Sky Bet Special Price Boost pays out £1.6million

Skybet
Did you miss out on Sky Bet’s Special Price Boost on the weekend? This weekly offer which the bookmaker runs was struck for the third time in nine days and Sunday’s big offer cost the operator a whopping £1.6million. The three selections which had been boosted on the final Premier League round of matches for the season saw an 11/2 price slapped on a Liverpool, Arsenal and West Ham treble. With the Gunners and the Reds up in their games, the treble came up thanks to the Hammers’ Andre Ayew’s strike in the 72nd minute of their game at Burnley. That secured a 2-1 win for the Irons at Turf Moor while Liverpool ran out 3-0 home winners over Middlesbrough, while ten-man Arsenal held on at home against Everton 3-1. Ultimately that win for the Gunners was in vain as they missed out on a Champions League spot for next season. So any punters who had backed the 11/2 enhanced odds (from 4/1) in the Sky Bet Price Boost ended the season on a real high. The win for punters came hot on the heels of last weekend's 8/1 success and the midweek 4/1 payout. Sky Bet’s head of public relations Sandro Di Michele said: "We’ve paid out on these Price Boosts many, many times this season and they’ve proved a real hit with punters. "There are plenty of big matches to come with the FA Cup and Champions League finals among them, so I’d suggest punters look out for more of our offers in those." Each week you can claim a free £5 bet with bookmaker SkyBet. This is because they run their great Sky Bet Club which is open to all punters. After opening an account with the bookmaker (where you can claim a free £20 bet bonus) you can go and opt into the Sky Bet Club. There, just make £25 worth of qualifying bets each week before 11.59:59 pm on Sunday evening and you will be credited with a free £5 bet to use!

Chelsea 11/4 to retain Premier League title in 2017/18

Conte (Chelsea)
Antonio Conte’s first season in England went pretty well then. The Italian took Chelsea to the Premier League title at the first attempt and did it with a couple of games to spare as well. With the Premier League 2016/17 title secured for them already then, punters have already started looking forward to next season’s campaign which should be a tighter battle than the two-horse race that it was this term. Chelsea are a quote of 11/4 at betting site Bet365 to retain their title next season but it is Manchester City who are 9/4 favourites. It is likely that Pep Guardiola is going to go on a big shopping spree in the summer to bolster the Citizens, particularly in defence, because that is where their challenge this season really fell down. They will be expected to be on a much different level next season and with Chelsea also being involved in the Champions League too next term, the title race is probably going to be closer. The Champions League can serve as a big distraction and Chelsea themselves will need to add some strength in depth to their squad over the summer and Conte will have the spending funds to do just that. Chelsea are 11/4 to not finish in next season’s top four in the Premier League (which shows how competitive it is) while they are a 2/7 odds-on to get in. The signings and the extra workload involved from European games are going to be something for the Blues to juggle next season and should naturally have an impact in their league dominance. Manchester United are right there with Chelsea at a price of 10/3 in Premier League 2018 Winners betting. One way or another United will be involved in Europe next season again and Mourinho will have some serious shopping to do as well in the summer. The thing about Mourinho is that he has a pretty solid record in his second season with clubs. At both Porto and Inter Milan, Mourinho secured a domestic league title and Champions League titles his second season, while he won La Liga with Real Madrid and the Premier League twice in different spells with Chelsea. Tottenham, who have come close to landing the title in the last two seasons are a big 8/1 price to get their hands on the title. They have a very settled, talented young side and don’t need much tweaking other than some better back-up for Harry Kane. They are a big price to land the title, pretty much because they are playing their home games at Wembley next season and punters will be wondering what it is that has kept them from winning silverware so far with just a good set up. Liverpool are further adrift at a price of 10/1 to land the title, because they will be juggling European action as well, followed by Arsenal who are the longest priced option of the big six in the league at 12/1 to land the win. The Gunners are as big as 14/1 at places like Sky Bet to win the Premier League 2018. Will Arsene Wenger still be in charge? If so, what kind of players will the usually frugal manager make to his squad to add some steel? If he’s not, what kind of identity will they take on under the new manager? Will Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez stay? There are too many variables for punters to back them with confidence to turn next season into a title-winning season.

Sky Bet offer Everton, Stoke and West Ham 7/1 enhanced odds all to win

Skybet
Sky Bet’s popular Soccer Special Price boost this weekend brings in a tempting offer for punters again. This weekend they have boosted the price of Everton, Stoke and West Ham all to win from 5/1 up to 7/1 for their customers. Each of them having winnable looking matches and this should be a good tempter. West Ham are the only away side in the treble but they head out to the Stadium of Light to face Sunderland, who are pretty much down and out at this stage of the game and after the Hammers put a pressure-relieving win on the board last weekend, they will fancy their chances of an away win. As for Everton, they are just a home banker at the moment and they get an easy looking game at home to Burnley, who are still winless out on the road this season in the top flight. Given the amount of goals Everton have produced at home this is likely to be a routine game for them. Then rounding out the treble is Stoke who get a home game against Hull. The Tigers have taken one point on the road under new boss Marco Silva and should be there for the taking. Each week you can claim a free £5 bet with bookmaker SkyBet.

Sky Bet punter land over £20k from a £5 acca

Skybet
There was a huge winner this week on Tuesday night for a punter over at Sky Bet. They managed to land a £20k windfall from a £5 football acca. The customer had played a £5 treble on both teams scoring in both halves in Oxford v Bolton (18/1), Rochdale v Millwall (14/1) and Chester v Macclesfield (14/1). At half time at the Kassam Stadium between Oxford and Bolton, the visitors were already 2-1 and they won the second half as well by the exact same scoreline for a 4-2 victory. The game at Spotland between Rochdale and Millwall finished in a thrilling 3-3 tie and both results for the punter came with over 10 minute remaining, so there was no nail-biting going in those. However, there was a bit of a sweat on in the Chester v Macclesfield game as the visitors hadn’t netted in the second half with just five minutes left. But then up popped Ollie Norburn to not only land the visitors three points in a 3-2 win, but to give the punter twenty thousand reasons to celebrate. On Tuesday night, 15 of the 16 matches being placed in domestic English competition saw both teams score in. Each week you can claim a free £5 bet with bookmaker SkyBet.

Sky Bet offer Chelsea, Everton & Leicester enhanced odds all to win at 9/1

Skybet
This weekend’s Saturday price boost on a treble from Sky Bet will be a real tempter for punters at such a big price. They are boosting Chelsea, Everton and Leicester all to win their Saturday 3pm kick offs in the top flight, available now at a 9/1 price up from 7/1. Premier League leaders Chelsea hit the road to go to Stoke and with the Blues having won eight of their last eleven away games in all competitions and having lost just two previous Premier League games against Stoke, Antonio Conte’s men go as favourites at the Bet365 Stadium to roll off another three points. Everton are bang in form at the moment they have put together a five match winning streak on home soil, with clean sheets in four of those. With them having scored at least two goals in each of their last five home games, they should have more than enough firepower to take down the relegation-threatened Hull. Then Leicester, who will be full of confidence after making the UEFA Champions League quarter finals in the week, round out the treble. They head to West Ham and with the Irons having won just one of their last five on home soil, the resurgent Foxes, may well take this opportunity to land their first league away win of the season.
