Sunderland v Chelsea- both teams enjoyed a good start to the season with opening day wins. Chelsea were hammering on the door of Hull throughout the second half and Sunderland scored courtesy of a new boy Darren Bent, just as we tipped.
Premiership Betting tip-Drogba is looking sharp and most of all interested, so we’ll be tipping him to score in a second game running, Betfair have him at odds of 2.64 to score at anytime, take it!!
Bolton v Sunderland- Sunderland have strengthened their squad and with the arrival of new manager Steve Bruce, the will be hoping to look up the table rather than below them. Out of the 140 games between the two teams, Sunderland have won 58 and Bolton 49.
Premiership Betting tip-We won’t be betting on who will win this encounter, although if we had to, Sunderland to win at odds of 12/5 seem to be tempting. Instead back new boy Darren Bent to score at anytime, you can get odds of 2/1 on Betfair. He’ll be looking to impress and get off to a flying start after his time at Spurs.
At the front of every newspaper at the beginning of this week was the name ‘Lehman’, unfortunately it was the sad news of the many job losses at the Global Investment Bank and nothing to do with crazy ex-Arsenal goal keeper Jens Lehman(n).
With a major recession looming , it’s re-assuring to know that the Premiership clubs like Manchester United have taken heed and have only splashed out £30 million pounds on one player. Now that’s what PremiershipBettingBanter.com calls a sensible approach to this unstable economic climate!!!
Sunderland v Middlesbrough- Middlesbrough will be missing a vital player in Tuncay through injury, this will be a big loss as he’s been one of the reasons why ‘Boro have made a good start to the season. Roy Keane looks to have pretty much a full squad of players to pick from. Last years’ fixture produced a scoreline of 3-2 to Sunderland.
Premiership Betting tip- Both home and away fixtures produced 9 goals in total, let’s bet against the odds and back the over 2.5 goals, odds of 2.12 goals can be found on Betfair.
UPDATE: Another losing bet, if only Downing had scored that penalty then I’m sure that would of set this match up for over 2.5 goals. One more and we would of made some nice profit at odd of 2.12. Don’t worry, keep the faith, I have a feeling a good run is on it’s way, lets hope it comes quicker then a Tottenham win!!

There’s alot of speculation that Roy Keane will allow striker Anthony Stokes to go out on loan. There’s no doubt that ex-United captain Keane is able to give words of wisdom that will inspire any player, but the following quote looks to be a back handed compliment to Stokes:
…….Keane said on Sunday: “Anthony would benefit from going out and getting 20 games. He’s good enough to go and play in the Championship.”‘
