If someone gave you a bag full of cash and told you place it on the team most likely to claim the Premier League title this season, the obvious answer would be Chelsea.
Currently priced as odds-on favourites with virtually every online bookmaker, the Blues certainly have the upper hand on paper. But is there any value out there if Chelsea falter at the final furlong having drawn with Southampton last weekend?
Picking out a possible value bet between Arsenal and Manchester United at the moment is not an easy task as there are less than three points separating the two clubs. One way to pick a winner between the two is to review the stats using an online betting assistant.
This piece of software allows you to use Excel spreadsheets and place bets with a single click based on certain conditions. For example, if Arsenal’s odds were to drift from 20/1 to 25/1 for the EPL title, then this could be deemed as good value and worth betting on. Using betting assistant, this wager can be placed automatically as the market shifts. This is certainly a great way to stay on top of the action and pick out the value between Arsenal and United.
Another way to speculate on whether or not United or Arsenal could pip Chelsea to the post is to study the recent form of each side. Arsenal are coming off an impressive if not disappointing performance against Monaco in the Champions League. Although the Gunners ultimately lost on aggregate, they had some flashes of brilliance and it is these flashes that could allow them to steal the title if Chelsea slip up.
For United, a 3-0 victory over Spurs in recent weeks was a sign that the side will continue fighting to the end. For a number of years, The Red Devils have shown their strength late in the season and this could certainly weigh heavy on Chelsea’s mind going into the homestretch.
Of course, whether you are betting on who will win the EPL or not, it is unlikely Chelsea will let a commanding lead slip with just a few games to go. However, anything can happen in football and if there is any value left in betting on the Premier League, Arsenal or Manchester United could be it.
