That Was The Weekend That Was

That Was The Weekend That Was
Monday,November 5,2018
It’s still all to play for in our big money Premier League Matchday 11 pools, which get paid out at the end of tonight’s Monday Night football. But there was still plenty won in our Premier League Match Pools, Saturday’s TV Racing Racing Fantasy, NFL and T20 games. Here’s a look at who won or is set to win big over the past weekend:
Premier League Coupon: Our £2 Coupon is going all the way to the wire, with four players currently tied at the top of the leaderboard. Hippodrome, Hoofaround69, ToonJim and Nomadic are tied on 18 points, with the winner of the pool depending on the outcome tonight’s clash, with strugglers Huddersfield hosting Fulham. If the hosts get their first win of the season, Hippodrome, ToonJim and Nomadic will all score two points to secure a three way tie, to split the majority of the £500 guaranteed. But a draw will see Hoofaround claim first prize outright, while an away win will result in a tie between Adamh84 and MFC Gadge, who are both currently joint ninth, with a Fulham victory worth three points. 
Three of the four current leaders picked up six points for Banking a Newcastle win against Watford, with a 1-0 victory sealing a first win of the season for Rafa Benitez’ men. Hoofaround also scored six points for their Banker coming through, which was on a draw between Arsenal and Liverpool. Other correct predictions for each player included wins for West Ham and Man City.
Fantasy 5-A-Side: Kennyluck127 is set for £54 in our £2 Fantasy game, but still has an outside chance of being overtaken at the top of the pool. Tristan chaplin in second place and currently eight points off the top, could overtake Kenny if Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl plays a blinder against Fulham. With a point scored for each save made and a further 10 for a clean sheet, Tristan is still in with a chance of scooping first prize. Both players scored 66 points for making Raheem Sterling their Captain, who didn’t disappoint with two goals and two assists in Man City’s 6-1 thrashing of Southampton. 
Beat the Streak for £1million: Two players still remain very much on course to scoop the £1million Jackpot in our Matchday 1 game, picking their 11th consecutive winner with just nine more needed to become a millionaire. Marley and The Professor both moved through after backing West Ham, who saw off Burnley 4-2 in a nervy affair. It looked like the dream might be over for the pair when Chris Wood equalised for Burnley with around 10 minutes to play, but late goals from Felipe Anderson and Javier Hernandez sealed their safe passage through. The other two players that remain, jazzle and jamietis, will be hoping Huddersfield do something they haven’t done this season and win a Premier League match, otherwise it will be curtains for them in the pool. A West Ham win makes it 10 wins in a row for ringsender in our Matchday 2 pool. 
With a full range of teams to choose from, unsurprisingly Man City were the most popular pick in our week 11 game, with 17 moving through after their 6-1 win against Southampton, while 14 are waiting to see if Huddersfield can get past Fulham. Play a brand new Beat the Streak by Saturday, here.
Match Pool Round-Up: Man Utd came from behind to beat Bournemouth, thanks to an injury time winner from substitute Marcus Rashford. Callum Wilson gave the Cherries an early lead, and the hosts should have been out of sight before Anthony Martial equalised, although United were much improved in the second half. Tristan chaplin secured £30 in our Match Pool, for predicting a United win, Martial to score and for either team to come from behind to win. 
The big game of the weekend saw Arsenal and Liverpool play out a 1-1 draw, in an entertaing encounter at the Emirates. Both sides had plenty of chances, but it was James Milner who put the visitors ahead just after the hour mark, before Alexandre Lacazette levelled things up with less than 10 minutes to play. In the end they had to make do with a point in a match that could have gone either way. Nickw17 won nearly £40 for backing a draw, two or fewer goals to be scored and Milner to net at anytime in the £2 game, while Paulovatt scooped more than £130 in our £10 and £25 pools.
An entertaining game between Wolves and Spurs on Saturday evening saw Ballj take home more than £120 for winning both the £2 and £25 Match Pools. That was thanks to picking Spurs to win and Banking Erik Lamela to score at anytime. Tottenham raced into a 3-0 lead thanks to goals from Lamela, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane, but penalties from Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez deep into the second half made it a tense ending for the visitors.
A brace from Alvaro Morata and a goal from Pedro, helped Chelsea overcome Crystal Palace 3-1, who equalised briefly through Andros Townsend. But Eden Hazard made an instant impact, winning a free-kick before assisting for Morata within seconds of coming on. Cordy was victorious in our £2 Match Pool, after predicting a home win, four or more goals to be scored and Banking Townsend to score at anytime.
