Just one week and the most over-rated and most bet-on League in the world returns with the English Premier League kicking-off next Saturday, but first we have the annual curtain-raiser this Sunday with the Community Shield along with the lower domestic English leagues, Scottish and Irish Leagues all kicking off this weekend.
We will have two-page soccer special next week along with a glossy Sean Graham betting leaflet and free matched £5 winrush bets for all our readers.
It’s true to say that our Goalrush bets saved us last year and massive improvement is needed for the season ahead. We will try a winrush quad bet each week as we try and make the bookies suffer in the season ahead and start this week with the long suffering PG Quad.
Shock league winners Leicester City take on the FA Cup winners Man Utd (10/11) at Wembley and Jose Mourinho should pick up his first piece of silverware for the Reds.
We expect Zlatan Ibrahimovic to make an explosive competitive debut for José Mourinho’s new-look team that has just added Paul Pogba for a mind-boggling fee.
Swedish striker Ibrahimovic to open the scoring for us and a 3-1 Man Utd scoreline looks a decent bet at around 45/1 - bet singles and the scorecast.
So we need to find three other teams to complete the first weekend quad of the new season and we head to Craven Cottage for the live Friday night game. Hot Championship favourites Newcastle (11/10) take on Fulham and we expect Rafa Benetiz’s team to hit the ground running with a win.
On to Saturday and Bristol City (11/8) can make home advantage count against new boys Wigan while Ipswich (11/10) can also see off Championship new boys Barnsley and hopefully gave us that Sunday sweat on Man Utd.
PG XXX TRIXIE
On to the draw trixie at the weekend and we suggest sitting on the fence in the following games: Huddersfield v Brentford, Rotherham v Wolves and finishing with the Sheffield Wednesday v Aston Villa game on Sunday afternoon. Remember the trixie bet, double usually pays 12/1 which is better than no pick-up at all.
On to the weekend odds-on acca bet and remember Sean Graham enhance certain PG bets every week so keep an eye out in all shops and online via our Facebook/Twitter feeds this weekend.
We start in League One and wins for Bradford (8/11) v Port Vale, Millwall (4/6) v Oldham with Portsmouth (4/6) catching the eye at home to Carlisle in League 2.
We head to the lower leagues in Scotland to make the weekend Acca up. Alloa (19/20) can hit the ground running against Peterhead while Clyde (4/7) complete the odds-on bet at home to Arbroath.
PG WINRUSH QUAD
We are giving away free matched £5 bets in the coming weeks so we will put four teams up and pray for a miracle at the weekend.
We are taking Celtic (5/2) to beat Hearts, Aberdeen (3/1) to beat St Johnstone, Man Utd (11/4) to beat Leicester and Derby (7/2) to get the ball on rolling on Saturday - if that wins the season is paid for and just in case I will be playing trebles and quads this week - free matched Sean Graham £5 bet starts next week.
On to our lifesaver of last season and we’re hoping we can get off to a dreamy start this weekend and suggest both teams to score in the following games: Birmingham v Cardiff, Derby v Brighton, Rochdale v Peterborough, Southend v Gillingham, Cheltenham v Leyton Orient and finishing with Hartlepool v Colchester game.
We will be online daily on our popular Facebook/Twitter feeds with cracking bet competitions sponsored by Sean Graham.
£5 Free Bets
Great news as the PG has signed Sean Graham bookmakers up for some free £5 matched bets for the opening weekends of the new soccer season (13th + 20th August).
The matched bet will be on all WINRUSH QUAD bets and is worth a dabble with the average quad in these bets paying around 70/1 so you would be doubling those odds to around 140/1.
The free bet vouchers will be printed here next week.
