When it comes to UEFA soccer leagues, the Premier doesn’t appear to be all that competitive. The odds on Man City have dropped to less than -500, making the Sky Blues a huge favorite. But is Manchester City a lock to win the 2021-2022 Premier League title? Check out Premier League odds and analysis for the three top choices and the best underdog to take the English Premier League Championship.

2021 – 2022 Premier League Championship Season
- When: Aug. 13, 2021 – May 22, 2022
Top Pick: Liverpool +204
Make no mistake, catching Manchester City won’t be easy. The Sky Blues currently have 66 points while the Reds boast 60.
To catch Manchester City, Liverpool must turnaround 6 points, meaning City must lose 2 games and Pool must win 2. Then, the Reds can’t fall apart.
So a lot must go right for Liverpool to win the Premier League. But a lot could go right. Heading into their weekend match versus West Ham United, Pool has won 11 straight, including beating Inter Milano 2-0 in a Champions League match in Italy.
Not only that, but Liverpool’s odds to win the title are much better than Man City’s. So unless you’re a Sky Blues fan, consider putting the Reds on top.
Second Pick: Manchester City -549
The defending champs are as solid as a play as any on the board. Although the odds aren’t great, only Liverpool appears to have a shot at catching Manchester City.
City has a 16 points lead over Chelsea. Not only that, but Pep made the right move by transferring Jack Grealish from Aston Villa to Manchester.
Grealish has opened up the midfield for the great Kevin De Bruyne. So far, De Bruyne has 7 goals and a couple of assists in 15 starts.
No wonder De Bruyne didn’t fight when Pep decided to hand #10 to Grealish. Man City offers bad odds, but the odds don’t make the Sky Blues an underlay because they might be a lock.
Third Pick: Chelsea +9000
Chelsea should finish in third place. Thomas Tuchel’s squad is good enough to win the Premier, but Liverpool and Man City have built a giant lead.
It’s too much of a lead for the Blues to overcome. Also, owner Roman Abramovich is selling the team. Abramovich put a lot of money into Chelsea, which is why the Blues, even if they can’t win the Premier, have a shot to take the Champions League for the second straight season.
Without Abramovich’s dollars, there’s a chance Chelsea becomes a middle of the road Premier squad. Knowing you could end up in a different kit next season has a lot of Chelsea’s higher priced players, like Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku, wondering if it’s worth it to lay it all on the line in a longshot attempt to make up 16 points on City.
Top Underdog Pick: Manchester United +65000
Yes, we know. Man United is not going to win the Premier League. But lightning does strike once in a while and people do win the lottery.
So, if you want to back a team with some quality at tremendous odds to pull off a miracle, why not go with the Red Devils? The team has a lot of talent.
Ronaldo, Marcus Rashford, Harry McGuire, Jadon Sancho, and Bruno Fernandes, all play in a Man U uniform. Also, United’s lone loss in their last 11 was via penalty kicks.
Again, the chances of the Red Devils taking the Premier League Championship this season is close to zero. But what should we expect at +65000 odds? There’s no shame in taking a massive swing once in a while.
