Ultimate Guide to Betting on EPL in Kenya
The English Premier League is hands down the world's top domestic football league based on the quality of play, the level of competition and the entertainment value it provides. From August to May, the EPL delivers a box office treat with 20 quality clubs competing against one another in often thrilling matches.
The title race this season promises to be the most exciting in years. Liverpool took their feet off the gas and dropped some early points, while Arsenal stepped up their game and climbed into contention. In its quest to secure its ninth Premier League title, Manchester City is off to a flying start.
At 10bet Kenya, EPL online betting accounts for most of the football-betting activity. Punters of all levels frequent our site to place wagers on renowned clubs such as Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool.

The following guide will give you some pointers on how to bet on the EPL, the different types of bets you can make, and everything else you need to know to make informed betting decisions.
The English Premier League was founded in 1992. It is descended from the Football League, the oldest professional football league in the world.
In the beginning, the EPL consisted of the top-flight division teams of its predecessor. Twenty-two clubs broke away from the Football League's First Division to form an independent league that would use a different revenue model, whereby they wouldn’t share TV rights income with the other teams.
As a result, the century-old four-division model was broken up. The English Premier League would be independent, whereas the English Football League would be divided into three divisions.
It was decided that the EPL and the EFL would operate under a relegation-promotion system. At the end of the campaign, the three Premier League teams with the fewest points would be relegated to the Championship. In contrast, three top-performing Championship teams would be transferred to the EPL.
Since the inaugural EPL season, only six teams haven’t been relegated — Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Everton, and Tottenham.
As a result of a reconstruction in 1995/96, the number of teams was reduced to 20, which is how many teams make up the EPL today.
Manchester United is the most successful EPL team. The Red Devils reigned supreme in the 90s, winning six of their 13 titles. Their inner-city rivals, Manchester City, have dominated the Premier League in the last five seasons, winning four titles.
The EPL features 20 teams, many of which are based in London. During the campaign, each club plays the other teams twice — once at home and once away. The contesting teams, therefore, play 38 games throughout the season, which runs from August to May.
Until recently, the EPL was the only major league in Europe without a winter break. The winter break was introduced for the 2021/22 season to reduce schedule congestion and combat Coronavirus spread.
The winter break in 2022/23 will last from 13 November to 26 December.
A few rule changes have also been implemented. Namely, teams can now substitute up to five players per game from a bench of nine. Lineup changes can be made three times during the game, excluding halftime. The three promoted teams this season are Bournemouth, Fulham, and Nottingham Forest, replacing Watford, Burnley, and Norwich City.
Nottingham Forest, a two-time European cup winner, returned to the Premier League this season for the first time since 1999, ending a 23-year drought.
Manchester City is the reigning champion of the EPL. The Sky Blues have won the title four times since Pep Guardiola took over as the manager in 2016.
The following is a list of the teams vying for the Premier League trophy in 2022/23, along with their home stadiums. At 10bet EPL betting app, you'll find detailed betting coverage of each of these clubs and their matches.

By default, 10bet Kenya displays odds in decimal format, which is easy to understand even if you’re a novice. A simple glance at the numbers will tell you which team is the favourite and which is the underdog.
The odds show how much you stand to win from successful bets per 1 KES staked. Unlike American odds, the number indicates the total payout, not just the net profit. Your stake is also included in the calculation, making it much easier for you to work out your payout.
Lower odds indicate a greater likelihood of an event occurring and vice versa. Generally, favourites have lower odds, while underdogs have higher odds and thus a higher payout potential.
According to 10bet Kenya's odds chart, the home team appears first, while the visiting squad is listed below.
If you're still struggling with how to read odds and calculate payouts, here are a few examples to help you fill in the blanks.
Let’s say you want to put in a few shillings on a Boxing Day matchup between Liverpool and Manchester City, which promises to be an absolute thriller. Here’s how the 1x2 (odds for our hypothetical match might look:
In this fictitious match, the Sky Blues are playing home and are considered a mild favourite. Their listed odds are 2.05, which means a winning 100 KES bet would payout 205 KES — 105 KES in profit.
We must also consider the withholding tax on winning bets, which is currently 20%. In our example, the tax would be 21 KES, your total payout 184 KES, and your net profit 84 KES.
In 10bet Kenya, every EPL match is covered wall-to-wall, whether it's a high-profile derby or a bottom-of-the-table showdown between relegation-battling clubs.
Depending on the fixture, there could be as many as 450 different bets available. From standard 1x2 wagers to outright winner bets and an array of specials, the choices are seemingly endless.
We post our Premier League odds earlier than other bookmakers, so you’ll have plenty of time to weigh your picks. Here’s a breakdown of the most popular types of wagers you can place in the 10bet EPL betting app.
1X2, also known as “win-draw-win,” is akin to a three-way moneyline. It is possible to bet on either team winning or a draw. The symbols in the notation are as follows:
1 — home team win
X — draw
2 — away team win
When odds on 1 and 2 differ significantly, a lopsided match is expected. A balanced match should see similar prices for teams A and B.
If you want to play it safe, the double chance should be your go-to bet. This wager covers two outcomes, so you can choose between three combinations:
Team A win or draw
Team B win or draw
Team A win or Team B win
The double chance is much easier to hit than a 1x2 bet but comes with a tradeoff — smaller payouts. Generally, experienced punters make double chance bets on close matches.
Betting on totals means you're betting on whether the total number of goals scored in an EPL match will exceed or fall below the posted estimate. Taking the “over” side, for example, requires 3 goals scored for your bet to be successful. In the case of a low-scoring game, you would bet on the “under,” which would require fewer than three goals to be scored.
This bet is self-explanatory. It’s a two-way, yes/no market. By picking “yes,” you’re betting that both teams will score at least one goal in the match. Taking the “no” side means that you’re predicting a scoreless draw or a convincing win by one of the teams.
First-half bets only consider the score after the first half of the match. In addition to betting on the match result, you can bet on the total number of goals scored by HT.
We also have a variation of this bet called half-time/full-time, where we let you wager on both the outcome after half-time and full-time. Get both halves right, and you're in for a huge payday.
A handicap effectively balances out a match. Underdogs are given a head start, while the perceived favourites are weakened (handicapped). As a result, the underdog team will have one or more goals added to its total, while the favourite team will have that same number of goals subtracted from its tally.
Let’s demonstrate how this works via an example.
Let's say Chelsea is a -1.5 favourite against Wolves. They would have to win by 2 or more goals for your bet on them to be successful. A Chelsea victory of 3:1 or 2:0 would pay out, but a victory of 1:0 wouldn’t.
This is a bet where you need to predict the exact final score of a match. We’ll list a range of potential score lines and the odds for each. The more unusual the score, the bigger the potential payout. As a result, you might see 50.00 odds for a score of 4:3.
Specials or props bets tackle specific occurrences within an EPL match. It can be based on a player, a team, or a match and is usually linked to a statistical milestone. A few examples are provided below:
Draw no bet — It’s like 1x2, but without the draw. You’re essentially backing one team to win.
1st goal — Betting on which team will score the first goal in a match. You can also take “none,” which denotes a scoreless draw.
Team total — With this wager, you’re betting that a particular team will score more or fewer goals than the line implies.
Odd/even — Bet on whether the total number of goals scored in a match will be odd or even.
Team X clean sheet — This is a market in which you’re betting that a specific team will win without conceding a single goal.
10-minute bets — Bet on the outcome of the first 10 minutes.
In general, outright markets are bets that won't be decided anytime soon, usually involving winning a championship. With 10Bet KE, EPL outright odds extend beyond league-winner markets. You may encounter the following outright bets for the Premier League:
To finish bottom — Betting on which team will collect the fewest points during the season.
Best promoted team — A wager on which of the three newly promoted teams will perform best.
Top goalscorer — Pick a player that you believe will win the Golden Boot — score the most goals during the season.
Top London club — Pick the best-performing team from London.
Not to finish in the top 4 — Here, you bet on a team finishing anywhere between 5–20.
By definition, live or in-play is a form of wagering that allows punters to place bets on events that are underway. The odds and lines fluctuate continuously throughout the match to reflect scoring and momentum changes. If you see a live bet you want to take, you should react quickly; otherwise, you could miss your chance.
Live betting and fast-paced events like the EPL are a match made in heaven. In your live betting program, you’ll find more than 50 wagers for every Premier League match, including 1x2, totals, handicaps, both teams to score, and more.
The green arrow in your betting slip denotes an increase in odds, while the red arrow pops up when the odds for a given market plummet.
You'll find a stats hub in the live betting lobby that provides detailed information about the matchup, such as H2H, form, table position, etc. These are all factors you should consider when making your EPL picks.
There are no shortcuts to becoming a successful EPL punter. The only way to make the much-covered profit is to put in the work and analyse each matchup closely.
While there are no guarantees with any bet, in-depth research will significantly increase your long-term win rate.
In light of this, the following English Premier League betting tips may help you get over the hump.
Pre-match research seems like a vague suggestion, so let's be more specific.
When crunching the numbers, you should consider a few statistical parameters. Understanding these factors will allow you to make better predictions about the match.
Begin with simple statistics, such as how many goals each team scored in previous encounters, and then move on to more advanced analytics, including possession, attempts on goal, corners, and yellow cards.
It is also important to take note of the form of key players, as their performances will have a significant impact on the team's success. In cases where the star player struggles to find his A game, his poor performance will negatively impact the team — big time.
Analysing team form is an integral part of football analysis. After beating a few quality squads in a row, a team will be riding high going into their next match. Therefore, they should be considered even if the odds do not indicate it.
The reverse logic applies as well. You can bet on a quality team to snap out of a cold streak if they lose several matches in a row against inferior opponents.
As you evaluate recent form, consider auxiliary factors like schedule, the incentive to win, and injuries. In particular, the top-tier teams will have a hectic schedule due to their participation in European competitions such as the Europa League and Champions League. The possibility of upsets is increased as a result.
Head-to-head records indicate how one team compares with another. Tottenham, for example, has not beaten their city rival Chelsea for quite some time now, proving that the Blues are not a good matchup for the Spurs. Therefore, a double chance bet on Chelsea or draw seems a sure thing, barring any major injuries.
Injuries can compromise the integrity of matches, especially when key players are involved. If the team, which is already thin in defence, is missing their starting right back, it will struggle against offensive powerhouses like Manchester City and Liverpool.
Be on the lookout for breaking news that might affect team chemistry, including player-management issues.
Placing bets recklessly is a recipe for disaster. The best betting bankroll management strategies will tell you to avoid chasing losses and only bet as much as you can afford to lose.
It is a good idea to set a budget before you embark on your Premier League betting endeavours. Whatever happens, you should stick to your budget; even if it means missing some bets that you feel compelled to place.
Bonuses and promotions can significantly boost your bankroll. These increase your chances of winning indirectly by extending your betting time.
In this regard, 10bet Kenya is more generous than most. We provide a hefty intro promo for new customers plus a range of benefits for recurring customers — acca boosts, football lotto jackpots, insurance bets — you name it, we have it.
