West Brom v Manchester City Best Bets & Tips

Rounding off the opening weekend of the new Premier League betting season is the clash from the Hawthorns. Manchester City will already have seen what their potential rivals will have done over the weekend and will be looking to get their own campaign off to a strong start with an away win. The Citizens are trading as 4/7 favourites with Betfair for the win, with the draw at 3/1 and West Brom at 5/1.

Recent Head to Head

The form in the recent head to head meetings in West Brom v Man City betting clashes is firmly with the Citizens who have a big winning streak going over the Baggies. Manchester City have won the last seven Premier League clashes on the bounce now and are unbeaten in eleven Premier League matches against them. It’s all a bit lopsided and with West Brom being a bit stagnant in the transfer market, if it all goes to form this should be three points for the Citizens.

Both Teams To Score

There actually is a hint that both teams will get on the scoresheet in the fixture. Three of the last four meetings between the two sides have seen both sides score in the match and each of the last three meetings in the league at the Hawthorns has seen both teams get on the scoresheet too. A Both Teams To Score wager is trading at a price of 4/6 with online betting site Betfair.

Anytime Goalscorer

Well, you probably aren’t going to be looking much further than Sergio Aguero as a punter looking at this game. The Argentine is trading as 5/6 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market while expensive new signing Raheem Sterling is a 9/5 quote to find the back of the net. His fellow young England star Saido Berahino is trading at a price of 13/5 to score in the game. That’s not mentioning the likes of Wilfried Bony, David Silva, Yaya Toure and Brown Ideye and so on. Plenty of scoring options.

Over 2.5 Goals

Again looking at the stats for this one the likelihood is that the game will go over 2.5 goals without much question. Each of the last four league games have gone over the mark and you can back this one to follow suit for a price of 4/5 with Betfair. Incidentally City have scored exactly three goals in each of their last four against the Baggies and have scored at least two goals in nine of their last eleven top flight games against West Brom.

Match Outright Tip

The Baggies turned it on in patches last season, helped out by the influence of Tony Pulis. However, keeping a fresh Manchester City at bay is a tough ask for them to open with, even at home. Look for an away win to get City up and running for the season.

Betfair have a great promotion up and running or the new season. Place a £25 bet on the Premier League Top Goalscorer market and you will get a free £5 bet back for every match that your selected player scores in. This applies to all Premier League matches up until the end of October, and qualifying bets must be down on the market before the end of August.

West Brom v Manchester City Betting Preview

Manchester City haven’t been hanging around in the summer transfer market, pushing hard to get their man Raheem Sterling out of Anfield. Big capture for the Citizens who will be keen to make a better fist of a title challenge than they managed last season. They also persuaded Fabian Delph to leave Aston Villa as well and have been trying to get Paul Pogba away from Juventus. So it will be interesting to see how they line up at the start of next season, because of how Sterling will fit into the setup, if of course he gets a start.

Sergio Aguero will remain the main attraction in the goalscorer markets and Manchester City have scored freely against the Baggies in recent Premier League matches. The Citizens are 11/4-second favourites in Premier League outright winner betting, which puts them behind reigning champions, Chelsea. There is a huge game for Manchester City because on August 16th, they take on Chelsea at the Etihad in just their second game of the season. So ahead of that tough clash, they will be keen to get something on the board at the Hawthorns.

City are favourites to win the game at the Hawthorns, reasonable enough considering that they have won the last seven in a row against West Brom. They have also scored exactly three goals in each of their last four games in the Premier League against West Brom and the Citizens can be backed at 12/1 to win 3-0 or 3-1 in the correct score market. The game going over 2.5 goals is trading at 4/5 with Bet365 and with West Brom not being very active in the summer, with really only James McClean coming over from Wigan at the time of writing, the Baggies who finished 12th last season are a 10/3 shot to bank a top ten finish next term.

Bet365 offer some tremendous football betting coverage, with everything from live streams to over 70 live betting markets after kick off on top matches, 100% acca win bonuses and 0-0 bore draw insurance on all matches. New customers can take earn a 100% matched deposit bonus as a welcome bonus too.

West Brom v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 4/7, Draw 3/1, West Brom 9/2

West Brom v Manchester City Predictions

Manchester City are strong favourites to open their new season with a win and the fact they face Chelsea in their second game put extra urgency on them to win this. The Baggies have struggled against the Citizens and you would expect that to continue in a game which should go over 2.5 goals.

Manchester City finally got their man in shelling out almost £50 million for Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling. That is a hefty price for the young England star, but Liverpool stuck to their guns, not too surprisingly really because they will have to send £9 million of the purse to QPR from where Sterling was signed.

So a monster signing and online betting site Bet365 have made Sterling 11/4 to score ten or more Premier League goals for Manchester City in the forthcoming season. It’s not too likely that that will happen as he hasn’t broken the double-digit marks yet, netting seven league goals last season and nine the term before.

He can instead be backed at 1/4 not to reach double figures and the bookmaker have priced him up at 11/10 to score in either of the two clashes against Liverpool.

Is Manchester City closing in on Raheem Sterling? After calling in sick for Liverpool training for a couple of days this week, the young England star has been named in the pre-season squad for the Reds as they head out to the far east and Australia. however, Sterling asked Brendan Rodgers not to take him as he has been pushing for a move away from Anfield.

Liverpool has already rejected two bids from Manchester City for Sterling believed to have been £30 and £40 but Liverpool won’t contemplate selling him unless they get £50 for him. That is because they would still have to pay a chunk to QPR, where they signed him from.

Latest reports are suggesting that Manchester City are closing in on their man, willing to offer £40 up front along with an extra £4 million to come as add-ons. Sterling is now a quote of 7/2 at William Hill to be in Liverpool’s first Premier League game of the new season and is a 1/6 quote to be a Man City player by the end of the summer. There is only a 4/1 option that he remains at Anfield.

Premier League Betting

The fixture list for the 2015/16 Premier League was announced on Tuesday and immediately there was some appeal in 11/2 shots Manchester United, who will be more than delighted with the run in that they have at the end of the season. Louis van Gaal’s men could be in with a good shout of snatching the title if they are in the picture down the final stretch, as there is a clutch of winnable matches waiting for them.

United’s last five games next season are against Aston Villa, West Ham, Leicester City, Norwich and Bournemouth. So their 11/2 quote at Ladbrokes to win the Premier League crown will certainly have even more appeal when punters look at that. But, of course, things do get balanced out a bit because they have a tough October where they face Arsenal, Everton and Manchester City in consecutive games.

Chelsea holds favouritism at the ahead of the market with a 6/5 Ladbrokes quote. The Blues open at home against Swansea but then face their first big match of the season when they travel to Manchester City on August 15th, their second fixture of the season. Chelsea face Bournemouth, Sunderland and Leicester in their final five fixtures, the other two in that sequence behind home fixtures against Spurs and Man City.

The Chelsea Game aside, Man City look to have a comfortable start to the season, but they will turn around at the end and have to face Chelsea and Arsenal in their last five games and the Citizens are running as 5/2 second favourites to win next season’s title. As for Liverpool, they are running out at 28/1 to get their hands on the domestic price.

Brendan Rodgers faces a tough sequence of opening away fixtures, kicking off with a trip to face Stoke at the Britannia, where they were humiliated 6-1 on the final day of last season. Their next away game then sees them go to Arsenal, which in turn is followed by a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United.

Next season’s newcomers Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich will be relatively happy with the respective fixtures which they have to kick the season off with. Bournemouth takes on Aston Villa at home, while Watford make a trip to Everton who are generally slow out of the blocks while Norwich will entertain Crystal Palace at Carrow Road. Ladbrokes are offering odds of 33/1 that all three win their opening fixtures.

Some other Premier League enhanced odds specials running at Ladbrokes at the moment are Bournemouth to avoid relegation at even money (up from 8/11), Watford to avoid relegation at 5/4 (up from evens) and Stoke to land a top ten finish which is also now a price of 5/4 (up from even money). That’s it, folks, Premier League 2015/16 betting starts here.

Arsenal FA CUP

Well it was so comfortable in the end for Arsene Wenger as he guided Arsenal to their record 12th FA Cup title. The Gunners put on a great show to blow away the challenge of Aston Villa, banking themselves an easy 4-0 win over the Midlands outfit.

It took them until the 40th minute to find the breakthrough, Theo Walcott opening the rout. Walcott had been a 15/2 quote in the first goalscorer market for the FA Cup Final. Alexis Sanchez, Per Mertesacker and then deep into stoppage time, Olivier Giroud popped up with a fourth. So a successful FA Cup defence for the Gunners.

Can they make it three in a row next season?

Arsenal are running as 7/1 third favourites in 2015/16 FA Cup betting, putting them in as joint third favourites alongside Manchester United. Chelsea are the 5/1 favourites for FA Cup success, with online betting site Sky Bet, followed by Manchester City at a 6/1 quote.

It is a pretty tough feat to pull off three FA Cup wins in a row, the last team to do it was Blackburn back in the 1880’s.

Manchester City v Southampton Betting Preview

Southampton need to produce a win from somewhere at the Etihad on Sunday. That is the only way in which they could potentially book themselves a top five finish. They start the weekend in seventh place, two points behind fifth placed Liverpool. Getting a win against City won’t be easy though as the Citizens are in brilliant form at the moment having won their last five on the bounce.

Online betting site Betfred have rolled out a brilliant new feature for mobile users. Sign up for an account with Betfred and then login through your mobile. Then you will have access to their ACCAttack a feature where you just name your stake and amount of winnings that you would like and they will build an acca for you, including information on why the selections have been made and the opportunity to alter the bet if you want!

Manchester City v Southampton Betting Tips

The Citizens are finishing the season with a real bang. They have banked wins in each of their last five Premier League games and are in immense home form too. They have netted sixteen goals in their last five games the Etihad and they put three past Southampton when the two met on the South Coast back in November. The Citizens have taken wins in each of their last four home games against Southampton and currently in the Premier League, they are on a six match winning streak at home and have gone unbeaten in their last seven there. Their overall home form has been W13 D3 L2 and with an average of over two goals per game from them at home, you can back this one to over over 2.5 goals at a quote of 1/2 with online betting site William Hill. When you have Sergio Aguero in form, it’s pretty easy to win games. He has six in his last five game and is a 3/1 First Goalscorer quote with online betting site Betfred. The Citizens have taken five clean sheets in their last six home games and are an 11/5 quote to win to nil.

Manchester City v Southampton

If they want to bank a top five finish, Southampton would need the three points and hope that Liverpool and Spurs fail to win their respective final games. So it’s not looking too likely, and the Saints themselves are big underdogs for three points. They boosted their confidence with a 6-1 win at St Mary’s over Aston Villa last weekend. But that doesn’t paint an accurate picture of their recent form. Since losing keeper Fraser Forster they have gone on the slide and have lost three of their last five played (W1 D1 L3). With just two wins in their last six it is hard to expect them to take three points at the Etihad. They aren’t carrying the away form to pull that off, having lost five of their last six away from the south coast (D1). Pile on top of that a loss on each of their last four visits to City, then the Saints don’t look too likely to add to their best ever points tally for a Premier League season.

Manchester City v Southampton Betting Odds

Man CIty 4/7, Draw 4/1, Southampton 11/2

Manchester City v Southampton Predictions

Southampton had hit the skids until they produced that massive win over Villa last weekend. All that did was keep their hopes of a top five finish alive, but those hopes will probably be crushed by Man City who are in great form at the moment and looking for their sixth win on the bounce. Would back a home win and Aguero to score anytime.

Football News

Online betting site Skybet have backed Manchester City into odds on favourite (5/6) to sign Raheem Sterling in the summer. The 20 year old is priced up at a 2/1 to remain at Liverpool, with Chelsea and Arsenal both trading at 5/1 with the bookmaker to capture the signature of the England forward.

Sterling and his representatives apparently told Liverpool on Monday that he had no intention of signing a new deal with the Anfield club when he sits down for contract talks on Friday. While fans may look at this is something of a greedy move by Sterling, with former Liverpool man Phil Thompson saying that he believes Sterling is stonewalling because of asking for a hefty new salary.

Raheem Sterling

But it could of course be down to ambition. Liverpool failed to break into the UEFA Champions League for next season and with three of the top four clubs having their names in the hat to sign Sterling, then the youngster is likely to stand a bigger chance of winning silverware with a move to somewhere like Man City or Chelsea. In the current standing of things, that is just fact.

Sky Bet’s Chris Spicer said: “We’re starting to see a lot of interest on the Transfer Specials now, with some big deals being backed to happen this summer.

“We typically see quite balanced betting on these markets with some shrewder punters getting less carried away by the speculation, but all the money has been on Sterling to switch clubs when the transfer window opens.”

Swansea v Manchester City Betting Preview

Manchester City are still nervously looking over their shoulders and seeing Arsenal looming large in their rearview mirror. That is the scrap for second place, but the Citizens can take a huge step towards securing the runners up spot with a win at the Liberty on Sunday. But they will be facing an in-form Swansea side who have something to play for themselves, a shot at making next season’s Europa League.

Online betting site Bet365 have some great features to boost your football betting, such as their 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance, a partial cash-out feature and some acca win bonuses. Build yourself a threefold or bigger acca with Bet365 and if it wins, they will pay you out a win bonus on top of your regular earnings. The more selections in your winning bet, the bigger the percentage of bonus payout! New customers can also get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus.

Swansea v Manchester City Betting Tips

Well, both of these have run into a bit of form, with Swansea having won their last three Premier League matches in a row. Can they make it four in a row, something they have only ever managed to do once before (August 2014)? A big three points on offer for sure, but Swansea have lost four of their last five matches against Manchester City, drawing the other one. They gave a great account of themselves earlier in the season at the Etihad losing 2-1 after Wilfried Bony (now of Man City) had put them ahead in the game. They didn’t have the resiliency to hold out those. Swansea have recorded numbers of W5 D1 L1 in their last six Premier League match and have only suffered one defeat in their last seven at the Liberty Stadium. Garry Monk incidentally has the best win percentage of any Swansea City manager in the Premier League (42%)

Bafetimbi Gomis has fired off a goal in each of his last four appearances for Swansea in the Premier League, although in general they still look a little lightweight in the final third of the pitch. Gomis, who netted the winner against Arsenal last weekend to break the good form of the Gunners, is trading at a quote of 2/1 in the Bet365 anytime goal scorer market. The Swansea have only been beaten at home four times this season, and of all their home games they have have only been losing at half time in five of them. This most likely will go under 2.5 goals, with three of the last four between them at the Liberty having done so. Only 39% of Swansea’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals, and you can this one to go under at 6/5, which looks decent value.

The Premier League golden boot is more likely than not going to end up in the hands of Sergio Aguero this season. He has caught fire again, firing in eight goals in his last five games and not only that, he is big 3/1 first goalscorer value, as he has netted the opening goal on each of his last five top flight appearances. That’s some form. He has scored the opening goal in games more times than any other player this season (10). Manchester City’s away form is still a little ropey, having lost four of their last five. They ended their losing streak on the road in their last away game, taking a 1-0 win at Tottenham. Could be value in a Draw/Man City half time/full time bet as Man City’s substitutes have been involved in more Premier League goals than any other side this season (18 – nine goals, nine assists).

Swansea v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 3/4, Draw 3/1, Swansea 4/1

Swansea v Manchester City Predictions

The Swans have been going well but have struggled to get much change out of Manchester City in recent times. They will probably push hard but at the end of the day, with City’s Aguero firing again, that may make the difference in the three points going to the away side in a low scoring affair.

“I have already said 200 million times – I will be here next season. That’s it,” said Pep Guardiola when faced with more rumours that he could be heading to Manchester City next season. The current Bayern Munich boss has kept blowing off rumours that he is on his way to the Etihad, but despite all his denials, Guardiola remains firm favourite to replace Manuel Pellegrini next season at the Premier League club.

Guardiola, who is rumoured to have made a verbal agreement with City, has drifted from 1-4 to 6-5 with Paddy Power to be the next permanent City manager. Still, that is a long way shorter than second favourite Carlo Ancelotti at 11-4 with Jurgen Klopp available at 3-1. Patrick Vieira comes in as a 7/1 shot in what appears to be a four horse race.

Everyone else in the rumour market is bar 20/1. Bayern failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League final on Tuesday night, despite beating Barcelona in the second leg of their semi final clash. That snapped a winless streak for Bayern after landing the Bundesliga title.
