Free tips Premier League Football is Back in Action After The 100 Days Bore
Premier League Football Betting Is Back!
The Premier League went into Covid-19 pandemic induced lockdown following Leicester City’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa back on 09 March but now, after 100 action-less days, it’s back to business in the English top-flight with games resuming on Wednesday 17 June.
The Premier League will look somewhat different when it resumes, with empty stadia and managers being permitted to make up to five substitutions in any game being key changes.
The title race has long been a foregone conclusion, with Liverpool’s remarkable campaign having all but already secured them a first league title in 30 years. Elsewhere there’s still plenty to play for though.
Premier League 2020 Schedule
As stated above, the English Premier League returns to action on Wednesday 17 June, with Aston Villa v Sheffield United getting things underway at 6pm, followed swiftly by Manchester City v Arsenal at 8.15pm.
The season is set to be concluded with a final round of matches on Sunday 26th July.
Premier League Top 4 Finish Betting
With the destination of the Premier League title already all but decided, the race for Champions League qualification is now the main source of interest for many fans and punters.
Manchester City might not have been quite at their imperious best in the Premier League this season, but nobody is expecting them to miss out on a Top 4 finish.
On paper, Leicester City look fairly secure for a Top 4 finish too, but they have some decidedly difficult fixtures remaining and a couple of early set-backs once the season resumes could have them looking anxiously over their shoulders.
The Premier League bookies seem to think that the Foxes will be fine and that the real race is for fourth spot between Chelsea and Manchester United. There are others still very much in the mix too, with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sheffield United, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal all hoping to capitalise on any slip-ups.
These are the current best odds available for a Top 4 finish with the leading, reputable online bookmakers:
- Leicester City – 1/5 (Betway)
- Chelsea – 4/6 (Betway)
- Manchester United – 7/4 (William Hill)
- Wolverhampton Wanderers – 8/1 (Betfair)
- Tottenham Hotspur – 14/1 (888Sport)
- Arsenal – 17/1 (Betfair)
- Sheffield United – 17/1 (Paddy Power)
The Red Devils started to find some real form before the league was suspended and there is a sense of self-belief growing in the squad under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Premier League Relegation 2020 Betting Odds
It’s not looking good for Norwich City, who are stuck at the foot of the table six points from safety. Their remaining fixtures give them hope, but two of their last three games of the campaign are on the road at Chelsea and Manchester City.
Elsewhere it looks like perm any two from five teams for the drop.
Aston Villa have a porous defence and lack a reliable goalscoring striker – not ideal for a team currently sitting next to bottom in the table. The Villa faithful will be pinning their hopes on Jack Grealish leading them to safety, but it looks a big ask.
The other teams in the relegation mix are Bournemouth, Watford, West Ham United and Brighton & Hove Albion.
These are the current best Premier League Relegation 2020 betting odds available with the leading, reputable online bookmakers:
- Norwich City – 1/12 (Betfair)
- Aston Villa – 4/9 (Betway)
- Bournemouth – 5/6 (Betway)
- West Ham United – 12/5 (Betway)
- Watford – 5/2 (BetVictor)
- Brighton & Hove Albion – 3/1 (Paddy Power)
Brighton have yet to win a Premier League game in 2020 and they face some tough looking fixtures on their run-in.

Premier League Top Goalscorer 2020 Betting Odds
The race to be the Premier League Top Goalscorer 2020 betting odds market was building up nicely prior to the enforced break, with plenty of names still in contention.
Leicester’s Jamie Vardy leads the way with 19 goals as things stand, with Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang two goals adrift on 17 and Sergio Agüero and Mo Salah both on 16 goals.
These are the current best prices on offer in the Premier League Top Goalscorer 2020 betting odds with the leading, reputable online bookmakers:
- Jamie Vardy – 2/1 (BetVictor)
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 4/1 (Betway)
- Sergio Agüero – 11/2 (William Hill)
- Mo Salah – 13/2 (Betway)
- Sadio Mane – 16/1 (BetFred)
- Marcus Rashford – 20/1 (BetVictor)
Gabon striker Aubameyang has scored 49 goals in 75 Premier League football appearances for the Gunners and the Arsenal captain carries the majority of his team’s hopes of a late surge for the Top 4.
