Premier League Restart: Five Top Bets to Back
The Premier League is back. After a lengthy layoff due to the coronavirus pandemic outbreak, the English soccer league is set to restart this week and there are a number of superb games on the horizon and as such you should prepare for some great potential bets.
There are still a great many games to look forward to, with most teams having nine matches left to complete the 2019-20 season and some having ten, and as such a great deal is still to play for.
Yes, Liverpool should indeed walk away with their first domestic title in 30 years but there are still relegation battles and top four races to be competed for. Here’s a look at some interesting bets to consider in the first set of games to take place in the restart.
Arsenal to win at Man City +700
Marcus Rashford to score first vs Tottenham +450
Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace to end in a tie +215
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to finish topscorer +375
Wolves to finish in the top four +600
Manchester City have very little to play for. They won’t catch Liverpool in the Premier League title race and may well be rusty after the layoff. Arsenal on the other hand harbor hopes of a top four finish and before the break Mikel Arteta’s side were on a good run of form, so a win away (especially in front of an empty stadium) isn’t that unthinkable.
Marcus Rashford is getting a lot of good publicity in recent weeks due to his charitable work in the local community during the coronavirus outbreak, he is also having a great season and we can well see the England international popping up with the first goal as Man United take on Tottenham.
Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace is a game that has ‘tie’ written all of it, hence the odds are quite short, the plus side is that placing the bet will make the game infinitely more interesting to watch.
Currently Jamie Vardy leads the goalscoring charts, two ahead of the pack, but we’d put money on Arsenal hot-shot Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to make up the gap. First off the Gunners have one game more than Leicester City and the Gabon forward is also looking to get a new improved deal with his club and that can certainly put more fire in his game.
Wolves are just five points off a top four finish and we think a bet on the underdog, especially at the Premier League betting online odds provided, is a nice futures bet to back as the club restart their season with very winnable games against West Ham, Bournemouth and Aston Villa.
