No Break from Betting on the Premier League

No Break from Betting on the Premier League

The Premier League is on its winter break, just after Burnley play a game. There are no matches to bet on this week, but there are still plenty of Premier League related markets to place wagers on. Let’s look at some of the best of them.

The next manager to leave a Premier League club is always an interesting market to bet on. Usually, a bet on whoever is the manager of Watford is a decent one to make. Roy Hodgson hasn’t even had a game yet but there are only five Premier League managers ahead of him in the betting.

It’s not all about a boss being sacked of course. Hodgson (10/1 at SkyBet) is in his 70s. Not wishing illness on him but it’s always possible that could happen, and he’d have to quit the job. Putting up with the owners of that club must be a health-risk.

Sean Dyche is 10/3 favourite at Paddy Power to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club. Burnley are in relegation trouble but if he was to leave, it’d probably be at the end of the season. SkyBet offer 4/1 on no manager to leave their club. That doesn’t look a bad bet, especially with Norwich and Leeds making revivals in recent weeks.

Newcastle United Set to Spen Big

The transfer deadline is fast approaching and there’s plenty to bet on. Newcastle have money to burn but so far only signed Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood. You can bet on how many signings they will make in this transfer window. Under 5.5 is 4/7 at SkyBet. Just imagine yourself shouting at the telly for Newcastle not to sign more players.

One signing they are likely to make is that of Bruno Guimaraes, he’s 1/4 at SkyBet to join from Lyon. The same bookmakers have Dele Alli at 9/4 to leave Tottenham and become a Newcastle United player. Gareth Bale is another possible signing but is 14/1 at Paddy Power to leave Real Madrid.

Still on the Newcastle theme, who will be relegated from the Premier League this season? Newcastle won at Leeds last weekend and are now 5/4 at Paddy Power to be the richest club in the Championship next season. Despite two league wins, Norwich are still 1/5 at Paddy Power to be relegated, with Watford 1/3 and Burnley 4/7.

How about a club finishing in the top half of the Premier League? Brighton and Hove Albion are 8/11 at Ladbrokes to do just that. If they could turn a few draws into wins, that’s a good bet.

A top four finish is almost like winning a trophy these days. Tottenham are only seventh but just two points behind fourth placed Manchester United with two games in hand. They are 7/4 at Ladbrokes to get into the top four and a decent bet if improving their away record.
