While wagering on soccer presents multiple options for savvy bettors, recreational bettors like me just want to know who is going to win easily or who might spring the upset.
With that square knowledge in mind, we look at some soccer betting trends for July 1 in the EPL and a lookahead to the opening off the MLS season a week later. Two new expansion sides will begin creating their own streaks and wagering patterns we can follow here on BettingTrends.com.
Norwich @ Arsenal – EPL betting report
There is one thing that Norwich doesn’t do very often on the road – win.
In 18 recent road matches, they have won once and drawn just three times for a 1-14-3 mark. Arsenal usually takes care of business at home, losing just 8 times here over 66 matches.
Leicester @ Everton – EPL betting report
Everton is typically a safe UNDER play at home. The UNDER has prevailed in 15 of 21 recent matches at Goodison Park. Meanwhile Leicester is on a league run of 5-1 favoring the UNDER. For Everton backers, the Blues have not lost the past eight times as favorites (6-0-2).
Chelsea @ West Ham – EPL Betting report
Chelsea is a huge favorite here and for good reason. West Ham is fighting relegation and has been a disaster, but has battled to seven draws in their past 10 matches. Chelsea also has nine draws on the season so there is some upset value potentially here on the draw line.
MLS season resumes July 8
Barring unforeseen Covid 19 circumstances or other issues, the MLS season will resume July 8 with the league’s new 26-team lineup.
Defending champion Seattle hosts San Jose Earthquakes as big favorites on July 10. Seattle has lost just three times in 32 recent home games according to the betting trends report.
