So, in order to aid your Premier League betting journey for the 2023/24 season, we delve into insights gleaned from past seasons and what we have seen so far from the preseason.
Chelsea’s Dilemma: A Recent History of Poor Value
Chelsea’s unexpected 12th-place finish in the previous season has somewhat emphasized their recent historical trend of underperformance. Betting on Chelsea in the 1X2 and Asian handicap markets over the past five seasons would have resulted in substantial losses. This chronic misestimation by bookmakers prompts a pause for thought when considering the Blues as potential betting options, urging bettors to weigh their choices carefully. Although their transfer window activity has been encouraging and their performance against Liverpool was pretty impressive, our advice would be to wait a little longer to see if this is just IGG (initial gra gra) or something of substance.
Beware of Brighton
Brighton has risen in prominence since entering the Premier League in 2017, culminating in one of the most exciting and impressive 2022/23 campaigns. While their progress is undeniable, historical data sheds light on the potential pitfalls of betting on this team. Despite their 18 victories in the previous season, Brighton was not one of the better teams when it came to the Win, lose or draw market (A.K.A 1×2 market). Counterintuitively, opposing them in the Asian handicap market proved profitable and they were also very reliable in the over 1.5 goals category. Understanding these trends could prove pivotal in your betting strategy.
Will There be Home Advantage?
The concept of home advantage has always held significant weight in football, but recent years have seen fluctuations due to many reasons one of them being covid. But a change occurred in the 2022/23 season, with home sides making a comeback from previous seasons. Understanding this shift and incorporating it into your bets could yield a positive impact on your betting success.
Liverpool’s Encore: Betting on Goals
Jurgen Klopp’s vision of intense football has tended to translate into on-pitch enthusiasm for Liverpool, but it’s important to note that their victories aren’t necessarily accompanied by goal-laden fixtures. Betting on under 2.5 goals in the matches that follow after a Liverpool win has yielded an impressive number over the past five seasons. This unique trend is worth considering when planning your bets for the upcoming matches. It is also possible that the team might have been too quiet in the transfer window as their opponents strengthened their ranks, so keep that in mind if you plan on adding them to your slip.
GG A.K.A BTTS Conundrum: Value in Unexpected Places
The Goal-Goal or Both Teams to Score (BTTS) market often puzzles bettors, and yet somehow manages to be very popular in spite of common assumptions constantly being challenged by historical data. Of course, it would be tempting to assume that top-performing teams would concede fewer goals, but strangely, last season demonstrated otherwise. Betting on BTTS ‘no’ or ‘NG’ (any of the teams not to score) for lower-ranking teams, especially those finishing 11th to 17th, yielded significant returns. This unexpected trend encourages a re-evaluation of the GG strategy.
One final short tip would be to try to understand the market dynamics of the new season before placing any massive bets as some teams will drastically change year to year, as usual.
