The Premier League is back for a new season and Manchester City come in as title favourites, after their excellent victory in the 20/21 campaign. As you would expect from one of the greatest football leagues in the world, there are some fantastic Premier League free bets available for those wagering on the league throughout the season.
Premier League Outright Betting Markets
There are a number of Premier League outright odds available to bet on, it’s not all about who wins the league. Look out for betting on relegation, the top four and other markets, all of which will interest punters.
We’ve broken down all the outright betting odds, alongside the latest odds from top UK bookmakers.
Premier League Winner Odds 2021/22
After winning the Premier League title in good fashion last season, Manchester City are the odds on favourites for success again this season.
The title looks to have already narrowed down to just three possible winners, with Chelsea and Liverpool the two challengers for City’s crown.
Premier League Relegation Odds 2021/22
Betting on the relegation market is always interesting, especially for those who are fans of the teams down towards the bottom of the table.
As ever, the betting is dominated by teams that have been promoted from the Championship, who will have to be at their very best to stay up in the top tier.
Newcastle have recently been taken over, Eddie Howe is now the man in charge, can he keep them up?
What Does Outright Betting Mean & How Does It Work?
Outright betting is essentially a market that runs throughout the course of an event or league season with the outcome only being confirmed at the very end.
Let’s say you wished to back Manchester City. In order to win Manchester City would need to win the league and the bet would only close once a league winner has been confirmed.
The market is available to play across the season so odds fluctuate dependent on results. If Manchester City were 10 points clear at the top of the table in January, for instance, then the odds would be even more stacked in the club’s favour, while another club at the top would have the reverse effect.
When To Bet On Outright Markets
Betting on outright markets can be done at any point during a season so timing it right is key in order to get the best odds.
The beginning of a season will usually offer the best odds in the Premier League winner odds, as well as the top scorer charts.
However, they are also worth monitoring as lots can change throughout a season, particularly when it comes to the relegation markets. For example, a change in management could encourage a good run of form and offer good value in the To Stay Up market.
Alternatively, injury to a key player, trouble off the field or unrest in the dressing room could see a side’s form dip and make the outright relegation odds worth playing.
Ultimately it’s about monitoring the odds, following results and latest Premier League predictions carefully and placing your bets at exactly the right moment.
