In the wake of Manchester City winning its next Premier League title in a row, chances have hit on the board to the 2019-20 Premier League year and once again, oddsmakers have tabbed the Citizens since the favorites to lift the trophy about one year from now.
Online shop Bovada opened City in -150 to win the next year’s league title while this year’s runner-up, Liverpool, is next at +275.
Liverpool pushed City to the final day, trusting for Pep Guardiola and his side to fall points away to Brighton, which, as most of us know, did not occur. City ended up dropping 4-1 while Liverpool trumped Wolves 2-0 at Anfield to finish the season one stage behind on 97 points. An extraordinary points haul regardless of the season.
Third about the oddsboard is Tottenham. Spurs finished fourth at the league on 71 points despite amassing just 11 in their closing dozen games of the campaign.
Manchester United is fourth at +1400 which is a bit surprising considering the way the Red Devils shut the campaign. United finished in sixth with 66 points and seems to be as dysfunctional under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as it was under Jose Mourinho.
Chelsea is following up at +2000 and is coming from a third-placed complete with 72 points. The Blues face a bit of a stern test next year since they are sitting on a move ban during the following two windows. This means that there will be no incoming transfers in summer time or winter however outgoings will be possible.
Additionally, if the latest rumors are to be believed, Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard is currently on his way to Real Madrid in a move which will be finalized after the Europa League final against Arsenal.
One thing to note is the promoted clubs in The Championship aren’t finalized as of yet. We know for certain that both Norwich and Sheffield United are coming after finishing first and second , but Leeds, West Brom, Aston Villa and Derby are in the playoff to decide who the next and last group will be.
