English Premier League upcoming match odds
Odds to win the 2023-24 Premier League
In addition to betting on which team will win the league title, in EPL wagering you can also bet on where in the overall league table a given team will finish. One difference between the EPL and many American sports leagues is that the Premier League does not finish its season with playoffs or a championship game. A team wins the championship simply by finishing the regular season at the top of the standings.
But winning the Premier League isn’t the only option for team futures. For teams higher up in the table, sportsbooks will often offer odds on the team to either win the league or finish anywhere in the top four, top six, or top half of the league. For teams lower down in the table, sportsbooks may offer odds on that team to face relegation at the end of the season.
Other Premier League futures
To finish in the top four
Finishing in the top four of the Premier League is important to teams because it qualifies them to play in the UEFA Champions League, which is typically lucrative for EPL clubs and can also possibly help them in signing top players.
To finish in the top six
Finishing in the top six is also an important metric because it qualifies teams to participate in the UEFA Europa League. This is a less prestigious and less lucrative tournament than the Champions League, but it’s still a potential boost for EPL clubs and for some indicates a rise through the ranks.
To be relegated
In the EPL, relegation is the price teams pay for finishing in the bottom three. The Premier League represents the highest level of professional soccer in England. After each season, the three worst teams in the Premier League are relegated to the second-tier EFL Championship, while the three top teams in that league are promoted to the Premier League.
Moving down in leagues can have dire financial consequences for clubs, so it’s a fate teams want to avoid. This, in turn, helps raise the stakes even in late-season matches between bottom-dwelling teams, because even those clubs that know they have no chance of winning the league or finishing in the top six are still fighting to avoid relegation.
Premier League player props
There are multiple categories you can bet on when it comes to individual players in the Premier League. Some of the most common and popular prop bets are goal-scoring props, in which you can bet on a player to score one or more goals in a match. You can also typically bet on a specific player to score the first or last goal in an upcoming match.
In addition, many sportsbooks will offer odds on a specific player to receive a booking (meaning to be shown a yellow card by the referee in response to a foul) or to be sent off with a red card in an upcoming match.
Types of EPL bets
For each match in the EPL, sportsbooks typically offer a spread and moneyline odds for each team, as well as odds on the match to end in a draw, which is not uncommon in the EPL. You can also bet on the total number of goals both teams will combine to score in a match.
If the spread for a certain team is +1.5, that means a bet on that team would be successful if the team either loses by only one goal or wins by any margin. If the spread is -1.5, it means the team would need to win by two or more goals, and any other result would mean an unsuccessful bet. The moneyline offers odds on a straight victory by any margin, while the goal total sets a number of combined goals that the two teams will score, allowing bettors to wager on the final score being over or under that number.
You can also usually bet all three categories by first or second half. Many sportsbooks also offer other game props such as odds on which team will score first and/or last, as well as whether the game will include a red card or a penalty kick.
For each match, there are usually also various player props, offering odds on which player will score a goal or receive a yellow or red card.

English Premier League FAQ
Can I bet on EPL matches?
Yes. Most legal US sportsbooks offer odds on every English Premier League match.
What are some popular EPL bets?
Point spreads and moneylines tend to be the most popular, but you can also bet on total goals or on the match to end as a draw.
How does the EPL differ from major American sports leagues?
One major difference is that an EPL match can end in a draw, which happens with some frequency. There is no overtime, so if the teams are tied at the end of regulation, the game is a draw, and both teams receive one point in the standings. Usually around 23% of EPL matches end in draws each season.
There are also no playoffs in the EPL. Teams win the championship by finishing at the top of the table at the end of the season. Points determine the standings, with the winning team of each match receiving three points and both teams receiving one point for a draw. A losing team receives zero points.
