournemouth v Swansea BTTS at 7/10
- Chelsea v Liverpool BTTS at 8/13
Bankers are thin on the ground this weekend, but here’s a four-fold that – all things being right and proper – deliver a saucy little 24/5 (that’s 5.8 in decimal and just short of 5/1 in plain talk).
Watford and Newcastle’s race in run, but the home team’s five blanks in seven convinces me they are worth opposing… Swansea will enter their (very nearly) last chance saloon all guns blazing and Liverpool don’t know any other way to play. But both have leaks so I’m happy to take goals at both ends when they visit Bournemouth and Chelsea… Before topping up with a record-chasing City mauling a finger-crossing Huddersfield from the off.
- Bet: Treble at 24/5 (5.8)
Value of the Week
Coupon’s full of matches that either don’t need to be won are always littered with draws and there are plenty of contenders this weekend.
I could see Stoke v Palace, Leicester v West Ham and Arsenal v Burnley all ending level but I’m going for:
- Bet: Draw Trixie – Bournemouth v Swansea, Watford v Newcastle United & Chelsea v Liverpool
Note: A Trixie is four bets (three doubles and a treble). So, for example, a £1 stake will cost £4 and pay a maximum return of £73.85 (around 18/1) if they all come in. Any two pays £11 (around 3/1).
I also think that Stoke have been a bit unlucky in recent matches and things could go there way on Saturday lunchtime. It’s now or never, after all. It won’t be a goal-fest so we’ll squeeze a little extra value from going under 3.5 goals.
- Bet: Stoke Win & Under 3.5 Goals at 5/2
Watch and earn with these three this weekend…
- Man United to win at 3/4
- Everton to win at 15/8
- Chelsea v Liverpool BTTS
- Bet: Treble at 15/2+

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.
