- The Premier League will return to action on June 17.
- Arsenal (+700) will take on Manchester City (-275).
- Aston Villa (+185) will face off against Sheffield United (+135).
LONDON – Premier League football is finally set to return after a three-month shutdown with the first matchday scheduled for Wednesday, June 17th.
The remaining 92 games of England’s top flight of football will be played in full and take place without any fans in attendance.
The action will resume with two matches on June 17, pitting Arsenal against Manchester City, and Aston Villa against Sheffield United.
Premier League bettors can rejoice as full odds for the first matches in months are now available to bet on.
- Manchester City -275
- Arsenal +700
- Draw +400
Immediately the Arsenal line stands out at +700 to sneak out a victory on the road.
While this would be a risky bet for the struggling gunners to get a win at Man City, these teams haven’t played in months and anything is possible. Add in the fact that no fans will be in attendance, and you effectively eliminate all home field advantage.
Arsenal +700 is simply too huge to ignore.
Arsenal Manchester City Over-Under:
- Over 3.5 +115
- Under 3.5 -135
Besides that, take a look at the over/under trends as the league returns to play.
Depending on how teams have been able to train, there might be a stark lack of defensive consistency, leading to more goals by all.
The over is worth investigating for all of these early games.
Also on the matchday, Aston Villa will battle against Sheffield United.
- Aston Villa +185
- Sheffield United +135
- Draw +240
Hopefully, the league will go the way of the German Bundesliga, which has seen a successful return to play without any major hiccups so far.
Regardless, this is a major step in the right direction for sports fans and legal sports bettors worldwide as we work towards resuming the natural order of sports.
