Premier League Soccer Betting & Preview – Week Three

August 24th, 2010

The 2010-11 Premier League is certainly finding its feet, with the top three already looking very similar to that which ended last season.

Chelsea are the only side in the Premiership still to have won all their matches, and could be worth an early title-winning punt at Ladbrokes.com.au before the odds shorten.

Blackburn Rovers will kick off the action this weekend as they welcome the dominant force of Arsenal to Ewood Park. Rovers are sitting in the middle of the ladder this early in the season, having won one and lost one.

Arsenal on the other hand is second on the ladder. Opening the season with a draw and capitalising with a 6-0 thrashing of Blackpool last weekend.

The Gunners are heading into this one as favourites at $1.57 with Ladbrokes.com.au and with Blackburn at $6.50, it is hard to see the Londoners losing.

If you want to back the longest odds of the weekend check out Saturday afternoons clash between Chelsea and Stoke. The Blues have scored 12 goals in two games and sit firmly on the top of the ladder.

They head into this one at $1.12 for the win, and while it is hard to see them losing this weekend the $23 odds for Stoke to win are hard to look past.

Liverpool has the chance to get their season off and running. Losing 3-0 to Manchester City over the weekend see them sitting in the bottom four, but they head into this weekend as favourites.

Up against West Brom on Sunday, the Kop are at $1.22 for the three points, and if they manage to deliver, will claim their first win of the season.

If you want to get in on all the soccer betting action taking place in the Premier League this weekend then head to Ladbrokes.com.au. There is no better place online when it comes to odds and markets on the beautiful game!
