Acca prime time at Bet365 on opening weekend of season

Premier League Betting
There is nothing like flying out of the gate with a nice acca win on the opening weekend of a new Premier League season. Teams are fresh and plenty of money has been splashed out over the summer transfer market and the excitement levels, expectation and optimism are through the roof. Not too surprisingly there are some heavy odds-on favourites at bet365 across some of the matches and Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City, Liverpool, Spurs and Man Utd are all under even money to win their respective opening fixtures. Arsenal are favourites to land a home win over Leicester on Friday night, the opening game of the new Premier League season. They have won their last ten on the bounce on home soil against the Foxes, so it’s easy to see why they have gained strong support in this one. Plus they have Alexandre Lacazaette and the hotshot has been trimmed this week to win the Premier League Golden Boot. With the Foxes struggling so badly on the road last season, this could be a good opener for the Gunners. Chelsea, who are the reigning champions will be happy enough with their home fixture against Burnley. The Clarets have seen key players depart the club in the summer like Andre Gray and there hasn’t been anything going back the other way, so the Blues should find themselves comfortable in his one and perhaps it will be a fine old day for Alvaro Morata to open his Premier League account after his move from Real Madrid. Chelsea are 1/4 odds on to win this one. Manchester City, with all their big summer signings, head off to the south coast late on Saturday evening to take on Brighton. The newly promoted Seagulls would have liked an easier introduction into the Premier League no doubt, but they have a tough game here. Manchester City are 17/10 outright favourites to win the Premier League at Bet365 and they are odds on at 4/11 to go and beat the Seagulls. Manchester City looks far stronger starting this season than they did last term. Tottenham doesn't seem to be slightly bothered about not having matched their title rivals in spending over the summer. They appear to be happy with their stock and they head out on the road on the opening weekend to face the newly promoted Newcastle. This is a tough game for the Magpies against a Spurs side who can destroy teams when they hit the ground running. Then Manchester United and Liverpool are the other odds-on favourites for this weekend’s opening action, but they perhaps both look a little more vulnerable. Liverpool have won four of their last nine away games in the top flight and have a tough opener at Vicarage Road against Watford. The Hornets appear to have sharpened up very well over the summer under new boss Marco Silva and should be very competitive. Manchester United have won just one of their last four at Old Trafford against West Ham, who they entertain on Sunday in the final game of the first weekend. The Hammers have brought in Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic to boost their attack too, so they may be able to heap a bit of pressure on the Red Devils.

Man City still trading strong at Bet365 for Premier League title

Premier League Betting
The new season of the Premier League is right here now with the big kick off on the weekend, and it gets an early start on Friday night for Arsenal v Leicester. There have been some big money deals splashed around by the big clubs as they not only prepare of course for an assault on the Premier League title but also because of UEFA Champions League and Europa League interests as well. While Manchester United made a lot of big waves with their summer signing of Romelu Lukaku, it is Manchester City who perhaps have gained the biggest advantage in the off season. The Citizens clearly mean business this term and the squad is looking more like a Pep Guardiola type of squad. They have boosted their goalkeeping by bringing in Brazilian Ederson and have added Kyle Walker, Danilo and Benjamin Mendy to their squad and everyone seems to be pretty hyped up about the arrival of midfield Bernardo Silva too. With the goal scoring competition between Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus likely to go down, Man City look in pretty good shape. Manchester City are 17/10 at Bet365 to win the Premier League and punters have really gotten behind them. It is surprising that Manchester United have not done any better than sitting as joint 7/2 favourites ahead of the new season with reigning champions Chelsea. The Blues have not actually added to the depth of their squad this season over the summer and with the extra exertions of UEFA Champions League games, they aren’t likely going to be as dominant this time around under Antonio Conte on the domestic front. Manchester United will look to the goals of Romelu Lukaku and they have brought Nemanja Matic from Chelsea, who many thinks could be the final piece of the puzzle for Jose Mourinho. But punters haven’t been overly keen on them and indeed, on the day that they signed Matic, they drifted a little bit in the Premier League outright winner market. But it is those three who are the frontrunners for the title if the odds are right. No-one else is trading under double figures. Tottenham are 10/1 at Bet365 to land the title and after a summer of not spending any money to add to a squad which wasn’t good enough to win the title last year seems strange. But the pressure is perhaps mounting and in a bit of a change of heart, boss Mauricio Pochettino is now hopeful of getting some signings in before the end of the window. With Arsenal and Liverpool sitting at an even bigger price of 12/1 apiece it is pretty clear who punters are leaning on this season in the Premier League title race. They are putting a lot of trust in Guardiola and the fantastic signings he has made over the summer.

Brighton v Manchester City Betting Tips

Coming up from the Championship, you would like to ease your way into the new season. But no chance of that for Brighton who steps into battle with this season’s Premier League Champions elect, Man City. Brighton have drafted some new faces into the club, but most of it is unproven quality at this level and they really haven’t added the kind of quality that they may ultimately need to call upon to stay afloat. There is a need for them to do more shopping before the transfer window slams shut because they may well have 34-year-old Glenn Murray as their main striker option this term and while he was prolific in the second tier last term, he can’t be relied upon up in the big step up. The Seagulls were a brilliant home side in the Championship last season, but they are heavy underdogs for this opening fixture on home soil. Both teams not to score is odds on at 7/10 with Coral which shows how little of an impact that the home side are expected to have in this one. Manchester City have Sergio Aguero at 4/6 and Gabriel Jesus at 5/6 in the anytime goalscorer market. There could be a good friendly rivalry between the two of them this season and that should only benefit the Citizens. Man City have been busy in the transfer market, shaking up their back line drastically and the arrival of Bernardo Silva could be one of the signings of the summer for them. City have more of a Guardiola feel about them. There has been a keeper upgrade too with Ederson coming in to replace Claudio Bravo. In the Coral correct score market, you have a price of 11/2 on a Manchester City 2-0 win. The last time that Brighton and City met in the league was in the old Division 2 back in 1989. The only game since then was a Carling Cup draw in 2008. So nothing really to look at there and over 2.5 goals at Coral is a quote of 4/7 as City will be expected to come out firing in this one to send a message to their title rivals.

Brighton v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 1/3, Draw 4/1, Brighton 8/1.

Brighton v Manchester City Predictions

Man City to win: The Citizens will be fresh and raring to go and the Brighton defence is probably going to have a busy afternoon. There is so much quality running through the City side now, who have shored up their defence that they can be trusted to get the win and worth a flutter to win to nil as well.

The new challenge for the Premier League title will be back on soon. Chelsea head back into the season as the defending champions and they will be hoping that a shrewd piece of summer transfer business in bringing in Alvaro Morata will help them get close to holding onto the silverware. It will be difficult because they will have European games to contend with this season, whereas they didn’t last term. It is Manchester City who are outright favourites to capture the title this season having been busy in the summer transfer market. Pep Guardiola's men are going to be a huge threat to the rest of the title contenders, which includes their rivals Manchester United. The Red Devils have bolstered their squad over the summer too, notably with Romelu Lukaku brought in to deliver the goals.

Manchester City v Tottenham Predictions & Betting Odds – International Champions Cup 29th July 2017

Football Betting
Manchester City v Tottenham Betting Preview - International Champions Cup 29th July These two will be hoping to be in the Premier League title race in the forthcoming season and they will be battling it out in the International Champions Cup on Thursday. This will be the last game in the tournament for both of the English clubs and they will want to come away with a win for no other reason than a feel good factor. While it doesn’t matter who wins, there could be plenty of goals flying around in what will probably be a wide open fixture. One of the top football betting products around is Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance which they offer on all matches listed in their sportsbook. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook. Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy other top features like each-way goalscorer odds, live streams and cash out options.

Manchester City v Tottenham Betting Tips

A nice pre-season friendly between two Premier League sides who will be hoping to battle it out for the Premier League crown next season. During the summer, Manchester City bought right back Kyle Walker from Spurs, so that will be an interesting side note if Walker faces his old club. You look at this fixture and expect some goals to be flying around and over 2.5 goals at bet365 will bring in a price of 4/5. Three of the last four Premier League meetings between the two sides have gone over the mark so you would expect some action at both ends in this one. Sergio Aguero is 5/4 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market with Gabriel Jesus at 11/8. You can’t see defences being on top in this one, certainly not City’s which is a work in progress. Watch the goalscorer markets live in-play at bet356 to dig around for some extra value. Spurs showed some attacking class in their opening 4-2 win in the International champions Cup over PSG, just an example of what they can do on the day. Both City and Spurs are obviously still a bit rusty going into this one and both teams to score at bet365 will bring in a price of 8/13. For Spurs, Harry Kane is an 11/8 punt in the anytime goalscorer market and he was on target against PSG in that opener. For the Lilywhites, who faced Italian side Roma in midweek for their second game in the tournament, this should be a good workout against next season's Premier League champions elect. It may be a good chance to prove themselves even though it is just a friendly of course. Up in the bet365 correct score market, the 1-1 draw is the shortest priced option at 6/1 but a 2-1 victory for the Lilywhites is a 10/1 punt. The London side will at least be able to send out a much more settled defence than that of the Citizens.

Manchester City v Tottenham Betting Odds

Man City 13/10, Spurs 15/8, Draw 5/2

Manchester City v Tottenham Predictions

Tottenham to win: The Manchester City back line is still a work in progress for Pep Guardiola after the summer signings. Tottenham can send out the more settled side of the two of them and they are worth backing to get the win in a match where both teams hit the back of the net.

Manchester City v Real Madrid Predictions & Betting Odds – International Champions Cup 27th July 2017

Manchester City
Manchester City v Real Madrid Betting Preview - International Champions Cup 27th July Real Madrid certainly got a good look at their squad in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United on the weekend. They next take on Manchester City in the International Champions Cup out in the USA. It’s hard to know what kind of line ups and what kind of outcome to expect from this. The Citizens looked pretty match rusty during a defeat in their opening friendly of the summer against Manchester United recently. Take advantage of some fantastic football betting products available at online betting site Bet365. For starters, there is their great 0-0 bore draw insurance available on all matches which offers great protection on your pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wagers.

Manchester City v Real Madrid Betting Tips

It is a busy summer for Manchester City in the transfer market as they haven’t been shy with the cash and have been rebuilding and reshaping their squad to Pep Guardiola’s liking. That could be a worry for the rest of the Premier League. The Citizens were sluggish and rusty in a defeat against Manchester United in the International Champions Cup last weekend, but that isn’t something that they are going to be bothered about. That was only their first outing of the pre-season whereas United had played a couple of pre-season friendlies before that. City weren’t fielding a strong side either but in the anytime goalscorer market for this one, Sergio Aguero is a price of 5/4 for the Citizens with Gabriel Jesus at 11/8. You would imagine there is room for goals in this one and over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 4/9. Real Madrid played out a 1-1 draw with Manchester United in their opening International Champions Cup. They didn’t put out their strongest side and Cristiano Ronaldo is taking a summer break so isn’t taking part. Real Madrid lost the penalty shoot out, a really low-quality one, against United. Karim Benzema is an even money option in the anytime goalscorer market. Obviously, this preseason stuff isn’t taken too seriously by anyone and both teams to score at bet365 fetches a price of 4/9. Following this one, Man City go onto face Premier League rivals Tottenham in Nashville on the weekend, while Real Madrid will be looking forward to a nice pre-season friendly El Classica against Barcelona. They’ll probably be saving themselves for that one you would imagine.

Manchester City v Real Madrid Betting Odds

Real Madrid even money, Draw 13/5, Man City 5/2

Manchester City v Real Madrid Predictions

Real Madrid to win: The Citizens looked really rusty in that defeat against Man Utd and it is worth backing the Spaniards to come through this. Particularly if they are a little more interested than they were against the Red Devils. Both teams to score, Real to win.

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
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.
