FA Cup, Big Bash, Fantasy Racing - Were You A Big Money Winner This Weekend?
Monday,February 18,2019

The FA Cup 5th round took centre stage this weekend, with plenty of intriguing ties in the battle to make the quarter-finals, which continues as Chelsea and Man Utd do battle tonight at Stamford Bridge. We paid out an abundance of prizes across our cup pools, with more to be won at the conclusion of tonight’s huge tie, while even more was up for grabs in our racing, cricket and golf games over the past couple of days.


Did you turn your sporting predictions into some big cash? Here’s who won what, and is set to win big, in our pools this past weekend, starting with the FA Cup.


FA Cup Coupon: Our £2 Coupon, which beat the £100 guarantee, could go a number of ways depending on the outcome at Stamford Bridge. Either way, the player or players who take home first prize will complete a clean sweep of eight correct predictions - but given the relatively short odds of a full complement, there’s no Progressive Jackpot to be won!


Marsden21, hanners898 and gailshopes are currently joint top all with seven correct results, which will be eight if Chelsea overcome Man Utd tonight but it will be a four way tie with Kingg Banking a home win, which would score four points and join the others on 16 points. A draw after 120 minutes will see Kingg win the pool outright, with his second entry Banking the stalemate, while a Utd win at x3, would mean Kingg - with his third entry - and Delwyn will score three points to see them share the top prize. All the aforementioned players have got every result spot on, with Wolves’ narrow 1-0 win at Bristol City, Millwall’s victory at AFC Wimbledon by the same result and Swansea’s 4-1 thrashing of Brentford, each scoring four points as Banker.


In our £10 and £25 pools, providing Chelsea progress to the quarter-finals, Hanners898 would scoop more than £200 for finishing top of both pools.


FA Cup Fantasy: Platters30 is set to win more than £30 in our £2 5-A-Side, unless Eden Hazard plays a blinder for Chelsea, to overturn a 28 point gap for Paullovatt down in fifth. Platters’ team consists of John Ruddy in goal, who scored 17 points for helping Wolves keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win at Bristol City. Patrick Van Aanholt added 10 as Crystal Palace kept out Doncaster in their 2-0 victory, while Bersant Celina got on the scoresheet as Swansea eased past Brentford 4-1. Gabriel Jesus as Banker was their biggest scorer, bagging 22 points.


5th round Match pool round-up: We ran Match Pools for the standout cup ties over the weekend, starting with Watford’s 1-0 victory at QPR on Friday night. The guaranteed £2 table was won by Jamietis, who backed a Watford win and Banked Etienne Capoue to score at anytime, with his strike proving to be the winner. Hanners scooped £92 in the £25 pool.


Goals from Anthony Knockaert and Jurgen Locadia helped Brighton squeeze past Derby 2-1, with veteran Ashley Cole scoring late on for the visitors. Willhhall was victorious in our £2 pool with Knockaert to score as Banker coming through, while Banking a Brighton win saw The Professor take home nearly £150 by cleaning up in the £10 and £25 tables.


League Two minnows Newport County ran a strong Man City close until late goals from Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez added gloss to make it 4-1. Newport were so close to going ahead but Ederson somehow kept out Tyreeq Bakinson’s header before Leroy Sane and Foden seemingly put the game out of the hosts’ reach. But Padraig Amond’s late goal gave the League Two outfit hope before those late goals dashed that soon after. Chelman won £22 in our £2 pool, correctly predicting a City win, with a 4-1 scoreline and Banking Amond to score at anytime. MbAndrews was the big winner in the higher stake tables, scooping a total of more than £200, with a City win and Banking Foden to score helping them to do so.


PaulChaffey picked up £30 in our Bristol City v Wolves Match Pool, Banking an away win and predicting a 1-0 score, which was correct thanks to a first-half winner by Ivan Cavalerio, which also helped Paullovatt scoop more than £150 in the £10 and £25 pools.


Racing TV Fantasy: It was a bumper day of racing on Saturday, with 10 races - including nine from Ascot - split into two racing pools, with £200 guaranteed in each. Jazzle picked up more than £150 of the prize fund in the earlier pool, which paid out a total of 16 prizes. Jazzle’s best entry had three winners, with Shades of Midnight scoring 400 points as Banker for winning the 1:55 at Haydock.


In the second TV pool of Saturday, gailshopes and Kingg both won £73 for finishing joint top, which saw 23 prizes paid out! Both the first place users picked two winners from the five race pool card.


Best of the rest: Melbourne Renegades completed a fine comeback win against City rivals Melbourne Stars to get their hands on their first Big Bash title. After posting just 145-5 in their 20 overs, Renegades were struggling when the Stars were cruising at 93-0 after 13 overs, but two wickets each from Chris Tremain, Daniel Christian and Cameron Boyce inflicted a sensational collapse to leave the stars 112-7, before managing to post 132, 13 runs short. Chelman finished top of our £2 Fantasy, beating 18 other players to claim £33, with man-of-the-match Christian scoring 132 points.


Lastly, DirtyTackle won £51 in our 62 runner £2 Genesis Open Fantasy Fourballs, with tournament winner J.B Holmes scoring 450 of their total points tally of 526.


There’s plenty more to play for this week, with our array of Champions League pools, including a Match Pool for Liverpool v Bayern Munich, while the ODI series between West Indies and England gets underway on Wednesday.
