Chelsea v Manchester UTD - Lampard Raring To Go

Chelsea v Manchester UTD Betting Tips (Premier League dec 18):
Please note: GAME POSTPONED due to weather

Win £1000 this weekend by predicting the first goal time in the big Premier League clash between Chelsea v Man UTD.

TIP 1: Chelsea v Manchester UTD over 2.5 goals @ 5/4 Betfair Chelsea v Manchester UTD is the big Premier League Betting game of the weekend and as usual in football games of this magnitude I think the sportsbooks generally side a little too much with the unders in the betting(my records would back up this theory), leaving value with backing the over 2.5 goals. Lampard will be back and he's huge for Chelsea, not least for his set piece delivery which will benefit Didier Drogba and the big men at the back who have been lacking in goals in Lampard's absence. Manchester UTD are a good tip to play their defensive 451 formation but 5/4 still good betting value for me on the over 2.5 goals.

TIP 2: Frank Lampard anytime scorer @ 11/4 (PP) As mentioned in the title, Lampard is back and expected to start and loves the big matches. He is a weapon at Stamford bridge with his shooting ability and forward runs into the box. It's no surprise to those really in the know to see Chelsea struggling without him. A penalty would hardly be surprising for Chelsea vs Manchester UTD and I think Lampard will resume penalty duties for Chelsea after Drogba's horrendous miss that cost us a 15/2 winner last week. Betting on a penalty to be given could a decent outside betting opportunity depending on the odds close the off.

If Jamie Redknapp is in the studio, Lampard is a good longshot value betting tip for Man of the match @ 7/1 (B/sq). Redknapp's bias is not hidden and a half decent performance in a Chelsea win would make him a very hard man to beat for that accolade.

Golf Player Profiles



Please note that player attribute ratings are derived from the official PGA Tour and European Tour golf stats, and updated with a rolling average each golf betting year for precision.


Bryan Nicholson is the pioneer of the progressive form and course fit ratings for golf betting, with the associated progressive form model and course fit profiling model. Bryan is the author of the increasingly popular annual course fit profiling manual and #1 golf betting book Angles & Edges and runs the Sharp Sports Bettors Blog.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan also pioneered the concept of Expected Strokes Gained Course Fit (xSGF) in golf betting. xSGF can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form... See more with our calculators and betting tools
