As the new, 2021/22 Premier League season’s calendar has just been released. So fans of English football can already plan ahead for the biggest derbies. And of course, bookmakers are not behind and offer different options to bet on. From the winner of the new season to the relegated teams, these are the most interesting 2021/22 Premier League special bets.
The new Premier League season will begin on the 14th of August with some great games to be held already on the opening weekend. Like the match between defending champions Manchester City and Tottenham, who are still without a permanent manager. Whoever takes the job, he won’t have an easy task to start against the champions. Pep Guardiola’s team is in the top favorites to win the title again, along with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United. While in the bottom, freshly promoted Norwich and Brentford can fight against relegation. In the following special bets you can bet on the combinations of these teams, let’s see the most likely options.
2021/22 Premier League special bets favor City to win
The first option in the 2021/22 Premier League special bets is to predict the winner and one of the relegated teams of the season. Online sportsbooks in the UK offer the smallest odds, 2.80 for the combination of Manchester City’s win and the survival of Norwich. City’s sixth title is very likely even though some key players, including Sergio Aguero have left the team. But Pep Guardiola is still their manager with a very deep squad who are favored to win the league. Norwich on the other hand will face a tough task to avoid relegation.
Just like Brentford, who qualified to the top league after a 74-year absence. It is very difficult to adapt to the higher level of the competition in the Premier League to all newcomers. Which can also affect the third promoted team, Watford’s season. Bookmakers predict Brentford to be the weakest and offer the odds of 3.30 for City’s PL win and Brentford’s relegation. But if you think that Newcastle United will struggle again this season, you can also bet on the relegation of Norwich and Newcastle with odds of 7.00.
Bet on teams finishing in top 4/6
If you don’t want to guess the winner of the season, you can also bet on the teams finishing in the top 6. If you think Leicester and Tottenham will be one of them, don’t miss to bet on this option with odds of 4.00. The Foxes were close to finishing in the top 4 last season but missed it at the end. While Tottenham saved its disastrous season with a 7th-place finish. Which also meant a place in the new Europa Conference League play-off. Now surely Spurs will aim for a better result and top 6 seems like an achievable goal.
Online gambling sites in the UK offer the chance to bet on a specific club’s performance. Like betting on Chelsea winning the league and conceding the fewest goals. The Blues won the 2021 Champions League thanks to their brilliant defense. So they can easily repeat it in the PL as well. But if you think Liverpool will come back strongly and go unbeaten in all 38 games, you can win a small fortune with odds of 26.00. A more likely option is to bet on Liverpool winning the title and Norwich to be relegated. Which has the odds of 13.00 on 22Bet.
