Who Are The Premier League Favourites For Relegation, Promotion And Top Scorer?

We delve in to Betfred's outright markets to see what the current state of play is in the Premier League
14:05, 08 Mar 2022

As we begin to move into the final stages of the campaign, the 2021/22 Premier League season is on the verge of reaching boiling point. The title race is far from over, there’s still a plethora of relegation candidates and the battle for the European spots promises to be one of the most thrilling in recent memory

We decided to delve into Betfred’s current Premier League outrights to see where everyone stands heading into a hectic last few months in the English top-flight. 

Champions

There’s a two-horse race for the Premier League this season between Manchester City and Liverpool. The advantage lies with Pep Guardiola’s men (1/4) who currently hold a six point gap over the Merseyside outfit, but Liverpool (11/4) do have a game in hand. The two meet on April 10th in a game that could produce a seismic shift in the title race.

Top Four

Chelsea are well out of the race for the title but are a comfortable bet to consolidate their place in third and at odds of 1/66 for a top four finish, it's fair to say Thomas Tuchel’s men will have a place in next season’s Champions League. Elsewhere, we have a thrilling finish to the season with regards to the final place in the Premier League top four. 

Arsenal (8/15) are the frontrunners and moved into the top four this weekend with a 3-2 win over Watford. Mikel Arteta’s side are currently two points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United (4/1) and have three games in hand over the Red Devils. 

West Ham’s (16/1) charge for a top four spot seems to be winding down and they find themselves three points behind the Gunners after the weekend’s loss to Liverpool. But, like Man United, they have also played three more games than Arsenal. 

Tottenham Hotspur (11/4) are the most likely to challenge their bitter north-London rivals for that final spot in the top four this term, with Antonio Conte’s side just three points behind Arsenal. Although Spurs have played a game more than Arsenal at this point, the pair are set to play each other in the league one more time before the season ends, the result of which will be monumental.

Top Six

Arsenal (1/20), Spurs (1/6) and Man United (1/4) all look likely to finish in the top six at least this season. Three league defeats since the turn of the year has made West Ham’s mountain to climb a little tougher with regards to chasing either Champions League or Europa League football this season, but David Moyes’ Hammers are still well in with a shout at 6/4.

They’re far from alone though, with a chasing pack of teams who each have top six ambitions including Wolverhampton Wanderers (9/1), Leicester City (20/1), Aston Villa (28/1) and Southampton (50/1) hot on their heels.

Relegation

Rock bottom Norwich City (1/50) are all but relegated this season barring a miraculous turn of events, while Watford, though they have slightly brighter hopes than the Canaries, also look to be Championship bound at odds of 1/4. 

Elsewhere, Burnley’s (5/6) time in the Premier League looks to be running short, but with a game in hand on the bottom two and a number of clubs above them in similar danger, Sean Dyche’s men could still earn a reprieve this season. Everton’s (10/3) 5-0 hammering at the hands of Spurs on Monday night, set alarm bells ringing around Goodison Park and Frank Lampard has a serious job on his hands to save the Toffees from their first relegation in the Premier League era. 

Meanwhile, Leeds United (13/8) and Brentford (4/1) will also be looking over their shoulders, however Newcastle United (16/1), who looked destined for the drop just a few months ago, look safe.

Top Goalscorer

It seems very unlikely that the Golden Boot will be going anywhere other than Anfield this season, more specifically, Mo Salah (1/10). The Egyptian King currently has 19 goals to his name, seven more than the second and third-highest scorers, teammates Sadio Mane (33/1) and Diogo Jota (22/1). 

Harry Kane looks to have finally hit some goalscoring form this campaign, but he remains nine goals behind Salah and at 20/1 seems unlikely to challenge.
