Premier League Betting: The Race for Second Is Now the Best Bet In Town
It’s now looking increasingly clear that Liverpool are firmly marching towards their first domestic title in 30 years and as such it’s a good time to consider the new Premier League race that is tempting many into making a punt. The race for second.
Jurgen Klopp’s men thumped local rivals Everton 5-2 in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday to retain the healthy eight point lead over the chasing pack and there is little sign that Liverpool will slip enough to offer their challengers any genuine hope.
Most would have backed Pep Guardiola’s Man City to be the side to pick up a runner-up finish but recent poor form has let others to push into the mix.
Defeats to Norwich City, Wolves and Liverpool, and a draw at Newcastle United, have left Man City battling Leicester City and Chelsea in a push to finish behind the runaway champions-elect.
Brendan Rodgers has seen his Foxes side go on a marvelous seven match winning run, with striker Jamie Vardy bagging in all of those victories, and the King Power side now sit in second spot with a view to reducing the gap to Liverpool.
New signings Ayoze Perez and Youri Tielemans, who made his temporary move a permanent one in July, have added more options in the final third and playmaker James Maddison is showing sparkling form and if Rodgers can continue this fine run then Leicester City may just be able to stick with those illustrious sides around them.
Frank Lampard’s first season in charge at Chelsea started poorly but the Blues have improved in recent months with young talents like Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fiyako Tomori have been especially impressive.
Most US Sportsbooks offer very competitive Premier League betting and a wager will always make watching English soccer that little bit sweeter.
