Premier League Betting

Manchester City v Leicester Betting Preview

The Citizens are still wobbling and their defeat against Liverpool on the weekend has probably cost them a title now, trailing leaders Chelsea by five points and having played a game more than the Blues. But as they host bottom side Leicester on Wednesday night at the Etihad, it should be a good chance for Manuel Pellegrini’s men to bag a much needed three points regardless.

There is superb football betting coverage to enjoy at online betting site Unibet. They will refund losing correct score, half time/full time, first goalscorer and last goalscorer bets on every Premier League match where a goal is scored after the 90th minute. The maximum free bet refund from the great Unibet offer is £75.

Manchester City v Leicester Betting Tips

The Citizens have suffered a rough week or so. Their home defeat against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League has left them with a massively difficult task to make it through to the quarter finals there, and a Premier League defeat at Anfield on the weekend was costly. They are now five points adrift of leaders Chelsea, but having handed a game in hand to the Blues. Manuel Pellegrini’s men have managed just the six clean sheets in their last 18 Premier League home matches. What is even more shocking is their overall form, as they have won just two of their last seven in the top flight (W2 D3 L2).

They have been looking fragile, but they still go as favourites of course at home against the bottom side in the Premier League. Sergio Aguero has been involved in five goals (three goals, two assists) in Man City’s last three Premier League games and he is trading at a quote of 4/7 in the anytime goalscorer market for the game with online bookmaker Unibet. Manchester City’s usually strong form at the Etihad has been slipping too, with just a W2 D2 L1 record in their last five there in the top flight. A lack of energy and a lack of imagination has been their downfall. But, in their title defence, there is a run of games against Leicester, Burnley, West Brom and Crystal Palace coming up in their next four league matches. So have the chance to find their feet again.

So City have to get themselves going on Wednesday night, and they should against the Foxes who have lost 15 of their last 21 Premier League matches, winning only two (D4). This season Leicester have managed four clean sheets than any other team in the Premier League this season (4). Leicester scrapped their way to a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park against Everton in their last match (which was back on February 22nd) and it is still hard to see them getting anything out of this one, even though the Foxes have won all three Premier League away games against the Citizens, keeping three clean sheets in the process. They have managed just a W2 D2 L10 on the road this season and are winless in their last three away from the King Power. Not enough to suggest that they will pull off their fourth Premier League win at City.

Manchester City v Leicester Betting Odds

Man City 1/4, Draw 6/1, Leicester 12/1

Manchester City v Leicester Predictions

The Foxes are just conceding at the moment and even though City have looked a bit limp, they just need someone like David Silva or Sergio Aguero to produce a moment of magic to land a win in the fixture. They should find a way through a porous Foxes defence.

Huge Premier League clash at Anfield on Sunday, as defending champions Manchester City will be hoping to pick up three points to put some pressure on leaders Chelsea. The Citizens could move to back within just two points of Jose Mourinho’s men if they take a win at Liverpool on Sunday and they are going into the game as favourites.

City have been a solid away side  lately, having gone eight unbeaten away from the Etihad with a W5 D3 record. That should be good enough to stand up at Anfield, where Liverpool have won just the six league matches all season. The Reds though are unbeaten in their last ten Premier League matches, so are showing some resiliency.

Manchester City have the big aces up in their sleeve in the likes of David Silva and Sergio Aguero, and they have far more proven attacking options than Liverpool have at the moment. The Citizens scored three goals from from shot on target in a 3-1 win over the Reds earlier in the season. Can they bag another three points to keep themselves in the hunt to retain their title?

City are running at a quote of 13/10 to take the win, going against the 2/1 mark on Liverpool. However, new customers registering an account with Ladbrokes can take advantage of a massive enhanced odds offer.

Henderson (Liverpool)

Liverpool v Manchester City Betting Preview

Big game for both of these. The Reds need points for a top four finish, while City have the chance to close within two points of leaders Chelsea over the weekend. It is City with the head to head form in recent meetings between the two sides, and the Citizens will be keen to heap some pressure onto Jose Mourinho.

There is great coverage for your Liverpool v Man City betting at Unibet.

Liverpool v Manchester City Betting Tips

Liverpool may well come to rue the extra time that they had to play on Thursday night. Liverpool had to go all the way to a penalty shootout in Istanbul in their Europa League tie against Besiktas, the Premier League outfit losing on spot kicks. They don’t need any further disadvantages because they have only won two of the last 12 Premier League matches against Man City as it is (W2 D6 L4). However, Brendan Rodgers has steered the Reds to a solid run of unbeaten form in the top flight, unbeaten in their last ten (W7 D3); the best record of any side over the last 10 games. They are also unbeaten in their last seven at Anfield (W4 D3). But in total they have only managed to win six of 13 home matches in the top flight this season.

Liverpool were hammered at the Etihad earlier in the season, completely outplayed with City scoring three goals from their four shots on target in the game. Liverpool have gotten much better the longer the season has gone on though but they do still look as if they need some help up top. Raheem Sterling and Steven Gerrard are joint top scorers for them in the league this season with six each and that’s it. Daniel Sturridge is running as 7/4 shortest priced option in the anytime goalscorer market for Liverpool. Liverpool have conceded two or more goals in each of their last six Premier League matches against the Citizens. Has to then be worth looking over 2.5 goals for a price of 8/11 with online bookmaker Unibet.

With Chelsea playing the League Cup final on Sunday, Manchester City can close the gap on them to just two points. Big, big chance to put some pressure on the Blues. Manchester City are carrying some defensive weaknesses at the moment, none bigger than Vincent Kompany. The Citizens have just the one clean sheet in their last nine Premier League matches surprisingly. City are going as favourites for the win here, but they have won none of their last 11 Premier League trips to Anfield (W0 D4 L7). However, Manuel Pellegrini’s men should be good for a draw at least, as they have lost just one away game all season in the league.

City have posted a W5 D3 record in their last eight away games which is very strong, and they are starting to fire again, with Yaya Toure back and Sergio Aguero scoring again. Sergio Aguero is 5/4 top option in the anytime goalscorer market, followed by Wilfried Bony and Edin Dzeko at 2/1. Arsenal are the only side in 23 matches that the Citizens have played in the Premier League this season, to have stopped City from scoring. So you expect something to happen for them going forward, and they have netted exactly two goals in each of their last three visits to Anfield, two of those games finishing in a 2-2 draw, which is a 12/1 Correct score option with online bookmaker Unibet.

Liverpool v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 6/4, Draw 5/2, Liverpool 2/1

Liverpool v Manchester City Predictions

The Reds just haven’t done enough at home this season to suggest that they are going to roll out a win over the Citizens. Manchester City are in decent form on the road and have a good scoring streak going against the Reds. Would back a City Draw No Bet for around the 3/4 mark for a bit of coverage.

For the second season running, Manchester City have a round of sixteen tie in the UEFA Champions League against Barcelona. So the Citizens pay the price heavily for not having won their group,  but the fact that having gone winless in their first four group matches, the fact that they made it to the knockout stage was remarkable.

Wins over Bayern Munich and Roma saw City turn things around and now they get another crack at Barcelona, in what is just their second appearance in the knockout stage of the Champions League. In last year’s round of sixteen they had to take on the Catalans also, and the Citizens lost out 4-1 on aggregate, suffering a 2-0 loss at home.

Can Manchester City turn the tables this time around and produce a different outcome to what happened last season? Tough of course, but Sergio Aguero is in great scoring form in the competition and the Premier League outfit will need him at his best, as their defence could struggle under the pressure of Lionel messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.

There is a huge enhanced odds offer running for man City v Barcelona betting at online bookmaker Ladbrokes as you can back Man City at 10/1 or Barcelona at 6/1 to take a win.

This tremendous Ladbrokes enhanced odds promotion is open to new customers only.

This is a repeat of the clash from a year ago when City ran into Barcelona in the Champions League round of sixteen. Manuel Pellegrini’s men will be hoping for a much better outcome though this time around, after losing 4-1 on aggregate against her Catalans last term. City lost 2-0 at home and 2-1 at the Nou Camp, in what was their first ever taste of Champions League knockout football.

Now, in their second foray past the group stage, they have been put on a collision course with Barcelona again. The Catalans scored fifteen goals in their six group stage matches, and with Lionel Messi having scored eight and assisted two of them, he will be the big danger man with support coming in from Luis Suarez and Neymar. Not a bad front line. Will they be able to damage a City back line which has kept just one clean sheet in their last eleven games in all competitions?

Champions League

Manchester City v Barcelona Betting Preview

A repeat of last season’s round of sixteen tie, but the Citizens won’t be hoping for a repeat of the outcome as they crashed out 4-1 on aggregate against the Catalans. Huge night for City as the enter into what is just their second appearance at this stage of the competition so far. Will the weight of Barcelona’s experience and expertise be the telling factor again?

Manchester City v Barcelona Betting Tips

Can Manchester City get a bit closer to Barcelona than they managed to do at this point last season? City lost 2-0 at home and 2-1 at the Nou Camp. If you want to look at a positive for City, they are on a winning streak in the competition, having won their last two Champions League matches, having taken wins over Bayern Munich and Roma. Those wins saw Manuel Pellegrini’s men squeeze through to the knockouts for just the second time in their history, just when things had looked doomed for them. Those wins though did come after failing to win any of their previous six games in the competition.

Manchester city are likely to concede. They have posted just one clean sheet in their last 11 games in all competitions, and they have managed just one clean sheet in their last 13 home fixtures in the Champions League. That should send you over to Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Goals as serious options to consider. City’s last gasp win over Bayern Munich at the Etihad on Match Day Five was just their third home win in ten European home matches. Sergio Aguero has scored in both of his last two home fixtures against La Liga opposition ,and he has scored 10 goals in his last 9 Champions League outings. Aguero is running at 7/5 in the anytime goalscorer market.

But City will take on a Barcelona, with the Spaniards in good form. They have won their last four UEFA Champions League matches and they have good history going against English sides in the competition. Of the last seven Champions League knockout fixtures against English sides, Barcelona have won through on six of them. They have a tremendous strike force of course and have netted 15 goals in their six match so far, and 14 of those came from open play. Lionel Messi is even money favourites in the anytime goalscorer market, with Neymar and Luis Suarez both at 7/5 with online bookmaker Paddy Power.

Lionel Messi has fired in eight goals and has assisted two others in Barcelona’s 15 goal tally so far in this season’s Champions League. He is on a five match scoring streak in the tournament as well, never having made it six in a row. Barcelona have completed an impressive 90% of their Champions League passes this term and in each of their last 92 matches in the competition, they have been the ones who have dominated possession. However, their slight blip is their away form. They have only managed to win one of their last seven away matches in the knockout stage of the tournament (D2 L4), but that was against Manchester City in February 2014.

Manchester City v Barcelona Betting Odds

Barcelona 23/20, Man City 5/2, Draw 13/5

Manchester City v Barcelona Predictions

The Citizens haven’t looked strong enough lately to really repel the Catalans. Barcelona slipped up at home in La Liga on the weekend, but their overall form remains strong and they have goals and options up front in them. Expect both teams to score in the game, but Barcelona still look the more likely to come away with a first leg advantage. They are a little bit of a different beast this time, a little more direct in getting forward, and that should trouble City’s defence.

Bet Victor

Have Chelsea done all the groundwork to push on and lift the Premier League title this season? Will there be any more twists and turns? Man City pulled level with them at one point, but the Blues have since re-established supremacy by opening up an seven point lead.

Both have somewhat comfortable-looking home matches facing them on the weekend. League leaders Chelsea are heavy 1/5 odds on favourites to continue their 100% Premier League record against the relegation-threaten Burnley. With the return to fitness of Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa returning from suspension, it will be a shock if the Blues don’t turn up three points.

Manchester City meanwhile host Newcastle, and the Citizens are undefeated in their last 16 Premier League match ups against the Magpies, and so will be favourites for the clash at the Etihad. City have won just one of their last four at home in the top flight, but now have the influential Yaya Toure back and their confidence was lifted last time out with a 4-1 away win at Stoke, which saw them return to winning ways

New customers registering an account with Bet Victor can claim enhanced odds of both Man City and Chelsea to win at a quote of 5/1.

Open a new account with BetVictor and place your FIRST BET (maximum of £5) as a double on Chelsea & Man City both to win. 90 minute (win/draw/win) market only.If Chelsea & Man City Both Win, your account will be credited with the extra winnings within 24 hours. The enhanced odds price is 5/1.

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.
