We can find familiar clubs in the best English women’s football teams as in the men’s. Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City are fighting for the title this season. Arsenal are the reigning champions, but their biggest rivals are following them closely. Let’s see the FA women’s Super League betting odds to win the 2019-20 championship.
In the women’s Super League the best 12 English women teams are playing. Though it doesn’t have such a long history as the men’s one, it has been improving year by year. It replaced the former FA Women’s Premier League in 2010, and since then the number of teams increased from 8 to 12. What is even more important, Barclays has become the main sponsor of the league thanks to a three-year deal worth more than £10 million. So hopefully we can see an even better-leveled championship with exciting games in front of more and more fans.
Chelsea are the favorite in the FA Women’s Super League betting odds
Though Arsenal are the most successful team with three wins over the last 10 years, they are not the top favorites by online sportsbooks in the UK to win this season. Chelsea took their place, with the odds of 2.00 at 1xBet. The South London side is currently in third place, only one point behind leader Manchester City and Arsenal, and with one less game played. They are still unbeaten this season, which can explain why they are the favorites. Also, their previous results, as they’ve won the league twice before and finished as runner-ups two more times.
The Blues managed to beat Arsenal this season twice now, with a 4-1 victory at the home of Arsenal in the previous round. With these results, Chelsea confirmed that they are a serious contender for the title. Of course, Arsenal won’t just leave it to happen, and with almost half of the season still ahead, the standing can change anytime. The women’s team is definitely doing better than the men’s at the Gunners, but they should win against their rivals as well if they want to defend their title. Their odds to do so is 2.375.
Can Manchester City win at the women’s?
It looks like the title hopes for the men’s team at Manchester City are gone now, with Liverpool leading confidently. But the women’s team still has a chance to win the league, with the odds of 3.24. They also have two losses so far against Chelsea and Arsenal, with two games against Arsenal waiting for them this week. The results of these games can be crucial to decide the title, surely they will do everything to win them.
With the lead of captain Steph Houghton, who has more than 100 appearances in the English national team, they can fight for the victory. And while Arsenal has to perform in many different competitions from the Champions League to the Super League, Manchester City and Chelsea can concentrate on winning the title.
Online gambling sites in the UK are not mentioning any other team as a real candidate to win this season, with fourth-place Manchester United having the odds of 51.00. But it makes total sense as they are 15 points behind the leaders. So the new champion should come from the mentioned top 3 teams this year as well.
