Betting on the Premier League got all the more interesting as Manchester City went through their first set-back of their campaign and narrowed the gap between first and second place. Tottenham proved to all Premier League betting fans that Manchester City can be stopped, and what a show they put on! Their city rivals Manchester United were held at home against a very determined Stoke, who welcomed a point and defied the odds. Arsenal’s late winner destroyed Burnley, a team who showed great spirit in front of their 20,000 supporters. Chelsea overcame Hull to come out of their back to back losses, a game in which they controlled. We’ll take a closer look at the information needed to discover all the different ways available to bet on the Premier League.
Bet on Liverpool vs Manchester United
This is a big one! The clash of the week and a rivalry that has been present since the early days of the Premier League. Liverpool are the favourites to win with a great price to beat the red devils at 21/20. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last five championship games, winning the last four and climbing into fourth place of the table, just two points shy of first place Manchester City. Four out of their last five games finished in over 2.5 goals and scoring 14 goals. Their ability to pounce and take advantage of opportunities is what’s making the Merseyside in red headlining sports news and boosting confidence in their manager Jurgen Klopp.
Odds for the game to finish in over 2.5 goals are currently at 39/50. Manchester United on the other hand are not too consistent this season and their last five games consisted of two wins, two losses and a draw. Not what the ‘special one’ had in mind in his first season in charge of the red devils. Odds for both teams to score are at 5/8 and a great price if no teams or only one team scores, which is at 11/9.
Bet on Chelsea vs Leicester City
Chelsea are in the same boat as Manchester United with regards to their last five games played. They lose two, won two and drew the other. They face the champions of England, who are struggling to keep up their form from the previous season. Antonio Conte’s men are the clear favourites to beat the foxes, with odds currently at 5/9. Scoring eight goals in their last five games and conceding seven makes Chelsea somewhat of a mixed bag and betting on both teams to score might be an interesting one, with a price of 3/4. Leicester City will be looking for redemption as they were sunk by two goals in extra time in the League Cup a couple of weeks ago. The game ended in over 2.5 and over 3.5 goals and odds for the game to finish in the same manner are at 17/24 and 9/5 respectively. Jamie Vardy is nowhere close to last season’s scoring form and only managed to find the net twice this season. Can the former Fleetwood Town striker find his form once again?
Bet on Arsenal vs Swansea
Arsenal lost their first game of the season against Liverpool in a seven goal thriller but immediately sought to make amends, which worked miracles as they didn’t lose another game since. They drew against the Champions Leicester City and went on to win their last five games of the season. Arsenal found the net 13 times in their last five games and four of those ended in over 2.5 goals. A bet on over 2.5 goals would potentially return £15.10 from a tenner. Arsenal’s play relies heavily on possession play and dominating the game in midfield, a problem Bob Bradley is very aware and concerned about. Swansea are against tough opponents to try come out of their losing slump and another defeat would see them sinking into the relegation zone.
