The 2018/2019 season was a two-horse race between Manchester City and Liverpool with City securing the title on the last day of the season with a win over Brighton. Despite Liverpool’s fine form which helped them achieve a thrilling victory of Spanish giants Barcelona followed by a win against fellow English side Tottenham to claim the UEFA Champions League title, they were unable to hold their lead at the top of the Premier League table and finished the season trailing Man City by just 1 point.
The bookies are currently backing City to claim their third consecutive Premier League title next season and have priced The Citizens odds-on at just 4/6 with last years runners up at 5/2. It’s hard to see the remaining teams in the league challenge for the title, especially with the lack of major signings to date in the summer transfer window and the third favourite is Tottenham at outsider odds of 15/1 followed by Chelsea (32/1) and Man Utd (39/1).
If you fancy The Reds to maintain their form next season and City to finally slip up, online bookmaker Betfair are currently offering the best odds for a title win. Betfair run both an online sportsbook and a betting exchange and although you may find a slightly better price on the exchange, there will be a commission charge should your bet win and so you may be better taking the Betfair Sportsbook price of 5/2.
If you haven’t registered an account at Betfair Sportsbook yet then they have an excellent offer for new customers which can see you receive up to £100 in free bets which should help you out with a few punts at the start of the season.
