Premier League Presentation - Football
According to UEFA the Premier League ranks in second amongst the best European football championships, and this top-tier English football division is amongst the best in the world according to football experts. Twenty of the best football teams in England go head-to-head over the course of a season, with each team playing each other twice (home and away). At the end of 34 matchdays, the top four teams in the league standings qualify for the Champions League, while the fifth and sixth place teams join the winners of the FA Cup in the Europa League. The three teams that finish at the bottom of the table are relegated to the English Football Championship.
The Premier League is without doubt a fan-favourite, and provides entertainment to followers of football from around globe year after year. The various stadiums around the country are filled every weekend, with fans turning out in their thousands to see star players like Kevin de Bruyne, Harry Kane and Virgil van Dijk, as well as world class coaches such as Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp. Between Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City, these are the clubs that football fans from around the world dream of.
Premier League experts predictions
We have said that the Premier League is one of the best football championships in the world, and the stats are there to back up this claim. With an average of 2.80 goals scored per game last season (and 2.60 in 2017/18), the PL is one of the most prolific football leagues. When making predictions on the Premier League, know that the competition will be full of spectacles and emotion provided by the heavyweights, which is why the league is so loved around the world.
Last year, for example, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City were explosive, racking up 95 goals over the course of the season (they scored 105 in the 2018/19 season) which averaged out at 2.5 goals per game. Liverpool were not far behind, with 89 shots finding the back of the net (2.34 per game). Huge numbers, which could be repeated next season according to our football experts. If you want to make a reliable prediction on the Premier League, you could do worse then betting on high scoring games when the favourites are involved.
Another interesting statistic to note for your bets is that the ‘+2.5 goals’ market saw success in 53.6% of games last season. When we know that the odds quoted by bookmakers on such bets usually fall at around 2/1, we would say that the same strategy will likely yield rewards for the 2019/20 season. The same goes for the bet ‘Both teams to score’ - whether during the Boxing Day fixtures of on the last day of the season, over half of last season’s matches saw both teams involved get on the scoreboard. This trend has continued over the last three seasons, and will be interesting to consider for your bets in 2019/20 as the odds offered by online bookmakers are generally high.
In the same vein, know that the ‘exact score’ market can also result in considerable gains when it comes to Premier League predictions. Last season over one in ten matches resulted in a 2-0 scoreline (11.58%), an increase from previous seasons - 7.11% in 2017/18 and 8.68% in 2016/17. If you want to predict the exact score of a Premier League fixture then you know what to do - with an average odds value of 5/1 on offer it would be a shame to miss out during the upcoming season.
How to predict Premier League matches
Now that we are aware of the most interesting statistics of the first-tier English football league, let us provide you with a few simple rules and tips to follow for betting success. The first point that will always be necessary to consider if the form of both teams, and of the key players on each side. To demonstrate this with an example of a game between Leicester and Burnley: if Jamie Vardy has been on fire in recent weeks, and has scored three goals in his last two games, then the Foxes should be favoured in your predictions. On the other hand, if the England international has suffered a poor run of form, then a bet on a ‘Draw’ or ‘Burnley to Win’ might be preferable for your kitty. The same logic applies to every team in the Premier League.
Judging the real stake of a match will also be crucial for your Premier League bets. For example, you would not approach a prediction on the scoreline of a game in the same way over the Christmas period as you would towards the end of the season. The stakes of a meeting can often determine the outcome of the match, and the tension surrounding a meeting can be particularly felt by those involved when a game is essential for the future of their club. Before betting on the Premier League, be sure to check the season table, to find out where each team stands going into their next game - it can help you to determine their motivation for any upcoming fixtures.
The final piece of advice that we can give you at this point is to always compare odds on the Premier League before placing your bets. Whether you want to bet on Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal or Manchester City, you will have to opportunity to pick and choose between the various bookmakers on the market. All you have to do is register with all of the best new betting sites to find the best odds offered on the bet of your choice. Fancy your chances on a Manchester United win against Tottenham? In that case, it would be of much more interest to you to place your bet on the odds of 6/5 offered by William Hill than the 2/1 on offer at 888sport. In the long run, hundreds of euros are at stake, so do not forget this step -why not check out bookmakers sign up offers for your bets!

Again, the odds on offer are usually quite high, so a bet on this market can prove to be very worthwhile if you know how to predict it.
There are a few simple rules that will be key to your bets on this market, with motivation again being one of them - for example, will a club be happy with a mid-table finish? Promoted teams may be content to maintain their Premier League status, or they may have the ambition to finish in the top half of the table. Is European football crucial to a top-tier club? You should also analyse the fixture calendar for the upcoming season, as well as a clubs activity in the summer transfer market. Finally, as the English football season is long and gruelling, the depth of a squad can be key to their performance in the standings - will they have the quality amongst their substitutes to allow them to perform in the long? All of these factors, and more, will be key to your outright bets on the Premier League table.
