2020 EPL Odds Preview Week 7
We now approach week 7 of the 2019/20 Premier League season and are one slow step forward to see who will win the 2020 EPL Title. The top two teams in the league, Liverpool and Manchester City were victorious once again this week to stay first and second in the league, respectively.
Liverpool won a close 2-1 contest away to Chelsea while City recorded their biggest ever Premier League win, decimating Watford 8-0 at the Etihad Stadium. These two victories further separated these two clubs as the favorites to win the 2020 EPL Title away from the rest of the top 6.
Sportsbooks this week has Man City winning the league at odds opening at -137. This demonstrates City’s lowest odds to win the title since the start of the season. While, Liverpool’s odds to win the 2020 EPL Title at +138, according to sportsbooks. It’s been a steady decrease in terms of odds for Liverpool this season, who had odds of +150 to win the title just last week.
Liverpool’s form this season where they have won every single Premier League game, they’ve played alongside City’s obvious defensive deficiencies are the reason for the change of odds, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Liverpool is soon the sportsbooks favorites to win the title.
The EPL Odds and the Best of the Rest Looking to Capture the Title
After another loss, Tottenham Hotspur has dropped out of the top four and fallen to seventh in the league after losing 2-1 away to Leicester City who has now risen to third in the league.
