English Premier League 2022/23 Final Countdown: Futures Betting Markets

We have installed Manchester City as the favourites to win the Premier League title after they signed superstar striker Erling Haaland in June. Pep Guardiola’s men have lifted the trophy in four of the last five seasons, and they now could be even more dangerous with Haaland leading the line.

However, they face fierce competition from the likes of Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea. There is also a great deal of intrigue at the other end of the table, where the newly promoted teams will battle for survival.

You will find a wealth of Premier League futures betting markets at TopSport. Read on to learn about the upcoming season in the world’s most popular soccer league.


Looking Ahead to Premier League 2022/23

The 2022/23 English Premier League season will begin a week earlier than usual and end a week later. The format had to be changed to accommodate the World Cup, which takes place in November and December.

The tournament usually takes place in the summer in the northern hemisphere. However, it has been moved to the northern hemisphere winter, when temperatures in host nation Qatar are not quite so scorching. That will disrupt the Premier League season, forcing teams to cram in a huge volume of fixtures before and after the World Cup. It promises to be a hectic, entertaining campaign.

It all kicks off on Friday 5th August local time, with Crystal Palace hosting Arsenal in the first game of the season. That will take place at 5am on Saturday AEST, but the following game – Fulham vs. Liverpool – is at a friendlier time of 9.30pm AEST that day.


The Key Questions Ahead of The New Season


Can Haaland Fire Manchester City to New Levels?

The Norwegian wunderkind banged in 89 goals in 88 games for Borussia Dortmund, making him the hottest property in world soccer. Man City won the title without a recognized centre-forward last season, so the addition of Haaland could terrify opposition defenders.


How Will Liverpool Fare Without Sadio Mané?

Liverpool lost a talismanic forward when Mané moved to Bayern Munich. He was not as prolific as teammate Mohamed Salah, but the Senegalese star scored vital goals and set the tempo for his team. Mané will be a big miss, but there are high hopes for Luis Díaz and Darwin Nuñez.


Could Tottenham Be Serious Title Contenders?

Spurs boss Antonio Conte has splashed the cash this summer in a bid to turn them into genuine title contenders. They were well off the pace last season, but they have a world-class manager and a stronger squad this time around. 


Can ten Hag Rejuvenate Manchester United?

The Red Devils suffered their worst Premier League season ever in 2021/22. They finished sixth, with 57 goals conceded in 38 games. Former Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has been parachuted in to save the day, but he has a major rebuilding job on his hands and elite new arrivals have not yet been forthcoming.


Can Newcastle Secure a Place in Europe?

Nouveau riche Newcastle have invested a fortune in bolstering their squad in 2022 following a takeover by the Saudi Arabian Sovereign Wealth Fund. They were on fire at the end of the previous season, and they could be genuine top-six contenders.


Can the Promoted Teams Avoid the Drop?

The three newly promoted teams are the favourites to go straight back down in our Premier League relegation odds. However, the last time all three newcomers were immediately relegated was in 1998, so you would expect at least one of them to beat the drop. Who will it be?


Premier League Winner Odds 


Man City – $1.61

We make City the clear favourites to maintain their status as the dominant force in English soccer this season. They have offloaded a few famous names since lifting the trophy in May, but the arrivals of Haaland and Kalvin Phillips could make them stronger than ever.


Liverpool – $3.50

The Reds finished just one point behind City last season, and they won both domestic cup competitions. They have a very strong spine featuring Alisson, Virgil Van Dijk and Fabinho, along with an embarrassment of attacking options, so they could run Guardiola’s men very close again.


Tottenham – $15.00

Richarlison, Ivan Perišić, Yves Bissouma, Djed Spence and Clement Lenglet have all arrived to bolster the Spurs squad for an assault on the Premier League title. They boast a fearsome strike partnership in Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, so they could muscle their way into contention.

Chelsea – $17.00

The Blues won the Champions League in 2020, but they regressed last season. Romelu Lukaku was allowed to return to Inter on loan after flopping at Stamford Bridge, and Chelsea signed Raheem Sterling to add fresh dynamism to the frontline. Can he galvanise this team?


Premier League Top Four Odds


Tottenham – $1.62

The top four teams in the Premier League qualify for the following season’s Champions League, which results in a huge financial windfall. The battle for a top-four finish is always fierce, and Man City ($1.02), Liverpool ($1.08) and Spurs are the clear favourites.


Chelsea – $1.70

The Blues have finished in the Champions League for the past four seasons, and we have priced them at $1.70 to repeat the feat.


Man Utd – $2.50

The Red Devils will need to toughen up in defence if they are to return to the top-four next season. The arrival of Christian Eriksen should help them create more chances in attack, but they face a fight to keep hold of star striker Cristiano Ronaldo before the transfer window slams shut.


Arsenal – $2.63

The Gunners missed out on a top-four finish last season after a late capitulation in May. They have strengthened since then, but so have their rivals, so we are offering $2.63 on the Gunners returning to the Champions League for the first time since the Arsene Wenger era.


Newcastle – $9.00

The Magpies won six of their final eight games last season after conducting a January spending spree. They have strengthened their starting 11 by signing Nick Pope and Sven Botman since then, and they are dark horses for a top-four finish.


Premier League Top Six Odds


Man Utd – $1.44

The Red Devils have never finished outside the top-six, but they will need to improve as they aim to hold off the likes of Newcastle.


Arsenal – $1.50

A top-six finish is the bare minimum that Gunners boss Mikel Arteta will expect after bringing in Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabio Vieira.


Newcastle – $3.25

The Magpies are the most likely team to gatecrash the Big Six. They could still sign more stars before the window closes on 1st September, so they will be popular among punters.


West Ham – $5.00

The Hammers ended up seventh last season and sixth in the previous campaign. They have kept hold of key midfielder Declan Rice for another year, so they will fancy their chances of challenging for a top-six finish.


Premier League Relegation Odds


Bournemouth – $1.54

The Cherries finished second in the Championship last term, but manager Scott Parker has been operating on a shoestring budget in the transfer window. Meanwhile, the other newly promoted clubs are spending heavily on new players in a bid to beat the drop, so Bournemouth are the favourites to yo-yo straight back down to the second division.


Nottingham Forest – $2.10

Forest beat Leicester and Arsenal in the FA Cup last season, suggesting they were ready for a return to the Premier League. They have been very active in the transfer market since winning the Championship playoff final – a game worth £170m ($295m) to the victor – bringing in Jesse Lingard, Dean Henderson and Taiwo Awoniyi, among others. Will it be enough to keep them afloat?


Fulham – $2.25

The Cottagers cruised to the Championship title last season, with Aleksandr Mitrović firing in a record-breaking haul of 43 goals. They have made some astute investments since then, but they are still among the relegation favourites.


Leeds – $3.25

Leeds pulled off a great escape last season. They beat the drop in dramatic fashion, beating Brentford on the final day of the campaign. Since then, they have lost their two best players, with Raphinha moving to Barcelona and Philipps joining Man City. However, manager Jesse Marsch has raided his former clubs – Salzburg and Leipzig – for some talented players, so this new-look Leeds side could be interesting in 2022/23. 


Brentford – $3.50

Brentford returned to the top tier of English soccer in 2021 following a 74-year absence. They secured an impressive 13th-place finish, but can they cement their status as a Premier League club?


Top Goalscorer Odds


Erling Haaland – $2.10

Haaland is the narrow favourite for the Golden Boot after terrorising defences across Europe over the past two seasons. He will benefit from tremendous service at Man City, with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva teeing up chances, but it remains to be seen how he will adapt to life in the Premier League.


Mohamed Salah – $2.25

Salah has won the Golden Boot three times in the past five years. He shared it with Tottenham forward Son last season. There will be even greater pressure on the Egyptian forward this time around following Mané’s departure, so he looks well priced at $2.25.


Harry Kane – $3.25

The England captain is a three-time Golden Boot winner, but he dropped into a deeper role for Spurs last season. Son was the main beneficiary, so he may be a more tempting option at odds of $15.00.


Darwin Nuñez – $3.50

Liverpool paid top dollar for the Uruguayan striker in June. He arrives with a big reputation, but he has intense competition for a place in the team, with Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota vying to lead the line, so he may not always be guaranteed a starting berth.

Premier League Futures Tips 


Tip #1: Man City-Liverpool Exacta – $2.50

These teams were streets ahead of their rivals last season, and we should witness another two-horse race in the 2022/23 campaign. Liverpool will fight every inch of the way, but the addition of Haaland should help City maintain their dominance.


Tip #2: Brentford to be Relegated  – $3.50

The Bees made a flying start last season, but they ran out of steam by the middle of the campaign. They were in freefall until they signed Eriksen on a short-term contract. He has now joined Man Utd, and they will badly miss his creativity, so their stay in the Premier League could be a brief one.


Tip #3: Mohamed Salah to be the Top Goalscorer – $2.25

Salah has the proven ability to score goals in the Premier League. You cannot say the same of Haaland. The Egyptian forward has found the back of the net 118 times in 180 league games for Liverpool, and he is likely to blaze yet another trail of destruction across the division next season.
