All you need to know about the English football league
Despite being often regarded as the most spectacular football championship in the world, the Premier League is fairly predictable when it comes to choosing a final ranking. The surprise victory of Leicester in 2015/16 is considered as an anomaly. For this reason, it comes as no surprise that the English football league has become, today, the number one championship for punters to place their football bets on.
English Premier League football tips
Always rely on Favorites
The top English names like Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and more recently Tottenham are, every year, the main contenders to victory in the Premier League. With hundreds of millions spent in transfers by the top 6 during each transfer season, it’s becoming harder and harder for other teams to compete, even for Europa League spots.
Gather a max of info
To place a winning bet on the next Premier League, you need to focus on analysing in detail the results of each team in recent years as well as looking at their strengths and weaknesses at the start of each new season. Make sure you take your time to do this analysis, by regularly reading sport news – to remain up to date with teams forms and potential injuries – tip sites, or sport sections of sites like the Guardian or the Telegraph.
Premier League Betting tips
Try to avoid derbies
What the English call “local derby” is a sporting event organised between two clubs from the same city or two neighbouring cities.
There is usually a particularly strong rivalry between the two teams. So betting on this type of encounters can be risky since teams make it a question of honor to win the game. Which makes it difficult to predict the final result. For instance, predicting the result of a game between Arsenal vs Tottenham is much more complicated than just looking at each team’s form before the match.
Consider placing “Under 2.5 goals” bets
The English football league was once rich in goals. However in the last few seasons, the average number of goals per games has dropped to about 2.50, which is much more in line with other championships. The Premier League remains spectacular, but in general, defenses have largely improved. So there’s now great value in placing under 2.5 goals bets – the return on this type of winning bet can be fantastic.
Bet on away victories
Statistics show that the English football league has one of the highest away victories rate of the top european championships. Over the past few seasons the away win rate has been around 30% against 20 to 25% in other countries. So betting on away victories in the Premier League can often be more interesting than betting on draws.
Betshaman recommends you place this type of bet on games where both teams have a similar level (two mid-table teams for instance). These bets win fairly frequently and the odds can be really interesting.
How to place a winning bet
With football betting being the largest sector in the gambling industry, placing a bet is now much more than just choosing the champion. There are many other betting options available to you to bet on the Premier League. From game winners to correct scores, amount of corners or even amount of cards, you can choose the type of bet that suits you most.
