Intro: Nothing Like a 10-Club Rush For Fans, Bettors and Oddsmakers?
English Premier League soccer Matchday 21 was a quirky one, together with three Home teams and three Road teams four and winning matches drawn. Six of the 10 matches had 4 goals or more scored in them and at the four of the 10 in which there weren’t 4+ goals there was a sterile Sheet. Along with seven, count’ em, seven groups went Over the posted Totals independently as a grand total of 34 goals were scored (3.4 gpg). And should you bet of the Favorites on Matchday 21? No money for Kleenex to cry in evenk, bruh, as just two chalks, Southampton and Stoke City, equally priced around +100, arrived as winners. Like most professional sports, World Football (Soccer) can be unpredictable as anything, as upstart recently promoted side and 2nd place (only by GD) Leicester City (12-7-2) reminds us of that every week.
And Bookmakers and Bettors have finally taken note, gambling the Foxes down all of the way to 12/1 (bet365) at most gambling sites now after still being at 2000/1 (Coral) on Oct. 8 to win the Premier League crown. With 2 of the top scorers in the league at Jamie Vardy (15 goals) and Riyad Mahrez (13 goals) and only 2 Losses, Leicester City has proved it is no fluke and will be playing top flight English football again but February, March, April and May will divide the wheat from the chaff in this league in a wide open season where it still honestly seems about seven nightclubs could make a run at the championship. And Wednesday’s 1-0 win for Leicester City against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane revealed we should all forget about The Past very quickly and concentrate on The Today and The Future my friend as matters which have never occurred appear to be happening all the time. Look at Donald Trump and Drones. When Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs all fail to triumph on a given matchday and nobody gives it any bother, then you know we’re all closer to becoming in that Prospective than we thought. Or, The Large Meteor is close. One of those two. Welcome to the New Age EPL, in which Foxes and Hammers are hanging with the Big Boys, for the time being . Let’s take a fast, thumbnail sketch look at the approaching Week 22 EPL fittings and see whether there are some angles at any of those 10 matches.
