2017 - 2018 Premier League Betting

Title Challengers

The two Manchester clubs got off to the best possible start in justifying their pre-season status as the favourites with the bookies. City were 2-0 victors at Brighton but were made to fight for their victory by Chris Hughton's newly-promoted side. Despite dominating possession, City struggled to break the Seagulls down and had to wait until the 70th minute before finding the breakthrough thanks to Sergio Aguero. Their lead was doubled five minutes later thanks to a Lewis Dunk own-goal.

On Sunday, it was then United's turn and they turned on the style to beat West Ham 4-0. A brace from debutant Romelu Lukaku was added to by Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba as Mourinho's men made a flying start to the new season. Many had speculated as to whether the Red Devils could finally mount a title challenge for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement and if this game is anything to go by, they will be there or thereabouts come the end of the season. 

Chelsea got off to the worst possible start to the defence of their title as they suffered a shock 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley. Gary Cahill's straight red card after just 14 minutes meant the Blues' were always going to be up against it but they went 0-3 down before half-time. Chelsea fought back admirably after half-time to restore some respectability to the scoreline but the damage was done in that first 45 minutes as the Clarets held on for the victory. Despite the season still being in its very primative stages, there is the growing feeling of unrest around Stamford Bridge and things could get worse next up as they travel to face Spurs at Wembley. Last season's runners up won 2-0 away to Newcastle to get their season up and running with three points and despite a lack of new signings, they remain amongst the title favourites. 

The other two members of what's looking now to be like a 'Top Six' are Arsenal and Liverpool and both sides were involved in the first two games of the weekend. Arsenal kicked things off on Friday night with a pulsating 4-3 win over Leicester. Despite trailing 1-2 and then 2-3, the Gunners rallied to win late on thanks to goals from substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud. The Gunners had previously gone ahead after two minutes thanks to a debut goal from Alexandre Lacazette but Arsenal's defensive capabilities will lead to a number of questions being asked. That statement can also certainly apply to Liverpool who were held to a 3-3 draw by Watford. The Hornets twice went ahead but goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah looked set to see Liverpool start the season with a win. However some less than impressive defending from a set-piece once more cost Jurgen Klopp's side as Miguel Britos bundled home the equaliser in stoppage time. 

Relegation Candidates

Burnley and Huddersfield began the season as the two favourites for the drop but both got off to winning starts. We've already touched on Burnley's incredible victory at Stamford Bridge but newly promoted Huddersfield enjoyed a similarly excellent start as they won 3-0 away to Crystal Palace. The bookies still have the pair amongst the shortest price to go down but the duo have real cause for optimism as they bid to build upon successful opening weekend's.

Brighton were beaten by Manchester City as the odds on Chris Hughton's men going down shortened and fellow promoted side Newcastle also lost to Tottenham. Though it's difficult to make an assessment on both of these sides, given the calibre of opposition they were facing.

First manager to leave post

The changing nature of football in the last few years has meant that managers come and go with much more frequency and where we once lauded the Italians for their trigger happy approach to hiring and firing, English football has now gone down the same path. So who's leading the charge in the 2017-18 Premier League sack race?

Slaven Bilic is the new favourite in this market after his West Ham side were thumped 4-0 by Manchester United. Whilst Mourinho's men were good, the Hammers capitulated in the second half and there is also the factor that each of their next two games are away from home. With the World Athletics Championships being held at the London Stadium, West Ham are unable to play their home games there and this fixture quirk could work against Bilic. We know last season he came under sevre pressure and if he can't off to a good start then his position will come under further scrutiny. 

Another manager who now looks one to watch in this market is Antonio Conte. The Chelsea boss looks to have cut a frustrated figure all summer in relation to his club's transfer business and after defeat in the Community Shield and now on the opening day of the league season, it looks as though things could quickly unravel at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are without their talisman Eden Hazard due to injury for the time being and with a trip away to Spurs on the horizon, things could get worse just yet.

Rafael Benitez is also an early frontrunner and this one seems to stem from reports last season that he was unhappy with the club's hierarchy. This summer has seen frustrations resurface with reports suggesting the Spaniard is unhappy with the club's transfer activity. The club have so far made relatively modest improvements to their squad but it's believed that Benitez wants more. The relationship between the Newcastle boss and owner Mike Ashley is not seen to be particularly strong there is the danger that this could cause Benitez to walk away. 

Stoke's Mark Hughes is priced shorter than Benitez in places and the Welshman's side lost 1-0 at Everton on the opening day. After three straight 9th placed finishes, Stoke ended up 13th last season and they have a habit of making poor starts to their league campaigns. If that trend continues, the Stoke faithful could end up getting on their manager's back given the lack of progress during his time in charge.

OK! Betting on the winner of the Premier League has most seasons been a fairly easy choice with one team going into each season a clear favourite (mostly Manchester United). For a long while it was between them and Arsenal almost exlcusively though Blackburn got their hands on the trophy in 1995. Chelsea and Manchester City have benefitted from multi-million pound takeovers and have joined the ranks of the elite and in general the league is much harder to call these days. 

Leicester of course caused the mother of all shocks back in the 2015/16 season when they defied pre-season odds of 5,000/1 to claim the title!

Since the Premier League began online football betting has grown at an exponential rate. Punters can now use football free bets to wager on well over 100 markets for televised matches, with many markets being offered for In-Play betting. There are a number of bookies who offer this as a feature but one of the most popular is the In-Play Bet Offer from Bet365 which is highly sought after but only surfaces around once every two weeks. Betting for free on the Premier League is now an integral part of the online betting process.

What free Premier League bets are available?

Literally anything and everything to do with the Premier League, from who will win it, to who will get relegated, to who will finish in a Champions League spot. Traditional bets include the outrights of individual Premier League games, specific results and goalscorers in those games.

In recent years the popularity of the accumulator - betting on the outcome of more than one game - has risen and for a lot of fans choosing which teams to put into their acca each weekend has become part of the routine of Saturday morning. Due to its popularity some bookmakers now offer the chance to cash out an accumulator if all but one of the results are coming in or offer money back if one game lets you down.

There are also a range of special markets where you can bet for free on the Premier League; some depending on the outcome of games that weekend, some on the outcome of the season in its entirety. They include:

  • Top goalscorer
  • First goalscorer that weekend
  • Top London club
  • Top Midlands club
  • Top Northeast club
  • Top promoted team
  • PFA Player of the Year
  • PFA Young Player of the Year
  • Highest scoring team
  • Lowest scoring team
  • Manager of the Year
  • Top 6 finish
  • Top 10 finish

The Premier League is currently sponsored by Barclays leading some fans to abbreviate it to the BPL (Barclays Premier League), which of course is wrong and a heinous crime against football. Some prefer to call it the EPL (English Premier League) and this is also wrong and will soon result in a ban from all Premier League stadiums should you be heard to use it.

It consists of 20 of the best teams in England (and Wales, but for some reason not Scotland or Ireland) and sits on top of the English football pyramid, a system that stretches right down to the lower leagues meaning, in theory, any semi-professional team in the country can work their way up to the top. At the end of the season the bottom three teams are relegated to the league below known as the Championship and are replaced by three teams for that team (the winners, the second place team and one from the next four teams who take part in a playoff).

The season runs from August to May each year with each team playing 38 games (19 at home and 19 away) totalling 380 games a season. Traditionally games in England were always played on Saturdays at 3pm and while this is still mostly the case, the popularity of the Premier League (and the continued involvement of some teams in European competitions midweek) has meant more games each season are moved to non-traditional kick-off times like 5.30pm or midday on a Sunday. In fact almost half of the games played each season are no longer Saturday 3pm kick-off. In the 2013-14 season Tottenham didn’t play a home game on a Saturday at 3pm for the first three months of the season meaning fans had to bet for free on Premier League games at other times in the week.

The team who finishes first in the Premier League is crowned champions while the teams who finish second, third and fourth qualify for the Champions League - a yearly knockout competition for the best teams in Europe. The team who finishes fifth automatically qualifies for the Europa League - Europe’s other knockout competition, the little sister to the Champions League - and the teams who finish sixth and seventh could also possibly qualify for the Europa League depending on the winners and runners-up of England’s domestic cup competitions. (Winners of the FA Cup and League Cup also qualify for the Europa League unless they finish in a European qualification spot in the Premier League where their spot is given to the runners-up and then, if they don’t need it, the teams who finished sixth or seventh in the league).

The Premier League has not been around forever; in fact it was only formed in 1992 by the top 22 teams who were in England’s First Division at the time, as they decided to form a breakaway league and take advantage of a lucrative television rights deal with Sky Sports. By the end of the 2013-14 season that deal was worth £1billion a year with Sky and BT Sport and the Premier League also generates €2.2 billion per year in domestic and foreign television rights. Not technically allowed (or arguably fair) the breakaway has just been accepted now by English football clubs on account of it being so profitable for teams should they get promoted to the Premier League. The original English First Division had actually been running since 1888 making it one of the oldest leagues in the world. In 1995 the Premier League decided to cut the number of teams in it from 22 to 20 so four teams were sent down instead of three and only two were promoted from the division below. The unlucky team who lost out were Crystal Palace who finished fourth from bottom fairly comfortably; a position that would in any other season have seen them stay up. 

The Premier League is beamed into the homes of around 4.7 billion people around the world each season either via TV or now more popularly by the bigger bookies doing live streaming. That's covering 643 million homes, in 212 territories and to put that into perspective there are 7.1 billion people living on earth meaning more than half of them are potentially tuning in each week to watch games like Bournemouth vs West Brom.

The current teams are: AFC Bournemouth, Arsenal, Brighton, Burnley, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Everton, Huddersfield Town, Leicester City, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Newcastle, Southampton, Stoke City, Swansea City, Tottenham Hotspur, Watford, West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United.

Chelsea are the current reigning champions whilst Newcastle, Brighton and Huddersfield were promoted last season.

Who has previously won? 

Not that many teams. In fact only six teams have shared the title in the 24 years that the Premier League has been a thing: Manchester United (13), Chelsea (5), Arsenal (3), Manchester City (2) whilst Blackburn Rovers and Leicester City have won one title a piece.

A total of 46 clubs have played in the Premier League since its inception including six who have featured in every season: Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur. Some clubs (Portsmouth) have fallen down as low as League Two (the last professional league in England before non-league) since being relegated from the Premier League while one has even stopped existing (Wimbledon).

Some of the world’s greatest players have graced the Premier League and left a lasting impression including French striker Thierry Henry who scored 175 goals in 258 games for Arsenal and current Ballon d’Or holder Cristiano Ronaldo who scored 118 goals in 292 games for Manchester United and won PFA Player of the Year twice as well as featuring in Premier League Team of the Year four times.
