With two of the four UCL berths for EPL teams taken, other teams are on the race to book their seats in Europe’s topflight club tournament. Learning how different bookmakers offer odds for teams can help bettors make informed decisions before betting online in the outright betting market.
Chelsea came from an impressive 6-0 win against Southampton to remain in third place, making them five and eight points clear over Tottenham and Arsenal.
However, it is too early for Thomas Tuchel and company to celebrate.
To earn a UCL ticket, the Blues must attain good results in their last eight matches, especially in key fixtures. Crucial games include fellow UCL seekers Arsenal, West Ham United, Manchester United, and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
As of writing, Tottenham is up by three points from fifth placer Arsenal and is on a four-game winning streak. With momentum on their side, the Spurs must take advantage of their favourable schedule to bring Antonio Conte to UCL next season.
The North Londoners will end their season facing relegation-bound teams Burnley and Norwich City. But before that, Tottenham must perform well against Liverpool (May 8) and Arsenal (May 13) to boost their UCL chances.
Arsenal lost back-to-back games versus Crystal Palace and Brighton, allowing Tottenham to stay fourth. The Gunners blew these big chances to gain points before facing upper table teams.
Challenging assignments await Mikel Arteta as Arsenal needs to overcome Chelsea, Manchester United, West Ham United, and Tottenham and proceed to UCL.
West Ham United
It will not be easy for West Ham United to qualify in their first-ever UCL through the EPL.
At sixth place currently, the David Moyes-mentored squad is in a must-win situation versus difficult oppositions in Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester City to join Europe’s best-of-the-best teams.
A UCL stint is within their touch if they deliver in the last six matches but not without Arsenal and Tottenham dropping points.
Like West Ham United, Man U has slim chances of making it to the top four. A draw against Leicester City and defeat over Everton kept them stuck in seventh.
The Red Devils must score seven straight wins to keep their UCL dream alive in as many games. Yet, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool will not go easy with them.
Researching about these teams is crucial before betting on Singapore Pools’ sports. Besides checking the latest odds, research helps bettors increase their winning chances in EPL betting markets.
