After a short international break, the Premier League is back on April 1. And we’re down to the home stretch with 10 to 13 games left on the schedule depending on the side.
Brighton & Hove Albion has the most games remaining on its fixture list with 25 games played. They’re 27 points back of league leader Arsenal. But still, sportsbooks aren’t ready to take them out of the title race with +100000 odds.
English Premier League Title Odds
|Brighton & Hove Albion||+100000|
Arsenal Premier League Title Odds (-150)
The title is Arsenal’s to lose. With 10 games left on their schedule, they sit at the top of the Premier League with an eight-point cushion over Manchester City.
Mikel Arteta’s men have gone unbeaten in six games, posting a 6-0-0 record. They’ve also outscored their opposition 19-5 with three clean sheets in those six contests.
Leading the Gunners’ stellar offense is Gabriel Martinelli. The Brazilian has scored six goals in those six wins for Arsenal. A heads-up, you’ll want to put a unit on Martinelli to score at any time against Leeds this Saturday. His odds are currently at +130.
When it comes to winning the title, Arsenal has one of the toughest upcoming schedules. Only Chelsea, Everton and Southampton have a more difficult set of fixtures coming up. Arsenal could slip up. Specifically when they head to Manchester to take on challenger City later this month.
Manchester City Premier League Title Odds (+130)
City has an easier remaining schedule than Arsenal, though not by much.
With a game in hand, Manchester City can reduce the gap between themselves and Arsenal to five points with a win. But that would still leave a sizable gap for Pep Guardiola’s men to overcome.
Having Erling Haaland helps out a lot. The Norwegian is on a three-game goal streak in all competitions with an incredible nine goals. In the Premier League, the former Dortmund striker has three goals in his last five games.
Arsenal and City face off on April 26 at the Etihad. That’s likely when the title will be decided. City is 11-1-1 at home with an incredible +30 goal differential and five clean sheets. That’s a big advantage for Man City and that’s why their odds aren’t that far from Arsenal’s.
Premier League winners And opening Odds
Very few teams over the previous 10 years have won the Premier League title with odds below +300 right before the season began. Only Chelsea in 2016-17 and Leicester in 2015-16 did so.
No, that’s not a typo. Leicester City was a long shot to win the Premier League in 2015-16. It basically seemed impossible that the Foxes, who were in a relegation scrap the previous season, could win a title the next year.
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.
