2021-22 EPL Odds: Odds to Win the EPL

With just one point separating Manchester City from Liverpool at the top of the table, it was quite fitting that both sides battled to a draw at Etihad Stadium on Sunday, April 10. Just seven games are left on the EPL schedule, and if Man City runs the table, Liverpool won’t be able to overcome them no matter how well Jurgen Klopp’s side does.

A little further down the table, there were significant implications for Tottenham and Arsenal over the weekend. Arsenal lost 2-1 to Brighton & Hove, while their in-town rivals, Tottenham had a massive 4-0 victory against Aston Villa. Both teams were tied at 54 in the standings before the weekend, and now Tottenham has pulled ahead by three points.

EPL Odds Breakdown

Although we’re almost certainly looking at a two-horse race for the title, EPL odds are still up for the top five outright, and there are also odds for the winner without Man City and odds for Top 4 and 6 finishes. We’ll check in with the top clubs to see how they stack up at this point in the season.

Manchester City -250

Also playing in the UEFA Champions League, Manchester City (23-5-3) followed up their troubling 0-0 draw with 10th place Crystal Palace with a 2-0 victory over relegation-bound Burnley. The remaining fixtures on their schedule include No. 11 Brighton, No. 19 Watford, No. 16 Leeds, No. 15 Newcastle, No. 6 West Ham, No. 8 Wolves and No. 12 Aston Villa—a promising season end for the Sky Blues. 

If Kevin De Bruyne continues his recent hot play, which has seen him score four goals in the last four games, there’s no reason to think Man City can’t win every game from here on out.

Liverpool +200

Liverpool (22-7-2) are also still competing in the UEFA Champions League, where they’ve reached the semi-finals at press. They have been on a mission in the second half of the EPL season; on January 16, they started a 10-game win streak that lasted until their 2-2 draw against Man City on April 10. Throughout that stretch, Liverpool scored a total of 25 goals and conceded just two. It comes as no surprise that they have the best goal differential (+57) in the league.

From here on out, Liverpool will face No. 7 Man United, No. 17 Everton, No. 15 Newcastle, No. 4 Spurs, No. 12 Aston Villa, No. 14 Southampton and No. 8 Wolves. And they may have to do without two of their star players for some of it; Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota suffered minor injuries last weekend in FA play.

Chelsea +50000

Third in the standings with 62 points, Chelsea (18-8-4) is splitting their time between the EPL and FA Cup, where they’re currently in the semi-finals. This has been an up-and-down season for them; they lost by a three-goal margin to No. 13 Brentford, and won 6-0 against Southampton and 4-0 against Burnley. They’re also in the midst of an unexpected ownership change, as Roman Abramovich scrambles to sell off assets.

Betting on the EPL winner excluding Man City has Chelsea as a +5000 second-favourite behind Liverpool (-50000)—the same odds for winning outright.

Tottenham Hotspur +200000

Hotspur (18-3-10) fans are on a high after seeing their team dominate opposition in the last few weeks of action, passing Arsenal in the process. The Spur beat Aston Villa 4-0 last Saturday and Newcastle United 5-1 the Sunday before. Son Heung-Min has been unstoppable, scoring a brace in Tottenham’s 3-1 victory against West Ham United, then a single goal in the Newcastle match, before topping it off with a hat trick against Aston Villa last weekend. 

Their next opponent is Brighton & Hove on Saturday, where they’re -180 to continue their hot streak and come out on top. 

Arsenal +250000

Arsenal (17-3-10) haven’t been doing so well in recent times, which is chipping away at their chances of finishing in the Top Four (+200). They’ve lost both fixtures in April so far and have some tough competition coming up in Chelsea (April 20) and Manchester United (April 23). Before then, they should be able to capitalize on their April 16 match against No. 14 Southampton (+290) where they’re -105 favourites.  

Injuries have been unkind to Mikel Arteta’s team; Takehiro Tomiyasu is still not slated to return for over a week, while Kieran Tierney is out for the season. Thomas Partey should be back before the end of the season. 

EPL Top Scorer Odds

It's not too late to place a wager on who you think will finish the 2021-22 EPL season with the most goals. We’re checking in with the top four contenders.

Mohamed Salah -600 EPL Odds

Forward Mohamed Salah has scored 20 goals so far this season for Liverpool—two short of last season’s total. The consistency he enjoyed early in the EPL season has cooled a bit, with no goals scored in his last three EPL matches. 

Son-Heung Min +600 EPL Odds

Tottenham’s Son-Heung Min has rocketed up the EPL odds board to second-favourite for most goals scored this season. The South Korean sensation isn’t far off from the favourite; with 17 goals scored so far, he is only three away from Salah and is red-hot at the moment with six scored in his last three games. 

Diogo Jota +2500 EPL Odds

Salah’s decreased production in Liverpool’s last few games have opened things up for Jota. The forward has found the back of the net in the last three games and has scored the third-most goals in the league at 15.

Harry Kane +2800

Kane was eclipsed by teammate Heung-Min this season, scoring just 12 goals for Tottenham. Even through Tottenham’s intense offensive production in the last three games, Kane played more of a supportive role with five assists and no goals.

*Odds as of April 15th 2022
