Meanwhile, champions Manchester City host
Chelsea, And Wolves welcome Newcastle

The battle
for the Premier League title is neck and neck right now
between Liverpool and Manchester City, with both sides keeping their eyes
firmly on the prize. This coming Saturday afternoon (9 February), Liverpool
will look to reclaim top spot when Bournemouth visit Anfield – temporarily at
least. For the very next day, defending champions and current table toppers
Manchester City host Chelsea, while on Monday evening Newcastle head to Wolves.

First things first

a new customer and with the Premier League campaign now past the halfway stage,
there should be a wide range of promotions and special offers available to you.

Where should I be investing my money?

First up,
the clash between Liverpool and Bournemouth at Anfield. The Reds have only
managed draws in their last two league outings and as a result have dropped
down into second place on goal difference – they are now out at 2.37 to win
their first ever Premier League title.

Bournemouth,
by way of comparison, sit solidly in mid-table, in little danger of going down
but with equally little hope of making inroads on the top four. The side have
however lost their last seven league games in a row and can hardly head to
Anfield brimming with confidence.

And it is
indeed Liverpool who come into this match as the red-hot favourites to take all
three points. You can back the home side to get back to winning ways at just
1.20, while Bournemouth are all the way out at 12.00 to record what would be a
shock victory – a draw is priced in the middle at 7.00, according to Oddsshark.

And we are
fully expecting Liverpool to stroll to victory here. A comprehensive, 3-0 win
for the Reds comes in at 8.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$40
pay out, with Sadio Mane at 2.05 to get his name on the score sheet.

City can regain top spot with win over Chelsea

The
following day, defending champions Manchester City could once again take top
spot if they beat Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium. The Cityzens have won their last two league outings and are now the
favourites to retain their title, being priced at just 1.72 to do so.

Chelsea, in
stark contrast, have slipped out of the title reckoning and have lost two of
their last three league outings, dropping down to fourth in the process, just
two points ahead of Manchester United in fifth. The Blues remain at just 1.72
to ensure a top four finish come the end of the season.

And it is
City who come into this match as the clear favourites to continue their recent
winning streak. You can back the champions to make it three victories in a row
at just 1.45, while Chelsea are out at 6.50 to take the points – a draw is
priced in the middle at 4.50.

This should
be a comfortable afternoon for the home side. A 3-1 win for City is priced
competitively at 12.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any
investment, while you can almost triple your money by backing a combo bet of a
City win, coupled with both teams to score, at 2.87.

Newcastle need points to steer clear of
relegation danger

And
finally, Monday Night Football this week sees Wolves host Newcastle, with the
visitors looking for three points to ease their relegation fears. Wolves sit
seventh in the table and have won their last three league games in a row.

Newcastle,
meanwhile, hover just two points above the relegation zone and are in desperate
need of points. However, the Magpies are out at 9.00 to drop down into the EFL
Championship.

And
regarding this match, it is Wolves who come in as the clear favourites to win
again. You can back the home side to make it four wins on the bounce at just
1.75, while Newcastle are out at 4.75 to collect three valuable points – a draw
is priced in the middle at 3.60.

And we are
expecting home advantage to be a deciding factor here. A narrow, 2-1 win for
Wolves is priced at 9.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$47.50 pay
out, while you can more than double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the
game at 2.20.
