THERE were major changes in the EPL betting yesterday after Liverpool finally put on s how to beat Chelsea 2-0.
After a third league win on the bounce the Reds were slashed by Ladbrokes to 4-1 to finish in the top four.
And the Stamford Road outfit are out to 4-7 for a successful title defence with Liverpool into 50-1. It's 7-2 Man United and 6-1 Arsenal.
But manager Roberto Mancini is still the 5-2 second favourite to be the next top-flight managerial casualty behind 2-1 West Ham favourite Avram Grant. Newcastle boss Chris Hughton has surely secured his future on Tyneside with a 1-0 win away to Arsenal and is now 14-1 to face the chop. The Geordies lie fifth in the table but are 25-1 with Ladbrokes for a top-four finish.
In the SPL my advice to back Hearts to win the Edinburgh derby was spot on. And the super single came up in the final minute when Hibs striker Derek Riordan was sent off. I advised taking a red card with William Hill at 2-1.
I also predicted Steven Naismith to score first for Rangers at St Mirren. And although he netted the Ibrox side's second in a 3-1 win the first was an OG so you'll be in the money.
