Premier League Betting: The Season So Far

As the latest round of international football matches draws to a close let's all take a moment to catch our breath before the return of domestic football at the weekend. Here at Compare Betting Sites we take a look at the season so far, from a betting perspective of course! Here we take a look at those Premier League teams and players that have so far failed to deliver, the season’s surprise packages and the much-fancied picks that have hit the ground running. 


Manchester City and Liverpool – A Cut Above 


The Premier League’s top two from last season were tipped to challenge for the title again this time around and early season form indicates the leading pair could be just as dominant once again. Liverpool are currently top of the league having won all four matches so far, averaging three goals a game. Meanwhile, holders Manchester City sit second after winning three and drawing one in their first game. Only a dubious VAR decision late in game against Spurs has cost City their own perfect start. 


With both City and Liverpool expected to challenge for the Premier League title, the outright winner odds are relatively unchanged. City are the odds-on favourites to claim a third consecutive Premier League title with Unibet’s 11/25 the best price currently available. Rivals, Liverpool, are a 5/2 shot with most bookmakers whilst it’s 66/1 the field. 


Top Four Challengers 


The Premier League’s so-called Big Six were expected to compete for the four Champions League qualification spots however predicting the top four may not be as easy as many would’ve expected. According to the bookies, Man City and Liverpool are near-certainties to finish in the top four and are priced at 1/100 and 1/41 respectively however, the two remaining Champions League spots are up for grabs. North London duo, Spurs (11/20 with Unibet) and Arsenal (11/10 with Black Type) are the next best in the market with Black Type also offering the best odds on both Manchester United and Chelsea at 7/4 and 3/1 respectively. 


However, with so many of the Big Six under-performing or going through a transitional phase it is believed that this could be the season we see one of the chasing pack break up their domination. You can back Leicester City to finish in the top four at 9/1 with Black Type and BetVictor whilst Everton will attract plenty of support at 12/1. 


New Boys Cannot Be Taken Lightly 


During pre-season the prospect of new boys, Norwich City and Sheffield United avoiding an immediate return to the Sky Bet Championship seemed unlikely. Both sides were expected to be cut adrift at the bottom of the league table but a couple of encouraging early-season results have seen their odds ease slightly. Norwich City are still the bookies’ favourites for the drop but a comfortable win at home against Newcastle United as a spirited display in losing to Chelsea mean The Canaries are now 6/4 for relegation. 


Sheffield United have been even more impressive in the opening month, beating Crystal Palace at Bramall Lane whilst claiming deserved draws away at both Bournemouth and Chelsea. Odds on The Blades to be relegated have drifted out from odds-on to 7/4. 


After beginning the campaign with one point from a possible twelve, Watford have been the big movers in the relegation betting markets. The Hornets started the season as big as 12/1 with some bookmakers to finish in the bottom three however they are now just 5/2. Watford’s hopes haven’t been helped by the news that captain, Troy Deeney, will be out for at least another month. 


The Sack Race 


After Watford’s dismal start to the current campaign, manager, Javi Gracia, became the first managerial casualty during the international break, Gracia had been the bookies’ favourite to be the first manager to be axed but few expected him to be replaced by the returning Quique Sanchez Flores. Flores was in charge of Watford for the 2015/16 season and begins his second stint as boss against Arsenal at Vicarage Road on Sunday. 


In the betting for the next Premier League manager to leave their post, Gracia’s dismissal has blown the market wide open. Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is now the bookies’ favourite to depart after failing to win in the league since the opening weekend. Solskjaer is now available at 6/1 with BetVictor to be the next manager to leave his post. Next in the market is Newcastle United boss, Steve Bruce (7/1) whilst the future of Spurs manager, Mauricio Pochettino, is the subject of much speculation. Such is the uncertainty surrounding Pochettino, the Tottenham boss is just 4/1 with Ladbrokes and Coral to leave North London whilst he is 16/1 with Betfair and Paddy Power. 


Surprise Dark Horses in Golden Boot Race


Sergio Aguero is now the clear 4/1 favourite to claim this season’s Golden Boot having found the net six times in the league already this season. The usual suspects follow Aguero in this particular market with Harry Kane (5/1), Mo Salah (11/2), Raheem Sterling (6/1) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (9/1) all prominent. However, there are two big movers in the Golden Boot market after both Tammy Abraham and Teemu Pukki picked up where they left off in last season’s Sky Bet Championship campaign. Abraham’s odds have shortened from 66/1 to 25/1 after scoring four times in August. Premier League Player of the Month, Teemu Pukki, went one better with five league goals in August, seeing his Golden Boot odds slashed from 80/1 to just 28/1. With each-way bets still paying out for four places both Pukki and Abraham continue to attract plenty of support.
