Premier League Top Four Finish Betting Odds: There are just five rounds of action left in this season’s Premier League.

The top four looked as if it took a step closer to being settled over the weekend.

Wins for Chelsea and Leicester have defined the picture a little more, with Chelsea having been trimmed to 2/5 to bank a place* (odds recorded at 04:51 GMT on April 27th, 2021 at bet365)

But everyone down to eighth-placed Everton could yet have a say in things.

Leicester almost there

Last season Leicester were sitting in third place in the table with just a handful of games remaining for the season.

They blew their lines badly, losing three of their final five fixtures to miss out on a top-four finish by four points.

But Leicester, thanks to a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Monday night appear to have things locked down here.

They have a seven-point cushion between themselves and fifth-placed West Ham as it stands.

Leicester are at 1/5 odds-on to come up trumps in Premier League top-four finish betting odds* (odds recorded at 04:51 GMT on April 27th, 2021 at bet365).

While they look pretty solid, it’s worth noting their run-in. It is not the easiest of one.

They have to play Manchester United and Chelsea away before finishing at Tottenham in their final three games of the season.

Southampton (away)
Newcastle (home)

Chelsea trimmed in Premier League Top Four Finish Betting Odds

The Blues have stiffened up at the back since Thomas Tuchel took over at the Bridge three months ago.

On the weekend they claimed a 1-0 win at West Ham in a huge game in the race for a Champions League spot.

A single goal from Timo Werner gave the Blues the victory, putting themselves three points clear of the Hammers.

There is still work to be done of course.

They still have to deal with a trip to Manchester City along with home fixtures against Arsenal and Leicester during their run-in.

But Chelsea were cut to 2/5 odds-on to bank a top-four finish after that success against West Ham* (odds recorded at 04:51 GMT on April 27th, 2021 at bet365).

Chelsea’s run-in

Fulham (home)
Man City (away)
Arsenal (home)
Leicester (home)
Aston Villa (away)

Can the Hammers pull it out?

West Ham’s home loss against Chelsea felt like a huge roadblock had been put in their path to finish in the top four.

That was the one which they badly needed to win. It has left West Ham with back to back losses in the league now.

Boss David Moyes is going to have a tough tally rallying the troops now to get a strong winning run going at the end of the season.

There are winnable fixtures down the final stretch for them, however.

Liverpool the best outside pick in Premier League Top Four Finish Betting Odds?

The outgoing Premier League Champions Liverpool are 2/1 to be playing Champions League football next season in Premier League top four finish betting odds* (odds recorded at 04:51 GMT on April 27th, 2021 at bet365).

It has already been such a poor season. No silverware is heading their way. So it would be a huge blow if they were to miss out on Champions League football next term.

This has been some fall from them after coasting to last season’s League title.

The Reds are undefeated in their last five league games but have been held to a draw in their last two against Leeds and Newcastle.

Of those in the race, however, Liverpool to have a more favourable run-in besides a trip to Manchester United in their next game.

The Reds currently have a four-point gap to Chelsea to try and somehow make up.

Tottenham struggling with form

Spurs are five points outside of the top four and that’s an awful lot of ground for them to try and make up.

Their form has been patchy as well with just a W2 D2 L2 record in their last six games.

They don’t appear to be firing on all cylinders at all and Tottenham are 9/1 to earn a top four finish* (odds recorded at 04:51 GMT on April 27th, 2021 at bet365).

Three of their five remaining games are at home and there could be an interesting one for them away at Leicester on the final day of the season.

Sheffield United (home)
Leeds (away)
Wolves (home)
Aston Villa (home)

Can Everton still make up ground?

This season had promised so much for Everton. At one point they were looking strong for an assault on the top four.

Particularly when they won at Liverpool. But the Toffees have struggled for form recently, mostly at home.

They were gifted three points at Arsenal last time out, however, which just above keeps them in touch with the race.

Everton are six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea but do have a game in hand over everyone above them.

If the Toffees win that to move up, the scenery looks very different for them all of a sudden.

Everton may not be done and dusted yet, but there is a quote of 25/1 on them landing a top four finish in Premier League betting* (odds recorded at 04:51 GMT on April 27th, 2021 at bet365).

Everton’s run-in

Aston Villa (home)
West Ham (away
