England’s premier league competition, the Premier League is already living up to its reputation as one of the most entertaining leagues in Europe this season. As expected, the gladiators in England are

After an enthralling 2018/2019 campaign, Manchester City and Liverpool are already operating at a level above every other team with the rest playing catchup.

Manchester United and Chelsea under old boys; Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard are yet to convince that they have what it takes to fight for a UEFA Champions League qualifying slot this season.

The North London giants; Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are also still not fully convincing of their ability

N.B: As with everything concerning sports betting, these options are not guaranteed. Ensure that you bet responsibly.

#5 Chelsea to Concede

The Blues have been drinking goals

Under Frank Lampard, the Blues have played some nice football. One-touch passing with the fullbacks; Emerson and Cesar Azpilicueta providing the width.

Youngster, Mason Mount has looked impressive in the number 10 role behind the striker with his passing and ability to ghost into scoring positions.

However, the backline has been less impressive. The team has let in 8 goals in just 3 games so far and it looks like this will continue for a while.

While the return from injuries of N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger should add some solidity in the defensive midfield and centre-back positions, this doesn’t look like it would be enough to stop the team from leaking goals.

With this in mind, punters with BetBiga have been making huge money betting on opposing teams to score.

With games against Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and co still to come, Chelsea to concede is an option every smart punter is banking on.

#4 Liverpool Over 5.5 Corners

Betting on corners for Liverpool is good business

The Reds have shown the same level of seriousness as they did last season in their quest to become champions of England for the first time in 30 years.

The gegenpress style of play favoured by the manager; Juergen Klopp is one that demands forward motion at all times. As a result, the team’s inverted wingers; Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane stretch defenders with their runs and movement.

Roberto Firmino’s movement which draws out the opposing centre-backs often creates space for the two wingers to run into. This means that opposing defenders are pushed to make last-ditch interceptions and blocks; the type that leads to corner kicks.

This systems also allow the fullbacks; Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold the license to bomb forward and send crosses in. This means more corners for the side especially against opponents who defend in low blocks.

Liverpool is already averaging 4 corner-kicks per game and this could increase over the next round of games.

#3 Manchester United Over 1.5 Goals

Manchester United will score and concede a lot this season

At the beginning of the season, it had seemed like Manchester United had fixed some of its biggest personnel issues.

The arrivals of Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka has helped to plug the loopholes at centre-back and right-back positions. The choice by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to go for a counter-attacking style thereby utilizing the pace of the frontline makes sense given the personnel the club has at the moment.

However, the games played in the Premier League so far has shown that while the Red Devils can get goals (evidenced by the 4-0 mauling of Chelsea), the team can also concede.

While Maguire has added a certain solidity to the backline, the decision to field Paul Pogba in a midfield two has not worked out well enough as he has not shown the defensive discipline needed to get the job done.

Their matches so far have provided over 1.5 Goals outcome and this trend is expected to continue especially down United’s weak left-back spot.

#2 Arsenal to score in the Second Half

Arsenal’s scary attack will wear opponents down this season

The Gunners are still very much a work in progress as evidenced by their results and performances so far.

The arrival of record signing, Nicolas Pepe and the presence of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang means trouble for opponents.

Unai Emery’s team now has one of the best forward lines in the league with pace, power and precision. Ably supported by a midfield featuring the likes of Dani Ceballos, Mesut Ozil and rampaging fullbacks like Hector Bellerin, Goals will be a staple for Arsenal this season.

Given how most of the smaller teams in the Premier League defend deep and the pace which the team has, second-half goals for Arsenal are a good bet.

Teams who have defended deeply against them will tire as the game goes on leaving room for the speedsters to exploit. This has already happened in all their matches so far and is a trend that is expected to continue.

#1 Over 2.5 Goals Manchester City

Man City’s very scary attack will guarantee goals, lots of it

Saying that Manchester City will score goals seems to be kind of a moot point. After all, this is a team that has in the last two seasons in which it has won the league, scored 201 Premier League goals in 76 Premier League matches.

It has carried this very scary form into the new season and is not expected to slow down. Kevin de Bruyne is fully fit now and has already clocked four assists. Benjamin Mendy is almost back from injury and the addition of Joao Cancelo means a lot of deadly balls from the flanks would be coming in.

This is bad news for opposing defenders who are going to have to cope with a barrage of attacks from all angles against Pep Guardiola’s swarm of Cityzens

Already, the team has delivered Over 3.5 goal margins in all its matches so far, a scary trend that is expected to continue long into the season.
