Here at mr.play Sports you will find everything you need to bet on the English Premier League. We bring you a huge range of betting markets for each and every match, as well as general markets on the league as a whole. The odds on offer are some of the most generous available, ensuring that even when betting on clear favourites, you have the chance to win a bit more with every bet.
Premier League Betting Odds Explained
In order to make the most of the hundreds of betting markets available on the Premier League, it is vital that you properly understand the different markets and how odds work. Broadly speaking there are two types of markets, Outrights, which deal with long-term factors such as who will win the league or who will finish in the top three, and Game Odds, which deal with the actual matches and cover an amazing range of things.
Premier League Betting Markets
There are normally well over one hundred different markets available for each Premier League game. The most popular market is the Match Result, also known as 1X2 Full Time. This is simply a bet on which team will win or if the match will end in a draw. The Asian Handicap Market is also popular and it requires you to select a winner with each competing team carrying a goals handicap. Finally, the Goal Totals Over/Under market is a bet on either over or under a specific number of goals.
There are many more markets available on individual matches such as Total Goals, 1X2 Corners FT and Exact Score, as well as far more nuanced markets. The betting markets are divided into multiple categories, such as Goals, Halves, Corners, Players, Cards, and Specials, and each one is packed with betting opportunities. By carefully exploring all of our markets and making use of them, you can turn virtually every moment and aspect of a football match into a bet winning opportunity.
Premier League Outright Markets
Zooming out to the Outright markets, the Premier League title market is always very popular. It is simply a bet on which team will win the league and you can place the bet at any time during the title race. The odds will change as the season progresses based upon how the teams are performing and this can be used to your advantage. For example, if a team is starting the season with a series of easy games then their odds will likely shorten if they begin the season with a number of wins. Conversely, if a team starts the season with a string of defeats but you still think they will win, then the bet will likely offer longer odds after the defeats.
Another very popular market is the Premier League Top 4 as this is often not decided until the very last few games of the season. Clubs have a huge incentive to finish in the top four as those that do will qualify for the following season’s Champions League. In addition to betting on an individual team to finish in the top four, the market also offers the opportunity to place an exacta bet, where you pick four teams to finish in the Premier League top four, and this of course offers much longer odds and the potential of greater winnings.
Premier League In-Play Betting
To make watching the match even more exciting, we also offer in-play betting, which brings with it countless more chances to place winning bets. You can react to the action in real-time to place bets that give you the chance to land big wins. For instance, while watching a match you could decide a player looks particularly threatening and bet on him to be the next to score. In fact, there is an entire category of ‘next to’ bets, such as next penalty, next foul, next corner, and more. The in-play betting odds and markets are updated as the match progresses and by keeping a careful eye on them, you may be able to spot some truly fantastic bets. You can even follow updates from the match on our website and make watching a match more exciting than ever before.
Premier League History
The Premier League is the most watched and followed football league in the world. It draws in the world’s top players and as such, has some of the most exciting teams to watch. Furthermore, it is a truly competitive league, making it far more interesting to follow than leagues containing just one or two standout teams that nearly always win. All of this makes it a truly exciting league to bet on.
Many don’t realise that the Premier League was formed as recently as 1992 when the clubs in Eng-land’s First Division resigned from the Football League in order to bring about structural changes. Twenty teams take part in the league and those that finish in the top four positions automatically qualify for the Champions League. The teams that finish in the bottom three positions are automatically relegated to the Championship League. They are replaced by the two teams that finish top in the Championship League as the winners of the Championship play-offs, which are competed by the teams that finish in third to sixth place. To date, just seven teams have won the Premier League. Manchester United have the most titles (13), followed by Chelsea (5), Manchester City (4), Arsenal (3), and Blackburn Rovers, Leicester City and Liverpool (1).
