Free tips Premier League Betting: Chelsea Look Top 2 Material with the Addition of Romelu Lukaku

Premier League Betting Odds Picks & Predictions

The new Premier League season kicks-off on Friday 13th August, with Manchester City looking to retain the title they won with ease last term.

Pep Guardiola’s men are favourites at 8/11 with Betway to keep the trophy at the Etihad Stadium, having already acquired the services of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa for the tidy sum of £100 million and reportedly looking to add Harry Kane at an even higher cost.

If they secure Kane, it’s difficult to see past Manchester City claiming another league title. However, their ongoing pursuit of Champions League glory could potentially prove to be a significant distraction and that alone makes their Premier League betting odds too short for consideration at this stage.


Chelsea for Top-2?

The main threat to the Citizens could be Chelsea at 5/1 with bet365*, who beat City on three occasions in three separate competitions late last season.

The Blues improved significantly once Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard last season and they’ve just finalised the deal that will see Romelu Lukaku head back to Stamford Bridge to provide a real focal point to their attack. They could certainly be worth a punt at 6/4 with bet365* for a Top 2 Finish.


Liverpool struggled with injuries last season and only really found any consistency over the last few weeks of the campaign.

There’s a feeling in some quarters that the current first team may be coming to the end of its natural cycle and is in need a bit of an overhaul, but those who believe that there’s another title in these players can back the Reds at 6/1 with Betway.

The only other club seen as having any genuine hope of lifting the Premier League title are Manchester United at 8/1 with William Hill.

The Red Devils have spent heavily on Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, but there remain doubts as to whether they can find the winning formula under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and whether Paul Pogba will ever find a role that suits the needs of the team.


Premier League Dark Horses

Of the possible outsiders with odds off 50/1 or more, the following teams may give you a bit of fun…

Leicester have narrowly and agonisingly missed out on Champions League football in each of the last two seasons, but they again look to have recruited well in bringing in Patson Daka (RB Salzburg), Boubakary Soumare (Lille) and Ryan Bertrand (Southampton) over the summer.

The 11/10 with 888sport on the Foxes claiming another Top-6 Finish looks decent enough value, particularly with serious doubts surrounding the North London duo of Arsenal and Tottenham.


Other Premier League Betting Odds

At the foot of the table, it’s never any great surprise to see the three newly promoted clubs as the three favourites to be relegated straight back from whence they came. This season is no different, with Norwich City at 10/11 with William Hill for relegation, Watford at 1/1 with bet365* and Brentford at 6/4 with Betway.

Of the three, Watford look the most likely candidates for a swift return to the Championship. The Hornets made a raft of summer signings, but they’ve not spent a great deal and few of the new recruits really look likely to have a significant impact.


To Finish Bottom

Watford could also potentially lose a number of players to the Africa Cup of Nations in January and February, so at 7/2 with Betway ‘To Finish Bottom’, they could be worth some careful consideration.


Top Promoted Team

On a similar theme, Brentford look a good option at 13/8 with Betfair as the ‘Top Promoted Team’. The Bees have kept their squad intact, have a striker in Ivan Toney who looks capable of adapting to and scoring goals in the top-flight and their analytical approach usually pays dividends in the transfer market.


Relegation Betting

There could be value in looking at Crystal Palace at 7/4 with William Hill. The Eagles have brought in Patrick Vieira as their new manager, but he doesn’t have a great record in the dugout and he’s had to try and reinvigorate the ageing squad that he inherited with younger new recruits.

Another ageing squad is that of Burnley, where Sean Dyche pulls off a minor miracle every season in keeping the Clarets above the relegation trap door. It’s difficult to see how what has been yet another relatively quiet transfer window to date helps their cause. Burnley are 5/2 with 888sport for the drop.

Newcastle United look to be on the verge of signing their top transfer target in Joe Willock from Arsenal, but they still look short of overall depth and quality, so the 11/4 for then to be relegated with bet365* is sure to have plenty of takers.

Southampton are the other team who look to be in danger. They struggled badly at times last season and losing Danny Ings to Aston Villa doesn’t help their cause. The Saints can be backed at 9/2 for relegation with SpreadEx.


Premier League Sack Race

The Next Manager To Leave Post market sees Xisco Munoz of Watford at 6/1 with Betfair.

The Hornets have a reputation for pulling the trigger on their managers once a few results go against them, so Xisco (a manager they brought in from Dinamo Tbilisi in Georgia last season) looks the obvious choice in this market.


Premier League 2021/22 Predictions:

  • Top 2 Finish – Chelsea @ 6/4 with bet365*
  • Top 6 Finish – Leicester City @ 11/10 with 888sport
  • Top Promoted Team – Brentford @ 13/8 with Betfair
  • To Finish Bottom – Watford @ 7/2 with Betway
  • Relegation – Crystal Palace @ 7/4 with William Hill
  • Next Manager To Leave Post – Xisco Munoz (Watford) @ 6/1 with Betfair

Full Terms and Conditions

Qualifying

  1. Offer available to new customers registering on or after 12:00 UK Time on 17th January 2019.
  2. Make a qualifying deposit of £5* or more to qualify for a 100% matched amount in Bet Credits up to £100*. Your qualifying deposit is your largest deposit (capped at £100*) made in the 7 days prior to you claiming the offer. Apple Pay, Fast Bank Transfer, Google Pay, PayPal, paysafecard and all other prepaid credit and debit cards, where available, cannot be used for either your qualifying deposit or any subsequent withdrawal of returns from Bet Credits stakes unless we have successfully verified an accepted form of your Identity Documents and you have entered a Postal Verification Code (PVC), or we have successfully verified two accepted forms of your Identity Documents.
    For more details on accepted Identity Documents, how to enter a PVC, or to upload your Identity Documents, simply log in to your account, go to Members then My Account and select Know Your Customer.
  3. You must claim your offer within 30 days of registering your account.
  4. The maximum amount of Bet Credits that can be claimed is £100*. For example, a qualifying deposit of £150 will qualify for £100 of Bet Credits.

Releasing your Bet Credits

  1. Your Bet Credits will be held in your account balance and are non-withdrawable. To release your Bet Credits you must place qualifying bets with a total stake value equal to or greater than the value of your qualifying deposit (capped at £100*) and they must settle within 30 days of claiming the offer.
  2. Your Bet Credits will normally be available to use within one hour of the qualifying settled bet requirement being met.
  3. You may have more than one Bet Credits offer available on your account at any one time. However, qualifying settled bets will only count towards releasing one of the offers. You may choose which offer is active within the Members section.
  4. Any single bets placed at odds of less than 1/5 (1.20) will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. In multiple bets at least one selection must have odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater to count.
  5. In market/fixture combinations that only have two or three potential outcomes (for example Soccer Full Time Result), where you have placed bets on more than one potential outcome, either pre-match or In-Play, only the outcome with your highest cumulative stake will count towards the settled bets requirement (if you have placed the same highest cumulative stake on more than one selection in the same market/fixture combination then only one will count towards the settled bets requirement). Any bets settled on other selections in the same market/fixture combination will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. This term is applied in conjunction with the other restrictions. For example, if you have a £10 bet on Man Utd to beat Chelsea and a £15 bet on Chelsea to beat Man Utd on the Full Time Result market at odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater, only the stake on Chelsea will count towards the release of your Bet Credits (if both bets were for £10 then £10 would count towards the release of your Bet Credits). If you were to place a further £10 bet on Man Utd to beat Chelsea at odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater, this cumulative £20 stake will count towards the release of your Bet Credits and not the £15 stake on Chelsea.
  6. Fully Cashed Out, Instant Games, Gaming, void bets and In-Play bets which are settled as a push do not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. Where a stake has been partially Cashed Out, only the remaining active stake will count towards the release of your Bet Credits. Where a bet has been edited using our Edit Bet feature, the original stake will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits and only the new stake on the new bet will count.
  7. If you do not have qualifying settled bets to the value of your qualifying deposit (capped at £100*) within 30 days of claiming the offer, your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed and the offer will be closed.

Using Bet Credits

  1. Your Bet Credits are non-withdrawable. Any returns from Bet Credits stakes will be added to your Withdrawable Balance but Bet Credits stakes are not included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) would give a return of £30 (£20 winnings plus £10 stake), whereas a £10 Bet Credits stake placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) would give a net return of £20, as the £10 Bet Credits stake is not returned.
  2. Stakes can be funded in part by your Bet Credits and part with your Withdrawable Balance; however the Bet Credits element of the stake will not be included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) which was funded by £5 Bet Credits and £5 cash would give a net return of £25 (£20 winnings plus £5 cash stake) as the £5 Bet Credits stake would not be returned. If a bet is void and has had an opportunity to win (for example, in the event of a push), Bet Credits stakes will not be returned. If a bet is void and has not had an opportunity to win (for example, when a Goalscorer bet is placed on a player who does not then take part in the match), Bet Credits stakes will be returned.
  3. For the purpose of Cash Out, the value displayed will already have the Bet Credits stake removed and will be the actual return received if Cashed Out.
  4. Your Bet Credits cannot be:
    • transferred to Casino, Games, Poker or Bingo;

    • used as stakes on Tote (including other pool betting), Colossus bets and Lotto markets;

    • used as stakes on Bankers, If Bets, Reverse If Bets or Teasers.

  5. Your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed if your account is inactive for 90 consecutive days. Making a deposit, placing a Sports bet or participation in any Casino, Games, Poker or Bingo product is deemed as having activity on an account.
  6. Bet Credits can be used as a qualifying bet for the following offers:
    • ITV Racing 4/1

    • Feature Race 4/1

    • Bore Draw Money Back

  7. Bets placed using Bet Credits will not qualify for the following bonuses:
    • Soccer Accumulator Bonus
    • Tennis Accumulator Bonus
    • Parlay Bonus
    • Euro Basketball Bonus
