Oddsmakers have pegged the quest for the Premier League title as a two-horse race, with defending champion Man City and Liverpool leading the pack. Man City, who have won four of the past five EPL titles, are the odds favorite to win it again, listed at -165 at Caesars Sportsbooks. Liverpool, last season’s runner-ups, is +200. The gap between the two top clubs and the rest of the table is significant, according to oddsmakers. Man City and Liverpool are the only two teams with single-digit odds. Tottenham, at +1,400, and Chelsea, at +1,600, are next but are ways down oddsboards. Tottenham, however, has attracted the most bets and is the most wagered to win the league title at Caesars Sportsbook, but it’ll be a tall task to unseat Man City. Given their recent dominance in the league, it’s no surprise that Man City is favored to win again this season. But with Liverpool looking strong as well, it should be an exciting race to the finish line.
Can Liverpool easily overcome other opponents this season and come back to overcome Man City to win the title?
Liverpool narrowly missed out on winning their first Premier League title last season, finishing just one point behind Man City. However, they did notch a victory over their rivals in the FA Community Shield last week. Man City have bolstered their already potent roster by adding elite striker Erling Haaland in the offseason, but Liverpool will be looking to make up for last season’s disappointment and come out on top this time around.
Arsenal, who kick off the season Friday against Crystal Palace, are +2,800, and Manchester United is +3,500. Man United’s preseason title odds are the longest they’ve been in over a decade, according to sports betting archive SportsOddsHistory.com. Bournemouth and Fulham, at 1,500-1 and 1,000-1 respectively, are the longest shots on the board at Caesars Sportsbook.
