Premier League Outright Betting
Manchester City are bidding for a third consecutive Premier League title and the bookmakers aren’t willing to offer a big price about Pep Guardiola’s side landing a hat-trick at the end of the 2019/20 season.

Bet365 are just about the bravest with their 4/6 quote and many customers will look to put the Citizens in their season-long accumulators, especially as this bookmaker have an Early Payout offer for antepost bets.

Some will prefer the idea of backing Liverpool instead, with William Hill chalking up 9/4 that the Reds end a championship title drought which stretches back to 1990, with Jurgen Klopp’s side having finished agonisingly close to City last season.

The betting market certainly suggests it will be a two-horse race this season, although Tottenham were in the title hunt for the first half of the 2018/19 campaign and Paddy Power chalk up 16/1 that Spurs can bridge the gap and beat the “Big Two” to land the title.

Chelsea were the other team to land a top four spot in the Premier League last season and they will be led into battle by Frank Lampard who has taken his dream managerial role much earlier than he would have originally anticipated.

The Blues are available at 33/1 with Unibet to repeat their heroics of 2017 and finish as champions, although Eden Hazard has left for Real Madrid and Lampard will have to contend with a transfer embargo that could prove restrictive.

Despite having plenty of financial clout in the transfer market which has seen Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka arrive, it would be a surprise to find Manchester United challenge in the title and that is reflected in the Red Devils’ title odds of 33/1 (William Hill).

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a huge challenge to create a team in his own mould and that’s reflected by the fact that the Norwegian is among the favourites in the Premier League Sack Race market.

Arsenal were also way off the pace during the 2018/19 season and Unai Emery is under pressure to deliver with the Gunners now that he’s entering his second season in charge at the London club. He’s not been helped by club captain Laurent Koscielny angling for a move away from the Emirates.

Being in the Europa League rather than the Champions League might prove to be a benefit to Arsenal and you can get them at 50/1 with Paddy Power that they bounce back from a disappointing campaign by claiming the spoils in 2019/20.

Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers are other teams that could enter the reckoning, with the Toffees available at 200/1 with Paddy Power and they are assembling a squad that could well challenge for a place in the top six this season.

As for Wolves, they were the surprise package in the Premier League last season and look like they’ll be even stronger next term, with Unibet chalking up 200/1 about the Midlands side stunning the top teams with a title success.

Leicester City supporters know all about winning the trophy and Brendan Rodgers has been able to sign Youri Tielemans permanently, while Ayoze Perez has arrived at the club this summer too. The Foxes aren’t completely out of the question when it comes to a top four spot and bet365 go 300/1 about them repeating their heroics of 2016.

Premier League Relegation Betting
It’s no surprise to find promoted teams forming an orderly queue at the head of the 2019/20 Premier League relegation betting market, with Sheffield United the team regarded as the most likely to suffer an immediate return to the Championship.

The Blades are a best price 4/6 (William Hill) to go down, although Chris Wilder’s side did land automatic promotion last term and they’ve made a spate of new signings including Lys Mousset, Luke Freeman and Phil Jagielka.

Norwich City were crowned champions last term although the Canaries are only marginally bigger than United to suffer relegation at the first time of asking, with Daniel Farke’s side priced at even money with Paddy Power to be back in the Championship within one year.

There have been several new arrivals at Carrow Road although there hasn’t been much money spent as Farke looks to continue his organic approach to squad building, while Teemu Pukki will hope to continue to plunder goals.

As for the third promoted club, Aston Villa are surprisingly big at BetVictor’s odds of 2/1, with the Midlands outfit only just getting to the Premier League last season after coming through the Championship play-offs.

The Villans actually spent most of the season outside of the top six places, although there have been some big money captures including £22 million signing Wesley Moraes, while Tyrone Mings and Anwar El Ghazi have made their moves permanent after successful loan spells.

There are three established Premier League clubs who are shorter than Aston Villa in the relegation betting market and that predictably includes Burnley who are trading at 2/1 with William Hill. We know very well that Sean Dyche operates on a tight budget at Turf Moor although he’s previously done a sterling job of keeping the Clarets afloat.

Brighton & Hove Albion could be in a precarious position by next spring, with the Seagulls having hovered above the drop zone for much of the previous campaign, something which led to Chris Hughton being replaced by Graham Potter. The latter will now look to push the team towards the mid-table positions although odds of 2/1 with Ladbrokes suggest they are vulnerable.

The same accusation could be levelled at Newcastle United, with the Magpies having endured a typically tumultuous pre-season which has seen Rafael Benitez leave St James’ Park along with strike pairing Jose Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez.

Steve Bruce wasn’t a popular choice of manager among the Toon Army and things could turn toxic on Tyneside, although bet365 chalk up 9/4 for any customer who wants to back them on the Premier League relegation market and it makes appeal.

After the first six in the betting, there is then a big gap in the odds to Bournemouth who are trading at 5/1 with Unibet despite having several bad patches last season. Indeed, if the Cherries hadn’t enjoyed such a favourable start to the campaign, they could easily have been sucked into a relegation scrap.

Eddie Howe continues to keep the team safe for now, while Southampton are also in good hands thanks to Ralph Hasenhuttl being at the helm, with the Austrian having splashed the cash to secure the signatures of Danny Ings, Che Adams and Moussa Djenepo.

The Saints are 5/1 with BetVictor to be relegated, with Crystal Palace marginally bigger at 11/2 (William Hill) and much depends on whether Wilfried Zaha can be kept at Selhurst Park, with the Ivory Coast international attracting interest from Arsenal at the moment.

Watford are a 6/1 chance with Ladbrokes and it’s noticeable that the Hornets haven’t done any real business of note this summer, with Javi Gracia’s side potentially vulnerable if other teams become stronger. West Ham are the only other plausible relegation candidate and they’re priced at 14/1 with BetVictor.

Premier League Top Scorer Betting
There was a three-way tie at the top of the 2018/19 Premier League scoring charts, with Liverpool team-mates Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane sharing the honour with Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The trio finished with twenty-two goals in the top flight last term, although that was the lowest winning total since the 2010/11 season and we should expect next season’s Golden Boot winner to get closer to thirty goals altogether.

Harry Kane managed that number of Premier League goals during the 2017/18 season and the Tottenham captain is the 9/2 favourite with BetVictor to claim a third top scorer award after triumphing in 2016 and 2017.

The Spurs forward experienced an injury-hit season last time out although he still plundered seventeen goals and many will think the 25-year-old is an each-way bet to nothing considering he’s had a full pre-season behind him.

However, it should be noted that Salah is going for a consecutive hat-trick this season and the Liverpool man is likely to hit the ground running considering that Egypt suffered an early exit at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The former Roma player managed an amazing thirty-two goals during his maiden season for the Merseyside club and many will latch on to the 11/2 with bet365 that he continues his prolific ways and tops the charts come the end of the campaign.

Team-mate Mane is not expected to repeat last season’s heroics and Senegal’s run to the AFCON final could see the speedy forward miss the start of the domestic season, with BetVictor going 12/1 that the former Southampton man wins this heat.

That makes him fifth favourite in the Top Goalscorer market, with Sergio Aguero and Aubameyang trading at shorter prices and that’s hardly a surprise considering that they’re the main marksman for Manchester City and Arsenal respectively.

Aguero is remarkably consistent when it comes to finding the net. In the past two seasons, he has managed twenty-one goals in the Premier League, although the last and only time he won the Golden Boot was at the end of the 2014/15 season and that’s why you can get 6/1 with Paddy Power.

Aubameyang is 8/1 with bet365 and will look to build on last season’s bumper return, with the Gabon forward having spent part of last season coming off the bench for the Gunners although it appears that Unai Emery will give him more game time from the off.

We quite like the 16/1 with BetVictor that Raheem Sterling gets into the frame, with the Manchester City forward having managed seventeen goals last term after plundering eighteen during the twelve months previously. Perhaps he will develop the scoring side of his game even further.

Leicester City are sure to be attack-minded under Brendan Rodgers and that spells goals for Jamie Vardy who is trading at 20/1 with BetVictor to win a first ever Golden Boot, with Marcus Rashford available at an eye-catching 30/1 (Paddy Power) and it appears the England international is going to be the first choice striker for Manchester United.
