2020 EPL Odds: Odds to Win the FA Cup

Following a dominant season, Liverpool finally ended their EPL title drought and secured their first EPL championship in 30 years. Manchester City’s two-year reign ended when they lost to Chelsea on June 25, which officially closed the book on their chances at catching the Reds in the standings. Thousands of fans celebrated just outside of Anfield Stadium despite the mayor’s advisements against public gatherings. Their odds to win the EPL again in 2020/21 are +135, which is behind Manchester City (EVEN). The next option on the EPL betting lines is Chelsea at a distant +1000.

Due to the penalties handed down by UEFA for a breach in financial conduct, Manchester City won’t be included in any European competitions for two years beginning next season—unless their appeal overturns the decision, which we won’t know until July 13. The outcome is significant to other teams in the league, especially fifth-place Manchester United, as the ban means a fifth-place team would qualify for next season’s Champions League.

 

EPL Odds Breakdown

With the EPL champions crowned and the 2019-20 EPL lines closed, the FA Cup is now the centre of attention for EPL fans, and we currently have four teams on the FA Cup odds board. The semi-finals are scheduled for July 18 and 19, with matches between Arsenal vs. Manchester City, and Manchester United vs. Chelsea.

 

Manchester City —165

Holders, Manchester City breezed through the beginning rounds of this year’s tournament, beating Fulham 4-0 in the fourth round and then putting away Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 in the fifth round. In the quarter-finals, they beat Newcastle United 2-0 for a third straight clean sheet.

 

Chelsea +400

Thanks to contributions from Ross Barkley and Willian, Chelsea eliminated Liverpool in the fifth round at Stamford Bridge. Barkley scored again in the quarter final game against Leicester City after getting on the pitch for the second half. His goal was the only one scored in what ended up being a 1-0 victory.

 

Manchester United +400

A 2-1 victory over Norwich City in the quarter finals granted Manchester United passage to the semi-finals. After a blank first half, Odion Ighalo opened the scoring, but Norwich’s Todd Cantwell responded with a goal in the 75th minute, sending things into extra time. In the second-last minute, new captain Harry Maguire sealed the deal with the match-sealing goal. That victory has Man United positioned as the +135 favourite in their semi-final matchup against Chelsea, which should be a good one.

 

Arsenal +1200

The best value pick on the odds board is Arsenal, who are unfortunately matched up with Manchester City for the semi-finals. Arsenal beat Sheffield United in a back-and-forth affair on the road in the quarter-finals that required a goal scored in injury time to claim victory. Now they face a much fiercer opponent in Manchester City as +750 underdogs. Arsenal did manage to beat the juggernauts in the 2017 semi-finals en route to winning the Cup and would pay handsomely if they repeated the performance.
