Favorites To Win The Premier League

The favorites to win the EPL are starting to close in on each other in the Premier League odds board.

Manchester City (+185)

Manchester City’s Premier League odds have lengthened from +125 to +185 after a disappointing draw over the weekend against Southampton at home. They now have 10 points in five matches, which has pushed them to fifth on the EPL points table.

Manchester City had 16 goal attempts against Southampton but only one on target. They had a 64 percent possession rate with 555 completed passes at an accuracy rate of 87 percent. Southampton had two shots on target on 10 shot attempts. Manchester City were simply unable to break through a sturdy Southampton defense, which happens frequently in soccer when an underdog deploys a deep line to get enough bodies behind the ball.

“Today we didn’t win not because we don’t have a centre-forward,” manager Pep Guardiola said after the match. “We didn’t win because the process to build up, to create, to give better balls to the players up front was not good. When it is good, you can run, you arrive in better positions. Of course, we had just one shot on target, but there were four or five blocked in the six-yard box, so we were there. The five guys who have to bring the ball to the other players was not good.”

Chelsea (+200)

Chelsea blew past their London rivals Tottenham on Sunday to breeze to the top of the EPL standings. It has been an absolutely fascinating duel for the top of the table with Liverpool. Both teams won their previous matches by a scoreline of 3-0, which maintained an identical goal difference (12 goals scored and 1 conceded) of +11.

Thiago Silva, N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger scored in the second half in a dominant performance from Chelsea, which saw them take 20 shots with half of those on target. They completed 525 passes at a high conversion rate of 87 percent. They allowed Tottenham just eight shots, with two of those on target. Chelsea are now piling on the pressure on the rest of the EPL simply through consistency and discipline.

Chelsea will be wary of Manchester City’s wounded ego. “It's very important, it's massive for us because of where we both are in the league right now,” Trevoh Chalobah said. “I think we've done well in big games this season against big opponents. The way we've started this season, we should go into the game full of confidence. They're a very good side, full of quality players and we know the dangers they can cause, but we'll be ready for them.”

Value Picks To Win The Premier League

The EPL odds for both value picks have shortened after the last weekend.

Liverpool (+350)

Liverpool cruised to a comfortable 3-0 win at home against Crystal Palace to retain their lead atop the EPL standings along with Chelsea. Both teams are vying in an intensified battle for any semblance of an advantage in the early exchanges of the season.

Liverpool utterly dominated that match, with 25 shot attempts and 10 on target. They also retained 60 percent of the possession against a steady Crystal Palace team, allowing their opponents just two shots on target. Liverpool’s Premier League odds have shortened a tad to move to +350.

Jurgen Klopp also confirmed Trent Alexander-Arnold will be back for this weekend’s game. “Trent was not injured, Trent was a little bit ill. He’s back in training, trained yesterday and will be fine,” he said. “James (Milner) was a similar thing to Trent, so he should have recovered. I saw him running around here, nobody told me differently – I assume he will be in training today.”

Manchester United (+550)

Manchester United managed a come-from-behind victory against West Ham to stay abreast with Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of the table. Cristiano Ronaldo equalized in the 35th minute before a Jesse Lingard goal in the final minute of regulation time ensured Manchester United moved to 13 points in their first five matches.

It was yet another effective performance on the road from Manchester United, a sign that they have the discipline required to convert draws into wins to set the stage for one of the most exciting seasons in the EPL in a while.

"The first 10 minutes we were slow, pedestrian both in possession and out of possession. That is something we have to address and we do address,” manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer said after the win against West Ham. “I wasn’t very pleased with the start at all, no. The response was great again but we can’t find ourselves in these situations and expect to get the wins that we have done. We need to start games better."

Betting Strategy For EPL Winners 2021-22

Manchester City’s Premier League odds shortening makes them a compelling choice at this stage of the season. There won’t be too many games where they are unable to score. There won’t be too many more games where Kevin De Bruyne doesn’t start either. These are lucrative EPL outright odds for the defending champions.

It will be interesting to see how Chelsea respond in yet another big match, this time against Manchester City this weekend. If they can put in another disciplined performance, they might even top the Premier League odds board.

Even with Liverpool and Manchester United tied as value picks, my money would be firmly on Manchester City because they still haven’t found their best rhythm and fluency yet.

Who Will Lead The English Premier League In Scoring?

Odds for Top Goalscorer in 2021-22 Season
Cristiano Ronaldo+175
Romelu Lukaku+250
Mohamed Salah+500
Harry Kane+1200
Sadio Mane+2000
Bruno Fernandes+2800

Odds as of September 24 at BetOnline Sportsbook

Favorites To Win Golden Boot

Cristiano Ronaldo (+175)

In just two matches, Ronaldo has already scored three goals for Manchester United. It’s too early in the season to look at his position in the goal-scoring charts. His efficiency might be a better starting point to analyze.

He has taken 10 shots with a goal conversion rate of 30 percent. In terms of shot accuracy, he has a 70 percent rate. These are returns you would expect from a player of his calibre, which is why his EPL outright odds have shortened further.

Romelu Lukaku (+250)

While Lukaku didn’t score against Tottenham, there has already been enough evidence that he will score 20 goals fairly easily this season. He has already tallied three goals in four matches. On eight shots taken, he has a goal conversion rate of 38 percent with a shot accuracy of 75 percent. His Premier League outright odds to win the Golden Boot have not moved since Odds Shark’s previous update.

The Outside Contenders

Mohamed Salah (+500)

Salah scored in the previous match to take his season tally to four goals. He has perennially been in the race for the Golden Boot in the last few seasons, and this will be no different. He has taken 18 shots, an indicator that he will be a pivotal player in the final third this season for Liverpool. While he has a goal conversion rate of just 22 percent, he has an accuracy rate of 72 percent. His EPL outright odds have shortened from +600 to +500 after his goal against Crystal Palace.

Harry Kane (+1200)

It seems astounding that a player of Kane’s proficiency has not been able to score yet. After a topsy-turvy start to his season, there is now confirmation that he will spend the next few months with Tottenham, a team that has now suffered consecutive 3-0 defeats. Tottenham need their talisman to stand up and do what he does best: score goals. However, he is not a favored candidate for Golden Boot anymore, as his odds of +1200 attest to.

Which EPL Club Will Finish At Bottom Of Table?

Crystal Palace+900
Wolverhampton Wanderers+1400

Favorites To Finish Bottom

There is one clear favorite to finish at the bottom and a few value picks.

Norwich (+140)

Norwich have started the new season with five straight losses to remain at the bottom of the table. They were beaten 3-1 by Watford at home in their previous match, a fixture they would have circled on the calendar to try and pick up some points from.

Norwich have scored just two goals so far, fewest in the Premier League so far, and have conceded 14 goals, the most in the EPL this season. Production of those extremes is usually a recipe for disaster, as Norwich are finding out rather rudely.

Value Picks To Finish Bottom

Burnley (+400)

Burnley have also struggled in the early stages of this new EPL season. They have picked up just one point so far, which has left them languishing at 19th on the EPL table. There are discernible and apparent offensive issues but some of those have been papered over by their defensive grit. With nine goals conceded so far, their defense will not be coming to Burnley’s rescue.

“Barnes and Woody historically have been an effective partnership,” manager Sean Dyche said. “There are always decisions to be made, it’s not just about scoring a few goals. Everything is considered. But strikers are important to any side and I think we have four very good ones.”

Odds Shark will return next week to update you about the new Premier League odds, which will certainly become clearer after Chelsea face Manchester City. Stay tuned to this page for more information.

How To Read English Premier League Title 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.
