Victor Chandler, the off-shore bookmaking firm, announced this week it will accept single bets on Premiership games this season. It is only a matter of time before their mainland counterparts follow suit. You can effectively have a single bet anyway by placing three half-time/full-time combinations (winning, losing or drawing at half-time, doubled with your full-time prediction). In the meantime, The Price Is Right is happy to keep betting in trebles.
Newcastle and Aston Villa can fight out a draw at St James' Park while Premiership new boys Watford can hold Wimbledon at home. West Ham and Tottenham may gain a point apiece in their London derby, while tomorrow, after their tame display in the Charity Shield, Manchester United, the champions, may gain no more than a point against Everton, perennial strugglers, at Goodison Park.Reuse content
