Premier League Odds as City suffers a stunning loss

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.

Big-spending Manchester City is coming off yet another Premier League championship, and it has also added highly-prized Norwegian hotshot Erling Haaland to its loaded roster.

Premier League winner odds

Ladies and gentlemen, we have ourselves a title race. Incredible.

City had been very short odds after starting the season in terrific form with the aforementioned Haaland scoring goal after goal. But at the weekend things changed bigtime.

The Blues fell 2-1 at home to lowly Brentford, allowing Arsenal to go five points clear at the top as two Martin Odegaard goals gave the Gunners a 2-0 win at Wolves.

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. In reality this is what teams like Arsenal, Manchester United, Newcastle – and even Tottenham and Chelsea – are playing for in 2022-23.

City of course is a lock already to finish in the top 4, and Arsenal is very short odds to be there too. As for the rest of the chasing pack though, nothing is certain. Newcastle United continues to be the big mover, in to +140 now.

Best odds for those teams to make the English Premier League top 4 are:

  • -10000 Manchester City
  • -1600 Arsenal
  • -150 Liverpool
  • +125 Tottenham Hotspur
  • +135 Manchester United

Premier League FAQ

When does the Premier League play its games?

The Premier League season – at least pre-pandemic – runs from August through to May. There are 20 teams in the league and each team plays the other 19 both home and away. A total of 38 games for each team.

Most of the games take place on weekends, starting around lunchtime in the UK (breakfast time in the U.S.). There are also some night games during the week – with high-profile matchups often taking place on Mondays and Fridays.

How can I watch the Premier League on TV in the U.S.?

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.
