With the 2016-17 EPL season just around the corner, there are transfer aplenty.

And in turn, every club is optimistic about what their new signings will add to the side.

The popularity of the EPL and football in general is continuing to grow down under and hence, Premier League Betting is becoming even more popular in Australia.

It is now one of the most popular markets for football fans in Australia.

Just under a month out from the start of what promises to be another tantalising season, Manchester City are favourites to win the title, at $3.40 with William Hill.

Their bitter cross-town rivals, Manchester United, are not far behind after acquiring new coach, Jose Mourinho, paying $4.25 to win the title after an indifferent past few seasons under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.

Another club with a new manager, Chelsea, round out the top three, at $6.50, while their London rivals, Arsenal are paying $7.00 to take out this season’s Premier League title.

After looking invigorated under new manager Jurgen Klopp in the second half of last season, many punters expect Liverpool to return to form, with the Reds paying $7.00 to lift the trophy in 2016-17.

While last season’s shock winners, Leicester City, are not expected to be able to go back to back, paying $26.00.

Meanwhile, if looking at the other end of the table is your thing, newly promoted Hull City ($1.70), Burnley ($1.90) and Middlesbrough ($2.75) are all favourites to be relegated at the end of the season.

Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero is favourite to net the most goals in season 2016-17, at $4.50, with Tottenham’s Harry Kane at $8.00 and EPL new boy Zlatan Ibrahimovic, third favourite at $9.00.
