Paddy Power has bets galore for the opening weekend of the Scotland and Englands big league kick off.  For the SPL season kick off Paddy Power has all the outright betting as well as a head-to-head between Celtic and Rangers over a number of markets.  In England there is betting on which team will score the fastest goal of the weekend, which nationality will score the first goal of the season and how many goals the new look teams serve up for us on their return from their summer holidays.

For the EPL curtain-raiser between Spurs and Man City Paddy Power bet whether the first game of the season proves to be a decider in the race for a top four spot. – as well as who will finish highest this season and if Nigel De Jong will be punished for any kung-fu style kick on the opposition.

The bookie is also betting on Peter Crouch’s scoring form with betting on whether the tall striker scores more often at home or when he is playing away…

The Liverpool v Arsenal match see’s odds of a repeat of the famous 4-4 scoreline and whether Steven Gerrard is right that Joe Cole really is better than Lionel Messi.

Also of interest to us there is also a market on Craig Bellamy’s club on September 1st

PREDICTIONS

 

We visit Inverness first up, and hopefully we’ll perform better there than in past seasons.  Not that I hold a grudge, but ever since the whole supercaleygoballistic.. nonsense I’ve wanted to give them a good doin’.  Up there however we’ve only ever scored more than 2 goals on one occasion and that was 6 years ago!  Come on Celtic, we want 4!

 

 

Match Score Odds
Inverness CT v Celtic 0 – 3   9/1
Aberdeen v Hamilton 1 – 1   5/1
Hearts v St Johnstone 2 – 0   8/1
Rangers v Kilmarnock 3 – 0   6/1
St Mirren v Dundee Utd 0 – 0   7/1
Motherwell v Hibernian 2 – 1   9/1

 

So let’s hope we can do better than a 118% return on our investment this season, so that podcast no.150 at Bombay Blues can be a grand affair with Paddy Power paying.
