Coupon Busters - GW 31 + FA Cup QtrsSaturday, March 17 2018
Short and sharp this week. I’ve got to see a man about a horse this afternoon.
Banker of the Week
Only Liverpool at home to Watford qualifies as a Nailed-on pick in the PL this weekend. From the FA Cup quarter-finals we get another at Old Trafford, where United have to beat Brighton to save face – and their season. So there’s a Double.
And I’m also prepared to add Tottenham to the party. The FA Cup is a bigger deal following their Champions League exit and the semi and the final will be played at home.
Bet: Treble – Liverpool, Tottenham and Man United to Win at 7/5.
Value of the Week
Despite not qualifying as a Nailed-on pick, I’m happy to go with Bournemouth to beat dead-team-walking West Brom. Ten of their last 11 have seen goals at both ends too (the anomaly being a clean sheet at Chelsea) so let’s double-up, shall we?
And then sprinkle a Man United Win To Nil on the top. No more wriggle room for Jose.
Bet: Double - Bournemouth Win & BTTS & Man United Win to Nil at 6/1
- Romelu Lukaku has emerged as one of United’s stand-up (if not stand out) performers and loves playing the likes of Brighton. Last Scorer 11/4.
- Heung-Min Son is the go to guy with Kane missing. Seven in his last four for Spurs. First Scorer 7/2.
I'll be back on Monday to pick the bones out.

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.
