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.

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!

Premier League Betting

How massive will the loss of Luis Suarez be to Liverpool this season? The Reds benefited from a massive 31 goals from the Uruguayan last season, but as troubles continued to haunt him, the Premier League outfit sold him on to Barcelona to deal with. That has left a massive void up front now for Liverpool to try and have to fill. Is it even possible for them to replace Luis Suarez? It’s unlikely. They tried for Loic Remy but failed, so now Daniel Sturridge is going to be the one to carry the can. Despite all of Liverpool’s spending this summer, there is still a glaring hole up front.

That has left Liverpool at a price of even money with Bet365 in Premier League Top Four betting. Out of the five main contenders for the title this year, they are the only ones who are not priced at odds-on value. So what will Brendan Rodgers have up his sleeve? There is still time to pull in a big signing up front of course, but most of the money that the sale of Suarez brought in has already gone.

Will Suarez’s departure cost Liverpool a top four finish?

Chelsea and Manchester City are strong 1/25 shots to land a top four finished, with Manchester United at 4/9 and Arsenal hovering at 1/2. But the top four market is never about the big guns priced as favourites for the Premier League title. It is about who can squeeze behind them into a top four finish, which of course rewards with the huge prize of Champions League football the following season.

Last season finished with Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal occupying the top four spots, followed by Everton in fifth and Tottenham in sixth, with Manchester United well adrift down in seventh. Things are likely to change quite a bit from that with United back in the picture. Tottenham, under the new guidance of former Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino are 7/2 shots to squeeze into the top four. They have added Ben Davies and Michel Vorm from Swansea, along with Eric Dier from Sporting Lisbon. Still, it is hard to see where the goals are going to come from for Spurs.

Everton almost muscled their way into the top four last season, their end of season form just letting them down, losing three of their last five played. Can Roberto Martinez’s men go one better than their fifth place last season? They have managed to sign Romelu Lukaku on a permanent basis which is a big coup for them. Everton is priced out as 7/1 shots in the Premier League Top Four betting market.

Because of their price of 1/2, it is Arsenal who have taken the most amount of bets on the market, taking well over a quarter of the wagers staked. Online betting site Bet365 offer up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus for new customers registering an account with them.

Paddy Power

Arsenal v Manchester City Community Shield betting will mean that the start of the new Premier League season is just a week away. While this is just a piece of bonus silverware to be picked up, and not a title that anyone in particular remembers winning, there is of course pride and a bit of pre-season bragging rights to be picked up.

Of the last twenty goals scored in the Community Shield, just three of them have come in the first half of matches. So there is a clear trend, look for the second half to be the highest scoring at a price of even money with online betting site Paddy Power. Don’t necessarily look for both teams to be getting on the scoresheet either, as eight of the last eleven meetings between the two has seen just one side score in the match.

So will it be the established strike force of Man City’s Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic who wins the day over Arsenal’s more limited attack of Olivier Giroud. The Frenchman’s tally should be accentuated this time around with the help of Alexis Sanchez in creating chances.

Pick your own Community Shield Money Back Special at Paddy Power. Select between Sergio Aguero to score first, Alexis Sanchez to score first, Man City to win on penalties or Arsenal to win on penalties, and if your option happens, then Paddy Power will refund losing pre-match singles on the Correct Score, Scorecast and First Goalscorer markets.

Lukas Podolski (Arsenal)

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Preview

The first big meaningful clash of the season, even though it is still deemed to be a friendly. Reigning English champions Manchester City take on FA Cup winners Arsenal in the traditional Wembley clash to open the new season. City last got their hands on the shield in 2012, while Arsenal’s last success came back in 2004.

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Tips

There could be some importance about getting the win in this one. Six of the last seven Community Shield matches have now seen the winners go on to land the Premier League title in that season. Arsenal’s record against Man City over their last eight meetings hasn’t been good, picking up just the one win and losing half of them. There was an embarrassment for Arsene Wenger’s men at the Etihad last season when they were crushed 6-3 in the Premier League. But it is a new season, new optimism, and the Gunners have made one of the biggest signings of the summer in landing Alexis Sanchez.

The former Barcelona man is a 2/1 shot to score anytime with Paddy Power on the weekend, with team mate Olivier Giroud in at odds of 7/4. Wouldn’t necessarily look for Both Teams To Score for the Community Shield. While it is generally a more open game, eight of the last eleven matches between these two have seen just the one side get on the scoresheet. Arsenal do have a bigger history in the match though, having won it twelve times before, with seven runners up finishes. Man City have won four of nine appearances in the match (including the Charity Shield).

Besides the big money shelled out on Sanchez, Arsene Wenger has also drafted in Mathieu Debuchy, David Ospina and Calum Chambers, a total of £61 million spent in the summer. Manchester City, to many people’s surprises, have been pretty quiet, spending only on Fernando and Wilfredo Caballero, while picking up former Gunner Bacary Sagna on a free. It points to boss Manuel Pellegrini being fairly happy with his squad, and Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic are all around the 7/4 market with Paddy Power in the anytime goalscorer market.

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 11/10, Arsenal 23/10, Draw 5/2

You can pick your own Money Back Special for the Community Shield at Paddy Power. Select from either Sergio Aguero to score first, Alexis Sanchez to score first, Man City to win on penalties or Arsenal to win on penalties and if it happens, Paddy Power will pay out lost stake refunds on the First Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast markets.

Arsenal v Manchester City Predictions

No-one will be remembering the result come the end of the season, so many it will be a toss of the coin. Man City have held a bit of dominance over Arsenal lately and would push for that to continue at a decent price of 11/10 on the Citizens to take the victory.

Manchester City v AC Milan Betting Preview

The reigning Premier League champions are out at the International Champions Cup along with Man Utd and Liverpool as well. This is an eight team tournament held across North America and a it is a great chance to step up the level of competitive action ahead of the new season. They take on the fallen giants of Italian football that is AC Milan and the Citizens could get a reunion with Mario Balotelli.

Manchester City v AC Milan Betting Tips

Manuel Pellegrini’s men will turn to some semi competitive action ahead of their Premier League title defence. They take on AC Milan in Group A of the International Champions Cup, before having to face Olympiakos and Liverpool in the round robin group. The winner of the two groups will face in the Championship match. City have been relatively quiet in the summer transfer market although they have been linked with just about everybody under the sun. Their next competitive match is the FA Community Shield on August 10th, which isn’t too far away, so this will be a good warm up for them.

They were dealt a blow with Alvaro Negredo picking up a broken foot injury which could keep him out of action for a couple of months. It is going to leave John Guidetti and Stevan Jovetic their best options in the anytime goalscorer market, as Sergio Aguero isn’t likely to be in action for this one after his struggles for fitness at the World Cup. Jovetic is a good option at a price of 2/1, and if anything this tournament will serve as a good indicator to Pellegrini, just who he can trust as back up strikers ahead of the long season.

AC Milan only finished down in seventh in Serie A last season and apparently they are open to offers for star player Mario Balotelli. They could use the cash injection truthfully. The two sides have only faced off against each other once before and that was in the 1978 UEFA Cup, which City won 5-2 on aggregate. Tough to read this one because the Citizens are short of the main strike force and of course it is still pre-season so there is going to be a bit of a lack of match sharpness. The Italians aren’t anything to be worried about though, and would expect the game to go under 2.5 goals in the tournament opener for both.

Manchester City v AC Milan Betting Odds

Man City 5/6, Draw 13/5, AC Milan 16/5

There is a free bet to be gained every day at online betting site Paddy Power until the end of July.

Manchester City v AC Milan Predictions

It is pre-season so there are some good odds around. City are the better team of the two, there’s little question about that, so there is enough value at a price of 5/6 with Paddy Power on them to get out of this one with a win.

Where will Ross Barkley start the new Premier League season? The big clubs in the hunt for the Premier League title have all been pretty busy spending the cash already and online betting site Coral have taken a look at reigning champions Manchester City to see how they will respond to the big cash which has been splashed around so far from the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea.

Coral have slapped a price of 2/1 that Everton midfielder Ross Barkley will start the season with Man City and are also offering 6/4 on Radamel Falcao being at the Etihad before the close of the summer transfer window. Online betting site Paddy Power have put Manchester City at 6/4 to be Barkley’s next club (with no set time-frame), while Manchester United are 3/1 and Chelsea are 4/1 to land the young England starlet.

Manchester City so far have completed deals for goalkeeper Willy, right-back Bacary Sagna and midfielder Fernando, and they are reported to be closing in on Porto’s French centre-back Eliaquim Mangala.

Manchester City v West Ham Betting Preview
It is all in their own control now. The citizens only need to avoid defeat in this one to be crowned the kings of England for the second time in three years. The stats all point to there being little drama on championship Sunday and it should be party time at the Etihad.

Manchester City v West Ham Betting Tips:
The Citizens have won their last four on the bounce. It has been good enough form, combined with Liverpool throwing away points, to put them in touching distance of the Premier League title. They head to the weekend with a two point lead over Liverpool, and because of a far superior goal difference to that of the Reds, Manuel Pellegrini’s men can get out of this one with a draw and still be crowned champions. They reached the 100 goals for the season mark during the week in a 4-0 home win over Aston Villa. Edin Dzeko was the man again, netting another brace. He is looking great value 8/11 in the anytime goalscorer market, especially with Sergio Aguero an injury doubt. Dzeko has really stepped up to be the man in their title chase, and Man City should have enough to open up the Hammers defence, there’s enough depth to get this done.

The stats, as mentioned, heavily favour Man City, who have lost just one of their last 13 matches in the Premier League against West Ham (W9 D3). Not only that, the Citizens have only lost two of their 25 on home turf against the Hammers. So even if you took the importance of the league title off this game, then punters would still be flocking to back City for a comfortable win in this fixture. Interestingly, of the six games that Man City have lost in the league this season, four of them have happened on a Sunday. Is there likely to be another Sunday twist to give Liverpool hope? Probably not. No one has won more home points (49) than Man City have this season and they are unbeaten in their last six at the Etihad. Back on April 13th, when City lost at Anfield and followed that up with a draw at the Etihad against Sunderland, Man City looked second best in the title race. But it has all swung back in their favour, and with having scored three or more goals in three of their last four matches, it should all turn out rosy for Pellegrini’s men.

Are West Ham likely to offer much in this one? They aren’t in great form, certainly not good enough to suggest that they will cause an upset at the Etihad. The Hammers have taken four defeats in their last five league games, a four match losing streak being snapped last weekend with a home win over Tottenham. Goals have been hard to come by for the Londoners having only netted four in their last five games, and on the road they have averaged just 0.8 per game. West Ham have only put four away wins on the board all season, and away from Upton Park they have lost four of their last five. Andy Carroll has a decent record against City, having scored 5 Premier LEague goals against them. He is trading at a price of 5/1 in the anytime goalscorer market, West Ham’s shortest priced option. Says a lot about their chances. With only two wins and 20 defeats in their last 25 visits to the Citizens, the Londoners aren’t going to have a lot of backing.

It should be all City. West Ham aren’t carrying the form to trouble them. They took a while to break down Villa in the week and that may happen again against the Hammers. They should get there in the end though and as there is no value in the outright market so back them to win to nil for a decent price of even money.
