Premier League Odds: Winner, Top 4 and more

Manchester City Premier League

They call it the best soccer league in the world, and the ability to check out the odds and bet on it means the Premier League has even more appeal for U.S. fans right now.

Since PASPA was struck down by the SCOTUS in May 2018, Americans have been able to bet on soccer with a slew of online bookmakers in a number of states – and that number is only growing.

The battle for the title, the race to finish in the top four for Champions League places and the desperate survival fight at the bottom of the standings mean excitement from match week 1 through match week 38.

Some of the greatest soccer rivalries in the world provide epic sporting occasions – Manchester United vs Liverpool and Arsenal vs Tottenham are just two.

Currently big-spending Manchester City is headed for another Premier League title this season, while United tries to reclaim former glories and Liverpool struggles following that end of that 30-year title drought in 2020.

We’ll keep you right up to date with all of the major betting lines and update the odds each week. OddsCritic also has soccer specialists to add a dash of insight to help you pick the right wagers.

Premier League winner odds

There is nothing more exciting in soccer than two (or more) teams going right to the wire in the race for the Premier League title.

It’s been a couple of years since that happened though, with Liverpool dominating the 2019-2020 season and Manchester City absolutely surging clear at the top in the second half of this season.

City was 10 points clear of neighbors United with just six match weeks remaining and is a heavy favorite to stay top and win another title.

You won’t get rich betting Pep Guardiola’s all-star team. It is best odds of -9000 with FanDuel – bet $9000 to win just $100.

If you are one of the few experts who thinks City can collapse from this position, United is +12200 with BetAmerica to turn it round.

Premier League Top 4 Odds

The prize for a spot in the final Premier League standings is a huge one. A spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League.

Not only is Europe’s biggest club competition highly valued by all teams, it also brings massive TV revenues for all franchises involved.

City and United are well clear of the other team at the top and don’t rate as betting propositions. The battle for third and fourth though? Much more interesting.

Leicester City is third with 56 points, just one clear of West Ham in fourth. Chelsea is another single point back with Liverpool on 52 and Tottenham on 50. All pretty tight.

Best odds for those teams to make the top 4 are currently as follows:

  • -138 Chelsea (bet365)
  • -133 Leicester City (FOX Bet)
  • +265 Liverpool (BetAmerica, Resorts)
  • +485 West Ham (BetAmerica, Resorts)
  • +1800 Tottenham (widely available)

Premier League Relegation Odds

The battle to avoid the dreaded drop out of the Premier League is often the most exciting race of all. The prospect means financial meltdown for the unlucky teams = no more massive TV revenues.

Sheffield United is 10 points behind the nearest team at the foot of the standings – and a lock already to be relegated.

West Bromwich Albion and Fulham are also likely to make the drop – the latter is playing well but not picking up enough points. And still remains way behind the first safe team, which is Burnley

We’ll update on the latest betting to go down and stay up after the next slate of games goes final.

NBC holds the U.S. TV rights for the English Premier League. You can watch most of the games on NBCSN and the Peacock streaming service, while some games are screened on NBC as well.

How are the standings calculated in the Premier League?

Any team which wins a Premier League game receives three points in the standings. You get nada for losing. If the game ends in a draw after the full 90 minutes then both teams get one point each.

The team with the most points at the end of the season wins the Premier League title. The top four teams go into the UEFA Champions League for next season while after that there are Europa League places available.

How does promotion and relegation work in the Premier League?

The bottom three teams in the Premier League standings at the end of the season are all relegated to the next division down – the Championship.

They are replaced by the teams who finish in the top two Championship positions, and the winner of a four-team playoff between those franchises who finish between third and sixth.
