Premier League Matchweek 19 Review – Betting Trends 

In this section of our Premier League Matchweek 19 review, we take a closer look at all the key stats and trends in the EPL. If you’re serious about taking your EPL betting to the next level, we’ve got you covered. 

Not only do we cover basic trends like winning streaks and losing runs, but we also dive into advanced stats such as over/under goals and both teams to score. On top of that, we highlight all the top player stats. 

Which team is enjoying a 12-game unbeaten streak? Which side ended a seven-game winless run on Boxing Day? Who has the most goals, assists, and clean sheets? We answer those questions and more below. 

Basic EPL Betting Trends 

Thanks to a run of 12 games without a loss, Liverpool sits two points clear of Arsenal at the summit of the standings. However, the Gunners will leapfrog Jurgen Klopp’s side if they defeat West Ham United at the Emirates. 

  • Liverpool remains the only team with just one defeat this season 
  • The Reds extended their unbeaten streak to 12 games on Boxing Day 
  • Sheff Utd and Burnley have each lost 14 of their 19 Premier League matches 
  • Bournemouth is now on a four-game winning streak 
  • Brentford has suffered four consecutive defeats 
  • Fulham has recorded three successive losses 
  • Forest ended a seven-game winless run on Boxing Day 

A gap is starting to emerge between the bottom two – Sheffield United and Burnley – and the clubs towards the lower reaches of the table. That said, the Tricky Trees gave themselves a big boost with an impressive victory over Newcastle. 

Premier League Goal Trends 

31 goals were scored across the eight clashes on Tuesday and Wednesday, producing an average of 3.9 goals per game. Perhaps a few goalkeepers and defenders enjoyed the festivities too much on Christmas Day! 

  • Seven of the eight games across Tuesday and Wednesday produced over 2.5 goals 
  • Five of those matches dished up over 3.5 goals, with three producing over 4.5 goals 
  • Bournemouth has now seen over 2.5 goals in 13 of their 18 league games this term 
  • Aston Villa has seen over 3.5 goals in 10 of their 19 league clashes this season 
  • Six of the eight games across Tuesday and Wednesday saw both teams score 
  • The BTTS bet has now landed in 15 of Wolves’ 19 Premier League matches this season 
  • Man City (43) has scored more Premier League goals than any other team this term 
  • Sheff Utd has the worst offensive record (15) and the worst defensive record (47) 
  • Liverpool (16) and Arsenal (16) boast the joint-best defensive record 

Believe it or not, five teams – Brighton, Wolves, Luton, Tottenham, and West Ham – have a BTTS ratio of 70% or higher this season. By contrast, Man Utd, Everton, and Fulham all possess a 37% BTTS ratio.
