Paddy Power offer Premier League Enhanced Football Treble

Paddy Power
The final day of the Premier League season will see the action up and down the country on Sunday, May 21st. There’s not a great deal at stake for most of the games, but there is still the major issue of the final two top-four spots to be settled. There is a three-way fight for those remaining two spots in the top-four between Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City. Liverpool and Manchester City just have to win their respective games in order to lock in a top-four finish, while Arsenal needs some help from someone. The Gunners will have to beat Everton at the Emirates and then hope that either Liverpool fails to win or Man City lose. The Citizens are out on the road at the out-of-form Watford while Liverpool are at home against the already-relegated Middlesbrough. Other featured games include Tottenham going out on the road to face the relegated Hull while Leicester will be looking to sign off in style at home as they take on Bournemouth. Paddy Power are running a big enhanced odds treble offer on Tottenham, Leicester and Arsenal all to win on Sunday. There is a maximum of one bet per customer of £20 online and the odds on the wager will start at 7/2 and increase at increments up to a potential maximum of 8/1!

Coral offer 50/1 enhanced odds on goal to be scored in Premier League on Sunday

Coral
The final action of the 2016/17 Premier League season will be contested on Sunday. There’s not a lot at stake for anyone up and down the country really. All of the relegation spots have been confirmed, while Chelsea have already won the title. The Blues will be having a party afternoon at Stamford Bridge as they play host to bottom side Sunderland. The real action comes in the race for a top-four finish, where the final two spots up for grabs are between Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal. The Citizens and the Reds just need to win their final games to ensure that they are the ones playing Champions League football next season, but if someone was to slip up, the Gunners could sneak in the back door. Arsenal are at home against Everton, while Liverpool get an easy-looking home fixture against the relegated Middlesbrough. So that is the only thing to be decided on Sunday in the English top flight, but with so little at stake up and down the country, it’s likely that there could be plenty of goals around.

Manchester City v West Brom Predictions & Betting Odds – 16th May 2017

Manchester City
Manchester City v West Brom Betting Preview - Premier League 16th May 8.00pm The Citizens still have some work to do to secure a top-four finish and another three points at home would help their cause on Tuesday night. The Citizens banked a home win over Leicester on the weekend and this is not a time to take their foot of the gas as they duel Liverpool and Arsenal for a top four finish. West Brom may not offer the stiffest of opposition as they are on a long winless streak at the moment having lost against Chelsea on Friday night.

Manchester City v West Brom Betting Tips

Manchester City really need the three points in this one at home because it would pretty much guarantee that they get a top four finish and therefore Champions League football next season. City beat Leicester 2-1 at home on the weekend and they just have a little more work to do to get to their goal. A loss here and a win for Arsenal on Tuesday night heaps some pressure on the Citizens. But City are heavy favourites for the win in this one and they are unbeaten on home soil in the Premier League since a 3-1 loss against Chelsea back on December 3rd. They have won three of their last four league games on home soil now (D1) and they have scored seven goals in their last two home fixtures in the top flight. Overall the Citizens have won seven and lost none of their last 11 Premier League matches at the Etihad Stadium; they last went 12 unbeaten on home soil in December 2012 (37-game run). Over 2.5 goals at Bet365 is a quote of 4/11 and City would probably do most of the goals if that were to happen. Manchester City have scored 31 goals in their last ten games against the Baggies. In the Bet365 correct score market, a Man City 3-0 victory is running at a price of 6/1 and should offer some value. Gabriel Jesus was on target on the weekend again as the Citizens beat Leicester, and he is a 1/2 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market. Sergio Aguero is a 4/9 poke and Aguero has scored four goals and assisted another two in his four previous home Premier League games against West Brom. Gabriel Jesus has been directly involved in seven goals in six Premier League starts (scoring five and assisting two) now. Impressive stuff from him, having scored five goals from seven shots on target this season. City’s overall home form this season is W10 D7 L1. The Baggies can finish no higher than eighth in the league, the position they are in going into this fixture. They aren’t carrying form right now though as they have taken just the one point from their last six Premier League games now and are tanking. They want the end of the season to come quickly. Their away form hasn’t been good either this term with just a W3 D7 L7 record having been posted away from the Hawthorns and they haven't won on the road since a win at Southampton on December 31st (D4 L3). Baggies boss Tony Pulis have gone up against Man City 16 times before and has produced just a W1 D4 L11 record from that. 47.5% of West Brom’s Premier League goals this season have been scored via set-pieces (exc. penalties), a league-high share. They have also scored 15 goals from corners; another league-high. West Brom have scored in just one of their last seven league games now and a Man City to win to nil bet at bet365 is a price of 8/11. They have scored in just one of their last four away games too.

Manchester City v West Brom Betting Odds

Man City 2/11, Draw 6/1, West Brom 14/1

Manchester City v West Brom Predictions

Man City home Win: City have to perform in this one and it is worth backing them to get the victory on the board. They are scoring well at the moment and the Baggies have fallen badly out of form. City to win and both teams to score looks value.

Manchester City v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 13th May 2017

Manchester City
Manchester City v Leicester Betting Preview - Premier League 13th May 12.30pm The Citizens can take a step closer to a top four finish this season by collecting three points at home against Leicester on the weekend. Pep Guardiola’s men fired five past Crystal palace at the Etihad last weekend and will be looking for more of the same in this one. City need a strong finish, but Leicester are back in winning form and may give the citizens a tough afternoon in what should be a very entertaining and open game. Take advantage of some fantastic football betting products available at online betting site Bet365.

Manchester City v Leicester Betting Tips

This is probably going to be a very entertaining game. The Citizens are just about at the finish line in the race for a top four finish and they smashed Crystal Palace 5-0 at the Etihad last weekend. City have gone W3 D2 in their last five league games and have suffered just one loss since losing heavily at Everton back in mid-January. At home, City have gone W6 D4 L0 in their last ten, so don't’ look likely to lose this one, and they have lost just once at home this season in the Premier League. When they went to Leicester earlier in the season they lost 4-2 and City have actually won just two of their last seven against the Foxes in the top flight (D2 L3). City though have won their last four home Premier League games against reigning champions – each of the last two were by a three-goal margin and over 2.5 goals at Bet365 is a price of 5/6, while city to win by a 3-goal margin is a price of 4/1. Sergio Aguero needs two more goals to reach 20 in the Premier League this season and is 8/13 in the anytime goalscorer market with Gabriel Jesus at 8/15. The Foxes are looking for their third straight league win against Manchester City in the Premier League, scoring at least three goals in their last two wins against them.. It’s been 50 years since they put three consecutive wins on the board against them though. The Foxes banked a win at West Brom in their last away game in the top flight so are looking to record back-to-back away wins for the first time this season. Leicester's overall away form this season reads W2 D4 L12 and have gone W2 D1 L2 in their last five on the road. Jamie Vardy has scored seven times in his last 10 Premier League games and is at 11/5 in the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market and his only Premier League hat-trick came in the reverse fixture against Manchester City in December. Leicester have picked up five victories in their last six top-flight trips to Manchester City (L1) so actually boast a great record and should be competitive in this. A victory for the Foxes, who have the worst defensive record in the current top ten, brings them closer to a top ten finish.

Manchester City v Leicester Betting Odds

Man City 2/9, Draw 19/4, Leicester 12/1

Manchester City v Leicester Predictions

Man City home win: Side with the Citizens to put a win on the board in this one because they were on point last weekend against Palace. Leicester's defence isn’t anything to write home about and they should be there for the taking in a high-scoring game.

Manchester City v Crystal Palace Predictions & Betting Odds – 6th May 2017

Manchester City
Manchester City v Crystal Palace Betting Preview - Premier League 6th May 12.30pm Manchester City have three of their remaining games this season to play out at the Etihad, including this Saturday lunchtime affair. However, they have found wins hard to come by lately because of their defence and with Crystal Palace scoring well enough on the road this season, the Eagles will turn up and give the Citizens a real battle. The 100% Euro Soccer bonus gives punters the chance to earn extra at Bet365 from successful accumulator bets. Just land a winning acca of three or more selections on selected competitions and markets and earn up to a 100% win bonus!

Manchester City v Crystal Palace Betting Tips

Manchester City need to put a strong finish on the table down the final stretch. They get three home games on the bounce now. They have slipped to just the two wins in their last eight league games (D5 L1) so they aren’t running in top gear at the moment and that is a lot of points they have dropped with all of those drawn games. The Citizens are unbeaten in nine at home now in the league, but three of their last four there have been drawn. City though have won eight of their last nine Premier League games against Crystal Palace (L1), with their only defeat in this run coming in April 2015 (1-2 at Selhurst Park). Manchester City are on a six-match unbeaten streak at home against Palace in the Premier League. Both teams to score at Bet365 is a price of 7/10 and City have scored twelve goals in their last three home games against the Eagles. In the correct score market, a Man City 3-1 win is a price of 10/1. In the anytime goalscorer market Gabriel Jesus at 8/15 and he’ll have to take a starring role with Aguero injured. Palace have done pretty well for goals out on the road this season in the top flight, netting 26 times and Christian Benteke is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option for them in this one. He has not scored a league goal against City before though. Palace aren’t quite safe at the moment, but will probably do enough to keep themselves in the top flight. They have actually won three of their last four games away from home in the league (L1) and they scored two goals in each of those away victories. Over 2.5 goals at Bet36 is running at a price of 4/11, but the Eagles have failed to score in their last three Premier League games at the Etihad and Man City to win to nil is a bold bet at 11/8. Crystal Palace could actually become only the fourth team to win away at each of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City in a Premier League season and they have won more points (19) in their last 10 Premier League games than Man City have (17).

Manchester City v Crystal Palace Betting Odds

Man City 2.7, Draw 11/2, Crystal Palace 10/1

Manchester City v Crystal Palace Predictions

Man City Home Win: The Citizens are not having an easy time of things at the moment, but with Palace falling at home to Burnley last weekend, you would have to swing with the home side in this one. Both teams to score, but City to find a way to win.

Middlesbrough v Manchester City Predictions & Betting Odds – 30th April 2017

Manchester City
Middlesbrough v Manchester City Betting Preview - Premier League 30th April 2.05pm After their midweek success at home against Sunderland, what can Boro do about handling the attacking power of Manchester City on Sunday afternoon? They will need to have their defence on point because Manchester City will be hungry to get points to drive them towards that precious top four finish this season in the Premier League. There is good accumulator insurance to be snapped up at William Hill. Place a football acca of six or more selections on the selected markets and if your wager loses by only the one leg then you will get your lost stake refunded from the bookmaker. The maximum free bet refund is £50 and this applies only to the 90 minutes Match Result, Both teams To Score and Match Result & Both Teams To Score markets. This is available on every team in every league at any price in any combination. Register an account with online betting site William Hill and earn a free £20 bet as a welcome bonus from the bookie.

Middlesbrough v Manchester City Betting Tips

Boro managed to give themselves a huge boost of survival when they dug out a 1-0 home win over bottom side Sunderland in midweek. It was the worst game of the season in the entire Premier League in terms of quality and excitement. Boro won’t care, it was three points which leaves them six from safety with four games to go. Too much for them to do still? Boro’s win over the Black Cats is their only victory in their last seventeen league games. Boro have gone W1 D4 L4 in their last nine Premier League home game, so backing them for a win is tough in this one. Boro did actually claim a 1-1 draw at Man City earlier in the campaign and under 2.5 goals at William Hill a price of 6/4 which may be worth a flutter. Boro have some decent form against City actually because they have lost only one of their 10 Premier League matches at home to Manchester City (W7 D2 L1). They have failed to score in three of their last five against the Citizens in all competitions though. Along with that 1-1 draw at home against Middlesbrough this season, the Citizens did go to the Riverside in the FA Cup and record a victory. City had to settle for a midweek 0-0 draw with Manchester United in the league, a frustrating night for them because they dominated the game and just couldn’t score. Which is the story of their season pretty much. Still, they are on course for a top-four finish and Pep Guardiola’s men have lost just one of their last twelve league games (W6 D5) and the lone defeat came out at Chelsea during that sequence. They have managed to pick up back to back clean sheets in the top flight and Man City to win to nil at William Hill is running at a price of 11/10. In the anytime goalscorer market, Sergio Aguero is a 4/7 market favourite, with Gabriel Jesus running at 5/6. Aguero has scored in both games against Boro this season. Will City have the craft to open up the decent defence of Boro? The Citizens have won three of their last five meetings with Middlesbrough in all competitions (D1 L1).

Middlesbrough v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 2/7, Draw 4/1, Middlesbrough 10/1

Middlesbrough v Manchester City Predictions

Man City Away Win: City have been a good side or on the road this season and against the low-scoring Boro, they shouldn’t have too many troubles putting the win on the board at all.

Manchester Derby 27th April 2017 odds & prediction

Martial (Manchester United)
A game of huge importance in the context of a top four finish for both of these this season and this is one Manchester derby that neither are going to want to lose. Things are tight in the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League and for this rare Thursday night Premier League game, Man City are starting 4th and just the one point and one place above their city rivals. So if the Citizens can make the most of the home advantage then they will give themselves a pretty nice cushion at this stage of the game. William Hill’s Super Sub offer is a great way to cover your anytime goalscorer wager on a match. This offer only applies to selected live matches and if the player you have backed in the anytime goalscorer market is substituted and has not scored, then the bet rolls over onto the player who has come on to replace him. If that replacement player scores in the match then you will get paid out at the original price on your initial selection! This is a tremendous promotion from the bookmaker and when you open an account with them you can earn a £20 free bet as a welcome bonus from the bookmaker!

Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man City 3/4, Draw 27/10, Man Utd 7/2 Manchester City collected a 2-1 win at Old Trafford earlier in the season but that is just the one win in their last five against their big rivals now. So they aren’t running in great head to head form against the Red Devils and United won this corresponding fixture last season 1-0. Four of the last six games between these two in all competitions have seen two goals or less and under 2.5 goals for this meeting at William Hill is a price of even money. It’s not too often you see a Thursday fixture in the top flight, and actually, the last time these two sides met on a Thursday in the Premier League was in November 1994, with Manchester United winning 5-0 thanks to an Andrei Kanchelskis hat-trick. We aren't likely to see a scoreline of that magnitude for this meeting because there is so much at stake for these two that it will probably be a pretty tight affair. City are unbeaten in their last five on home soil, and they have only lost one of their 15 home league games this season, but only neighbours Man Utd (9) have drawn more home games than them in the top flight this season (6). So the draw in the match outright does look to have some big appeal at 27/10 with William Hill in this game. The margins are likely going to be pretty tight in this one. Manchester City saw key players go off in their epic duel with Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-final on the weekend, which they ended up losing in extra time. But then Manchester United suffered two big blows of Marcos Rojo and in particular Zlatan Ibrahimovic, picking up season-ending injuries. The loss of Zlatan could be huge in the context of Manchester United edging their way into the top four because he has been carrying goalscoring responsibilities so strongly on his shoulders. So United will need Marcus Rashford (a 12/5 anytime goalscorer option) to continue his form. But on the other side, Manchester City have Sergio Aguero who has found the back of the net in five successive Premier League appearances now and he could equal his best such-run in the competition with a goal in this match (six appearances in a row between April-May 2016). He has scoring form too against United, with eight goals in 10 competitive appearances against the Red Devils. The Citizens are going to need a big game from him, if he is fit enough to go, and maybe it will be something special from him which wins the day. Aguero is 5/6 William Hill anytime goalscorer outright favourite for this game. A share of the points would keep both going along well enough in the race for a top-four finish this season. United are on a big 23 match unbeaten streak of form in the Premier League now and aren’t going to be easy to beat at all, while Manchester City have lost just one of their last eleven games played in the top flight and they have suffered just the one home defeat all season. In the battle of Pep Guardiola v Jose Mourinho, Guardiola has lost just four of his 18 previous head to heads with Mourinho (W8 D6) but lost the last encounter with the Special One in the EFL Cup this season at Old Trafford. But Mourinho has failed to win any of his last four Premier League games against City (D2 L2).

Manchester Derby Prediction

Draw: It is so hard to pick a winner out of this one and the draw has some big appeal in the match outright. Looking beyond that then, a 1-1 correct score at William hill for 13/2 is probably going to have some big appeal for punters.

Manchester City v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 27th April 2017

Manchester City - Manchester United
Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Preview - Premier League 27th April 8.00pm A Manchester derby in midweek then and there is a huge importance riding on this one as well. This is a battle for a top-four finish in the league this season. City occupies 4th right now but are only one point and one place ahead of their city rivals. That should add some extra spice to this contest and it is a game which neither can afford to lose. William Hill’s Super Sub offer is a great way to cover your anytime goalscorer wager on a match. This offer only applies to selected live matches and if the player you have backed in the anytime goalscorer market is substituted and has not scored, then the bet rolls over onto the player who has come on to replace him.

Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Tips

This would be a big win for Manchester City on home soil if they can dig it out. They would be breathing a little easier in the race for a top-four finish this season. They are in fourth place going into this Manchester derby and are just the one place and one point above their neighbours, United. Manchester City have suffered just the one defeat in their last eleven Premier League games now (W6 D4) and so they are not going to be easy to beat in this one. That having been said, it’s been a while since they really played well at home, because teams just sit back against them and City have lacked a creative spark up top. City have won only two of their last five home games (D3) but have remained unbeaten at least in that stretch. Overall this season, City have gone W8 D6 L1 at home in the league. Earlier in the season, Man City took a 2-1 win at Old Trafford and a repeat Man City 2-1 correct score at William Hill fetches a price of 8/1. Being out of the FA Cup and the Champions League, Manchester City can go full force at locking in a top four league finish now. It would be a disaster if they didn’t. Sergio Aguero is in a bit of form with a five-match scoring streak in the Premier League at the moment as and Aguero is the outright favourite at 10/3 in the William Hill First Goalscorer market for this one. Aguero has scored eight goals in 10 competitive appearances for Manchester City against Manchester United. Games have been pretty tight between these two lately and four of the last six have seen less than two goals. Under 2.5 goals at William Hill for this one is a price of even money. There is a lot at stake in this one and neither are going to want to lose. Pep Guardiola could become just the fourth manager to win both home and away Manchester derbies in a debut top-flight season after John Bentley, Sven-Göran Eriksson and Manuel Pellegrini. Manchester United are now 23 games unbeaten in the Premier League and would equal their longest ever unbeaten record if they avoid defeat at the Etihad on Thursday. They are right up there in contention for a top four finish now and in the semi-finals of the Europa League. They have lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the rest of the season through injury, which is a massive blow for them, so it is all focus on Marcus Rashford who is 12/5 in the anytime goalscorer market. Both teams to score at William Hill in this one is a price of 7/10. Jose Mourinho has failed to win any of his last four Premier League games against Manchester City (D2 L2) and he has won just four of his 18 meetings with Pep Guardiola (D6 L8). Mourinho won the last duel between them, a dour 1-0 home win in the EFL Cup this season at OT. United have lost just one of their last five against City in all competitions, (W3 D1 L1) and have three clean sheets in their last four against their rivals. The Red Devils are on a four-match winning streak on the road with just one goal conceded. They will make life difficult for the Citizens.

Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man City Home Win: The Citizens can take advantage of an under-strength Manchester United side in this one. Pep Guardiola’s men now have no distractions left for the season and have to step on the gas to get into the Champions League next term.

Arsenal v Manchester City FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 23rd April 2017

Manchester City
Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Preview - FA Cup 23rd April 2.00pm With the Gunners struggling to make it into the top four in the Premier League this season, they will be targeting the FA Cup hard to put a bit of gloss on what has otherwise been a very difficult season for them. Going equally hard will be City as Pep Guardiola will want to try and close in on his first piece of silverware in England. This should be a wide open and entertaining fixture with the winner playing either Spurs or Chelsea in the Final. Each week you can claim a free £5 bet with bookmaker SkyBet.

Arsenal v Manchester City FA Cup Betting Tips

This is an important game for both of these because the FA Cup represents the last chance of getting some silverware in the cabinet this season. Arsenal are struggling to make it into the top four of the Premier League this season which would be costly for them. So the big question is, will Arsene Wenger sacrifice this game to go hard in the final league games? It has to be tempting. Arsenal have gone W3 D1 L2 in their last six games and they have failed to be Manchester City in any of the last three meetings too. The Gunners took a 2-2 home draw against the Citizens this season in the league but lost at the Etihad against them. But looking at the bigger picture in the head to head, the Gunners have lost just one of their last eight played against Man City in all competitions (W3 D4). This one to go over 2.5 goals at SkyBet is a price of 8/11 and that has happened in six of the last seven clashes between these two. In each of the last six meetings between Man City and Arsenal, either one or both has scored exactly two goals. In the Sky Bet Correct Score market, there is a quote of 15/2 on a Man City 2-1 and 10/1 on a City 2-0. An Arsenal 2-1 score is a big 12/1 price. You would have to put some money on both teams scoring in this one which is a price of 4/9 because neither have a particularly stable defence. Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine clashes between the two clubs. There's very little FA Cup history between them as Arsenal hold a W2 L1 record against City in the competition with no drawn games. In the anytime goalscorer market, the Gunners have Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud both at a price of 7/4 to get on the scoresheet. What will Wenger do? Manchester City have been a bit hit and miss with just a W2 D2 L2 record in all competitions recently and that run of games includes their 2-2 draw with Arsenal in the Premier League. They had started to look a little more defensively sound but that has fallen apart again as they have picked up only one clean sheet in their last six games played. They have been scoring well enough though lately and have rattled off six goals in their last two games played. Sergio Aguero is an 8/11 option for this one with the impressive Leroy Sane at 8/5. Manchester City have had a good FA Cup run this season with fifteen goals scored in five games, getting past three fellow Premier League sides and Championship promotion hopefuls Huddersfield as well. As for Arsenal, they have beaten non-league opposition in the last two rounds. Can Pep Guardiola get a step closer to his first piece of English silverware?
