The Premier League Winner odds are among some of the most popular football betting options at 888Sport.

There is an ever-changing landscape of odds to consider as the Premier League season winds on. Will a team starting the season strongly manage to hold on at the top? Will a team that’s not at the summit come the midway point of the season put on a strong surge in the second half of the campaign?
There are exciting variables that affect the Premier League betting winner odds market - things that can keep punters guessing right down to the wire. Injuries to key players and transfers can have a big influence on who gets their hands on the crown.
