Premiership Finale Odds--The Race is On Between Man City and Liverpool for the EPL Title
It’s the final countdown to the Premiership season’s closeout, and seemingly the tale won’t be told in full until next weekend.
The championship race is nothing new in the recent years of the English Premier League, but Manchester City and Liverpool F.C. have taken the game to another elite level with high-intensity play looming on the horizons of title pursuits.
Thus, such a high standard is good for entertainment value. The Premiership has a long history in online sports betting, so it’s no surprise the games scheduled for this final week are trending globally across all these sportsbooks.
Tussle For The Top Spot – Every Point, Every Bet Counts
After their midweek results against Wolverhampton, Man City were clear with their intentions that the top spot was in their aim, showing no complacency - over and above the fact that their special marksman, Kevin De Bruyne, made his personal achievement of scoring four goals in one match.
However, Sunday’s tie against West Ham opened up a slight possibility for Liverpool to sneak in ahead of the race. Culminating to a FA Cup championship over the weekend versus Chelsea, Tottenham became a thorn for them on their previous league appearance fumbling points.
Even so, what more can Liverpool fans ask for really? They’ve already won 2 finals already and will be staying in the title race until the last game. All of this, of course, before heading to Paris to play Real Madrid in the Champions League Final. The fact that we are still talking about a quadruple this late in the season, although it's unlikely, is just remarkable.
All things considered, the football world is not ready for the chaos where City would drop valuable points off their last 2 games which would lead them to a championship either. So it's unthinkable that City could draw against Villa even though that’s what happened on Sunday, their defense is still licking their wounds, and not to mention they are up against a team with quite a few strong Liverpool connections.
Pep vs Klopp – Who Does Your Money Bet On?
Rising to the occasion, it’s needless to say that usually, it’s Pep Guardiola's side’s way when they need points.
Bold predictions made are that the Cityzens will win the league, as much as The Reds' competitiveness must be appreciated. Jurgen Klopp’s side is probably the only team in the Premiership worthy to be mentioned in the same breath as Man City.
Here are how the odds stack up today:
Steven Gerrard’s Predicament – Caught On A Crossfire
Can we appreciate that we are witnessing the best season in a while? As we draw closer to the league finale, we are on the edge of our seats for the title race, the Top 4 Champions League chase, and the relegation all to play for down to the wire.
Sometimes jokes write themselves too, it is so ironic that Aston Villa’s manager, Steven Gerrard, stands in a position to help his former club clinch the league title by beating the log leaders Man City at the final match.
Having failed in 2014, Gerrard now once again has the opportunity to win Liverpool the league 7 years later along with Coutinho. Couldn’t have written it better.
