That Was The Weekend That Was

That Was The Weekend That Was
Monday,December 4,2017

With plenty to play for across our array of Fantasy, Last Longest and Prediction games, here’s who won what in another fine weekend of sporting drama:


Premier League Coupon: Gameboy666 was the big winner in our £2 Coupon, scooping £200 of the guaranteed £500 prize fund. They saw off The Camel by just two points, with the Banker making all the difference. Gameboy scored six points for Banking a Man Utd win against Arsenal, while The Camel could only manage four points, with their Banker of Leicester narrowly overcoming Burnley.


Gameboy correctly predicted the results of eight matches, with draws between Bournemouth and Southampton, Spurs at Watford and WBA at home to Palace, each scoring three points. A win for new boss Big Sam scored two points as Everton beat Huddersfield 2-0, while Leicester also bagged two points, and routine wins for Chelsea and Man City scored a point a piece.


Fantasy 5-A-Side: The £50 first prize went to p33eto, after a narrow four point win. Their team included Heurelho Gomes in goal, who scored two points in Watford’s home draw with Spurs. Kyle Walker was their defender, who bagged three points as Man City left it late to beat West Ham. Eden Hazard scored 21 points thanks to his brace in Chelsea’s 3-1 victory against Newcastle, while Mohamed Salah chipped in with six points as Liverpool thrashed Brighton 5-1. Despite that hammering, Glenn Murray scored 48 points after scoring Brighton’s only goal. This was due to scoring double for being a x2 multiplier with the Seagulls one of the longest odds to win, and scored p33eto double points on top of that due to being their Banker.


Match Pools: Arsenal at home to Man Utd Saturday evening was the pick of the Matchday 15 games, and it didn’t disappoint with arguably the game of the season so far. United came away with a precious 3-1 win, with Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard striking early. Arsenal were then the better team but were denied after a string of world class saves from David de Gea. They finally scored through Alexandre Lacazette but Lingard got his second of the game just after the hour mark, with Arsenal pushing for the equaliser. Paul Pogba saw red shortly after but United clung on for a big three points.


Hippodrome won £31.94 for finishing top of our £2 Match Pool, scoring heavily for Banking Man Utd to win, while scoring points for picking four or more goals to be scored, 12 or more corners to be taken and Ander Herrera to be booked at anytime.


Man City left it late yet again, this time to beat West Ham, with David Silva’s late goal the fourth time in a row City have scored a winner in the final 10 minutes. It was also their 13th Premier League win on the bounce, the joint most in a season. They had to do it the hard way as Angelo Ogbonna headed West Ham ahead just before the break, but Nicolas Otamendi equalised before late drama from Silva.


MrElvis scooped just under £40 in our Match Pool after picking City to win, Banking Silva to score and correctly predicting that there would be a goal scored after 80 minutes.


Ashes Second Test: Australia are set to go 2-0 up in the Ashes, despite an England fight back on the third day of the second Test. A Shaun Marsh ton in the first innings helped the Aussies post an above par 442-8 declared, before Nathan Lyon took four wickets as England could only muster 227. That was only possible due to late order runs from Chris Woakes and Craig Overton, with the debutant ending unbeaten on 41. But two wickets a piece for Woakes and Jimmy Anderson leaves Australia tottering at 53-4, although they are safe in the knowledge that their lead is already 268.


Ballj won £30 in our third day Predictor, with five correct predictions, including James Vince to be the first wicket to fall, England not being able to pass 300 in their first innings, Banking 10 or more wickets to fall and Joe Root to score 0-10 runs on Day 3.


SteakNChips is well poised to win more than £60 in our second Test Fantasy Pick 5. Their team consists of Root, Marsh, Starc as Banker, Bairstow and today’s standout performer, Lyon. With Lyon and Starc key for the Aussies when they bowl again, expect plenty more points to fall SteakNChips’ way.


Best of the rest: La Plonk and HanFDog finished joint top of our Hero World Challenge Fantasy Fourball, to take home £67 each. They both had the same team of tournament winner Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose, Patrick Reed and Charley Hoffman. Hoofaround69 and Stedee both won £24 for finishing joint top of our Weekend Quickie, while Ballj picked up £15 for winning the NFL Sunday Handicap Coupon.
