The English Premier League, or EPL, is one of the most globally-competitive soccer leagues. It was formed from the old first-division tournament in 1992, and, since then, we’ve experienced exciting, end-to-end EPL matches each season.
The tournament consists of 20 English teams, with the top four automatically qualifying for the Champions League. The fifth- and sixth-place teams qualify for the Europa League. In contrast, the seventh-placed team goes to the UEFA Conference League.
The bottom three teams get relegated to lower competition at the end of the season. There’s a lot to fight for throughout the regular season, so it’s a perfect choice for goal-spread betting.
The Premier League has seen the top six teams dominate the top half for a long time. Teams like Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, and Tottenham have always been the favorites.
Usually, the other 14 teams battle for the mid-table and safety positions, so avoiding relegation is their focus. It’s a factor whenever the sportsbooks set the goal-spread line. It’s very rare to see a top-six team as a wagering underdog against another club in the league.
However, when teams go through rough patches and losing streaks, it may cause a change in order. Hence, understanding how the teams perform every match week can help see why a particular spread was given.
