We all know someone, maybe yourself, who fancies themselves as a top tipster. Whether you’re statistics crazy or a firm believer in gut instinct, come the weekend it’s time to put your money where your mouth is.

Marathonbet’s Tips for Strips challenges punters to tip up their top football selection ahead of the weekend’s fixtures and outwit their fellow fans. In return the person who tips up the biggest-priced selection wins a football strip of their choice from the Marathonbet team. Happy days.

We’ll make a call over social media every Friday morning for your tips ahead of the weekend. Your selection can be a single punt on just one market or a spectacular 20-fold accumulator – the choice is yours – but selections must be available to bet on at the Marathonbet sportsbook (
