Premier League Outright Betting 2021/22
Premier League Betting Odds: Winners With Chelsea and Liverpool in particular anyone could make an argument that either team are good enough to win the Premier League this season. Indeed, with Chelsea just announcing the imminent signing of Romelu Lukaku from Inter they’re going to be even more capable of lifting the trophy next season. Liverpool too have their excellent strike force of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Robert Firmino and Diogo Jota and Virgil van Dijk is also returning to action after that awful injury last season. Man United probably aren’t the full deal yet, they had an excellent run of results under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season which ended with them losing the Europa League final on penalties but it looks like they’re still a few players short of mounting a sustained title challenge.
While arguments could be made for either of Liverpool or Chelsea to win the title this season, it’s an argument made without Manchester City being factored into it. Should they land Harry Kane it will surely shorten their odds to even lower and whatever value is currently there (we’d argue there isn’t) will be gone.
On a side note the betting on Kane leaving Spurs is interesting, we can see two very contrasting bets here. He’s odds on to stay at Tottenham this season with one bookie in this image and he’s also odds on to sign for Man City with three others and he’s odds on to not sign for anyone this season. What these odds are basically saying is that, at the time of writing, nobody has any idea what’s happening. Now, just imagine how many insiders the bookies know and the different connections the multitudes of them have with the clubs involved and still they don’t know. Time will tell.
Premier League Betting Odds: Relegation
No real surprises here when it comes to which teams are likely to be relegated this season. Three of the four favourites were promoted from the Champions last season, Norwich, Watford and Brentford. The next closest odds are Crystal Palace, of course, former Arsenal player Patrick Viera has taken the reigns from the retired Roy Hodgeson and, well, there’s no easy way to say this, Viera as a manager has been pretty awful at any of the clubs he’s managed and it could be a tough season for the faithful of Selhurst Park. Burnley and Newcaslte come next and as much as Burnley play long-ball, boring-hoofball tactic they’re not going to win over many fans but they’re good at what they do and barring a long run of bad results they’re unlikely too go down. Newcastle, on the other hand, are a mess of a club and a few bad results could see them parting ways with Steve Bruce and anything could happen then.
Premier League Betting: Top Goalscorer
This market could present some value. Harry Kane is the current favourite with Mo Salah just behind him. Kane has been the Golden Boot winner three times since 2015/16, while Mo Salah has won it twice, in 2017/18 and was joint winner in 2018/19. Should Kane get his move to Man City, this price should fall so it might be worth having an early punt and cashing it out as the season progresses or just waiting it out until the season ends.
