Premier League Title Odds

The Premier League odds for the title this season belong to Manchester City. They are a massive favorite at . Manchester City has brought in Jack Grealish in the transfer window for a whopping 100 pounds. Harry Kane has also been linked to moving from Tottenham, with Manchester City being the only real contender who can afford him at this point. Bringing back essentially the same team as the last few years, it would be a bit of a surprise if they didn’t win the title.

Liverpool is the interesting name behind City, sitting at odds to win the title. Premier League odds are always going to favor the big six, but Liverpool was entering another tier before the Virgil van Dijk injury.

But he has made a full return, and Liverpool’s defense should be at the level during their title-winning season. Starting from the back, Alisson Becker did have some blunders last season, which were a bit uncharacteristic for him. However, I wouldn’t put much stock into it as he is one of the top keepers in Europe.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, and Andy Robertson make up an incredible backline when they are at full strength. Pairing this with their front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino, this is a team that can contend with City.

Chelsea would be the next in terms of teams to challenge Manchester City. Premier League odds tend to always be favorable for Chelsea as they are a team with a ton of money and are not afraid to splash the cash. They are coming off a top-four season, which they did scrape by, but beat Manchester City in the Champions League Final.

Manchester City Premier League Odds Chelsea has odds to win the title. Thomas Tuchel took over midway through last season and immediately changed Chelsea’s season. This was also a team that splashed the cash after their transfer ban. Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, and Hakim Ziyech all had their moments but didn’t fully click, which is scary. N’golo Kante and Mason Mount were a massive part of their success last season.

Manchester United has been in the news this transfer window, bringing in Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varene. This adds to a squad that finished the season strong but was very inconsistent. Oddsmakers don’t give them a strong chance to compete with City but are at to win the title. United will have a focus in Europe and finishing the top four. It will only be a matter of time before they make a massive splash in the transfer market.

North London has been in shambles. Arsenal has been stuck as a midtable club for the last few years, while Tottenham has been trending down in a major way since their Champions League final appearance. Harry Kane has been subject to transfer drama while they try and start another new era under Nuno Espirito Santos, who managed at Wolves. Spurs are at to win the title.

They are in a turnover with their backline but have made some smart moves in the offseason. However, not enough of them will make them instant title contenders. Tottenham will be in a top-four fight, alongside Arsenal, who are to win the title. Arsenal did sign Ben White from Brighton, but like Spurs, this is not a team ready to compete for a title.

Premier League Relegation Odds

The dreaded Premier League relegation is going to be a battle between the newly promoted teams, like Norwich, Brentford, and Watford. Brentford has now made it to the Premier League for the first time in their club’s history.

They have a young backline that will give up a ton of goals, but Brentford should play on the front foot with a need for goals. Despite the team winning the playoffs over Swansea, they are to head back down to the English Championship.

Watford finished second in the Championship last season and is to head back to the Championship. Watford has bounced around over the last decade and has some players with Premier League experience. However, the team is nowhere near the competition of the Premier League.

Norwich won the Championship last season and has been in and out of the Premier League. Teemu Pukki is a solid goalscorer, and Todd Cantwell is a solid offensive player. However, Emi Buendia and Oliver Skipp will not return and were a big part of their success. Norwich is to head back down.

Some teams managed to stay up last year, despite being in the bottom three at times. Crystal Palace, Burnley, and Newcastle are the teams to keep an eye on. You can get some positive value on them because they are not the newly-promoted teams. Crystal Palace continues to be in disarray and struggled last season. They are to go down. Burnley has been a fringe relegation team and is to go down.

Newcastle is to go down, but I would expect they stay up despite flirting with the bottom three most of the year. Wolves, Southampton, and Brighton, should be good enough to stay up.

Premier League Golden Boot Odds

Harry Kane is always the first name to talk about when it comes to the Golden Boot. He is to win the Golden Boot this tear. He won last season and also had back-to-back golden boots in 2015/26 and 2016/17. There have been a few players to tie of late, as Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tied in 2017/18. Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah tied in 2018/19. Jaime Vardy won outright. The recent golden boot tallies have been 23, 23, 22, 22, 22, 32, and 29.

After Kane, Salah is the next name to watch in a potent Liverpool attack. He is to finish as the leading scorer. There is a big dropoff after that with Timo Werner, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, and Sadio Mane. Injuries tend to be the thing that derails scorers. Kane has generally missed time each year, which is always something to note. There is some value with Jaime Vardy at and Danny Ings at .
