Premier League Outright Winner: 2022/23
How many teams can win the 2022/23 Premier League title? The bookies regard Manchester City as the team to beat, with Pep Guardiola’s side having won four of the past five renewals including last season where they held Liverpool at bay to clinch the championship.

With Erling Haaland on the City books and Kalvin Phillips reportedly on his way, you can currently get a best price of 8/13 with Betfair that the Cityzens continue their dominance in English football even if they are struggling to crack the Champions League.

It will be interesting to see whether City are stronger with Haaland banging in the goals, with Fernandinho having left the club and Gabriel Jesus reportedly on his way to Arsenal. However, there will be many punters putting Guardiola’s men in their season-long accumulators.

Liverpool are regarded as their likeliest competitor and it would be no surprise to see the two clubs well clear of the chasing pack which has been the case in the majority of recent seasons. The Reds are trading at 5/2 with Coral to reclaim the crown that was landed three campaigns previously.

On that occasion, the Merseyside outfit were ending a thirty-year drought without a domestic title and Jurgen Klopp’s side are likely to be competitive once again, with Darwin Nunez effectively replacing Sadio Mane in the attacking ranks, although much comes down to whether Liverpool can bolster the midfield department.

The bookies are struggling to split Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, although it’s the former who are splashing the cash during the early part of the campaign. Capturing Richarlison from Everton is a real statement of intent, with William Hill making the north London outfit a 16/1 chance to be crowned champions.

It should be noted that Antonio Conte won the Premier League title during his first season at Chelsea and there are some attacking players who are likely to yield goals in the form of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, with Spurs having to balance their domestic affairs with Champions League football.

The same applies to Chelsea who were in a state of limbo towards the end of the previous season and Thomas Tuchel will now rebuild his squad after seeing Antonio Rudiger and Romelu Lukaku among the players to leave the building, although the German retains some quality players at Stamford Bridge.

Boylesports have 16/1 that we see the west London team crowned champions for the first time under Tuchel and perhaps new owners Clearwater Capital will be able to make the sort of signings that can make Chelsea competitive, especially if Raheem Sterling comes from Manchester City.

Beyond the top four, the bookies are prepared to offer big betting odds about all the other teams. Coral have 40/1 that Erik ten Hag makes himself an immediate Red Devils legend by steering Manchester United to the EPL title, while Arsenal are a 66/1 poke with bet365 and Newcastle come next in the betting at 100/1 with betfair

Premier League Outright Relegation: 2022/23
Bournemouth are back in the English Premier League after landing automatic promotion from the Championship, although the bookmakers think that the Cherries will be struggling to fend off the drop next term. Scott Parker’s side are no bigger than 4/6 with Betfred to go down and it’s going to be hard for them to finish above at least three other teams.

Joe Rothwell and Ryan Fredericks are the early captures at the Vitality Stadium although the Dorset outfit are considered as the most likely team to drop back to the second flight, even though Parker acquitted himself well with Fulham in the past.

Speaking of the Cottagers, they have not been able to last beyond one season in each of their previous two attempts in the top flight, although Coral have 13/10 that the London side suffer the drop. Marco Silva will hope that the goals of Aleksandar Mitrovic can keep them afloat, with an early clearout paving the way for new faces that can keep them afloat.

The third promoted club are Nottingham Forest, with the Midlands side available at 10/11 with bet365 to finish eighteenth or lower. It’s going to be a tall order for Steve Cooper’s side to stay afloat when they come up against the big boys, although the manager elevated the Tricky Trees in an upward trajectory last term.

Taiwo Awoniyi has arrived as a big money signing at the City Ground and further recruits could help them be competitive. It’s rumoured that Dean Henderson could complete a season-long loan move and that would strengthen another position, while many of the Forest squad are capable of playing in the top flight.

Leeds United are regarded as the most vulnerable of the existing Premier League clubs, with the Whites priced at 5/2 with Boylesports to go down. Jesse Marsch’s side only just stayed afloat last term although the departure of Kalvin Phillips could leave a big hole in the central midfield area and they were floundering for much of the campaign.

Brentford might be squaring up for a difficult second season in the top flight and they’re unlikely to have Christian Eriksson operating for them again, while there’s a reliance on Ivan Toney to score goals for the Bees. Betfair have 13/5 about the London side dropping back down although they were well clear of the drop zone last term.

Southampton are next in the betting and Boylesports have 7/2 that the Saints don’t stay afloat, although they continue to make smart captures to cover for the notable departures that seem to happen on a regular basis. A coach like Ralph Hasenhuttl means they should always find a way to stay out of the drop zone.

As for Everton and Wolves, they could be decent value contenders. The Toffees have just seen Richarlison leave for Tottenham and they are priced at 5/1 with Betfred to go down after flirting with relegation last term. Meanwhile, Wanderers are a 6/1 poke with Betfair and it could be a season of struggle for the Midlands side.

Premier League Golden Boot: 2022/23
Mohamed Salah arrived at Anfield in the summer of 2017 and promptly scored 32 goals during the 2017/18 season during his first campaign representing Liverpool. The Egyptian then finished joint-top scorer the following year with 22 goals and has exceeded the 20-goal mark in two of the three most recent seasons, finishing joint-top with Son Heung-Min last term.

Therefore, the 5/1 with Betfred about Salah scoring the most Premier League goals next term looks perfectly attractive. There are four places being offered for the each-way betting and history suggests that the African player is going to be near the top of the pecking order.

However, there is a new kid in town and Erling Haaland was immediately installed at the head of the Premier League top scorer betting market once it had been announced that Manchester City had signed him from Borussia Dortmund. It will be interesting to see how the Norwegian adjusts to life in England.

William Hill have 7/2 that Haaland lands the top scorer prize and his goal rate in the German Bundesliga was roughly one per game, although you might argue that the English top flight will present a sterner test which is something that Timo Werner can vouch for during his two seasons at Chelsea.

You might do worse than back both the front two in the betting, although Harry Kane initially looks like someone who is also going to fill his boots. The England captain top scored in the division during the 2020/21 season when pilfering 23 goals and there were previous triumphs in 2015/16 and 2016/17.

Betfred have 13/2 about a player who is going to be flanked by Son Heung-Min and Richarlison, with the former also among the favourites and the South Korean technically won last season’s award when finishing like a train for his manager Antonio Conte. Son can’t be ignored due to his predatory ability and it will be interesting to see how long Ladbrokes’ 12/1 lasts.

Liverpool have a new kid in town in the form of Darwin Nunez and some bookies go as short as 12/1 about the Uruguayan although others take a dimmer view and Betfair are prepared to chalk up 16/1 that we see the forward overhaul his rivals despite the fact that Salah is very likely to be on penalties.

Another team-mate is Diogo Jota and he’s 25/1 with William Hill, although Gabriel Jesus could be a more interesting contender at the same odds with bet365. The Brazilian appears to be winging his way to Arsenal and it might be that he benefits from more game time for an attack-minded side who could be directed to feed him assists.

The evergreen Jamie Vardy is a 33/1 poke with betfair and it will be interesting to see if bet365 are still prepared to offer 50/1 about Raheem Sterling if the England forward secures a move to Chelsea and occupies a central striking role for a team who were well short of goals last term.
