Take on the Tipster: Can our challenger beat The Professor?


Take on the Tipster is back and we’re kicking off 2015 by bringing in a brand new face to tackle our next batch of wannabe free bet winners. 

Let’s face it. So far this season our News Team have put in some pretty inconsistent performances against a host of hungry opponents.

Some of you were swatted away. Others edged us out. Meanwhile, one pretty smug tipster walked away with a £100 free bet and promptly turned it into £1,305.82 courtesy of this worldie acca.

So, we thought it was about time we called in the cavalry. And in our case, that means The Professor.

Here’s a man who no doubt sported a beard long before they became fashionable. He knows all the stats and facts and reckons he can work the whole thing out.

And we’re putting him to the test with @tomwba1982 his first opponent with a £25 free bet the prize on offer.

As always, the format is simple. Our challenger has given us his predictions for this week’s Premier League matches and we’ve laid out our own verdict.

One point will be awarded for a correct result with three points for guessing the correct score.

Here are Tom’s Premier League predictions:

Aston Villa 0-1 Liverpool
Burnley 2-1 Crystal Palace
Leicester 1-1 Stoke
QPR 1-2 Man United
Swansea 1-2 Chelsea
Tottenham 3-1 Sunderland
Newcastle 1-1 Southampton
West Ham 2-0 Hull
Man City 3-1 Arsenal
Everton 1-1 West Brom

And here’s what The Professor has gone for:

Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool
Burnley 2-2 Crystal Palace
Leicester 1-1 Stoke
QPR 1-2 Man United
Swansea 1-3 Chelsea
Tottenham 2-0 Sunderland
Newcastle 0-0 Southampton
West Ham 2-1 Hull
Man City 2-2 Arsenal
Everton 1-0 West Brom
