Premier League betting.
After the national team only managed to thrash Wales by a single goal, it is a good job the Premier League returns this weekend, so we can forget what a mess English football is in. Here are four tips for you whilst the cracks are being papered over:
– Arsenal, with their panic new signings, welcome Swansea to the Emirates looking to put right their 8-2 mauling at Old Trafford. In each of the last four seasons, Arsenal have thumped at least five goals past someone before the end of September, and tomorrow it could be the turn of the Swans. Van Persie and new signing Park have been heavily amongst the goals during the international break and whilst it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Swansea score against that defence, we think Arsenal will get their season firmly back on track. Back four goals or more with Bet365 at 67/40.
– Manchester City host Wigan and will be expecting to move to the top of the table, at least until Manchester United play Bolton later in the day. Mancini’s men at 1.19 with Betfair offer little value, but City winning to nil, which has been the outcome on Wigan’s three previous visits to Eastlands, at 10/11 with Ladbrokes, appears to be the value bet.
– Spurs fans used to sing rude songs about Adebayor but they’ll be chanting his name in a more favourable fashion should he crack a few goals in for them. This is something he has done before on his first start – for Arsenal, Manchester City and Real Madrid. With that in mind, backing Adebayor to grab a goal at a best-priced 7/4 with Ladbrokes could be worth a look.
– Whilst Liverpool have made a commendable start to the season, a home victory over Bolton and an away win at an out-of-sorts Arsenal should not make them as short as 5/4 to win at Stoke, where they’ve not won in any of their three Premier League trips to date. A lay at 2.3 on Betfair could be considered.
