We upped the stakes in the Charity Bet Tipster Competition last week, and one man took full advantage…
Just as his position at the top of the Charity Bet table was coming under some threat Andy Brassell picked out his first winner since week five and re-established a considerable gap at the summit. In Bed With Maradona were the only others to pick out a winner and in doing so leapfrogged Iain Macintosh into 2nd place. Here’s how the table looks after 16 weeks of action…
1.Andy Brassell – £93.25
2.IBWM – £43.00
3.Iain Macintosh – £38.50
4.Jonathan Wilson – £17.25
5.Ben Lyttleton – £17.25

BL – Sunderland 1-1 Liverpool @ 11/2
It’s a tough round of matches to ‘do a Brassell’ and pick out a shock, so I’m going to have to start backing Correct Scores to haul myself up the table. Liverpool played well despite losing to Arsenal last week and while Sunderland have some momentum at home, even without the suspended Lee Cattermole and Stephane Sessegnon, I think they can frustrate the visitors in their quest for a top-four spot.
IM – Norwich to beat Wigan @ 4/5
Wigan were absolutely woeful against Swansea last weekend and I don’t envy them their trip to Norwich on Sunday. The Canaries aren’t exactly on song (pfffft!) themselves right now, but that’s the beauty of this bet. Three defeats in their last five games has driven their price up, so wade in and get them to beat Roberto Martinez’s sorry bunch at Carrow Road.
AB – Blackburn to beat Wolves @ 19/10
Wolves’ impressive draw at Newcastle on Terry Connor’s debut seems to have veiled an important fact – they’re a bit of a mess. While they could have conceded 10 at Fulham last week, Blackburn were showing they can grind out a result.
JW – Liverpool to beat Sunderland @ Evens
Travelling in Brazil at the moment and again no time to think, so lets go for the emotional hedge.
IBWM – Chelsea to win by two or more @ 23/20
AVB out, RDM in, JT happy, fans of abbreviation ecstatic. Here at IBWM Towers we’ve looked at what looks like a delicious set of Premier League fixtures and it’s Chelsea v Stoke that tickles our collective fancies, Stoke are on a good run but Chelsea are at another dawn of another new era of another direction etc etc so we backing them to thump Rory Delap’s bezzie mates by 2 or more goals.
