We celebrate the best bets that have come in over weekend

Lucky Linda won £16,000 with just one winner, while the F1 Insider again demonstrated what creative thinking can achieve. Get the latest Weekend Winners.

Inside, outside, make it pay

When you're betting on F1, creativity is a must. Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix produced a familiar outcome - cars go round really fast and Lewis Hamilton's is the fastest of them - and unless you're piling into the Mercedes man week after week, a delve into the sub-markets is the best way to profit.

Step forward our F1 Insider, whose knowledge of the pit-lane ins and outs puts him/her in pole position when it comes to landing winners.

Insider was at his/her best on Sunday, eyeing an opportunity in Sky Bet's specials. They'd offered 6/4 about no safety car being deployed and, owing to their knowledge of the intricacies of the Hungaroring, the Insider felt that was wrong. And he was right. She was right. They were right.

With profits also secured thanks to an each-way steal in qualifying, by now the message ought to be clear: follow the F1 Insider for your weekly dose of Va Va Voom in the Va Va Vrooms.

Baston bags EFL winner

Tom Carnduff is our resident EFL expert and he showed the benefits of a summer spent studying, rather than holidaying, with an opening weekend winner to set the tone for the season.

Our man correctly identified Borja Baston as a player Swansea would have to rely on up front and with Hull's defence unconvincing, the Spaniard was able to strike in the first game of the campaign.

Having advised him to do so at upwards of 2/1, making Baston his bet of the weekend, our expert was rewarded for his foresight. Good game, good game.

Lucky Linda

No, not an after-hours act in Albufeira, but a punter who turned £6.30 into £16,000 and change - despite selecting five losers.

That's what happens when you get all six placed in a Lucky 63 at prices ranging from 10/1 to 50/1, proving that the Weekend Winners aren't always those who pass the post in first place.

Linda's spectacular sextet started off with Primo's Corner at Glorious Goodwood, where Gulliver also hit the frame in the Stewards' Cup thanks to Sky Bet's enhanced place offer on the Unibet-sponsored contest.

I want to be a part of it

Michael from Manchester was the latest punter to land a smash-and-grab in North America thanks to a £5 each-way patent on Saturday night.

With the first selection running in the 20.10 at Woodbine and the last of three going in the 20.21 at Saratoga, it took just a quarter of an hour for £70 to become £11,000, after which Michael presumably went down 'New York, New York', dubbed 'the nightclub that never sleeps!'

That closes at 1.

Is it 'cos I'm Kewal?

A Birmingham punter who shall remain anonymous was rewarded for looking beyond the obvious upon the return of the Sky Bet EFL.

The gentleman in question placed a £5 six-fold, with four of the teams outsiders and none odds-on, and when all six won he was able to collect £8531.

Andrew from Nottingham was similarly brave with his selections as £1 became £3100 thanks in large part to Charlton.

The Addicks were a winner for Kewal (damnit) too, but Andrew needed them to be leading at half-time which they were after a 43rd-minute strike against Blackburn.
