Seeing RED

Not sure what to make of it all last week! Did we jinx Smeltzy? Poor bugger having to have 50 stitches with plastic surgery!! Betstar was overwhelmed with bets on our special so we thank you for that and a big well done, so with your refund back in your account… another tasty treat is on the way shortly…

Now, with Brisbane crowned back-to-back champions and the A-League over for another season, our focus turns to the incredible rollercoaster that is the English Premier League.

Man City has had more chances than Matthew Newton, but they continue to shoot themselves in the foot. City’s last shot is none other than a little cross-town derby against Manchester United… are punters prepared to give Mancini’s men one more chance?

The Manchester derby is as close to a Grand Final as you’ll get in the EPL this late in the season… both City and United have played 35 matches, United on top by 3 points to second-placed City, however, City have a better goal difference (+6) so simply a win here for City will put them top again and in the box seat for the title… amazing stuff and how bloody exciting for us football nutters is this!

Man City will go around favourites at $2.20 to win, United $3.15 and Draw $3.40. So it’s hard to believe that United are then title favourites at $1.47 and City at $2.70… it just tells you that punters think – ok, they might win Tuesday but they’ll just stuff up again!

Speaking of stuff ups, how many chances do Spurs want to finish in the Top 4? They’ve absolutely choked up in the last few months, remember when we said they were a rough chance for the title in January? Paaaa-leeeease! So, it’s last chance saloon, they have to win v Blackburn this week — $1.37 is way too short for a side with the jitters… Rovers, who are fighting for EPL survival, are $7.80… definitely worth a thought!

Ok, it’s that part you’ve been waiting for… Betstar special time! This week Betstar is offering a ‘Red’ special giving you the amazing price of $14 for Arsenal (to beat Stoke), Liverpool (to beat Norwich) and United (to beat City)… just because we want to look after you! Max bet is $50.

Remember if you’re not already a part of the crew at Betstar.com.au, when you sign-up please make sure you enter ‘GGARMY’ in the promo code to support Australia’s Football Fan network - the Green and Gold Army.

Until next week, happy punting!
