Essential Premier League Statistics for Sports Bettors

Spurs v Manchester City, 14.05.24

The English Premier League statistics are an essential tool for football bettors looking to gain a competitive advantage over the sportsbooks with informed bets. Fortunately, there's an overwhelming amount of EPL data available online, which can help you analyze and accurately predict different league games every season. Here are seven essential Premier League statistics to help bettors cut through the noise and make informed bets.

1. The most common EPL final score is 2-1

Most Premier League games in the 2023/2024 season ended with a 2-1 scoreline in favor of the home team. In fact, about 10% of the season's league games ended with a 2-1 scoreline unlike in the 2022/2023 season where 1-0 was the most common scoreline.

2. 0-0 is the most common EPL half-time score

For Premier League fans who like to bet on the half-time betting market at Betway, 0-0 was the most successful outcome for the 2023/2024 season. Over 30% of the league matches recorded a 0-0 stalemate at half-time, which was a slight increase from the 26% reported in the 2022/2023 season for this scoreline.

3. Home advantage impact: 48% winning rate

EPL statistics have proven that the support of the home cloud and the familiar environment plays a crucial role in who wins a game. For the 2023/2024 season, the home teams have won 48% of games. The home crowd's influence on match results is also clear when you look at EPL stats from the last five seasons.

Betting on the red and yellow cards is becoming quite popular among EPL bettors at the Betway sportsbook. In the 2023/2024 season, there was a huge rise in the number of cards issued in the premier league matches.

The league averaged around 4.91 cards per game, which is an increase from the 3.69 cards averaged per game in the 2023/2024 season. Sheffield United and Chelsea emerged among the top-ranking teams in picking yellow cards, with each averaging 3.05 per match, while Tottenham and Liverpool rank highly for red cards.

5. Average goals per match (3.11)

The average number of scores recorded in EPL matches has increased consistently in the last five years, hitting new heights in the 2023/2024 season where teams averaged 3.11 goals per match. It's common to see EPL teams breaking the 1,000-goal barrier during a season, with this milestone achieved in the last eight campaigns.

6. Both teams to score (60%)

If you like betting on the BTTS market, you will need to remain updated with the latest EPL statistics on the market. During the 2023/2024 Premier League season, both sides hit this market in 60% of the games played. That was an increase from the previous season where both sides scored goals for 52% of the games.

7. EPL top scorer stats

Erling Haaland won the EPL Golden Boot award despite missing a great deal of time during the 2023/2024 season. The Norway striker missed a significant part of the season due to an ankle injury, increasing his list of competitors as the campaign went deep. However, Haaland managed to master a comeback to end the season with 27 goals, with Cole Palmer ranking as the runner up with 22 goals.
