Premier League Betting is a Good Bet with William Hill
The 2012-2013 Barclays Premier League football season has gotten off to a roaring start, which augers well for the continuation of the season; and so has Premier League betting at William Hill. The current season began on 18 August 2012, and it is scheduled to wrap up on 19 May 2013, with full coverage available at William Hill.
The Long Football Season Means More Premier League Betting
The Premier League (also known as Barclays Premier League since the world-famous bank took over sponsorship) is England’s main professional football league, with hoards of loyal fans attending games, rooting for their teams and betting on their favourite sides along the way. (The league has thousands of fans outside of England, as well, where it is known as the English Premier League, or EPL.) During the long and arduous 2012-2-13 season, the 20 teams will each play 38 games, giving punters ample opportunity to place bets on a range of markets, such as high scorer, first scorer, and winning side.
Of the 20 teams competing this season, 17 are making repeat appearances, having played in the 2011-2012 Premier League. In addition, three new teams have joined, after being promoted from the Football League Championship. These newcomers are Reading, Southampton and West Ham United, and they’ve replaced the Bolton Wanderers, the Blackburn Rovers and the Wolverhamptom Wanderers. The point system in the Premier League is easy to follow – no changes this season where scoring is concerned. Teams are awarded three points for a win and one point for a draw; the side with the most points at the end of the season takes home the coveted Cup.
