The series starts filming in Kent, U.K., Feb. 23 and promoters are name-dropping some serious poker players: Tony G, Phil Hellmuth, and Roland De Wolfe among them.
Still, PartyPoker.com's betting site is giving the edge to Ulliott - a World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner and recovering bad boy - as a 11-2 favorite to win the event.
The dis likely won't sit well with Hellmuth, whose odds are pegged at 6-1.
"The early interest has been in the 'Fish' and we had no choice but to make him the early favorite to win," said a PartyPoker.com spokesperson. "One thing is odds-on though, Phil Hellmuth will not take this news well, we just hope he doesn't spit his dummy out."
Premier League Poker features 12 of the world's best players competing for a $500,000 pot.
Other pros' odds are: Andy Black, 10-1; Ian Frazer, 10-1; Kenna James, 10-1; Kiril Gerasimov, 15-1; Liz Lieu, 15-1; Vicky Coren, 25-1; and Eddy Scharf, 30-1.
