Premier League title odds ahead of Championship Sunday

If you’re interested in betting on any of these intriguing Premier League races during Championship Sunday, FanDuel Sportsbook is the place to find the odds. All lines listed below are from FanDuel as of May 16, 2024:

2023/24 Premier League Outright Winner

If Pep Guardiola’s men manage to beat West Ham at home — something they’ve done every year since 2016 — they are the champions. The Irons haven’t beaten Manchester City inside of 90 minutes since their last win in 2015.

The Citizens are a well-oiled machine under Guardiola, who won’t let them slip up when they can win their sixth Premier League title in the last seven years. Arsenal (+850 to win the title) will likely cruise against Everton to cap off a fantastic season.

I think the Gunners fall short in the end as their Premier League trophy drought continues. There is zero value in betting on Manchester City here, so unless you think Arsenal can pull off the improbable, stay away from the heavily juiced line. You’re better off betting on the Citizens to beat West Ham at -1100.

Bet: Manchester City (-1800)

2023/24 Premier League Top 5 Finish

Tottenham holds a three-point advantage over London rival Chelsea heading into the final day. The Blues aim to pull off an incredible feat as they’ve ascended from 11th to sixth in seven weeks. They could climb one more place if the results go their way on Sunday.

If Spurs get any positive result against Sheffield United, they will clinch the UEFA Europa League spot in fifth. However, if the Blades win in their last game in the Premier League for at least a year, the door opens for Chelsea.

The Blues are large favorites over Bournemouth as they look to rip off five consecutive wins in the league. While Tottenham is an even bigger favorite over Sheffield United, nothing is guaranteed in that fixture.

Spurs have lost five of their last six Premier League matches and struggled with the Blades during the previous 14 months. Tottenham was beaten in its latest trip to Bramall Lane (1-0 in March 2023 in the FA Cup). While I don’t think Ange Postecoglou will settle for anything less than a positive result, there is a ton of value here with Chelsea at 9/1.

Bet: Chelsea (+900)

2023/24 Premier League Top 6 Finish

Right below the London Derby race for fifth is the race for sixth between Chelsea and Newcastle United. The Blues hold a three-point advantage over the Magpies, hence the heavily juiced odds. If it comes down to it, though, Eddie Howe’s men have the advantage via goal differential.

Nevertheless, Newcastle is in a bit of a slump right now. The Magpies have won just two of their last five matches and the Matchday 38 fixture isn’t kind. It won’t be easy going to Brentford to take on a Bees team that’s unbeaten in four of its last five. Meanwhile, Chelsea is among the hottest teams in the English top flight right now and at home on the final day.

This is another line I wouldn’t consider betting on because one would have to wager $135 to return a profit of just $10. It’s not worth the risk. Instead, consider parlaying Chelsea moneyline and Newcastle/Draw double chance for near-even money odds (-102).

Bet: Chelsea (-1350)

2023/24 Premier League Top Half Finish

Perhaps the most interesting race on Championship Sunday is the most meaningless — the race for a top-half finish. Four teams can finish the season in the 10th spot heading into Matchday 38: Brighton, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Wolves.

All four have tough final fixtures with Brighton hosting Manchester United, Bournemouth away to Chelsea, Crystal Palace welcoming Aston Villa and Wolves traveling to face Liverpool.

Let’s get one thing straight, Gary O’Neil’s side isn’t finishing 10th. Wolves (+5000) would need to leave Anfield with all three points during Jurgen Klopp’s final game at Liverpool. That won’t happen, but if it did, all three other clubs need to drop points for Wolves to jump them.

I don’t expect Bournemouth (+650) to get a result at Stamford Bridge either. That’d mean they must better Brighton’s result by at least seven goals, which is an unrealistic ask. The Seagulls (-310) have a tough matchup with a Manchester United team that still has everything to play for in the next few weeks.

My favorite play here is Crystal Palace (+430). The Eagles host an Aston Villa side that’s already clinched a Champions League place and thus has no real motivation. They’re in the best form of all four competitors having gone five games unbeaten (four wins, one draw).

Crystal Palace’s goal difference is just one away from Brighton’s, so a win would be enough to give it the edge even if the Seagulls muster up a draw against Manchester United. I love the Eagles’ value.

Bet: Crystal Palace (+430)
