£1.5b Premier League Returns With Most Open Race Ever Expected

Saturday sees the return of the Premier League, a competition that generates over £300,000,000 turnover at William Hill and upwards of £1.5b turnover for the entire betting industry.

“With seven teams 33/1 or lower to win the title, this Premier League season is the most open ever,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Should that be the case, turnover could reach an all-time high for football.”

Manchester City are 5/2 favourites to win the Premier League ahead of Manchester United at 3/1 and Chelsea at 11/2.

“The Pep and Mourinho narrative is one that will run and run over the course of the season and the battle between the two will certainly be an intriguing one but the odds suggest you should not bet against another team coming out of the woodwork,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
