Online betting continues to grow in Australia and popular online bookmakers such as Sportsbet, Ladbrokes and Neds reguarly offer great promotions on EPL markets.
Popular promotions that bookmakers often use include, money back if your side leads at half time but lose and first goal scorer refund offers.

EPL Match Betting
When it comes to the English Premier League, punters will look far and wide for the best value in a range of different markets.
The most popular betting markets for EPL matches are head-to-head betting and line betting. Head-to-head (H2H) basically allows you to bet on a specific team to win, or for the match the end in a draw.
Some online bookmakers will also offer H2H markets where your bet is refunded if the match results in a draw. These markets will dramatically reduce the odds on each side in the market.
Line betting is also another popular betting market for EPL matches. When you bet on the line in an EPL game you’re looking for a side to either clear a goal margin or get within the margin set by a bookmaker.
For example if you bet on Arsenal at a -1.5 line, you’re betting on them to win by two goals or more. If you bet on Arsenal at +1.5, you’re betting on them to either win the game, draw or only lose by a goal.
There are literally hundreds of other markets you can bet on in any given game but these are some of the more popular ones.
EPL Live Streaming & TV Coverage
The coverage of EPL matches has been a controversial subject in recent years. Optus currently own the rights to broadcast the English Premier League in Australia and they do so via their online streaming platform at Optus Sport.
SBS have the rights to broadcast one game of EPL per week on TV.
The deal with Optus has seen mixed reactions from football fans. While they have been somewhat successful in providing a high quality stream of all EPL games, technology flaws currently mean that each game is on a slight delay. This makes social media a no-go zone if you’re planning to watch a game without spoilers.
