Betting weekend preview (Premier League)

Bet on this Weekend's Sport

Despite the season being only three weeks old, this weekend's Premiership fixtures are the last before a two week international break for the World Cup qualifiers. Chelsea and Liverpool will aim to cement their place at the top of the Premiership, while Arsenal and Spurs look to kick start their season. Meanwhile at Sandown, as the flat season draws to a close they play host to the Solario Stakes at 2:35pm on Saturday.

Arsenal v Newcastle, Saturday, Setanta Sports 1, 5:30pm

Arsenal and Newcastle return from mid-week cup duty as they meet at the Emirates on Saturday. Both sides were victors in their respective ties, although Arsenal were much more comfortable in victory.

The Gunners 4-0 win over Steve McLaren's FC Twente completed a 6-0 aggregate win as they eased into the group stages of the Champions League. However, this impressive European form has not yet translated to the Premiership, as they followed up a slim 1-0 win over new boys West Brom with a 1-0 defeat to Fulham last week. Newcastle survived a scare in the Carling Cup as they needed extra time to overcome a Coventry side that twice came from behind. It was once again Michael Owen who sealed the game for Keegan's side as they were taken all the way by Chris Coleman's Championship outfit.

Arsenal are 4/9 favourites with BGbet to get their Premiership campaign back on track, and with Newcastle looking to continue their promising start with a win, Centrebet are 8/1 for a Toon victory.

If Theo Walcott scores at anytime during Arsenal v Newcastle, BGbet will refund all losing first goalscorer stakes on the match.

Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur, Sunday, Sky Sports 1, 1:30pm

Chelsea will be aiming for their third straight win to open the new campaign as they host a deflated Tottenham side looking for their first points of what was supposed to be a break through year. Phil Scolari will be urging his team to put in a performance similar to the one that overwhelmed Portsmouth on the opening day. However, they were less inspired in their next game against Wigan as they scraped a 1-0 win, similar to those seen in the Avram Grant era. Although disappointing Chelsea showed they can win even when playing poorly, a skill Spurs need to learn if they are to truly challenge the top four. They have lacked a crucial cutting edge as Dimitar Berbatov's absence has left them light up front, and his public spat with the club has left the team in turmoil. Consecutive 2-1 defeats to Middlesbrough and Sunderland has left Spurs hovering above the bottom three, and Spurs fans worried about the prospect of another season of unfulfilled promise.

VC Bet make Chelsea the 2/5 favourites to win at Stamford Bridge, and Betwithred price up Tottenham at 13/2 to record their first victory of the season.

If Florent Malouda scores at anytime during Chelsea v Tottenham, BGbet will refund all losing first goalscorer stakes on the match.

Aston Villa v Liverpool, Sunday, Sky Sports 1, 4:00pm

Fresh from their midweek European exploits, Villa and Liverpool meet at Villa Park where Gareth Barry may find himself a target for both sets of fans. Following his public courting of Liverpool this summer that angered many Villa fans, Barry this week pledged to stay at Villa till at least the end of the season. Villa will be hoping their early season scoring spree of seven goals in two games continues, although they will want to tighten up at the back having also conceded five goals in that time. Three of those goals came in the defeat to Stoke last week, and it will be that inconsistency Martin O'Neill will look to eradicate as they aim to challenge for a Champions League spot. Liverpool made the most of their Champions League place as they qualified for the group stages on Wednesday. However, they made hard work of it, leaving it until the last minute of extra time to see off Belgian underdogs Standard Liege as Dirk Kuyt's late goal ensured their place in the competition for the fifth straight year.

Aston Villa are the 2/1 underdogs with Centrebet , while Betwithred make Liverpool slight favourites at 11/10.

If Aston Villa v Liverpool finishes 0-0 BGbet will refund all losing correct score bets on that game.

If Gareth Barry scores at anytime during Aston Villa v Liverpool, BGbet will refund all losing first goalscorer stakes on the match.

Celtic v Rangers, Sunday, Setanta Sports 1, 12:30pm

The Old Firm square up for the first time this season at Celtic Park on Sunday, as Celtic look to defend their championship for the fourth consecutive year. Home advantage played a big part in last year's derby games, as the home side were triumphant in all four games. Two of those games were at Celtic Park over eleven days in April, and were the turning point in the championship as the home side opened up a five point gap following consecutive victories. Celtic left it late in the first of those victories, as Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink scored the winner in injury time as Celtic won 2-1 to close the gap to then leaders Rangers to a single point. Celtic carried the momentum of those victories through to the end of the season to claim the title again, and Rangers will be keen to start this season better than they finished the last one. Rangers have Kenny Miller returning for his seventh Old Firm game, having played for both sides of the Glasgow divide, scoring for Celtic against the Gers in 2006. He can expect a lively reception form both sets of fans in what is billed as the worlds most fierce derby rivalry.

Celtic are the Evens favourites with VC Bet, although Rangers are as big as 11/5 with BGbet, in what is usually a tight game.

If Aiden McGeady scores at anytime during Celtic v Rangers, BGbet will refund all losing first goalscorer stakes on the match.

Weekend Racing from Sandown, Live on Channel 4, Saturday, 2:00pm

This weekend's big race is the Solario Stakes on Saturday from Sandown (2.35pm).

The Cheka is the clear favourite in what is an otherwise open race, thanks to his win at Ascot. That was an impressive display on debut for the 2 year old, and associates will be hoping for a repeat performance. There are four previous winning jockeys in the race, including last year's winner Jimmy Fortune aboard Parisian Art.

Premiership Betting - Matchday 34 Preview (Apr 12-14)

As the season builds to a climax, the online Premiership betting market is looking like a re-run of last year?s campaign, when Chelsea tried in vain to chase down Man Utd. The Red Devils? draw last weekend at the Riverside certainly gives the Blues hope, and should Arsenal get a result at Old Trafford on Sunday, the Premier League online betting market could be turned on its head. Be part of the action with a bet at

Gunners? Visit to Old Trafford Last Chance to Catch United

Arsenal go to Old Trafford on Sunday looking to bridge the six point gap that separates them from the Premiership leaders. With only five games remaining, the Gunners simply have to win at the Theatre of Dreams to retain any realistic chance of catching Man Utd. The Londoners inflicted one of just two defeats the Red Devils experienced at home last season, courtesy of a late Emmanuel Adebayor strike, but their recent league form doesn?t suggest they are capable of a similar result. Arsenal have won just one of their last seven Premier League fixtures, including five stalemates, and their heads will down after dramatic Champions League exit at Anfield on Tuesday night.

In such low spirits they are unlikely to overturn a Man Utd side who in stark contrast, are peaking at the right time, winning their last three home Premiership games by aggregate of 9-0. Cristiano Ronaldo is on fire, scoring his 27th league goal at the Riverside, and though the 2-2 draw against Boro should be considered a slip-up, they cruised through to the last four of the Champions League on Wednesday resting Ronaldo, Rooney, and Scholes leaving them fresh for this key game. price Man Utd favourites 1.893 (-0.5)* with Arsenal 2.040 (+0.5)* ? a market priced to less than 102%.

Chelsea Must Maintain Pressure on Red Devils

By the time Chelsea run out at Stamford Bridge on Monday to face Wigan, they?ll know by how much they are playing catch-up to Premiership leaders, Man Utd, who entertain Arsenal on Sunday. Blues? coach, Avram Grant, will be hoping for a favour from their London rivals. Should Arsenal win at Old Trafford, then a Chelsea win over the ?Latics would bring the sides level on points, with the Red Devils still to visit the Bridge. This game is one of four home games among Chelsea?s five remaining fixtures, which is certainly in their favour, given their amazing 79 game unbeaten league record at Stamford Bridge.

Wigan?s record against the ?big four? underlines heavy favouritism toward Chelsea. In three Premiership seasons they have taken just two points from all meetings with Arsenal, Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea (who have a 100% record in encounters). Wigan?s relegation struggle was given a huge boost last weekend with a 2-0 home win over Birmingham, but boss, Steve Bruce, may be pragmatic enough to see upcoming games against Spurs and Reading, as providing much more realistic chances for ensuring survival than here. After Chelsea?s Champions League win over Fenerbahce on Tuesday night, they can fully focus on the Premiership, with their European dreams still alive. price Chelsea favourites 1.826 (-1.5)* with Wigan 2.110 (+1.5).

Chelsea vs Arsenal betting preview

Chelsea v Arsenal - Live on Sky Sports 1, k/o 4:00pm

The second big game of Super Sunday sees Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge aiming to do what no other team has managed in the last four years - win. The Gunners were the last team to inflict a home defeat on The Blues, and must match that feat to keep the pressure on United at the top. However, Chelsea will go all out for the win that would blow the title race wide open. Chelsea have been in better form in the past few weeks, having won two of the last four games. Arsenal on the other hand have drawn their last four Premiership games on the trot, seeing their three point advantage turn into a three point deficit behind Man Utd. This match will be a tight and anxious affair that could go either way, Arsenal have good record of surprising when the odds are against them. Chelsea's home form has been tremendous in recent years, having remained unbeaten in four years, a statistic that they will be resolute in defending against the Gunners. With both teams title challenge on the line in this match, neither team can afford to sit back and be content with a draw. With Chelsea's home advantage, the Blues have been priced as favourites at 5/4 (VC Bet), meanwhile Arsenal have been priced at 11/5 by Better to keep the pressure on United.

Premiership Betting - Matchday 28 Preview (Mar 1-2)

The first silverware of the English season was settled last weekend, as Spurs ended a nine year trophy drought, winning the League Cup. Tottenham?s players partied hard after the extra-time win over Chelsea, but then it was back to work, as the Premiership is far from over. There are eleven more weeks of Premiership action for punters to bet on, which means elven more reasons to get up to 60% better Premiership betting odds at

Gunners to Win Title for Eduardo

Arsenal players have vowed to maintain their position at the top of the Premiership table, and win the title for striker, Eduardo, who suffered a horrible broken leg on Saturday at St.Andrews. The Gunners made that objective a little bit harder for themselves, by conceding in the 90th minute to draw 2-2 with Birmingham. The home side had played 86 minutes with ten men, following Martin Taylor?s red card for the tackle on Eduardo, who now faces nine months on the sidelines.

Arsene Wenger now goes into Saturday?s home game with Aston Villa, one striker down, and with Tuesday?s visit to the San Siro to consider. Arsenal are unbeaten at the Emirates Stadium this season, but Villa have lost just once in eleven league games. The concern for the Villans is that their run without a clean sheet stretches back even further ? over 13 games. With Arsenal scoring 31 times at home so far this term, this should be an entertaining game, but as Villa haven?t beaten the Londoners in 19 attempts, make Arsenal favourites 1.826 (-0.5 & -1)* with Aston Villa 2.110 (+0.5 & +1)* - a market priced to only 102%.

United Look for Five More Against Fulham

Manchester United coasted to victory last weekend, beating sorry Newcastle 5-1 at St.James? Park. Rooney and Ronaldo grabbed two goals each, as the Red Devils returned to winning ways after the disappointment of their defeat in the Manchester Derby. United are now just three points behind Arsenal, and will expect to maintain the pressure with a win over struggling Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Fulham, second from bottom, are struggling badly for form, winning just one of their last seventeen games, despite changing manager at the very end of last year. Roy Hodgson is a vastly experienced coach, but he has his work cut out with the Cottagers. Despite the return of influential midfielder, Jimmy Bullard, from injury, Fulham are struggling for goals, drawing blanks in five of their last six games. Brian McBride comes back into the reckoning for this game, and though he will add aerial threat, it is hard to see the West Londoners getting anything out of this game, though United may be distracted by Tuesday?s Champions League tie. price Man Utd favourites 1.901 (-1 & -1.5)* with Fulham 2.030 (+1 & +1.5)*.
