Betting on English Premier League Football
The English Premier League, formed out of the old English Division 1 back in 1992, lays claim to being the most-watched football league anywhere in the world, and it's not hard to see why. With grand old names such as Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea drawing support from all over the globe, viewing figures and betting numbers dwarf those from other leagues year on year.
A 20-team division, each club plays the other nineteen on a home-and-away round-robin basis – it's a simple formula which has worked wonders for those who market the product worldwide. As well as closely-fought title races and battles for the European places that the top six positions usually bring, the Premier League is often also characterised by its titanic struggles at the bottom of the league, with the last three teams being relegated to the Championship. Similarly, three clubs are promoted, and it's notable that the playoff final, which decides the third team to get promoted to the Premier League is touted as the game with the richest prize in club football, such is the value of a place in the English Premier League.
With games mostly played on a 3pm (GMT) on a Saturday afternoon, plus 7.45pm (GMT) on a Tuesday and Wednesday, as well as a game on a Monday and occasionally Friday night, accumulator bets covering the full week are a staple of Premier League betting, and Premier League match odds can be found emblazoned over TV commercials and websites. Betting on the English Premier League, like the league itself, is big business.

The fixture list above will constantly provide you with the best Premier League odds available for all fixtures, throughout the season. Our Odds Checker system is constantly scanning and comparing odds so you don't have to. This can be used as your very own English Premier League accumulator builder where you can find higher returns on the same bets, making you better off. Building the acca is simple, just go through the selections by tapping on them and your acca will build in the betslip, with instant odds comparison.
The English Premier League is famous for its passionate support and fast-paced, all-action style of football, and five minutes of viewing time will show you exactly why. Unsurprisingly, the division produces plenty of goals, with the 2018/19 season producing slightly above the global average when it comes to goals – 2.89 per game with 54% of matches featuring three or more goals, which is more in line with other leagues. In fact, looking back over averages from the 2016/17 and 2018/19 seasons, these averages stack up. The percentage of matches ending in draws tends to be in line with the global average, as does the average number of points earned by teams playing at home. So where should you go with your Premier League betting?
The trick is to look at the averages of particular teams rather than the division itself. In the 2018/19 season, champions Manchester City saw an average of 3.11 goals per game, while runners-up Liverpool experienced 2.84 goals per game.
So as can be seen from these examples, taken as a mini-group, the perennial 'top 6' clubs of Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur take those goal numbers into higher levels, especially when playing teams further down the table. Always factor in who is playing who when looking at the goals market and the Premier League odds.
EPL Title Odds for 2019-20
The 2019/20 Premier League season promises to be another example of fierce competition and closely fought championship and relegation races, displayed in the Premier League title odds. Defending champions Manchester City start the season as favourites to hold on to their title, while their closest challengers from 2018/19, and the current Champions League holders, Liverpool, are second favourites according to the current Premier League title odds. At the seasons start, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Arsenal all follow at longer odds, so the bookmakers see it as a tussle between the same teams which took the division by storm in 2018/19.
Aside from Premier League title 19/20 odds, the top goalscorer markets are hugely popular and attract a lot of investment. The 'Golden Boot' is often a closely fought affair, never more so than in 2018/19 when no fewer than three players – Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Liverpool's Sadio Mané and Mo Salah – shared the award. For the 2019/20 season you can probably throw the likes of Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Tottenham's Harry Kane into the mix too.
Premier League relegation odds usually stack up against the newly-promoted teams, given the gulf in finances available to the established Premier League teams and those who are irregular visitors to the division. Just a couple of seasons spent in the Premier League can see teams start to spend the money more than 99.9% of global football clubs could dream of, and leads to a number of international stars joining the league on eye-watering wages. Good for the competition, although it can make betting a challenging process due to the competitive nature of the league when the big teams are out of the equation.
Premier League Football History
Since 1992, the English Premier League has been growing ever more powerful in terms of the money it generates and the influence it casts over global football. For many years, under the leadership of the legendary Alex Ferguson, Manchester United dominated all who lay before them – only the brief challenge of Arsène Wenger's Arsenal challenged the monopoly of the team from the red half of Manchester. Premier league winners odds at the start of every season placed the Red Devils as firm favourites.
The next challenge came from Jose Mourinho's Chelsea, backed by the wealth of their Russian benefactor. Then came Abu Dhabi supported Manchester City, who are the current force in the division. The only other teams to claim the title in the competition's 27-year history are Blackburn, who were fired to the title by Alan Shearer's goals back in 1995, and Leicester City, who claimed perhaps the most unlikely of title victories in European football by romping to the title in 2015/16. The Foxes began the season at betting odds of as high as 500/1 to win the title. Looking at the 2019/20 Premier League title odds, no team is anywhere that long to win the title – it seems the bookmakers have learnt their lesson on that one miraculously achievement.
With some of the biggest names in global football earning their living in the English Premier League, it's no surprise that Premier League betting odds, as well as the matches themselves, adorn the television and computer screens of countries around the world.

ENGLISH FOOTBALL HISTORY
The English have a long and romantic history with football. The game's first-ever rules were crafted in England in 1857 in Sheffield by a couple of guys called William Prest and Nathanial Creswick. These two blokes had no idea that their rules would lay the foundation for the worlds most watched and played sport today.
And no other country in the world had embraced football culture like the British, which is home to 40,000 clubs recognised by the England FA (Football Association) – Brazil is in second with 29,000. England is home to the worlds first football club too, Sheffield FC, the world's oldest Footballing body in the English FA and the worlds oldest knockout tournament, the FA Cup.
England's prestigious footballing history has made it the force that it is today. The Premier League is beloved by billions but so too is the second tier, the Championship.

The Betting Markets we cover
Our service offers odds comparisons on all of the major, popular football betting markets, so you are far from limited to the 1X2 market which is often unprofitable in any case due to the small odds offered by bookmakers on the bigger teams.
These are just some examples of the markets covered by our bet finder and comparison tool:
Match Result – This is the most popular, straightforward bet. It is a simple bet on which team will win the match, or whether it will be a draw after 90 minutes. This is also broken down into match result 1st half and 2nd half, allowing you to bet on a specific half. The full-time 90minutes 1X2 is the 'typical' market you'll see on most punters accumulators.
Both teams to score (BTTS) – This is one of the all-time favourites of regular bettors as it is an outcome that can be studied according to form and statistics. Quite simply the outcome will be 'yes' or 'no'. 'Yes' means that you believe both teams will score in the match, while 'no' means that you believe one, or perhaps both teams will fail to register. This can also be broken down into BTTS first half and BTTS second half.
Total Goals 'Over / Under' – This is another old favourite, and another bet which can be placed more confidently with the study of form and statistics. As it sounds, you are betting on the match featuring over or under a certain number of goals in the match. The options are usually provided as 0.5, 1.5, 2.5 etc so that there is always an outcome, and you may select over or under that number. These options also exist as first half and second half options. A classic example would be including an over 2.5 selection in your accumulator or single bet, this you would win if three or more goals are scored in the match.
Handicap markets (plus Asian handicap) – The handicap markets are popular when you feel that one team has a distinct advantage, as is so often the case in football. Let's use the example of Manchester City vs Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium. Clearly these two teams do not have the same levels of resources, and Manchester City are heavy favourites to win the game. The odds could be as low as 1.10, meaning that if you bet £1, you would only win 10p. One way of making the selection yield higher potential returns is to give one side a handicap. So, for example, you could back Manchester City -2, meaning that the home team would need to win by three clear goals for you to win the bet. Similarly, you could bet Bournemouth +2, meaning that if the away team loses by a solitary goal, then you win. The Asian handicap market is similar, but takes out the equation of the draw, so is a little more complicated to understand.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the types of bets that our odds comparison tool offer. Betting on football entails so many options these days and it is imperative for us to provide coverage of as many of these types of bets as possible. Once again we list the best odds to be found on each outcome, with the very best odds highlighted and starred.
Football Odds Comparison
As well as the ability to consistently find the best odds on an incredibly comprehensive array of football matches around the world, we also provide a host of other information which is informative to your betting. Let us consider exactly what you see when you click on any given event. As an example, we can use a classic English Premier League match between Liverpool and Chelsea.
First of all, you have the ability to search for the event itself by using our bet finder tool. This bet finder operates as a search engine, so simply type in the name of one of the teams that you are looking for and a list of that team's upcoming matches will be presented to you. Type in either Liverpool or Chelsea in this case and the event, as long as it is in the near future, will be immediately revealed for you to click upon.
When opening up the event, you will immediately be presented with a list of all the outcomes upon which you can bet on – we are far more than just a provider of football odds comparison on the simple home/draw/away markets, as previously stated. You may bet on goals, handicaps, and any other number of betting outcomes that take you fancy.
We automatically display the best odds on each overview page, but this can be analysed deeper either once a selection is added to the bet slip or each match page.
Football Betting & Statistics
We are not just the best odds comparison site for these reasons, there's far more. When looking at the event of your choice, you will also be presented with a number of additional insightful statistics and information which can help to inform your betting selection.
Using Liverpool vs Chelsea once again as an example, under the list of all the markets (and odds) that you can bet on, you will then see statistics pertaining to the teams' last ten games across all competitions (the results of those last ten games are also presented for your convenience).
What sort of statistics will you find? For example, you will be given the teams' win percentage over those ten matches, the average number of goals which were scored in those games, and then stats relating to all of the major betting markets, such as Both Teams To Score (for example, in how many of those ten matches did both teams scores – given as a percentage), Over 2.5 goals (in how many of those ten matches were over 2.5 goals scored in the match) and so on. Clearly, we provide these stats – on both teams – to give you the most comprehensive sports betting experience and give you the greatest prospect of success in your online betting activities.
What else will you find? We give you head-to-head records encompassing the last three matches (anything beyond that would not be particularly relevant to the outcome) as well as team news and predicted line-ups. Of course, the odds reflect all of this information, but if you see that a team's odds are too good to be true, then you read the team news that we provide and see the predicted line-up, then you can reconcile with those odds. Best odds are not just the highest odds, but the odds that give the fairest reflection of an event occurring. With all of the information we provide, along with our odds comparison and bet finder tools, you can make the most informed decisions.
The Best Football Acca Builder
Our site is the perfect accompaniment to build your football acca bets. It is bad enough to find that a winning single bet you made with one bookie could have been better rewarded if you had placed with another bookmaker. The situation is much worse if you placed a five-team accumulator, and then discovered that another bookmaker could have almost doubled your return on the same bet.
The fact is that betting odds on single events can and do vary between bookmakers, sometimes to quite a large extent. But when you are building a football accumulator bet, and differences between the odds in single bets become exacerbated when you start adding your selections together. That is why shopping around and using our odds comparison tool is the smart thing to do when placing bets, but particularly accas.
We built this site with accas in mind. We don't think you can build an acca faster, anywhere else in the world.
We also provide Football Live Scores
Alongside our football odds comparison and statistics we also provide you with up-to-date scorelines in any ongoing matches, so we can be your first point of call for live scores. Our aim is to become your 'go to' site for all things football related in terms of upcoming matches to bet on, statistical betting information which you can use to inform your bet, team news, and then a place to keep abreast of events once the match kicks off.
