The 2017/18 season is scheduled to finish on the 13th May 2018.

With so many people betting on the Premier League, we crafted this article to help ensure people know where to bet, and where to get the most value. Picking the right place might just earn you a free bet, or even double your winnings. Heck, it could even win you £250,000.

Football is the most popular sport to bet on in the UK, and at the same time, the Premier League is one of the most unpredictable leagues. At the beginning of the season that Leicester won, it was possible to back them at 5000/1. Very few would have seen that coming, and even those who did back it would still be deemed mad.

Furthermore, not many would have predicted that Burnley (a team who are tipped to be relegated this season and who managed only one away win last season) would beat the defending champions Chelsea on the opening weekend.

Best Premier League Accumulator Offers

Football accumulators represent one of the most popular ways to bet on the Premier League. It makes a difference where you place your bets because some betting sites will offer you insurance (i.e. if one selection doesn’t come in, you will get your money back) and others will offer a bonus (get extra winnings based on the number of selections).

  • The best bookmaker for bonuses is currently Bet 365.  The bonus starts at 5% and scales all the way up to 100% based on the number of selections.
  • The best for insurance is currently Paddy Power. Almost all of the bookmakers require five selections for insurance, but Paddy Power has the highest refund at £50.

Each bookmaker generally has their own bonus or insurance offer, with slight variations. My Betting Sites as gone through all bookmakers and compared their accumulator offers. For our detailed blog post, see our dedicated football accumulator article.

Chelsea21.00
Arsenal51.00
Liverpool26.00

Last season they made the same great start. Although this year they have been playing some of the best football the Premiership has seen, the true test is coming up. Playing football in the upcoming months can be the most testing for a footballer. The cold and wet conditions, along with fixture congestion can provide both a physical and mental test.

It is this period when Man City have been most likely to slip up. We will find out soon how they cope with it this year.
