Premier League Bets
With a big weekend for Premier League football coming up, and two key matches involving potentially top four teams, there's a lot to play for and some great free bet offers to claim.
Manchester City meets Tottenham at home at the Etihad Stadium and Chelsea meets Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday 11th November, 2012.
Both games are sure to be packed with action as City and Chelsea chase leaders Manchester United and battle with Tottenham and Liverpool to retain crucial top four positions.
Let's take a look at how all four teams are doing and who will be the bookies favourites.
Man City v Spurs
According to online bookies the 2012/13 Barclay's Premier League title seems to be in the hands of either Manchester City or Manchester United. With this year's competition turning out to be one of the most competitive Premier League competitions ever, there's still plenty of time to make use of all those bookie offers and the increased odds still on offer.
Manchester City are currently third in the Premier League table with 22 points having played 10 games with 6 wins, 4 draws and not a single defeat.
This could be the team for your free bets; particularly in view of their 5-1 victory at White Hart Lane last season - their biggest scoring win against Tottenham.
Mancini's boys always perform well at home, but even with 6 wins to Tottenham's 5 they'll have to work hard to come away with 3 points on the day. The Sky Blues are scoring well, with 18 goals for, and only 8 against.
Tottenham are currently sixth in the league with 17 points having played 10 games with just 5 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. Historically it's always been a close run thing, with Spurs just having the upper hand in win terms beating City on 56 occasions against 52 losses, with 34 draws.
The London club generally have a good record away from home, but it's a crucial match for Tottenham and their manager Andre-Villas Boas. If all goes well three points could make all the difference, but they'll need Defoe to keep scoring goals.
To date he's scored an impressive 5 out of their total of 17 this season, with 14 goals against.
Chelsea v Liverpool
Chelsea are currently second in the Premier League table, just one point behind Manchester United with a total of 23 points having played 10 games with 7 wins, 2 draws, and only a single loss to The Red Devils.
It's a pretty good record so far; 22 goals for, just 10 against, and Mata and Torres scoring 4 apiece. On paper, at least, it looks like it should be Chelsea's match. But let's not forget that last season Liverpool beat Chelsea twice in the Premiership!
Of the four teams playing in the two matches on Sunday, Liverpool are currently trailing 12th in the Premier League table, with just 11 points after playing 10 games and only 2 wins, with 5 draws, and 3 losses.
Many would say that The Reds aren't playing as well as they should be, and certainly it's been a disappointing season for their fans so far. With the sacking of manager Kenny Dalglish, back in May, it seems that Brendan Rodgers and his squad still have a lot to prove.
Historically though, Liverpool come out on top with Liverpool winning 64 times, against Chelsea's 46, with 28 draws and so anything can happen on match day.
