English Premier League 2019/20 Season: Title Contenders, Top Four, Underdogs, Relegation & BookMakers Prediction

English Premier League 2019/20 Season: Title Contenders, Top Four, Underdogs, Relegation & BookMakers Prediction

English Premier League is the top-tier league of the English football league system and is one of the top five leagues in Europe. The season of 2019/20 will be the 28th season of the Premier League.
It starts August 9, 2019 and ends May 17, 2020.

The league is also the most watched sports league in the world and it is the toughest league to qualify to the Champions Leaguefrom. There are many teams with quality to play in European Competition, specially the big 6, which makes it extremely difficult to finish inside the top 4 and play Champions League football in the following season. The quality of the Premier League was seen by the whole world in the 2018/19 season as we witnessed two all English finals in both the European competitions.

For the second season in a row, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City will enter the season as odds-on favorites to win the English Premier League title.
Manchester City (-200) are odds-on favorites to win the 2019-2020 English Premier League with Liverpool behind them at +225.

The Cityzens are -200 to lift the trophy at the Westgate SuperBook, implying that City have a 66.7% chance to win the title when you convert their odds to implied probability.

City narrowly edged Liverpool to win the title by one point last May and oddsmakers clearly think that this season will be headlined by another two-horse race, as Liverpool is the only team remotely close to City in the market. Jurgen Klopp’s side are +225 (30.8% implied probability) to win the league, something Liverpool has not done since 1989-90.

There’s a quite a drop in price between the top two and third-favorites Tottenham at 16-1. Spurs enter this season coming off a tremendous campaign that saw them finish third in the Premier League and runners-up in the Champions League.

Three big teams in transition — Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United — are longshots to keep pace with City and Liverpool but will be fighting for a spot in the top four in what should be transition seasons.

Every team below the “Big Six” would need some sort of a miracle to contend, but the Premier League is no strangers to sporting phenomenon. In 2015-16 the league title was won by Leicester City, a 5,000-1 longshot, in what remains one of the biggest underdog stories in the history of sport.

As far as relegation odds, Sheffield United are the favorites to be relegated at -143.
The Blades are -143 to go right back down to the Championship, meaning the odds suggest they have a 58.9% chance to get relegated.

Norwich City have the second-shortest relegation odds at even money while Brighton & Hove Albion (+160) are the most-likely team from last season’s Premier League to get relegated.
