Betting Preview: Title Favourites Clash as Pardew Sweats & United Push On

After a break for the return of the Champions League, the Premier League is back! With Man City hosting Chelsea, the game at the Etihad presents the weekend’s biggest game whilst Liverpool will look to bounce back at Upton Park, whilst United will look to maintain their momentum against promoted Leicester on Sunday.

Our Bookie Buster Angus Loughran walks us through some of the weekend’s best picks:

QPR were awful against Man United last Sunday but it is not matches like that which will be important come May in their bid United to stay in league, it is is games like Saturday’s against Stoke.

This might not be pretty but I take a narrow win for The Hoops at 17/10 with a saver on 0-0 at around 6/1 in a match I do not expect too much entertainment from.

I would not want to lump on Arsenal at 4/5 to win at Aston Villa and think the home team are overpriced here at 7/2 for a shock with The Gunners still suffering from defensive problems due to an injury crisis.

Home advantage could be key in a vital match at Turf Moor where the Clarets look the value at 31/20 against Sunderland while only a brave man would back Newcastle at 23/20 to beat Hull with the Tigers well worth a second look at 13/5 to put even more pressure on Alan Pardew,I like Pardew and he has ridden plenty of storms at Newcastle but also provided some great football in bits for the fans the trouble is not enough good bits for the success starved Geordies!

Southampton and Swansea have both made great starts to the season and 12/5 for a point each at The Liberty looks the call.
Liverpool look a vulnerable 4/5 chance at West Ham in Saturday nights live Sky Match it is hard to fancy The Hammers too strongly even at tasty 10/3 but a draw at 14/5 is good value.

On Sunday I expect Manchester United at 4/6 to win at Leicester and Spurs at 8/15 to beat WBA while Everton should also be too strong for Crystal Palace at 4/9 while the days main offering between Manchester City and Chelsea looks very hard to call with Betway offering the best on a draw at 23/10 for a match neither dare lose even this early in the season.

All odds are taken from Ladbrokes, who are offering money back if Man City beat Chelsea on Sunday, and can be found here.
