The Premier League is back this weekend! Although we’ve had a World Cup to help us through the offseason, we here at Betnow.ie are delighted with the return of real football. To celebrate, we’ve trawled through the betting sites and put together a list of Premier League specials for you to get your teeth in to. There’s no better way to mark the start of a new season than to place a bet that will keep you invested right until the end. Find the Premier League specials below, bookie by bookie.
Premier League Specials
Manchester City to Concede 25 or Fewer League Goals 5/1
We all know about Manchester City’s goal scoring prowess, which will no doubt continue this season, but how well will they defend? They are certainly capable, as they showed with a league-best 27 conceded last year. Despite their air of invincibility, they can be got at, especially when pressed in their own defensive third. Many pundits believe that City’s opponents will have more of a go at them this year, and why not? Sitting back against them clearly doesn’t work. Conceding 25 or fewer goals this season will arguably be a more impressive achievement than their fantastic 2017/2018 record.
Liverpool to score 85 + League goals 13/8
Expectations are high on Merseyside this year, and one thing we can fairly expect from Liverpool is goals. They racked up 84 league goals last year. If they improve as they are expected to, they could easily surpass that this season. Either way, it will be fun watching them try!
Mohamed Salah to Score 35 or More League Goals 25/1
Make no mistake, this is a big season for Mohamed Salah. After he tore the Premier League apart last year, all eyes will be on him. Will opposition defenses figure him out, resulting in the dreaded second season syndrome? Or, will he kick on and become one of the greatest Premier League goalscorers? He scored 32 last season. To get three more than that with a strengthened team behind him isn’t impossible.
Alexander Sorloth to score over 4.5 Premier League Goals 6/5
A fun one here from 888 Sport. Alexander Sorloth is a Norwegian striker who Crystal Palace signed after half a season for Danish side FC Midtjylland. The £8.8 million fee caused quite the stir, being described as ‘crazy’ by the Danish press. Small change by English standards, but now his name is out there. You can bet on how well he will do, he’s 6/5 to score over 4.5 league goals.
Southampton to be Relegated 15/2
They’re not the first name to come to mind when you think of relegation. However, the Saints could be in trouble. Southampton have been steadily declining over the last few years. They are a far cry from the team that had the league’s best defense three years ago. As well as that, they seemed to have lost the knack for making those Southampton-esque signings. Perhaps they are sick of the site of Liverpool coming to take them away, but their squad now leaves a lot to be desired.
