Soccernet showdown

Updated: Feb. 24, 2012, 2:24 PM UK

Each week we'll be asking our writers to place a 5 wager on their tip from the weekend's fixtures. We will be running a handy league table to show who's doing well, or not so well, to help you decide if you wish to follow the advice or avoid it like the plague.


• John Brewin: Fresh from some success last week, John has gone wild once more with his selection that Cardiff City will beat Liverpool in the Carling Cup final at odds of 9.00 at Bet365.

• Jon Carter: JC, no longer a loser after Jon Walters' exploits, has gone for his favoured scorer bet with Papiss Cisse to score anytime against Wolves for Newcastle United at odds of 2.47 at Bet365. • Dale Johnson: Dale's weekend of fun in his pants didn't last long on the betting front. But he's back with a bet that Bolton will beat beleagured Chelsea at odds of 11.00 at Bet365.

• Dom Raynor: A failure to perm a selection means Dom is first of our punishment bettors. Cardiff 4-3 Liverpool. Odds of 501.00 at Bet365 means Dom's on. • Robin Hackett: Ironballs is back, back, back, with a humungous punt. Spurs to beat Arsenal at odds of 2.87 at Bet365. The big man is here!

• Mark Lomas: Loser Lomas is still in Ghana, teaching kids soccer. We'r stille very proud of him, though we hope he still hasn't passed on another passion in life: losing wagers. Bottom of the heap again and now a bet of doom too. His fate lies in the sweaty palms of Steve Kean and so a Bet365 bet of 3-1 Blackburn against Manchester City. We predict a loser. • James Dall: James is sick of Arsenal being predicted to lose, so he's turned the tables on his colleagues by suggesting that Norwich City will beat Manchester United at odds of 6.50 at Bet365. • Rob Brooks: In his 900th game for Manchester United, can Ryan Giggs score at Norwich? Rob says he will score the last goal of the match at odds of 13.00 at Bet365. Current standings:

1. Robin Hackett: 96.50
