Premier League odds

| 25.06.2013

The Premier League is widely recognised as the best football league in the world and it is the most-watched league in the world, broadcast across the globe to a potential television audience of 4.7 billion people.

The league was formed in 1992 and since then it has been dominated by one team: Manchester United.

The Red Devils have 13 league titles to their name under former manager Sir Alex Ferguson and as a result they have usually been the favourite at the start of the season in the Premier League betting.

However, despite winning the league last season, bookmakers were struggling to split Man Utd, Man City and Chelsea.

Man Utd have won 13 Premier League odds

Manchester City won the title in 2011/12 in one of the most dramatic conclusions to the Premier League.

Managed by Roberto Mancini at the time, City were losing at home to QPR on the final day of the season.

With rivals Man Utd winning at Sunderland, Mancini’s side needed two goals in the last five minutes and they scored them in a crazy finish, with Sergio Aguero writing his name into Manchester folklore with the winning strike.

Chelsea have won three Premier League titles and this season saw the return of iconic manager Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal also have three titles to their name and manager Arsene Wenger has patiently overseen the club’s move from old ground Highbury to the Emirates down the road.

The Gunners – who last won the Premier League 10 years ago – are now in a realistic position to challenge for the title once again.

The only other team to win the Premier League is Blackburn Rovers.

Bankrolled by Jack Walker, and managed by Kenny Dalgleish, Rovers created history by winning the league in 1995 but the club currently reside in the Championship after a sharp fall from grace.

Chelsea have won three Premier League odds

Only the German Bundesliga is better attended than the Premier League, with an average of 45,000 compared to 34,000 in England.

Manchester Utd are the best-supported team in the league, with an average attendance of over 75,000.

Welsh side Swansea have the lowest average attendance of 20,000 however Michael Laudrup’s side are actually very well supported; their ground is 98% full on average.

The Premier League odds are closely studied throughout the course of the year and many bets are placed before the season starts in August.

Over the course of the season, 380 matches will be played, offering a plethora of betting opportunities for knowledgeable punters.
