Premiership Soccer betting – Matchday 5 Preview

Premiership football betting – Matchday 5 Preview & Odds (Sep 20-21).

Premiership betting markets have moved a great deal in a short time. With the new Premier League season just four weeks old, early leaders Chelsea have hardened to firm 2.150* favourites in the outright Premiership betting at Best sportsbook, while defending champions, Man Utd currently 14th have drifted to 3.500*. After impressive weekend wins both Liverpool and Arsenal have shortened to 7.000* and 6.500* respectively, in early Premiership soccer betting moves but with 34 games to go, it is surely too soon to draw any conclusions.

Premiership Table Has Unfamiliar Look Ahead of Matchday 5

Though Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal occupy the top three spots in the Premier League after four games, the table still has an unusual look to it. Despite a heavy summer of transfers, Spurs are rock bottom with just one point, while Manchester United are in 14th having lost at Anfield on Saturday – though have played one game less than everyone else. The Red Devils have another big fixture this weekend when they travel to Stamford Bridge to meet the current favourites in the outright Premiership betting at Platinum sportsbook.

Chelsea & Man Utd Clash at the Bridge

The Blues are on a roll, having easily dealt with the challenge from the other side of Manchester last weekend, beating City 3-1. The dismissal of John Terry could have been crucial, leaving the England defender suspended for the visit of United, but he has been cleared on appeal. Alex Ferguson is however, without Nemanja Vidic\’s after his red card against Liverpool. Fergie could name Cristiano Ronaldo as a substitute after reaching fitness ahead of schedule, but Michael Carrick is out for 6 weeks, and Dimitar Berbatov has a knee problem. Man Utd will want to avoid a successive defeat against serious title rivals but sportbook sees them as under-dogs on current form, and Chelsea are of course unbeaten in 84 home games: Chelsea 1.917 (0 & -0.5)*, Manchester United 2.010 (0 & +0.5)* – a market priced to less than 105%.

Go to online sportsbook for a host of Premiership betting specials including two way corners, and yellow card betting markets for all the weekend fixtures, priced to less than 102%, while on Friday\’s from 2pm CET, Premiership Asian Handicaps are priced as low as 101%.
