English Premier League Odds to Win 2020

With two months remaining in the Premier League, Liverpool has this all wrapped up. It is not a matter of if, it is just a matter of when. The dominance of Liverpool has made the rest of the three Champions League spots the goal for many teams. Manchester City and Leicester are fairly safe to make it, but that fourth spot is going to be a real battle until the final day. This season has given us plenty of headlines, like Jose Mourinho taking over at Tottenham. Manchester United continue to underperform by their standards.

At this stage in the season, there is zero value or logic to betting on the Premier League winner. The Reds have yet to lose a game, and are over 20 points clear of second place Man City. There are just a shade over ten games left in the season, and we can look to ask the question if they will even lose a game? They still have their focus on other cups and the Champions League.

This is where we can turn our attention to. The race for the top four just got a bit more interesting with the Man City news. While this won’t be reflected within the top four betting format, Man City’s suspension for the Champions League makes the Premier League’s 5th spot a qualification spot. This takes some slight pressure of a few teams as it opens up two spots for the Champions League instead of just that final fourth spot. Manchester City and Leicester are near locks for the top four, so this is really looking at one team to finish inside the top four.

Chelsea Controls Their Own Destiny

After a few down years and a transfer ban lifted, Chelsea has a promising group of young players that are already starting to show their worth. Chelsea has tough matches ahead on their schedule, with crucial matches against Manchester United, Tottenham, Everton, Manchester City, Liverpool, and Sheffield United. We are going to see odds change quite frequently as these matches are determined. The Blues have a tough run in, and also the Champions League to focus on. Rotating the squad is going to be important, and securing three points against lower table teams will be as well. With Chelsea currently sitting in fourth, they control their own destiny.

Can Tottenham Find Consistency?

It has been an up and down year for the Spurs, and they are a bit lucky for where they are at. Out of the teams outside of the top four, Spurs have to be considered favorites to sneak in. The big absence of Harry Kane is going to make this road tougher, especially given they did not sign a true striker in the January transfer window. The Spurs will see a similar run in compared to Chelsea. They also have the Champions League and FA Cup to deal with. A big win against Man City to start February might have sparked the potential run they need.

Man United & Arsenal Struggling In Form

One club has seen a coaching change, while the other sticks by their man. Arsenal is sitting ten points out, and Manchester United are sitting six points out. The Red Devils have a chance to close that gap with matches against Chelsea and Tottenham in the next few weeks. Arsenal have a big mountain to climb, and this team is just not build to make a run at the top four. The defense remains a big liability. Manchester United have struggled to find consistency this season, and injuries have also plagued this team a bit. Overcoming the teams ahead is going to be a tough task.

Sheffield United & Wolves Looking To Strike

While they are not the most notable teams, Wolves have been a very good team over the last few seasons. Sheffield United were promoted this past season, and are looking to shock the football world a bit. We have seen down play from some of the big clubs, and Sheffield has taken advantage of it. Both of these teams play an exciting style of football, and neither shy away from the big clubs. Both will play each other in April, but Sheffield have big games against Spurs and Manchester United. They also face Wolves, Chelsea, Leicester, and Everton in four consecutive weeks. Wolves are in the Round of 32 for the Europa which will add some games into their schedule, and end the season at Chelsea. There looks to be some dropped points in the mix here.
