Betting weekend preview (Premiership, Newbury)


Bet on this Weekend's Sport

We have some fantastic sport this weekend, with Man Utd v Aston Villa on Saturday and Liverpool v Everton on Sunday. We also have the 2:20pm at Newbury on Saturday.

Saturday's Premiership Football

Man Utd v Aston Villa - Live on Setanta Sports 1, k/o 5:15pm

Things went well for Manchester United last Sunday, with United outclassing fierce rivals Liverpool 3-0 and with Arsenal losing to Chelsea, United have one hand on the title. With seven games to go, United are five points clear at the top of the table and the title is now theirs to throw away. While Arsenal seem to be out of the running after their defeat at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, Chelsea look like they'll continue to grind out results and push United to the wire. The two teams meet at the Bridge in April in what looks set to be the crunch fixture, although United's matches at home to Arsenal and their bogey team, West Ham, could also be potential banana skins. You'd expect this game against Aston Villa to be a straightforward one for Fergie's men though. Martin O'Neill's team are winless in their last four outings and haven't enjoyed a Premier League victory over United since August 1995. And their 1-0 defeat at home to Sunderland last week suggested that the players are more focused on their summer holidays then ending the season with a flourish. With United at home, bookies have priced them as favourites for this match, with VC Bet offering 1/3 on a home win, while Villa have been priced at 8/1 (Better) to get something at Old Trafford.

Sunday's Premiership Football

Chelsea v Middlesbrough - Live on Setanta Sports 1, k/o 1:30pm

After Chelsea's victory over Arsenal, where the Blues came back from behind to win 2-1, Chelsea's title ambitions have the faintest hope. Chelsea will only be able to capitalise on any Man Utd mishaps if they successfully clear all the jumps in their way. And having stumbled several times already this season there's no guarantee they will. Avram Grant's men may not be a side lacking in confidence, but a fortunate 1-0 win against Sunderland and a 4-4 draw with Tottenham is hardly the stuff of Champions. However, if Chelsea slip up against Boro, all their good work will be undone. Admittedly the chances of Gareth Southgate's team ending Chelsea's four-year unbeaten home league run are slim, but Boro are in relatively good form. They've pulled away from the drop zone and are unbeaten in three games - they may have only won one of those, and that was against Derby, but they also went to Arsenal and managed a draw. A similar result at Stamford Bridge would certainly please the Boro faithful. Chelsea have been priced as favourites at 1/4 (Better), meanwhile Boro have been priced at 10/1 by Centrebet to dent Chelsea's title challenge.

Liverpool v Everton - Live on Sky Sports 1, k/o 4:00pm

The big game on Sunday sees the 206th Merseyside derby, where Liverpool host Everton at Anfield. Merseyside derbies were often described as the most passionate and the most brutal in the football calendar. This fixture will have added relevance as there are only two points separating fourth place Liverpool from fifth place Everton from the coveted Champions League place. Liverpool head into the Merseyside derby at Anfield on Sunday knowing that victory would just about kill off Everton's hopes of Champions League football next season. With only six games remaining after this weekend, the Toffees can ill-afford to slip up. However, while Everton's attention is focused on the league run-in, Liverpool will be diverted by the Champions League, where they face Arsenal twice either side of another meeting with them in the league in the first eight days of April. With Liverpool's home advantage, the Reds have been priced as favourites at 3/4 (VC Bet), meanwhile Everton have been priced at 10/3 by Better to win at Anfield.

Chelsea vs Arsenal betting preview


Chelsea v Arsenal - Live on Sky Sports 1, k/o 4:00pm

The second big game of Super Sunday sees Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge aiming to do what no other team has managed in the last four years - win. The Gunners were the last team to inflict a home defeat on The Blues, and must match that feat to keep the pressure on United at the top. However, Chelsea will go all out for the win that would blow the title race wide open. Chelsea have been in better form in the past few weeks, having won two of the last four games. Arsenal on the other hand have drawn their last four Premiership games on the trot, seeing their three point advantage turn into a three point deficit behind Man Utd. This match will be a tight and anxious affair that could go either way, Arsenal have good record of surprising when the odds are against them. Chelsea's home form has been tremendous in recent years, having remained unbeaten in four years, a statistic that they will be resolute in defending against the Gunners. With both teams title challenge on the line in this match, neither team can afford to sit back and be content with a draw. With Chelsea's home advantage, the Blues have been priced as favourites at 5/4 (VC Bet), meanwhile Arsenal have been priced at 11/5 by Better to keep the pressure on United.

Man United vs Liverpool betting preview


Man United v Liverpool - Live on Sky Sports 1, k/o 1:30pm

The first big match this Super Sunday sees fierce rivals Man United take on Liverpool at Old Trafford. United are strong at home and have lost just one of their 15 fixtures at Old Trafford in the top-flight this term, conceding just five times in the process. United boast plenty of strength in depth and the likes of Anderson and Hargreaves protect the back four just as effectively as Alonso and Mascherano do for Liverpool, while United's attacking options are unrivalled in the Premiership. The Red Devils have triumphed in their last four meetings against Liverpool. However, in recent seasons the Merseyside outfit has a better record at the Theatre of Dreams than most, having prevailed in three of their last eight league visits. Encounters between these sides are invariably tight - only one of their last seven matches has produced more than a solitary goal - and one goal may well again prove enough either way. Rafa Benitez's charges have won their seven fixtures in all competitions subsequent to the shock defeat to Barnsley and the club's most potent attacking weapons, Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres, have been in cracking form. Indeed, the dynamic duo are responsible for eight of Liverpool's last 10 goals overall and there should be more to come. Either an uncharacteristic mistake a moment of brilliance on the part of either of these giants of the game could prove the difference. Man Utd have been priced as favourites at 5/6 (Better), meanwhile Liverpool have been priced at 11/4 by Centrebet to dent United's title challenge.

Man Utd to Win 5/6 Better
Draw 21/10 Centrebet
Liverpool to Win 33/10 VC Bet

Betting weekend preview (Premiership, FA-Cup, Rugby Six Nations, Cheltenham Festival)


Bet on this Weekend's Sport

We have some fantastic sport this weekend, with the FA Cup Quarter Finals featuring Man Utd v Portsmouth and Barnsley v Chelsea and Premiership action featuring Wigan v Arsenal. We also have more Six Nations action with Scotland v England and the 2:40pm at Sandown on Saturday.


Saturday's FA Cup Football

Man Utd v Portsmouth - Live on Sky Sports 1, k/o 12:45pm

To kick off the FA Cup quarter finals, we have the only all Premiership fixture with Man Utd v Portsmouth at Old Trafford. These two sides have played each other twice this season, and both times Ronaldo has been the centre of attention; being sent off in the first meeting and scoring two fantastic goals in the second game at Old Trafford. Don't bet against Ronaldo running this game either. United really stated their intent in this competition in the last round, where they demolished arch rivals Arsenal 4-0. The African Cup of Nations has really affected Portsmouth, as they had key squad players missing, their top 6 rivals have been able to capitalise, leading to Portsmouth dropping away from the coveted European place. Harry Redknapp will view the FA Cup as a realistic route into Europe, so you can bet that Portsmouth will go all out at Old Trafford. With United at home and in devastating form this season, bookies have priced them as favourites for this match, with Better offering 4/11 on a home win, while Portsmouth have been priced at 10/1 (VC Bet) to upset the rulebook and progress to the semis.

Man Utd to Win 3/10 VC Bet
Draw 18/5 Centrebet
Portsmouth to Win 15/2 Better

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on Man Utd v Portsmouth if Nani scores at anytime in this match.*


Barnsley v Chelsea - Live on BBC 1, k/o 5:30pm

This match has a real David vs. Goliath feel to it, with Championship side Barnsley's entire squad costing 10m less then Michael Essien alone. However, Barnsley have already defied the odds once in this competition, having beaten European champions Liverpool at Anfield, a tremendous achievement for any team. Although Chelsea are still in contention for all competitions, Avram Grant will view the FA Cup as Chelsea most 'winnable' trophy, especially in atoning for their Carling Cup Final defeat to Tottenham. Chelsea also come off two impressive performances, where they have score seven goals and conceded none. On paper Barnsley look to have little chance of progression, but with the magic of the FA Cup, anything can happen. Considering the gulf in class between these two teams, bookmakers have placed Chelsea as favourites, pricing them at 4/11 (Centrebet) to get the away win, while Better have priced Barnsley at 8/1 to beat the odds and pull off a tremendous victory.

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on Barnsley v Chelsea if Frank Lampard scores at anytime in this match.*


Sunday's FA Cup Football

Middlesbrough v Cardiff - Live on BBC 1, k/o 2:00pm

Middlesbrough may count themselves lucky to be still involved in the FA Cup after their fortunate win against Sheffield Utd in the last round. In that match, a freak Paddy Kenny own goal deep into extra time gifted Middlesbrough the result in a drab affair. Middlesbrough have been enjoying some good form of late, having won five matches since the turn of the year. This match represents Cardiff's first FA Cup quarter final in 81 years, and the occasion won't be lost on them. With their domestic form deserting them and leaving them in 14th place in the Championship, the FA Cup provides a welcomed distraction. Bookmakers have placed Middlesbrough as favourites, pricing them at 4/7 (Better) to get the home win, while VC Bet have priced Cardiff at 4/1 to reinstall some pride at the Riverside Stadium.

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on Middlesbrough v Cardiff if Stewart Downing scores at anytime in this match.*


Bristol Rovers v West Brom - Live on BBC 1, k/o 6:00pm

This match sees a clash between two Football League teams, League One Bristol Rovers v Championship highfliers West Brom. Similar to Cardiff, Bristol Rovers have been disappointing in League One. Having been considered one of the favourites for promotion, they find themselves languishing in 14th. Having already produced one fantastic performance to knock out Fulham in the third round, the magic of the Cup and the atmosphere of their home ground could easily inspire them to reach their first FA Cup semi-final. West Brom have been one of the best performing teams in the Championship this season, as they are still realistic contenders to win the league. With players such as Championship Player of the Year Kevin Phillips and Zoltan Gera bringing Premiership experience and real quality, don't bet against West Brom hounding the Bristol Rovers defence. Whatever the end result should be, this promises to be a fantastic game of football. West Brom have been priced as favourites at 11/10 (Centrebet), meanwhile Bristol Rovers have been priced at 12/5 by Better to claim another big team scalp.

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on Bristol Rovers v West Brom if Kevin Phillips scores at anytime in this match.*


Sunday's Premiership Football

Wigan v Arsenal? Live on Sky Sports 1, k/o 4:00pm

The big Premiership match this weekend sees Wigan host league leaders Arsenal at the JJB Stadium. Steve Bruce has pulled off some surprising victories since taking the helm at Wigan back in November. He has led the Latics to wins over Blackburn, Newcastle, Derby (twice) and West Ham but a win over the League leaders is another matter entirely. After all, Wigan have enjoyed no Premier League success over the Gunners in the past and the North Londoners will be buoyed by their heroics in Milan. Wenger's young guns may have been misfiring of late but they still have lost just one Premier League match all season. They've gone 12 matches unbeaten since they surprisingly lost at Middlesbrough back in early December. They've also been boosted by the return to fitness of the Dutch maestro Robin Van Persie. The Gunners should have too much confidence and firepower for the lowly Latics. Arsenal have been priced as favourites at 8/13 (VC Bet), meanwhile Wigan have been priced at 11/2 by Centrebet to take all 3 points.

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on Bristol Rovers v West Brom if Kevin Phillips scores at anytime in this match.*


Rugby Six Nations Tournament

This Saturday sees the annual Calcutta Cup between Scotland and England at Murrayfield. After England's heroics against titans France, where England ran out 13-24 winners, England have a real chance of winning the competition. All the focus will be on England to retain the Cup. England have been priced as favourites for this match, with Better offering 2/9 to capitalise on Scotland's underwhelming form, while Scotland have been priced at 2/1 (VC Bet) to bounce back and give a solid performance.

BGbet are running a fantastic 6 Nations special - Place a bet on the first or last tryscorer for any of the following 6 Nations matches this weekend and if the player listed below scores a try at anytime in the 80 minutes BGbet will refund all losing first and last tryscorer stakes on that match.*

Betting weekend preview (Champions League, Uefa-Cup)


We have some exciting European football this week, with Man Utd hosting Lyon at Old Trafford and Arsenal travelling to the San Siro to face AC Milan on Tuesday in the Champions League. Wednesday sees Chelsea entertain Olympiakos at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League while on Thursday Everton face a tough trip to Fiorentina and Tottenham host PSV Eindhoven at White Heart Lane.


Tuesday's Champions League Football

Man Utd v Lyon - Live on ITV1, k/o 19:45pm

After the 1-1 draw in France United will be looking to record a victory over Lyon to progress through to the last 16. United, one of only three teams left unbeaten in this year's competition, will be looking to achieve their tenth successive victory at old Trafford in Europe. A run which would will equal Juventus' Champions League record of 10 which was set back in 1997. United have to stop Lyon scoring to progress, a feat that they have managed 13 times at old Trafford this season. Man Utd have be installed as favourites with Betterbet offering 2/5, while Centrebet value Lyon as 67/20.

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on Man Utd v Newcastle if Ryan Giggs scores at anytime in this match.


AC Milan v Arsenal - Live on ITV4 1, k/o 19:45pm

The first match between these sides this season ended in a goalless draw at the Emirates. Since their meeting in February Arsenal have picked up 2 points from a possible 6 and lost Eduardo, who had established an effective partnership with Adebayor, for the rest of the season. Arsenal fans will be delighted that they may be able to welcome back Robin Van Persie to the team as they look to secure passage through to the last 16. AC Milan do not go into the game on the best of form having drawn their last two games 1-1. However they have won their last four Champions League games at home and have only conceded three goals in nine games in all competitions.

Draw 41/20 Centrebet
Arsenal to Win 3/1 VC Bet

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on AC Milan v Arsenal if Theo Walcott scores at anytime in this match.


Wednesday's Champions League Football

Chelsea v Olympiakos - Live on Sky Sports 3 k/o 19:45pm

Chelsea have recovered well after they were beaten in the Carling Cup Final by Spurs. A 4-0 away victory over West Ham at Upton Park shows that Chelsea have the strength and depth to be challenging on three fronts still. The biggest problem facing Grant will be who to play. Will he bring Drogba back or will he continue to stamp his own mark on the Chelsea team: There were three midfield goal scorers at the weekend that will all be pushing for a starting birth. However there is room for improvements in Chelsea's home for in the Champions League. They have only won once and drawn the other two games. Olympiakos will be looking to inflict Chelsea's first Champions League defeat this year and progress through to the last 16. However the bookies have gone for Chelsea as favourites with BGbet offering 2/7 for a Chelsea victory and Centrebet offering 12/1 for Olympiakos win.

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on Chelsea v Olympiakos if Frank Lampard scores at anytime in this match.


Thursday's UEFA Cup Football

Fiorentina v Everton - Live on ITV4, k/o 19:45pm

Everton go into the quarter-final on the back of 5 straight wins in all competitions, including an impressive 8-1 aggregate victory over SK Brann in the last round on the UEFA Cup and victories over Portsmouth, Man City and Reading in the Premiership. Everton also have a striker in red hot form, Yakubu has six goals in three games. With Betterbet offering 6/1 for him to be first scorer it may be worth backing him. Fiorentina were dealt a massive injury blow for the game, Chelsea old boy and the Violas leading scorer Adrian Mutu suffered a knee injury during a recent game against Roma and will miss the tie against Everton. Even with Mutu's absence Fiorentina are favourites with VC Bet offering 13/10 for a home win, with BGbet offering 11/5 for an Everton win.

BGbet are offering to refund all losing first goalscorer bets on Fiorentina v Everton if Andy Johnson scores at anytime in this match.


Tottenham v PSV Eindhoven - Live on ITV1, k/o 20:05pm

Tottenham obviously had one eye on this fixture with their team selection for the weekends game against Birmingham with several players rested. However this backfired on Spurs as they lost 4-1. Described as a ?wake-up call' by Poyet, Tottenham will be looking to put that loss behind them with a strong performance against PSV. PSV currently top the Dutch league by six points however they were surprised by FC Utrecht in their last match. BGbet have made Tottenham favourites offering them at 4/6 for the win, while PSV have been prices at 5/1 by VC Bet to progress through to the last 16.
