Sunday Stroll For Chelsea And City

The European champions and Premier League champions kick off their Premier League campaign on Sunday. Both are odds on favourites to win with Chelsea 4/6 and Manchester City 1/5 and both are expected to cruise to victory with William Hill offering 13/1 that Chelsea and Manchester City win by 3 or more goals. The City game against Southampton is 4/6 to produce the most goals on Super Sunday, with Wigan vs Chelsea 9/4.

Victor Moses has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer and will be 11/1 to score first against his potential suitors. Franco Di Santo is an ex Chelsea striker, it is 12/1 that he scores first for Wigan and Wigan win. The champions look certain to steam roll new boys Southampton but they have a goal machine in Rickie Lambert. It is 25/1 that he scores at anytime and the Saints score an unlikely victory.

“Both Chelsea and City will want to send out a message to their rivals with big victories and the odds suggest that they will do so with relative ease,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

You Bet: Asamoah Gyan Will Be The Best Of The Transfer Deadline Deals

Following the wranglings that took place during the final hours of the transfer window, William Hill have opened a book on which of the last minute signings will end the season with the most goals. Hills make Asamoah Gyan the 11/10 favourite ahead of 3/1 Franco Di Santo and 10/3 Eidur Gudjohnsen. Rodrigo Moreno and Aleksander Hleb are relative outsiders at 6/1 and 8/1 respectively.

Hills have also opened a match bet between Darren Bent and Gyan. Hills are offering 2/5 that Bent scores more than Gyan from now until the end of the season, while Gyan is priced at 7/4.

“At £13 million, Gyan has a lot to live up to, but compared to his rivals, we think that he could well deliver the goods, however, it seems unlikely that he will outscore Darren Bent, who has proven himself to be one of the most prolific scorers in the league in recent years,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Transfer Deadline Day Specials:

Score Most Goals: 11/10 Asamoah Gyan; 3/1 Franco Di Santo; 10/3 Eidur Gudjohnsen; 6/1 Rodrigo Moreno; 8/1 Aleksander Hleb

Bent/Gyan Match Bet: 2/5 Bent (-2); 7/4 Asamoah Gyan (+2)
