Yet another goal against Arsenal - as tipped by Lewis Jones

There were plenty of football winners last week - including a cheeky over 5.5 goals tip in Serie A - as well a massive week for our NFL man and successful tips in a host of other sports and reality TV. All the details in our regular Monday round-up...

"On to NFL where Romilly Evans had a week to remember with 5/5 from his Kansas City @ Oakland preview, for a huge profit of more than 20 points, helped by Latavius Murray scoring the first touchdown at a big price."

Kicking off with European football, where Dave Farrar made a huge 12.4 profit on the weekend Serie A column as Napoli v Cagliari 'went mental' as predicted, with a 3-3 draw meaning both his Over 4.5 and Over 5.5 Goals tips landed at in 4.216/5 and 8.27/1 respectively.

It was also an excellent week for Spanish football expert Tobias Gourlay with six winners from seven bets on his La Liga preview and a four-point profit.

Back on the home front, Luke Moore is now in profit for the Premier League season after he landed a full house of winners on his Crystal Palace v Liverpool preview, for a profit of 2.78 points.

The 'Big Match Tactical View' team of Michael Cox and Alan Thompson also had a pair of winners in their preview, as the 1.9210/11 lay of Liverpool and Over 3.5 Goals at 3.814/5 both landed. Michael also picked out Mile Jedinak as a scorer - although he went for the bigger price on FGS.

Lewis Jones took his season profit to an impressive 15.8 points after Wayne Rooney scored at the Emirates, as advised in the preview.

Jaymes Monte made a profit on his Hull v Tottenham preview as the main recommended bet of Over 2.5 Goals came in at 2.111/10 - and he also called out Jake Livermore as a good value scorer bet at 9.08/1.

Mike Norman's Premier League 3pms and Championship preview columns made a profit at the weekend helped along by Under 1.5 Goals landing at Leicester at 3.711/4 and Birmingham winning at Rotherham as advised at 3.711/4.

And finally on football, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's good start as Burton manager has helped to boost League Two columnist Ian Lamont's season profit to more than eight points, with a 3.613/5 wager on the Brewers to win at Wycombe last Monday the highlight.

On to NFL where Romilly Evans had a week to remember with 5/5 from his Kansas City @ Oakland preview, for a huge profit of more than 20 points, helped by Latavius Murray scoring the first touchdown at a big price.

Staying in the US and basketball, where NBA columnist Nick Shiamborous correctly tipped all three NBA games on Sunday for a profit of almost five points.

The golf each-way column had yet another winning bet as Paul Krishnamurty's pick, Victor Dubuisson, advised at 20/1, finished tied second at the World Tour Championship - meaning Paul just missed out on the hat-trick of consecutive tournament winners.

It was also close but no cigar for Mike Norman as his 100/1 selection, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, was matched at 1.4840/85 for the win and 1.051/20 in the top 5 market as he led with two holes to go, but then collapsed completely, finding the water twice and ending up ninth. Ouch.

Better news for Steve Rawlings who backed Rory McIlroy to be leading after round one, which paid out as he was tied first. He then layed some of his 6.411/2 tournament winner wager on Rory back at just 2.568/5 and backed the eventual winner Henrik Stenson at 6.611/2.

Steve also added both Justin Rose and Victor Dubuisson at 13.012/1 and 32.031/1 respectively after rounds two and three - so ended the week with the first four home all backed. All the details in Steve's in-play blog.

On to rugby union, where Simon Mail had another profitable week as Ireland beat Australia by 1-12 points at 2.56/4 and Australia scored 20 points or more at 1.84/5, while England won on the handicap of -17.5 against Samoa, as advised at 1.834/5. That's now 5.89 profits for the season for Simon.

Finishing up with X-Factor where Jack Houghton advised a big lay of Stevi Ritchie for the first of a double elimination at 1.768/11. He managed to survive until Sunday - meaning the bet paid out - where he lost in a sing off with Andrea Faustini

Jack's portfolio is now made up of Ben Haemow, Lauren Platt and Fleur East - the only three remaining acts never to have been in a sing off. East - a pre-series tip at 40.039/1 from Jack - is now the 2.166/5 favourite. 

Jack - you've made this column your own.
