Kane at the Lane

Live Streaming Update: Barca, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich & more

Here’s news just in from bet365, summarising upcoming fixtures as well as new live streaming direct from their site/mobile app.  

The international break is almost at an end with a mouth-watering selection of fixtures announcing the return of league football in style this weekend, and bet365 are offering a host of fantastic betting and Live Streaming opportunities!

Premier League

The fixture grabbing all the headlines at the moment is Tottenham v Liverpool, as Jürgen Klopp takes the reigns at Liverpool in what will be his managerial debut in the Premier League. The self-proclaimed Normal One was welcomed to Merseyside with rabid anticipation by Liverpool fans and the liverpool-kloppGerman has promised the Anfield faithful a title in the next four years. The weight of expectation will be enormous for the former Dortmund manager, but whether he can deliver three points at the weekend using the current Liverpool squad is debatable. Tottenham are arguably one of the form teams in the league at the moment, beating first placed Manchester City in a 4-1 thriller recently. Liverpool are without captain Jordan Henderson and summer signings Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino whilst Spurs are without Son Heung Min and a few periphery players.

Spurs are narrow favourites to take the win at White Hart Lane at 7/5 (2.40) and are unbeaten at home in the league this season, whilst The Reds are a touch longer at 15/8 (2.87). Many will be backing Daniel Sturridge to find the net again this weekend after scoring two goals against Villa recently and he’s 5/1 (6.00) to score first or last and 6/4 (2.50) to find the net anytime. Having forced his way into the Spurs squad and more recently the England team, Dele Alli has seen plenty of speculative backing to score this weekend, and he’s 10/3 (4.33) to do just that.

Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning ways after a disastrous few weeks, and are 1/3 (1.33) to break their duck against Aston Villa in a particularly inviting home fixture. Villa have lost their last four Premier League games and since their opening day win against newly-promoted Bournemouth have gained just one point from seven matches. In the last six seasons Chelsea have won their home matches against Aston Villa by an aggregate score of 24-8, and both teams have recorded only one clean sheet each this season in the league, so goals should be on the cards. Eden Hazard is 11/2 (6.50) to net first in the encounter, and scored in both games during the international break for Belgium with two assists and a goal in his last three Premier League matches. A slightly riskier option to consider though is Willian at 10/1 (11.00). He has scored Chelsea’s last three goals, and also bagged a brace for Brazil in their World Cup Qualifier this week against Venezuela.

La Liga

Over in La Liga title heavyweights Real Madrid and Barcelona are both suffering injury crises and entertain Levante and Rayo Vallecano respectively. bet365 will be Live Streaming all the action so you can watch the likes of Luis Suarez, Neymar and Ronaldo as they blitz through their Barcelona_Messi_2competition at will. News from Spain this week is suggesting that Barcelona are in big trouble, with many of their key players facing time on the side-lines with injuries. Summer signing Arda Turan is still not able to play for the Blaugrana and it’s being reported that Barca will petition the Court of Arbitration for Sport to overturn their transfer embargo in a last-ditch effort to bolster their squad. In spite of this, they’re heavy favourites to dispatch Rayo with ease and are priced 1/7 (1.14) to take the three points on Saturday. Suarez and Neymar are both expected to start and both find themselves short-priced to score in the encounter, with the Uruguayan coming in at 2/5 (1.40) and Neymar priced at 4/11 (1.36). Los Blancos will be lining up without the likes of Karim Benzema, James Rodriguez, Luka Modric and centre back pairing Ramos and Pepe which may leave Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez with a selection headache on Saturday. Regardless Real are 1/12 (1.083) to come through on the day and 13/8 (2.62) to do so with Levante managing to notch a consolation goal.

Bundesliga

bet365 are also streaming plenty of Bundesliga action this weekend with the highlight being Bayern Munich’s trip to Werder Bremen. Bayern’s season so far has been spectacular and many fancy them to lift the Champions League come the end of the season. The Bavarians will be Bayern_Munich_Mullerkeen to maintain their 100% start in the league and they are 1/5 (1.20) to do so, with the aggregate score from their last three trips to the Weserstadion 13-0. Thomas Müller (pictured, right) has been in imperious form for Bayern this season, scoring 10 goals in 11 games in all competitions and he is 3/1 to score first on Saturday. Equally Robert Lewandowski is arguably one of the hottest properties in international football at the moment and his sensational performances this season have seen him net 16 goals in just 11 games in all competitions. With the mercurial Polish captain being in such staggering form, he is the favourite to open the scoring on Saturday at 2/1 (3.00).

2015/16 Premier League Pre-Season Markets & Value Bets

Before the 2015/16 Barclays Premier League season kicks off, the bravest of punters are making their long-term predictions.  Everyone knows just how tricky it is to predict how the transfer dealings will impact each team.  Even some of the most expensive signings can turn out to be total flops , whilst some clubs manage to find real gems who take the competition by complete surprise. Here, we’re taking a look at a couple of the pre-season Premier League betting markets to ponder what might be…

Top Goalscorer Market

The usual suspects in Aguero, Rooney and Costa are of course in the mix again to score the most goals in 2015/16.  But there are some other good prospects to win it for the upcoming season.

Liverpool new boy Christian Benteke

Christian Benteke

Following their stunning strikes in a pre-season friendlies for Liverpool and Spurs respectively, we think that having a bit of Christian Benteke at 16/1 or Harry Kane at 12/1 look like pretty good value.

Benteke’s record for Aston Villa speaks for itself: 42 goals in 89 appearances over 3 seasons.  One would have to imagine that the Belgian will receive much better service at his new club, so the chances of him bettering his debut 2012-13 season at the Villans (19 Premier League goals) where his contribution kept them from the relegation zone (they finished 15th), are high.

Top Goalscorer

Top Goalscorer market odds

Whereas no Englishman has won the Premier League golden boot since Kevin Phillips in 1999/2000, there is a good chance that this could change in 2015/16.  Harry Kane’s 21 goals in 34 appearances last season was a club record alongside the likes of Teddy Sheringham, Jürgen Klinsmann and the world’s most expensive player, Gareth Bale.

As the season wore on, Kane had to deal with a lot of extra attention from opposition defenders after it became clear that great goals against the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal, where Spurs recorded stirring victories, were no flash in the pan. Kane at 12/1 for top goalscorer looks to also be a decent value bet, even if it is a little short for our liking.


 

To Win Outright Market

To the question of who will be crowned Premier League champions, and at this stage most can only realistically see this being either Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester City.  Manchester United should be back in the mix after spending big yet again, but it would be an absolute delight to see the a non-fancied team spring a real shock.

So, if you were going for an outsider bet in order to take a punt on massive odds, would it be a total waste of time and money?   Very probably, history suggests.  Liverpool are a team that 14nearly managed to pull off such a shock a couple of seasons back, only to fall agonisingly short. The Reds are at 20/1 which shows how wary the bookmakers are of them doing something special again.

For the optimistic, Leicester City can be backed at 2000/1 and potentially higher at some bookmakers.  The Foxes managed to beat the drop with a strong finish last season and a sustained, consistent continuation of that form would make for a huge payday.

Outright Market for the new Prem season

For odds on teams with perhaps an even more realistic possibility of doing it, you could look to Tottenham (100/1), Everton (250/1) or Southampton (200/1).  This is where the stars would have to align perfectly for one of those teams and the current favourites would need to all be Spurs - EPL Week 36 Predictionstaking points of each other.  The issue that these ‘top 8’ teams have had since the Premier League began is consistency.

We know that on top form, these teams can beat any other in the Premier League. The problem is that no team can maintain top form over an entire season, what with the mix of Southampton FC Oddsinjuries, suspensions, different conditions, bad luck etc.  However, the top  3 or 4 teams always seem to have that extra bit of quality and squad depth that means that they’re able to win even though they aren’t on top form.

There are, of course, quite a few other pre-season markets to examine such as Relegated Teams, Top 3,4,5,6 & 7 Teams, Top Newcomer, TriCast and much more. There’s even a market on the Sides To Go Unbeaten in 2015/16’s Premier League, and Chelsea are 125/1 for example.

We’ve taken this market information online from bookmaker bet365, who have the most generous of all joining offers with a £200 deposit bonus (Find our review of their mobile app here.)  As usual, we’ll be keeping track of football scores with great interest throughout the season to see how things develop.
