The 2017-2018 Premier League finally gets underway again in August and you can get our best three bets for each weekend on the action here - plus our three pre-season outright best bets!

History of the Premier League

The top tier of the English football league pyramid became the Premier League in 1992 as clubs in the top division agreed to branch away from the Football League to take advantage of a lucrative television broadcasting deal which has helped the league to become one of the most popular and instantly recognisable in world football.

Prior to 1992, the division was known simply as Division One in the pyramid, and was dominated by many different teams over the decades. Preston North End were the first winners of the trophy back in 1888 and the likes of Liverpool, Sunderland and Huddersfield Town enjoyed spells of dominance in different eras.

 In 1992 however the game at the top level in England began to change quickly and none of those teams mentioned have been able to win the trophy since, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers the only teams to lift the famous trophy thus far.

Now the competition includes players from across the globe and is watched by supporters from every far flung corner of the earth, with the top teams raking in obscene amounts of money through TV broadcasting deals, merchandising and sponsorship which in turn has led to huge transfer fees and wages for the top players in the division.

After Leicester City's astonishing world famous win in 2016, normal service was resumed as Chelsea instead managed to lift the trophy last season whilst the rest of the top six was occupied by Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United, as expected. 

Premier League 2017/2018 Season Preview

We're all set for another season of thrilling Premier League action. Let's be honest, just a few weeks into the summer break and we're already desperate for the football to return, for Soccer Saturday, Match of the Day, pies at the game, a few pre-match pints and of course Saturday afternoon accumulator bets!

Brighton & Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town will compete in the Premier League for the first time having won promotion from the Championship last season alongside title winners Newcastle United. Those three teams replace Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Hull City who were relegated last year.

The usual suspects will no doubt be fighting it out for the title at the top of the table. Reigning champions Chelsea now have European competition to contend with also, whilst London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and London will be looking to competitive alongside Manchester sides City and United.

Liverpool are also looking to build on their top four finish this season after a fine campaign under Jurgen Klopp, but Everton have spent wisely and could be looking to break into the top four. Alongside the newly promoted sides, you can expect the likes of Swansea City and Burnley to struggle somewhat.

Premier League Outright Odds

Chelsea may have been the most dominant Premier League last season, but with Champions League football likely to be a drain on their squad, the bookmakers are making both Manchester United and Manchester City shorter odds to win the title as both sides look to add serious quality to their squads over the summer.

After those three favourites, Tottenham Hotspur, last year's runners-up are the next favourites despite having to play at Wembley this season during the construction of their new stadium, whilst Jurgen Klopp is looking to continue improving his Liverpool squad and Arsene Wenger is hoping his Arsenal side can improve dramatically on last year's disappointment.

Of course these odds are likely to change as teams continue to make changes to their squads ahead of the new season and as the action kicks off odds are likely to change based on team's early results, but check the table below for the latest outright odds on the Premier League 2017/2018 winner.

Our Top 3 Bets

Looking for some Premier League betting tips? Every matchday we will update this section with our Top 3 Premier League betting tips for the weekend's games. Prior to the competition getting underway however, we can only look at the outright markets and give our outright tips which are as follows...

Manchester City to win the trophy at 2/1 with BetVictor

After a year settling into life in the Premier League, Pep Guardiola will want to make the upcoming season a success at Manchester City, and he's made a statement of intent already with the signings of Bernardo Silva from Monaco and Ederson from Benfica. A year older and wiser, Pep will be desperate to prove himself as the top boss in England and we think his squad has the quality to do so.

With Gabriel Jesus looking like a real talent, he could even displace Sergio Aguero from the starting line-up whilst the likes of David Silva, Kevin de Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan add serious world class quality in the middle of the park and as such, we think the Citizens will be a real force to be reckoned with over the next twelve months.

Newcastle to be relegated at 4/1 with William Hill

Newcastle United were relegated the season before last in strange circumstances, but they returned at the first time of asking after winning the Championship last season - but is this current squad good enough to stay up? The only additions that have been made since relegation do not, on paper, seem like the kind of players that can kick the Magpies onto the next level.

Rafael Benitez is undoubtedly a talented manager and any hopes of survival are roundly pinned on the Spaniard, but with 4/1 odds for relegation the bookies seem to think that the North East side will be as safe as houses in the Premier League next season. We're not so sure.

Paul Pogba to win Player of the Year at 10/1 with Paddy Power

After a slow first season back in the Premier League, Paul Pogba will be expected to pull the strings for Manchester United this season. Although the Red Devils won three trophies last season, they didn't reach the heights expected of them in the league and this year Mourinho will be hoping for improved performances from his squad and from the world's most expensive player in particular.

There can be no doubt that the France international has the skill to pull the strings from the middle of the park and with his incredible vision and passing ability he could be the man to lead United to a more successful season altogether in the Premier League and don't be surprised to see him pull off a few world class goals in the process.
