Southampton offer best chance of Three-sy safety net
Ladbrokes’ mobile customers can enjoy another weekend of the Three-sy promotion in addition to a mouth-watering line up of Premier League fixtures.
The deal revolves around odds being enhanced or losing bets refunded if certain stipulations are met, the first of which being the promise to treble the odds of your first goalscorer selection should he go on to bag a hat-trick.
Very few are in better goalscoring form than Swansea’s Michu and he is sure to receive special attention from the Norwich back line.
The Spaniard has netted 11 since his summer move from Rayo Vallecano and is as short as 4/1 to open the scoring at the Liberty Stadium. A hat-trick is available at 20/1 and would entitle first-goalscorer backers to a 12/1 pay out should he put the Canaries to the sword.
Interestingly, Grant Holt notched a treble in this fixture last season and, if you think he might do it again, a price of 7/1 says he’ll break the deadlock in this game.
Ladbrokes will refund all losing first goalscorer bets (as a free bet) if the team represented by your selection provides three different scorers and, with a huge game due to take place between Manchester City and United, we’re all hoping for a goal-fest.
It looks as though the opposite will happen judging from recent meetings, but the vast amount of attacking talent on show means that either team can put multiple names on the scoresheet. From a neutral’s perspective, this would be the desired outcome and it could well provide punters with a valuable safety net on their first goalscorer punts.
Losing correct score stakes will also be refunded as freebies should the game you bet on finish 3-0.
With Reading due to visit Southampton in the biggest of the basement battles this weekend, their leaky defence could see a rejuvenated Saints side win comfortably.
The home defence is far from watertight and the Royals aren’t bad in the final third either, but they’ve shot themselves in the foot more than once at the back and if their frontmen have on off-day, Southampton could easily win it 3-0.
