Betting on 2019/20 English Premier League Winner
According to the latest Betfred odds, Manchester City are 4/6 favorites to win the 2019/20 English Premier League. Liverpool are not far behind, at odds of 5/2. In other words, for every $1 or £1 a person wagers on Man City to win the 2019/20 EPL title, they would win 66 cents or pence. For every $1 or £1 a person wagers on Liverpool, they would win $/£1.50.
There was a huge gap between Man City, Liverpool, and the remaining 18 teams last season, and bookmakers are expecting more of the same next season. Betfred is offering 14/1 for a Tottenham EPL victory, followed by Chelsea, 20/1, Manchester United, 25/1, and Arsenal, 28/1.
Outside of the big six, the next contenders are Newcastle and Wolves, both 150/1. At the bottom we find Sheffield United and Norwich, who are both paying 2,000/1. These odds might seem crazy, but let’s not forget that Leicester City were paying as much as 5,000/1 at the beginning of their miracle 2015/16 title-winning season.
Betting on Top EPL Goal Scorer in 2019/20
Betfred has yet to release odds on the top EPL goal scorer in 2019/20, but other bookmakers such as William Hill and Sky Bet have released odds. The Premier League has seen some great strikes over the years. Goal scorer betting is a fantastic way to earn money betting on the EPL.
Tottenham’s Harry Kane is the current leader in the 2019/20 top goal scorer odds, at odds of 4/1 to 5/1. Just behind him are Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, Man City’s Sergio Aguero, and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Next are Liverpool’s Sadio Mane and Man City pair Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus. The top striker from outside the big six teams, not surprisingly, is Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, who finished runner-up in his team’s title year in 2015-16.
Other Premier League Betting Markets
Still looking for more Premier League betting action? Fortunately, there are many other EPL betting markets out there. With a couple of months till the season begins, online sportsbooks like Betfred have already opened markets on: relegation, top 4 finish, top finish, and to finish bottom. Top online sportsbooks are also offering markets on results from the opening match day.
Who are the favorites in all these betting markets? At time of writing, newly promoted Sheffield United were the favorite to finish bottom, at 7/2, followed by fellow promoted sides Norwich City, 7/2, and Aston Villa 11/2. Historically the team that finishes bottom isn’t necessarily one of the teams that was promoted the year before. Therefore, Burnley and Brighton, both 7/1 to finish bottom, would be feeling nervous going into the 2019/20 EPL season.
