English Premier League Betting Tips

One of the most popular bets to make on the Premier League is futures bets in regards to the eventual champions. Chelsea are the reigning champions having finished with 93 points, seven more than Tottenham Hotspur, after losing only five of their 38 league games and going on a 13-match winning streak. Expect Chelsea to be one of the preseason favorites to win the 2017-18 Premier League title, although the Blues have to contend with playing in the UEFA Champions League this season which could hinder their title chances.

Manchester City finished third in 2016-17 and were 15 points off the pace. Head coach Pep Guardiola knows that anything other than the Premier League title and a deep run in the Champions League will likely see him lose his job. Guardiola is fortunate that City’s owners are prepared to back him in the transfer market and he is likely to spend upwards of £200 million bolstering his squad; expect City to be bookmakers’ early favorites for glory.

At the other end of the table, futures betting on who will be relegated from the Premier League is also popular with soccer bettors. Newly promoted Huddersfield Town are odds-on to return to the Championship, while the likes of Brighton and Hove Albion, Burnley, Watford and Swansea City all look like they could struggle to survive “the drop.”

When it comes to betting on individual matches, you will often find that the home teams and those sides occupying the top six league places are short-priced favorites. For example, if Arsenal are playing Brighton, do not be surprised to see the odds of an Arsenal win be as short as -500. Obviously, making money from these betting lines is difficult so it may be worth checking the fixture list to see if the “Big Six” are facing weak opposition and putting them in a parlay bet. These bets are riskier but can yield huge results if all of your picks come in.

Lastly, betting on the goals scored market is extremely popular with people looking to bet on Premier League matches. During the 2016-17 season, 1,064 goals were scored for an average of 2.8 per match, which means betting on the over 2.5 goals market can often be profitable.

At the other end of the pitch, both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur kept 17 clean sheets last season while Chelsea recorded 16 shutouts; look to bet on these teams to win to nil when they are facing lesser opposition.
