Premier League Betting: Liverpool Have Title Sewn Up, Right?
While there is no such thing as a foregone conclusion, especially in betting circles, it’s fair to say that Liverpool would have to seriously mess up to not finish the 2019/20 season as champions, but is there a chance they could slip on the mother of all banana skins?
When Jurgen Klopp’s side imperiously eased past Leicester City on Boxing Day, their 4-0 win being down a mixture of Liverpool’s class and the Foxes hitting the self-destruct button, it sure looked as if the German had his side purring at full speed.
The chances of Liverpool sewing up their first domestic title since 1990 are very high indeed but they face a Wolves side on the 29th who fought to come from behind to beat Manchester City and could perhaps inflict some damage on the Merseyside outfit.
Bovada odds on Wolves coming back from Anfield with all three points are a tasty 19/2 and this is a side that is challenging for a top four finish and with just one defeat in their past 14 Premier League fixtures.
Following that challenge Liverpool face another in-form side, Sheffield United, and Bovada offer an enticing 14/1 on the Blades picking up an admittedly unlikely defeat on the unbeaten title chasers.
Clearly we are clutching at straws here but Premier League betting offers some surprising options when it looks as if all major bets are off. Liverpool will find it hard to keep up their current level of form and there’s every chance Klopp will struggle to keep his players from allowing complacency to kick in.
If you are looking for good Premier League futures odds then XBet sportsbook offer a very promising 14/1 on Manchester City making up ground and completing three title successes in a row. Clearly it’s a big ask but that’s why the odds are competitively placed and to be honest if it’s not Liverpool then Pep Guardiola’s side are the only realistic challengers to the crown and the Etihad Stadium side have the quality to go on a long winning streak that could give them a glimmer of hope.
