Both Sunderland and Swansea City are looking for their first win of the campaign but bwin’s 3way football betting market suggests the Black Cats may have the upper hand with odds of 2/1 for an away victory.
Brendan Rodgers’ men are at 27/20 to triumph, while odds on a draw are 11/5 if the two teams end up being so useless they cancel each other out.
After spending somewhere in the region of £23 million on regenerating his squad in the summer, Steve Bruce’s chequebook must be wrinkled, torn and tucked away in a drawer somewhere, not expecting to be needed again for a very long time … if chequebooks think about that sort of thing.
His new-look side have only managed one goal between them in three games
this season. But Swansea have been even worse at this fairly simple-sounding activity, having failed to notch in their first two Premier League games and only managing to score once in their shock defeat in the Carling Cup against Shrewsbury.
With this in mind, bwin offers odds of 25/4 on the game ending in a 0-0 bore draw.
But perhaps this could be the game that sees one of these sides spark into life. The Swans have been praised for their fluid attacking style and certainly pose a potent threat with former Chelsea player Scott Sinclair and summer signing Danny Graham in the side.
Together they amassed an impressive 45 goals last season in the Championship and both are 8/5 with bwin to get off the mark against Sunderland.
However, Bruce’s men are hideously inconsistent and could therefore be due a win. Towards the end of last season they won and then lost in six consecutive games, but have so far managed only a draw and a defeat this time around.
A 2-0 win for the visitors is on offer to football betting fans at odds of 19/2 with bwin and using your free £25 bet for registering on this scoreline could reap rewards of £262.50.
If Sunderland’s new recruits continue to misfire, however, Bruce may have to iron out that chequebook before the transfer window closes.
