Chelsea won last year’s Premier League title in an impressive manner, despite the fact thatManchester United and Manchester City were the big favorites. Looking at the odds for this season, the predictions hasn’t changed since then. At Bet365, Manchester City is held as favorite and Manchester United and Chelsea comes in as second and third.
A bet on Manchester City before the start of the season will give you 2.80 times the wager – a pretty low stake considering the not so convincing third place from last year. A bet on Manchester United and Chelsea, who shares the second place in the odds list, will give you 5.50 times your wager.
After the top three, there’s also an outsider trio in the winning odds list at Bet365. There, you’ll find Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool. Tottenham came in second in last year’s Premier League and will pay 11.00 times your wager, Arsenal will pay times 12.00 and Liverpool times 13.00.

About Premier League
Premier League is the top football league in England since 1992/93. It’s also considered to be one of the best leagues in the world – alongside La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A. Premier League came out of the English Football League, wich was the first football league in history. In 1992, the 22 teams in the current highest division decided to break out of the league, and that’s when Premier League came about. English Football League, EFL, does still exist in England’s lower football divisions.
Premier League is now separate from The Football League however – and can decide about TV-rights and sponsoring on its own. Premier League and EFL are however still connected in one way. Teams from the division under can get a place in Premier League and vice versa – depending on their results in their respective leagues.
European success for the english football clubs
The venture to create Premier League has resulted in great things. From being a league that had difficulties with keeping and finding young talents, Premier League is now one of the most star-packed football leagues.
Since clubs like Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United has grown to be very successful in Europe, the league has also gained in popularity. Premier League is now the world´s most popular football league – with more than half a billion people watching the games every year, in 202 different countries.
How Premier League is played
During every season of Premier League, a total of 20 teams are competing for the title. All teams will play each other twice – once at home and one time away. This means that 38 rounds are being played throughout one full season. Except for the league title, there are also qualification for Champions League and Europa League up for grabs for the top teams.
For the moment – The Championship, which is the league below Premier League, three spots for Premier League qualification. Two of them means direct qualification, and the third one is secured through playoff between 3-6. This means that the three bottom teams in Premier League each year will be degraded down to The Championship.
The teams in Premier League does also participate in the english cups: the FA Cup, FA Community Shield and the EFL cup. There are, in other words, plenty of titles for the english teams to chase – even if the domestic cups doesn’t quite compare to a title from Premier- or Europa League.
Plenty of interesting derbys
One thing that makes Premier League a bit special is the fact that it has a lot of recurring derbys. We have the Manchester derby between City and United, there’s the Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton, and the northen London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham. In London, there are derby’s especially often since Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, West Ham, Watford and Crystal Palace are all placed in that area.
The derby’s does often occur on Sunday’s, which has led to the expression “Super Sunday”.
