The Premier League returns after the international break with a great line-up of games. Check out our EPL betting preview & the latest odds for Matchday 30.

First meets third in the Premier League as leaders Arsenal travel north to face reigning champions Manchester City on Sunday. 
Just one point separates the two sides heading into a game which will likely have a massive bearing on the outcome of the title race. 
Read on as we look at some of the best Premier League games for Matchday 30 to highlight the key betting angles to consider. 


  • City fancied to boost their title hopes.
  • Over 1.5 goals market worth chancing.
  • Top four market is intriguing.

City Look Good Value Against Arsenal

The clash between Man City and Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium could be pivotal in determining the destination of the title this season. 
Several football betting sites are offering odds of 10/11 on City to pick up three points and they look a good bet to get the job done. 
The Gunners have not won at City in the league since 2015 and their overall head-to-record against their title rivals has been poor in recent years. 

Over 1.5 Goals Market is Tempting

We have twice been one result short of hitting a tasty ten-fold bet in the over 1.5 goals market in recent weeks, with two 1-0 scorelines scuppering the wagers. 
Matchday 30 offers another opportunity to go to the well, with UK betting sites offering odds of around 9/2 on all ten matches having more than 1.5 goals. 
Given the infrequency of 0-0 and 1-0 results this season, punters may well be rewarded if they keep the faith this weekend. 

Man United Eyeing Top-Four Surge

Several new betting sites rate Manchester United as 11/2 shots to finish in the top four and a case can be made for viewing that price as good value. 
They are nine points behind Aston Villa with a game in hand and six adrift of Tottenham Hotspur having played the same number of matches. 
However, the Red Devils have an easier run-in than their rivals and are fancied to mount a late charge to qualify for the Champions League.
