Online betting site Paddy Power have a promotion running for Manchester City v Aston Villa betting on Wednesday night. This is going to be City’s chance to climb back to the top of the pile and put themselves fully in the driving seat to land the title on the final day of the season. Liverpool’s defensive collapse at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace on Monday night, has given City a huge advantage now.They only need to take four points from their remaining two games, which are both at home against Aston Villa and then West Ham on championship Sunday. Three points against the Villains will see them have one hand firmly on the title. Edin Dzeko netted himself a brace for the Citizens as Manuel Pellegrini's men came through what would appear to be their last big test of the season, a 3-2 win away at Everton. The big man has been weighing in with some important goals as City have kept themselves in the title hunt and he is the focus of attention in a money back special offer from Paddy Power. If Edin Dzeko nets the last goal of the game against Aston Villa, then Paddy Power will refund lost bets on the First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct score and Scorecast single bets on the game. New customers registering an account with online betting site Paddy Power can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Man City still need help to win the league, as they will hoping for a Chelsea win at Anfield on Sunday. They still have to keep winning games themselves, but if that scenario plays out over the weekend, then the citizens will still have a shot at the title, most likely coming down to goal difference, and City hold the upper hand over Liverpool in that department.Palace have really upped their game under Pulis and this may not be an easy afternoon for the Citizens. The Citizens have only won two of their last 11 league games against Palace at Selhurst Park too. Of course though City have firepower in their team and they may as well throw the kitchen sink at this one. Sergio Aguero is back, a major boost for Manuel Pellegrini, so there should be goals. The Eagles have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last 11 league meetings with the Citizens.
The big Premier League clash of the weekend of course, is Liverpool v Chelsea betting at Anfield. But if the two sides can’t be separated over the ninety minutes, then punters at Ladbrokes can be take advantage of some fantastic insurance on offer.Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea head north on Sunday, resigned to the fact that the Premier League title is probably out of their reach, even if they were to bag themselves the three points. While a win for Chelsea would delight Manchester City, Mourinho isn’t going to care about anyone other than himself. The Special One has already said that he wants to rest players for this game, because they have to face Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night in the second leg of their semi final. That is looking far more important of a game than a trip to Liverpool right now. Liverpool too have been immense at Anfield this season, already amassing the joint highest home points haul in the Premier League this term. They have won their last six league matches in a row there and the last time they failed to win in front of their home support, was back on January 18th against Aston Villa. Liverpool have an attack which is firing on all cylinders and the threat of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge will challenge Chelsea’s weakened defence, which is missing John Terry and Petr Cech. Liverpool are running as 4/6 favourites to take the three points on Sunday. As for Chelsea, who are likely to be under strength, they are at 4/1. Ladbrokes are committed to refunding all losing Win-Draw-Win, correct score, first goalscorer and scorecast wagers up to £25 as a free bet if the Merseyside meeting ends up all square. What does this mean? It means that you can plow some money on the home side here, who are the strong favourites, with the knowledge that if they get frustrated into a draw, then you would get your lost stake back as a free bet anyway. The first goalscorer market is going to be highly active for this one too, as Raheem Sterling is looking overpriced at 10/1 considering that he has opened the scoring in Liverpool's last two games against Man City and Norwich. Luis Suarez of course is the outright favourite in the market, trading at 7/2 to bag the first goal of the game, with Daniel Sturridge at 5/1. In the Correct Score market, there could be a leaning towards a 2-1 result for Liverpool. The game at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season was won by Chelsea by that scoreline. But Liverpool have won two of their last five fixtures by that very score, and Chelsea lost 2-1 at Sunderland last weekend too. So you could put two and two together and run at a Sterling to score first/Liverpool win 2-1 scorecast for a meaty 50/1 with Ladbrokes.

Online betting site Betfair are running their Cashback Extra promotion for Barcelona v Real Madrid betting in the final of the Copa del Rey. The two giants come together at the Mestalla in Valencia on Wednesday night for the honours and the game will be missing one of its biggest stars, Cristiano Ronaldo.The Real Madrid star is out with his hamstring problem, and despite there not looking as if there is too much to split the two sides, will the advantage have been handed to Barcelona? The Catalans won both of the La Liga meetings this season, and both sides are still in the hunt for the league title, but both still playing catch up to Atletico Madrid there. So this is a massive chance to put a piece of silverware in the cabinet, and Real Madrid won the last clash between them, when they last met in the final back in 2011 at the Mestalla. It was a goal by Cristiano Ronaldo in the 103rd minute, the game going to extra time, that settled the title 1-0 for Los Merengues. Barcelona are the competition's most successful side, having won it 26 times before in history, their last title coming in 2012. Real Madrid have totalled 18 Copa del Rey titles before, their last triumph coming in that 2011 final. So how much will Carlo Ancelotti’s men be missing Ronaldo on the night? It could force a lot of impetus on former Spurs man Gareth Bale. Barcelona have a lot to prove after getting knocked out to the Champions League quarter finals by Atletico Madrid, and then losing ground in a 1-0 defeat at Grenada in the league on the weekend. So they need to bounce back big here and they are trading as 7/5 favourites with Betfair in the outright winner market. Real Madrid are at 15/8, with the draw at 90 minutes at 5/2. At online betting site Betfair for your Barcelona v Real Madrid betting, you can pick your own cash-back refund trigger.
