The English top-flight is like the NFL was in the middle of the 2015 regular season. Hectic Premier League Results keep on upsetting bettors week by week.
Alright, you could see Arsenal beating Leicester coming, but with a winning goal that late in the game and from Daniel Welbeck? Weird. Okay, it’s not that crazy like Kolo Touré scoring in an EPL game or Tottenham defeating Man City at Etihad, since this Sunday was full of surprises. However, many players and experts of gambling facts lost money on these hectic Premier League results.

Mentioning Kolo Touré, this match against a rubbish Aston Villa side was vital for Liverpool. Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho, Divock Origi just came back from injuries and Jordan Henderson is also in the gathering speed phase of his game. This means that the Reds line-up did not have to feature the likes of Jordon Ibe or Adam Lallana, resulting a more fluid, and most importantly, more fruitful attacking game. But this was virtually against a Championship side, so you might not want to draw too many conclusions from this.
Manchester City slipping at home, again, is a blow to their campaign. They are still close, but could have moved within three points from Leicester and overtake Tottenham. Instead they remained fourth and Spurs second. There are still 12 games to go and Leicester have no European football in their schedule. However, as things are now, it seems that Arsenal are the favourites of this year’s championship. They have the best odds at Betway Sportsbook, available for 2.63 (13/8). Tottenham are second favourites, selling for 3.50 (5/2). Leicester goes for 3.75 (11/4), however, hectic Premier League results and sports scores can still alter this picture in the following weeks.

Manchester United going down at Sunderland virtually ended their campaign. They have too many things to sort out, including the position of their manager, plus Europa League football in their schedule, which is a huge distraction. The Red Devils might start to concentrate on Europa League however, as with some more hectic Premier League results, it will be easier for them to qualify to the Champions League by winning that competition than coming fourth in the English top-flight…
