FA Women’s Super League: Who to bet on amongst the top 3 teams and players to watch.
So far this season, the FA Women’s Super League has seen the domination of Arsenal which is on the top spot with 27 points and a goal difference of 35.
Such a stellar record implies that they have won 9 of the 10 games that they have played so far. This is similar to the domination by the men’s team of Paris Saint Germain in Ligue 1.
Manchester City stands at second place with three points less at 21 points and at third place we find Birmingham with 22 points. However, such rankings do not imply that the table will remain the same at the end of the season. In this article we advise you on which team to bet on out of the top 3 teams and their players to look out for.
Arsenal has been quite unforgiving and forceful this season. Their fast and dynamic football has been blowing the other teams away. It is without doubt that Vivianne Miedema has been a big factor for this. She struggled in the league and was not able to bring the adequate firepower last season. However, this has changed owing to Coach Joe Montemurro’s change in tactics. He is now using the Dutch striker as a poacher and this has allowed her to reach another level. So far, she has scored 14 goals for the league leaders.
Arsenal is highly likely to win the league and the odds are in their favour at 5/2. One can catch Miedema in action for her club and also check out the bet365 offers to bet on Arsenal and host of other teams.
2. Manchester City
Manchester City required a faultless performance in order to earn their 2-0 victory over Arsenal in their recent game. However, they still have to curb the misfiring that happens in front of the goal if they are to continue to win games. A promising prospect for Manchester City is Nikita Parris who is in the second position of the goal-scoring table behind Miedema. Parris was signed to the club in early 2016 and ever since she has become much more ruthless and will perhaps assist in reducing the rate of such misfiring.
Despite City still having a streak that is still unbeaten, it is still debatable as to whether they have matured enough. However, with players like Parris, it won’t be long enough before they do achieve the required maturity. Even though they are currently second in the league, the odds are at 2/1 to win the league.
Coach Marc Skinner’s ability and coaching acumen with the team has definitely shown results in Birmingham’s performances of late. However, he would not have been able to do so without two of his key players Rachel Williams and Ellen White. These two players create a significant impact in games, but they are not the only ones responsible for the successful campaign thus far. The game against Liverpool is proof that the rest of the team is efficient enough and can create a challenge even without the two, who were ruled out due to injuries.
A significant factor that has lead to Birmingham’s successful campaign so far is that they have a coach who knows how to assign every player to the correct position. This is a factor that sets them apart from the other teams, and leading the odds in their favour at 16/1.
