Premier League Betting – Streaks and Sequences – January 4th, 5th and 6th, 2012
A statistical look at the teams in and out of form3rd February 2012 / Lee A Jackson
We are going to assess some of the strongest Premier League Streaks and Sequences ahead of this weekend’s betting fixtures. This is always a good place to look, because it really paints a picture of the current form and status of teams. Form pretty much counts for everything (not totally everything, because we always like to use a bit of fixture history to back up our betting) but looking for football streaks and sequences can help you pull out that big winning bet. Here we analyze who in the Premier League is doing the best and doing the worst in terms of runs of form ahead of your weekend’s football betting. This should help you with some pointers as you scan your football coupons.
Premier League Fixtures Analyzed
Arsenal v Blackburn, Norwich v Bolton, QPR v Wolves, Stoke v Sunderland, West Brom v Swansea, Wigan v Everton, Man City v Fulham, Newcastle v Aston Villa, Chelsea v Man Utd, Liverpool v Tottenham
Longest Run of Consecutive Matches Without Defeat?
Andre Villas Boas may be under pressure, but Chelsea are leading the Premier League table at the moment for consecutive matches without defeat. They have not lost a game in four matches now, a Premier League best in current form. So does that give them a good standing for their big clash against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge of Sunday? It could suggest a battling point for the Blues at the very least. Other teams showing resiliency at the moment are Man Utd, Aston Villa and Everton, all of which haven’t lost for three matches.
Longest Run of Consecutive Matches Without a Win?
There are clear signs of trouble for a couple teams as we look at this stat. Wigan Athletic are struggling in this category, as they haven’t won a match in their last eight Premier League starts now. However, they aren’t the worst team at the moment. That unwanted honour falls to Mick McCarthy’s Wolves, who have not won a league match in nine attempts now. Wolves are away at QPR this weekend, while Wigan host Everton, who are in decent form as mentioned above.
Longest Run of Consecutive Matches Won?
That is Manchester United, who need good form to take to Stamford Bridge. The Red Devils have had their issues with the back line this season, but they keep on going and are currently on a league best run of three consecutive wins.
Longest Run of Consecutive Matches Lost?
Poor Old Wigan lead the way in this stat. The Latics have lost four consecutive league matches now and are rooted to the bottom of the table.
Most Unlikely To Draw?
Well that will be Manchester United on their trip to Stamford Bridge this weekend. The Red Devils really don’t rattle out many drawn matches, and they are on a current streak of ten Premier League matches without a draw. They have a tough match at Stamford Bridge on Sunday though, a ground at which they haven’t won in the league for almost a decade.
Longest Home Sequence Without Defeat?
Out of the home teams for this round of fixtures, it is Liverpool who are the best home side. Kenny Dalglish’s men haven’t lost a league match at Anfield for eleven games now. That is an unbeaten run all season there, and they could have a tough time defending that record against the high flying Tottenham who visit on Sunday night.
Longest Away Sequence Without Defeat?
Out of the home teams for this round of fixtures, Aston Villa could be worth a look as they make the short journey across the West Midlands to face West Bromwich Albion. Villa are doing alright away from home, not having tasted defeat outside of Villa Park for five matches league matches now.
Most Likely To Keep A Clean Sheet?
Manchester United have kept the League best twelve clean sheets this season.
Most Likely To Not Score?
Swansea have failed to find the back of the net in ten of their Premier League matches this season.
