2022/23 English Premier League Betting Odds & Tips

August 2, 2022

It’s time share our predictions for the 2022/23 English Premier League season.

The monotony of the mid-summer training sessions and the unrelenting rumor mill have quietened down as teams line up for their chance at success in the league.

They will be hard-pressed to outdo Leicester City’s 5,000/1 title-winning season, but the races for relegation, Champions League qualification, and ultimately, the title, are expected to be intensely fought across the board.

Lace up your boots, grab your lucky shirt, and do your favourite dance – it’s time to check the latest odds available at the top football betting sites.

Odds to Win Outright

Manchester City (8/13)

Manchester City are the favourites to win the league at 8/13, according to bet365. The powder-blue assassins have built a squad overflowing with talented but egoless players that work for each other rather than individual numbers. Credit for this system goes to manager Pep Guardiola who, despite lacking recent European success, has helped City win four of the last five EPL titles.

Midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne is still at the top of his game and will benefit from having a new target – 21-year-old wunderkind ErlingHaaland – waiting in the box. Haaland is a ruthless goal-scorer who seemed to come up with a goal contribution every time that he stepped on the pitch in the Bundesliga, though it remains to be seen how he will transition to a more physical Premier League.

Last year’s champions have too much quality to individually detail, and they will be favoured practically every time they lace up.

Liverpool (5/2)

Liverpool, as per usual, are second favourites with the bookies. The Reds have lived largely in Man City’s shadow for the past five years, although twice they were just one point away from tying their rival’s points total – they are also the only team to nick a league title amid City’s dominance, making them the most obvious threat to their dynasty.

The Merseyside club were forced to let go of prolific winger Sadio Mane over the summer, creating a bigger opportunity for January signing Luis Diaz to take over on the left wing. Fluid attacker Diogo Jota also figures to see the field more frequently, while an underrated summer signing – midfielder Fabio Carvalho – could also see extra minutes.

Liverpool play the most high-octane system in the world, relentlessly pressing into the attacking third, which constantly disrupts their opponents but can occasionally leave them barren at the back.

Tottenham Hotspur (12/1)

Tottenham is third in the list of EPL outright betting odds but with decent separation from the top two; the club made a selection of nice signings this summer, including Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic, and Richarlison, all of whom fit the high-intensity mould constructed by manager Antonio Conte.

The team also holds a claim that no other competitor could even dream of, as they boast the two most recent Golden Boot winners: Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane.

Spurs transformed tremendously as last season progressed, and although their tradition of underperforming in key moments will temper expectations, they are on the ascendency.

Chelsea (16/1)

Chelsea are in a precarious position. The Blues have an impressive squad, especially in defence, as well as one of the world’s best tacticians in Thomas Tuchel at the helm, but they are also facing a squad exodus. According to recent reports, as many as nine players want to leave the club, leaving new owner and acting sporting director Todd Bohely with plenty of work to do.

Chelsea also got battered 4-0 in a preseason match in Miami, Florida against Arsenal, a performance which Tuchel publicly lamented. When they are at their best, they could be considered the best team in the world, but when they are not, they have a tendency to throw away a lot of points.

Odds to Finish Top Four

Manchester United (6/4)

According to 888sport, Manchester United (6/4) have the best chance of entering the top four of all teams not mentioned in the immediate title hunt. However, that does not make their season a guarantee, as the only constant at Old Trafford recently has been change.

Former Ajax manager Erik ten Hag is entering his first season in charge of the club and has promised to bring a more modern, free-flowing style of play. He will need to sort out his defence and also figure out what to do with stayaway megastar Cristiano Ronaldo, but if he can, the Red Devils will be in business.

Arsenal (8/5)

Arsenal’s on-field play would never lead anyone to think that they are still the youngest team in the league. The Gunners try to emulate Man City’s constant movement and passing, albeit with less talent on the field. They do have an unfortunate history of collapsing in dire situations, however, leading the jury to still be out until proven otherwise.

Newcastle United (7/1)

What to think about Newcastle? The previously relegation-stricken side are now the richest club in the world and figure to improve once again during the January window. They also racked up an unbelievable number of points in the business half of the 2021/22 season, outperforming every team in the league bar City, Liverpool, and Tottenham.

Odds to Be Relegated

The best betting sites in the UK agree that AFC Bournemouth, Fulham, and Nottingham Forest are the favourites for relegation.

AFC Bournemouth are in for the biggest slice of humble pie at (4/9), also according to the latest EPL relegation betting odds from 888sport. Normally, the team that won the playoff would be in this unwanted position, but it is actually last year’s runners-up in the EFL Championship that have the lowest chance of survival. Their squad is depleted, and they have a history of dropping out of the EPL shortly after achieving promotion.

Fulham and Nottingham Forest are both next on the chopping block at (11/10) as the newly promoted sides all face imminent peril, according to the bookies. Both clubs had a few of their key players poached from bigger sides, and they will struggle to scrape enough points together to survive.

Brentford and Leeds United (23/10) are also at risk of dropping out of England’s top flight; Leeds is still transitioning to new manager Jesse Marsch, while Brentford, despite exceeding expectations last season, do not seem to have the on-paper talent required to maintain a mid-table spot year-to-year.

Southampton (3/1) and Everton (7/2) both flirted with relegation last season but have been given a favourable cushion this time around. Both clubs have more financial clout and would have to go on terrible runs to finish in the bottom three.
