English Premier League Odds, Relegation and Top Goalscorer Predictions

At the halfway mark of the season, Manchester City are the favorites according to English Premier League odds.

This year’s English Premier League looks so hard to call that players, fans and sports bettors alike are struggling to predict who will finish top of the pile in May. The EPL, notoriously difficult to win even in a routine campaign, looks even harder to call in the 2020-21 season.

Before we break down which teams are most likely to remain in the title hunt until May, let’s look at the latest English Premier League odds.

Recent results have seen Manchester City (-350) soar to the summit of the EPL, so it’s no surprise that online sportsbook Bovada has listed the Citizens as betting favorites in the latest English Premier League odds.

The Favorites for the Title

Under Pep Guardiola, Manchester City has always entertained, but its defence hasn’t looked settled for some time. Over the course of the first half of the EPL season, however, Manchester City has conceded just 13 goals, a remarkable achievement in any year.

With City now the big betting favorite, Liverpool (+800) has been desperate to get its famed front three firing again, something that Mo Salah did twice in the F.A. Cup defeat at Old Trafford and again in the Reds’ defeat of Spurs in their recent Premier League fixture. While Klopp’s side is firing again, defensive injuries look set to prevent them hitting any kind of consistency and we wouldn’t bet on Liverpool at this stage or at those EPL odds.

Other Challengers in the Hunt

Three other sides are hovering just behind both Liverpool and Manchester City in the English Premier League winner odds, with Manchester United (+800), Leicester City (+2000) and Tottenham Hotspur (+2000) the only sides below a price of +10000.

Of those three, we’d pick Leicester City at those odds. With the Foxes able to negotiate the big games without being a bitter rival of those other teams involved, they could have more of a chance than both other sides. For example, the Manchester clubs will give absolutely everything to beat each other, but will they have the same intensity against Leicester?

Big Names Relying on Superstars

Spurs look listless without either Kane or Son in the side and with every goal they score seeming to involve at least one and usually both of the North London side’s two standout players, any injury to either of their star men will end any hopes they had of their first title in half a century.

While Manchester United is currently the closest challenger of its cross-city neighbor, they have the look of a side that is playing too close to their best to hang in there for the long term. For Red Devils supporters, this season should be one where they look to gain more points and confirm a place in the Champions League for the second year in a row, not something they’ve enjoyed doing for some considerable time.

Who’ll Be Relegated This Season?

The relegation market looked extremely closed for some time, but that has changed in recent weeks, with all the sides currently in the relegation zone regaining a little credibility with recent form.

Sheffield United (-1600) looked doomed a few weeks ago and while the Blades would still be most people’s picks, they no longer offer the same value as they did before victories against both Newcastle and Manchester United.

While it’s very unlikely that Sheffield United pulls out of the relegation zone by mid-May, it’s entirely possible that four or five sides are going to have really low point totals in the Premier League this season. That makes survival a better bet for any of the threatened sides.

Other Favorites to Go Down

The latest Premier League betting odds have Fulham (-115) and West Bromwich Albion (-600) as the two sides most likely to join Sheffield United in The Championship next season. From both sides, it would mean an immediate return to the division after both the Baggies and the Cottagers came up to the Premier League in the summer.

If either side can get out of it, we’d slightly fancy West Brom at present, purely because the brand of football they’re going to play under Sam Allardyce is more likely to yield results, which makes the Baggies’ task of staying up easier than that facing Fulham.

Of the other teams in the Premier League betting odds to be relegated, Brighton looks to be an attractive bet at +450, appearing leaky at the back and playing expansive football, which can be a recipe for disaster if that side doesn’t accumulate early-season points.

Who Will Win the Golden Boot?

The battle to become this season’s Premier League top goalscorer took an unexpected twist on Thursday night as England captain and Tottenham Hotspur talisman Harry Kane (+250) injured both ankles against Liverpool. The injury layoff for the Spurs forward means that the market is wide open.

While it would be easy to pick Mo Salah (+275) as a direct replacement as hot favorite, the Egyptian hasn’t been in such good goalscoring form this season in general. That said, he has the ability to score from anywhere as he showed in the same game that Kane was injured, so he is rightly the most active favorite in the Premier League betting odds.

A United Front

With Kane and Jamie Vardy (+450) both out for a spell, will Salah have it all his own way? We don’t think so, and with Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes (+1000) and Marcus Rashford both vital to the Red Devils’ chances of winning the Premier League title, either are great picks to at least sweat chasing Salah down if not overtaking him.

All you need is for either United player – and we would pick Rashford – to get to within a couple of the lead and you can cash out what could be a lucrative bet.

Odds to be 2020-21 English Premier League Top Goalscorer
Harry Kane+250
Mo Salah+275
Jamie Vardy+450
Son Heung-Min+800
Bruno Fernandes+1000
Dominic Calvert-Lewin+1400
Ollie Watkins+2500
Patrick Bamford+2500
Danny Ings+4000
Marcus Rashford+4000
Raheem Sterling+4000
Alexander Lacazette+5000
Sadio Mane+5000

How to Read English Premier League Odds

Check out any soccer betting site and you’ll see the odds to win Premier League play displayed like this:

Manchester City +100

Liverpool +175

For a typical straight-up bet, the favorite would be denoted by the minus sign (-). Similar to a moneyline bet with a clear front-runner, the club with the lowest odds is the fave, the rest are underdogs.

Let’s say you believe that Liverpool is going to dominate the other teams on the pitch once again and win another EPL title. If you were to lay down $100 on them, you’d get a payout of $275 – your original money comes back, coupled with your prize of $175.

Use our Odds Calculator to find out what you’d win based on the amount bet and odds offered.

What is a Premier League Futures Bet?

A futures bet is made in advance of an event. In this case you’re looking at the odds to win the Premier League. It can be said that all bets are made on future events. Except in this case, you can bet weeks or even months beforehand.

If you see EPL odds you like, jump on them quickly. The lines will shift as more games are played and injuries occur. To get more value on a winning bet, try to get a club at plus money (+). This isn’t to say you shouldn’t take a team at minus money (-), but you won’t get as big a payout as you would with a winning underdog.
