With Monday Night Football still to play, all our big money Premier League games are nicely poised, ahead of the final match of week 10. But there was still plenty of real money won this weekend, in our Match Pools for each televised game, and in our array of cricket, golf, NFL, boxing and F1 pools.

 

First up is a look at how our Premier League games stand ahead of tonight’s Burnley v Newcastle clash:

 

Hoofaround69 leads the way in our £2 Coupon and is on course for £205 of the £500 guaranteed but could well lose that lead after tonight. They lead joint second place Towif and DirtyTackle by just a point, and can get to 20 points if it ends all square at Turf Moor. But BookieBasher in eighth will also get to 20 points with the draw their Banker, which would be worth six points and would mean the top prize would be split between the two players.

 

Hoofaround is top thanks to correctly predicting the results of eight matches, including wins for Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea. Stoke as Banker came through with six points after an impressive 1-0 win at Watford. Crystal Palace’s draw at home to West Ham is currently the only incorrect prediction, with Hoofaround going for a Palace win, although Wilfried Zaha did save a point with a last gasp equaliser.

 

With the top users in our £2 Fantasy Five-A-Side having seen all five players of their teams already in action, it’s safe to say Tristan Chaplin will be taking home the top prize of £50, and also has an entry in second so that’s £75 in total he will be taking home!

 

Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl, scored 36 points as Banker despite conceding three at Anfield. This is because he was a x2 multiplier due to Huddersfield being long odds, so scored quadruple points as banker, and not to mention scoring 20 points for saving a Mohamed Salah penalty. Tristan picked Antonio Valencia in defence who scored nine points, Eden Hazard in midfield who scored 12 points for his winner at Bournemouth, Leroy Sane bagged 17 points for his goal at West Brom, while Alexandre Lacazette could only manage a solitary point.

 

In our Matchday 10 Beat The Streak for £1million, five players fell at the first hurdle in our £5 game after picking Watford to see off Stoke. But a Darren Fletcher goal saw the Potters come away with a vital 1-0 win to dash the hopes of those five at the earliest opportunity. 15 of you are through to next week after Arsenal came from behind to beat Swansea 2-1, while 16 made it thanks to Man City’s 3-2 victory at West Brom.

 

Don’t forget there’s a brand new game to play this weekend, so start your journey to £1million here.

 

Man Utd’s 1-0 win against Spurs kicked off our weekend Match Pools, with Anthony Martial’s 81st minute winner securing a big three points for Jose Mourinho’s men in the race for the title. Greatxola67 picked up £50 of the guaranteed £100, for selecting a Man Utd win, two or fewer goals to be scored and Banking a goal after 80 minutes to be scored.

 

A Hazard winner earned Chelsea an important 1-0 win at Bournemouth, and it was Snootyfox who picked up £21 in our Match Pool, thanks to picking a Chelsea win, a Hazard goal and Banking none of the above in our Pick an Event question.

 

Everton’s shocking season continued with a 2-0 loss to Leicester, in what was Claude Puel’s first game as Foxes boss. Goals from Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray made it back-to-back league wins for the 2015/16 champions. Chelman was victorious in our Match Pool, after choosing Leicester to win and Banking Gray to score at anytime.

 

Anthony Joshua defended his WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles with a 10th-round stoppage against a sturdy Carlos Takam, on Saturday night. Joshua was overwhelming favourite to see off Takam easily but the challenger proved tough to beat, despite damaging his eye early on. Mfcgadge picked up more than £20 in our Fight Pool, after correctly predicting a Joshua win by KO, TKO or DQ, between rounds 9-12 and that Takam would be knocked down first.

 

There were two cricket pools to play on Sunday, starting with the deciding India v New Zealand third ODI at Kanpur. Rohit Sharma’s 147 and yet another hundred from skipper Virat Kohli led India to 337-6, and New Zealand were well placed for a shock series win, at 247-3 with 10 overs to play. But some excellent death bowling from Jasprit Bumrah, who ended up with figures of 3-47, denied New Zealand as India stole the win, and the series, by six runs. Paullovat was the winner of our Pick 5, for his team of Sharma, Kohli as Banker, Pandya, Bumrah and Boult.

 

David Miller smashed the fastest T20 international hundred of all time, as South Africa cruised to a 83 run win in the second T20 against Bangladesh, to take the series 2-0. Miller’s hundred came in just 35 balls and included five consecutive sixes in Mohammed Saifuddin’s final over. The home side ended on 224-4 and were well too strong for the visitors, bowling them out for 141. Chesterman69 took home the top prize for their team of Amla as Banker, de Villiers, Duminy, Hendricks and Hasan in our £2 Pick 5.

 

Despite finishing ninth in the Mexican GP, Lewis Hamilton secured his fourth F1 title, as nearest rival Sebastian Vettel, could only manage a fourth place finish. Willinhall was the winner for their team of Vettel, race winner Verstappen, Ocon, Alonso, Magnusssen and Wehrlein.

 

It’s a full programme of Champions League football this midweek, with plenty to be won across our five Match Pools, daily Coupons, FantasyFive-A-Side games and more, so turn your knowledge into cold, hard cash!
