The Chinese Super League is getting more and more attention due to their clubs’ high-profile transfers. This year, it looks like one of the three giants is going to put their hands on the title. While bookies believe Beijing Guoan are going to have the last laugh, we think Shanghai SIPG is more than capable to defend their title. Here are our 2019 Chinese Super League winner predictions and their betting odds.
Unsurprisingly, the Chinese Super League has been getting more and more attention lately. The main reason is that their biggest clubs are standing on a pretty stable ground financially, which allows them to sign some of the biggest stars in Europe. Paulinho, Oscar, Hulk, Bakambu, Talisca – all of them were pretty well known in the Old World before signing for their Asian clubs. This list could easily grow in the future as Chinese clubs are still in touch with some of the biggest European talents, putting insane offers on their table.
Therefore, we’ve decided to take a closer look at China’s first division. We’ve mostly examined the biggest clubs from a gambler’s perspective to come up with our Chinese Super League 2019 winner predictions. The first round took place on 1 March, while the last match day is on 1 December, so there’s still some time to decide and make a wise bet on one of the local giants. While bookies believe Beijing Guoan are going to finish on top, our pick’s Shanghai SIPG due to their great odds at Unibet.

Chinese Super League 2019 winner predictions show Beijing Guoan are the absolute favorites
Online sportsbook sites in China argue that Beijing Guoan are the favorites this year. They’ve had a great first half of the season which puts them on the top of the table. In 2018 they’ve only finished 4th, though they’ve managed to win the Chinese FA Cup. That’s obviously some nice silverware to be proud of.
One of Beijing Guoan’s key players is Cedric Bakambu. You probably know him if you’re a FIFA player – he’s an absolute beast in Ultimate Team. His price has never been above a few thousand coins either. What an absolute bargain. Bakambu is also tearing his opponents apart in real life, the guy scored 4 goals for Beijing in just 4 games this year, while he also has 3 assists as well. He’s currently away playing for DR Congo at the Africa Cup of Nations, just scored a double against Zimbabwe. The man’s on fire.
Shanghai SIPG’s title-defending season pays well
Last year’s winners, Shanghai SIPG are currently in the 3rd position on the league table. However, they’re only 2 points behind the two other Chinese giants, Beijing Guoan and Guangzhou Evergrande. Looking at their magnificent squad and their achievements from last year, it’s pretty weird how their odds are at 4.50 at Unibet Sportsbook right now. Remember, they’re the club who’ve nicked Oscar from Chelsea and Hulk from Zenit. Our Chinese Super League 2019 Winner Predictions show that it looks wise to place a cheeky bet on Shanghai SIPG to defend their title.
