English Premier League 2019/20: Odds, Tips, and Predictions

English Premier League 2019/20: Odds, Tips, and Predictions

The EPL was a two-team race for the majority of the 2018/19 season, and the bookmakers are expecting a similar situation in the following season. The season kicks off on August 9 with an encounter between newly-promoted Norwich and the defending runners-up Liverpool. 

Liverpool finished the last season with a single point behind the league champion Manchester City, while the third-placed Chelsea had a whopping 25 points behind Jurgen Klopp’s team.  

Since the English Premier League generates a massive betting interest every year, here’s a comprehensive overview of teams to avoid and teams to watch in the 28th season of the Premier League. 

Teams to Favour 

You could probably do worse than toss a few bucks on Manchester United to find themselves on the top of the table during the holiday break. The 13-time EPL champions will play four of their six games against top-tier teams at Old Trafford, and won’t face a difficult stretch until the Christmas break. 

After the Christmas hiatus, they’ll visit Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, and Chelsea over a 10-week span. The Red Devils are +1600 favourites to be on the top of the table at Christmas. Since the odds vary significantly among the top bookmakers, we suggest that you go over all thebookiesoffers.co.uk betting offers, if you want to get the most value out of your bets.

There are two sets of future bets that are quite popular, and they come in the form of a 1-2 forecast. Given how big of a gap there was between Liverpool/Man City and the rest of the EPL teams in the previous season, it would be a surprise to see someone other than these two teams finish at the top of the rankings. A forecast in which Man City wins the EPL championship and Liverpool to place second is worth +125.  

Teams to Avoid 

Pretty much every Wolverhampton fan was thrilled about seeing their club go from promotion to the seventh-place showing in the EPL last season. But keeping up with that incredible performance could prove challenging for Wolves who now need to balance their domestic schedule with their matches in the UEFA Europa League, where they’ll have to face some of the best teams in the world. The Wolves are listed at +333 to finish the 2019/20 season outside the EPL’s big six — a bet definitely worth taking. 

The team that arguably has the biggest question mark is Brighton which barely avoided demotion to the Championship in 2018/19. However, they are expected to fix their biggest problem from the previous season — an ineffective offence that produced only 35 goals in 38 games. 

They brought in a new, young manager, Graham Potter, who is supposedly going to shake this team’s tree. However, we’re still not confident that Brighton will pay off on -225 odds to avoid the relegation zone yet again in 2019/20.

Top 4 Value Prediction 

It wasn’t all that long ago when Leicester City stunned the football world by winning the EPL championship. And while they didn’t manage to perform on a level nearly as high since then, there’s a lot to like about the 2019/20 version of this club. 

Despite the mid-season coaching change and the tragic death of the club’s owner, Leicester still managed to pull out a ninth-place finish. Leicester will have plenty of talent to go around, with Jamie Wardy and James Maddison leading the pack. They’re listed at +1600 to finish in the top 4.
