The Favorites not at Full Strength 

While Liverpool (+185) and Manchester City (+150) are the betting favorites for the title, neither side looks at full strength this season and that’s been demonstrated in recent performances.

The champions have been shorn of the services of Virgil Van Djik, Joe Gomez and Thiago Alcantara for some time, as well as enduring short-term losses of Jordan Henderson and Mo Salah.

Despite this, the Reds were deserved winners against pacesetters Leicester City and that returned them to the top two, now just goal differential away from the summit. That’s impressive and down to their 12th man – not the famous Anfield Kop, but manager Jurgen Klopp. The German boss has masterminded a complete turnaround in Liverpool’s fortunes, but this season has shown that he can get them over the line when they play badly, let alone not at their best. The scalping at Villa aside, Liverpool still looks to be the team to beat.

By comparison, Pep Guardiola has just signed a new two-year deal at Manchester City yet the Citizens dwell in 10th place, well below their conquerors at the weekend, Tottenham Hotspur. Guardiola’s men looked out of their depth in the high-octane game where everything was on the line and it was a Mourinho master class.

Instead of their usual flowing selves, the Citizens were blunt in attack and opened up at the back, Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min having a field day against a defense that cost City £200 million. That will not worry the billionaire owners but will concern the fans.

Guardiola has never needed to build robust defenses in his other league-winning sides at Barcelona or Bayern and inherited one to work with when he walked into the Etihad to find Vincent Kompany marshalling the troops. There is no kind of that leadership in the current City side and we wouldn’t take their Premier League winners odds of +150 if you paid us to. Liverpool remains the rightful threat to other hopefuls around them.

Other Title Contenders

We wouldn’t rule out Leicester City (+2800) after one loss, but there’s no doubt that Brendan Rodgers’ side really needed not to lose at Anfield. The road back isn’t a long one – they sit just two points behind the leaders – but they need to start winning to justify title talk.  

Chelsea has had a very consistent few weeks and under Frank Lampard, they look to be finding their feet. The third favorites are +700 to win the Premier League title in the latest EPL betting odds via Bovada, but while they have the squad, we’re not convinced that they have the staying power in terms of their defensive capabilities.

Of the challenging teams to the established duo, we rate the chances of Tottenham Hotspur (+800) as the greatest. Spurs look to be a completely different animal to the one they were under Mauricio Pochettino and one year after the Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho took over, they have altered as a force – for the better. Players such as Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen have either been moved or ostracized and in Pierre-Emile Hojberg, they have signed a jewel, for the snip price of just £15 million.

Top at present, Mourinho knows how to win the Premier League and has done so three times already. It would undoubtedly be his greatest triumph if he were to achieve it this season with Spurs, but don’t bet against it. They have two outrageously good strikers who will win games on their own if they can keep fit. They have a defensive unit that makes attacking them an arduous mission.

Relegation Tips

While there are a number of clubs whose Premier League winner odds reflect their abilities at the top of the table, the relegation market is incredibly open. The current EPL betting odds for clubs to face the drop are wide-ranging and, other than two clubs, seem ripe for some value.

Before we pick out our choices based on current form and Premier League position, let’s take a look at the latest EPL relegation odds via Bovada.

Odds on Teams Getting Relegated From Premier League
West Bromwich Albion-250
Sheffield United+125
Newcastle United+350
Brighton & Hove Albion+700
Leeds United+900
West Ham United+1600
Aston Villa+2000
Wolverhampton Wanderers+4000
Leicester City+25000
Manchester United+25000
Tottenham Hotspur+50000
Manchester City+250000

Odds as of November 24 via Bovada

As you can see, Fulham (-300) and West Bromwich Albion (-250) are the betting favorites and we think they both should be worse than those EPL betting odds to go down. Scott Parker was our tip to be the first manager to leave his post and still appeals in that market given his side’s form. The weekend was a perfect example of why they’ll be relegated this season. The Cottagers showed attacking flair, scored two goals and yet lost the game, conceding three sloppy goals.

The Baggies lost at Old Trafford to Manchester United, but while Slaven Bilic will bemoan the result, the club from the Hawthorns put on a decent performance. The simple fact is that at the top of the pitch, they’re not clinical enough. They need a Danny Ings or even a Jay Rodriguez, and instead are relying on inexperienced, albeit exciting players. That’s going to need to change in January for the West Midlands side to have any chance of survival.

Our pick for the other place would be Sheffield United (+125), who are longer odds than Burnley (-110), despite Sean Dyche being a consistent old hand at dragging his team out of the mire. Chris Wilder has spent over £40 million on Oli McBurnie and Rhian Brewster alone, and between them the pair haven’t scored a goal in their first nine games of the season.

Who’ll Win the Golden Boot?

With a quarter of the season gone, there are a few favorites, a smattering of seasoned goalscorers and a couple of juicy outside bets when it comes to the latest Golden Boot EPL betting odds.

Let’s look at the odds for the EPL Golden Boot via Bovada.

Odds to Win the 2020-21 Premier League Golden Boot
Harry Kane+400
Mo Salah+400
Jamie Vardy+500
Dominic Calvert-Lewin+1000
Son Heung-Min+1000
Timo Werner+1000
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang+1800
Ollie Watkins+2000
Raheem Sterling+2000
Sadio Mane+2000
Patrick Bamford+2500
Raul Jimenez+2800
Danny Ings+3300
Gabriel Jesus+3300
Bruno Fernandes+5000
Marcus Rashford+5000
Tammy Abraham+5000

Odds as of November 24 via Bovada

With the three favorites out ahead of the field, we’d take Harry Kane (+400) above Mo Salah (+400) and Jamie Vardy (+500), purely because he takes penalties and is irreplaceable. The same could be said for the other two, granted, but Salah can take the odd knock – and has already missed games with coronavirus – while Jamie Vardy is 34 in January.

Of the other candidates, we like the look of Timo Werner (+1000) and Danny Ings (+3300) from those listed above, with both men the focal point of their teams and unlikely to be dropped.

As ever, in a fortnight’s time we’ll return with the latest EPL winner odds as we find you the very best value in what is one of the most popular football betting markets out there.

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.

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.
