Premier League betting took a wicked twist as Chelsea climbed to first place after overcoming Middlesbrough in the narrowest of wins. Conte’s men are now a point ahead of Liverpool and Manchester City and the fact that only three points separate the first four teams of the table is proof that betting on the Premier League is never short of entertainment. Arsenal’s back to back draws is what sunk them to fourth place, and the lost points would have been enough to be first in the Premier League. Liverpool took control of the game against Southampton but their best efforts were in vain as the Saints resisted the pressure and the game finished in a goalless draw. The Premier League can be unpredictable at times, which is why you should be looking at important betting information when placing a bet on the Premier League for the weekend.
Bet on Chelsea vs Tottenham
It’s another London derby and what an important one it is for both teams. Chelsea have just climbed to first place and will want to win this game to stay at the top of the table while Tottenham need all three points to avoid slipping further down the table. They’re now fifth and four points away from the top. Chelsea are the clear favourites to win the game with odds priced at 3/4. Since the Premier League started in August, Chelsea played six matches at home and won five of them, losing only to Liverpool. Conte’s men are now the second highest scoring team with 27 goals, on par with Manchester City and with this information, betting on goals would make a great option if you don’t fancy betting on an outright winner. Odds for over 2.5 goals stand at 41/50.
Tottenham are the least conceding team of the Premier League with eight goals and Chelsea are a close second with nine goals conceded, which is why betting on both teams to score might be trickier that other games. Odds for Tottenham to win the game are currently at 4/1 but betting on double chance on Tottenham could also be a great option as it’s priced at 28/25, especially since Spurs are the only unbeaten team of the Premier League this season.
Bet on Arsenal
The first five teams of the Premier League are unbeaten in their last five games, including Arsenal who picked up just two measly points from their last two games. They now face Bournemouth and will need nothing less than a win to avoid sinking further down the table and keep their Champions League spot hopes alive. The gunners are the clear favourites to win the game with odds priced at 4/11, but from their 6 games played at home, they won three, drew two and lost to Liverpool in their opening match. If you’re looking to back Arsenal but think the odds won’t yield the profit desired, try handicap betting, where odds for Arsenal to win the game with a goal difference of two stand at evens. Chelsea, the current leaders, have two tough games ahead of them which is why Arsenal need to be sure to collect maximum points to maintain the pressure on Conte’s men.
Bet on Manchester City
Yaya Toure saved the day for Manchester City as he got the winning goal against Crystal Palace seven minutes from time. They now face Burnley away from home and as expected, City are the clear favourites with odds at 3/10. Crystal Palace are struggling to find their form and have lost all their five most recent games, which is worrying for their manager Alan Pardew. City have an excellent on the road, winning five games form their six games played. Handicap betting might be a better option, considering Crystal Palace’s form and the number of goals City score. And with odds of 37/20 for City to win the game with a difference of three goals, it makes handicap betting a more profitable option.
