AUGUST 14: FOOTBALL BETTING TIPS

IT was a pretty quiet start to the Premier League – unless you were on my Wolves’ Super Single.

The only real explosives came from Bolton who hammered QPR 4-0 at Loftus Road although Joey Barton did his best to try to ignite a turgid affair between Newcastle and Arsenal.

Hopefully the action will be more thrilling on Sunday and with title contenders Man United and Chelsea in action it should be. Both open with tricky away trips but I’m backing them to get off to flying starts.

I’m most confident about trophy favourites United who have enjoyed a perfect pre-season with seven wins out of seven.

United won at the Hawthorns last season despite having a poor away record in general. In fact they have been victorious on their last seven visits to West Brom.

Sir Alex Ferguson has boosted his squad with the addition of Ashley Young, Phil Jones and David de Gea and will be chasing all three points.

West Brom haven’t changed their squad much but Roy Hodgson will be looking a maybe sneaking a top-10 spot.

United are a best 8-15 with Paddy Power and William Hill and it shows bookies are prepared to give nothing away.

The Baggies are as big as 6-1 with the likes of Hills, Ladbrokes and Chandler with the draw 10-3 at Betfred.

With Javier Hernandez still sidelined Wayne Rooney will be looking to stamp his authority on the season early on and is 9-2 with Coral to score first and 23-20 at Chandler to net at any time.

Chelsea have what looks to be a tougher fixture at Stoke but they have a good record at the Britannia having never lost there in four trips.

Stoke have already won a Europa League tie so maybe they’ll be ahead of the visitors on the fitness front.

However, Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas will be desperate to start with a win and I think he’ll get it.

Like United, though, the Chelsea price is a bit skinny with 7-10 from the likes of bet365, William Hill and Chandler the best you’ll get. Stoke are 5-1 with Coral and the draw 14-5 at Betfred and others.

Didier Drogba, with his physical presence, is likely to get the nod over Fernando Torres to start and is 5-1 with Coral to score first. A decent anytime scorer bet is John Terry at 9-1 with Ladbrokes as he is always a threat at free-kicks and corners, especially with Stoke’s Matthew Upson out.

Hills offer 8-5 on a Man United/Chelsea double and go 6-1 Torres will fail to score in Chelsea’s first five Premier League games (must start v Stoke or bets void) of the season.

There were shocks galore in the Championship on Saturday so hopefully the Sunday crunch will go with form.

Cardiff look a great bet at home to Bristol City after starting their campaign with a 1-0 away win at Bristol City.

A weakened team then knocked Oxford out the Carling Cup so Malky Mackay’s men will be confident as the new boss makes his home bow. Cardiff are 8-11 with William Hill and Chandler with City 9-2 at Ladbrokes.

The Welsh are dealing well with the loss of strikers Jay Bothroyd and Michael Chopra and new boy Kenny Miller marked his debut with the winner at Upton Park.

Miller’s a workhorse who has seemed to improve with age and I fancy him to score at 11-8 with boylesport. To score first the Scotland hitman is 9-2 at bodog, Chandler and Paddy Power.

Blackpool have strangely kept clean sheets in their first two matches, stretching that into extra time in the Carling Cup against Sheffield Wednesday.

It’s unlike Ian Holloway’s men and record that’s likely to go with the visit of Peterborough.

They were darlings of the both teams to score brigade last season and so far Peterborough have kept it up in their first two fixtures.

We’re questioning the new, resilient Blackpool but I can’t resist a bet on both teams to score at 8-13 with Skybet and Stan James.

There is one game in the SPL and Kilmarnock boss Kenny Shiels could get his first win in the SPL – at the 11th attempt.

He had four defeats and four draws as caretaker boss last season and has opened with two draws this time round.

However, Killie’s displays have been decent and I fancy them to beat a shot-shy Hibs side who got lucky at Inverness last week.

Killie are a biggest 7-5 with Ladbrokes and Hills while Hibs are 21-10 at William Hill.
