The English Premier League is one of the world’s most-followed leagues. It is the highest soccer league in England and is on par with other leagues like Serie A, Bundesliga, and La Liga.
Because of the Premier League’s popularity, the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, and Arsenal have become household names far beyond England’s borders.
Betting on the Premier League was popularized by soccer-mad Brits — who have a long history with betting — and has now become a commonplace activity all over the world thanks to the league’s popularity. The English Premier League is one of the world’s most active betting markets.
So here is how you can place Premier League bets online in Florida.

How to bet on the English Premier League in Florida
When wagering on the Premier League, you can place various bets. You can bet on a game’s result, or you can focus on other things, such as the number of goals. Here are the most common bets that you’ll find at Florida online sportsbooks:
- Game result: Bet on one side or the other to win an upcoming game, or bet on a draw.
- Both teams to score: Since soccer is a low-scoring game, you can bet on whether both teams will score in a game. In this betting option, scores like 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, 3-1, etc., will win you your wager since each side has scored at least one goal. Alternatively, you can bet on a team not to score — if one or both teams fail to score in this scenario, you’ll win your wager.
- Over/under (total): Here, the sportsbook sets a line estimating the total goals in a game. You can bet whether the actual total will be over or under the sportsbook’s line. The default over/under line in soccer betting is 2.5 goals. If you place a bet on over 2.5 goals, scores like 2-1, 3-1, 2-2, etc., would be enough to win your wager.
- Handicap betting: This is similar to spread betting. One team gets an advantage of several goals, while the other gets a handicap that it must overcome. For example, if a team is at +1.5, it could lose by one goal and you’d still win your wager. On the other hand, if a team is at -1.5, that team needs to win by two or more goals for your wager to win. Scores like 2-0, 3-1, 3-0, etc., in favor of your team are ideal in such a scenario.
- Correct score: Instead of predicting the game’s result, you can be more specific and bet on the game’s exact score. This is harder than just predicting the winner, and the odds will reflect this.
You can also place prop bets and futures bets. Prop bets focus on distinct side bets throughout a game, such as these examples:
- Which team will get the most corners in the game?
- Team A to score X number of goals.
- Player A to score in the game.
Futures bets, on the other hand, focus on long-term achievements. When you place a futures bet, usually you’ll have to wait till the end of the season to find out if you’ve won. Examples of futures bets you might find on apps like Caesars include the following:
- Which team will win the Premier League title?
- Which player will win the Golden Boot?
- Which teams will get relegated?
Odds for Premier League futures can come out months before the Premier League starts. Major sportsbooks like the DraftKings Florida app and BetMGM betting site will release odds once the promoted/relegated teams have been decided.
If you want to place a futures bet, a good time to do so may be after the close of the summer transfer window once all of the squads are final. However, you have to consider that the transfer market usually closes a few weeks after the season starts and a team’s odds may change depending on what happens in those games. So the second-best time to place a Premier League futures bet is just before the start of the season — some may even argue that this is the best time.
Premier League betting EPL odds for weekend games usually come out well in advance and change based on a team’s form. Other things, such as injuries to key players and managerial changes, can also affect a team’s odds.
You can bet on live games, as well. This means you can watch a game and place a live wager on it. Usually, many of the pregame Premier League betting options that we mentioned above will still be available. The odds and betting lines will shift, however, to reflect how the teams are playing and the amount of time left in the game.
There are also some distinct live props that you can place. You may be able to bet on things like who will score the game’s next goal or which team will score the next goal. Here are some other examples of live bets:
- First-half winner.
- Second-half winner.
- Team to win the rest of the game.
- Over 1.5 goals in the second half.
Premier League player props/futures
If you’re looking for one-off player props for upcoming games, you should be able to find a variety of options. Some sportsbooks will even let you choose your prop bets. Here are a few examples of player props that you can place:
- A specific player to score a goal.
- A specific player to get a yellow/red card.
- Which player will score the first/last goal?
- Player to score a header?
- Player to provide an assist?
- Player to score a penalty?
You can also place long-term player-focused bets, which are somewhat similar to prop bets. The most common player-focused futures bets include the following:
- Player X to win the Golden Boot (award for the league’s top scorer).
- Which player will get the most Premier League assists?
- Who will win the PFA Player of the Year award?
- Who will win the Premier League Player of the Season award?

FA Cup/Champions League odds
Aside from the EPL, Premier League teams also take part in the Champions League and the FA Cup. The Champions League is Europe’s top club competition, and the best teams from each European country take part. At the end of the Premier League season, the league’s top four teams qualify for the Champions League.
The FA Cup, meanwhile, is England’s oldest football competition. It is an annual tournament that involves teams from different levels of the English football league system. This includes Premier League teams, which enter the competition in the third round. Since it’s a knockout competition, points don’t matter in the FA Cup. A lower-level team can defeat a Premier League giant, which is the magic of the cup.
You can still bet on Premier League teams in both of these competitions. If you want to place a bet, just go to the soccer tab on your sportsbook and select the desired competition. For example, if you want to bet on the Champions League, ensure that you click on the Champions League option instead of the Premier League option.
