Suggested Bets for the Premier League What to bet on this season
by Leon Hughes on 9th August, 2019


The return of the Premier League is finally upon up as Liverpool host Norwich City on Friday evening, kicking off what promises to be a thrilling season ahead. As we conclude our Premier League betting preview, we at Compare Betting Sites will take a look at the players and clubs outside of the so-called Big Six that could attract plenty of interest in various outright betting markets. 

Top six chances 

With several of the Big Six in a period of transition there are a host of clubs with aspirations of finishing in the top six or even the top four. After spending in excess of £100m this summer, Everton lead this particular market. Manager, Marco Silva, has assembled an impressive squad at Goodison Park and the Toffees will hope their new signings will help them push on up the league. Everton are 16/1 with Sportingbet to finish in the top four whilst a top six finish is 4/1. 

Wolverhampton Wanderers finished as the best of the rest behind the Big Six last season as the newly-promoted side finished a credible seventh. Wolves’ chances of breaking into the top six this season could be hampered by their participation in the Europa League. They are however an excellent outside chance to win the Europa League at 25/1. 

It’s just four seasons since Leicester City were crowned shock winners of the Premier League and with Brendan Rodgers at the club, good times could once again be just around the corner. Their side is built around James Madison and Jamie Vardy who can be backed at 20/1 to win the PFA Player of the Year award or Golden Boot respectively. 

The Foxes’ top six prospects were hit by the departure of Manchester United new boy, Harry Maguire. However, on the whole, Leicester City have enjoyed a successful summer in the transfer market, making the loan move of Youri Tielemans a permanent one and recruiting Ayoze Perez from Newcastle United. Both Wolves and Leicester City can be backed at 4/1 with William Hill to finish in the top six. 

Golden Boot prospects 

If you fancy any side to break through that glass ceiling and finish in the top six then you may want to consider one of their centre forwards in the Golden Boot betting market. Each-way bets will pay out on the top four positions in the scoring charts, meaning there is excellent value in the likes of Leicester City forward, Jamie Vardy at 16/1 or West Ham United’s record signing, Sebastien Haller at 50/1 with Unibet. The same bookmakers are offering 50/1 on either Raul Jimenez of Wolves or Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson. Everton new boy, Moise Kean is commonly available at 66/1. 

The sack race 

The bookies’ odds suggest that three managers are heading into the new season under far more pressure than the other seventeen. Paddy Power have installed Crystal Palace manager, Roy Hodgson, as the 7/2 favourite to be the first Premier League manager to leave his post. The Eagles will hope to pick up points against newly-promoted duo, Sheffield United and Aston Villa with the other three of their first five fixtures coming against Everton, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. 

Palace managed to retain Wilfried Zaha despite the advances of Everton and Arsenal but having lost Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer and spending just £6m, manager, Hodgson is up against it. 

Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is the bookies’ second-favourite to get the chop at 4/1 whilst Newcastle United manager, Steve Bruce, is available at 9/2. Newcastle United have invested heavily this summer, spending more than £61m on new players. A large chunk of that expenditure (£39m) was spent on Hoffenheim forward, Joelinton. If the Brazilian takes a while to adapt to the Premier League then you have to question where Newcastle’s goals will come from. Given the popularity of former manager, Rafa Benitez, Bruce will find himself under pressure if Newcastle get off to a slow start. 

Relegation 

In the battle to beat the dreaded drop, the bookies’ odds suggest that up to ten sides could be set for a huge relegation battle this season. Newly-promoted duo, Sheffield United and Norwich City are overwhelming favourites to make an immediate return to the Championship. Sheffield United are odds-on at 5/6 with RedZone whilst Norwich City are 6/5 with Black Type. 

Both Burnley and Brighton were fortunate to survive last season and at just 2/1 for relegation, this coming season is unlikely to be much better for their fans. Newcastle United are also 2/1 for the drop and despite spending more than £140m in the summer, Aston Villa are just 5/2 with Betway, Coral and Ladbrokes. 

As we conclude our preview of the Premier League’s outright betting markets, you can sign up to any of the mentioned bookmakers via Compare Betting Sites and earn incredible welcome bonuses to get you started.
