The big blue switcheroo

Those who normally come early for Manchester United, this season see Chelsea as the eventual Premier League champions.

Punters see the Blues like Prince Harry, showing just about everything with outstanding effort even away from home! They’re the only team so far to win their first three matches. To win the EPL they’ve come in from $6 to $4.50 in just two weeks but we still think City $2.35 and United at $3 will have a fair say when push comes to shove.

Swansea  sailing with new manager Michael Laudrup and a number of new signings hitting their straps; they are $2.08 to continue their perfect start to the season against Sunderland $3.45. United just did what they had to do against Fulham and at $1.51 away to Southampton minus Wayne Rooney could be a tricky one – the Saints are $5.90 for the upset.

Liverpool again find themselves in the big one of the weekend. They’ll be disappointed not to have held on against City with Skrtl’s 'shkng bck pss t th glkppr' but The Kop will be happy with their performance overall. It’s been a slow start to the season for the Gunners and their fans are still adjusting their famous song to “0-0 to the Arsenal” but I’m sure they’ll want it back to the old one this weekend. The reds are $1.99 to claim a maiden win this season, Arsenal $3.60 look value, they too would take full points for the first time.

Stop! Special time… This week Betstar’s is offering their popular “Home Sweet Home” EPL special at $6 for Swansea, Spurs and Newcastle all to win in their clashes on the weekend. Max $50 and we’re tipping this one to go mental like last week.

Doughnuts for our charity bet in last two weeks so it’s time to knuckle down and dig this one out. This round I like Man City (v QPR) into Stoke +0.5 line (v Wigan) into Birmingham (v Peterborough) into Man United (v Southampton) our $5 @ $4.12 bringing our balance to $185

Finally, a good time to make you aware that our A-League 2012/13 winners market is up and running. Brisbane are favoured to do it again at $4, Arnie $6 to finally get the choccies with the Mariners, $6 to for Ange to have the magic effect on Melbourne Victory, Glory days back at Perth $6.50 then Sydney FC $7, Adelaide $10, Wellington $12, Jets, Heart $17 and Wanderers $34.

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!
