BetVictor were delighted to announce on Tuesday they were the new global betting and gaming partner of Premier League champions Chelsea.

To celebrate the occasion BetVictor have an offer available to new and existing customers of 3/1, for £10 and a limited period, for the Blues to win any major Trophy during the forthcoming season including the Community Shield v Arsenal at the beginning of August.

Our traders have also come up with a number of markets on Chelsea for the forthcoming season and I would like to point out one which I think is overpriced. Chelsea suffered their first loss in 78 home Premier League games at the Bridge under Jose Mourinho in April 2014 when relegation-threatened Sunderland won 2-1 and are unbeaten since.

Having won 15 and drew four at the Bridge last term how can a side who have lost one of their last 98 at home under the Special One be priced at 7/1? Yes it is a season long bet but realistically only a handful of teams can threaten the Blues at the Bridge and statistically they should not be 7/1 at BetVictor!

At the time of writing Yorkshire are 13/8 to retain their County Championship but more immediately, the White Rose county travel to Grace Road today looking to improve their current modest Nat West record. Yorkshire are 8/15 favourites with the Foxes 6/4.

Joe Root FEC (Future England Captain) goes from strength to strength and it would appear his younger brother Billy is cut from the same cloth having scored 135 off 69-balls for Leeds/Bradford Universities in the final of the MCC Universities Challenge at Lords against Cardiff earlier in the week.

Root is 7/2 to top score in the East Midlands with Gary Ballance 9/2, Jonny Bairstow 11/2 and Adil Rashid 18/1. Root and Ballance are due to fly out for warm weather training in Spain the following day and both must be doubts for the game with England needing to wrap Root in cotton wool such is his value to the side in any form of cricket at present.

England Women meet hosts Canada in the ¼ Final of the World Cup in the early hours of Sunday morning and are 23/10 to go through to the semi-finals in 90 minutes and 14/1 to win the tournament.

By next weekend Germany could be the Men’s and Women’s World Champions as well as the European Under 21 champions. That would be some record.

Wimbledon starts on Monday and whilst Novak Djokovic (11/8) is a worthy favourite I think Andy Murray represents the value at 5/2.

Nole has not played a competitive game on grass and must still be smarting after his French Open Final defeat.

In the Women’s Serena Williams is halfway toward the calendar Grand Slam of Major titles and cannot be opposed at 7/4. Williams has held all four titles in the past (Serena Slam in 2003/4) but not in the same year and this would be the icing on a career.
