Liverpool are champions, Manchester City are 2nd in the Premier League
Chelsea, Leicester City and United are fighting for top 4 finish
Norwich are relegated, Aston Villa and Bournemouth still have a chance to stay up
Though the winner of the Premier League has been known for a long time there is still excitement left for the last rounds. Teams including Chelsea, Leicester City and Manchester United are fighting for a top 4 finish. While at the bottom Aston Villa and Bournemouth are trying to avoid relegation. In the Premier League special bets you can find odds for the most likely finishes, let’s see them now.
We already know that Liverpool are the 2019/20 champion and Manchester City finished second. After the decision of the Court of Arbitration for Sport which lifted the former 2-year UEFA ban on Manchester City, these two teams will definitely play in the Champions League next season. But the other two places with qualification to the UCL are still in question. Norwich are one of the relegated teams. But teams at the bottom are also fighting for safety and to remain in the Premier League next season.
Premier League special bets favor Chelsea and United to finish in top 4
Online sportsbooks in the UK are giving the smallest odds for Chelsea to finish in the top 4. Their odds is only 1.14 at Bet365 Sportsbook, which is understandable as the team is in 3rd place at the moment. They have a four-point lead ahead of Leicester City and Manchester United, but both teams played a game less. If they can win their games tonight, they will be only a point distance from the podium. The Blues will visit the home of Liverpool in the next round, which should be a big derby normally. But after Liverpool have already won the title, their concentration seems to be lacking in the last few games. So Lampard’s team has a chance to take point(s) from the champion. In the last round, they will host Wolverhampton which might be a tough game as the Wolves are also fighting for a top 6 finish.
The other big team, Manchester United are level on points with Leicester. They are behind them thanks to their goal difference. Still their chances to finish in the top 4 is better in the Premier League special bets with the odds of 1.25 at Bet365 Sportsbook. More routine and options in players can be in the favor of Solksjaer’s team, who will play against Crystal Palace tonight. Then they will host West Ham before meeting their biggest rival Leicester City in the last round. After the restart, Leicester have been struggling and only won one game out of the last seven. They need to win tonight against Sheffield and try not to lose against Tottenham. And then it can all be decided in the last game against Manchester United at home.
Fight at the bottom of league
Norwich will play in the Championship next season, but the name of the other two teams joining them is not known yet. Online gambling sites in the UK are predicting the current two teams in bottom places to be relegated. Aston Villa and Bournemouth with the odds of 1.12 and 1.14. So their fates look almost definite, even though Aston Villa played a game less. They are four points from safety, and will play against Everton, Arsenal and West Ham still. While the Cherries only have two more games against Southampton and Everton to catch current 17th-place Watford. Nigel Pearson’s men are also level on points with West Ham, but both teams still have three games to get the necessary points to stay in the Premier League. Watford’s odds to be relegated is 4.50 at Bet365 Sportsbook while West Ham has the odds of 10.00 to finish in the bottom three.
