The season in the English Premier League is coming to its end and now we can safely say that the winner is clear. Hardly anyone will be able to catch up with Manchester United which has fifteen points ahead with nine rounds to go. With greater certainty can be said that the team of Manchester City will finish at the second place in the final standings, although the third Chelsea is only four points behind the Roberto Mancini’s team.
However, there will be a great battle for the third and fourth spots which will give places for the Champions League next season.
Currently, five teams have a chance to take this two places. These are the teams of Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton.
Chelsea are in the third place with 55 points, just one more than Tottenham, which has played a match more than the others. Arsenal are fifth with 50 points, just two more than Everton. Last in this group is Liverpool with 45 points and the have also played a match more than the others. They are with 9 points behind the fourth place with just eight games left.
What offers the betting houses as odds for which team to qualify for the Champions League. Of course, the favorite for it is Chelsea, whose chances to play in the league next year are estimated at 1.14. Surprisingly, the second is Arsenal which is evaluated with 1.72, although currently is behind Tottenham in the standings. Maybe the betting houses have taken into account the history of both clubs, which shows that more than 20 seasons Arsenal hasn’t finished behind the Spurs in the final standings. Moreover, in its last matches Arsenal performs better and they also have a bit lighter schedule to the end of the season.
Either way, Tottenham’s chances to qualify for next season’s Champions League are evaluated at 2, which is not a bad betting offer.
Much more exotic look the coefficients for the ranking in the top four for the teams from Liverpool. Everton is estimated at 10 and Liverpool at 21.
So, if you love long betting shots, this is a great option for making some predictions.
