In addition to providing expert Premier League picks, we also like to look at the antepost betting markets. Whether you are looking to place a single bet on the champions of England or include this selection as part of a season-long football accumulator, there is no doubt that the Premier League Winner heat holds plenty of appeal to betting customers.
After all, there is always lots of discussion when it comes to the team who will be crowned champions after 38 games, with several clubs always having aspirations to top the table, although we often see a two-horse race and that has certainly been the case in the past few seasons.
In five of the previous six campaigns, Manchester City have been crowned champions, with Liverpool managing to break up the run in the 2019-20 season, while it was the Reds who were also hard on the heels of City in the 2018-19 and 2021-22 season before narrowly missing out. More recently, Arsenal led the way for a large chunk of the last campaign before losing touch with Pep Guardiola's relentless side.
Here are the latest Premier League Winner odds from the best soccer betting sites for the 2023/24 season which gets under way in August.
In the end, Manchester City were comfortable winners of the 2022/23 title, with the champions able to leapfrog Arsenal in the run-in and finish six points clear of the Gunners. The Premier League betting sites have unsurprisingly installed City as odds-on favourites to retain their crown and they certainly set the benchmark as far as points totals are concerned.
Pep Guardiola's side were trailing Arsenal for a large part of the previous campaign but they were able to click into gear in the closing stages, with City able to beat the London side home and away and that effectively helped them kick clear of Mikel Arteta's team to retain their trophy. The bookies are expecting more dominance and it will be interesting to see if a team can emerge from the pack and topple them.
It will also be interesting to see whether City conduct much transfer business in the summer considering they already have their ducks in a row. Erling Haaland surpassed expectations in his first campaign at the Etihad Stadium and many benefitted from Premier League prop bets involving the Norwegian. Jack Grealish, Rodri and John Stones also had excellent seasons and it's easy to see why the bookies are taking no risks with their quotes on the champions.
In the past 11 seasons, the pre-season favourite has won the Premier League title on seven occasions. Manchester City have obliged as odds-on market leaders in the past three seasons, while they were priced as 15/8 favorites when winning their first championship under Pep Guardiola in 2017-18.
Twelve months later, they were victorious as 8/11 favorites and have been a reliable source of income for those placing a season-long wager. Back in the 2013-14 season, Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City claimed the spoils when priced at 23/10, with Chelsea obliging a year later when being sent off at 19/10 to win the title.

During the first half of the season, the Gunners lit up the Premier League. The Arsenal stats were so impressive that they were actually title favourites at one stage, with Manchester City breaking up for the 2022 World Cup with a home defeat against Brentford and there were more dropped points shortly after the action resumed.
However, City demonstrated why they are always among the most solid of Premier League picks and Mikel Arteta was left to lament the fact that his team were unable to stay the pace. On the flip side, winning 84 points to finish second in the table was a fantastic achievement and the Spaniard will have learnt a lot from the previous campaign.
We're likely to see plenty of new faces arriving at the Emirates this summer in a bid to not only consolidate the team as top-four material, but also once again challenge for the title, with money available to strengthen a squad that is already brimming with talent.
Ahead of the 2023/24 season, Manchester United are regarded as a team who can challenge for the Premier League title. Erik Ten Hag didn't take long to turn the ship around last term, with the Dutchman recovering quickly from a bad start to steer the Red Devils into the top four and the team remained in the Champions League spots throughout the campaign.
Ten Hag will be backed in the transfer market to further strengthen a team that saw Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen and Casemiro arrive last season. Not only will Ten Hag want to add further silverware this time around and ensure Champions League progress, there will also be a concerted attempt to close the gap on pacesetters Manchester City.
The form of Marcus Rashford, Casemiro and Luke Shaw last season will provide plenty of encouragement, with United now needing more firepower if they are to have a realistic chance of securing a first Premier League title since the 2012/12 campaign.
Few would have expected Liverpool to finish outside the Premier League top four last season, with Jurgen Klopp's side stuttering through the first few months of the campaign and their away form was particularly suspect. Despite a strong end to the campaign, the Reds missed out on Champions League qualification, although we shouldn't forget that the Merseyside team have been the main title rivals to Manchester City in the past few years.
Liverpool registered 92 points come the end of the 2021/22 season, finishing just a point behind the champions. There was also that amazing 2019/20 season which saw Klopp steer the Reds to the title with a phenomenal 99 points, with the German now looking to build a new-look side that can once again rival City.
Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez are five reasons why we should expect this Liverpool team to rack up the goals next term, while the transformation of Trent Alexander-Arnold from right-back to central midfielder could also reap dividends.
If the Premier League title race is going to be a more open one next term, then that could play into the hands of Newcastle United. Eddie Howe performed a minor miracle to steer the Magpies to a top four finish last season and there will now be a determination to build on that lofty finish, with quality signings virtually guaranteed this summer.
While Newcastle will make an unusual foray into the Champions League, Howe will want to make sure that the Magpies are foot-perfect domestically, particularly at St James' Park. There is already the spine of a strong team in place, with Callum Wilson and Alexander Isak offering plenty of cut and thrust in attack, while Bruno Guimares, Joelinton, Kieran Trippier and Nick Pope also quality operators.
Indeed, the betting sites regard Newcastle as replacing Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League Big Six, with Spurs now trading at a much bigger price and they're not only big outsiders for the title but also trading at odds-against when it comes to landing a top four spot.
It was a car crash of a season for Chelsea who started with Thomas Tuchel as manager, before Graham Potter then replaced him before being fired and it was Frank Lampard who finished off in caretaker charge of the first team. Owner Todd Boehly has now decided to hire Mauricio Pochettino although that comes after the spent over £500 million on new players back in January.
Pochettino will now need to reshape a bloated squad and probably make even more new signings, with the Argentine potentially needing more than one season to assemble a title-winning team despite the expectation levels being sky high at Stamford Bridge. For starters, a top four spot would go some way to appeasing the owner and supporters.
Nevertheless, Antonio Conte won the Premier League title during his first season at the club and there's little doubt that there's a talented squad capable of winning plenty of games next term. If the title race is a more open one, then perhaps we might expect Chelsea to be one of the sides challenging.
Several years later, it’s still hard to believe that Leicester City were able to produce a miracle by winning the 2015-16 Premier League title. The Foxes were regarded as relegation contenders that season, with some bookmakers prepared to offer 5000/1 that Claudio Ranieri’s side were able to finish in top spot.
As the season wore on, it was clear that Leicester could challenge for the Champions League places although it took a long time for the bookmakers to install them as favorites before they ended up winning the Premier League by over 10 points. Check out how the Foxes might perform next season by checking out Bookmakers' Leicester stats section.
Despite Leicester’s amazing success that season, it is generally the teams at the head of the market who end up competing for the big prize. Manchester City are testament to that fact after winning five of the past six Premier League titles, although Arsenal outperformed their title odds this season and rewarded each-way backers who took a chance on the Gunners.

There is also the Premier League handicap betting market which doesn’t tend to be available once the season kicks off, although this gives you the chance to bet on a team who you think will outperform their odds for the season ahead.
