Tenner On: Our writers compete for the most weekend profit

Armed with nothing but a £10 stake and their own judgement, the Insider editorial team fight to be crowned the week's top tipster.


Fulham, Wolves, Crawley and Bournemouth to win: £10 at 14/1*

After two consecutive weeks of profit, I’m going even bigger this time around in a bid to extend my lead at the top.

Fulham, Wolves and Crawley are all in excellent form and, for reasons explained in my weekly domestic five-fold, I’m confident they’ll do the business.

With four victories from a seven-match unbeaten run in the league, Bournemouth should take advantage of Huddersfield’s dreadful run and bring us another winner.


Wolves, Blackburn, Bayern Munich and Bordeaux to win: £5 at 16/5*

Wolves beat Sheffield United with their eyes closed last week, and will find life even easier against QPR. Blackburn should see off Oldham comfortably, too.

In Europe, Bayern Munich will rarely be such a good price to win at home, while Bordeaux are resurgent under Gus Poyet.


Derby and Crawley to win, Plymouth to win or draw – £5 at 9/1*

Norwich are on a decent little run, but haven’t won three in a row all season. Away to Derby – who are unbeaten in 11 and have conceded just three goals in that time – I fancy them to get beat.

Plymouth have only lost to Wigan in their last 11 matches. They beat Blackburn, the division’s second-best team, last time out so can easily take something off Shrewsbury, who haven’t put teams to the sword of late.

Grimsby are winless in 11, losing eight, while Crawley have won six of their last seven and five of their last six at home.

Exeter or Wycombe to win and BTTS, Coventry or Accrington to win and BTTS – £5 at 13/2*

Bit of experiment, this one.

Wycombe have won five games in a row that have seen a combined total of 24 goals, while Accrington have won six of their last seven with both teams scoring in each of their last four.

Both travel to promotion-chasing teams with good home records in Exeter and Coventry this weekend, and, given all four sides have drawn just one match between them since the start of December, any team to win feels like the safest double-chance option.


Tottenham v Arsenal BTTS, West Ham v Watford BTTS, Manchester City to win and BTTS, Bayern to win: £10 at 7/1*

No win for me in more than two months, but I’m blindly optimistic that this is going to be the week.

The north London derby is nailed-on for BTTS, and I fancy goals when West Ham host Watford as well.

City should bounce back from their draw at Burnley by recording their 18th consecutive home win with victory over Leicester, although the Foxes should also get on the scoresheet,given that City have kept just one clean sheet in five at the Etihad.

Finally, I’ve tacked on Bayern – currently on a run of 11 straight wins – to close out the four-fold and get me back into the black.


Swansea and Bournemouth to win: £10 at 5/1*

My strategy of attempting to pick the winner of mid-table clashes has failed miserably. But rather than switch up, I’m redoubling my efforts.

Swansea have won their last four matches at the Liberty Stadium in all competitions, and I fancy them to edge out Burnley, who have drawn four and lost three of their last seven away matches.

Bournemouth have won four out of six in the Premier League, including the last two, and should overcome a Huddersfield side that have lost five successive top-flight matches.
