Premier League Betting

The Premier League Golden Boot this season was expected to come down to a duel between Chelsea’s Diego Costa and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero. While the two established hitmen are well in the mix, they were caught and even surpassed on the weekend by young England forward Harry Kane.

The Tottenham striker, who has made incredible returns for the Lilywhites this season, bagged his first ever Premier League hattrick to help Spurs get back to winning ways in the top flight, as they saw off the relegation-threatened Leicester 4-3 at White Hart Lane.

Kane has been moved to 11/8 favourite to win the Golden Boot at online betting site Ladbrokes. That has left Chelsea’s Diego Costa, who picked up another hamstring injury against Hull on the weekend at 7/4, with Sergio Aguero a 2/1 shot to land the crown. Kane sits on nineteen goals, level with Costa (who netted in Chelsea’s win over the Tigers), with Sergio Aguero back on 17 and QPR’s Charlie Austin on 15.

After the thrills of the Champions League during the week, it is back to domestic duty for Arsenal and Manchester City on Saturday. The Gunners, who are in good form at the moment, will be looking to shake off their European disappointments against Monaco with a win on Tyneside against Newcastle. Arsenal are favourites for the win there, with Newcastle looked a lack-lustre and dejected side at the moment.

Manchester City also exited the Champions League during the week, as they were eliminated by Barcelona. Now the pressure is on boss Manuel Pellegrini with a realistic shot of ending the season empty handed staring them in the face. They need to up to the tempo to try and catch league leaders Chelsea and they will be expected to pick up three points at home against West Brom on Saturday.

Down near the other end of the table, the struggling Sunderland will get the first chance to see what new boss Dick Advocaat can do for them as he takes charge against West Ham. With a lack of wins and goals from the Black Cats, it is the Hammers who are edging favouritism.

Messi - Neymar (Barcelona)

Manchester City v Barcelona Betting Preview

Pretty long odds on Manchester City surviving this one. Manuel Pellegrini’s men have slumped to three defeats in their last four matches played in all competitions, not the kind of form to take to the Nou Camp and land a 2-0 win, which City needs to progress through to the knockout stage. Not too surprisingly, they are heavy underdogs for their trip to Spain on Wednesday.

All Champions League matches are covered by some great bonus winnings on accumulators at Bet365.

Manchester City v Barcelona Betting Tips

Can the Citizens pull this off? Well The stats of course are heavily against them doing so. They have lost four of their last five games against Spanish opposition in the UEFA Champions League (D1). They have only ever managed one away win in Spain as well, and that was against Villarreal back in November 2011. Given the way they have been playing lately, it is hard to see their defence banking a clean sheet, not the way that Messi got at them in the first leg. City have posted one clean sheet in their last 14 Champions league matches. Still, as they have to come out and try something, it is worth worth pushing for both teams to score for a price of 4/7 with online bookmaker Bet365.

Sergio Aguero is running at a big quote of 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market, which shows how much they are expected to struggle. In last season’s round of sixteen Man City were in the same situation, having lost their first leg at home against the Catalans, and then suffering another at the hands of Barcelona in the Nou Camp. City are going to have to reach deep, deep into their reserves here, going into this with three defeats in their last four games in all competitions. Barcelona have won through on 8 of their last 10 appearances in the round of sixteen in the Champions League, but the failures in there were against English opposition. Glimmer of hope for City?

Barcelona have posted a 100% home record in this season’s Champions League and to size up City’s task here, Barcelona have lost only one of their last 30 UEFA Champions League home fixtures, winning 23 of those. They also have a strong home record against English clubs of W16 D11 L2. From their last 35 occasions where they have won the first leg of UEFA Competition tie away from home, they have gone through on 33 of them. They have also posted a 6-2 aggregate over Man City in their three Champions League matches with them so far. Barcelona have won their last five games in all competitions, having scored at least two goals in each of them. Worth pushing Wednesday’s game to go over 2.5 goals.

Barcelona are also on a five match winning streak in the UEFA Champions League this season, and in each of their last 93 Champions League matches have dominated possession. Lionel Messi is 4/7 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market having scored 39 goals in 42 Champions League home matches. Luis Suarez has been producing too, with four goals in four games in this season’s competition. Just to highlight further the ability of Barca, 16 of Barcelona’s 17 goals in the Champions League this season have been scored from open play. With seven wins in their last eight home games in the competition this is going to be a big ask of City.

Manchester City v Barcelona Betting Odds

Barcelona 2/5, Draw 17/4, Man City 7/1

Manchester City v Barcelona Predictions

Would expect a Barcelona in in this one. They are in decent form, are scoring freely and City are just bent out of shape at the moment. After their loss against Burnley on the weekend, it could end up being a pretty rough week for Manuel Pellegrini’s troops. Barcelona should be good enough to win by a good two goal margin you would assume.

Manchester City

Burnley v Manchester City Betting Preview

Manchester City have had their wobbles recently and they face an uphill task at the Bernabeu in the week to try and get past Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League. That looks unlikely to happen, so full focus should be salvaging their Premier League form. The Clarets took a surprise point off Chelsea not too long back, and one at the Etihad back in December. Can they frustrate the Citizens at Turf Moor?

There is fantastic football insurance over at online bookmaker Unibet. They will refund all losing correct score, half time/full time, first goalscorer and last goalscorer bets on every Premier League game where a goal is netted after the 90th minute. The maximum refund from the offer is £75. New customers registering an account with Unibet can get a risk free £20 to enjoy too.

Burnley v Manchester City Betting Tips

Goals. History suggests that there are going to be some flying around in this one, plenty of them too at that. Across the last nine meetings between the two clubs in all competitions, there have been a total of 45 goals scored. Should send this one flying over 2.5 goals then. The Clarets could do with a repeat of the valuable point that they took at the Etihad earlier in the season. In battling back from two goals down to pinch a point, Burnley are the only team to come back to get any kind of a result in the last 68 league matches where Man City have been two goals ahead at any stage. The home form of the Clarets is not hot though. They won five of their first six home games in the Premier League (W5 L1) but since then have won just five of the last 27 (W5 D10 L12).

But a point from this could be huge in their fight against relegation. They are three points away from safety, sitting second from bottom heading into the weekend. But along with their point at the Etihad, they recently earned a surprise one at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea too.Danny Ings is a 3/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market for the Clarets, but they have failed to score in their last two league outings and have returned just 13 goals in 14 Premier League home games this season. Overall at Turf Moor in the top flight this season, Burnley have posted a W3 D5 L6 record and they are on a three match winless there. Incidentally, it may end being a narrow defeat if they lose, as Burnley’s last three home defeats in the top flight have all been by a one goal margin only.

City have the head to head form against Burnley to pull out three points. They are unbeaten in their last 13 matches in all competitions against Burnley (W8 D5 L0) and they are also unbeaten in their last six visits to Turf Moor in all competitions. City have posted five wins on the bounce there now, and just in their last four visits to Burnley have fired off 17 goals. No home side has stopped City scoring an away goal in their last twenty Premier League away games now and this season, they have produced more shots at goal than any other side in the top flight. They are decent travelers, because they have only suffered three defeats in their last 27 league fixtures on the road. Sergio Aguero is running as 8/11 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for Saturday’s trip to Turf Moor.

Burnley v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 4/9, Draw 7/2, Burnley 13/2

Burnley v Manchester City Predictions

If this fixture does produce goals then you would be expecting the Citizens to be getting the bulk of them. They may have to still work hard for the spoils, as Burnley are desperate for anything and never lie down. But City should have enough quality to edge the three points.

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.

Ladbrokes

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. The bookmaker will refund all losing correct score, half time/full time, first goalscorer and last goalscorer bets on the game, where a goal is scored after the 90th minute.

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.

Ladbrokes

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.

Bet365

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?

Head over to online betting site Bet365 and get a pre-match bet down on the Man City v Barcelona game, and in return they will give you back a risk free in-play bet on the game (to the same stake).

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.
