Chelsea v Newcastle United (15:00 BST)

Did the international break come at the wrong time for Chelsea? The Blues made an underwhelming start to life under Frank Lampard as they won just two of their first six Premier League fixtures and fell to a 1-0 home defeat to Valencia in the Champions League, but Lamps’ young guns came roaring to life after suffering a 2-1 defeat at home to Liverpool in late September and went into the brief break on a four-match win streak in all competitions. A 7-1 thrashing of Grimsby Town in the League Cup was not about to make the rest of the top flight sit up and take notice, but they followed that up on strong fashion by sandwiching a Champions League win at Lille with Premier League successes against Brighton and Southampton, and that 4-1 victory at St Mary’s has got people talking about this youthful Blues side. While a title and perhaps silverware will be beyond them this season, there is plenty of excitement now surrounding a core of youngsters who have been thrust into regular first-team football thanks to the club’s transfer embargo. They have repaid Lampard’s faith with some impressive performances, earning international call-ups in the process, so suddenly things are looking a whole lot brighter at Stamford Bridge right now. However, the excitement would be cooled a little if they tripped up at home to Newcastle United on Saturday. The Magpies arrive in the nation’s capital on the back of a 1-0 win over Manchester United last time out and they have already recorded one big win on the road this season, upsetting Tottenham Hotspur in late August. That should not detract from how poor they have been so far though. Those two victories are the only two they have managed this season and pressure is already mounting on Steve Bruce, who was already an unpopular successor to Rafael Benitez. Away from home they have suffered comprehensive defeats at the hands of Norwich City, Liverpool and Norwich City, and I expect more of the same here if Chelsea pick up from where they left off against Southampton.

The Blues are flying right now so just like Norwich, Liverpool and Leicester I expect them to win this match by at least two goals, but in my search for bigger odds I am not just stopping at the ‘Winning Margin’ market or the handicap market. Instead I am using bet365’s Bet Builder to beef up my bet with a couple of options. Given Newcastle’s woeful defensive record on the road and Chelsea’s lack of clean sheets this season there is a recipe for goals here, so I expect we will see at least three of them at Stamford Bridge. And if I am looking for goals I have to be looking at goalscorers and the one name that immediately stands out is Tammy Abraham. The 22-year-old is finally getting his shot at first-team football with Chelsea, having spent the past few seasons out on loan, and he has grabbed his big chance with both hands to make an immediate impression. Abraham has scored eight goals in eight Premier League appearances so far, while also netting once in the Champions League, so he has to be considered the leading contender to break the deadlock here. Surprisingly the vast majority of his goals have come away from the Bridge, but that can be overlooked when you consider that he has been a winning First Goalscorer selection on four occasions already. That could be a winner for a fifth time on Saturday as Chelsea win by two or more in a match that sees at least three goals.

Tottenham vs Watford (15:00 BST)

Tottenham’s season has failed to really get off the ground as of yet, with the London club stumbling from game to game with rumours of unrest seeing the side in apparent turmoil both on and off the field. A 3-0 loss to Brighton in their last game before the international break capped off an awful week for the side as they failed to bounce back from their humiliating 7-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, with the German side hammering Tottenham as former-Arsenal player Serge Gnabry netted four second-half goals to really hurt their opponents. Switching focus back to league matters, Tottenham are already a massive 13 points short of early pace setters Liverpool, with just three wins in eight attempts a paltry total in comparison to Liverpool’s eight wins on the bounce. This run has seen the pressure building on manager Mauricio Pochettino, while questions have been asked of some of Tottenham’s star men, with many failing to stand up to be counted when they have been needed the most. One man that continues to fight hard though is Harry Kane. The Tottenham and England captain has netted five goals this season as he looks to drag his side out of their slump quickly enough to give themselves a fighting chance of making this season a success. However, with Spurs already 13 points short of Liverpool in the league, it looks as though a Premier League title will once again prove to be some way out of their reach. 

While Spurs have been struggling this season, Watford have been enduring a torrid start to their campaign. Without a win in eight and only holding three points from three draws in eight, the Hornets are already four points short of Southampton in 17th, while they supplied the first managerial casualty of the season in a proper knee-jerk reaction as they replaced Javi Gracia with former-manger Quique Sanchez Flores very early in the season. Often, fresh blood in the managerial hot-seat can bring improved performances from players, but this is yet to really happen for their new manager, with their 2-2 draw against Arsenal followed by a demolition job at the hands of Manchester City in Flores’ second game seeing any feel-good factor evaporate instantly. A 0-0 draw with Sheffield United is something to build on going into their next game, but their problems right across the pitch persist, with the side scoring a pathetic four goals in eight and conceding 20 times already. If Flores is unable to stop his side from leaking goals and cannot sharpen their blunted frontline then we would not be surprised to see another new manager in the hot-seat before the season is done. Despite their awful run of form in the build up to the international break, we think Tottenham can utilise this one to get back to winning ways as the side propping up the table have not been anywhere ear good enough so far. As mentioned, Watford are leaking goals and Kane is in good form after netting two goals on International duty, which is a worrying combination for the visiting side. On top of this, Pochettino will have surely put plans in place to plug his defence after their awful recent displays, and we are backing them to come up trumps against a Watford attack that has been toothless thus far. 

Man Utd v Liverpool (Sunday 16:30 BST)

Liverpool return from the international break with a 100% record having won each of their first eight games in the Premier League, but if they are to make it nine wins from nine games they are going to have to do something they have struggled to do over the past decade – beat Manchester United in the North West Derby. It sounds almost unbelievable, but the Merseyside giants have won only two of their last 12 meetings with the Red Devils and they have won just once at Old Trafford in the past 10 years – with that victory coming way back in March 2014 when they stormed to a 3-0 victory at the ‘Theatre of Dreams’. So can they exorcise a few demons on Sunday? Jurgen Klopp’s side make the short trip to Salford in fantastic shape thanks to their storming start to the season. Liverpool have reeled off eight straight victories to storm to the summit and while seeing them sit top of the table is not a massive surprise, the gap between themselves and Manchester City is. City have already slipped up three times this season, losing twice, and the Reds have taken full advantage to open up a commanding eight-point lead. They buckled when in a similar position last season though, so while it does feel like the title may well be Liverpool’s to lose, you have to wonder if they have the mettle to go all the way this time. One slightest slip-up could be the catalyst for a slump in form and it is safe to say the last place they want to slip up at is Old Trafford – the home of their fiercest rivals. While Liverpool’s sights are fixed on the title, Manchester United’s immediate focus is just to get into the top half of the table. They have made a truly pathetic start to the season that has seen them win just two of their first eight games, lose three of them, score just nine goals and concede eight, and it is difficult to see where and how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can turn this around. They do boast one of the better defensive records in the league, but they lack a creative spark and the absence of an out-and-out goalscorer is evident because only six clubs have scored fewer Premier League goals this season – United have been out-scored by top-flight newcomers Aston Villa and Norwich City. A big derby win over Liverpool would certainly lift the doom and gloom surrounding the club right now, but right now not even the most ardent of supporters would predict their team upsetting Liverpool.

United have managed to take points off the Merseysiders in nine of their last 10 meetings, but much of that success came courtesy of Jose Mourinho’s ‘park the bus’ strategy that resulted in a string of low-scoring, dour draws. Solskjaer did lead his team to a shock 2-1 win over Liverpool during the ‘honeymoon period’ that was his caretaker reign, but it would not be unfair to say that Manchester United have regressed considerably since that date while Liverpool have gone from strength to strength. They are by far the better team and for that reason I do believe that you can throw history and recent records out of the window – Liverpool are a superior team and that should be clear for all to see on Sunday. Manchester United will try to keep things tight at the back and frustrate the visitors, but ultimately they will not be able to cope with the attacking onslaught that comes their way. Liverpool will find a breakthrough at some point and when they do there will be no way back for the home side. The odds for an away win are decent enough when you consider how these two clubs have fared during the first eight rounds of fixtures, but I am looking for something a little bigger and there is bags of appeal in backing Liverpool to win & over 1.5 total goals. Over 1.5 Total Goals has been a winning bet on 10 of Liverpool’s 11 fixtures so far and while United have been woeful in front of goal, they have found the back of the net in all six of their competitive home fixtures. Factor in that Liverpool have conceded a few recently and it would not be a shock to see the home side aid the total goals tally here. However, when the final whistle blows it will be Liverpool who have scored the most to claim all three points and maintain their flawless record.

Premier League Betting Tips: How To Bet On Outright Markets

Outright betting on the Premier League remains a great way to make a profit while betting on the top flight of English football, but of course you have to have some patience because these types of bets are not ones that pay out quickly, unless you have placed them during the final days of the season.

Premier League outright markets are straightforward - you are betting on subjects such as league winners, relegation, top-four finishes etc, and these Premier League prediction markets are available all season long so you can wait to see how a team performs before backing them in one of these markets. So what markets are available? Read on...

Premier League Winner

The Premier League Winner market is exactly what the title says – you are betting on who will win the top-flight of English football. This market goes live very early on – you could bet on the 2018/19 Premier League Winner market before the conclusion of the 2017/18 campaign – and the earlier you bet on it, the bigger the price you will get in most instances. Look at Leicester City who were 5000/1 to win the Premier League heading into the 2015/16 season and left the bookies facing some massive pay-outs when they went all the way. You will not see prices that big anymore – the bookies have learned their lesson – but if you are a patient punter this could be the market for you.

Top 4 Finish

The Top 4 Finish market gives you the opportunity to bet on a team finishing in – you guessed it – the top four places in the Premier League. It does not matter if the team you back finishes first, second third or fourth, as long as they are in the top four at the end of the campaign your bet will be a winner. Now, you are not going to make much in the way of a profit by backing a team like Manchester City in this market, but the race for Champions League football is a hot one with several teams looking to fill the four places and that means even some of the big clubs are available at backable prices before and during the season. But of course, as the league season pans out these odds are likely to fluctuate and in many cases get shorter, so you really have to get your timing right to get the best possible odds.

Top 6 Finish

This market is just like the Top 4 one, but in this instance you are betting on a team finishing in the top six. The big guns will always be short odds in this market, but if you feel there is a sleeper team in the Premier League that could upset the established order a little bit – Burnley threatened to do it in 2017/18 – you could make a healthy profit while betting on this market. But just like the Top 4 Finish market, the odds will change throughout the season so timing is everything.

Top 10 Finish

While the Top 4 Finish and Top 6 Finish markets are dominated by the usual suspects, the Top 10 Finish market is one that can produce some very healthy returns because there is almost always one team that springs something of a surprise by finishing in the top half of the table. In recent years the likes of Bournemouth and Burnley have gone from relegation candidates to top-half finishers in the space of 12 months, and if you successfully back a team to follow in their footsteps you could enjoy a tidy profit at the end of the campaign. But just like the previous Top (position) markets, the odds will change throughout the season so timing is everything.


Those first few markets were looking at the top end of the table, but betting on the other end of the Premier League standings is also a popular form of outright betting. The relegation market is simple – you are betting on a team to go down to the Championship at the end of the season. It does not matter if that team finishes 18th, 19th or 20th – as long as they head down to the second tier at the end of the campaign your bet will be a winner. Newly-promoted teams tend to be short odds in this market, but in recent years we have seen quite a few surprise relegations and because this is a market that is available all season long, it really does offer the chance to make a tidy profit when betting on the Premier League. And what you really want here is a congested bottom half because that will result in several teams being available at backable odds even at a late stage in the season.

Relegation Treble

This is very much like the previous market in which you are backing teams to go down, but unlike the Relegation market where you pick just one side, the Relegation Treble market requires you to pick all three teams that will be relegated at the end of the campaign. Due to the risk involved – you need three teams to deliver – this is a market that can lead to a big return.

To Finish Bottom

While the Relegation market asks you to pick a team that will go down, the To Finish Bottom market requires you to select a side that will be propping up the rest of the Premier League table at the end of the season. You will see bigger odds in this market than you will in the Relegation one because you do not have three league positions that will hand you a winning bet, but if you are betting on this market you need to do it before a team gets cut adrift at the bottom, otherwise their odds will shorten quickly and dramatically.

To Stay Up

Staying at the bottom end of the table, we are switching things up with the To Stay Up market. No longer are you backing a team or teams to be relegated, you are backing them to secure Premier League survival. Of course, teams that have featured in the top flight for several seasons are going to be at short or unbackable odds in this market, but if you like the chances of a newly-promoted team lasting more than one season in the Premier League or fancy a team that narrowly avoided the drop the season before to stay up once again, this is the market for you. But just like the other outright markets available for the Premier League, timing is everything here as you look to make a profit because the odds available can – and will – fluctuate.

Top Goalscorer

With a wealth of attacking talent plying its trade in the Premier League nowadays, the race to be the English top-flight’s Top Goalscorer is always an interesting one and it remains a popular outright market for punters to bet on. With so many options available, it is a market that offers an opportunity to make a nice profit because even the most lethal strikers are available at backable odds during the early stages of the season. But of course, as the goals flow the prices shorten and that means this is a market you really need to consider jumping on early to get the best possible price. 

Winner/Top Goalscorer

This market combines the Premier League Winner and Top Goalscorer markets – but you do not necessarily have to back a striker that plys his trade for the team that wins the league. After all, in recent seasons the Premier League champions have not boasted the services of the league’s top goalscorer. The fact you are combining two different markets means there is more risk involved, but if you can successfully select the Premier League Winner and the Golden Boot winner then a healthy profit could be making its way into your account at the end of the campaign.

Premier League Betting Tips: How To Bet On Premier League Matches

Betting on Premier League matches has never been easier and there has never been so many markets to choose from for every single game – but which Premier League prediction markets should you be using in an attempt to make a profit? offers Premier League betting tips for every match in English football’s top tier and the following markets feature regularly in our previews…


Football betting markets do not come much more simpler than this one – you are simply backing a team to win the game or for the match to end in a draw. This market is available for every football match you can possibly bet on, but it goes without saying that sometimes it will not offer the most appealing odds. The best chance of making a decent profit in this market comes from what the bookmakers perceive to be a very competitive match – for example, Watford v Burnley or Manchester United v Liverpool. If a match looks to be one sided then there will be one clear favourite and that team’s odds will not be appealing.


The handicap market is very similar to the ‘Winner’ market, but in this instance you are backing a team to overcome a fictional handicap. For example, Chelsea are 3/10 to beat West Ham United, but that price offers very little in the way of appeal. However, you can still back the Blues to win the match, at a better price, thanks to the handicap market. In this instance, Chelsea -2 to win the match is available at 21/10. So what does the -2 mean? It means West Ham will start the game with a fictional 2-0 lead and Chelsea must win by three goals in order to erase the deficit and win the match, landing you a winning bet. On the opposite side, you may believe Chelsea will win by a single goal so you could go West Ham +2, which is available at Even money. That means if Chelsea win the match 1-0 on the field, West Ham will actually be 2-1 winners in terms of your bet once the two-goal handicap is applied.


Another way to back a team to win at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market is to dive into the Half-time/Full-time market. This market requires you to bet on who you think will be winning at half-time and full-time in the match. So for example, you may believe Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will be drawing at half-time but fancy Tottenham Hotspur to be in front at full-time. Therefore the selection you would make would be Draw/Tottenham, which is currently available at 7/1. This market can offer a great way to make a healthy profit because you need two things to happen for it to be a winner.

Winning Margin

Winning margin is another way to back a team at a better price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ betting market – and just like the previous markets I have mentioned this is straightforward. You are merely betting on how many goals a team will win by – Manchester City to win by 1 goal, Manchester City to win by 2 goals, Manchester City to win by 3 goals more etc. So instead of backing Man City to beat Everton at 1/3, which is hardly tempting, you may fancy them to run out comfortable winners by two goals. Backing Manchester City to win by 2 goals in this instance would offer a higher, and more appealing, price of 3/1.

Total Goals

The outcome of the match does not matter as far as this betting market is confirmed – you are merely betting on how many goals will be scored in total. So for example, if you are expecting to see at least two goals you could back Over 1.5 Total Goals, or you may expect to see three or less so you would select Under 3.5 Total Goals. The prices in this market will obviously vary from match to match, so while it may offer a tempting price in one game it may not be particularly appealing in another.

Both Teams To Score

Just like ‘Total Goals’, this football betting market is not affected by the outcome of a match. When betting on this market you simply need both teams involved in the game to find the back of the net – it does not matter how many times they both score, each team just needs to score at least once. Of course, just like ‘Total Goals’ the appeal of this market will vary from match to match. For example, the odds on both teams scoring will be bigger if one team has a rock-solid defence that rarely concedes, while the price will be short if the match is features to two teams with leaky rearguards.

Match Result & Both Teams To Score

This market combines two of the previous markets I have mentioned – Winner and Both Teams To Score. It is straightforward though and it does offer another opportunity to back a match outcome at a bigger price than the one available in the ‘Winner’ market. In this instance, all you are doing is betting on the outcome of the match and whether or not both teams will score. So for example, you may expect odds-on favourites Liverpool to beat Crystal Palace but want a bigger price than 6/13. By going into this market you can get a price as big as 2/1 on Liverpool to win & both teams to score. For this bet to win you just need Palace to score in a losing effort. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of both teams scoring.

Match Result & Over/Under Total Goals

This is very similar to the last market I wrote about, but instead of backing both teams to score you are simply betting on who will win and how many goals will be scored in the match. For example, when Liverpool visit Crystal Palace you may be expecting the Reds to win a match that sees at least three goals. Therefore you would back Liverpool/Over 2.5 in this market at odds of 21/20. It does not matter if Liverpool win 3-0, 2-1 of 10-0 – as long as they are victorious and three total goals are scored then your bet would be a winner. Of course, the odds are affected by the likelihood of goals being scored in the match. 

First Goalscorer

First Goalscorer betting remains one of the most popular forms of betting when it comes to football matches. This market is available for every match in top club and international competitions, and it offers a great opportunity to make a healthy profit because you are simple betting on who will break the deadlock with the game’s first goal. With 20 outfield players on the pitch when the match gets underway, there are plenty of players to choose from and that means even the likes of Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane will be available at backable prices. But perhaps you like the look of a goal-scoring midfielder – his odds could be rather sizeable and if he does break the deadlock you will enjoy a very tidy return.

Anytime Goalscorer

Odds in this market are shorter than the First Goalscorer market because you are merely betting on a player to score in the match. It does not matter if he nets first, second, third or last – as long as he finds the back of the net your bet will be a winner. Big name players are usually at short odds in this market, so you often have to be a little creative when picking out a goalscorer. Perhaps one team is excellent at set-pieces, bringing a defender into play in this market at a big price? Or perhaps a side has a midfielder with a knack for ghosting into the box and grabbing a goal here and there? This market can offer good rewards when you successfully back a player that is not exactly prolific in front of goal.

Premier League History

History was made back in 1992 when it was announced that the top clubs in English football would break away from the Football League to form the Premiership. In reality not much changed though, with clubs still being promoted to and being relegated from the replacement for the old First Division.

Manchester United were crowned the first Premier League champions in 1992/93 and it would prove to be the start of a Golden Era for the Old Trafford giants, who have been by far the most successful team since the break-away, winning the English title on 13 occasions.

Only five other clubs have won the Premier League title, with Chelsea the second most successful club with five trophies, and that shows just how successful the Red Devils were during Sir Alex Ferguson's lengthy reign at the Theatre Of Dreams.

While there is no shock to see Arsenal and Manchester City among the other clubs that have won the title, there are a couple of surprise names on the lineage thanks to Blackburn Rovers' success - funded by Jack Walker - in 1994/95 and Leicester City's incredible 2015/16 success that saw them go from 5000/1 pre-season outsiders to kings of English football.
