Premier League Statistical Analysis
There are plenty of goals scored in the English Premier League. Last season saw an average of 2.69 goals per game, a slight fall from 2.72 in the previous season. It's a lower average than seen last season in other major leagues such as Serie A (3.06), German Bundesliga (3.03), Ligue 1 (2.76) and Dutch Eredvisie (3.01) but higher than La Liga (2.51) and Portugal's NOS (2.42) and much higher than in the English Championship (2.31). Teams down the bottom of the table last season didn't score too many goals so that bought the average down.
The under/over goals market is one that is always good to have a bet on. Last season 50% of English Premier League matches saw over 2.5 goals scored in them. Both Leicester City and West Ham United had over 2.5 goals in 24 of their 38 league games. 27% of matches had over 3.5 goals scored in them with 17 out of 38 Manchester United games seeing that stat come up.

The Both teams to score market is also a very popular bet. 49% of English Premier League games played last season saw both teams get on the scoresheet. Manchester United topped the charts in this category with 24 of their matches seeing both teams score. They were just ahead of West Ham and Leicester on 22. Only 17 Manchester City games had both teams get on the scoresheet as their defence ensured that stat didn't happen so often. Of teams playing in the 2021/22 season, Burnley are the ones to avoid, last season only 14 of their matches saw both teams score a goal.
We've already mentioned the both teams to score stat. What was the most common score in the 2020/21 Premier League? It was 1-1 and that came up in 11% of games played.

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 be necessary to consider if the form of both teams, and of the key players on each side. Make sure you keep a close eye on the stats to see which teams are playing well. If they are getting lots of wins, look to see who they have been beating to get those successes. A string of wins over sides in the bottom half of the table might not help when playing Liverpool or Manchester City.
Look at which teams are playing well at home. Often sides aren't that high in the table but may well be getting good results on home soil. Manchester City earned 45 away points last season but only 41 at home. Liverpool had that appalling spell when they lost six consecutive home league games, though form did improve later on in the season. Leicester City just missed out on a top four finish and can blame their home form. City won 38 points on their travels but just 28 at home. Arsenal won two more away games than at the Emirates, while Southampton earned 11 more points at home than on their travels. Everton would have finished a lot higher but for their home form. At Goodison Park, they won 22 points but earned 37 on the road.

How to predict the Premier League table
The Premier League isn't all about who is going to lift the title. It has to be said that there are few teams who are capable of becoming champions. Liverpool and Manchester City had been clear of the rest of the teams for the past two seasons. Last season saw Liverpool slip from that level with poor home form costing them dearly. Losing Virgil van Dijk cost them dearly. Manchester United finished second but 11 draws and a poor start to the season hindered their title hopes. Chelsea are expected to make a strong challenge this season, it'll be interesting to see what they do in the transfer market.
There are so many more bets that you can place on the Premier League. You can place wagers on which teams will finish in the top four. That again looks like being a close battle (bar the top two) and there are some good odds to be had on teams like Leicester and Tottenham finishing in the top four.

Norwich keep on getting relegated and then promoted, they face a tough battle to stay in the Premier League. You can also have match bets, whether teams will finish in the top ten and also regional bets - top team in the south etc. There's plenty to bet on in this exciting league.
