Premier League Betting

There has been a pretty significant shift in the Premier League outright winner market heading into the international break. Four matches into the season and Manchester city have been moved into odds-on favourites to win the crown and with none of their challengers looking as if they are anywhere near the quality to stop City marching to the title, their favouritism is hardening.

Chelsea’s poor start to the season continued after a home defeat by Crystal Palace left Jose Mouinho’s men on just four points from their opening four matches. The Stamford Bridge outfit which can’t stop shipping goals have drifted all the way out to 11/2 third favourites after being odds-on to retain the title pre-season.

Arsenal have moved in a position of 6/1 second favourites, after narrowly beating Newcastle on Tyneside over the weekend, while Manchester United’s third successive 2-1 Premier League loss against Swansea has seen the colourless Red Devils go on the drift as well to a price of 14/1 with online betting site Bet365 and as long as 18/1 at Skybet.

Sunderland’s winless start to the season continued with a 2-2 draw at Aston Villa and the Black Cats sit as 8/15 favourites with Bet365 to suffer relegation. Watford, who were batted aside by Man City at the Etihad on the weekend are 6/5 second favourites to drop, with Norwich at 5/4 just beyond them. The ten-man Canaries lost 3-0 at Southampton on Sunday but have record a win this season, something Sunderland, Newcastle, Stoke, Watford and Tottenham are yet to do. Newcastle are 4/1 shots to drop.

Will Manchester City be able to extend their winning streak to the start of the season? It’s been a breeze for them so far with three wins from three and on Saturday they will be looking to win their tenth Premier League fixture in a row as they host the newly promoted Watford at the Etihad. City have lost just one of their last 18 at home in the league and go as 1/5 favourites.

Chelsea posted their first win of the season last weekend as they took the three points away from the Hawthorns against West Brom. Now they return to the Bridge, their attack looking refreshed thanks to the arrival of Pedro and they go as 1/3 favourites to win against Crystal palace on Saturday.

Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool will probably have taken the fancy of many punters as somewhat bankers in the Premier League this weekend.

Everton v Manchester City Betting Preview

Both have gotten off to positives to the new and both will be looking to defend their unbeaten starts. Everton have banked four points so far while Manchester City have taken six from six, including banking that big 3-0 win over Chelsea last weekend. Will the Citizens be able to continue their winning streak and maintain their authority over the league, or will they find the Toffees a tough nut to crack on Merseyside?

This live match falls under Betfred’s 1st Goalscorer Double or Treble odds offer. Back the correct first goalscorer in the match and if that player then goes on to score a second in the game, the bookie will pay you out double your original odds. If he scores three then that is treble your original odds for you. This also applies to West Brom v Chelsea and Arsenal v Liverpool and Man Utd v Newcastle this weekend. Great chances to try and pick up some extra profit.

Everton v Manchester City Betting Tips

The Toffees put into one of the best performances of the weekend as they rolled out a thoroughly convincing 3-0 win over Southampton at St Mary’s in the lunchtime kick-off on Saturday. They were in full control, looked dangerous on the break playing their counter-attacking football and whatever Southampton threw at them, they repelled. That was just Everton’s second clean sheet from their last 18 away games in the Premier League. The Toffees had opened with a disappointing 2-2 home draw against Watford, but after so much criticism from fans about the board not giving boss Roberto Martinez and transfer funds, the win over the Saints will have appeased them.

Romelu Lukaku was on the scoresheet twice against the Saints and he is a 9/4 anytime goalscorer quote to find the back of the net against City. Everton have only lost three of their last eighteen Premier League Home matches against Manchester City (W10 D5 L3) so they may be quietly confident about taking a point away from the game. The Toffees after all have taken six clean sheets from their last ten Premier League home fixtures and they held out to a 1-1 draw on home turf against the Citizens last term. You can have a punt on that score line being repeated for a price of 13/2 quote with online betting site Betfred. Six of the last eight top-flight clashes between these two have gone under 2.5 goals which is a 5/4 quote.

City will be out to make it three wins from three at the start of the season and keep full control of the early Premier League title race. Two 3-0 victories in the bag over West Brom and Chelsea have seen the Citizens get off to a flier and have been head and shoulders the best side so far. Sergio Aguero is off the mark for the season and he is a 3/1 First Goalscorer quote with Betfred. Manchester City are unbeaten in their last two visits to Goodison Park (W1 D1) and given the way that they have been playing, they will have plenty of backing to pick up the three points. Nothing looks as if it is going to faze them at the moment and even though they have struggled for Premier League wins at Goodison, they are more than good enough to avoid defeat.

Everton v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 13/20, Draw 3/1, Everton 15/4

Everton v Manchester City Predictions

The Citizens have looked untouchable so far at the start of the season. They don’t have a great record at Goodison Park, though, so this will be a bit of a test for them. However, when you have players like Sergio Aguero who can really make a difference, you have to run with the Citizens to pick up the victory.

Chelsea have only lost two of their last nine matches against Manchester City and they are unbeaten in their last four against the Citizens as well. On top of that, they are actually unbeaten in their last 27 league matches played on Sunday. Jose Mourinho has already won seven and lost only of his previous twelve managerial head to heads with Manuel Pellegrini.

There’s another stat that suggests Chelsea will avoid defeat on Sunday and that is the last time that Chelsea lost a league game in the month of August was back in 2006. Everyone knows what Chelsea will turn up at the Etihad and do; sit back and hope for something on the break. They will do all they can to take any sting out of the game, but can they strike a winner.

Open an account with Coral and take enhanced 10/1 odds on Chelsea to land the victory. Winnings from the offer will be paid in cash!

However, if that doesn’t appeal to you too much then there is an alternate option for you as you can take a 8/1 enhanced odds price on Man City to win. It’s your pick of enhanced odds and the Coral offer is open to new customers only registering an account with the bookmaker.

As an added bonus, if your bet loses a £20 free bet will be credited to your account within 24hrs. So open an account, make your initial deposit and you will have access to the enhanced odds. Then just place your FIRST real money bet as a single win of £5 on ‘Man City to Win 8/1’ or ‘Chelsea to Win 10/1 and sit back and see what happens!

Stan James

There will probably be some drama from the Etihad on Sunday afternoon as Manchester City take on Chelsea in the weekend’s big match. After Chelsea stuttered to a 2-2 home draw against Swansea on the opening day of the season while City banked an impressive 3-0 away win at West Brom, Sunday’s fixture at the Etihad sees a bit of pressure on Chelsea.

The Blues won’t want to lose this one and fall five points behind the Citizens even though it is so early in the season. City won’t want to lose and find themselves a point behind the Blues. So interesting stuff and a draw may not be too far from the picture given the 1-1 draws that the two sides played out last season. Chelsea will probably go and play defensively and hope for counter attacks, as is their style in big games like this under Jose Mourinho.

Stan James are offering money back as a free bet to the value of £25 on all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer and Correct Score bets if Sergio Aguero or Diego Costa scores first in the match. Aguero has netted nine Premier League goals in his last eight appearances. Impressive stuff.

Stan James also run accumulator insurance on all 5+ acca’s containing at least one Premier League selection. If just one leg of such a wager lets you down then you will be returned a free £25 bet as a consolation. Open a new account with Stan James and you can earn yourself a free £10 bet as well!

Premier League Betting

Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Preview

What a clash this should be. Chelsea will be heading to the Etihad on the back of a difficult week for the club, while Manchester City lit up the Premier League opening weekend with an awesome display of power. Huge three points up for grabs so early in the title race. City can find themselves five points clear of the Blues if they can bag themselves a home win. What will Jose Mourinho have up his sleeve?

Bet365 return with their hugely popular free £50 in play bet for Man City v Chelsea betting. Place a pre-match wager on the game and then after kick off, if your FIRST in-play bet loses, then Bet365 will refund the lost stake to the matching value of your biggest pre-match stake (up to a maximum £50 free bet refund!). Superb offer, as it is basically a risk free-in play bet! Sign up to today to take full advantage of the deal!

Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Tips

The only disappoint thing about this fixture is that it is too early in the season to be a real blockbuster in terms of the title race. Chelsea will be under pressure in this one after their 2-2 draw at home against Swansea last weekend, and will be without keeper Thibaut Courtois after his red card. The Blues are unbeaten in their last 28 Premier League matches played in the month of August and are unbeaten in their last four against Man City in the top flight (W2 D2). But they have only won just one of their last seven visits to the Etihad in all competitions, picking up a W1 D1 L5 record in that spell.

Plenty for Jose Mourinho to be thinking about in this one and it will mostly be tightening up defensively. The Blues would fall five points behind City if they lose and defensively, Chelsea have only taken one clean sheet in their last six Premier League matches. Room there for City to exploit. The last four clashes have gone under 2.5 goals though, so swing that way for a price of 4/5 with online betting site Bet365. You know Chelsea will approach from a defensive mindset. Diego Costa goes as a 2/1 anytime goalscorer mark in the game, a market in which Sergio Aguero is even money favourite at Bet365.

Aguero has returned nine goals in his last eight Premier League outings. Yaya Toure was the star of their 3-1 win over West Brom last Monday and he is a 3/1 quote to continue his scoring streak. Manchester CIty have only won two of their last nine Premier League games against Chelsea, losing four, and with both games between them ending 1-1 last season, a draw has to have some appeal. Another 1-1 Correct Score is 6/1 at Bet365. City have scored at least two goals in each of their last seven home games in the Premier League and look to be carrying far more of an attacking threat than Chelsea do.

Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Odds

Man City 11/10, Draw 5/2, Chelsea 11/4

Manchester City v Chelsea Predictions

Tough to see Chelsea winning this, given their poor record at the Etihad in recent trips. The defence of Chelsea isn’t as strong as it is perceived to be and the pace of the City attack should open them up. Shoot for a City victory in a low scoring game. They have the edge.

The game of the Premier League weekend comes from the Etihad on Sunday, where an early title showdown will go down between Man City and Chelsea. This is a huge early chance to score some bragging rights over a title rival for both of them, but more pressure will be on the reigning champions in the match.

With Chelsea stuttering to a 2-2 draw at home on the opening day of the season, while Man City looked hugely impressive in their 3-0 win at West Brom, it is the Citizens who are running as favourites for the match at Bet365 at a price of 11/10. The draw is 5/2 while Chelsea are 11/4 to pick up the away win. Both games between the two clubs ended in 1-1 draws last season.

Online betting site Bet365 have a big promotion running for the match. Place a pre-match wager on the Man City v Chelsea game and they will give you a risk-free in-play bet to the same stake to use on the match after kick off.

So just your pre-match wager down and once kick-off has happened on Sunday, then head to Bet365’s impressive in-play markets and if your FIST in-play bet loses, then Bet365 will refund the stake up to the same value as your largest pre-match bet. The maximum refund to come back from the offer is £50.

There is over 70 in-play markets to choose from after kick off in big matches at Bet365, from Next Goal, Match Goals, Half Time Result, Match Corner, Full Time Result and much more in their extensive range of live bets.

Pre-match wagers which are fully or partly cashed out won’t qualify, and if your first single in-play bet is cashed out fully or partly then you will no longer be eligible to receive the offer. If your risk-free bet loses, you will be credited within two hours of the end of the game and if you play more than one in-play bet on the same slip, the risk free bet will be deemed to be the one first on the slip. See Bet365 for full terms and conditions.

Premier League Betting

Arsenal have gone on the massive drift in the Sky Bet Premier League outright winner market. The Gunners were sunk in a shock 2-0 home defeat on Sunday against West Ham, a side who they had beaten in each of their last nine Premier League outings. It was indeed a shock result and one that took all the shine off Arsenal’s pre-season optimism.

The Gunners had been 9/2 pre-season to win the Premier League title, having received some strong backing after beating Chelsea in the Community Shield. After Chelsea had drawn their home opener against Swansea on Saturday evening, Arsenal were in to a price of 7/2.

However, Skybet decided to oppose the Gunners heavily by slapping a price of 11/2 on them to win the Premier League outright this season, the biggest prize on offer across the industry.

Sky Bet’s Chris Spicer said: “Arsenal were noticeably off the pace and while they’ll improve, giving Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and likely Manchester City an early advantage rates a disastrous way to begin the new season.

“There was real optimism pre-season, especially following the signing of Petr Cech, but his nightmare debut and Olivier Giroud’s performance are real concerns. We’re happy to lay them.”

Chelsea, who could only manage a home draw against Swansea after keeper Thibaut Courtois had been sent off, drifted to 9/4 Saturday evening, but were back into 15/8 in Premier League outright betting on Sunday. Manchester United are at 4/1, while all the major players left Liverpool untouched out at 28/1.
