Where does the value currently lie when it comes to betting on football outrights in all four of England’s top divisions?
Here, we run through the latest football outright betting in the Premier League, Championship, Leagues 1 & 2, and how results are shaping the odds.
Football Outright Betting – March 2020
Premier League winner odds
They won’t become the second side to take on the mantle of ‘Invincibles’ after finally chalking up a Premier League defeat, but a 22-point lead means Liverpool virtually have one hand on the trophy as they look to end 28 years of hurt by lifting a maiden title in the competition.
With a lead that looks almost unassailable, it’s unsurprising the Reds are currently 1/1000 to be lifting the trophy this May.
Despite their recent wobble, a collapse from Jurgen Klopp’s side now would have to be of epic proportions, but nearest challengers Man City are 100/1 to capitalise if you still believe there’s an extraordinary twist in the tale to come.
Top four odds
With a comfortable cushion to fifth place, Liverpool, Man City (1/1000) and Leicester City (4/25) look to have all but locked up three of the top four spots in the Premier League, but it’s the race for fourth that looks set to be the most hotly-contested battle over the last few months of the season.
Chelsea (4/5) currently sit in the box seat but indifferent form has seen them fail to pull away – opening the door for rivals Tottenham Hotspur (11/2) and Man Utd (47/20) to close the gap.
All three have been dogged by inconsistency this season, which could make Wolves (4/1) the most intriguing option in this market if Nuno’s slick side can keep up their current strong form.
Premier League relegation odds
The relegation battle looks to be among the most interesting of the Premier League outrights markets, with this year’s fight still looking a toss-up between a whole range of clubs.
Norwich’s lack of Premier League experience looks to be sending the rock-bottom Canaries back down to the Championship at the first time of asking (1/10), while Aston Villa (4/7) look overly reliant on Jack Grealish to drag them away from trouble. West Ham’s horrendous fixture list sees them priced at 7/4 to fall through the relegation trap door. Bournemouth (4/5), Brighton (9/4) and Watford (3/1) are nip and tuck in the Premier League relegation odds and will need to find some consistency before they can breathe easy.
Premier League Golden Boot Odds
Last year’s golden boot was ultimately shared between three players – Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and 2019/20 looks set to be another close-run thing.
Sergio Agüero (11/4) and Jamie Vardy (4/1) are once again firmly in the battle for top spot, while Arsenal’s recent uplift in form means Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (5/2) also looks handily placed to make it back-to-back Golden Boots.
Championship Winner Odds
Leeds (5/6) and West Brom (117/100) have been leading the way for most of the season in the Championship, but with a place in the Premier League within touching distance, both have shown signs of feeling the pressure at times this season. However, both look to have weathered the storm, making them both standout candidates in the Championship winner odds.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side’s continual struggle to finish off teams could be their ultimate Achilles’ heel, while West Brom’s occasional lapses in defence could also be their undoing. That leaves two west London clubs leading the charge to snatch their automatic promotion spots. With plenty of goalscoring prowess to call on, Fulham (35/1) look the only side likely to currently capitalise if the top two suffer a spring collapse.
League One Winner Odds
Looking for excitement? Look no further. The League One promotion race already looks to be heading all the way to the final day, with the top seven sides separated by just eight points.
Ipswich led the way for much of the early part of the season, but a collapse in form has seen them fall by the wayside. Coventry and Rotherham look to have the consistency needed to steal a march in the run-in, while in Kenny Jackett, Portsmouth have a proven promotion expert at this level – and they could be the ones to watch in the League One winner odds.
League Two Winner Odds
Finally in League Two, current league leaders Swindon Town still look the class act heading into the final third of the season. The Robins continue to impress under the astute Richie Wellens, and look every inch title-winners in the making.
If Swindon hit a sticky patch, a resurgent Plymouth Argyle look intriguing in the League Two winner odds and have a manager with proven League Two-promotion pedigree in Ryan Lowe. League One could have a distinct West Country feel next season, with Exeter City and Cheltenham Town also looking capable of mounting a late title charge.
