  • BookMaker.eu The race for England’s Champions League spots is heating up with a little more than two months left in the Premier League season. There’s no question that Liverpool will win its first Premier League title, and that Manchester City will finish in the top four, but there will be plenty of drama surrounding England’s other two spots in the most prestigious competition in... 

  • BookMaker.eu The third time was the charm for Burnley. After being immediately relegated during their first two returns to the top-flight of English football in 2010 and 2015, the Clarets have now spent four straight seasons in the Premier League. It hasn’t been easy to stay up, but Burnley has made it work, and this club will certainly survive at least another year. The Clarets are currently in ninth place in the Premier League table with 38 points, placing them just two points behind Saturday’s opponent, Tottenham Hotspur. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s been a record-setting season for Liverpool. The Reds have already broken numerous records in their march to the Premier League title, and they are 11 games from making history. At 26-1-0, Liverpool has the best record in the history of the league through 27 matches, and the Reds are set to smash the points record of 100 that Manchester City set two years ago. Seven more victories would move Liverpool to the century mark, and the Reds have 11 games to get there. They are also closing in on b... 

  • BookMaker.eu This has been the worst week at the Etihad since Sheikh Mansour took over Manchester City over a decade ago. Last Friday, UEFA ruled that Manchester City would be ineligible to take part in the Champions League for the next two seasons, and that the club would be fined €30 million. That would deal a severe blow to the back-to-back Premier League champions, as they would miss out on the riches of the most prestigious league in club soccer. The Citizens are appealing the decision, but it will be i... 

  • BookMaker.eu Chelsea has allowed the rest of the competition to gain ground in the race for the Premier League’s final spot in the Champions League. The Blues seemed to be well on their way to finishing behind Liverpool, Leicester City, and Manchester City in the top four, but a recent downturn has opened the race up. Five clubs, including Monday’s opponent Manchester United, are within six points of Chelsea for the spot, and the Blues’ next two opponents are the Red Devils and Tottenham Hotspur. Failing to ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Barring a majestic collapse from Leicester City or Manchester City, three of the four Champions League slots allotted to the Premier League have already been filled. Liverpool, Leicester City, and Manchester City all have at least a 14-point advantage in the race for a place in the top four with 14 matches left to play, so the Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United will need to pick up as many points as possible to catch Chelsea for the final spot. Both teams are sitting on 34 points, alo... 

  • BookMaker.eu Manchester United are the only reason that Liverpool aren’t playing for immortality. The Red Devils are the only team in the Premier League to win a point off the Reds in league action, playing them to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford back on October 20. Liverpool have won their other 20 EPL games to hold a commanding 14-point lead on Manchester City more than halfway through the season, and they are set to smash the Citizens’ recent single season Premier League records. They can move closer to those ... 

  • BookMaker.eu This is a season for the ages for Liverpool. It would take a massive collapse for the Reds to miss out on their first league title in over three decades, and they have been more impressive than any other team in Premier League history through the first half of this year’s campaign. Liverpool are 19-1-0 with their lone draw coming on the road against Manchester United, and this club hasn’t lost a league match in over a year. Tottenham Hotspur are looking to break up Liverpool’s bid of joining the... 

  • BookMaker.eu Arsenal’s coaching wheel continues to spin, as no one has been able to take this storied club back to its previous heights. Arsene Wenger and the club unceremoniously split at the end of the 2017-18 campaign, and former Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery was unable to turn things around after a little more than a year on the job. Former captain Freddie Ljungberg took over on an interim basis after Emery was sacked in late November, and he was removed from that position and replaced by Mikel ... 

  • BookMaker.eu This is not the return to the top flight that Norwich City were envisioning. The Canaries appeared to be well on their way to staying in the Premier League after some impressive performances in their first five matches. Norwich City defeated Newcastle United in their first home game, and they nearly knocked off Chelsea the following week. Their victory over defending league champions Manchester City appeared to ensconce their status as survivors, but they have won just one domestic match in thei... 

  • BookMaker.eu Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are two teams heading in opposite directions coming into this match. Spurs have shown signs of life under Jose Mourinho, and they have won four of their last five matches to move within three points of Chelsea for a spot in the top four in the Premier League table. Meanwhile, the Blues have lost four of their last five matches, and they have fallen behind both Leicester City and Manchester City in the table. Chelsea needs to stop the drop quickly as a loss would lea... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s been a rough last few seasons for Southampton. The Saints made it back to the Premier League in 2012, and their young players immediately made them one of the most competitive teams outside the Big Six. Current stars like Dejan Lovren, Luke Shaw, Dusan Tadic, Toby Alderweireld, and Sadio Mane first cut their teeth with the Saints, but Southampton eventually sold all those players to larger clubs, and they have been treading water since those moves.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Manchester Derby is the best game of the week, and all eyes will be on the Etihad Stadium this Sunday when Manchester City hosts Manchester United. Neither team is living up to expectations this season with City stuck in third place and United in sixth place after 15 matches. One of these two teams will deal with more disappointment, while the other will have bragging rights and something to feel good about with Christmas right around the corner. Any sort of result would be celebrated by Uni... 

  • BookMaker.eu The only two teams with single digits this season will square off in NBC’s Premier League Match of the Week this Saturday. It’s been a dismal year for both Southampton and Watford. The Saints are sitting on nine points with a 2-3-8 record, and they have given up more goals (31) than any other team in the Premier League. Meanwhile, the Hornets are in last place with just eight points from a 1-5-7 record, and they are a long way away from being the team that made it to the FA Cup Final last season. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu This is an unfamiliar position for Manchester City. The Citizens are in fourth place in the Premier League table with three losses in their first 12 matches. Manchester City are looking up at unbeaten Liverpool, Leicester City, and Chelsea, and their bid to win three straight domestic titles for the first time in club history is in serious jeopardy. City are currently nine points behind Liverpool almost a third of the way through the season, so they can’t afford to drop points at home against Ch... 

  • BookMaker.eu Currently, Arsenal are in disarray. The mandate for Unai Emery is clear. He must return the Gunners to the Champions League so that the club can stand a better chance of competing against its Premier League rivals. However, there are numerous issues hanging over Arsenal. Granit Xhaka was stripped of his captaincy last week, leading to the midfielder expressing dismay about his role with the club, and no one knows what to do with the highly paid Mesut Ozil. Despite all the drama, Arsenal are in fifth place in the Premier League, but the club could be set to slide down the table with a road match against Leicester City this weekend. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Chelsea are off to a strong start through the first quarter of the season. The Blues are in fourth place in the Premier League table with a 6-2-2 record, and they are already four points clear of Arsenal in their bid to remain in the Champions League next season. Chelsea have won four straight matches in league play since their loss to Liverpool at the end of September, and the Blues are odds-on favorites per the Premier League betting odds on the road against Watford this weekend. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Clarets are off to a great start this season. Burnley are in 8th place in the Premier League table with a record of 3-3-3. All three of their losses have been to teams in the top five of the standings, but they will try to earn a result when they face 4th place Chelsea at Turf Moor. The Blues are 5-2-2 this year, and they have fared better than most believed they would due to the transfer ban. Chelsea have seen some new talents emerge with the departure of Eden Hazard, ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Crystal Palace are off to a fantastic start this campaign. Roy Hodgson’s club is currently in sixth place in the standings with a 4-2-2 record, and the Glaziers already have a victory over Manchester United to their credit. They would love to knock off the other Manchester club at home this Saturday, but Palace know they would be fortunate to pick up a result at Selhurst Park against league champions Manchester City.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Over 200 teams will have taken part in this year’s Europa League when it’s all said and done. Qualifying for the Europa League began in late June, and teams from 55 different associations have taken part in the competition. Due to what we saw from the Premier League last year in European play, English teams Arsenal and Manchester United are favorites to win it all per the Europa League betting odds, and they are both off to good starts.... 

  • BookMaker.eu West Ham have had a dream start to this campaign. The Hammers are currently sitting in fifth place, and they have an excellent chance to climb higher this week against Crystal Palace. West Ham are slight odds-on favorites per the three-way line odds, and the Hammers boast one of the best home crowds in England. Crystal Palace have already stunned one team on the road this year though, and the Glaziers will want to prove the oddsmakers wrong once more.... 

  • BookMaker.eu With Liverpool currently perfect on the year, Manchester City know what they must do. The Citizens are five points behind Liverpool in their bid to repeat as Premier League champions, so they must not drop points against mid-table teams like Everton.

  • BookMaker.eu Two teams that are expected to be involved in the relegation battle throughout the season will face off with the chance for crucial points this Saturday when Newcastle United host Brighton and Hove Albion.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United are currently in the drop zone with a 1-1-3 record, but both Wolverhampton and Watford are expected to surpass them when their schedules get more manageable. The Magpies desperately need a win here. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu It was announced earlier this week that Manchester City had become the first billion-dollar club in England. The Citizens’ brass has spent at least $1 billion this year between transfer fees and wages on players, and that has made them the odds-on favorites per the soccer betting odds to win the Premier League once again. They are massive favorites on the Asian Handicap line coming into their tilt with Norwich City this week.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Through the first three weeks of the new Premier League campaign, Liverpool are top of the table. The defending Champions of Europe are the only team to have won all three of their matches, and they are looking to stay ahead of the pack when they take on Burnley FC this week. The Clarets have looked sharp, appearing much better now that they don’t have to contend with Europa League qualifiers as they did at the start of last season....
