Price Boost: Champions, Chelsea and Arsenal all boosted
The race to be crowned Premier league champions, or at least secure a coveted top four berth, is well and truly heating up but it seems little will be decided this weekend.
League leaders Chelsea welcome Burnley to the fortress that is Stamford Bridge, Arsenal travel to Crystal Palace with a 21-year unbeaten record and the current champions – who basically never lose at home – are facing Newcastle at the Etihad.
With all three games seemingly already decided some people might be tempted to swerve the three clubs when placing their bets, but with Ladbrokes enhancing the treble from 6/4 to 2/1 there is still plenty of value to be had.
Read on to see why this bet should be filed under banker territory.
Chelsea to beat Burnley
Jose Mourinho teams have always been nigh on impossible to beat in their own back yard and so it has proven at Chelsea once again with the Blues losing just one of their last 40 games in front of their own fans.
Burnley are winless in five – losing four of those games – and with just a solitary victory to show from their 12 away games so far this season another road defeat looks nailed on.
Arsenal to beat Crystal Palace
Last time Palace beat the Gunners in the league Whigfield was at number one with Saturday Night so it’s unlikely that Alan Pardew will like the way his players move this weekend.
Arsenal have won seven of their last eight games in all competitions and while Pardew enjoyed a solid start as Eagles boss, the Selhurst Park fans have been treated to just one win in six home games.
Manchester City to beat Newcastle
The stats show that these two sides love a draw – with 12 of the last 17 meetings ending all square – but don’t be fooled as this game is City’s to win.
The Sky Blues have lost just five times in their last 79 outings at the Etihad and know that Newcastle are not travelling well lately.
Members of the Toon Army have returned home with celebrating a win just three times from the Magpies last 18 games on the road and with Yaya Toure – who has a knack for scoring against the Toon – back in the side City can expect a routine home win.
