August 2019 - Latest Sports Betting News
After a couple of quieter months, August sees the return of the Premier League, Football League and also many of the leagues around Europe kicking off their new seasons. There's also the beginning of The Ashes cricket test series and Glorious Goodwood!
FA Community Shield - Man City vs Liverpool
The season starts with the traditional opening showcase at Wembley, with last season's Premier League and domestic treble winners Man City taking on Champions League winners Liverpool in what should be a fantastic game. We'll have a preview of the game nearer the time, but for now the outright odds are as follows:
Man City 10/11 (Bet365)
Draw 11/4 (Bet365)
Liverpool 3/1 (Betfred)Please note all odds are correct at time of article publishing.
City are the favourites for the game, but in such a one-off tie we feel that 3/1
is actually really good value for Liverpool to win. Man City have had the better pre-season building up to this game, but Liverpool will be trying very hard to win this so look the value bet on the day.
Premier League 2019/20 Season
The Premier League returns on Friday 9th August with the opening match of Liverpool vs Norwich City. Then the rest of the ties take place across the weekend of 10th and 11th August.
This season promises to be just as exciting as last year, with new signings to see and what promises to be a great title battle again between Man City and Liverpool. Could Tottenham also come into the reckoning this year? And how will Chelsea fare under new boss Frank Lampard, or Man united under Solskjaer? It's a really intriguing season and the title odds are as follows:
Man City 8/15 (Betfred)
Liverpool 11/4 (Paddy Power)
Tottenham 20/1 (Paddy Power)
Chelsea 33/1 (Bet365)
Please note all odds are correct at time of article publishing.
Man Utd 40/1 (Bet365)
Arsenal 66/1 (Bet365)
Man City are the odds-on favourite for the title at 8/15, which isn't very tempting really before a ball has even been kicked! Tottenham could be good value for a tip at the title at 20/1, but last year's runners-up Liverpool also look tempting at 11/4 if they can maintain their form from last season.
We'll have a full preview on site soon for the new Premier League season, so stay tuned for what looks like another epic season of action.
UEFA Super Cup - Liverpool vs Chelsea

Liverpool 4/5 (Coral)
Draw 13/5 (Bet365)
Chelsea 15/4 (Bet365)Please note all odds are correct at time of article publishing.
Liverpool are the 4/5 favourites to win the match and will surely have a very good chance of adding this quite prestugious trophy to their cabinet.
