It's time to get your weekend sporting bets on, and what better sportsbook to
use than Ladbrokes, one of the UK's most trusted and reputable sports betting
operations, which is offering a slew of current and competitive betting lines on
all manner of sports and events.
Read on for our Weekend Sports Preview for 21 September 2012.
New Zealand vs Bangladesh ODI Cricket
Today (Friday, September 21) sees the T20 World Cup 2012 Group D match between
New Zealand and Bangladesh. Group D has proven to be a very tough group which
means no team can afford to mess up at this point. As such, we expect this to be
a long and hard match that should offer up many nail-biting moments.
From a betting perspective, Ladbrokes has posted New Zealand as the overwhelming
favourites. But can the plucky team from Bangladesh fight back? That is indeed
the big cricket betting question, and for our cricket betting buck, the answer
Here are the latest New Zealand vs Bangladesh betting lines:

Barclays Premier League Matches
This weekend football fans have a smorgasbord of matches to look forward to in a
number of leagues, from many nations in Europe. But no doubt most will switch
their tellies over to the Barclays Premier League to watch the UK's top teams in
After just four games in the new season, Chelsea are leading the way with 10
points, followed by Manchester United on 9 points and Arsenal and Man City tied
on 8 points. Southampton are at the very bottom of the standings having lost all
four of their games so far. Will they be able to pull up their socks and avoid
relegation is a question many of their fans will be asking.
For our football betting buck, the games to watch out for most tomorrow
(Saturday, September 22) are Chelsea vs Stoke City and Wigan vs Fulham. The
Chelsea game to see if the Blues - as the overwhelming betting favorites - can
win their fourth game of season, and the Wigan match to see if the team's
striker Mauro Boselli - who has been largely ineffectual in his time with the
club - will finally play up to the expectation of club boss, Roberto Martinez.
(We think not.)
On Sunday there are two great Premier League matchups you can't afford to miss -
Liverpool vs Manchester Utd and Manchester City vs Arsenal.
The fact that the Reds have yet to win their first match this season will draw
many viewers, especially as they face their old rivals, the Red Devils. We
suspect, however, that Liverpool will be crushed 4-0. And then, with just two
points separating them in the standings, the game between the Citizens and the
Gunners should be explosive to say the least. We foresee Manchester City racking
up a 2-1 victory.
Here are the Barclays Premier League match odds for this weekend's games:
Saturday, Sep 22
|Swansea vs Everton
|Chelsea vs Stoke City
|Southampton vs Aston Villa
|West Brom vs Reading
|West Ham vs Sunderland
|Wigan vs Fulham
Sunday, September 23
|Liverpool vs Manchester Utd
|Newcastle vs Norwich
|Manchester City vs Arsenal
|Tottenham vs QPR
2012 Tour Championship Golf Tournament
Many golf betting fans are rooting for current leader Tiger Woods to win the
2012 Tour Championship, which kicked off on Thursday this week at East Lake Golf
Club in Atlanta.
Interestingly, the American - who once dominated the sport of
golf with a ferocity that perfectly matched his name - has been accused by some
of this peers of being 'intimidated' by Northerm Irish upstart Rory McIlroy, who
has had nothing less than sterling year so far.
Whether true or not, Tiger will definitely be looking to quash those kind of
notions by beating McIlroy to snag the Tour Championship victory, and hopefully
put himself back on a winning course. But with three days still to go, only time
will tell. Here is the latest Tour Championship 2012 betting line at Ladbrokes.
