EPL Title Race Betting Predictions Week 12

With twelve weeks of Premier League football under our belts, we analyze the trends of the ever-changing EPL title odds. 

Liverpool should count themselves lucky leaving West London with a point as they fought to a 1-1 draw with a resurgent Fulham side.

Liverpool once again went behind in the first half as Bobby Decordova-Reid netted his fourth league goal of the season with a powerful strike that proved too much for Liverpool keeper’ Alisson to handle.

Fulham had several chances to double their lead but was unable to convert their chances to put the game out of sight.

It did look like Fulham were on their way to three points over the champions, but Liverpool was handed a lifeline as they were awarded a penalty 10 minutes from time; a penalty Mohamed Salah converted for his 10th of the season.

Liverpool could have gone top of the league with a win but instead remain second and level on points with league leaders Tottenham Hotspur.

Liverpool returns to second favorites to win the 2020/21 EPL Title at odds of +200.

Tough Times for Arsenal

Time is quickly running out for Mikel Arteta who may not be in a job this time next week as Arsenal suffered a 1-0 defeat to Burnley: their fourth consecutive home loss this season.

It’s the first time that’s happened since 1959 and morale is seriously low at the Emirates. Before the game, Burnley were residing in the relegation zone and had just one win to their name but a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang own goal aided Burnley in their claim for a desperately needed three points.

It was Nicolas Pepe two weeks ago who let down Arsenal with his red card against Leeds United, yesterday it was Granit Xhaka who was sent off, a sending off Mikel Arteta said was “even worse” than Pepe’s.

Arsenal faces Southampton, Everton and Chelsea in their next three games as the situation at Arsenal could get worse if possible.

Arsenal now possesses the eighth-best odds to win the 2020/21 Premier League Title at +20000 and if we were ever to start a relegation race weekly piece, Arsenal would be frontrunners.

Manchester City fought to a majorly disappointing 0-0 draw with Manchester United in a forgettable Manchester derby.

Some people have said it was the worst Manchester derby of all time as both sides were void of creativity, passion and any real urge to win the game.

Both managers seemed to be content with a draw and it suits two sides who haven’t had the greatest of campaigns this season.

It is a third clean sheet in a row for Pep Guardiola and City who finally have some sort of defensive solidity after £300 million of spending (not a dig).

City Still Favorites

Despite the lethargic performance and one that wouldn’t have you raving about Manchester City, they returned as the oddsmaker’s favorites to win the 2020/21 EPL Title at +163.

It’s five games unbeaten for Manchester United who drew 0-0 with city rivals Manchester City.

After crashing out of the UEFA Champions League just days before, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer simply could not afford another defeat and looked to set his team up to be difficult to play through and manage the game rather than take control.

United are just three points off the top four and could go ahead of a fifth-placed Chelsea side should they win their game in hand.

Manchester United’s odds to win the title now sits at +1800, only the fifth-best in the Premier League.

Chelsea’s nine-match unbeaten streak in the Premier League has finally come to an end as they fell to a 1-0 defeat away to Everton.

Gylfi Sigurdsson’s first-half penalty was enough to secure all three points for an Everton side desperate for points.

Chelsea’s upcoming schedule is a difficult one and will once again test their potential title credentials as they face the likes of Wolves, Arsenal, and Manchester City in their next five fixtures over the winter period.

Chelsea possesses the fourth-best odds to win the 2020/21 EPL Title this season at +650.

Tottenham Looking Strong 

We end this article with the club that currently reigns supreme in the Premier League for the third consecutive week and that is Tottenham Hotspur.

It was two points dropped from Tottenham this weekend as they drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace.

Harry Kane scored his ninth goal of the Premier League season in the first half and the club was 10 minutes away from going two points clear at the top of the table before Jeffrey Schlupp’s late equalizer assured they stay level on points with Liverpool.

The result sets up their clash with Liverpool on Wednesday in even better stead in what will prove to be a fabulous game of football to watch.

For now, Spurs’ title odds sit at +600, the third-ranked in the Premier League alongside Chelsea.

With the win, Liverpool stayed level on points with Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the table.

Liverpool return as odds-on favorites to win the 2020/21 EPL Title at odds of +175.

Tough Times for Arsenal

This could be Arsenal’s last appearance in this weekly piece as they suffered yet another defeat, this time at the hands of North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur 2-0. It was another noticeable dejected performance from Arsenal who didn’t even look close to scoring a goal let alone winning the game.

They’ve dropped to 15th in the table in December which means it’s no longer just poor form after a few games, we’re almost midway through the season and Arsenal have been consistently bad since October.

The whispers in the media have already begun on the future of Mikel Arteta and if he really is the future of Arsenal.

Arsenal now possess the seventh-best odds to win the 2020/21 Premier League Title at +20000.

Manchester City has earned consecutive league victories for the first time this season as they eased past Fulham 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne were on the scoresheet for City who rose to seventh in the table and can go fourth if they win their game in hand against Manchester United in the Manchester derby this weekend.

Luck is starting to present itself on Man City’s side after a difficult few months with results and injuries.

Sergio Aguero made his long-awaited return from an injury setback to score in their 3-0 win over Marseille in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday and will be raring to start in the Manchester derby; a fixture the Argentine has scored nine goals in.

City are the second favorites to win the 2020/21 EPL Title at odds of +200. 

It’s four consecutive wins in a row for Manchester United, the joint longest winning streak this season after a 3-1 win away to West Ham United.

It was another comeback for United who went 1-0 in the first half after Tomas Soucek’s first half opener.

With Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford coming on at half-time, United were revitalised and scored three goals in 13 minutes with goal scorers Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford all finding the net.

Manchester United’s odds to win the title now sits at +2000, only the fifth-best in the Premier League.

It’s four wins in five games for Chelsea who dispatched Leeds 3-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Olivier Giroud continued his purple patch with the equalizer after former Chelsea man Patrick Bamford put the visitors ahead after just four minutes.

Kurt Zouma scored his fourth goal of the season to put Chelsea ahead in the second half before Christian Pulisic scored his first league goal of the season in stoppage team to put the game beyond Leeds.

Chelsea possess the third-best odds to win the 2020/21 EPL Title this season at +500.

We end this article with the club who currently reign supreme in the Premier League for the second consecutive week and that is Tottenham Hotspur.

What better weekend could it have been for Spurs fans to not just go back to the top of the league but to do it after defeating their bitter rivals Arsenal 2-0 in the North London derby.

It was a spectacular goal from Heung Min-Son to put Spurs ahead before Harry Kane made it 2-0 before half-time and became the leading scorer in North London derby history with 11 goals.

It was yet another assured performance from Jose Mourinho and his side as they continue to defy the doubters about their position in the Premier League.

For now, Spurs’ title odds sit at +550, the joint third highest in the Premier League alongside Chelsea.

EPL Title Race Betting Predictions for Gameweek Nine

With eight weeks of Premier League football under our belts, we analyze the trends of the ever-changing EPL title odds.

Defending Premier League champions Liverpool escaped the Etihad Stadium with a point after a hard-fought draw against Manchester City.

The draw made it four games unbeaten in the Premier League since their historic 7-2 loss to Aston Villa.

It was Liverpool who opened the scoring after they were awarded a penalty with Kyle Walker bringing down Mohamed Salah in the box. The Egyptian converted the penalty in what was his eighth goal of the season, sitting atop the golden boot rankings alongside Heung-Min Son and Dominic Calvert Lewin.

City hit back under 20 minutes later as Gabriel Jesus finished off a great piece of skill to get past Trent Alexander-Arnold and finish past Alisson. The hosts were given a golden chance to go ahead as they were awarded a penalty a few minutes before half-time.

Kevin De Bruyne stepped up and to everyone’s surprise, put the penalty wide and didn’t even test Alisson.

The draw kept Liverpool second favorites to win the 2020/21 EPL Title according to sportsbooks where their odds open at +163.

Arsenal EPL Title Odds for Gameweek Nine

Arsenal were out-fought, out-matched and out-classed by Aston Villa who embarrassed them 3-0 on Arsenal’s turf.

It was a performance reminiscent of the last days of Arsene Wenger’s reign and the entirety of Unai Emery’s stint in charge. It was Arsenal’s fourth loss of the season and second at home.

A Bukayo Saka own goal and an impressive brace from Ollie Watkins was enough to claim the three points for the visitors who sit 6th in the table with a game in hand as their surprisingly impressive start to the season continues.

It’s Arsenal’s third loss in four games with just one goal scored in that span, and none scored from open play.

Arsenal’s lack of creativity is a far cry from the Arsenal that has been around for decades and it’s a problem that Mikel Arteta must fix and fix quickly.

Arsenal possess the seventh-best odds to win the 2020/21 Premier League Title at +6600.

Manchester City EPL Odds: The Favorites… For Now?

Manchester City may find themselves unlucky to leave the Etihad with just a point in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool after Kevin De Bruyne missed a penalty.

It was an evenly matched game, but City had the opportunity to go 2-1 ahead in the first half with the penalty that De Bruyne shockingly put wide.

The draw means that City sit 10th in the table with a game in hand and they’ve yet to score consecutive wins in the Premier League this season. City have also scored just one goal in each of their last five games as the loss of Sergio Aguero to injury as hurt their goalscoring ability.

City however remain favorites to win the EPL title for the third week in a row at +150.

After going two games without a win, a 3-1 win against Everton eased the pressure on Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Bruno Fernandes scored a brace and Edinson Cavani netted his first goal in Manchester United colors to condemn Everton to their third loss in a row.

Despite the win, Manchester United remain a lowly 14th in the table with a game in hand.

Manchester United’s odds to win the title now sits at +2500, only the fifth-best in the Premier League.

Chelsea followed up their 3-0 rout of Burnley with a 4-1 thrashing of Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea had four different scorers in Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Timo Werner to extend Chelsea’s unbeaten record to six games.

With the introduction of Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell and Edouard Mendy to Chelsea’s backline, not only have their defensive performances massively improved with three clean sheets in their last five league games as well as Chelsea yet to concede after three games in the Champions League but they’ve also added goals.

Kurt Zouma, Chilwell and Silva have contributed to six goals already this season, the highest in the division among defenders.

Chelsea possess the third-best odds to win the 2020/21 EPL Title this season at +800.

Tottenham Hotspur so far look like Liverpool’s closest rivals for the Premier League title as they rose to second in the league after their 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion. Harry Kane’s late winner was enough for all three points with Tottenham now on a three-match winning streak.

The North London club look to be a real contender for the Premier League crown this season however we will learn just how real their credentials are as they face Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool in four of their next five league games in clashes that could define their season.

For now, Spurs’ title odds sit at +900, the third highest in the Premier League.
