Football Bets : Football Spread Betting – 17/02/10

Football spread betting fans will be debating whether this weekend has the potential to provide a few upsets, after some of the top sides return from their European trips. Both ends of the Premier League table are tight and football spread betting punters will be watching with interest to see how the weekend develops before claiming any football spread betting offers. One thing that should be clearer by Sunday evening is who will be leading the fight for the fourth Champions League spot, as Manchester City will have taken on Liverpool. Saturday’s early kick-off will see Manchester’s other side travel to Goodison Park to face a rejuvenated Everton side. Make sure you take a look at all of the free bets up for grabs before claiming a Football spread betting offer!

Over at Sporting Index, their Premier League championship index (60pts to the winner, 40pts to runner-up, 30pts to third-place, and 20pts for fourth etc) has City as slight favourites in the race for fourth, at 13-14.5pts. Liverpool are currently priced at 12-13.5pts, but a win for the Reds on Sunday will likely see a shift in the spreads. Those looking to buy City’s win index against Liverpool can take plenty of confidence that they are yet to lose at home this campaign, winning nine of their twelve matches. Further encouragement for punters using their free football bets at Sporting Index will be that City have won their previous six home league matches, while only conceding five goals. However, spread bettors considering selling City’s supremacy spread will have taken note that the team have not beaten Rafa Benitez’s side in the league since 2005. During that period, City have picked up four draws and suffered five defeats, although they are undefeated in their last two matches against the Reds.

Total goal football bet buyers will be aware that this fixture has produced a mixed bag in recent seasons finishing 3-2 to the Reds on the last meeting. However, sellers will have noted that the six matches between the 2005/06 and 2007/08 seasons only produced four goals. The sides met in November this season, a 2-2 which had goal minute buyers particularly pleased. That game accumulated 272 minutes, whilst the 3-2 at City the season before accumulated a total of 278.

Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off sees Manchester United and Everton fight it out for three points. Spread buyers of United’s supremacy spread will be banking on another performance similar to the one at Old Trafford in November – a game the Red Devils won 3-0. Sellers will quickly point out that the Toffees held United to a 1-1 draw the year before though. Sir Alex’s team are unbeaten in their last six league games, while they have lost just one of their last six away games.

There hasn’t been a red card in this football fixture during the last nine meetings in the league and the previous five matches accumulated 40, 0, 60, 60 and 40 on the bookings index spreads. Football spread betting fans will be most keen for a repeat of the meeting in 2005 which saw two red cards and a total make-up of 100 points.
