16.06.2020

Great news for our many sports bettors: with the return of the English Premier League, the biggest football competition in the world kicks off again on Wednesday June 17! Though Liverpool is virtually already certain of the title, there’s still plenty of exciting bets left to place. Which team will step up and claim the first victory in months on matchday 30? Let’s check some key games and see if we can win some big money with smart bets!

Aston Villa – Sheffield United (Wednesday June 17, 7 p.m.)

While this bill may not look like the most anticipated encounter in the Premier League on a regular matchday, Aston Villa receives the honours of hosting the first English football game since the league was forced into inactivity. The club from Aston, Birmingham had been fighting to prove its worth in the greatest football league in the world, but it’s been an uphill battle: Villa is currently second to last...

Sheffield United, starting in the Premier League for the first time in twelve years, is doing remarkably well. Since 2013, the Blades have been working with diligence on restoring their once-proud reputation as Premier League greats. In their first season in England’s highest football league, they’ve managed to knock their way up to a seventh place, before big names like Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester City – Arsenal (Wednesday June 17, 9.15 p.m.)

Manchester City, the ruling championship and one of the greatest teams in modern football, couldn’t make a fist against Liverpool this season. It has to content itself with a second place, with Liverpool too far out of reach. The Citizens currently have 57 points, 4 more than third-placed Leicester. While it’s of no use to look at runaway leader Liverpool, Manchester City still has its reputation to defend.

Up against the mighty Mancunians, we find Arsenal struggling to find steadier footing in a turbulent season. The Gunners are stuck in a relatively underwhelming ninth place for the moment, and could use a victory to boost morale, more so than their opponents this Wednesday evening. Depending on the performances of others, Arsenal might hop on over to a more agreeable sixth place, should it win here…

Tottenham Hotspur – Manchester United (Friday June 19, 9.15 p.m.)

Another epic battle right at the front of the return of England’s first football division is that between London’s Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United on Friday. Tottenham Hotspur is not having its greatest season ever: with 41 points, it’s currently trailing 4 points behind the teams that are, at the moment, in places that qualify for European football. Can the Spurs make steps forward here?

Manchester United is better off, after encountering some stormy weather in past years. The Red Devils find themselves in a fifth place that should see them into the Europa League, if they can hold on to it. A more important ambition would obviously be a victory in this game against a tough contender for a similar spot. Whatever the outcome, this matchup will be worth the while for fans and bettors alike!
