Weekend Review: Did Your Sports Predictions Win You Some Big Cash?
Monday,February 25,2019

The League Cup final, Six Nations, ODI cricket & a Premier League grudge match - there was an array of big sporting action to keep you interested this past weekend and we had you covered at i-pools. We paid out plenty of hefty prizes if your sporting predictions were on point - 46 players got their hands on the £1,500 won in our matchday 27 Premier League pools. Were you one of our big winners?


Premier League Coupon: 14 players picked up a share of the £500 guaranteed in our £2 Coupon, with bookiebasher finishing top of the 207 runner pool to scoop £200. They correctly predicted six of the eight match results, with Burnley’s surprise 2-1 victory against Spurs scoring 10 points as Banker, which ended up making the big difference to the outcome. Crystal Palace’s 4-1 win at Leicester, which ultimately cost Foxes boss Claude Puel his job, added three points, while basher predicted wins for Watford, West Ham, Newcastle and Arsenal which all came through.


Fantasy 5-A-Side: Jazzle won £50 in our £2 Fantasy 5-A-Side, with a narrow one point win over second place gilesmacey. Tom Heaton, who made some crucial saves in Burnley’s impressive victory against Spurs, scored 12 points for Jazzle’s team, with Virgil van Dijk and Chicharito also adding 12 a piece, while it was Wilfried Zaha who was their big scorer, bagging 44 as Banker for his brace against Leicester.


Match Pool round-up: As usual we ran a Match Pool for every televised Premier League match, starting with West Ham’s 3-1 win against Fulham on Friday night. A contentious equaliser from Chicharito, which appeared to strike his hand, cancelled out Ryan Babel’s opener, before Issa Diop and Michail Antonio sealed the win. LuckoftheHat scooped £30 in our £2 Match Pool, correctly predicting a home win and for either team to win from behind.


Tottenham’s title chances took a huge blow as Burnley boosted their survival hopes with a brilliant 2-1 victory at Turf Moor. Chris Wood put the home side ahead before Harry Kane pounced on a quickly taken Danny Rose throw-in to score on his comeback but it wasn’t enough as Ashley Barnes won it for Burnley on 83 minutes. Mickspix was victorious in our £2 Match Pool after Banking a home win and picking Chris Wood to score at anytime, while Wood also helped CliveCooper pick up more than £130 in our £10 and £25 pools.


Palace steered clear of the relegation zone with a 4-1 victory at Leicester to end the reign of Claude Puel, with Michy Batshuayi, Luka Milivojevic and a Zaha double helping to seal the win. MattHeasman won £30 in our £2 Match Pool, scoring 120 points for Banking a Palace win and scoring points for Milivojevic’s successful spot kick.


The big game of the Premier League ended up being a damp squib as Man Utd and Liverpool played out a goalless draw at Old Trafford. A poor game wasn‘t helped by Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Roberto Firmino all going off through injury in the first half. Lingard and Chris Smalling came closest in a game of few chances, but the draw was enough to send Liverpool back top.


Banking the draw helped MbAndrews win our £2 Match Pool, and Paullovatt to scoop

£69 in the £25 table.


You haven’t got long to wait in the attempt to be the big winner in our matchday 29 pools, with a full midweek programme getting underway tomorrow!


League Cup Final Match Pool: Man City retained the League Cup with a 4-3 penalty shootout victory against Chelsea at Wembley. City failed to break down a stubborn Chelsea side, who failed to have a shot on target, while Pep’s men came closest when Sergio Aguero was flagged marginally offside after netting. But Kepa Arrizabalaga’s defiance of Maurizio Sarri, refusing to come off at the end of extra-time after appearing to cramp up, took all the headlines and he failed to make up for it when Aguero’s weak penalty somehow found a way past him


Jorginho and David Luiz missed from the spot for Chelsea, before Raheem Sterling scored the winning penalty to secure City’s fourth title in the past six seasons. In our  £2 Match Pool, daveb87 won £55 for Banking the draw, correctly predicting 0-0 after 120 minutes among other successful answers, while Paullovatt won more than £130 by clearing house in the £10 and £25 tables.


West Indies v England 2nd ODI Fantasy: West Indies levelled the five match ODI series, with a thrilling 26 run victory when it looked like England would cruise into a 2-0 lead. Chris Gayle scored another half-century, while Shimron Hetmyer smashed an unbeaten 83 ball 104 to lead the Windies to 289-6. Eoin Morgan (70) and Ben Stokes (79) looked to have put England on course after a few early wickets, with the visitors well placed at 228-4 with 10 overs left and just 62 to win. But a horrible collapse of 6-35, with Sheldon Cottrell taking 5-46 sealed a first ODI win for the Windies against England in five years. Chesterman69 was the big winner in our Fantasy pools, taking home £115 in the £2 and £10 tables, for his team of Shai Hope, Hetmyer as Captain, Stokes, Tom Curran and Cottrell.


Six Nations pools: Wales put themselves in prime position to win the Six Nations, beating England 21-13 to secure a record 12th consecutive Test win. Tom Curry’s first international try put England 10-3 ahead but late tries from Cory Hill and Josh Adams sealed a fine win for the Welsh, with replacement Dan Biggar making the difference. Paulchaffey picked up £75 for winning the £10 and £2 Match Pools, backing a Wales win, the last 20 minutes to see the most points scored and a 7 to 12 point winning margin, while our week three Predictor was won by Liebe.
