The 2023/24 Premier League schedule has officially been released, and with that has come hoards of pundits and fans trying their best to predict the outcome of the season. But what do the sportsbooks have to say?
If you're a fan of futures and outright betting, you've probably taken a look at the spreads for the upcoming season of EPL fixtures, but perhaps you're not sure where your wagers should go... Well, that's where we come in.
Today, we're going to go through all the best English Premier League odds in the market right now, including some of our favourite bets to place for the 23/24 season. Check the full outright odds table at the end of this article.
First, here's the rundown for the Premier League's predicted top 6 clubs next season:
Unsurprisingly, the sportsbooks have listed Manchester City as favorites to win the 2023/24 Premier League title. After flying past Arsenal in the final few weeks of last season, Man City ended up top of the league table, but also took home the treble with a 2-1 FA Cup Final victory over Man Utd, and a 1-0 UEFA Champions League win over Inter Milan.
The addition of Erling Haaland lifted an already dominant team to truly unstoppable standards in the 2022/23 season, as he broke the all time single-league goal-scoring record in his first season with the club.
Despite Arsenal's impressive start, Pep Guardiola bullied his way through the final few games while the Gunners failed to maintain their early-season form, and City reclaimed their crown for three consecutive titles.
Will Manchester City win again or will another side rally to take their spot?
After their dominant 2020 run, Liverpool have had a few rocky seasons over the last few years, and dropping 3 places down to 5th from their 2022 campaign was certainly an unwelcome surprise.
Experts over at ESPN have already made a way-too-early prediction that Liverpool will go toe-to-toe with Man City for the title next year.
Liverpool finished in fifth place, 22 points behind champions Manchester City, so Jurgen Klopp's side have a lot of catching up to do next season. They must somehow find a way to bridge the gap and, from a purely mathematical perspective, they have to win another seven games and find another draw from somewhere just to move level with Pep Guardiola's team. Liverpool simply need to rediscover the consistency that has made them City's closest rivals in recent years, but the good news is that everyone starts from scratch in August, so that 22-point gap will be reset to zero.

Despite getting off to a great start in their 22/23 season, Arsenal ultimately fell short of the title with a streak of poor performances in the final few months. Nonetheless, Mikel Arteta put together a fantastic campaign that positions them well for future opportunities.
At the start of last season, Arsenal's odds to win the league stood at +4000. Now, following their impressive year they currently have odds of +900 to lift the trophy for the first time since 2004.
A year ago, Manchester United had long odds of +2800 to win the Premier League, but managed to land a third-place EPL finish, second-place in the FA Cup and even secure victory in the League Cup under the guidance of Erik ten Hag.
Off the back of their surprising season, Man United's chances of winning the league next year are now almost a third of what they were last year +1000.
Could they become champs of the EPL for the first time since the Alex Ferguson era?
After successfully breaking into the top four with the backing of Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund - who are currently signing the best of the best for the Saudi Pro League - it's unlikely they'll fall out of the chase next year.
With Kieran Trippier being fully recovered for the 22/23 season and Targett's move becoming permanent, both are set to make huge impacts for the side.
But the squad additions haven't stopped there. They successfully signed Sven Botman after a long pursuit, and Nick Pope joined them on a bargain transfer following Burnley's relegation. And there are still plans for more investments before the transfer window closes. The Geordies have been associated with potential moves for Lucas Paqueta, Duvan Zapata and even Moussa Diaby.
With identical odds to Newcastle, we could Chelsea them battling it out for a top 4 spot next season. It was a welcome surprise to see the Magpies make a run to the top of the table, but the Blues will be kicking themselves for falling down to 12th last season.
It's tough to call their 22/23 campaign anything other than a disaster. It marked the first time Chelsea finished in the lower half of the top-tier table since 1994.
The odds currently stand at +1800 for them to reclaim the title, which is surprisingly high after a 12th place finish. But with the guidance of new manager Mauricio Pochettino, there's plenty of hope among fans and sportsbooks alike that they can make a strong comeback in the upcoming season, especially with no European distractions.
Despite the overall disappointment of the Spurs last season, Harry Kane still logged an impressive 30 goals. There's plenty of uncertainty surrounding his future as there have been rumours around him leaving this summer. However, the newly appointed manager, Ange Postecoglou, will make every effort to convince their star man to remain at the club. If he does make a move, you can expect them to slide drastically in the sportsbooks.
With Villa beating them out for a spot in Europa Conference League Qualifiers, Spurs will have one focus next season - climbing their way back into the top 4. But their success rides almost entirely on their moves in the transfer window.
