With the annual summer hibernation across Europe’s most reputable leagues but a few weeks away, the opportunities to cash in on the most eye-catching of bwin.com’s enhanced multiple offers are wearing thin.
Determined to go into the off-season as flush as possible, the news.bwin.com tipping taskforce have sounded out a pretty hefty treble that’s been boosted to 11/1.
The Combi+ (a name with a special place in the heart of all punters who love good value wagers) in question features wins for Premier League champions Chelsea, recently-deposed Manchester City and Scottish silver medalists Aberdeen in their respective fixtures against Liverpool, QPR and Celtic.
Victory for two of the encompassed outfits, one would imagine, will be difficult to attain, but there are ample factors suggesting the full compliment will do the business, the bulk of which we’ll share with you below.
Chelsea to beat Liverpool @ 21/20
The fact that the Blues, who boast 14 wins and three draws from 17 Premier League showdowns at Stamford Bridge, are odds against to beat a team that picked up a total of one point from previous trips to West Brom and Hull is, frankly, obscene.
Boss Jose Mourinho has endured one top-tier loss against this adversary across his two stints in charge of the west London club, winning all of the previous three since returning from Real Madrid.
Liverpool’s road ledger makes for terrible reading too, with two 1-0 wins over Swansea and Blackburn their only triumphs across seven sojourns.
Man City to beat QPR @ 11/50
Anything but a win for the Super Hoops will see them follow Burnley through the relegation trap door so they could be forgiven for wishing for an easier game here.
While City have been sketchy on the road, imperiousness has been routine at home, winning five top-flight fixtures in succession, conceding just two and scoring 15, ahead of this one.
The R’s have played 13 games against teams residing in the division’s top third; a solitary draw is all they have to show from what is a dreadful baker’s dozen.
Aberdeen to beat Celtic @ 31/10
It’s a statement that applies to almost every team north of the border, but Aberdeen have a terrible record against the Bhoys.
They’ve lost 14 of their last 16 Scottish Premiership encounters against the green half of the Old Firm, winning just once across this lean patch.
However, their solo success came in what was the duo’s final Pittodrie meeting last season, with the Dons running out 2-1 winners.
With eight wins and two draws and eight clean sheets from ten backyard battles ahead of Celtic’s arrival this time, they’re well poised to augment their woeful record against Ronny Deila’s men, who, having wrapped up the championship, have nothing to play for.
