Betting round-up: Premier League heavyweights poised to strike

Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City are all expected to win in the Premier League this weekend, but there is value to be found in the Saturday games
The underdogs are being given little chance by the bookies of springing a surprise in the Premier League on Saturday, with Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City all heavy favourites.

Liverpool, fresh from destroying Tottenham Hotspur 5-0 last time out, are paying $1.20 at bet365 to beat Cardiff City ($13.00), with the draw at Anfield available at $6.50.

United are only slightly longer at $1.33 to see off the visit of West Ham United ($8.00) to Old Trafford, where the draw is priced at $5.25.

And City ($1.33) are expected to account for Fulham ($9.00) at Craven Cottage, with bet365 offering $5.00 for the draw.


Load up on Newcastle to beat Palace at $2.37

Back Hull to upset West Brom at $4.33

Elsewhere, Newcastle United ($2.37) are marginal favourites to win away to relegation-threatened Crystal Palace, while Stoke City ($2.25) are being backed in to beat Aston Villa ($3.25) at the Britannia Stadium.

Norwich ($3.75) are at long odds to beat Sunderland ($2.00) at their Stadium of Light home, while manager-less West Brom, without a win in six games, are surprisingly short at $1.83 to beat Hull City ($4.33), with the draw at $3.50 in that one.

And that draw could be a good bet, given Steve Bruce's men have shared the spoils. Delve a little deeper, and Stephane Sessegnon could be worth a look in the first goalscorer market, with the attacking midfielder at $8.50 to score at any time.
