Bet Victor

All eyes will be on the Etihad on Sunday evening as early season pace-setters Chelsea head north to defend their 100% start to the new season. The Blues, fired along by the goals of Diego Costa with Cesc Fabregas pulling the strings behind him, are underdogs for the game, but they are carrying a lot of confidence and form into the game.

Chelsea have won all of their opening four games to the season, and each of them by a two goal margin. The Blues won their last league trip to the Etihad 1-0 thanks to some tactical brilliance by Jose Mourinho. Will he go defensive again, or will he unleash his attacking beast to try and crush their biggest title rival?

Manchester City have hit a sticky patch of form, but have only failed to score in two of their last 71 home league matches. Sergio Aguero is a man in form and will be hoping to outshine Chelsea’s goal machine Diego Costa on Sunday. There is big firepower in the ranks of both, so the goals are expected to come at the Etihad.

If either side produces a comeback win after falling behind in the game, then online betting site Bet Victor will refund losing stakes on the correct score, first/last/anytime goalscorer market, spincast/scorecast and half time/full time markets. Tremendous promotion and new customers can get up to a free £25 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Preview

The big clash of the Premier League weekend without a shadow of a doubt. The Citizens really need to play catch up and make in-roads to Chelsea’s hugely positive start to the new season. The bookmakers have City as only narrow favourites for this one, but they know that they will face a tough challenge to produce three points.

Online betting site Ladbrokes have a huge promotion running for this one. They are offering money back if Manchester City beat Chelsea. This incredible offer applies to bets placed on the Correct Score, First Goalscorer and Scorecast markets. New customers registering an account with Ladbrokes can get up to a free £100 bet as a welcome bonus.

Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Tips

Tough season for Manuel Pellegrini’s men and they have to show some mettle in this one. They are without a win in their last three games played, one of those being a shock defeat at the Etihad against Stoke in the Premier League. That was just the second home game in their last 71 league matches in which they failed to score. The other one in that run was last season’s 1-0 home loss against Chelsea. City lost 1-0 at bayern Munich in the Champions League in the week, and with it being a late goal conceded, it may have knocked the wind out of them. That loss followed a late rescued point for the Citizens at Arsenal last weekend.

Sergio Aguero has scored ten goals in his last 12 Premier League matches at the Etihad, and he has also assisted four more in that run. He is always backable in the anytime goalscorer market and it should be a great showdown between him and Chelsea’s Diego Costa for the headlines in this one. City haven’t looked at their sharpest this term, looking a bit slow and mechanically deliberate rather than inspired. That is reflected in Yaya Toure not having had a hand in any goal for the club this season. With four points dropped already in the league title race compared to Chelsea, they need a response. City have lost just one of the last six at home against the Blues in all competition.

Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas. What a pair of signings by Jose Mourinho. Fabregas is looking for his seventh consecutive Premier League match in a row with an assist, while Diego Costa has already netted seven goals in his four matches this season. He has to be worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market for Sunday’s clash. The Blues also have a trend going this season in that they have won all of their games by a two goal margin this season. They were frustrated in a 1-1 draw against Schalke in the Champions League during the week though, will City have learned anything from that?

Jose Mourinho won a huge tactical battle last season at the Etihad in their victory. Chelsea have won more away games in the Premier League at Man City than at any other club. The Blues took a massive 16 points from a possible 18 against the other top four sides last season, including the two wins over City. Both teams to score seems a probable outcome in this one as well as the game going over 2.5 goals. Chelsea are a different beast this season, looking to attack with menace. Can City withstand them?

Manchester City v Chelsea Betting Odds

Man City 7/5, Chelsea 2/1, Draw 12/5

Manchester City v Chelsea Predictions

A great early season title clash on the cards, between the two pre-season favourites to be crowned Champions. Chelsea have looked ominous, and while City are stuttering, there is value in them at home. They have to get something together at some point and they do have an immense Premier League home record. Maybe worth shading the home side with Ladbrokes, as this will be the first time that we have seen the new look Chelsea come against a title contender this term.

William Hill

It is Manchester City’s turn to try and take down one of the top German sides on Wednesday night, as they face up to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. They will have already seen Arsenal lose 2-0 in Germany against Borussia Dortmund, and it perhaps just highlights how tough of a task that this is going to be for Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

City aren’t carrying great form, losing against Stoke and then rescuing a late draw against Arsenal in their last two Premier League matches. After being handed another tough Champions League group stage draw, they will want to try and avoid defeat at the Allianz Arena so that they aren’t immediately on the back foot in the qualification chase.

Last season the Citizens had to make the trip to the Allianz Arena to face Pep Guardiola’s Bayern, and after falling behind by two goals in the game, it looked as if it was going to be a long night for the Premier League club. But to their credit, they pulled off a shock comeback against the German giants, taking a 3-2 win over them. With Bayern winning just one of their last five home European matches against English sides, can City pull off a repeat?

Four matches they have played against each other in the competition, and the head to head stands even at two wins each. City will be looking to Sergio Aguero to deliver and he is in immense away-scoring form, having netted nine in his last eleven away from the Etihad. Backed up by Edin Dzeko and Stefan Jovetic, City have goals in them. So do Bayern of course with the likes of Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller.

Both Teams To Score in Bayern Munich v Manchester City betting was 13/20, but new customers registering an account with online betting site William Hill can get a hugely enhanced price boost of 3/1 on both teams to find the back of the net.

Head to the bookmaker and use the special code GOALS3 on the new account, placing your first stake on the account on the yes option for Both Teams To Score in the game. You will be paid out at the regular odds if it happens, but then William Hill will adjust your winnings to reflect a return of a massive 3/1 quote.

There is extra great coverage at William Hill who cover matches with their great 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance, First Goalscorer insurance and 6+fold Acca insurance as well.

Champions League

Manchester City v Bayern Munich Betting Preview

The Citizens can’t seem to catch much of a break when it comes to Champions League draws. Here they go again in a tough group, not only having to deal with Bayern Munich, but Roma as well. Tough test for Manuel Pellegrini’s men, who are struggling to puts wins on the board at the moment. With a big Premier League clash against Chelsea coming on the weekend, can they get focused for this trip to Germany? Man City are 4/1 underdogs at online bookmaker Paddy Power for this one.

Head over to online betting site Paddy Power for some pick your own insurance. Select your own refund trigger from David Silva scoring anytime, Arjen Robben scoring first, the match ending in a draw or a goal in the last five minutes. Lost stake refunds on the correct score, scorecast or first/last goalscorer markets will be paid out if your refund trigger gets activated.

Manchester City v Bayern Munich Betting Tips

The Citizens have won just two of five matches this season (including the Community Shield) so not the strongest start. Man City head into this one after rescuing a late point at Arsenal in the Premier League on the weekend and they are looking a bit nervy at the moment. For the third time in four years these two go up against each other in the group stage. Last season City did take a 3-2 win on German soil, fighting back from 2-0 down in the matchday six fixture. That snapped Bayern Munich’s run of ten Champions League match wins in a row.

City of course made it through to the round of sixteen for the first time ever last season, losing there against Barcelona. Slow progress, but progress nonetheless. They did post wins in all three of their away group stage matches last season, at Viktoria Plzen, CSKA Moscow and Bayern. Overall, City’s record away at Bundesliga clubs is W2 D0 L5. Manuel Pellegrini has a touchline ban for this one and Pablo Zabaleta is suspended too. You have to look for Sergio Aguero as their best hope in front of goal, as he has scored four goals in five outings this term for club and country. He has nine in his last 11 away games and is quoted at 9/4 to net anytime on Wednesday.

Bayern Munich made their third consecutive semi final appearance last season, losing there to Real Madrid. They knocked out Arsenal in the last 16 and Manchester United in the quarter finals. Incidentally though, their second leg win over United was the first time in their last five matches against English clubs on home soil, that they have produced a win. Overall, Bayern’s home record against English clubs is W11 D6 L3. They did lost the German Super Cup against Dortmund, but have posted a W3 D1 L0 record in eh Bundesliga, but with just one clean sheet only.

Munich have huge scoring power from Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller, both even money in the anytime goalscorer market, to Arjen Robben and Mario Gotze. Powerful side, perhaps not quite as strong in midfield as they could be, but are going to take some beating. Their overall head to head record against Man City stands at W2 L2 from their four previous meetings.

Manchester City v Bayern Munich Betting Odds

Bayern Munich 4/6, Draw 3/1, Man City 4/1

Manchester City v Bayern Munich Predictions

You can’t say that either have really hit top gear this season. Man City look more of a carefully engineered side as opposed to be free flowing. Bayern will probably control possession and that will give them an edge in this one. Back both teams to score at a price of 4/7 with online betting site Paddy Power.

Milner - Dzeko (Manchester City)

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Preview

The big Saturday lunchtime game in the Premier League and what a clash it should be. The Citizens have already tasted defeat this season, suffering a shock home loss against Stoke last time out. Arsenal still surely have more gears to go up through, so can the Gunners turn around some poor recent league form against the Citizens for a huge three points? Arsenal are 7/4 underdogs home turf for this one. Value?

Online betting site Paddy Power have a big promotion running for this one, as you can select your own Money Back trigger for it. They will refund losing first/last goalscorer, correct score & scorecast bets on the game if the trigger you select gets activated. You can choose from Alexis Sanchez scoring anytime, Sergio Aguero scoring first, a drawn match or a goal in the last five minutes of the game. Paddy Power also offer a 20% win bonus on 5-fold or bigger accas.

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Tips

There is enough in this one to get behind the Gunners. While they have only won three of the last twelve league matches against the Citizens, they have only lost one of 17 previous Premier League home games against them. That lone 2-0 defeat from those 17 games in North London has been the only time that Man City have scored more than one goal in a game there. The Gunners have had their struggles so far this season, just scraping past Crystal Palace on the opening weekend, fighting back from two goals down to grab a draw at Everton, and then being held to a 1-1 draw by leicester. It hasn’t been stellar stuff from them, and they just haven’t had their big players performing so far.

Wenger’s solution to losing Olivier Giroud for the rest of the year was to bring in Danny Welbeck, who is a 2/1 shot in the anytime goalscorer market. He has to be in high spirits after his England exploits in the week, netting a brace against Switzerland. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 19 Premier League home games (W14 D5) so they have that record going for them, and they have won their last four on the bounce there. Defensively you do have to worry about them, as they have conceded four goals from seven shots on target against them so far. IProbably worth pushing this game to go over 2.5 goals for a price of 4/5 with online betting site Paddy Power, many may think, but only two of the last nine meetings have gone over the mark. Better value in going under.

Manchester City have not lost two consecutive matches in the Premier League since back in October of 2010. One of those games through were against Arsenal though. Sergio Aguero is their main man of course and he has scored eight goals in his last 10 Premier League away matches. Aguero is even money favorite in the anytime goalscorer market for this one. Given their record at Arsenal in the Premier League, seeing Manchester City pick up three points in this one could be a bit of a stretch for punters to get behind them. Of course, when they do get going, they can be extremely difficult to stop.

They opened the season with very efficient, effective wins over Newcastle and Liverpool, but then that shocker at home against Stoke could threaten to derail them. They were very lacklustre in the game, not really able to get up a head of steam and that has been a feature of all their games this season. They just haven’t completely clicked into any kind of pace and flow. The Citizens, albeit a weakened side from them, were destroyed by Arsenal in the Community Shield. After the Stoke game they may be happy enough to get out of this with a point and if you are backing them, do it with coverage at a quote of 4/6 in a Draw No bet.

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 11/8, Arsenal 7/4, Draw 5/2

Arsenal v Manchester City Predictions

No reason not to back Arsenal in this one. Yes, Man City destroyed Liverpool efficiently, but they have looked sluggish so far this season. Arsenal haven’t been great yet this season, but Wenger’s men can surely challenge for a massive three points in this one. At 7/4 with online bookamer Paddy Power there is some value in the Gunners at the Emirates.

Champions League

Once again Manchester City have drawn a pretty short straw in the Champions League draw. After making it past the group stage for the first time last season, they have to go up against Roma, CSKA Moscow and Bayern Munich in the battle to make it to the knockout stages this time around.

It is not an easy task again for the Citizens, and they head out to Germany to face Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich in their opening match on Wednesday, September 17th. Manuel Pellegrini’s men are trading as 9/2 underdogs to land the win in that one, with the German champions running as odds on favourites with online betting site Bet365.

City have faced Bayern Munich twice before in the Champions League, holding a 2-2 head to head record, and after falling behind by two goals inside the first fifteen minutes on their last visit there in December 2013, they pulled off a spirited comeback 3-2 victory, despite taking less than 40% of possession in the game.

Bayern Munich haven’t exploded out of the blocks in their new season, while Man City, have for the most post, looked efficient, if a bit lethargic. But they must have learned lessons from last season’s qualifiers and all the group match trials they have gone through in the past in the Champions League. Not having been drawn in an easy Champions League group yet, that

City are 9/4 second favourites to win Champions League Group E, and are odds on at 2/5 to qualify from the group. The biggest stumbling block to City could be Serie A side Roma who could make a nuisance of themselves. But the problem for City is trying to manage that first game in Munich. A draw would be a huge reward, whereas a defeat, even though the other two sides are likely to fall victim to Bayern’s power in Munich, immediately sets City on the back foot.

That’s not what they want this time around. Defeat in the opener changes the whole outlook, the whole attitude of how to approach games in the group. Sergio Aguero is 5/6 favourite to be City’s top scorer in the Champions League this season, and they are 11/4 to get knocked out in the last sixteen and 17/4 to fall at the quarter final stage.

There is a great opportunity to get your hands on some extra profit from your Champions League betting this season at online bookmaker Bet365 who offer up to 100% Euro Soccer Bonuses for your access, which includes the top European domestic leagues and the Champions League. A winning treble will return a 5% win bonus for example, while a sixfold will return you a 20% bonus, and the scale of rewards keeps going up depending on how many selections are in your bet. With up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus too, Bet365 deliver great Champions League betting coverage.

Reigning Premier League champions Manchester City, who capitalised on the failures of Liverpool to close the season out with the title, are trading as 5/6 favourites to win Monday night’s game on home soil, leaving the Reds as big 3/1 value. Can the Reds get an unexpected away win on the board in a game in a which a big three points in the title race is up for grabs? While it is early days of course, the winner of this will receive a great fillip after both won their opening fixtures for the season.

Premier League Betting

Manchester City v Liverpool Betting Preview

A huge early season clash between first and second last season. A big three points up for grabs and it is the Citizens who are running as favourites to get them in the bag. It was honours even between the two last season as they both won their respective home games, will that keep things in favour of the reigning champions?

Manchester City v Liverpool Betting Tips

In each of their last four league games against Liverpool, Manchester City have netted exactly two goals in each of them. You expect the Citizens to be scoring on home turf and the natural inclination is to expect this game to go over 2.5 goals with Paddy Power. The last five have done so and seven of the last ten have, so it’s more than reasonable to expect a high scoring return. City were expertly efficient in their opening 2-0 win at Newcastle last weekend, never under threat at the back while creating some good opportunities. Sergio Aguero, who has the best minutes-per-goal rate in Premier League history is even money in the anytime goalscorer market. Edin Dzeko is the form man though with five goals and one assist in his last five appearances. He is 6/5 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market.

City scored a massive 63 goals at home last season, which was more than 15 of 20 Premier League teams managed in total. They are on a five match unbeaten streak at home against Liverpool W3 D2, so there is good reason to back them here.

Liverpool got off to a shaky start this season, post Luis Suarez of course. They were rattled and outplayed at home against Southampton, but still managed to run out 2-1 winners thanks to a late strike by Daniel Sturridge. The England man really needs to fire for Liverpool, as without him there isn’t much there. Sturridge is a 7/4 shot in the anytime goalscorer market. Sturridge has scored 32 goals in 44 league matches for Liverpool. Last season Liverpool won just two matches against fellow members of the top four, so that is where their challenge fell down. In their last four trips to the Etihad, they have conceded as many as they did in their previous eleven.

Manchester City v Liverpool Betting Odds

Man City 4/5, Draw 11/4, Liverpool 3/1

Big promotion over at online betting site Paddy Power. If Daniel Sturridge scores at anytime in the game, then the bookmaker will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast singles on the match with a free bet! The maximum refund is up to £100.

Manchester City v Liverpool Predictions

There really has to be goals in this one. Man City looked strong in all areas against Newcastle last weekend, while Liverpool had little fluency.They have match winners in their ranks, but no-one gets much change out of the Etihad. The Citizens are a decent price to get behind to win their home game and lay down some early intent against a title rival.

Manuel Pellegrini (Man City)

Newcastle v Manchester City Betting Preview

Well, Manchester City will have to do better than they did defensively in the Community Shield against Arsenal last weekend. They probably will be better, as more of their regular starting eleven will be out including captain Vincent Kompany. Newcastle have done some smart business over the summer transfer window, but they still look short of genuine match winners, especially compared to Manchester City.

Newcastle v Manchester City Betting Tips

These two met on the opening day of last season at the Etihad, and it was City who took a 4-0 win. Newcastle have won just one of their last five opening matches to a new season (D2 L2) and they have been handed a tough start here. They weren’t convincing at all last season, with only the on-loan Loic Remy looking likely to ever score for them. He’s gone back to parent club QPR leaving the Magpies looking a bit short up front for goals. It probably isn’t worth looking at any of the Newcastle players in the anytime goalscorer market, as they have failed to score in their last three Premier League matches with Manchester City.

The Magpies have scored in just one of the last six matches in all competitions against the Citizens. Newcastle tanked towards the end of last season, losing eleven of their last 15 games, but remarkably they managed to finish in the top half of the table. Alan Pardew always seems to be a man under pressure and while his summer signings have strengthened the squad, it still isn’t a squad which has the look of producing a lot of cut and thrust and goals. Young Frenchman Emmanuel Riviere, who scored 14 goals in 23 appearances for Monaco last season in the league, could be the bright spark of the season for them.

But they are going to get new players bedded in, while Manchester City have pretty much stood pat with their title winning squad from last season. Man City have won four and lost none of their last five opening weekend league matches, and they have kept clean sheets in four of those. City were really slow out of the blocks on the road last season, winning just two of their first eight away games. Only Liverpool and Arsenal managed to pick up more road points at the end of the season though, as the Citizens found their feet on their travels.

Even though they didn’t carry the same attacking swagger from the previous season, they still managed to score 102 goals, the second highest tally in the history of the Premier League. They scored eight unanswered goals in three matches against the Magpies last season and you would expect more of the same to come. They just have more match winners, especially in a fit Sergio Aguero, who scored 17 goals and made six assists in just 23 appearances. Aguero is around the price of even money to net at St James’ Park on Sunday, looking some good value.

Newcastle v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 8/13, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 4/1

The Citizens are trading as 12/5 second favourites to win the Premier League this season, but new customers opening an account with Paddy Power can take a price of 9/1 on Man City retaining their title. That is because of the massive enhanced odds Premier League winner promotion that the bookmaker is running at the moment. There is also a free£10 matched bet on top to enjoy as well.

Newcastle v Manchester City Predictions

Wouldn’t look any further than a Manchester City win in this one. Their record against the Magpies speaks for itself and you will see a stronger performance from City than in the Community Shield. They are stacked with match winners too and would consider value in Man City To Win To Nil at a price of 2/1 with Paddy Power.

Premier League Betting

The Premier League is back on August 16th with seven games on the way, including Manchester United v Swansea and Arsenal v Crystal Palace. Online betting site Titanbet are offering odds of 5/1 that the match over the opening weekend of the Premier League will be Newcastle v Man City.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew will no doubt be eying up a bit upset on Sunday when the reigning champions come to town. Newcastle, who struggled for goals last season, have lost the last ten matches in all competitions about Manchester City.

So the Magpies may not be backed for the win, but their defence, which looked a shambles at times last season, may be backed to give up chances to Man City and allow the Citizens to hit the ground running in their title defence. This corresponding fixture last season ended in a 2-0 win for the Citizens, with Man City winning 4-0 on home turf. There have been four goals scored in six of the last seven league match ups between these.

The second favourite option in the Highest Scoring Game is Liverpool v Southampton on Sunday also which is evaluated as an 11/2 shot at Titanbet. This may be based on all of the selling off of their best players that Southampton have done in the summer. Liverpool have yet to find a replacement for Luis Suarez and may not be as prolific as last season without him, but will still play with that same attacking swagger, and will be keen to get off to a flyer at Anfield.

There are other tempters in the market, particularly the Man Utd v Swansea and Arsenal v Crystal Palace matches at 6/1 and 13/2 respectively. Here you have big side at home against sides who could find themselves in a relegation scrap at the end of the season. Both United and Arsenal are favourites to win their games, but will the goals be racked up in the matches?

Online betting site Titanbet offer up to £50 worth of free bets to new customers registering an account with them. The bookmaker is also currently running fantastic insurance on all 4-fold bets placed across any sports, if just one leg of the wager lets you down. Customers can also get a free £5 bet for placing at least £50 worth of bets too!
