We are a fourth of the way through the Premier League season and some things have gone according to form in Internet betting while others have not.
Let’s look at the top of the Premier League and teams to consider in online betting at the Sbg sportsbook and also take a look at the battle in the relegation zone.
Through nine matches it is Chelsea that has a five point lead in the Premier League. The Blues look good but it should be noted they have had a very easy schedule. Only three of their first nine games could be considered tough and in those games they picked up just four points. Let’s see where Chelsea is after Christmas as they play Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal.
Arsenal, City and United
It is a three way tie for second place in the Premier League after nine games. Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United are all five points back. Arsenal got a huge win at Manchester City on Sunday but City played with just 10 men for almost all that match. City is still the only team that has beaten Chelsea this season so they have hope and United is still in the picture, even though they have gotten nothing so far out of Wayne Rooney. If United can get their defense fixed and if Rooney gets going, they could make a run at Chelsea.
The battle at the bottom is almost as exciting as the battle at the top of the Premier League. Liverpool has been terrible and not many people saw them being in relegation battle. What makes this battle even more interesting in Internet betting is that on three points separate Sunderland in seventh from Liverpool in 18th place. Not many people gave Blackpool any chance to stay alive this season but they have started strong. West Brom should eventually fall back but so far so good. West Ham is a rotten defensive team and they are going to be near the bottom all year. Wolverhampton is also a poor team and they are going to be at the bottom. Not out of the woods are Wigan, Blackburn and even Fulham. If Liverpool gets it together as expected, then someone is going to join West Ham and Wolverhampton in the relegation zone.
