English Premier League FAQ
Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s take a moment to cover a quick FAQ for any bettors new to the EPL. For anyone who already knows the ropes, feel free to skip ahead to the next section.
When Does the Premier League Season Start and End?
The Premier League season usually starts in August and ends in May of the following year. In total, there are 38 rounds, with each team playing every other team twice throughout the season — once at home and once away.
The actual fixtures list for each season is usually released in June.
What Is the Format of the Premier League?
The Premier League currently consists of 20 teams that play each other twice during the season, once at home and once away. Teams earn 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and no points for a loss. At the end of the season, the team with the most points is declared the champion.
As for the teams that finish in the bottom positions, three are relegated to the EFL Championship, the second tier of English football. They are replaced by the top three teams from the Championship.
How Can I watch Premier League Matches?
As one of the most popular sporting leagues on the planet, Premier League matches are broadcast worldwide. In the UK, broadcasting rights are typically held by networks like Sky Sports, BT Sport, and Amazon Prime Video. In the United States, NBC holds the broadcasting rights.
Who Are the Most Successful Premier League Clubs?
Manchester United is far and away the most successful club in Premier League history, with 13 titles. Following them in a distant second is Manchester City with 7, closely followed by Chelsea (5) and Arsenal (3).
Premier League Betting Tips and Odds
Picking a Premier League winner is easy with our top EPL predictions. However, while we provide Premier League odds and predictions for every game, that doesn’t mean you should wildly spread your bets across every game. Instead, you should optimize by focussing on high-probability EPL predictions that match up with solid sportsbook odds.
The reality is some games are really too tight to call a winner reliably. And while we will always make a best-effort prediction based on the latest Premier League stats, you will notice that sometimes we hedge. For example, we might predict a game will end in either a 1-goal win or a draw. Your best bet, then, is to find predictions where we call a clear winner and match these up with the best odds on the market.
With that said, there are alternative bet types that are perfect when EPL match predictions are uncertain, which we will cover later. But before we get to that, here are some basic tips to help you make your best Premier League bets.
- Do your research: Use our detailed EPL predictions to get a good idea of how each team shapes up against the other for any given Premier League game.
- Be selective: Don’t feel like you have to bet on every Premier League game. Be selective and only bet on matches where the bookmakers are offering good odds that pair up with a high-confidence EPL prediction. There’s not much point spreading your money across countless bets if all of them are between teams with an equal chance of winning and the bookmaker odds are tight.
- Consider different bet types: If you really must bet on a Premier League game where it’s hard to call the winner, then consider other bet types. There are many different bet types (more on this later), so when teams are looking equally matched, you might find more interesting bets by placing prop bets, for example.
Where to Bet on a Premier League Winner
The obvious place to make your EPL bets might be with your favorite bookmaker. However, you should also consider changing bookmakers for a variety of reasons, which we will cover soon.
For new bettors who are looking for the best EPL sportsbooks, the simplest option is to use the Bet Now button on each of our Premier League predictions. This will automatically redirect you to the best EPL sportsbook in your region based on the odds and welcome bonuses available to you.
As for why you may want to consider changing your EPL bookmaker, it comes down to optimizing your betting outcomes. Here are some factors to consider before placing your Premier League bets.
- The best EPL odds: Different bookmakers may offer different odds on the same Premier League game, so switching to a bookmaker with better odds can potentially increase your EPL betting profits.
- More markets and EPL bet types: Some EPL bookmakers may offer a wider variety of markets and bet types than others, allowing you to bet on more events and outcomes.
- Bonuses and EPL betting promotions: Bookmakers often offer bonuses and promotions to new and existing customers, so switching to a bookmaker with better offers can be a good way to get more value from your EPL betting.
In short, opening an account with multiple bookmakers can be a good way to get more value from your Premier League betting and improve your overall winnings.
For more EPL bookmaker options, consider taking a look at our comprehensive list of the best sportsbooks. Alternatively, use the Bet Now button in our Premier League predictions to be intelligently redirected to the best bookmaker for that match in your region.
How We Make Our EPL Odds Predictions
While our prediction engine uses a huge variety of Premier League stats and events, and you don’t need to know all of them to make the most of our Premier League tips, it is still good to have a general overview. This will help you better understand our predictions and place your best bets.
What follows is an overview of some key Premier League stats that we take into account.
Key English Premier League Stats
Premier League Team Form
One of the most important determining factors in making an EPL prediction is a team’s recent form. That’s why, before making a prediction, we look at how each team has performed in their most recent matches, including wins, losses, draws, attacking performance, defense, and other EPL stats like ball possession and accuracy.
EPL Head-to-head Odds
Just as the recent form is important, so too is the historical form each team has shown against the other in recent head-to-heads. As such, we also weigh up how the two teams have performed against each other in their five most recent head-to-heads before making our EPL predictions. Doing this also highlights differences in playing style and the relative strengths and weaknesses that will play a role in determining an EPL match winner. For this reason, we provide extensive coverage of previous head-to-heads in all of our EPL predictions.
EPL Injuries and Suspensions
Injuries and suspensions can have an outsized (and often unpredictable) impact on the odds of an EPL match. And while we attempt to take these into account as much as possible, last-minute changes can and do happen. As such, before making your EPL bets, you should look at whether key players are available or not before placing a bet, as sometimes lineups can change last minute.
Home vs Away EPL Match Odds
Some teams perform significantly better at home than they do away, and vice versa. For this reason, we look at the home and away records of both teams when analyzing the odds and making our EPL predictions.
Premier League Goal Scorer Odds
The goal-scoring record of both teams plays an important role in determining EPL odds and helps us predict what the overall goal tally of a game will be and what the most likely goal difference will be.
The Best Premier League Bets and Odds
As we mentioned earlier, not all of our EPL match predictions will have a clear winner or loser. And when this uncertainty is matched with low odds from even the best sportsbooks, alternative EPL bet types might be more interesting.
English Premier League Betting Guide
There are several popular bet types when it comes to betting on Premier League games. Here are a few examples:
- Moneyline: A moneyline bet involves betting on which team will win the game outright, without taking into account any point spread. This is the most straightforward and popular bet type in EPL betting and is the type you will typically use with our Premier League predictions.
- Point Spread: In point spread betting, the underdog is given a handicap in terms of goals, while the favorite is given a goal deficit. You must then predict which team will win the game, taking into account the goal spread.
- Over/Under: An Over/Under bet is where you bet on the total number of goals scored in an EPL game. The sportsbook sets a total, and you must predict whether the final score will be over or under that number.
- Double Chance: This bet is a combination of two of the three possible outcomes in a soccer match. Here you will either bet on the home team and a draw, the away team and a draw, or the home team and the away team. This type of bet offers a higher chance of winning, but, as a hedged bet, it also comes with lower odds compared to other bets.
- Prop Bets: When the outcome of one of our EPL predictions is uncertain, you can instead bet on specific events that might be easier to predict. For example, many EPL sportsbooks allow you to place bets on which player you think will score the first or last goal in the game, or even the first player to be shown a card.
These are just a few examples of the most popular bet types EPL fans can use in combination with our Premier League betting tips. Below, we will provide more details on each EPL bet type.
Premier League Moneyline Bets
EPL moneyline bets are one of the most straightforward and popular types of bets in Premier League betting and are generally the best match for use in combination with our EPL game predictions.
With an EPL moneyline bet, you simply choose which team will win the match outright, without taking into account any point spread or other factors. The odds for each team will be expressed in terms of a negative or positive number, with the negative number indicating the favorite and the positive number indicating the underdog.
How EPL Moneyline Bets Work
Let’s say that a sportsbook is offering odds on a Liverpool vs Manchester United match. The odds for Manchester United may be listed as -125, while the odds for Liverpool may be listed as +175. This means that Manchester United is the favorite, and a bettor would need to wager $125 in order to win $100 if Manchester United wins the match. On the other hand, a $100 bet on Liverpool would bring a profit of $175 if Liverpool were to win the match.
When to Place EPL Moneyline Bets
Moneyline bets can be a good option when the overall winner of a match can be predicted with high certainty. But they can also be risky if the outcome of the match is uncertain or if you let the sportsbooks odds persuade you to back the underdog. As such, you should always do your research using our EPL predictions and consider the odds being offered by the sportsbook when placing EPL moneyline bets.
EPL Points Spread Bets
Point spread bets, also known as handicap bets, are a popular type of bet in EPL betting. They’re also a good match for use with our EPL predictions, as we usually indicate the likely goal score outcome for every Premier League match.
In a points spread bet, the underdog is given a handicap in terms of goals, while the favorite is given a goal deficit. You will then place a bet based on which team will win the game by taking the goal spread into account. The goal spread creates a level playing field, giving bettors more options and making the betting more interesting.
How EPL Points Spread Bets Work
Let’s say that a sportsbook is offering a market on a Tottenham vs Arsenal match. Arsenal is listed as the favorite at -1.5 goals, and Tottenham is listed as the underdog at +1.5 goals. If you place a bet on Arsenal, Arsenal must win the match by at least two goals in order for you EPL bet to be a winner. On the other hand, if you place a points spread bet on Tottenham in this example, Tottenham can either win the match outright or lose by no more than one goal in order for your bet to be a winner.
When to Place a Premier League Points Spread Bet
Point spread bets are a good option when the favorite is likely to win by a margin. They’re also good for bettors who want to bet on the underdog, as they still have a chance to win even if the underdog loses the match. With that said, EPL point spread bets often have lower odds than moneyline bets, so don’t forget to shop around for the best odds and to check our Premier League predictions before placing an EPL points spread bet.
Premier League Over/Under Bets
Over/Under bets, also known as totals, are a popular type of bet in Premier League betting. In an Over/Under bet, you wager on the probable goal tally for an EPL match, regardless of which team wins or loses. The sportsbook sets a total, and the bettor must predict whether the final score will be over or under that number.
How EPL Over/Under Bets Work
Let’s say that a sportsbook is offering odds on a Wolves vs Leeds match, with the total set at 2.5 goals. If you place an Over bet, you will win if the final score is three goals or more. If you place an Under bet, you will win if the final score is two goals or fewer. Here, it does not matter which team scored the most goals. The only thing that counts is that the combined goal total for both Leeds and the Wolves was either over or under 2.5, depending on which side you wager.
When to Place EPL Over/Under Bets
Over/Under bets can be a good option when there is no clear winner in our EPL predictions, but we provide an indication of whether it will be a high- or low-scoring EPL game. Over/Under bets can also be a good option even when our EPL predictions do call a clear winner, as they sometimes have higher odds than moneyline or points spread bets.
EPL Double Chance Bets
Double Chance bets are a type of Premier League bet in which you will wager on two out of three possible outcomes in an EPL match (home team wins + draw, away team wins + draw, or either team wins).
How EPL Double Chance Bets Work
Let’s say that a sportsbook is offering a double chance market on a Chelsea vs Manchester City match. If you place a Double Chance bet on Chelsea or a draw, you will win if Chelsea wins or if the match ends in a draw. If you place a Double Chance bet on Manchester City or a draw, you will win if Manchester City wins or if the match ends in a draw. If you place a Double Chance bet on either team to win, you will win if either team wins the match, regardless of the score.
When to Make Premier League Double Chance Bets
Double Chance bets can be a good option when our EPL predictions give equal probability to two possible outcomes. Usually, if this is the case, we will predict either a draw or a win for one of the sides. It is rare that we will give both teams an equal chance of winning. With that said, the odds offered by bookmakers on EPL double chance bets are typically lower than for moneyline of points spread bets on the same match.
Premier League Prop Bets
Premier League Prop Bets are a type of bet in EPL betting that focus on specific events or outcomes within the Premier League. These bets can be placed on an enormous variety of events and outcomes for any EPL game, including things like an individual player’s performance, combined team performance, or specific events that occur during an EPL match.
How Premier League Prop Bets Work
There are many types of EPL prop bets, and they are usually quite specific. However, to give a couple of examples, a Premier League Prop Bet might involve betting on the total number of yellow or red cards in a match, the total number of corners in a match, the first goal scorer, the total number of goals scored, or the number of assists provided by a player.
When to Place EPL Prop Bets
It’s rare that our Premier League predictions will line up with a prop bet. However, EPL prop bets do add an extra element of excitement when watching a Premier League game and can be a good option for bettors who are looking for something more specific than traditional EPL moneyline or Premier League point spread bets. With that said, these types of EPL bets are often hard to predict, so they are best used for having a little fun.
