Where does the value currently lie when it comes to betting on football outrights in all four of England’s top divisions?
Football Outright Betting | Current State of Play
Here, we run through the latest football outright betting in the Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two.
It’s increasingly looking like only a dramatic turnaround in fortunes will stop Man City winning the 2020/21 Premier League.
If their form continues, City could wrap up this year’s title by early May should everything fall their way.
Is the gap between the Premier League and Championship becoming insurmountable?
It certainly seemed that way looking at the first quarter of the EFL Championship season, particularly in a post-COVID landscape with belt-tightening everywhere.
However, of last year’s relegated sides, only Norwich (19/200) flew out the blocks to brush off their relegation hangover, and the Canaries are now red-hot favourites to lift a second EFL Championship title in the space of three years.
On current form, only Watford look like putting any kind of consistent pressure on them and the Hornets are 17/2 to make a late tilt at title glory.
Now while top spot in the top two divisions of English football looks all but settled, here’s where it gets interesting.
League One looks to heading towards an epic last-day showdown, with Hull City (181/100), Sunderland (161/100) and Peterborough (123/50) currently locked in a battle royale for supremacy.
It’s the Black Cats that seem to be hitting form at just the right time under Lee Johnson, and Sunderland are now favourites to give their long-suffering fanbase something to smile about by the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
While the post-Covid landscape has been a living nightmare for most League Two clubs, it’s arguably helped shine a light on some of the best young football managers in the EFL.
Mark Bonner and Michael Duff look to be two coaches on the way up, and that’s reflected in both the league table and the betting. Cambridge Utd (79/20), and Cheltenham (123/100) could be the duo that push on as we head into the final months of the campaign, while the experienced Keith Hill knows how to close out a League Two promotion campaign.
His Tranmere Rovers side are 77/10 to take the title, while keep an eye on a re-energised Bolton Wanderers (9/2).
Strong form since the turn of the year has brought the Trotters right into contention after a slow start under Ian Evatt, while Forest Green Rovers (13/1) and Morecambe (14/1) can’t be ruled out just yet and probably provide the value in a division that sees fortunes swing wildly from week to week.
While the EFL Cup has been dominated by Man City in recent seasons, the FA Cup has been far more volatile, with the famous trophy changing hands for the last five seasons in a row.
With FA Cup specialists Arsenal out, we’re guaranteed another new winner in 2020/21.
It’s Man City (79/100) who are the current favourites to triumph at Wembley given their recent form in league and cup competition.
Several big hitters have joined City in the last four, with Leicester (13/4) and Chelsea (21/5) next in the betting.
It’s almost a decade since our last ‘long-shot’ winner in this tournament, Wigan in 2013.
Southampton (44/5) will be aiming to fill that slot in 2021 with the Saints the rank outsiders of the semi-finalists to go on and lift the iconic trophy.
