Welcome to The Treble, Pies’ new weekly betting column, sponsored by the most excellent folks at Titan Bet.

Here’s how it works:

1. Pies selects three bets from the coming weekend’s action

2. We make OUR predictions

3. YOU add your predictions

That’s it! Betting hats on? Let’s go…

1. Man City vs Man Utd – First goalscorer?
Another thriller in Manchester on Saturday lunchtime? Well, United MUST win to stay in touch with Chelsea, whilst City could use three points in the race for fourth. We want to know, who’s going to score first? The match is set up for City striker Carlos Tevez to score against the club that unwisely let him go. But instead I’m going for EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR, who has fresh legs and has no World Cup to think about.

2. Inter vs Juventus – Correct score?
A massive game for Jose Mourinho’s Inter, this. The Nerazzurri lie second in the Serie A table, one point behind red-hot Roma. Juve, struggling in sixth, won the corresponding fixture at home in December, and considering Mourinho’s ability to engineer wins at vital times, I’m going to predict a 2-0 INTER WIN.

3. Tottenham vs Chelsea – Half-time/Full-time result?
Fresh from a famous 2-1 win against Arsenal, Tottenham welcome Premier League leaders Chelsea to the Lane. Can they claim a second massive scalp in a week? I’m doubtful. Tottenham have a poor record against the Blues and whilst confidence must be high in Arry’s camp, it’s classic Spurs form to follow a high with a low. We want you to predict the half-time/full-time result. I predict DRAW/CHELSEA.


Once you’ve made your three predictions, you might be interested in winning the small matter of $100 million? If you can correctly predict the result of every World Cup match, that’s what you’ll win! Has to be worth a shot. Click below to have a go…


I’d also like to start a Treble league table – One point for every correct prediction, two bonus points (!) if you get all three correct in the same week (so a maximum of five points available each week). If you take part every week, you have more chance of topping the table, natch.

As the Prem season is almost over, this season’s tipping table will run until the end of the World Cup this summer. There will be shiny prizes – yet to be decided – for the top tipsters.


To recap:

1. Man City vs Man Utd – First goalscorer? Pies says Emmanuel Adebayor

2. Inter vs Juventus – Correct score? Pies says Inter 2-0 Juventus

3. Tottenham vs Chelsea – Half-time/Full-time result? Pies says Draw/Chelsea

Let’s have YOUR tips for this weekend…
