Holdin’ Onto English Premier League Soccer Betting

July 23rd, 2019 Football Soccer

The Chelsea Boys delivered on their status as soccer betting favourites by winning the 2016-17 season of the English Premier League, but with one week still to go there remains plenty of gambling to be done, praise be to British god.

Sunderland vs. Arsenal
Date: Tuesday, May 16th
Venue: Emirates Stadium

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on soccer:
Sunderland +2½ (-102) 3½ (-126) +2702
Arsenal -2½ (-113) 3½ (+111) -952
Sunderland/Arsenal Draw +1176

Speaking of holding on to things, the Black Cats will hopefully enjoy their last two games as members of the EPL. After all, at this point it’s not about winning or losing anymore. Sunderland lost their final home game 2-0 to Swansea City on Saturday, the 19th time they have been shut out this season – and they still have a chance to match their league record of 2002-03.

Arsenal can still qualify for the next UEFA Champions League so they will most certainly not be going through the motions. The Gunners beat Stoke City 4-1 on Saturday for their third straight victory – notwithstanding which Le Professeur Arsène Wenger was treated to a plane banner inviting him to leave the club. What, couldn’t scrape together enough for sky writing?

West Bromwich vs. Manchester City soccer betting preview
Date: Wednesday, 17th

Odds for fans who bet on soccer:
West Bromwich +2½ (-128) 3½ (-104) +2099
Manchester City -2½ (+113) 3½ (-111) -634
West Bromwich/Manchester City Draw +803

The Baggies extended their winless streak to seven games and served as stepping stone for Chelsea to claim the league title in a 1-0 loss on Friday. All things considered, though, this season can be considered an improvement for Albion.

The Citizens defeated Leicester 2-1 on Saturday for their second consecutive win, and will be looking to continue their six-game undefeated streak and keep Arsenal out of the Champions League. Gabriel Jesus scored his fifth goal in six starts with the City. The Brazilian also has two assists. That’s right, nobody messes with the Jesus. A win over West Bromwich could assure a top 4 finish for Manchester City, but they would also have to rely on Arsenal and Manchester United stumbling.

Manchester United vs. Southampton soccer betting preview
Date: Wednesday, May 17th
Venue: St Mary’s Stadium

Odds for fans who bet on soccer:
Manchester United PK (-107) 2½ (+116) +177
Southampton PK (-108) 2½ (-131) +177
Manchester United/Southampton Draw +238

The Red Devils lost 1-2 to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, their second loss in a row following a months-long unbeaten streak. MUFC was there physically but mentally their focus is on winning the Europa League championship. As manager José Mourinho put it, “The most important thing for us now is having one less match to play.”

The Saints bested Middlesbrough 2-1 on Saturday to snap a five-game winless streak, as well as three-game scoreless streak. Manager made seven changes to the starting eleven, and while the perfunctory nature of the match lent itself to experimenting, maybe he should have gotten to work earlier.
