The Premier League is arguably the biggest domestic football league in the world today. Bookmakers have hundreds of markets on every game in the league, while there is a plethora of outright markets available to you.
Having such choice is in your favour as a punter as you may have a strong opinion on how many bookings, corners or goals there will be in the game, rather than the traditional full-time result.
Here are some things to look out for in the 2021/22 campaign.
Newcastle Are Not Too Good to Be Relegated
Newcastle have been in the spotlight recently following their takeover. The future is definitely bright for the northeast club, as they are sure to receive a lot of investment over the next few years.
Unfortunately for Newcastle fans, their current team is really poor. They are 6/5 in the Premier League relegation odds from Betfair and on the evidence of what we have seen from them so far, they may end up in the bottom three.
The January transfer window is obviously the chance for Newcastle to add to their squad, however, it’s unlikely they will be securing any big-name players in that window. Good players will not want to join a team threatened by relegation. The club may have to wait until next summer to land the calibre of players they want.
Michail Antonio Will Keep on Scoring
The competition for the Premier League Golden Boot is very strong this season as Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the Premier League over the summer. Mo Salah has got off to a fast start and is the leading goalscorer so far in the 2021/22 campaign.
One player who is in the best form of his career and looks the best value in the leading goalscorer market, is Michail Antonio. The West Ham striker has scored six goals in his opening nine games this season.
The Hammers are having another fantastic season under David Moyes. They should be pushing for a European finish once again. Antonio can be backed each way with four places available to you. If he continues at the pace he is going, he should be amongst the leaders at the end of the campaign.
City And Chelsea Locked in Title Bid
This year’s league championship race is going to be one of the closest we have seen in a long time. Last season’s title winners Manchester City, European champions Chelsea, and Liverpool have all got off to a fast start.
What is going to really help City and Chelsea is the depth they have in their squads, particularly around Christmas and February (when the Champions League knockout stages begin). Liverpool have a strong starting XI but if they pick up a few injuries, the quality of their side declines.
It is very hard to split City and Chelsea this season, however, they can be backed in a dual forecast. If they both finish in the top two, you will be paid out as a winner, regardless of the order.
Good luck with your Premier League bets!
