Another action packed weekend of sport meant more big money paid out in prizes here at i-pools, but were you one of our winners?

 

Premier League Coupon: With tonight’s game between Chelsea and West Brom to play, our £500 guaranteed £2 Coupon is still very much all to play for. Currently, LaPlonk and HanFDog are joint top but that could all change depending on the outcome of tonight’s match. Despite a draw scoring LaPlonk five points providing it ends all square, fourth place SPA will end up winning the pool, bagging 10 points with a stalemate their Banker. A Chelsea win will see HanFDog secure the point they need to take home the more than £200 first prize, while a surprise victory for bottom club West Brom will score 13th place Tristan Chaplin 18 points as Banker, more than enough to sneak in to take home the cash.

 

LaPlonk and HanFDog currently lead the way thanks to both Banking a Newcastle win against Man Utd, with a surprise Toon victory bagging each player 10 points, who both also correctly predicted wins for Man City, Swansea and Liverpool.

 

Five-A-Side: With the top 10 players in our 5-A-Side waiting on how their Chelsea players do later, it could yet all change in our £2 game. Kingg leads the way with 126 points, nine clear of dhammacott, with both users to score points depending on how their Chelsea players perform.

 

Kingg is hoping Hazard shines, with a goal or two set to be more than enough for them to scoop £50. Courtois is in goal for dhammacott and with points won for a clean sheet and each save made, is still in with an outside chance to claim first prize.

 

Kinng is top thanks to three big scoring players, including Newcastle defender Lascelles, who scored 20 points due to being a x2 multiplier with the Toon one of the longest odds over the weekend. The Newcastle skipper helped his side keep a clean sheet in that vital win against Man Utd. Salah bagged 19 points, after scoring and setting up one in Liverpool’s 2-0 win at Southampton, while Aguero’s four against Leicester scored Kinng a mammoth 84 points as Banker, as well as nine other users.

 

Match Pools: Our Match Pools started with the crucial North London Derby Saturday lunchtime, with Spurs earning a huge 1-0 win in the race for a top four finish. Kane put the home side ahead early in the second half, and it was only for a string of fine saves from Cech that Tottenham weren’t bigger winners, although Lacazette missed a great chance in the dying seconds. In our £2 pool, DirtyTackle picked up £37 for four correct predictions, including Banking a Spurs win, picking two or fewer goals to be scored and Kane to net at anytime.

 

Aguero continued his fine start to 2018, with his four goals against Leicester taking his tally for the year to 13 and we’re not even midway through February! Sterling put City ahead early before Vardy equalised with a fine solo goal. But the deadly Aguero punished an error strewn Leicester display to score four second half goals as City ran out 5-1 winners.

 

Ballj was victorious in our Match Pool, after correctly predicting a City win, Vardy to score at anytime, 10 or more corners to be taken and Maguire to pick up a card.

 

Newcastle claimed a priceless 1-0 win against Man Utd in one of the shock results of the season, to end a four month winless home run. Ritchie scored his first goal of the season while debutant keeper Martin Dubravka, denied United with a man of the match display. Billy50w and tristan chaplin finished joint top of our Match Pool after both scoring 200 points thanks to Banking a Newcastle win.

 

Six Nations Week 2 - England v Wales: England edged past Wales 12-6 in a tense game at Twickenham, to put themselves in a good position to make it three consecutive Six Nations titles. Jonny May’s two tries helped secure England the vital win but Wales will feel hard done by with Gareth Anscombe being denied a try after it seemed he had been the first player to get a hand on the ball.

 

In our Match Pool, Mr Incredible won just under £20 for finishing top after Banking a Wales win, who had a handicap of 10.5, and correctly predicting an England win by 1-10 points, while Clive Cooper was victorious in our Week 2 Predictor.

 

Australia v England T20: Australia saw off England for the second time in just under a week to qualify for the Tri-Series final, while England are still searching for their first win after back-to-back defeats.

 

England’s innings never got going with Jos Buttler top scoring with 46 off 49 balls, and Kane Richardson took 3-33 to limited the visitors to just 137. Apart from losing David Warner early, Australia never looked in any trouble, with Chris Lynn smashing 31 off 19 and Glenn Maxwell adding a brisk 39, as the Aussies won by seven wickets with more than five overs left.

 

The Professor picked up £37.75 in our Pick 5, edging DirtyTackle by just eight points. The winning team was made up of Aaron Finch, Maxwell as Banker, David Willey, Andrew Tye and Chris Jordan.

 

What’s coming up this week at i-pools: The Champions League returns with an array of last 16 pools for you to enjoy, including Match Pools for all four matches, as well as guaranteed prizes in our Fantasy 5-A-Side, Coupon and knockout stages Predictor.
