English Premier League Kicks Off August 8

August 6, 2015

The English Premier League starts its 2015-16 season Saturday August 8 with a lineup of great matches. Sportsbooks have just released the futures for the EPL. As of the publishing of this, only seven online sportsbooks had released the lineup of EPL odds but many more will be doing so over the next 24 to 48 hours.

Chelsea is the favorite to repeat as the EPL champion. However, the Blues from Stamford Bridge will be pushed hard by Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool.

When one decides to choose a sportsbook to make English Premier League wagers, the best thing is to look here. However, the one very important thing to look at is the quality of odds that are being offered and if the lines set, are improved after the factoring in of bonuses.

On the sites that have released futures, Chelsea is sitting at +175 on one, which is the highest odds for the defending champions.

A number of the books have identical lines for Chelsea as their futures for the season, which ends in May of 2016. Some of the books have different wagering limits, while others list their bonus promotions alongside their wagering limits.

The season is very long in the EPL with each team playing 38 matches. There are 20 teams and each team plays each opponent twice. Mixed in during the regular campaign in England are domestic cups such as the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup, while certain clubs also take part in the two big European Leagues – the Champions League and Europa League.

With all the matches in the EPL, domestic cups and international leagues, some clubs will play over 60 matches between now and the end of May.

The top four finishers in the EPL qualify for the Champions League, while the fifth, sixth and seventh place finishers qualify for the Europa League. The three last place clubs will be relegated to the second division at the end of the campaign.
