Win FREE cash by beating Mark Lawrenson in our Premier League predictions game

Come and have a go if you think you're smart enough.


Think you know your top-flight onions? Sick of explaining to your mates that you would be world’s greatest tipster if you just had the chance to prove it?

Well, the time to mix it with the big boys is here.

That’s right, Paddy’s pulled out all the stops to seal the transfer swoop of the season and sign up mighty Mark Lawrenson to deliver his Premier League predictions right here on Paddy Power News each and every week.

And now you can pit your wits against the former Liverpool defender turned top pundit for the chance to win cold hard cash.


Are you brave enough to take on Lawro? Every week we’ll be giving you, the Paddy Power punter, the chance to throw your hat into the ring to take down our game-calling Goliath. And if you can fell Lawro in his weekly tipping competition you’ll pocket £/€50 cash straight into your Paddy Power account, and we’ll keep rolling over that amount if he does the business, too.

You need to outscore Lawro with one point awarded for the right result and three points for a correct scoreline (maximum of 3 points per game, there’s not four-pointers here). If it’s a draw we’ll go to a tie-breaker of who got the most correct scores. If it’s still level after that we’ll go to goal difference vs the actual results.

If the weekly prize isn’t won it rolls over until someone can outsmart the Premier League Pythagoras.

Getting involved is easy. Winning? Not so much

All you need to do is follow the simple instructions on the @PaddyPower Twitter page putting out the call to the brave and bold to get involved.
