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: Betting against Liverpool proved lucrative for John last week but he's getting behind them this time and predicting that Andy Carroll will come back to haunt former club Newcastle with the first goal at the Sports Direct Arena. Odds of 9.00 are available with Bet365.
He should have scored, but decided to have a lie down.
• Jon Carter: Another to register an important winning bet last week, JC is ready to take a bit more of a risk - he's going for Everton to (rather specifically) beat West Brom 2-1 as the odds of 8.50 from Bet365 sing out to him.
Close, but no banana.
• Dale Johnson: Enduring a slump comparable to Liverpool's of late, Dale is hoping to arrest his slide by backing Norwich to earn their fifth away win of the season against Fulham. It would also be the Cottagers' fifth home defeat this term, so appropriately he found odds of 5.00 with Bet365.
Nope, no cash here.
• Dom Raynor: Last season's default champ is still away sunning himself in Norwood so another punishment bet is coming his way. Blackburn's Mauro Formica to score a hat-trick against Manchester United looks a tasty offering at odds of 201.00 from Bet365.
Needless to say, Mauro Formica did not score a hat-trick, but Dom gets lucky - he didn't come off the bench, so his fiver is returned.
• Robin Hackett: Finally breaking away from the stranglehold that backing QPR to win seemed to have on him, Robin has turned his attentions further north this week and reckons West Brom's Baggies will be boinging at Goodison Park. An away win at Everton comes in at 4.50 with Bet365.
Captain Sensible looked too big and lost.
• Mark Lomas: Time is running out for 'Loser Lomas' to avoid a third straight season at the bottom of the Soccernet Showdown pile. He's putting his eggs in Nicklas Bendtner's basket this week and is backing the recently unmasked Sunderland striker to score anytime against Man City. Odds of 5.50 are available with Bet365.
Well, well, well. We might have to start coming up with a new nickname. £22.50 into the kitty and off the bottom.
• James Dall: James is enjoying Bavaria's finest beers this weekend on his stag do in Munich, but he's so desperate not to be staring into the bottom of a glass come May that he's managed to get his bet in on time. QPR to hold in-form Arsenal at home is his call, odds of 4.20 is the response from Bet365.
It was worse: they won. James loses his cash.
• Rob Brooks: With Brooksy enjoying some time off, we've had to try to put ourselves in his shoes this week. Cue inevitable Australia-related bet: Chris Herd to score first against Chelsea is available at 34.00 with Bet365.
No, no, no.
