There are still though a number of other great betting opportunities you can take advantage of before the campaign ends. One of the most popular if which teams will finish in the top four and I will go through the different odds available on the teams competing for it. If you do fancy a punt make sure you take advantage of the bet365s opening offer.
#1: Top Four Finish
Sadly bookmakers have stopped taking bets on Manchester City to win the EPL. Their record-breaking winning start blew away the competition which has made the challenge for the title this campaign dull. To keep things interesting you should consider putting a punt on who is going to finish in the top four without including Man City.
Manchester United are the favorites to qualify for the Champions League priced at 7 / 1 and with the points advantage they have over the others they have the advantage. They have a difficult run of matches which includes Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City. If they can hold their nerve in these matches and get something from them they should make it.
Liverpool is second favorites priced at 2 / 13. They have an easier run-in compared with Man U as they only face the Red Devils and Chelsea out of the top six teams. These two matches will go a long way in deciding who qualifies for the Champions League. If they can beat all the lower placed team fixtures remaining it will see them take one of the top four places.
Tottenham Hotspur were many people dark horses for the title this campaign after coming close for the last two seasons. Things have not gone quite to plan but in recent weeks they have hit top form in the league. If they can continue to play the way they have been doing since the turn of the new year, they should be able to pip Chelsea to the fourth place. Priced at 2 / 5 they are still good value and with Harry Kane banging in the goals, they should make it.
Chelsea has had a very disappointing season after winning the EPL title last time around. Conte did not get the players he wanted to sign and the team is disjointed at the moment. They miss the likes of John Terry and Frank Lampard to drive the team to the finish line. They still have Manchester City, United, Spurs, and Liverpool to face so the team will need to be playing at their very best if they want to qualify for the Champions League. Their recent form has been poor and they will need to turn things around fast if they are going to finish above the others. You can find odds available at around 5 / 6 with most bookies.
If you want to waste your money you can always back Arsenal to qualify for the Champions League. They are priced at 16 / 1 so if they can turn things around you will make a nice amount of money. I personally think that Man U, Liverpool, and Chelsea will qualify along with champions Man City. Let us know who you think will qualify, in the comment below.
