Thirty-nine players each took a share of the £250,000 Soccer Saturday Super 6 offer at online betting site Sky Bet. The competition runs weekly and puts the powers of predictions to the test with punters trying to correctly select six scores from Saturday’s footballing action.

It doesn’t cost anything to enter so it was a nice payout for the 39 participants who managed to take a share of the prize.

Last season the competition paid out 1.2 million in total but Saturday marked the first weekend of the new season that the jackpot had been hit and the winners collected £6,250 each. There is £250,000 up for grabs every round if you can correctly predict the scores from six selected matches.

There is no Premier League or Championship matches around this weekend of course because of the international break, but the Skybet Soccer Saturday Super 6 will still be running, as Sky Bet League 1 takes centre stage and that is where the prediction matches will come from.

If no one is lucky enough to land the jackpot then the next highest player in the competition will pick up £5,000.

This weekend’s Super 6 matches are:

  • Bradford v Crewe
  • Colchester v Coventry
  • Gillingham v Bury
  • Peterborough v Fleetwood
  • Sheffield United v Southend
  • Swindon v Scunthorpe

The days what can 20p buy you? Well, for one lucky punter at online betting site Sky Bet it will be going a long way after a 10p each-way nine-fold acca was landed. The 20p outlay won the small-stake punter a massive £8,659.81 win.

The huge benefit of Sky Sports running their Best Odds Guaranteed concession was a big factor in bumping up the returns. That is because several of the punters’ selections in the bet went on the drift, but thanks to the guarantee the punter was able to take them at the bigger price.

The selections in the ninefold were all based on consecutive races running through Wednesday.

Sky Bet spokesman Michael Shinners said: “We thought we might be in for a tough afternoon with plenty of favourites going in around the country, but nobody saw this bet coming.

“To roll up such a decent win off such a small stake in less than an hour takes some doing!”

His selections were as follows:

10p Each Way 9-Fold (Total Stake – 20p)
15.10 Warwick – Net Work Rouge 3/1
15.15 Greyville – Wishful Heart 13/8
15.20 Chepstow – Sykes 9/4
15.30 Nottingham – Tinsill 9/2
15.35 Fairyhouse – Sizing Scorpion 9/2
15.40 Warwick – Aloomomo 2/5
15.50 Chepstow – Leith Hill Legasi 3/1
16.00 Nottingham – Top Diktat 9/2
16.05 Fairyhouse – Misdflight 2/1

While Jose Mourinho is a 9/4 second favourite option in the next Premier League manager to leave market, it’s worth considering the scenario if Chelsea do sack him. It is is heading towards mid-season and all the top managers around are pretty much tied up at the moment. So if Mourinho gets the push now then it’s likely that they will run with an interim boss until the end of the season.

It would make sense therefore that Guus Hiddink could be the one to step into the breach after becoming such a popular figure there in rescuing Chelsea’s 2008/09 season in winning the FA Cup and eleven of the thirteen league matches which he coached with the Blues.

But looking further ahead in the next Chelsea manager betting market, There hasn’t been much said about Carlo Ancelotti making a return, the former Chelsea boss was somewhat unceremoniously booted out of Stamford Bridge the season after winning the double with the club. He at least is a man out of work at the moment after having stepped down from his Real Madrid role in the summer.

But all the hype and rumours seems to point to Chelsea getting their hands on Pep Guardiola for the start of next season, which would throw fuel on the fire of Chelsea not actively looking for a direct replacement right now for Mourinho. It also hints that they may just let Mourinho run through to the end of the season.

Guardiola is a 6/1 favourite in the next Chelsea manager betting with Sky Bet, with Carlo Ancelotti at 12/1. Current Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has been trimmed a little bit into a price of 8/1 and makes for an interesting name in the hat, as he would team up with former striker Diego Costa and may be able to get the best out of the Spaniard.

Enjoy a great price boost from online betting site Sky Bet this weekend in their Soccer Saturday Enhanced Odds offer. This week they have put up a treble of Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City all to win on Saturday afternoon for a price of 4/1 which is a nice boost up from the industry standard of 3/1, so sign up with them to take advantage of the big enhanced odds offer.

One of the big games of the weekend will be Manchester United’s trip to Goodison Park to face Everton. The Toffees have picked up just one home win in their last six played on home turf and United will be hoping that the attack of Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney will give them the three points in what would be a great response to their 3-0 defeat at Arsenal before the international break. United are 13/10 favourites for the win.

Chelsea are 1/3 odds on for their home game against Aston Villa on the weekend. Tim Sherwood’s Villa are on a major slump having lost five of their last six Premier League games (D1). Even the shaky Chelsea defence should be able to handle the Villains and the Blues will be boosted by the return of Diego Costa following his four match suspension.

Manchester City are also 1/3 as they host Bournemouth. The Cherries have put in a lot of hard work this season, but they have lost three of their four away games. City go without the injured Sergio Aguero but should still have enough firepower to secure the three points.

Open an account with online betting site Sky Bet and you can bet £5 and earn £20 free! Plus with the Sky Bet Club you can also pick up a free bet every week when you bet a total of £25 across any sports!

It’s always a cat and mouse game of knowing when to pull out and when to stay in for the duration of a big accumulator. One punter at online betting site Sky Bet managed to hit the right chord with their betting decision, deciding to use Sky bet’s cash out feature with ten of eleven legs of a £5 acca in the bag.

Results in the big wager included wins for Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Napoli, as well as the draw at Anfield between Liverpool and Norwich. With ten of the eleven legs winning everything was resting on the outcome of Marseille v Lyon, the bet set to be completed with a win for the visitors. Instead of letting the accumulator ride though, the punter cashed out for £1337.75 instead and it proved to be a wise decision.

Lyon did take the lead in the first half through a penalty kick, but Marseille struck back in the 68th minute for an equalizer, which settled the game at 1-1 as the final result, meaning that if the punter had stayed in, the whole thing would have been a bust.

Prince Ali bin al-Hussein from Jordan has confirmed that he will be competing in the FIFA Presidential Election to replace Sepp Blatter as the head of the world football’s governing body. The 39 year was in May’s voting where he took Blatter to a second round of votes before standing down in the contest.

Prince Ali joins UEFA President Michel Platini as oneof the confirmed candidates in the race to get the top job in world football. Prince Ali has been vocal in his criticism of both the way that FIFA was being ran and the philosophies of his opponent Michel Platini. The elections are due to be held on February 26th next year.

“This election should be about football, not personal ambition. We have come too far to walk away now,” Ali said.

“We must overcome deep-seated corruption but I was not brought up to walk away from a tough fight. This is about right and wrong.”

Platini remains strong 8/11 favourite to get the top job and he already has the support of one of the key votes from Asia which is likely to tip things in favour of the Frenchman. Former Fifa executive Chung Mong-joon of South Korea has also indicated that he will run in next year’s election, as has Liberian FA president Musa Bility. They are are 14/1 and 33/1 respectively.

Referring to May’s election, Ali who is 5/2 in Next FIFA President betting added: “I was the only person who dared to challenge Blatter, I ran because I believe that Fifa needs change.

“I had the courage when others feared. They didn’t have the guts to run, but I did.”
