In today’s article, I will be going into some of the details of online betting specifically for the EPL, and I will also be including some of the first few games that will be played.

Online Football Betting
With the reinstatement of the EPL, many sites have begun their online betting operations in preparation for these games. Nevertheless, there could potentially be some differences in how these odds will be calculated.
For one, games will be played indoors, meaning home ground advantage might not be that advantageous as compared to the pre-Covid era.
Two, there may be players that cannot turn up for the games due to existing travel bans.
Three, players have ceased training for quite some time and therefore team dynamics and a break in that seasonal momentum could affect their performance as well. Therefore, while online betting has commenced for EPL, do pay closer attention to the odds that are being offered, and if something seems too good to be true, it definitely is.
A word of caution for those looking to bet. Make sure that you place bets with sites that are credible and reliable and will not potentially abscond your money away.
What are the first few games that will be played?
The first few matches are definitely exciting, with Aston Villa who is at risk of relegation kicking off against Sheffield United and Man City taking on Arsenal on the 18 June.
Man City is definitely looking to try and catch up with league leaders Liverpool who has a 25 points lead. For Liverpool supporters, watch out for the derby game on the 21 June against Everton. Liverpool only has to win 2 more games for them to secure their victory of the EPL. Can Liverpool make it or will they stumble? We can only wait to find out.
Where can UK players who have self-excluded place sports bets?
There are several sites where UK players can place sports bets. The important thing is to find a credible one that caters to your needs. The non gamstop bookies we recommend are: BetOnline, Sportsbetting, tigergaming, fortuneclock, leo monaco & LionelBets.
You can also find free bets, e sports bets, bet365, bet UK and many others. Some of these sites have interesting configuration of bets that one can place. For example, you can place bets on who will be scoring first, or the number of cards that will be issued during the game.
