Man City odds on to win back Premier league title
The Premier league season has now returned, and it again looks set to be a fascinating season ahead. Leeds have returned to the top flight and many sides have been investing greatly in their squads. But it still appears likely to go down to the duel between Manchester City and current defending champions Liverpool for the Premier league title. At present it is Manchester City who are the favourites and can be supported at a general 8/11 to win back their title, following finishing runner up last season. This comes as the season has returned but could we yet see the coronavirus cause further problems to the footballing world? Last season it meant a halt in play for nearly three months, which was tough news for fans and players. It led to many looking for other forms of online entertainment, with gaming platforms ‘booming’. Many punters were using the jackpotjoy promo code 2020, in order to boost their gaming experience and this has continued with the sport returning and the betting on matches increasing again. This includes on the outright Premier league market.
Manchester City entered last season, following winning each of the last two seasons very impressively. The 2017/18 victory was a record breaking one, as they ran away with the title and also broke the points record in the process. This saw them finish 19 points clear of second placed Manchester United, with 100 points in total. City won 32 of their 38 matches played in the Premier league, whilst losing just two games all season. That is why they then went into the 2018/19 campaign as the overwhelming betting favourites and again odds-on. However, it was much more competitive this time around, despite them picking up 98 points over the season. This time around they won 32 matches and ultimately finished just one point clear of Liverpool, who were much improved. That was difficult to date for Liverpool, with the season going down to the final match and Liverpool also only being beaten once.
Last season was then expected to be another duel between the two sides, with Manchester City again starting as the odds-on favourites. City undeformed and could only pick up 81 points, which was a big dig in form, from their previous results in each of the two previous seasons. It saw them win just 26 games, whilst losing nine. That was ultimately the difference but there is no doubting just how impressive and dominant Liverpool were. The latter finished with 99 points and just missed out on equalling the points record of 100. They also finished 18 points clear of Manchester City, in a memorable season for Liverpool, as they won their first Premier league title and first top flight success since back in 1990.
It is clear that Liverpool clearly have a very strong chance of again backing up and winning their 20th top flight title, so it sets up for a fascinating duel between the two sides. Chelsea are then likely to pose the biggest threat of ending the dominating period of the two previously mentioned. They have continued to invest heavily in the squad, that includes the signings of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva to name just a few. They can now be supported at a general 10/1, in what could just be one of the most competitive title races we have seen in the Premier league for some time.
