If betting on football happens to be one of your passions, then you’ll surely know that one of the biggest online football betting events is the English Premier League. This is the top division of English football, where all the best clubs in the country play.
Other than being the most prestigious league in England, it’s also one of the most popular domestic leagues and tournaments in the world. Thanks to this popularity, we’re able to offer our UK bettors with a rather wide range of markets on the Premier League.

The Premier League occurs every year running from August through to May of the following year. However, this year’s edition was delayed due to the pandemic. Thus, the league started on 12 September 2020, and is set to finish on 23 May 2021.
The league involves the topmost 20 clubs in the UK playing against each other to decide who emerges victorious. The actual setup of the tournament is a round-robin format, where each club will play all the others twice.
Thus, the matches will be played once at the home stadium of a particular club, and another time away, or at the home stadium of the opposing club. Depending on the position they finish in, they will receive a number of points (or none at all).
Winners receive 3 points, losers receive none, whilst teams that draw receive a point each. Naturally, the club with the most points will finish first and pick up the title. However, the points are important for another reason.
The Premier League also has a promotion and relegation system, where the 3 clubs that finish last are relegated to the EFL Championship, the second division of English football. These are then replaced by the top 3 clubs of the Championship.
You can play a bet on any of the clubs that participate in the Premier League, each with their different, associated odds. The odds are calculated according to the strength of the club in the particular match they’re playing. Below, you can find a table of all the clubs that are currently participating in the league, alongside their current rank and their stadium:
|1||Manchester City||Etihad Stadium|
|2||Leicester City||King Power Stadium|
|3||Manchester United||Old Trafford|
|6||Tottenham Hotspur||Tottenham Hotspur Stadium|
|7||West Ham United||London Stadium|
|10||Aston Villa||Villa Park|
|11||Leeds United||Elland Road|
|12||Crystal Palace||Selhurst Park|
|13||Southampton||St. Mary’s Stadium|

Unlike other events, the Premier League does not have one sole venue hosting the event. Instead, the league is simply held within the United Kingdom as a whole. This way, all of the clubs that are part of the league will host a number of games at home.
Each club is given the chance to play at home, as there is a significant home advantage. By offering the round-robin format, it balances all of this out making the event last longer and also making it much more exhilarating.
Odds are the most important numbers when it comes to betting, as they tell you the likelihood of the occurrence of an event. In addition to that, they show you how much you stand to gain if your bet on that event actually wins.
Odds can be represented in either of 3 ways: fractional, decimal, and American. The only differences between these is how they represent the odds and where in the world they happen to be used the most; otherwise, they’re pretty much interchangeable.
Bookmakers in the UK and Ireland generally use fractional odds, which are represented through fractions like 1/4 and 9/4. From the examples, 1/4 is an example of low odds, whilst 9/4 is an example of high odds.
On the other hand, decimal odds are used by bookmakers in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. This format uses decimal numbers to represent the odds, such as 1.5 and 4.25. These odds are considered fairly intuitive to understand.
Premier League tips are suggestions on who to bet on in the league. These are given out by tipsters, sport-experts that spend a lot of time analysing previous performances, and other such factors to help them make predictions of who’ll win in a match.
After coming to their conclusions, tipsters will post their tips and predictions online. You may find that these tips are available either for free or at a price. Whilst there are plenty of tipsters out, it’s wise to also do your own research before placing a bet.
A simple Google search will show you plenty of tips, predictions, sports news, etc., which you can use on your sports-betting journey. The best tips we can provide you with is not to wager more than you can afford and to remember to have fun!

Generally, seasons run from August to May of the following year, which makes them last for about 9 months. During these months, each club plays 38 matches.
Currently, the club that has claimed the Premier League title the most times is Manchester United, with a total of 13 wins under its belt.
Whilst the Premier League is subject to the rules of football as set by the ruling bodies of football (including FIFA, UEFA, the FA, and the Premier League itself), the league is privately and collectively owned by the clubs that constitute the league.
For quite some time, there were a small handful of teams that absolutely dominated the league. These were the so-called Big Four: Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool. In recent years, however, the domination has widened a little, making space for Manchester City and Leicester City to place their names in the hat as major contenders for the top spot.
