Betting Spy: Back Aguero to bang them in

In a strange quirk of alphabetical fate it’s top versus bottom in the first round of Premier League games as Arsenal take on West Ham this weekend.

Now 9/1 on the Irons is a big price.

But I can’t start the season letting heart rule the head however exciting it is not to have Sam Allardyce in charge.

The Gunners are being touted as potential league winners but let’s leave this one alone and look for value elsewhere.

Stoke look a decent shout to see-off a Liverpool side who are always over-rated by the bookies.

The Reds are favourites despite suffering a 6-1 drubbing at the Britannia Stadium back in May.

Brendan Rogers will be desperate for revenge.

But since then Liverpool have lost Raheem Sterling and brought in a host of new faces who may take a while to adjust to Premier League life.

Stoke have a settled look about them and seem over-priced at 5/2 to maintain their decent home record.

Paddy Power have a raft of offers for the upcoming season and one of the more eye-catching ones is in the top scorer market.

If you place £20 or more on a player to win the Golden Boot then every time they score you’ll get a free £2 bet.

That looks a great deal with Sergio Aguero heading the betting at 3/1.

Aguero rattled in 26 league goals to top the charts last season – and looks all set to be there or thereabouts again this year.

A similar performance would see the City hit man net you £52 in free bets while he battles for the Golden Boot.

City may not win the title – but Aguero is sure to light up the league again and the free bet offer makes him a cracking punt.
