The Premier League is Back! Best Bets on its Return

The Premier League is Back! Best Bets on its Return

Check out great free picks on the return of the English Premier League from its Covid-19 caused hiatus.

After a long layoff, the Premier League returns on June 17, with a bunch more games on the weekend. While Liverpool has locked up the top spot, clubs are still jockeying for spots in the next Champion’s League and trying to avoid relegation. We got the best picks for the league’s return this week and weekend.

Best Bets for the Return of the English Premier League

The English Premier League is back! With games taking place midweek and on the weekend, there is plenty of action and soccer odds open for betting! 

Manchester City vs. Arsenal FC

Home Team sports-interaction sports-interaction sports-interaction Away Team

Manchester City

-313 +215 (Draw)
+600 Arsenal

The action kicks off with two of the league’s most prestigious teams squaring off in an empty stadium in Manchester. Manchester City is firmly in second place in the table, up four points on Leicester City with a game in hand. Arsenal has underwhelmed this season, with only nine wins in 28 games. They sit eight points back of Chelsea for fourth. 

Manchester City has dominated Arsenal the last few years, winning six straight and outscoring Arsenal 17 to 2 over that stretch. Those are quite damning numbers and bettors should not have much confidence in Arsenal to snap to their streak of poor play against Man City this Wednesday.

Pick: Manchester City (-313)

AFC Bournemouth vs. Crystal Palace 

Over sports-interaction sports-interaction Under

2.5 Goals

+107 -147 2.5 Goals

One of the best over/under lines on the first weekend back includes one of the worst defensive teams (AFC Bournemouth) facing a team that just one year ago beat them 5-3. In fact, four of the last five matches between these two clubs have featured at least three goals. The extra juice on the over also makes it an attractive bet too.

Pick: Over 2.5 Goals (+107) 

Aston Villa vs. Chelsea FC

Home Team sports-interaction sports-interaction sports-interaction Away Team

Aston Villa

+403 +298 (Draw)
-207 Chelsea FC

One of the more risky bets worth taking on the weekend’s slate of match is a draw between Aston Villa and Chelsea FC. With 10 ties in 40 meetings between these two clubs, we think they are statistical due as none of their last eight meetings have resulted in a draw. 

Chelsea could also start a little slow. They are linked to Timo Werner, which suggests that management does not have enough confidence in their current squad to really compete in the EPL. However, this is a bet only worth taking for the juice on the draw and the fact these layoffs really make the first week back a bit more random than normal. 

Pick: Draw (+298) 

West Ham United vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers 

Will Both Teams Score? sports-interaction sports-interaction Will Both Teams Score?

Yes

-133 -116 No

Both these clubs are averaging and allowing more than one goal per game – especially West Ham who gives up 1.74 goals per game (fourth-most in the EPL). West Ham United has scored in six of their last ten EPL games, while Wolverhampton has only been held off the score sheet once in their last six games. We like it that both teams will score on this prop bet

Pick: Yes Both Teams Will Score (-133)
