Another glorious weekend of Premier League football is upon us and, as ever, Ladbrokes’ Three-sy promotion is there for punters to take advantage of via their mobile phones.
The first component of the offer is that all losing correct score bets are refunded as free bets if the game in question finishes 3-0.
With QPR hosting Southampton and their leaky backline, it’s not impossible to envisage the R’s recording their first league win of the season by this comfortable margin.
A price of 16/1 doubts that they’ll do it, but with Southampton constantly left wide open courtesy of their insistence on gung-ho football it could easily come in, especially taking QPR’s own defensive improvements into consideration.
With the 3-0 safety net in place, back a low-scoring home win in this one, with nerves sure to play a big factor in this relegation six-pointer. For Mark Hughes’ to save his job by picking up three points in a 1-0 victory pays out at 9/1 and is well worth a few quid.
The second aspect of this offer involves another bail out; this time in the form of a refunded free bet on any losing first goalscorers if the player in the team you back ends up with three or more different names on the scoresheet.
Man United have got goals in them all over the pitch and have had 13 different players notch this term already.
Javier Hernandez and Robin van Persie are set to lead to line at Carrow Road which is pretty much two different scorers nailed on. With Wayne Rooney not yet ruled out, Ashley Young coming back into form and Danny Welbeck always a threat in the final third, there are any amount of players who can be reasonably expected to beat John Ruddy.
Bearing this in mind, stick your money on the explosive Antonio Valencia to open the scoring at 10/1 due to the fact that, although he is more of a provider than a glory-hunter, he is arguably in the best form of all Man United’s stars at the minute and is sure to be too hot for Norwich.
The final tentacle of this giant, three-armed monster of a promotion is the one that hands punters the opportunity for massive windfall – if your first goalscorer pick bags himself a hat-trick, Ladbrokes will treble – yes, that’s treble – his odds.
Luis Suarez is electric at the moment having scored four in his last four league games to climb to the pinnacle of the Premier League’s scoring charts.
He’s 3/1 to net the first against Wigan and, given the fact that you never know which Latics team is going to turn up, he could just as easily score five as he could none at all.
Emmanuel Adebayor also has a chance to claim the match ball when he makes another return to the Emirates with Tottenham. He’s a lofty 8/1 to break the deadlock in the North London derby and, given Arsenal’s defensive woes of late, it’s not too outlandish to see him run in a treble on his old stomping ground.
