Coral Football Jackpot’s top prize in excess of £250k

| 29.08.2014

Coral’s Football Jackpot rolls over again from the guaranteed £100k, with a top prize of more than £250k. If you can predict the outcomes of 15 selected Premier League, Championship and Scottish Premiership fixtures, staking a minimum of £1 per line, then you could win big.

A full list of terms and conditions, plus how to play is available here. Coral’s football experts have even given their two pence on the featured games to give helpful hints if you want them.

Manchester City v Stoke (Home win)
City are currently building up a head of the steam in the Premier League, having netted an impressive five times in just two games. They face the Potters, who are yet to register a win this term, having not lost to them in the league since 1999. Another Etihad victory beckons.

Newcastle v Crystal Palace (Home win)
The Magpies and Eagles will be keen to establish themselves in the pecking order, at either end of the table, with Newcastle having compiled a squad that could compete for a Europa League place. While Palace have appointed Neil Warnock as their new manager, signs indicate that the home side will be too strong, and this presents an ideal opportunity for new signings to really establish themselves.

QPR v Sunderland (Away win)
Sunderland have only lost once in their last eight duels with the Hoops, winning on five occasions. After Gus Poyet’s boys held Manchester United to a draw in their last league outing, morale should be high. QPR, meanwhile, have struggled upon their return to the Premier League, losing twice without scoring.

Swansea v West Brom (Draw)
While the Swans remarkably have a 100 per cent record this season, the Baggies have shown they are hard to break down. Despite a good start to the season, new signing Gylfi Sigurdsson may find difficulty unlocking West Brom’s stubborn defence, that frustrated Southampton at St Mary’s last time out. All signs point to a draw here, which after the start both teams have had, wouldn’t be a bad result.

West Ham v Southampton (Home win)
This is an away day that Saints supporters have struggled to watch over the last two seasons, and they can expect ugly viewing again. Sam Allardyce’s Hammers hit their stride by beating London rivals Crystal Palace last time out, while Southampton failed to score.

Brighton v Charlton (Away win)
Charlton will head into this exciting and potentially high-scoring clash having not yet suffered a defeat in the Championship this term. This should see them over the line against the Seagulls, who have lost two of their three scorers from last season’s victory over the Addicks.

Derby v Ipswich (Draw)
The Tractor Boys do seem to travel well to Pride Park, so we can expect an open game and clash of styles here. A draw, although perhaps not as enthralling as 4-4 played out in the East Midlands last term, looks likely again.

Fulham v Cardiff (Away win)
The Bluebirds are in fantastic form, with four wins from six games in all competitions. They should have too much for Felix Magath’s men, who have lost four Championship matches on the trot. Cardiff also hold the recent head-to-head record after doing a league double over the Cottagers last campaign.

Leeds v Bolton (Draw)
These two relegation strugglers are facing a six-pointer already, but expect a share of the spoils here. Leeds’ new signings need time to gel, while Bolton will be over-reliant on loan signing Joe Mason.

Aberdeen v Partick Thistle (Home win)
Derek McInnes’ Dons were strong against this opposition last term, and should be so again here to kickstart their season. Thistle have made a mixed start to the season, and this New Firm team can capitalise on that.

Hamilton v Ross County (Home win)
High-flying Hamilton should have more than enough for early basement occupiers Ross County, who have sacked their father and son team of manager and director of football. Academical sit second, and have talents like Alister Crawford and veteran striker Jason Scotland that will fire them past this lowly opposition.

Everton v Chelsea (Draw)
The Toffees have an excellent recent home record against heavyweights Chelsea, only losing at Goodison twice in their six most recent Premier League clashes. Roberto Martinez’s men beat the Blues 1-0 last season, with Chelsea taking the spoils at Stamford Bridge, so this will likely be a close encounter.

Aston Villa v Hull (Draw)
A goalless stalemate could be the most likely result here, with both teams proving hard to beat in their opening two fixtures. Although James Chester could be a big miss for the Tigers, Steve Bruce will aim to replace him with enough steel to hold off a Villa challenge.

Tottenham v Liverpool (Home win)
Spurs look rejuvenated this term under new boss Mauricio Pochettino and, having sorted out defensive frailties from last season, could have enough to stifle the Reds, who exhibited problems at the back against Man City. It will take a while for Brendan Rodgers to bed in new recruits, while Spurs are high on confidence after their 4-0 dismantling of QPR. Expect new boy Mario Balotelli to feature for Liverpool, though Pochettino will have a plan to frustrate the temperamental Italian.

Leicester v Arsenal (Away win)
Despite injury to Olivier Giroud, who has a broken leg, the Gunners should have enough to beat the Foxes, though they can’t afford not to take them seriously. In Leonardo Ulloa the East Midlands outfit have a striker who can cause problems from set pieces, so Arsenal need to be switched on.
