2020/21 EPL Outright Markets Hints and Tips
The first and most popular outright market is the EPL winners. This year see’s iBet789 Myanmar making Manchester City and Liverpool the two clear favourites. This is unsurprising as these two teams have been miles clear of the rest of the league in terms of both quality and results in recent years.
Last year’s second place side Manchester City have been made favourites this time round to regain the Premier League title after last winning it in 2019. City, who are managed by Pep Guardiola, fell short last season mainly due to defensive issues. With the addition of Nathan Ake and the return to fitness of Aymeric Laporte iBet789 clearly believe that The Citizens can put these issues behind them to mount a real title challenge this season.
One team that will have something to say about that is last year’s winners Liverpool, who have been made just second favourites to win this year’s edition. The reds lack of transfer activity and inconsistent end of season form has led to many questioning whether they have what it takes to repeat last year’s heroics. However, remember that this is still the side that scored 99 points in the league last season, blowing most other teams out of the water in the process. At current odds of 3.3 with iBet789 they may well be a very shrewd bet for the upcoming season.
If you are looking for a more outside shot both Manchester United and Chelsea at odds of 12 may be good calls. United have been sluggish in the transfer window so far but they were the most in-form team post-lockdown and finished 3rd last year. Whereas Chelsea, who finished 4th last season, have spent almost a quarter of a billion pound in the off-season so will be hoping they can mount a challenge.
The relegation battle in the EPL is always one of the tightest scraps in world soccer. Three teams get relegated each year, and this year in particular any of the leagues bottom 10 or 11 clubs could easily see themselves facing a relegation scrap.
The two clear favourites to go down are newly promoted teams West Bromwich Albion and Fulham, with iBet789 making them extremely short odds of 2 and 2.1 to go straight back down. Having both been in the EPL in recent years both West Brom and Fulham will be hoping that they now know what it takes to stay up in.
The only club who do not have this luxury is last year’s EFL Championship winners Leeds United who were last in the EPL way back in 2004. At slightly longer odds of 4.5 to go down, iBet789 clearly believe that the Marcelo Bielsa effect and their attractive style of play gives them a genuine chance of staying up. However, a relegation scrap should not be discounted for The Whites.
Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United, Burnley, and Brighton and Hove Albion are all shorter odds than Leeds United and are teams who last year finished in the lower echelons of the table and could well find themselves in a relegation scrap again.
Sheffield United, who for a long time were challenging for European qualification last season can count themselves unlucky to be priced at 4.35 with iBet789. Chris Wilders men were the surprise package last year and will be hoping to perform to a similar standard this year, however their lack of financial power and lack of individual quality is clear to see and explains the shorter odds.
The two teams with longer odds who could well see themselves down there come the end of the season are West Ham United and Southampton. These two clubs seem to be perennial bottom half finishers, and as their odds suggest will not be immune to relegation.
To Finish Bottom
This is a very similar market to the relegation market, but if you believe one team is so bad that they will finish 20th overall you can get some good, enhanced odds. The teams in with a shout of finishing bottom are pretty much the same as those with a shout of going down, but odds can be 3, 4 or even 5 times higher than the relegation odds!
