3 early-season Premier League bets to ride to the bank


1) Over 2.5 goals in Chelsea games

The Blues have found their vigour again and two consecutive clean sheets will certainly help Jose Mourinho sleep easier, but those two shut-outs came against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Champions League and a nine-man Arsenal.

So far in the top-flight that London derby success remains the only outing in which the total goal line has fallen shy of 2.5, and with hapless Newcastle next up for the Stamford Bridge side, that stat doesn’t look like changing any time soon.

Ladbrokes offer 8/11 that the match sees three or more goals scored at St James’ Park.

2) Under 2.5 goals in Arsenal and Tottenham games

North London’s footballing armies have witnessed few goals through their six respective Premier League games, with Arsenal and Tottenham both sharing equally tight records when it comes to total match strikes.

The arch rivals have seen five of their outings fall short of the 2.5-goal line, with Spurs discovering the ability to defend for the first time in Premier League history and Arsenal realising what it’s like to have a fruitless winger lead their forward line.


Walcott has two goals in seven games this season


It’s evens that Spurs’ Man City clash falls short of 2.5 total goals and 6/5 that the same outcome bestows Arsenal’s clash with Leicester.

3) Both teams to score in Leicester games

Speaking of the Foxes, Claudio Ranieri’s early life in charge at the King Power Stadium has caught the attention for many reasons, but a betting trend isn’t likely to have been one of them.

Among the lofty league position, the comebacks from 2-0 down and the fast-food rewards for clean sheets, Leicester have been the Premier League’s most reliable Both Teams To Score selection.

All six of their games have ticked that particular box so far and 4/7 is available to snap up that the trend rolls on against the Gunners.
