Premier League Mid-Season Betting Strategies
The 2023 Premier League season is well underway and bettors are looking for the best strategies to win with conservative betting.
One of the most successful strategies is to bet on the “double chance” 1X when an outsider plays against a favorite at home. This strategy has proven successful in the past, as it gives bettors two chances to win, either by backing the underdog or if the match ends in a draw. Another popular strategy is to bet on Premier League top 4 odds, which can be done by picking one side to finish in the Top 4 or by placing multiple bets on different teams.
Another way to find value in mid-season wagering is to use a Sports Betting Exchange like Gambyl rather than a traditional Sportsbook. Traditional sportsbooks make money when you lose a wager, sports exchanges like Gambyl only keep a small commission on winning bets, if you lose at least other punters are seeing the winnings instead of some shadowy offshore bookmaker.
Finally, it’s important to keep your options open and take advantage of any edge you may find when betting on single games, parlays, props and futures. By following these strategies and keeping an eye out for value bets, you can increase your chances of success when betting on the English Premier League this season.
