Premier League Betting Odds – Popular Markets
The key betting markets in the premier league are for things like relegation, where you can bet on the three teams most likely to face the drop at the end of the season.
You can, of course, bet on the outright winner of the premier league, as well as the top goalscorer. Last season it was of course, Mo Salah for Liverpool, who hit a whopping 32 goals. It will be interesting to see what happens this season.
There are other markets such as betting who will stay up, who will finish in the top half of the league, the bottom half, top 4 finish, top 4 exact order, and many others. This is in addition to the various bets available in individual games, and spread betting across individual football fixture days.
How Does The Premier League Work?
The Premier League is an English football competition that runs from August to May each year. It includes twenty teams from England and Wales, that each play 38 games in total, to decide the winner of the competition. Each team plays their opponents at the home ground and then at the opponent’s ‘away’ ground.
The teams are awarded three points for each win, one point for a draw, and no points for a loss. The winner is the team that has accumulated the most points over the course of this 38 game season. Other factors help to decide which is the team which is placed higher, if points are equal, such as goal difference.
Each year the top 4 teams in the league qualify for the UEFA Champion’s League, and teams five and six qualify for the Europa League.
At the other end of the table, the three lowest scoring teams are relegated to what is now the Championship, and three teams are promoted from that league.
The English Premier League began life in 1992, as a successor to the old Football League’s First Division. The former division has been around for more than a century (since 1888), and the replacement was the result of a highly lucrative television with Rupert Murdoch’s BSkyB (now Sky TV) to broadcast the games for satellite subscribers.
It ushered in a new era of sporting entertainment in the UK, with players being payed much larger salaries, and the sport moving from a working class, male audience, to more of a middle class and family audience, to draw in advertisers.
The early days of the league saw the emergence of Manchester United as a hugely successful team, both on and off the pitch. By the 2000s, Arsenal dominated for a brief period, before Chelsea succeeded under the ownership of Russian owner Roman Abramovitch. In recent years, Manchester City have been the most successful team in the league, under the stewardship of Sheikh Mansour and the Abu Dhabi group.
