Man Utd Tipped Almost Three Times As Much As Chelsea In OLBG Tipster Competition
Friday 02 December 2011 at 09:56
This Saturday last season’s Premiership winners and runners up face tough away matches in the live games, the early kick off is Newcastle v Chelsea whilst the evening match will be Aston Villa v Man Utd. Man Utd are slightly shorter odds than Chelsea but they have proved far more popular with OLBG Tipstes with Man Utd attracting almost three times as many tips to beat Aston Villa as Chelsea have to beat Newcastle.
Newcastle Look Good Odds To Upset Chelsea
Chelsea may be the favourites to beat Newcastle at St James Park on Saturday but OLBG Tipsters disagree with the bookies as Newcastle have been the most popular outcome, attracting 48.6% of tips at the time of writing at odds of 11/4 with SkyBet and Ladbrokes. One of the OLBG Tipsters backing the home side is Hogsback:
“I don't think Newcastle United at home at St. James Park can be easily brushed over at any time. Given they are currently in fourth place in the Premier League their odds against Chelsea look big. The Geordie's are unbeaten at home and have lost only one game all season. They came away with another well earned point against Manchester United and can overcome fifth placed Chelsea. The Londoners have spluttered by their high standards and manager Andre Villas-Boas is increasingly coming under pressure. He has big named players but has to handle them and the high flying Magpie's will be a tough proposition.”
A Chelsea win is the second most popular outcome in this match but at odds of just 11/10 with Bet365 it is surprising to see them so unfancied with just 30% of tips, that makes the struggling side only slightly more tipped than the draw which is 5/2 with Betfred and has attracted 21.4% of tips at the moment.
Man Utd Prove Extremely Popular For Saturday Evening Match
Man Utd have attracted almost three times as many tips to beat Aston Villa despite not being too much of a shorter price than Chelsea, a huge 83.1% of OLBG tipsters have gone for the away side here at the time of writing and they are backing Man Utd at odds of 8/11 with Bet365 and Paddy Power. Amongst those backing Man Utd is Micko70:
“Manchester United are unbeaten away in the league, in their 6 away games to date they have won 4 and drawn 2, scored 11 and conceded only 3 goals, they have scored in every league game this season and kept 6 clean sheets from 13 games, 3 of those were away. Villa have only lost once at home this season, they have won 3 and drawn the other 2, they have scored 10 and conceded 6 at home, they have failed to score in 4 games this season, they have also kept 4 clean sheets but 3 of those games were 0-0. I expect another Utd away win.”
The draw has so far been a very unpopular outcome for this match, only 5.1% of tipsters are backing that outcome at odds of 14/5 with Stan James and it is Stan James who are best price on the home win also at 19/4 currently, 11.9% of OLBG tipsters have gone for that. According to OLBG tipsters Man Utd and Newcastle look good value this weekend. Click here for more Premiership Tips or to place your bets click on any of the orange bookie links above.
