Understanding EPL Matchups & Fixtures

In the English Premier League, each team plays 38 games with a home and away fixture versus every other team. That means there are 380 EPL matchups to bet upon each season.

Similar to other sports, the three most common betting lines in soccer are goal lines, which are the equivalent of point spreads, moneylines and totals. Soccer differs from most other sports because its matches can -and sometimes will- end in draws. Thus, three-way moneylines are offered.

Before betting on the English Premier League, it’s important to know that the home team is listed first in the sportsbook and the away team is listed second. Aside from considering home-field advantage, it’s also useful to research recent form, injuries/suspensions, and matchup history between the two teams.

While it’s good to know the Premier League head-to-head record of each EPL team in the matchup, other facets may provide some insight. Does one team cover the goal line more often than the other? Is there a trend in the number of goals scored in the fixture that makes betting on either the over or under more appealing?

If the teams have had a FA or League Cup matchup more recently than a league game, it could also be a good gauge of how they compare. However, if there is a lot of roster turnover from season to season, it may also be wise to take matchup history with a grain of salt. Check all the EPL matchups and fixtures here.
