Premier League Betting

Swansea v Manchester United Betting Preview

It has been a somewhat positive start to the season for both of these, neither having tasted defeat so far from their opening three games of the season. Will something give at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday? United have looked off-colour a bit this season while Swansea have looked pretty strong and positive pushing forward so far, so will they be able to follow up on their 2-1 home win over the Red Devils from last term?

This is televised so Betfred’s Double Delight/Hat Trick Heaven first goalscorer promotion is on it. back a successful first goalscorer in the game and if that player goes on to score a second in the match then you will be paid at double odds. If they go and score a hattrick after opening the scoring then they will earn you treble odds! This also applies to Newcastle v Arsenal, Spurs v Everton and Southampton v Norwich from the Premier League this weekend.

Swansea v Manchester United Betting Tips

The Welsh outfit are actually running in a bit of decent form against the Red Devils. They won both league meetings against the Red Devils last term which snapped an eight match winless streak against the Old Trafford crew in the league. Swansea have won three of the last four clashes with United in all competitions and there is a trend running there because those three wins were all by a 2-1 scoreline. If you fancy that repeating itself again then you are looking at tasty 11/1 odds with Betfred in the correct score market. Bafetimbi Gomis has started the season with a real bang and he is a 9/4 anytime goalscorer quote.

Gomis has scored eight goals in his last nine Premier League outings so certainly has the form going to warrant a poke. If he does net at the Liberty on Sunday then he would become the first ever Swansea player to score in the opening four games of a Premier League season. It’s been great form from him and part of the positive attitude that the Swans have brought to the new season. They took a 2-0 win over Newcastle in their only home fixture so far this season but haven’t won back to back Premier League home matches since November 2014. Still, they are running unbeaten so far this season, have won four of their last ten at the Liberty and should be good for at least a point.

Wayne Rooney silenced his doubters with a hat trick against Club Brugges in midweek but he has still failed to score in any of his last nine Premier League matches. He has gone on a ten match scoreless streak before, but that was while he was at Everton. United have failed to find the back of the net in three of their last five Premier League road games, but their defence has looked tight so far having allowed just the five shots against them, which is fewer than any other top flight side has managed this term. Under 2.5 goals is trading at a 3/4 quote with Betfred for the game, reasonable considering United have only scored two league goals this term (one an own goal by Spurs). United have taken just one win in their last three at the Liberty so a tricky fixture for them.

Manchester United 5/4, Draw 23/10, Swansea 11/5

Swansea v Manchester United Predictions

It would be pretty reasonable to expect a low scoring draw in this one. United are tight defensively but haven’t impressed going forward, while the Swans look in good shape and should more than match the Red Devils. A share of the spoils is worth a punt.

William Hill

If you haven’t heard about William Hill’s superb Super Sub feature this season, then now would be the time to find out about it. If you back a player to score in a match but they get hauled off before the end, usually that would mean the end of your chances of you winning on them. However, with William Hill’s Super Sub feature, if your player get substituted in a game, then your bet on them rolls onto the player who replaces him, at the original price.

This happened recently in United’s UEFA Champions League Play Off game against Bruges. Rooney was substituted for Marouane Fellaini and then Fellaini went on to score in the match and therefore any bets on Rooney were paid out!

Great feature and Wayne Rooney is the centre of William Hill’s weekend enhanced odds promotion. He is even money to score against Newcastle on Saturday lunchtime  but punters at William Hill can get double the odds on Rooney scoring if they enter the William Hill £50 million Prem Predictor first.

The William Hill £50 million Prem Predictor is well worth a shot and it costs just £2 per entry (and you can have up to 250 of them). For each entry that you play you predict how the final Premier League standings will look this season in an attempt to land that huge prize money on offer.

The William Hill £50 million Prem Predictor closes its door for entries at 3 pm on Saturday, August 22nd. So very little time left to take part, so get in quickly while you can and double up the offer with the double enhanced odds on Wayne Rooney scoring against Newcastle.

Premier League Betting

Manchester United v Newcastle Betting Preview

Manchester United are going to have to show a lot more from an attacking perspective if they want to get themselves in the title race. Two 1-0 wins over Spurs and Aston Villa is what they have to show for their games so far, and one of those goals was an own goal from Tottenham. They haven’t gotten things going yet, but at least they have won, something which Newcastle have yet to manage this season.

Shortly after this one finishes, the curtain will come down on the entry period for the William Hill £50 Million Prem Predictor contest. Entries have to be in by 3 pm on Saturday, August 22nd in the great promotion where you can land yourself a life changing sum of money if you can predict the finals standings of this season’s Premier League. It costs just a £2 stake to enter and you can enter up to 250 times. Open an account with William Hill and earn a free £20 bet when you bet £10 as well!

Manchester United v Newcastle Betting Tips

It doesn’t seem  particularly pertinent to be complaining about a side who has won their opening two matches of the season. But frankly Manchester United have looked poor. They have offered so little going forward, managing just one shot on target in their 1-0 win over Spurs (needing an own goal from the Lilywhites) on the opening day of the season and then stumbled past Aston Villa by the same scoreline, lone striker Wayne Rooney having just one touch inside the opposition box all game. Something’s not right with the balance of tactics there, that’s for sure and there is no support coming from midfield and Rooney is better off in the number ten role. But Rooney stays up top it would seem and he is a 5/6 anytime goalscorer quote.

Rooney does have a good record against Newcastle, having scored 12 goals and assisted even more in 20 Premier League appearances against the Magpies. United have a pretty decent current record running against Newcastle as well. They have suffered just the one defeat in the last seven against the Magpies and across those seven matches, the Red Devils have netted seventeen goals against the Tyneside club. United have won 15 of their last 19 Premier League matches at Old Trafford as well and stretching back their record, they have lost just two of their last 25 top flight matches against the Magpies.

The Magpies actually came out of the blocks with a lot of positivity under Steve McClaren and earned a 2-2 home draw against Southampton. But then all of that was quickly washed away as they lost 2-0 at Swansea on the weekend with Magpies defender Daryl Janmaat seeing red for persistent fouling. Old Trafford is not a place which they like travelling too as they have managed to take just the one victory from their 21 previous visits there in the Premier League (D7 L13). The Magpies have looked a bit light up front against, with Papiss Cisse a 3/1 anytime goalscorer for this one, and they have scored just two goals in their last four Premier League games against United. Newcastle have lost their last seven Premier League away games.

Manchester United v Newcastle Betting Odds

Manchester United 1/3, Draw 4/1, Newcastle 8/1

Manchester United v Newcastle Predictions

Nothing too much seems to have changed for Newcastle and they will probably struggle to get into the match at Old Trafford. That is even with Manchester United looking a bit toothless themselves. The Red Devils do have more to offer though and have a good record to bank against the Magpies and are at least winning matches. Home win, low scoring game.

Champions League

Manchester United v Club Brugge Betting Preview

Manchester United couldn’t have been more happy with the draw they got for the UEFA Champions League Play Off draw. This should be something of a stroll for them even if they haven’t looked all that good at the start of the new season. There doesn’t appear to be too much risk of an upset here and the Red Devils should join Chelsea, Man City and Arsenal in the group stage.

There is a great insurance offer running on all UEFA Champions League matches at online betting site Unibet. The bookie will refund losing correct score, half time/full time and last goalscorer bets if there is a goal scored after the 90th minute. Great insurance in case a late goal ruins a bet. This applies to all Premier League and La Liga matches as well. There is a risk free £20 bet on offer as a welcome bonus for new customers too.

Manchester United v Club Brugge Betting Tips

This should be a comfortable opening for Manchester united as they make their way back potentially to UEFA Champions League group stage action. To get there they must go through Belgian side Brugge, which doesn’t look like too much of an obstacle for them to get over. Manchester United have won all three of their previous home games against Belgian opponents and across those three games, United have put up an 18-1 aggregate score. Pretty impressive but you wouldn’t be expecting a goal fest out of Untied at the moment as they look really poor going forward and have only banked 1-0 wins over Aston Villa and Spurs so far this season. A Man Utd 2-0 Correct Score is 11/2 with Unibet on this one.

The Red Devils have never ever been eliminated in a UEFA Champions League or European Cup qualifying tie. A pretty rich history there from eight previous ties. In fact they have totalled sixteen qualifying matches before and have only suffered one defeat in that run and that was a long time ago too, all the way back on the road at Zalaegerszeg in the 2002/03 qualifying round. Sure not many people remember that. Wayne Rooney has looked out of sorts as the lone striker for United this season, but even with that said, he looks more likely to score than anyone in a red shirt right now. Rooney is 8/11 to net in the match while United are even money to win to nil.

It wasn’t a great start to the season for FC Brugge as they crumbled to three straight defeats on the bounce. Bit of a shocker really but have improved to record W3 D1 in their last four. In the last qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League they lost 2-1 on the road at Panathinaikos before turning it around with a 3-0 win back in Belgium. However, that road defeat looks important because they have so far recorded just a D1 L3 record in their four away games played away from home in all competitions this season. FC Bruges also have a terrible record in England, failing to win on any of their previous eleven trips there. They are also winless in six matches (home and away) against English teams since a 1-0 first-leg success over Chelsea in the 1994/95 UEFA Cup Winners’ quarter-finals (they lost 2-0 in the return).

Manchester United v Club Brugge Betting Odds

Manchester United 1/4, Draw 5/1, Club Brugge 9/1

Manchester United v Club Brugge Predictions

Games like this should really be routine for Louis van Gaal’s men especially if they are serious about getting to the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League this season. The Red Devils aren’t clicking right now at all, but given the poor away record this season of the visitors and their shocking record in England, United should take a win in a low scoring game.

In this rare Friday night fixture in the Premier League, title hopefuls Manchester United travel to the Midlands to try and build on their 1-0 win over Spurs on the opening day.

But Villa also banked  1-0 win to open with as Tim Sherwood’s men took a victory at Bournemouth, which probably upset a few punters. With Villa having won just one of their last 39 Premier League matches against Manchester United, it’s likely to end up again with the three points going to the Red Devils.

Great offer and with Rooney and Depay really the only two doing anything offensively against Spurs on the weekend, there should be a lot of value in return here.

Boylesports

Friday night will see a rare Premier League match up, but will it produce a rare win for Aston Villa over the Red Devils as well? The Villans have won just one of the last 39 Premier League matches against the Old Trafford outfit and are winless in their last 20 home matches against the Red Devils.

It all points to an away victory for Manchester United at a price of 4/6, but Villa surprised many on the opening weekend by taking a 1-0 victory away at Bournemouth. So will Tim Sherwood’s men be able to cause an upset, or at least hang on for a point? Villa are out at 5/1 to win the match, with the draw at 14/5.

If Aston Villa lead anytime against Manchester United on Friday night, then Boylesports will refund all losing first/last/anytime goalscorer, correct score, and scorecast bets as a free bet up the value of £25. New customers registering an account can also earn themselves a £50 free bet as a welcome bonus.

Bet Victor

The weekend’s Premier League action starts with a rare Friday night matchup. The action comes from Villa Park in Aston Villa v Manchester United betting, as two of the winners from the opening weekend of the new season square off against each other. Manchester United picked up a 1-0 home win over Tottenham on Saturday, while Aston Villa took a win by the same scoreline at the newly promoted Bournemouth.

It can be said that neither were particularly convincing in their wins but it is Manchester United who are trading as 4/6 favorites (an industry best price) to pick up the three points on Friday night. The draw is at 11/4 and a win for Villa a long way out at 5/1.

When you start looking at the head to head record between the two clubs in recent times then you see how much of a banker Manchester United should actually be in the game. They are unbeaten on their last 20 visits to Villa Park and are currently streaking on an eleven match unbeaten run against the Villains (home and away).

United have won six of the last seven meetings between the two clubs in the Premier League (D1) and in each of those six wins in that sequence, they scored at least three goals. So the favouritism on them looks pretty solid.

If Manchester United fail to win the match, Bet Victor will refund losing correct score, first goalscorer, last goalscorer, anytime goalscorer, half time/full time, scorecast & spincast bets as a free bet up to £10! Great coverage for the match and you can earn up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus when joining.

Premier League Betting

Aston Villa v Manchester United Betting Preview

Both sides banked a 1-0 win in their respective opening matches on Saturday, the Red Devils taking the narrow home win over Spurs, whole Villa survived a stiff test at the newly promoted Bournemouth. So a good chance to build on that positive start and Villa will be looking at their poor record against United and will be thinking that they are long overdue for a victory against United.

Bet Victor have gone with a big promotion for this one. If United fail to win the match, then the bookmaker will refund losing correct score, first goalscorer, last goalscorer, anytime goalscorer, half time/full time, scorecast & spincast bets as a free bet up to £10! Great coverage for the match and you can earn up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus when joining.

Aston Villa v Manchester United Betting Tips

A positive result for Villa then on the opening day of the season when many thought that they may fall against the positive and enterprising Bournemouth. But Tim Sherwood’s men dug in there and got the three points, but they were second best in possession and Bournemouth were left to rue some big missed chances. The points for Villa were won by summer signing Rudy Gestede, making an immediate impact. He is a 12/5 quote in the anytime goalscorer market at Bet Victor and his physical presence could trouble the United back line. Gestede has now scored 20 headed goals since the start of 2013/14, five more than anyone else in the top four English tiers.

Villa have a poor record against Manchester United. In fact, poor doesn’t really describe it. They haven’t beaten Manchester United in the Premier League since a 2009 victory, which is an eleven-match winless streak against the Red Devils. You have to go back a further decade to 1999 to find their last win on home soil against them in any competition, Villa taking a 3-0 win in the 1999 League Cup on that occasion. That’s twenty home matches since then that Villa have failed to beat United in. Three of the last six at Villa Park between them have been tied including last season’s 1-1 draw. A 1-1 Correct Score is trading at 7/1 with Bet Victor.

Neither were particularly threatening up front on the weekend, so under 2.5 goals maybe the way to go for this at a 5/6 quote. United beat Spurs 1-0 at Old Trafford, but there were plenty of question marks about them. United look a bit short of genuine pace to drive at teams from midfield and Wayne Rooney looks better when he isn’t the out and out striker. Rooney has three goals in United’s last three against Villa and he is a 23/20 anytime goalscorer shot. Apart from him, no-one really raised an attacking threat against Spurs to warrant backing. United won just six of their away games last season under Van Gaal and while they go as favourites here, an easy victory doesn’t look likely.

Aston Villa v Manchester United Betting Odds

Manchester United 8/13, Draw 11/4, Aston Villa 9/2

Aston Villa v Manchester United Predictions

It will probably end up being a pretty tight, low scoring matchup. United weren’t too convincing and Villa aren’t afraid of a bit of a hard work. There could be value in running with a draw in the match, and in going under 2.5 goals.

Premier League Betting

Arsenal have gone on the massive drift in the Sky Bet Premier League outright winner market. The Gunners were sunk in a shock 2-0 home defeat on Sunday against West Ham, a side who they had beaten in each of their last nine Premier League outings. It was indeed a shock result and one that took all the shine off Arsenal’s pre-season optimism.

The Gunners had been 9/2 pre-season to win the Premier League title, having received some strong backing after beating Chelsea in the Community Shield. After Chelsea had drawn their home opener against Swansea on Saturday evening, Arsenal were in to a price of 7/2.

However, Skybet decided to oppose the Gunners heavily by slapping a price of 11/2 on them to win the Premier League outright this season, the biggest prize on offer across the industry.

Sky Bet’s Chris Spicer said: “Arsenal were noticeably off the pace and while they’ll improve, giving Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and likely Manchester City an early advantage rates a disastrous way to begin the new season.

“There was real optimism pre-season, especially following the signing of Petr Cech, but his nightmare debut and Olivier Giroud’s performance are real concerns. We’re happy to lay them.”

Chelsea, who could only manage a home draw against Swansea after keeper Thibaut Courtois had been sent off, drifted to 9/4 Saturday evening, but were back into 15/8 in Premier League outright betting on Sunday. Manchester United are at 4/1, while all the major players left Liverpool untouched out at 28/1.

Manchester United v Tottenham Betting Stats

Tottenham may be some value to lay in this one because they have a decent record against the Red Devils. They have lost just one of their last six against United in the top flight and have won two of their last three at Old Trafford in the league too. The Lilywhites are 6/1 to take the win, opposing Manchester United’s 8/13 favouritism.

Harry Kane won 24 points for Spurs last season, more than any other player did for their club. Kane is trading at 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market.

There is likely to be goals in the game at Old Trafford as six of the last eight top flight clashes between the two clubs have gone over 2.5 goals which is a price of 5/6 at Coral for Saturday’s clash.

Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney has a great scoring record against the Lilywhites. The England man has scored 10 goals in 15 league appearances against Spurs and he has also scored more goals in opening matches than any other player currently active in the league (6). Has to be worth a punt and he is at even money in the anytime goalscorer market.

United’s defeat at Old Trafford last season against Swansea in their opening game was their first ever opening home defeat in the Premier League. Incidentally, they are only side to have even won the Premier League title after losing their opening fixture, having pulled off the feat three times before in their history.
