Man City Shade Liverpool Atop Bookies’ Premier League Odds
The early EPL odds for the 2020-21 Premier League season suggest a two-horse race for the title between the last two champions, Liverpool and Manchester City, writes Nick Dorrington.
The pair have set a scintillating pace over the last few seasons, between them achieving the four highest points totals in the Premier League era. Man City won the title with 100 points in 2017-18 and then with 98 in 2018-19, with Liverpool second on 97. Liverpool won with 99 last season.
That points haul saw the Anfield club end their 30-year wait for a 19th top-flight league title in fine style in a campaign they dominated from start to finish. They didn’t lose a match until February, by which time their record of 26 wins and one draw had given them an almost unassailable lead at the top. They ended the season a full 18 points clear of City in second.
Liverpool are certain to again be in the running, but Man City are probably worthy of their status as early bookmakers betting favourites in the Premier League odds. They had better metrics last season and even though their play style does seem to leave them more open to surprise defeats (they lost nine times to Liverpool’s three), they can at least be expected to secure more points than they did last time out. That, and superior investment in their squad, will possibly give them the slight edge.
Manchester United and Frank Lampard’s Chelsea finished third and fourth respectively last season but were both 33 points shy of champions Liverpool. Even if the points haul required to claim the title decreases by 10 or more points that is still an awful lot of ground to make up in a single season, even, in Chelsea’s case, with huge off-season investment to improve the squad.
Those reinforcements make Chelsea the favourites to claim third this time around, with Man Utd again likely to be the other top four occupant. They produced good results at the back end of last season, and even though those weren’t supported all that strongly by the underlying metrics, still look well-placed to make the top four again. This is reflected by the best of the UK bookies having both them and Chelsea comfortably odds-on to take top-four spots.
Arsenal seem to be the favoured choice of many to challenge the incumbent top four. That is partly due to the promise shown in the victories over Manchester City and Chelsea that saw them win the FA Cup. Also there is an assumption that they will get progressively better the more time coach Mikel Arteta has to work with them, and partly because between deals already completed and other potential signings, their squad should look more rounded.
That is a lot of ‘ifs’ for a team who didn’t really show many signs of improvement in their underlying metrics after Arteta replaced Unai Emery in mid-season. It is quite possible they will finish higher than last season’s eighth, but both punters and some of the publicly available statistical models seem to have more confidence in them than may be justified.
In that context, Leicester are arguably a better bet to be best of the rest, and perhaps even again challenge for a top-four berth. Only a terrible collapse through the second half of the season saw them miss out on Champions League football last season, and they have a good, young squad, improving together and capable of another strong campaign.
Others likely to be in the top-six picture include a solid, well-drilled Wolverhampton Wanderers side. Then there is an Everton team who had decent metrics despite their 12th-place finish last season and have again spent big to add to their squad, including a couple of eye-catching purchases. Tottenham Hotspur, who haven’t shown many signs of improvement since Jose Mourinho took charge in November 2019, do have enough talent to remain in the hunt.
Sheffield United and Burnley will hope to replicate last season’s top 10 finishes, with competition coming from an increasingly solid Southampton team, and perhaps even Leeds if everything clicks in their first season back in the top flight after 16 years away. The Championship winners are arguably one of the teams with the largest variance in possible finishing position: neither top half nor a relegation battle is out of the question.
Candidates For Drop Based On Premier League Relegation Odds
The other two promoted teams, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion, look prime candidates to go down and the Premier League relegation odds concur. Both seemed to lean on their underlying talent level in the Championship and their lack of clearly defined systems will make life very tough for them in the top flight.
Aston Villa found that to be the case last season after going up through the playoffs. They were just able to sneak themselves another year in the top flight with a final-day draw that saw them stay up by a point. They have again spent heavily in this off-season but it remains to be seen whether that will be enough to pull away from the pack at the bottom and the bookies early EPL relegation betting has them in the bottom three.
That leaves Brighton, Crystal Palace, West Ham and a Newcastle side who had dreadful underlying numbers last season, as other potential relegation candidates who could just as easily finish comfortably in mid-table.
