A proper tricky little number this week, but then again it is silly season. At this point we have a fizzy mix of some clubs fighting for the title or Champs League spots, sides battling against the drop, and others with nothing at all to play for. Choppy waters, that’s for sure.
All this was, of course, led by Chelsea’s ridiculously unexpected home loss to bottom of the table Sunderland. None of us gave Sunderland a chance at Stamford Bridge, and the majority of punters backed their home win bets with the full 10 points. Needless to say the losses were big: 10.76 on average. Then there was Newcastle losing at home to Swansea which didn’t help, nor did Palace’s win at West Ham, although they are one of the Premier League sides in form at the moment.
Like last week, our Punter of the Week this week took the win by a huge margin. Paveyjojo scored 76, while Chriscol was second way back with 40 points. Unlike last week, however, it was a 10 point score bet that did the business – Everton’s 2-0 to be precise. Other thank this, Paveyjojo had 9 on a Spurs win, and a few single point result bets, but that was it. It was enough, however, and earns £10 to spend at Amazon and a rise of a couple of places up the League. Well done!
Elsewhere, it was the semi-final of the tPs Cup this weekend. SteveH gave Agentv a complete tonking by 37 points to -32, while Jono edged past Gripweed by 43 points to 25. SteveH will take on Jono in the two-legged final over the last two weekends of the season.
And the current game of Sudden Death is coming to a head, with just three punters – Adge, Kev and PCPN still in the mix.
