The Premier League was introduced in 1992 to replace the old Football League First Division to take advantage of lucrative TV contracts on offer. The format of the league is of 20 teams who play each other twice in a season (home and away). As such there are plenty of betting opportunities available, and our live betting odds comparison service will help you get the best value every time.
The Premier League has been dominated by a small number of clubs, with Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson having won the championship title 13 times between 1992 and the great manager’s retirement at the end of the 2012-13 season, with London sides Arsenal and Chelsea each having picked up multiple titles. The nature of the league and the high standard of players within it make it an exciting spectacle in which many sides – bar the top few – are very evenly matched, so there is scope for great betting value.
