There was a bit of a slap in the face for Manchester City upon the appointment of their new manager Manuel Pellegrini. The 59 year old Chilean takes over the leadership role at the Etihad, replacing Roberto Mancini who got the boot from the Premier League club in May. Pellegrini is known for his tactical prowess and analytical thinking. He should bring a lot of composed balance to Manchester City, and the English side will be hoping that the Chilean can guide them to Champions League success.
Pellegrini is known as The Engineer, revitalising Spanish side Malaga, who spent heavily, and then guiding them tremendously through their financial downfall, where they had to sell off their best players. That still didn’t stop Malaga reaching the quarter finals of the Champions League last term. That is the kind of inspiration that City will be hoping that Pellegrini brings with him. So will the former Real Madrid man be the right fit at the Etihad?
However, online bookmaker Ladbrokes were quick to present odds of 4/1 to not last the season at the Etihad. Even though Pellegrini was only hired on Friday, the online betting site were also quick to post odds of 4/5 to lose his job before either Manchester United new boss David Moyes and new Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.
So with all three of the big guns in the Premier League having new managers, Pellegrini was being offered at 4/5 to be ousted first, ahead of Mourinho at 2-1 and Moyes at 4/1. There was little movement in the Premier League Outright winner market on the announcement of Pellegrini’s arrival, with Manchester United still favourites at odds of 9/4 favourites, with Chelsea and City behind at 12/5.
But there was at least some positives at online bookmaker Ladbrokes for Manchester City. The bookie was offering odds of 4/5 for City to win a trophy next season. After failures in the Champions League before, City are trading at 3/1 to go out in the group stages for the third consecutive season.

Newly crowned champions of Europe, Bayern Munich could well be in a position to dominate for a long time. After a late goal from Arjen Robben in the final of the 2012/13 Champions League at Wembley Stadium in London, handed the German giants their fifth European Cup title, the bookmakers have already installed them as favourites to take next year’s title alongside Barcelona.
Not only does incoming boss Pep Guardiola have a tremendously fit and technically brilliant squad to call upon, it is a squad which will be boosted by the addition of Mario Goetze and potentially Robert Lewandowski next season. Frighteningly the Bayern Munich squad could be getting even stronger still and with such strong foundations laid down by the out-going Jupp Heynckes with Pep Guardiola’s managerial prowess, Munich could stay on top of Europe for some time.
2013/14 Champions League Betting Odds at online bookmaker Bet365
Bayern Munich 4/1, Barcelona 4/1, Real Madrid 11/2, Manchester City 10/1, Manchester United 10/1, Chelsea 12/1, Paris Saint Germain 18/1, Juventus 18/1, Borussia Dortmund 22/1, Arsenal 25/1
But Barcelona have already made a massive summer signing, agreeing on a deal to bring Brazilian superstar Neymar, who had before said that he wasn’t interested in leaving South America, to the Nou Camp. What an addition that will be for Barca, who were sorely lacking a world class striker to add to their fire power, especially in the Champions League semi finals when Lionel Messi wasn’t fit and they get overpowered 7-0 on aggregate by Bayern Munich. The capture of Neymar has been a massive statement of intent from the Spanish giants, keeping them trading as joint favourites at 4/1 in 2013/14 Champions League betting odds at online bookmaker Bet365.
Real Madrid, with Jose Mourinho no longer in charge, don’t look to be suffering too much in the betting market for next season’s Champions League, being offered at 11/2. The Spaniards still have a high quality squad of course and a bit of tinkering from whoever the new manager will be, could get them close to the title, after failing in the semi finals for the last two season. The Merengues join Bayern Munich and Real Madrid as pretty much the power trio in Champions League betting for next term.
That is clearly highlighted by the fact that English trio Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are all well out in the running all in double figures to get their hands on the title. Throw into the mix the extended offs of the likes of Paris Saint Germain and Juventus, then the Champions League next season could well be a three horse race. But the arrival of Borussia Dortmund in the 2012/13 final was a surprise for a lot of people. Who could join the big three next term in the semi finals?
There is always tremendous football betting insurance to take at online bookmaker Bet365 for all games listed in their sportsbook.

It apparently, if news reports are all correct, doesn’t take too much to get Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini angry. So furious was he after his side slumped to a recent 3-1 defeat at St Marys against Southampton, pretty much handing the Premier League title to rivals Manchester United, that he refused to go into the dressing room afterwards. So now there is reason for Mancini to be very angry if he takes a quick look at online bookmaker Skybet in the Next Premier League Manager To Go market, as it is he who is the man favoured next to go this season. There could be justifiable reasons for him to do so as well. The performances of the reigning champions have all been a bit flat and they haven’t captured any of their swagger from their title winning season.
An early exit from the Champions League, with failure to even take the consolation prize of a place in the Europa League, was a bitter blow for them. So their European adventures have ended and so have, more likely than not, their hopes of retaining the Premier league title. Their only hope remains in the FA Cup at the moment to get some silverware on the board, but will even that at the end of the season be enough for the City board to keep their faith in Mancini? Some poor signings, like Javi Garcia have really failed to push City on to the next level, indeed they look as if they have slipped back a little from last season. Of course the big lure of the Champions League, not just entering it, but winning it is what could influence whether Mancini stays or not. He simply hasn’t produced in Europe.
Roberto Mancini is now 5/2 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to get the sack this season. That is actually the same price as no 4th manager to leave, after the Premier League lost Mark Hughes, Roberto Di Matteo and Nigel Adkins this term. There really is not anyone else in the hunt, with interim Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez the next serious option behind the italian at 9/1. But in the mix also, and someone that in general the bookies are a bit split over, is West Ham’s Sam Allardyce. Big Sam has been told to secure Premier League survival before thinking about signing a new contract. So there is pressure on him, and bookies have reacted by trimming the odds on him being the next to go.
But realistically, it could be a matter of Roberto Mancini or no-one for the rest of the season, with just around a dozen games or so to go. The relegation threatened teams are unlikely to make changes at this point of the season, and Chelsea will probably ride out what they have got until the summer. The chasers of European spots are unlikely to rock the boat too much either, so that really does leave Mancini in the firing line.
Next Manager To Go Betting Market at online bookmaker Skybet
No 4th manager to leave 5/2, Roberto Mancini 5/2, Sam Allardyce 4/1, Rafael Benitez 9/1, Paul Lambert 12/1, Roberto Martinez 16/1, Martin Jol 33/1

Premier League Betting
Does the destination of the Premier League title look done and dusted? Manchester United are sitting top of the Christmas table, four points clear of defending champions Manchester City. Since climbing to the top of the table, the Red Devils have been strong favourites to go on and reclaim their title. Online bookmaker Bet365 have the Red Devils installed as 8/15 favourites at the moment to go on and take the title. However, there is of course great history linked between the team top of the table at Christmas and the eventual league winners. This is because the season is half done and anyone holding an advantage at this point is naturally a strong front runner.
Find the latest results, League Table, Top Scorer and more on our football statistics on online-betting.me.uk (just choose your country & your preferred topic)
But what does history say? What are the stats surrounding Christmas leaders? The team who have been sitting top of the league at Christmas has gone on to win the league the same season just nine times out of 20 seasons. So that is less than a 50% shot on United winning the 2012/13 Premier League. It means that the above listed price on the Red Devils is not tremendous value at all.
United’s strike rate
In Premier League history, United have been the Christmas leaders six times and have converted four of those occasions into league titles. Manchester City did it last season in a last gasp effort from Sergio Aguero, taking the title after being Christmas number one. That was the third season in a row that the Christmas leaders had taken the title. Will there be a fourth this term? The thing in United’s favour is that they are generally specialists when it comes to the busy month of December. Not including this season United have won 19 of 25 matches played in the Premier League during the month of December since the 2007/08 season. Only Arsenal can match United’s points haul of December points (59pts). Another thing about United’s festive history is that they have won seventeen and lost just one of their last 20 Boxing Day fixtures (winning the last eight in a row). Christmas consistency could get United out of sight come the New Year.
City the only side to mount a challenge?
So while the odds are short on the Red Devils converting, is it worth looking at value beyond Manchester United? Of course. In the final round of matches before Christmas, Man City cut a six point deficit down to just four as they secured a late three points against a resilient Reading, and United were held to a draw by Swansea. Manchester City are trading at good value of 2/1 with online bookmaker Bet365 in Premier League outright winner odds. This does represent value as the Citizens have shown tremendous resilience this season, pulling points out of the bag. There is still room for improvement though and they could push off on a very good run. They have it in them. They simply are value because they are highly likely to be the only other side in with a shot at the title come the end of the season. City have won 13 of 27 fixtures in December since the 2007/08 season and have won four and drawn one of their last five Boxing Day fixtures.
Long shots Chelsea and beyond
Falling further back out in the Premier League winner odds are Chelsea who are at long odds of 12/1 with online bookmaker Bet365. Rafa Benitez’s men really don’t look that much of a threat to muscle their way into the Manchester monopoly. All three of Chelsea’s league titles have come when they have been leading at Christmas, and with them being eleven points off the lead despite being in third place this time around, a Chelsea renaissance looks highly unlikely. That is about the sum of all your Premier League outright winner betting odds really, with the challenges of Arsenal, Everton and Spurs ranging out from 66/1 to 200/1.
Boxing Day Stats
Man United: Have won eight in a row now, losing just one of their last twenty,winning seventeen of them
Man City: Have taken four wins and a draw from their last five PRemier League Boxing Day fixtures
Chelsea: Have taken three wins and four draws of their last seven Boxing Day matches. They have drawn the last four in a row
Premier League Outright winner odds at online bookmaker Bet365
Man United 8/15, Man City 2/1, Chelsea 12/1, Arsenal 66/1, Tottenham 175/1, Everton 200/1, Liverpool 60/1

Premier League Champions Manchester City swing into more pre-season action on Tuesday, with an away match against German opposition. The match is being played at the Tivoli Neu Stadium in Austria. The premier League title holders square off against Dynamo Dresden, as they look to start sharpening their claws ahead of the defence of their title. Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini signed a new deal with the club after guiding them to their first league success in 44 years, but the critics are already warning City that the defence of their title could be harder than than winning it. City will of course also get another crack at the Champions League after failing to make it past the group stage in their first venture in the competition last season. They should be a bigger force to be reckoned with and they have been linked with big summer transfer targets like Arsenal’s Robin van Persie. Manchester City lost their first pre-season friendly, as they went down 1-0 away against Saudi Arabian side Al Hilal in Austria.
Naturally there are no panic buttons to be pressed yet after the defeat, but there were a crop of senior players in attendance for the match. Carlos Tevez took part after his announcement that he was totally settled at Manchester City, while striker Mario Jelavic, on trial with City got a run out in the second half of the game. So no-one is quite sure just yet, what the final City squad will be when it comes to the start of the Premier League. There are still major transfer rumours circling about Tevez leaving the club, along with Edin Dzeko who are both apparently being targeted by AC Milan as replacements for the departing Zlatan Ibrahimovic. So the building continues for Manchester City with a match against Dynamo Dresden on Tuesday.
Dynamo Dresden are in the second tier of German football, finishing in mid-table there last season with a decent goals haul, but with a terrible defence. So the pre-season is all about getting match fit more than anything, but we should see Man City turning up the pace a little bit, because they were extremely lack-lustre going forward against Al Hilal.

Man City 2/9, Draw 22/5, Dynamo Dresden 8/1

One of the best football bets of the Premier League season, would have been backing Manchester City while they were 2-1 down in their final match of the season against QPR. This is the beauty of live in play betting summed up in big numbers. Punters who went and got money down on a dramatic City comeback, reportedly cost Ladbrokes over £4 million in payouts. Bookmakers are now dubbing Sergio Aguero’s 95th minute winner, the goal which clinched not only three points but the Premier League title, as the most expensive goal in Premier League history.
William Hill and Coral also stated huge losses because of Aguero’s late show, with William Hill, saying that they were hurt by losses amounting to “seven figures”. Around the 90 minute mark on Sunday, with City losing and United ahead at Sunderland, Ladbrokes offered City at 12/1 to win the Premier League title. Naturally optimistic punters jumped on that, and bookies were left reeling when Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero got those late, late goals. Further to that, before kick off, Ladbrokes have offered 2,500/1 that City would score two injury time goals. Any punter who had a crack at that will have been jumping for joy.
Just to paint a bigger picture here, the cost of Aguero’s goal went a lot deeper than title odds and match odds. City would have been heavily backed in accumulators which would have been losing until that 95th minute spectacular and accumulators pay out big for small stakes. So that would have hurt bookmakers a lot. Ladbrokes took well over 1,500 in play bets with the title odds changing so much during the final 90 minutes of action. They couldn’t have predicted the dramatic late burst at the Etihad Stadium.
Online bookmaker BetFred had already lost a fortune when they prematurely paid out on Manchester United winning the title when they were eight points clear in April. So the bookie lost again in the dramatic last five minutes at the Etihad Stadium. While City fans were cheering a new dawn in Manchester, it was certainly the bookies who were really left feeling blue.

Manchester City are blessed with an incredible array of forward talent, from Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Edin Dzeko to Mario Balotelli. Therefore, BetFred’s Hattrick Heaven promotion could well be worth a look at in your Manchester City v QPR First Goalscorer betting. Back a successful First Goalscorer in the match, and if that player goes on to score a second at any time, then you will get double your original odds. If that successful First Goalscorer goes on to score a hattrick, then BetFred will pay out the bet to treble the original odds! Tremendous value with Aguero and Tevez going off at 2/1 in the market. Popular online bookmaker BetFred offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account. The bookie will match the value of your first stake on a new account with a free bet.
Manchester City v QPR Odds at BetFred
Man City 1/7, Draw 8/1, QPR 18/1
Well, there are big connotations about this match, both at the top and the bottom of the league. The primary focus on this match has been all about Manchester City, and whether or not they can finish off their second chance to win the Premier League. The destiny of Roberto Mancini’s men is in their own hands, as they simply need to win here and they will be lifting the title, regardless of what Manchester United do. While the Citizens go into the match level on points with United, they have a superior goal difference of eight, which is unlikely to be overturned. To their huge credit, after looking out of the title, City have strung together a fantastic run of form, taking out both Manchester United and Newcastle in back to back game. They may just have the winning mentality after all, and the triumph away at Newcastle was perhaps the turning point. It came straight after beating Manchester United for a second time this season, and with City’s shaky away form and against a high flying Magpies, City turned in a professional performance, proving that their heads are in the right place.
City have gotten back to their best since a defeat against Arsenal on April 8th. That was the match when it all seemed to have gotten away from them. However, with five straight wins on the bounce, City have capitalised on an unfamiliar choke from the Red Devils. City have rattled off fifteen goals and have conceded just one in their last five matches. They have hit their stride again after a sticky patch, and Mancini has made tactical decisions which has won him crucial matches, like bringing on Nigel de Jong and pushing Yaya Toure forward against Newcastle. That was the game-breaking change in a match City had to win. So now, they host QPR to win the Premier League title. It was 44 years when City last won the league (back in 1968) and the runners up then were Manchester United. Back in November, City squeezed out a 3-2 win away at Loftus Road against QPR, the hero on the day then? Yaya Toure, popping up with the winner. You have to feel that City will pull out the stops here to get the title wrapped up. It is not as if they have been jittery at home or anything, winning seventeen, drawing one and losing none. Fifty two goals they have amassed at home, averaging 2.9 goals per game, and conceding 0.55 on home soil. City haven’t conceded a goal in the first fifteen minutes of any matches this season, just one in the first half hour of a match. That is strong start, the foundation upon which they have built so many wins.

But Premier League survival is what is at stake for Mark Hughes and his visiting QPR. A point will be enough to keep them in the division next season, as they start two points ahead of 18th placed Bolton (but QPR have a superior goal difference which won’t be overhauled by the Trotters). So can QPR get the point they need, and throw a lifeline back to Manchester United in the title race? A defeat at the Etihad Stadium would leave the R’s open to relegation. They will be heavy underdogs of course, not only because of City’s home record, but because of their own away form. Rangers have only won three matches away from home this season and are without a win in 12 on the road. They have done marvellously at Loftus Road during the run in, rattling off five straight wins including victories of Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs to keep their survival hopes high. But mixed in between all that, has been away defeat after away defeat. Rangers have lost the last six away matches in a row now, and that is where they are hurting. They will battle to the end, in the hopes of causing one final twist, but City should have the desire, creativity and technical ability to overpower them.
Man City v QPR Prediction: We are playing stats here, City have a league leading 52 points at home this season, QPR have the league’s worst tally of just 11 eleven away points this season. Simple maths, City should win this and win well. But it is probably going to be a little nervy given what is at stake. Therefore, a conservative Man City 2 Goal Winning Margin for 3/1 looks good at Bet365.
