Why Manchester City Is The Favorite

Manchester City fell well short of its goal to claim a third straight EPL title this past season, finishing the campaign in second place on the table, 18 points back of Liverpool FC.

However, after avoiding a ban from UEFA Champions League competition, Manchester City is the 2020-21 Premier League betting favourite with its overwhelming wealth of talent.

This past season, the Citizens struggled to maintain the pace that enabled them to suffer just six total losses in league play over their two recent championship campaigns. The club suffered five losses before the end of 2019, and saw their battle with inconsistency linger into early March, posting only three wins in six outings before the Premier League suspended play amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

City also endured controversy off the pitch, getting slapped with a two-year ban from European play by UEFA over alleged financial fair play violations. The ban represented a real threat to the club’s ability to attract and keep top-flight talent. However, after winning an appeal at the Swiss-based Court of Arbitration for Sport, the ban was overturned, opening the door for City to embark on a massive spending spree during the upcoming transfer window.

Defending Champ Liverpool Second on the EPL Futures

Defending champion Liverpool sits second on the EPL futures for 2020-21 at +160, coming off its first Premier League title victory in 30 years.

The Reds’ title march was highlighted by a 26-1-0 win-draw-loss run to start the season. With first place never in doubt, the club cruised down the stretch, going 6-2-3, but saw its championship season marred by early exits from both the FA Cup and the Champions League.

And unlike City, the Reds aren’t likely to be big spenders during the upcoming transfer window. The club reportedly has a transfer budget of just 40 million pounds to work with, taking them out of the hunt for most of this year’s prized transfer targets.

Manchester United Looks to Build on Third-Place Result

Undefeated in their final 14 league matches after enduring a shaky start, Manchester United will be aiming to build on this season’s solid third-place finish on the EPL table.

Like their crosstown rivals, the Red Devils are expected to be active players in the transfer market. In addition to locking up Paul Pogba to a new contract, the squad is reportedly interested in talented Wolves striker Raul Jimenez.

Meanwhile, Chelsea’s uneven stretch run and fall to fourth place will likely spur them to pursue the likes of Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz.

Top Goal Scorer and Who Will Get Relegated?

Liverpool’s Mo Salah has been nothing short of spectacular since coming to Anfield and is the betting favorite at +550 to lead the EPL in goals for the 2020-21 season. But he had a bit of a regression in 2020 from a goal-scoring perspective – the Egyptian managed 19 goals in 34 appearances for the Reds last season, which is a far cry from the 32 he put in the net during the 2018-19 campaign.

While Salah would make a fine choice, don’t sleep on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who put up 22 goals in 36 appearances for Arsenal last season. The 31-year-old has been getting progressively better each season with the Gunners and at +600 could give strikers like Salah or Tottenham’s Harry Kane a run for the Golden Boot.

Odds to Win the 2020-21 Premier League Golden Boot
Mohamed Salah+550
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang+600
Harry Kane+650
Sergio Aguero+700
Timo Werner+1000
Raheem Sterling+1200
Anthony Martial+1400
Gabriel Jesus+1400
Jamie Vardy+1400
Sadio Mane+1400
Marcus Rashford+1600
Danny Ings+2000
Raul Jimenez+2200
Mason Greenwood+2500
Bruno Fernandes+2800
Alexandre Lacazette+3300
Roberto Firmino+3300
Tammy Abraham+3300
Christian Pulisic+4000

EPL Relegation Odds

It doesn’t seem like oddsmakers feel West Brom will make its promotion to the Premier League a long one as the Baggies are odds-on favorites to be relegated by season’s end at -105.

West Brom managed to get promoted despite losing its EFL quarterfinal championship match to QPR but got some help from Barnsley, who put out Brentford to allow the Baggies to advance.

After West Brom, Fulham has the next-best odds to be relegated at +100 after bouncing back and forth between the Premiership and the EFL for the last three seasons.

Here are the full odds for all 20 EPL teams to be relegated:

Odds to Be Relegated From English Premier League In 2020-21
West Brom-105
Aston Villa+185
Crystal Palace+200
Newcastle United+225
Sheffield United+325
Leeds United+375
West Ham+400
Leicester City+3300

How to Read EPL 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 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.
