Premier League Weekend Betting Preview

League leaders Manchester City appear set for another victory this weekend while Man Utd and Chelsea will be looking to stay in touch at the top of the table with wins against Everton and Arsenal respectively. bwin.com assesses their chances ahead of the latest round of Premier League fixtures and runs through the 3Way odds for all of the top-flight matches taking place this weekend. All odds quoted are correct as of 12:00 on Friday, 28th October but are subject to change.

All odds are from bwin, where you can also enjoy a free 25 bet.


There are difficult calls to make for betting fans looking at bwin's 3Way market this week, although Man City against Wolves is not one of them. Mick McCarthy's side were on the wrong end of a 5-2 drubbing against the Citizens in the Carling Cup at Molineux in midweek and look set for another painful 90 minutes on Saturday when the two teams meet in the league at the Etihad Stadium. With this in mind, there appears to be little point in looking past Man City's odds of 3/20 for victory, although a draw is priced at 6/1 and a Wolves win at 33/2.

Arsenal's recent resurgence means their game against Chelsea is slightly harder to pick, although given the match is being played at Stamford Bridge the Blues hold a significant edge. Andre Villas-Boas' men have won ten of their last 11 league games at the Bridge, with the other result being a draw, while Arsenal have yet to win in the league on the road this season. Chelsea therefore look good to pick up three points at 31/50, with a draw at 29/10 and an Arsenal win at 4/1.

Similarly, Manchester United should secure a win at Goodison Park at odds of 18/25, with the draw at 27/10 and an Everton success at 18/5. Their worrying tendency to concede chances means United are not as nailed on for victory as Man City, but with the added motivation provided by their drubbing in the Manchester derby last Sunday, they should have too much for an Everton side who have struggled against the big six this season.

The remaining five games on Saturday offer punters more of an opportunity to see significant returns on their investment. Perhaps the best example of this is Wigan's clash with Fulham at the DW Stadium. A win for the Latics is at 19/10, a Fulham success is priced at 29/20 and a draw is at 12/5. It is this latter option which is the most appealing, with the last five matches between the two teams in Wigan all ending without a winner.

A draw (5/2) could also be a good bet at Carrow Road, with Norwich looking too short at 22/25 to beat Blackburn. While the visitors (3/1 for victory) have only kept one clean sheet in their last 23 Premier League games, Norwich are hardly watertight at the back either - they have conceded more than they have scored in the league this year - and this could allow Rovers to stay on even terms with Paul Lambert's men.

There is also the chance of an upset at the Hawthorns, where West Brom are 11/4 underdogs against Liverpool despite picking up three more points than Kenny Dalglish's side have in their last six matches. The Reds, evens favourites, have failed to convert their superiority into wins in recent league games and lost 2-1 to the Baggies when they last met in April. And with Norwich managing a draw at Anfield last week, the odds of 23/10 on West Brom repeating the trick could be worth another look.

Over in Wales, Swansea have a good chance of making it three wins in a row at the Liberty Stadium against a Bolton side on a run of five league defeats in their last six. The Trotters won their last away match in the league but with Swansea yet to concede at home, 21/20 looks a decent price on three points for Brendan Rodgers' men. A Bolton win is at 5/2 and a draw is available at 12/5.

A home win for Sunderland (11/10) also appears on the cards against Aston Villa, with the Black Cats slowly moving through the gears after a sluggish start to the campaign. Villa (12/5) have yet to win on their travels in the league, although as they have drawn three of their four games on the road this could still be a good option at 23/10. Nevertheless, Sunderland's upturn in fortunes (four points from their last two home games) makes a Black Cats victory the result to back.

On Sunday, Spurs - who have matched Man City's form over the last six games - are heavy favourites to beat QPR at White Hart Lane. Neil Warnock's men looked inferior to the nine men of Chelsea in the second half of their last match and should be exposed by Spurs in their second successive London derby, with the home team priced at 17/50 for victory. QPR are 8/1 to record an unlikely success, with the draw at 15/4.

The final match this gameweek sees Stoke take on Newcastle on Monday. The Magpies are still unbeaten in the league, although they lost to Blackburn in the Carling Cup in midweek. Back the Potters, who have an excellent home record, to make it successive defeats for Alan Pardew's side at 21/20. Newcastle are 27/10 to win the match, while the draw is at 9/4.-
