Second in the table, Manchester United, dropped another 2 points on Boxing Day in the 2-2 home draw with Burnley, giving City the chance to extend their lead tonight. Yesterday’s 2-2 draw was their second in a row, and has now seen Jose Mourinho’s men drop 4 points in less than a week.

Harry Kane Golden Boot odds slashed to 8/13 after second Hat-trick in a week

Harry Kane fired his second hat-trick inside a week against Southampton yesterday, and he is now 3 goals ahead in the race for the Golden Boot, and is miles ahead in the betting to be the league’s top scorer.

Harry Kane Top Premier League Goalscorer Odds

Kane is now a best price of 8/13 with Betfair and Paddy Power in the Premier League top goalscorer betting for this season. He is around 1/2 with the majority of layers, with the odd one even going as low as 4/7.

His closest rivals in the betting are Liverpool’s Mohamad Salah (15 goals), who is 6/1 with 888Sport, and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (12 goals), who is also 6/1, with William Hill.

Aguero is a full 6 goals behind Kane, but such is the way City play, the market hasn’t totally ruled out the Argentine getting enough opportunities to catch the England’s Kane.


Six Hat-tricks This Calendar Year

Yesterday’s Hat-trick seen Kane beat two long standing records held by England goal-scoring legend, Alan Shearer. Kane not only beat Shearer’s record on 5 Hat-tricks in a calendar year (the record was previously 5), he also beat Shearer’s record of 36 goals in a calendar year, both records dated back to 1995 – the season before Shearer’s remarkable Euro 96 campaign, and record breaking transfer from Blackburn to Newcastle. Not bad company for Kane to be in.

Kane is currently on 18 goals in the race for this season’s golden boot, 3 ahead of Mohamad Salah on 15 goals, and 6 ahead of the Manchester City duo of Raheem Sterling, and Sergio Aguero, both on 12 goals.

Spice up the Premier League this Xmas with some Arsenal betting specials

With the 2017/18 English Premier League season now in full swing, there is a clutch of big games during December which will go a long way in sorting the wheat from the chaff at both ends of the table.

As things stand, there is a stale look to the ‘Outright Betting’ markets for the Premier League, simply because it looks as though Manchester City are away and gone.

Unbeaten in 15 games with 14 victories so far, Pep Guardiola’s City are yet to skip a beat. Remarkably, their main striker Sergio Aguero has only netted 9 of their 46 goals in the top flight this season, with Harry Kane and the lightning hot Mo Salah bossing the Premier League ‘Golden Boot’ race on double figures already.

The Blues have been helped no end by the emergence of Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus as top class attacking midfielders / strikers in their own right.

City rivals Manchester United are also playing some seriously good football this season and have won 11 of their 15 matches, yet sit still sit 8 points off the leaders, who are loking good things to lift the trophy at the end of the season barring a complete disaster.

If you want to spice up your weekend’s football bets why not place a bet on a Premier league game with Freebets.co.uk. One way to do that is by betting on the ‘Specials’ markets with your favourite bookmakers online; or maybe even try out a new bookie and grab yourself a free welcome bet to boot.

Take SkyBet’s special football betting markets on Arsenal for example – they currently offer ‘Arsenal To Finish Higher Than’ betting odds.

The first is their fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur where Arsenal are 8/13 (1.63) to finish ahead of Spurs with the Gunners currently sitting 3 points ahead of them as things stand.

Second in this market at 11/8 (2.38) is Liverpool, who are in fourth place, a point above Arsenal. However, Arsenal and fourth place is a bit of a magnet pairing in recent years and as well as Liverpool are doing now, they could be over-reliant on the fitness of Mohamed Salah, so don’t be surprised to see that 11/8 bet land comfortably.

Next up in the market of four is fellow Londoners Chelsea at 5/2 (3.50), which will obviously be a little more difficult to catch. The West Londoners have shipped three losses already, but are starting to find some real form at just the right time and Arsenal will have to enjoy a serious run of results just to get on terms with the Blues, let alone go ahead of them.

Catching Manchester United is the 5/1 outsider bet, but the odds of 11/8 about Arsenal finishing ahead of Liverpool is a very tempting bet.

So while the ‘Outright Winner’ market for the Premier League might have a ‘no-play’ look to it, there is are plenty of other football betting opportunities for you to look out for, along with a wide range of pre-match markets such as “First Goalscorer” and Scorecasts.

Use your imagination and shop around the more obscure markets and you can unearth some real value bets to spice up your Christmas football betting.

Latest Carabao Cup Betting – City favourites

The Carabao Cup round of 16 is finished, and there with 4 of the Premier League big boys still involved, it makes for a mouth watering prospect.

Of the big 4 teams left, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side are the favourites, at a best price of 11/5 with Ladbrokes. City struggled to get past Wolves on Tuesday, only winning on penalties, but despite that, the bookies still see them as the strongest team left in the competition.

Main rivals Manchester United are second favourites, currently at 16/5 with Bet365. United certainly can’t be discounted, Mourinho loves collecting trophies, and at this stage of the competition, he will be eyeing up another piece of silverware.

Mourinho also has a great record in the competition, having already won it 4 times with Chelsea (3 times) and Manchester United (once, last season).

Next in the betting come Antonio Conte’s Chelsea team, who after beating Everton 2-1 on Wednesday, are 7/2 to win the Carabao Cup with William Hill. Chelsea look off the pace in the league this season, so concentrating on the cups might suit them, making 7/2 look like decent value.

The final one of the big 4 teams in the betting is Arsenal. The Gunners are 6/1 with BetVictor. It’s probably harder to make a case for Arsenal, as in the past Wenger has tended to stick with his kids all throughout the competition, even playing them in 2 legged semi-finals in the past (back in the days when Jack Wilshere was a youth player).

As good as Arsenal’s youth players are, I can’t really see them giving the likes of Chelsea, City and United much difficulty. That said, if the draw is kind to them, they could still be in with a chance.

With the Carabao Cup over with for this week now, attention turns back to Premier League Betting this weekend, with Manchester United hosting Tottenham at Old Trafford on Saturday (kick-off 12.30pm), the stand out fixture of the weekend.

Alvaro Morata cut in top goalscorer betting after hat-trick

Despite scoring a hat-trick against Stoke on Saturday, and joining Romelu Lukaku and Sergio Aguero at the top of the goalscoring charts on 6 goals, Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata is still only 4th favourite in the Premier League Top Goalscorer Betting to win the Golden Boot this season.

Morata is still behind Lukaku at 11/4, Kane at 3/1, and Aguero at 7/2, currently coming in at a best price of 5/1 with Betvictor.

Despite both being on 5 goals, English duo Jamie Vardy and Raheem Sterling seem to be getting written off by punters, with bookies having the Leicester man (who missed a penalty on Saturday) at 20/1, and Man City’s Sterling out at a massive looking 66/1.

In all honesty, Morata could have had a couple more than the 3 he managed in the win over Stoke at the weekend, such was the amount of chances Chelsea created later on in the match.

The Spaniard seems to have settled in well at Stamford Bridge, and is already looking the part, making him a serious candidate to be the Premier League top scorer this season.

Man City Heavy Odds On Favourite For Title After Beating Everton

It was arguably Manchester City’s biggest obstacle in the title run in, but yesterday’s 3-2 defeat over Everton has seen Manchester City’s odds to win the title slashed.

Before yesterday, City were around 4/6 to win the league, they are now a best price of 2/7 with Coral to win their 2nd title in 3 years – most bookies have them at 1/4.

I’ve written before, and I’ll write it again, I believe City should have had this league wrapped up weeks ago – Jose Mourinho certainly would have done, if he had been Man City manager (and I say that as no fan of Mourinho).

Chelsea’s victory at Anfield last week gave Pellegrini another chance, and got him off a rather large hook. If he blows it again, I wouldn’t blame City if they got rid of him, as it would be a massive underachievement.

Liverpool are now out to a best price of 7/2 with Paddy Power (£50.00 Free Bet), they visit Crystal Palace on Monday night in what is almost a last gasp attempt to keep their Premier League hopes alive, hoping – I would imagine – that the Palace players are already on the beech.

If you like backing out and out long shots, Chelsea can be backed at 40/1 with Bet365 to sneak in the back door and snatch the title.

4th Place Finish Betting – Arsenal Still Favourites

Despite beating Arsenal with ease yesterday and putting the outcome of a Top 4 finish in their own hands, Everton still find themselves comfortably in second place when it comes to the betting for a Top 4 finish.

Arsenal still hold 4th place ahead of Everton, but only by 1 point, and Everton have a game in hand along with – maybe more crucially – a better goal difference (Everton are +21, Arsenal are +16).

All these hammerings Arsenal have taken against their main title rivals (originally), and now Top 4 rivals, could well come back to haunt them.

A five goals swing in Everton’s favour at this stage of the season could be very crucial, and shows just how bad Arsenal were yesterday, as just one goal back for them would have seen the goal difference gap close by two goals.

Despite all this, the bookies still have Arsenal as favourites to claim 4th place. They are odds on everywhere, and the 4/6 available with William Hill and BetVictor is the best price around at the moment.

Everton are obviously odds against, and the 8/5 with Ladbrokes is the stand out price on the Toffeemen making the top 4. If you are an eternal optimist, Man Utd are 33/1 and Tottenham are 50/1.

Everton still have to host both Manchester United and City in the run in, while the Gunners have now finished their daunting run of matches, and have a relatively easier looking run in – this is no doubt part of the reason why Everton are regarded as the outsiders.

That said, Everton are the form side, while Arsenal looked pretty toothless yesterday and also have a lot of injuries to contend with.

Can Everton be trusted to keep up this form though? They are inexperienced in this type of run in, while Arsenal regularly leave it this late to secure Champions League football, and therefore know what to do in these situations.

There are pros and cons in both camps, but on the whole I can see why Arsenal have maintained favouritism in this market.

Latest Premier League Betting – City Even Money Favourites

Last night seen Manchester City take a giant leap in their pursuit of their second title in 3 years. Sometimes a win means more than just the 3 points you get, and last night’s 3-0 victory at Old Trafford was one of those results.

By winning last night, City not only overcame a tricky match in which 3 points were far from guaranteed, they also sent out a message to Chelsea that they are well up for this fight.

City are now only 3 points behind Chelsea, with 2 games in hand, and a 13 goal better goal difference – all this sees them as favourites in the betting at a best price of Even money with Coral (they are 5/6, 10/11 with most other bookies).

City still have a lot of work to do, and they have to visit the Emirates on Saturday – and despite what anybody says, they can’t take this fixture lightly. Chelsea are away at Crystal Palace on the same day, so it could all change again this weekend. Chelsea are a best price of 12/5 with Skybet (£30.00 Free Bet Available).

Onto Liverpool, and the countries form team are now into a best price of 7/2 with William Hill. They entertain Sunderland at Anfield tonight, where a win will take them back up to second in the table, 1 point behind Chelsea with the same number of matches played.

Liverpool are well regarded as the third team in this – now – 3 horse race, but the form they are currently in, they can beat anybody at the moment. Both City and Chelsea have to visit Anfield this season, but will Liverpool be able to continue this remarkable run throughout the rest of March, all through April, and into May?

That is a big ask, but when you look at it another way it is only another 8 matches, and Liverpool have had no European distractions, so in theory should be the fresher team.

Whatever perspective you look at it from though, the remainder of the season is unlikely to pan out in the way we expect it too. There will probably be plenty more twists and turns in this so far very entertaining and exciting Premier League season.

Premier League Winner Odds – Liverpool Odds Shorten

Without kicking a ball, Manchester City find themselves back at the top of the Premier League betting, after both Arsenal and Chelsea slipped up in their midweek fixtures. City are now 6/5 favourites with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bet Available To New Customers).

I suppose the big losers in a way are Chelsea (despite still being top), they must really regard a 1-1 draw away at West Brom as 2 points dropped, and by all accounts, it nearly ended up with all 3 points dropped.

But how can I, or anyone, say they have mucked up, they are still top for goodness sake! And even if City win their game in hand, they will only draw level with Chelsea. Chelsea are a best price of 17/10 with Paddy Power.

Most observers would say that Arsenal have had a bad run lately (dropping 5 points in their last two fixtures, albeit tricky ones), and yet they are still only 1 point off the top of the Premier League, and 2 ahead of City (having played a game more).

Arsenal are now 10/1 fourth favourites with BetVictor.

And while the top 3 have been dropping points, Liverpool have dragged themselves back into contention.

Although Liverpool were expected to beat Fulham, the manner of their victory must be pleasing to Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool had to fight to the end, and they came from behind twice, although the flip side to that is that they can’t keep gifting the opposition sloppy goals, as it will catch them out soon. And Liverpool can’t afford any more stupid slip ups if they want to have a chance of winning the league.

The best odds on Liverpool winning the title is 17/2 with Boyelsports, they were 14/1 prior to the latest round of fixtures.

Liverpool are now only 4 points behind Chelsea, and have no European distractions, so I’d take them seriously.

The league looks like it could go right down to the wire this season, and coming into the last 3 or 4 matches, it could simply be who handles the pressure the best.

I did think it was City’s to lose, but over the last couple of weeks, I can’t help but feel that if Manchester City had Jose Mourinho in charge, this league would be over. City have the best squad (by a mile), and although they have a decent manage in Pellegrini, I don’t think he is anywhere near the best manager in the league.

If it does come down to who can handle the pressure the best, then Chelsea have the best man in the dug out to deal with that situation.
