Barclays Premier League Betting Odds and Tips

The world’s richest and most watched football league in the world, The Barclays’ Premier League, is entering the final third of the 2014/15 campaign in what appears to be a two-horse race for the coveted title.

While much attention will be on whether the trophy will be paraded around the streets of south west London or the Etihad Stadium come the 24th of May, it is the relegation battle that is shaping up to be one of the most open in years, with the fight for survival expected to go right down to the wire.

The Premier League remains the most popular league on a global scale, highlighted by a television audience of close to 5 billion people, with 98% of matches available through more than 80 broadcasters outside of the UK.

Talking in monetary terms, the Premier League’s global rights, come in at around £5.5 billion, with the Asian market contributing around £2 billion.

Defending champions Manchester City are expected to earn around £100 million this season from the television rights, while some of the smaller clubs can expect to earn in the region of £30-£50 million for the right to play in the League.

When you take that final statistic into account, one can understand how important Premier League status has become in financial terms. There is simply too much at stake for the bottom clubs, survival is the only option and with only ten-points separating the bottom half of the table, the battle at the bottom is set for another thrilling climax.

Time to have a look at the peer-to-peer odds that WBX will offer through their live betting exchange, on the overall outcome of the 2014/15 Premier League season.


Defending champions Manchester City and Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea, appear to be the only clubs in the running for the 2014/15 Premier League title, which is clearly reflected in WBX’s market leading odds, with Chelsea at 1.28 and Manchester City at 5.2.

This doesn’t mean to say that surprise package Southampton, currently lying in fourth place at 320.0, Manchester United in third at 55.0 and Arsenal currently in fifth at 36.0 couldn’t upset the odds with a late season surge. After-all Liverpool racked up an impressive 41 points in the last third of the 2013/14 season, to finish in second place, two points behind eventual winners Manchester City.

Easier said than done when you to take into account the, Suarez-Sturridge goal scoring exploits that saw Liverpool’s final third run fuelled by an additional 48 goals, a scenario that is unlikely to be repeated by the chasing pack this season.

Leaders Chelsea are currently three-points better off than at the same stage last season and if they can muster up another 33 points from their remaining games, (which is what they achieved in the final third of last season), one wonders whether 85 points will be sufficient considering City tallied 86 in last season’s winning campaign.

On the other hand, it may very well be enough if Manchester City equals their final third point’s tally of 36 from last season, which will leave them two points off the pace on 83.

If City is going to get in a position of strength come the final three matches of the season, then one expects the magnificent Sergio Aguero will have to take full responsibility from a goal-scoring perspective.

Looking at the last five matches of the season for Chelsea and City, Mourinho’s team probably has the more difficult finish of the two clubs.

Chelsea’s run-in includes Arsenal (A), Crystal Palace (H), Liverpool (H), West Brom (A) and Sunderland (H), while City takes on, Aston Villa (H), Tottenham (A), QPR (H), Swansea (A) and Southampton (H).

Liverpool and Arsenal could very well be pushing for Champions League football and will be targeting all the points they can get their hands on over the final stretch, the outcome of these two fixtures possibly deciding Chelsea’s fate. The other three fixtures will also give Chelsea something to think about, with West Brom, Sunderland and QPR expected to be scrapping for relegation which will unquestionably raise their intensity.

Much like Chelsea, City could face a Southampton and Spurs gunning for Champions League football, and again three teams in Villa, QPR and Swansea that could be fighting for survival.

Another supporting factor in Chelsea’s title credentials worth pointing out, are statistics that show John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic featuring in the top five defenders, Hazard and Fabregas who occupy the top two spots in midfield and Diego Costa who tops the table in front of goal, key players from back-to-front outperforming the rest in the league.

Whatever the outcome, Chelsea do look well placed to lift a fifth title and first since the 2009/10 season.

Mourinho guided Chelsea to the title in the 2004/05 and 2005/06 seasons and has since captured a further two league titles in Italy with Inter Milan and one in Spain with Real Madrid. It is tough to see the experienced Portuguese manager letting this one slip, however laying against a late season slip up on WBX might be worth a look.


With only 9-points separating Leicester at the bottom and Everton in twelfth, it is anybody’s guess as to who will be in the Championship next season.

WBX shows Burnley at 1.48, Leicester at 1.72 and QPR at 1.65, as the most likely teams to lose their all-important Premier League status.

West Brom at 5.6, Hull at 1.99, Aston Villa at 3.55 and Sunderland at 7.2, on WBX, all avoided relegation last season by the skin of their teeth and are expected to be involved in a dogfight once again. Looking at odds to lay against teams involved in the relegation battle will open up some pretty interesting opportunities.


Diego Costa at 1.94 is well placed to follow in the footsteps of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Didier Drogba (twice) and Nicolas Anelka, all former Chelsea players to win the Premier League’s Golden Boot.

If Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, at 2.78, manages to overhaul the Brazilian, then a knock-on effect could very well be a second consecutive title for Manuel Pellegrini’s team.

Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez, has been nothing short of sensational since his arrival from Barcelona at the start of the season. His work-rate off the ball and devastating goal-scoring exploits have been quite staggering and in a class of their own for much of the season.

Sanchez is at 13.5 to follow Thierry Henry (four) and Robin Van Persie, as the only other Arsenal players to win the Golden Boot, a price definitely worth looking at on WBX.
