TIPS FOR STRIPS: 1-0 correct score trumps two tasty trebles in fight for new shirt


The latest Tips for Strips winner has bagged himself a free Granada shirt after predicting Leicester would beat Watford 1-0 at Vicarage Road. You’ll be surprised to hear the winner was in fact a Hornets fan, however. 

Chris, 19, from London, backed the Foxes to leave London with the slender win as an insurance measure against his team losing. He told us: “I picked 1-0 Leicester as a way to balance the emotions! I’m a Watford fan so thought if we lost then at least I’d be in with a chance of getting something out of it. I could see a perfect away performance from Leicester in truth. It was a real smash and grab like I predicted.”

A Mahrez strike in the second half proved good enough to seal all three points for the champions-elect. Chris’ punt returned a tidy 15/2 with Marathonbet and beat two other winning Tips for Strips selections: An Arsenal/Spurs, Chelsea/Stoke and Everton/West Ham both teams to score treble (returning 41/10) and a Watford/Leicester to be drawing at HT, Newcastle/Bournemouth BTTS  and Manchester City -1 (returning just over 18/5).
