Premiership Preview by Nigel Ridgeway

Written by: Nigel Ridgway (2005-11-30 21:07:50)

Last week's Premiership matches provided no shocks at the top of the table, with all the big guns winning to justify odds-on quotes in their matches. After the early exploits of Wigan, the top of the table has a familiar look about it. With their ten-point lead, Chelsea are obviously long odds on-shots (1/16), with Man United (10/1) and Arsenal (14/1) filling the next two places. The outright market may be dead and buried, but you can still grab some value with our betting 'Without the top three' market. Here, Tottenham look the pick at 9/4. They've got Liverpool to beat, but the Merseysiders are still having problems scoring, while Spurs can rely on a wealth of talent up front.

Bet365 'Without Arsenal, Chelsea & Man Utd' prices: Liverpool 8/11, Tottenham 9/4, Bolton 12/1, Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Man City 16/1, others on BET 365 website.

With the big guns all going in last week, it was good news to all bet365 customers who combined them in accumulator bets, especially as they were assured of getting extra value with our Premiership Accumulator Bonus (up to 60% extra each week). This weekend, we could have more of the same, with the likes of Chelsea, United and Spurs all looking nailed-on against inferior opposition at 1/4, 1/5, and 1/3 respectively. It might be tempting to include both Arsenal and Liverpool in that list, but bettors should approach these games with more caution.

Liverpool look to have turned around their relatively disappointing start to the season, but still look under-priced at 8/15 to beat Wigan. Home wins against Sunderland, Blackburn, West Ham and Portsmouth won't exactly strike fear into the Latics, who've shown themselves more than capable of holding their own against the 'better' Premiership sides, and they can come away from Anfield with a point.

Liverpool v Wigan - Draw @ 5/2 at BET 365

Arsenal have been in fine form at home this season, but it's been a different story on the road. Their only win was a 3-2 thriller at Wigan, with the Latics constantly threatening to get back into the contest, and Bolton's more physical approach will provide them with an even sterner test. In fact, Arsenal have always had problems against Bolton, winning only one of their last four matches at the Reebok, including a 1-0 defeat at the end of last season.

Bolton to beat Arsenal @ 10/3 at BET 365

Our weekend acca is completed by West Brom, who must be backed at 11/8 to beat a Fulham side who've been woeful on the road this season (just 2 points from a possible 21), which gives us a tidy return of 2161.25 (25 stake) on our 6 selections, including a bet365 bonus of 360.21.

Suggested Premiership Accumulator:

Chelsea (1/4), Man United (1/5), Tottenham (1/3), Wigan to Draw (5/2), Bolton (10/3) and West Brom (11/8) pays 2161.25 (25 stake) at BET 365

Here at bet365, we like to spice up the season with a vast array of novelty bets, and the latest may strike a chord with some of our Geordie customers. After news that Newcastle skipper Alan Shearer will face no action over his clash with Everton's David Weir, we make Shearer a 9/2 shot to get sent off this season. Although he has received plenty of cards during his career, only two of them have been red, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see referees taking pity on him in his final season.
