The highlight of the Premier League fixtures this weekend sees Chelsea travel to face Louis Van Gaal’s new-look Manchester United side.
The Blues remain 1⁄2 favourites for the Title after the weekend’s 2-1 defeat of Crystal Palace and warmed up for Sunday’s clash with an impressive 6-0 defeat of Maribor in the Champions League at the Bridge.
BetVictor make the Blues 6/4 to leave Old Trafford with all three points; the Red Devils 2/1 and the draw 5/2.
Chelsea have kept clean sheets in their previous two visits and after being rested midweek Blues keeper Thibaut Courtois is 9/4 to shut out the home side with Chelsea 4/1 to win without conceding.
It’s hard to envisage the game to be that tight however with Red Devils boss Louis Van Gaal likely to have Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria back at his disposal, which should mean goals.
The both teams to score bet is sure to be popular amongst the neutrals at 13/20 (No 5/4) but with both sides enjoying a goal-glut already this season the ‘Over 3.5 goals’ bet attracts at 84/40 with 22-goals coming at either end of the pitch in United’s last five games.
As big a game as United v Chelsea is there is no question that Saturday’s Real Madrid v Barcelona trumps everything this weekend.
Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos are likely to return for the European Champions, having missed the midweek trip to Anfield in the Champions League, while a certain Luis Suarez makes his competitive debut for Barca.
The Whites are 13/10 for all three points with Barcelona 15/8 and the draw 14/5.
The first goalscorer market is like a who’s who of world football.
Just listen to this: Ronaldo 19/5, Messi 9/2, Suarez 5/1, Neymar 6/1, Benzema 13/2 and Bale 15/2.
Four or more goals in the game at 11/8 with BetVictor must be the recommendation for Saturday evening’s El Clasico in what promises to be a very special and significant weekend of football.
Whilst admittedly not as mouth-watering as the pair of United/Chelsea and Real/Barca, both Liverpool and Arsenal should be good for three points in their weekend’s PL games with Sunderland and Hull City respectively.
Arsenal are 8/11 favourites when travelling to the Stadium of Light to face a Black Cats outfit that was annihilated 8-0 at Southampton last weekend, whilst Liverpool are 2/5 favourites when hosting the Tigers at Anfield. The double pays a shade over 11/8 with BetVictor, however new punters can back the double at an enhanced 5/1 with BetVictor in what should prove to be a pair of routine victories.
Webb Simpson failed to defend his Shriners Hospitals for Children’s Open in Las Vegas, however he looks set to make amends as the PGA Tour moves onto Sea Island, Georgia for the McGladrey Classic.
Simpson shot four rounds in the 60’s to finish T4 last week, including a closing 68 where the North Carolina native played holes 15,16 and 17 in -4, only to undo his late work and card a bogey at the last.
He looks excellent value at 12/1 with BetVictor to make amends, whilst Charles Schwartzel can give punters a similar run for their money in the Perth International; the 12/1 joint-favourite with Ryder Cup hero Victor Dubuisson.
