Manchester City v Liverpool 19/03/17

Manchester City v Liverpool betting preview

The title race might be all but over but the battle to get into the Premier League top four is red hot right now with both Manchester City and Liverpool well in the mix.

These sides will clash this Sunday with the former currently one point ahead of the latter and with a game in hand.

Pep Guardiola’s Sky Blues will be smarting from their midweek Champions League exit but can they take out their frustrations on Jurgen Klopp’s visitors?

Betting site Ladbrokes make Man City the 20/21 (1.95) favourites to see off their rivals with Liverpool the 11/4 (3.75) outsiders and the draw priced at 13/5 (3.60).

And if you’re looking to turn a profit then it could pay to side with the team from Anfield.

Liverpool have won their last four in the league against City, including last season’s 4-1 hammering at the Etihad Stadium.

But it’s their most recent form that should concern the hosts.

Klopp’s outfit have found their groove again, winning three of their last four, with victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal featuring in that sequence.

City have lost just once in their last 16 Premier League home games though so the 17/20 (1.85) for Liverpool/Draw in the Double Chance market is also worth considering as a value saver.

Elsewhere, Ladbrokes’ top gambling site is offering a big 12/1 (13.0) about the in-form Georginio Wijnaldum scoring first, much like he did in his side’s 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture.

For the hosts, Sergio Aguero is 9/10 (1.90) to score at any time with Leroy Sane available at bigger odds of 2/1 (3.0) in the same market.

Meanwhile, it’s 12/1 (13.0) for a repeat of that 1-0 scoreline in Liverpool’s favour although if you fancy more goalmouth action then the 6/4 (2.50) for 4+ goals is appealing.

Chelsea v Manchester United 13/03/17

Chelsea v Manchester United betting preview

The Emirates FA Cup takes centre stage in the next few days with Monday night’s quarter-final tie between Chelsea and Manchester United headlining.

Both teams would have fancied their chances of going all the way in this year’s competition but the draw hasn’t done either any favours.

Betting site Ladbrokes have priced up Antonio Conte’s side as the 5/6 (1.83) favourites to win the tie with United the 7/2 (4.50) outsiders and the draw a 12/5 (3.40) shot.

When placing your bets, it’s important to remember that this match will go to extra-time if level after 90 minutes!

And should that happen then Ladbrokes is offering a fantastic incentive…

Get Money Back if Chelsea v Manchester United ends in a draw!*

*If the Chelsea v Man United match on Monday 13 March ends as a draw after 90 minutes we will refund losing bets on that match (as detailed in term 4) up to £/€25 per market, as Free Bets. Click here for full Terms and Conditions.

But that’s not all this top UK bookmaker is putting on the table.

Having seen his side dismantled 4-0 at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season, Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho will be eager to avoid a repeat.

However, if you think the Blues will be too strong for a United team missing Zlatan Ibrahimovic then get on the 13/2 (7.50) for Chelsea -2.

Usual suspect Diego Costa has netted in each of the Blues’ last three games, as well as in his side’s last FA Cup game at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Spain international is 5/1 (6.0) to net first at Stamford Bridge while it’s 7/2 (4.50) for compatriot Pedro to score in a home win.

Elsewhere, sports betting giant Ladbrokes have a number of tempting FA Cup odds on the away side.

Marcus Rashford is 5/2 (3.50) to get on the scoresheet at any time while it’s 7/4 (2.75) for the Old Trafford outfit to qualify for the semi-finals.

Tottenham v Everton Betting Preview 5/2/17

Tottenham v Everton betting preview

This Sunday lunchtime’s clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Everton promises to be an attractive affair with both sides boasting plenty of firepower.

Indeed, much of the build-up has focussed on the merits of star strikers Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku with both men expected to star at White Hart Lane.

But before we get into that, let’s look at the teams’ respective recent form.

Spurs currently sit second in the Premier League table with the Toffees nine points behind in seventh position.

Betting giants Ladbrokes have the hosts down as 8/13 (1.62) favourites to win the game with Ronald Koeman’s side the 9/2 (5.50) outsiders and the draw available at 14/5 (3.80).

There could well be value in the latter option given the fact that five of the last eight meetings have ended with honours even, including each of the last three.

However, this top bookmaker is offering even more eye-catching bets.

Tottenham have been in cracking form at White Hart Lane this season and are currently unbeaten on home turf in the league.

Incredibly, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won 11 of their 13 games at the Lane and nine of those without conceding.

It’s 11/8 (2.38) for Tottenham to keep a clean sheet with 7/4 (2.75) for the Lilywhites to win to nil.

However, if you can see Lukaku and co. causing them problems then get on the value-packed 8/15 (1.53) for Everton to score over 0.5 goals.

The visitors’ Belgian star is 7/4 (2.75) to net at any time and add to his 17-goal haul while Kane is 14/1 (15.0) to follow-up last weekend’s hat-trick against Stoke with another three-goal salvo.

Liverpool v Arsenal Betting Preview

Liverpool v Arsenal betting preview

Both Liverpool and Arsenal were considered viable title contenders earlier in the season but they head into Saturday night’s encounter simply desperate to cling onto hopes of getting into the Premier League’s top four.

Arsenal currently occupy the last Champions League place with this weekend’s hosts just a point behind them.

However, with Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in such poor form right now it’s the Gunners who perhaps represent the best value in this one.

The visitors are 12/5 (3.40) to take all three points with betting giants Ladbrokes.

Meanwhile, it’s currently 21/20 (2.05) for a home win and 5/2 (3.50) for the draw.

Liverpool ran out 4-3 winners at the Emirates in the pair’s opening game of the season but the Merseysiders look a shadow of the team that began the campaign in such scintillating style.

Since the turn of the year they’ve lost six of their last 12 games in all competitions, winning twice in that sequence and just once in their previous seven Premier League games.

Conceding goals has been a major problem, having kept only one top-flight clean sheet in their last seven league outings while letting in two or more goals in four of those fixtures.

Therefore, the 11/2 (6.50) available for Arsenal to net over 2.5 goals is just one of many attractive propositions.

In fact, it could pay to back plenty of net-busting action. Both Teams to Score at 8/13 (1.62) looks a banker given the fact that we’ve seen that outcome bear fruit in 21 of the pair’s last 26 meetings.

The last six Premier League clashes alone have featured 28 goals and that brings Ladbrokes’ bet of 4+ goals at 7/4 (2.75) to be scored into play as well.

Philippe Coutinho scored twice in the reverse fixture and grabbed his first goal since November against Leicester last time out. He’s 11/5 (3.20) to net anytime at Anfield with forward partner Roberto Firmino 5/1 (6.0) to score the game’s opening goal.

For the Gunners, top scorer Alexis Sanchez is 15/8 (2.88) to score anytime while a tempting 10/1 (11.0) to net two or more goals is on offer with one of best betting sites around.

Leicester v Liverpool Betting Preview

Leicester v Liverpool Betting Preview

The Premier League is set to return and the fixture list has thrown-up an intriguing Monday Night Football tussle between champions Leicester City and Liverpool.

Claudio Ranieri’s sacking has sent shockwaves through world football but now his former side must attempt to pick themselves up having endured such a dramatic slide.

Incredibly, the title holders find themselves just one point above the drop zone having lost five straight in the Premier League. Meanwhile, the Foxes haven’t even scored a top-flight goal since beating West Ham on New Year’s Eve.

Therefore, the smart money would appear to be for Liverpool to win at 3/5 (1.60) while those who fancy the home side to come good can get odds of 9/2 (5.50) with the draw priced at 3/1 (4.0).

However, sports betting giant Ladbrokes can offer better value than that.

Boasting one of the best betting sites in the business, this bookmaker has tons of great markets.

Bet on the Premier League

Leicester fans will happily reminisce about last season’s 2-0 home win over the Reds.

However, this term’s 4-1 hammering at Anfield back in September has proved to be far more telling of where the East Midlands outfit are heading in 2016-17.

Roberto Firmino grabbed a brace on that occasion and the Brazilian is 13/10 (2.30) to net at anytime in Monday’s game and 75/1 (76.0) to grab the first in another 4-1 victory.

Elsewhere, Sadio Mane has been a breath of fresh air since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations, with his double against Tottenham Hotspur securing all three points last time out.

The Senegalese striker also bagged in his side’s victory over Leicester in the reverse fixture with 9/4 (3.25) on offer for Mane to net in a Liverpool win.

For the hosts, Jamie Vardy scored his first goal since December against Sevilla, while the Foxes hitman has also netted two goals in his last three appearances against Jurgen Klopp’s outfit.

If Leicester are to get anything then they’ll need the 30-year-old to spark again. Vardy is 17/2 (9.50) to grab the game’s first goal.

However, if you just can’t see past an away win then get on the 6/5 (2.20) for Klopp’s fast-starting side to win the first-half.

Liverpool v Tottenham betting preview

Liverpool v Tottenham Betting Preview

It’s not a great time to be a Liverpool fan and the looming prospect of Tottenham Hotspur rocking up to Anfield this Saturday night is unlikely to calm any nerves.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have gone from Premier League title contenders to mere Champions League hopefuls following a disastrous start to 2017.

Aside from their cup woes, Liverpool have failed to win any of their five top-flight games, although they have shared the spoils in three of those contests.Premiership Betting Odds

And betting on the draw with bookmaking giant Ladbrokes looks an appealing place to begin this punting preview.

Only Manchester United have drawn more games than Maurico Pochettino’s Spurs oufit this season.

Added to that, the hosts have shared the points with four of the current top-six sides already this term so the 9/4 (3.25) certainly appeals.

Meanwhile, the bookies go 23/20 (2.15) for a Liverpool win – an outcome we witnessed when these sides met in a League Cup clash earlier in the season – with 12/5 (3.40) available for a Tottenham victory.

However, if you think it’ll be honours even and wish to get more bang for your buck then have a think about the 5/1 (6.0) the Ladbrokes betting site has put up for a 1-1 scoreline.

That was the result in the reverse fixture at White Hart Lane while Liverpool have registered 1-1 draws against Man United and Chelsea this season.

Elsewhere, it’s 6/4 (2.50) for Harry Kane to add to his 14-goal haul and net at any time, much like he did in last season’s encounter on Merseyside.

For the opposition, leading scorer Sadio Mane is 15/8 (2.88) to get on the scoresheet and 6/1 (7.00) to get the game’s first goal.

Monaco Vs Lorient Betting Preview

Monaco v Lorient: Ligue 1 leaders set to record another big win

The race for the Ligue 1 title is usually no more than a 38-game procession for Paris Saint-Germain but this year, the champions have some serious competition. Nice made a blistering start to the domestic campaign and are still in the mix but the biggest dangers could well be a Monaco side who host Lorient this weekend.

Best odds for this game here

Leonardo Jardim’s side are a goal scoring machine, led by the rejuvenated Radamel Falcao who struggled to regain his best form in England but has certainly made up for lost time on his return to the Stade Louis II.

Best Footbal Betting Odds in the UK

The home side have notched a league high 60 goals in just 20 games this season and while defensive they may not be as watertight as some of the other top teams, their irresistible form makes them an attractive proposition if you can find a decent angle.

Backing Monaco straight up at 1/3 (1.33) with Betway won’t get punters too hot under the collar but there are some combination bets which mean that Sunday’s hosts look a very solid selection.

Lorient are 7/1 (8.0) outsiders and the draw is 19/4 (4.75). Those lengthy odds on the visitors look entirely justified when you consider that they have picked up just two points away from home this season. Their last away day saw Bernard Casoni’s side hammered 5-0 by Paris Saint-Germain and they’ve been on the wrong end of some goal-filled defeats in the past few months.

Six of their previous seven away days have gone over 2.5 goals, in fact, they’ve averaged 3.85 goals per game and given Monaco’s fire power, we could be in for plenty more fireworks once more.

Both teams to score is a 7/10 (1.70) chance and understandably so, the hosts have been somewhat leaky at times this season, conceding in four of their previous six Ligue 1 matches. Ever a popular bet, the Win and BTTS market sees Monaco at an industry best price of 8/5 (2.60) which could appeal but there are some tastier prices to get stuck into.

One of which is Monaco to win and over 2.5 goals, that’s priced at 8/11 (1.73) by Betway, it’s not the juiciest wager ever but given it has paid out in 13 of the league leaders’ 14 league wins this season, it’s tough to look past another high-scoring victory and should appeal as a single wager.

Given that case, take some of the 6/4 (2.50) on the home win and over 3.5 goals. That’s something which has also paid out with regularly and given Lorient’s struggles on the road and their thumping defeat at third place PSG last time out, it could be another long afternoon for the club who sit 19th in the French top flight.

Manchester United v Liverpool 15/01/17 Betting Preview

Manchester United v Liverpool Preview: Mou’s men to keep it tight

There may be a blockbuster clash in prospect at Old Trafford but those who chose to watch the reverse fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool a few months ago will probably have wished they hadn’t bothered.

A drab 0-0 would have been pretty low on many people’s priority lists this time around but it could be the case that this game fails to live up to the considerable expectation level once again.

United have hit some very decent form in recent weeks, making smooth progress in both domestic cup competitions and up the Premier League following nine straight wins in all competitions. It’s 23/20 (2.15) that the home side pick up maximum points again here, while Liverpool are 14/5 (3.80) outsiders.

best football betting odds
That price may catch the eye of a few punters but the recent hiccups in form mean it’s tough to trust Jurgen Klopp’s men without some of their key men firing. Philippe Coutinho made a long-awaited comeback from injury in midweek but may not be 100% for this game while the absences of Sadio Mane (AFCON) and Jordan Henderson (injury) are big misses for the Merseysiders.

The draw could be the most sensible option here at 23/10 (3.30), especially with Mourinho likely to set his side up in a manner than means they give little away early on.

With that in mind it’s no surprise to see under 2.5 goals listed at just 5/6 (1.83) with that market being backed across the board at the time of writing.

Overs is available at 19/20 (1.95) but despite Liverpool boasting the highest-scoring attack in the division, they have fired back-to-back blanks in their cup clashes and it would be something of a leap of faith to expect them to spring back to their free-scoring ways given the missing pieces of their attacking puzzle.

Given the move opposing goals, it’s logical that both teams to score will drift too and it has already done so although it’s available at 8/11 (1.73) while at least one side to fail to net is priced at Evens (2.0).

Unders is probably still a fair enough play at 5/6 (1.83) with Betway, it’s copped in five of United’s last seven Premier League clashes at Old Trafford with the two exceptions coming against Middlesbrough and Sunderland who are both in the bottom five of the table coming into this weekend.

For a value bet, why not look to the winning margin market where United to win by one goal is available at 11/4 (3.75) generally. With Liverpool looking a little off-colour it would be no surprise if this game turned into another tense, nervy affair and while Mourinho’s men do have the weapons to come out on top, it’s unlikely to be by an especially convincing margin.

Wayne Rooney is level with Sir Bobby Charlton’s record of 249 Manchester United goals and although the England captain is almost certain to break the record, his poor form in front of goal this season means he’s easy enough to ignore at 6/4 (2.50) to net anytime.

Leicester City Vs Chelsea 14/01/17 Betting Preview

Leicester City v Chelsea: Waiting for goals looks the way to go

The reigning Premier League champions play host to the current league leaders in a game which sees plenty of sub-plots come to the fore. Leicester City’s win over Chelsea in this fixture last season not only kept the Foxes on track for their maiden top flight title but it also signalled the end of Jose Mourinho’s time in charge. Again.

Add to that the intrigue of N’Golo Kante returning to his former club, plus the fact that it was the visitors who ultimately handed the Foxes their title victory last term with a draw against nearest challengers Tottenham, and there are plenty of talking points at the King Power.

Leicester vs Chelsea Match Preview
Chelsea are unsurprisingly the favourites, despite a defeat to Spurs bringing their consecutive winning streak to a halt before they could break Arsenal’s record of 14, the away win is just 4/6 (1.67) with Paddy Power who go 9/2 (5.50) on the Foxes claiming a considerable scalp and the draw is 11/4 (3.75).
That 4/6 (1.67) is actually an industry best price at the time of writing and while Antonio Conte’s men are the most likely victors, there could be better spots to get involved rather than backing them at such a short price.

One thing this fixture usually brings is goals. Chelsea won 3-0 in the reverse game earlier this season while the two played out a pulsating EFL Cup clash on this ground a few months back which the Londoners eventually won 4-2 after extra time, having turned around a 2-0 deficit.

The last seven head-to-head meetings have seen 27 goals, an average of 3.85 per game and so over 2.5 goals here could be popular at 4/5 (1.80) but it’s the under 2.5 goals line at 10/11 (1.91) which is being backed in the run up to kick off.

That actually isn’t too surprising, Chelsea’s best attribute is their solid defence and although it’s been breached more regularly in recent weeks, they’re still a very solid outfit. Considering Claudio Ranieri is without both Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez who are on international duty, this could be a little cagier than usual.

The home side may also be about to switch from their favoured 4-4-2 formation to a 4-3-3, packing the centre of midfield with fit again Danny Drinkwater, summer signing Nampalys Mendy and recent acquisition Wilfred N’didi, who impressed in the FA Cup win over Everton a week ago where the team first tried out this new approach.

That could mean the home side are much more compact than they have been thus far and could lead us to a couple of worthwhile wagers. Chelsea have often taken their time to break sides down, especially on the road where the Blues haven’t scored a league goal before the 40th minute in any of their previous five games.

One angle could be to back the first goal to come after the 27th minute at 11/10 (2.10) with Paddy Power. Another possible punt looks to be the second half to be the highest scoring considering Leicester have netted 62.5% of their league goals after the interval and Chelsea’s stats are 61.9% this term. The recent history may suggest a high-scoring game but the changes in these two sides’ modus operandi could lead us to a profitable strategy opposing too much early action.
