Premier League Betting

West Ham v Chelsea Betting Preview

It’s back to league action for the Blues after winning the League Cup final on the weekend. They watched Man City slip up by losing their Premier League match on the weekend, and now all Chelsea need to do is maintain consistency until the end of the season and the title is in the bag. Will they be able to take three points against the floundering Hammers at the Boleyn Ground on Wednesday night?

Chelsea defenders have been doing the business lately for the Blues and could be valuable marks in the first goalscorer market. Back a correct score selection in the game and if your selection opens the scoring in the first twenty minutes of the game, then online betting site Boylesports will double your original First Goalscorer odds! The popular bookie also offers insurance on 5-fold or bigger accas.

West Ham v Chelsea Betting Tips

The season has turned pretty sour for big Sam Allardyce and it could all be Chelsea’s fault. The Hammers lost against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day 2-0 and ever since then, the Hammers have been going downhill. It culminated in a 3-1 home defeat against Crystal Palace on the weekend and they are on a five match winless streak at the Boleyn Ground (D3 L2) and that’s not the kind of form to try and repel Chelsea. West Ham have only managed the one win in their last ten Premier League matches (W1 D5 L4) and pressure is on Big Sam. West Ham have failed to score in five of their last six Premier League matches against Chelsea, including the last four in a row.

West Ham didn’t get a single shot on target in the game at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day. Their best route to goal is probably from a set pieces, as the Hammers have scored more headed goals than any other team in the Premier League this season (15). Enner Valencia was on the scoresheet on the weekend in their defeat against Palace, and he is a 3/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market at Boylesports. The Hammers have just two clean sheets in their last ten and only one team has prevented Chelsea from scoring in their last 27 Premier League matches (Sunderland).

Chelsea claimed the Capital One Cup on the weekend at Wembley and now it is back to league duty. With they methodically plod their way to the title now? Chelsea have won 13 and lost just one of the last 17 Barclays Premier League games against the Hammers and Jose Mourinho has a record of six wins and no defeats in seven Barclays Premier League matches as a coach against West Ham. Chelsea haven’t always looked that fluent away from the Bridge this season, however they have have lost just two of their last 16 Premier League away games, winning ten of them.

Diego Costa is 4/1 favourite in the first goalscorer market at online bookmaker Boylesports, and Eden Hazard, who looks better and better with every game, is trading at a price of 5/1 to open the scoring. Don’t ignore Chelsea’s defenders in the game, as they have contributed 17 goals and 13 assists this season in all competitions and Branislav Ivanovic has scored in four of his last seven appearances in all competitions for Chelsea. With back to back wins in their last two away games, Chelsea should be value for points.

West Ham v Chelsea Betting Odds

Chelsea 8/13, Draw 3/1, West ham 5/1

West Ham v Chelsea Predictions

West Ham are in a bit of a funk, and tough to see them pulling out of it against Chelsea, a side who they have struggled against in the top flight. Even if Chelsea end up being a little bit flat after their big Wembley experience on the weekend, they have the quality to find a way through and bank three precious points in their title hunt.

There were some big acca wins around last week with all the midweek football betting action flying around, and one bookmaker who suffered a big blow was Boylesports. One partner from Dublin hit them for €89,000 off a meagre €10 accumulator.

It was a big week for favourites winning matches across the country and in Europe and punters really cashed in, especially from the Champions League and top tiers of English football. The Boylesports punter built a 15-fold acca and defied the enormous odds of 8900/1 to land the windfall.

The fifteen teams were Juventus, Barcelona, Norwich, Brentford, Derby, Ipswich, Middlesbrough, Watford, Cardiff, Wolves, Bristol City, Preston, Swindon, Bristol Rovers and Grimsby.

Liam Glynn of BoyleSports said: “Tuesday night’s football results were just a kick up the ass for Boylesports with punters scoring left right and centre.

“The results cost the firm €2 million in payouts through all channels and are by far the worst football results of the season so far.”

He added “We wish the lucky Dublin punter who turned his €10 Accumulator into a whopping €89K on Tuesday night happy spending and it goes to show that small stakes can return big dividends.”

Lukaku (Everton)

Arsenal v Everton Betting Preview

Can Arsenal shake off their midweek shock home defeat against Monaco in the UEFA Champions League during the week? Not many saw that coming and with a five match winless streak going against the Toffees, it may not be the easiest game in which to pick themselves up in. Everton haven’t been trusted by punters all season and go as heavy underdogs for their trip to North London.

There are some good options in the first goalscorer market for this one, and back a winner with online betting site Boylesports and you could double your winnings! Land a successful first goalscorer bet on Arsenal v Everton betting and if that first goal is scored in the first 20 minutes of the game, then Boylesports will pay you out double your original odds!

Arsenal v Everton Betting Tips

So the Gunners are on a five match winless streak against Everton, and after their slump in midweek against Monaco, how they will respond here? The Gunners were, quote frankly, woeful against Monaco but they are still going to be backed to get the better of an untrustworthy Everton on Sunday. Arsenal have  conceded just five first half goals in their last 18 Premier League games so you should expect them to build a solid platform for themselves, even if your push for a draw/Arsenal half time full time wager while they get on their feet after midweek, an option at 3/1 with online bookmaker Boylesports.

Olivier Giroud has scored three goals in his last three games against Everton and six goals in his last eight Premier League starts overall, and makes a natural mark in the anytime goalscorer market for a price of even money, the same quote as teammate Alexis Sanchez. It was Giroud who netted a last minute equaliser at Goodison Park in a 2-2 draw earlier in the season. The last three games between these in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals, so that should be an option to weigh up at 8/11. Arsenal overall are in decent form in the English top flight, having won seven of their last nine (L2). They have won their last six in a row at home.

Another thing which should send punters towards Arsenal is the fact that Everton have won none of their last 20 away matches against Arsenal in all competitions (D4 L16). The Toffees are only one of two sides who have dropped more points from winning positions (Swansea) this season than Arsenal’s tally of 14 this season in the top flight. Everton just haven’t been at the races at all this term, having won just one of their last 10 Premier League matches in total W1 D4 L5.

Their away record this season in the top flight reads W3 D3 L7 and they have taken just the one victory in their last eight away from Goodison Park (W1 D1 L6). So a pretty horrid record and they have managed just the three away goals in their last six played. That having been said, they have held out for draws in their last two league visits to the Emirates, a 1-1 and a 0-0. But this next meeting doesn’t have the look of being a low scoring affair at all. Romelu Steven Naismith has scored in his last two Premier League appearances against the Gunners and is a 3/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market.

Arsenal v Everton Betting Odds

Arsenal 8/15, Draw 3/1, Everton 5/1

Arsenal v Everton Predictions

Everton have held out against Arsenal recently in the league, but they are in a shocking run of away form and just can’t be backed with any confidence. Arsenal should pick themselves up after their midweek woes to bank a home victory.

The Honda Classic golf betting has, not too surprisingly, Rory McIlroy at the head of the market by a long shot. A very long shot infact, as the Northern Ireland star tees off this week on the PGA as 10/3 favourite with online betting site Boylesports. That makes him the only man in the field in single figures to land the win, so is there any point in looking any further than McIlroy?

Well, McIlroy came close last season, losing in a play off against Russell Henley. McIlroy has won at the Florida event before, landing the title in 2012 and he is looking in far better shape than he was at this stage last season. He carded a big win at the Dubai Desert Classic of course (which followed his 2nd place finish in Abu Dhabi) this season already, but there is likely to be far stiffer opposition this week than what he faced out there.

There is a good chasing pack of Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia and Keegan Bradley, all the marks coming in at under 30/1 in Honda Classic betting this year. Rose is a solid candidate with three top five finishes on the bounce at the event and while Dustin Johnson has put up some good early form this season, his track record at the PGA National doesn’t make him immediately bankable.

Keegan Bradley, Ryan Palmer and even Lee Westwood all have solid stats and or form to warrant considering, but can any of them stop an in-form and hungry Rory McIlroy, who may well have a bit of retribution on his mind after admitting to throwing away his chance at the title in the 2014 play off. With online betting site Boylesports putting up a great promotion, it makes McIlroy worthy of a punt this week.

Place a pre-tournament outright winner wager on the Honda Classic and if your selection finished second or third (which does include tied finishes), then Boylesports will refund your lost stake as a free bet up to the value of £50. New customer registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Most punters will be expecting Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea all to be finding the back of the net on the weekend in their respective Premier League matches. Will all three having winnable-looking matches, then the goals should come for them.

Chelsea host the leaky Burnley defence at Stamford Bridge, and the Blues attack has been bolstered by the return of Diego Costa. The Blues won 3-1 on the road against the Clarets earlier in the season, so they should break down the relegation-threatened Burnley again.

The Gunners will be looking to the likes of Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez to win them three points at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace. The Gunners have great form there and go as favourites in the match outright. Manchester United also hit the road, when Wayne Rooney and co head to south Wales to take on Swansea.

New mobile customers at Boylesports are able to take some great enhanced odds on all three of United, Arsenal and Chelsea scoring on the weekend. Register with a mobile device at the bookmaker through this link, and then place a wager of up to £20 on the enhanced odds of 5/2 on Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United all to score (enhanced form 1/2).

If all three do score, then you can win £50 in free bets plus £20 stake in cash. If bet loses, £20 stake is refunded as a free bet within 24 hours. Win £50 in free bets plus £20 stake in cash. If bet loses, £20 stake is refunded as a free bet within 24 hours.

De Gea (Manchester United)

Swansea v Manchester United Betting Preview

An interesting game down in South Wales as Manchester United look to solidify their chances of booking a top four finish this season. The Red Devils have looked shaky on the road though defensively and tacticall, so will that let Swansea in to do what would be a mightily surprising league double over the Old Trafford crew?

Dip into the first goalscorer market at online betting site Boylesports and grab some great extra value on the popular market. Back a selectin in the first goalscorer market and if your player scores the opening goal inside the first twenty minutes of the game, Boylesports will double your original odds for you! Great promotion and new customers registering an account with them can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Swansea v Manchester United Betting Tips

The Swans are clutching onto a to a mid table spot despite having won just one of their last seven Premier League matches. They are currently winless in their last three at home, having taken away two draws and a loss there recently. They did pull out a shock 2-1 win at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season though, but their bright start to the season has long been forgotten. Swansea have now scored just nine goals from their last 11 Premier League matches and not more than once in a game during that run. Problems there and selling off Wilfried Bony doesn’t appear to have been the smartest of moves by them.

Swansea have put up just a W1 D3 L3 record in their last seven and may find the going hard against a United side, who haven’t even been all that convincing on the road this season. Hard to see where the goals are coming from for Garry Monk’s men and the best that they may be able to get out of this one is a draw. No team has scored fewer goals from set pieces than Swansea, so they haven’t even got that direct route to count on, which is a great way to get at the United defence. United have conceded a league high 46% of goals through set pieces. So Swansea may struggle to get anything on the board here and could tempt punters to back United to win to nil.

After losing six and winning none of their first eight league visits to Swansea, Man Utd have won two and lost none of the last three at the Liberty. They hadn’t lost any (W5 D1) of their six previous Premier League fixtures against Swansea before their home loss against the Welsh outfit on the opening day of the season. Robin van Persie has scored three goals in three Premier League appearances at Liberty Stadium and is an even money quote in the anytime goalscorer market, while Wayne Rooney is 9/4. Remarkably though, Rooney hasn’t has a shot on target in the six league games he has played in 2015. Still, looks more likely to sore than Radamel Falcao who is looking more and more like a bust with every appearance.

Swansea v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man Utd even money, Draw 12/5, Swansea 3/1

Swansea v Manchester United Predictions

The Red Devils have lost just one of their last 15 Premier League matches (W10 D4 L1). In that 15 game run, they have picked up more points than any other team in the top flight. That’s good enough to back them in the outright market at Boylesports to take a win at the Liberty on Saturday.

Manchester City

Manchester City v Newcastle Betting Preview

With title rivals Chelsea having an easy-looking home fixture against Burnley on the weekend, City need to gun hard for three home points themselves to keep them in the title race. They certainly can’t afford a repeat of their loss at the Etihad against the Magpies in the Capital One Cup back in October.

Online bookmaker Boylesports have a fantastic first goalscorer promotion running where you can double your odds on the market. If your first goalscorer selection in the game nets the opener inside the first twenty minutes of kick off, then you will be paid out at double your original odds by Boylesports, who also offer up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Manchester City v Newcastle Betting Tips

City really need to start stepping things up if they are going to dig away at Chelsea’s seven point lead over them. All the Citizens can do is keep going and with a 4-1 win away at Stoke last time out, they breathed a sigh of relief as that snapped a five match winless streak in the Premier League that they had put up, the reason why their title challenge has fallen away. For such a strong home side, City have only one won of their last four home matches at the Etihad (W1 D2 L1) and they could only muster up a 1-1 draw there against Hull in their last home fixture. Incidentally, three of City’s last five results in the top flight have ended in a 1-1 draw which is a 9/1 option in the correct score market.

City do have the firepower in their ranks of course and Sergio Aguero is 11/4 favourite in the First Goalscorer market, followed by Wilfried Bony at 3/1. Aguero has scored in four of his six league appearances against Newcastle. City really will be welcoming Yaya Toure back after his Africa Cup of Nations duties, as they have won just one of seven league matches without him this season. Toure has a good scoring record against Newcastle as well, netting five in his last six Premier League appearances against the Magpies.

City have scored a league high 31 goals in the second half of matches this season, while Newcastle have the individual high of 71% of their goals coming in the second half of matches. Could be a tempter to go for a draw/Man City half time/full time wager therefore. Newcastle aren’t performing at the level to beat City at the moment, with the Citizens unbeaten in their last 16 league matches against Newcastle, the Magpies won’t be backed heavily to come away with three points.

The Magpies are struggling to pick up wins as well at the moment, having taken just one in their last seven league outings (W1 D3 L2. They have drawn their last two, and another possible hint towards a 1-1 correct score is that their last two league matches have finished by that scoreline. The Magpies have been poor on the road lately, losing four and winning one of their last seven away from home. They haven’t scored in any of their last four games against City either in the top flight. A positive for them though is that Papiss Cisse has the best minutes per goal rate of any player in the Premier League and is a 3/1 anytime goalscorer option.

Manchester City v Newcastle Betting Odds

Manchester City 2/7, Draw 9/2, Newcastle 17/2

Manchester City v Newcastle Predictions

It should be a City home win and worth pushing them to win to nil as well, because Newcastle aren’t clicking as an offensive unit at the moment. City really need to find that extra gear again and with the return of Toure and their win over Stoke last week, and having beaten Newcastle 4-0 in their last two league home games against them, City should take it.

The big golf betting action this week comes from the Northern Trust Open on the PGA Tour. There’s a great competitive clutch of players at the head of the market, with Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth all teeing off this week’s golf betting at a price of 12/1 with online betting site Boylesports.

Online betting site Boylesports have a great golf betting promotion running for your golf betting. Back any selection in the outright winner market at the Northern Trust and if your selection finishes second or third, then they will refund your lost stake as a free bet for you.

What’s to come next this year in golf? It’s already been a fantastic start to the year, with Rory McIlroy in winning form and Tiger Woods walking away from the game. Will Bubba Watson be able to defend his title at the Riviera Country Club this week? Watson carded a stunning bogey free 7-under rounds on both days of last year’s action.

Jimmy Walker also looks a great proposition this week, and the FedEx Cup points leader is back at one of his favourite courses. He should be a solid lock for a top twenty finish this week, so too Bill Haas who won here back in 2012, defeating Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley in a play off.

Northern Trust Open Golf Odds

Bubba Watson 12/1, Dustin Johnson 12.1 ,Jordan Spieth 12/1, Jimmy Walker 16/1, Brandt Snedeker 22/1, Hideki Matsuyama 25/1, Bill Haas 30/1, Sergio Garcia 30/1, bar 33/1

Champions League

Chelsea v Paris St Germain Betting Preview

After meeting in last year’s quarter finals, with Chelsea winning through that to Eden Hazard’s away goal in the first leg, another battle between England and France is on the cards again. The first leg on Tuesday night is out in Paris, with the bookmakers having a hard time splitting the two sides. Will this season’s clash be as dramatic as last term’s?

All Champions League matches this season involving English teams are subject to online bookmaker Boylesports’ First Goalscorer bonus. Select the winning first goalscorer in a match and that player opens the scoring in the first 20 minutes of the game, then you will be paid out double your original odds. New customers registering an account can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Chelsea v Paris St Germain Betting Tips

Jose Mourinho’s men have to look for a much improved performance as they head back to Paris on Tuesday night. They lost 3-1 there in last season’s UEFA Champions League quarter final, with Eden Hazard getting what proved to be a vital away goal. With Chelsea winning the second leg 2-0 back at the Bridge, Chelsea moved through thanks to Hazard’s away goal. Chelsea don’t have a good record out in France at all, having won just one of six previous matches played on French soil. That lone win was a 3-0 win over PSG in the 2004 Champions League. Chelsea won their group this season, picking up away wins over Sporting and Schalke, while being held to a draw at Maribor.

Last year’s meeting was dramatic and thrilling between the two. There is enough firepower around to expect the game to go over 2.5 goals, worth considering at online bookmaker Boylesports. Chelsea are 4/9 favourites at Boylesports to qualify from the tie, as they too to hit the quarterfinals of the competition for the fourth time in five years. Not the easiest of games facing them in the first leg, but they are a strong defensive outfit and you wouldn’t expect them to do much else than try and catch PSG on the counter attack. A ‘no’ option on the both teams to score market is worth considering, as three of the previous four meetings have seen a clean sheet.

Away from Stamford Bridge this season, Chelsea have had some wobbles on their march towards the Premier League title. They will be tested by a side who are unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions. PSG will be no pushovers again, and the Parisians won all three of their home matches in the group stage. They actually opened with a 3-2 win over Barcelona in this season’s campaign, and then went on to record a 1-0 win over Apoel Nicosia 1-0 and 31- victory over Ajax 3-1. So very solid at home, and they are eyeing up their third consecutive quarter final place in the tournament, and thumped Bayer Leverkusen 6-1 on aggregate at this stage last season.

While Chelsea’s record in France isn’t brilliant, PSG don’t have a great record overall against English sides. They have posted a W2 D3 L4 record in their nine previous games against English opposition, and both of those victories came on home soil. PSG’s home form against English sides reads W2 D1 L1. Chelsea have put up an overall record of W5 D3 L4 against French opposition, with only the  one win on French soil in a W1 D1 L4 record. Big options in the anytime goalscorer market for the game, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic even money favourite, with Diego Costa 6/5, Edinson Cavani 9/5 and Eden Hazard at 11/5.

Chelsea v Paris St Germain Betting Odds

Chelsea 17/10, PSG 17/10, Draw 11/5

Chelsea v Paris St Germain Predictions

Tough to split these two, especially after what happened between them last season. PSG are a very solid, tough home side and Chelsea will likely try and counter attack them. Strong probability of goals though and won’t be too surprised if this one plays out as draw.

16th February 2015 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Champions League


Midweek action in the Premier League returned a huge profit for one lucky punter at bookmaker Boylesports. The punter, from Co Meath, had played a €5 acca, built from four correct score predictions as follows

Manchester United to beat Burnley 3-1 at 10/1

Crystal Palace and Newcastle to finish 1-1 at 5/1

Chelsea to beat Everton 1-0 at 11/2

Southampton and West Ham to finish 0-0 at 8/1

It’s hard enough landing one correct score wager, so to land four in an acca saw the punter defy some massive odds of 3861/1 with the bold bet.

Pr Executive at BoyleSports Aoife Heffron said: “Accumulators can be a cruel game with one team generally letting you down but not for this lucky Meath customer who netted a very tasty €19,305 a for just a €5 bet. It just goes to show that small bets can reap substantial rewards.”

BoyleSports have admitted that they have to hand it to the punter.

Ms Heffron added: “Boylesports hold their hands up in defeat and wishes to congratulate the punter on their intelligent picks and fantastic win.

“We wish them all the best when enjoying their winnings.”
