While the 2018-19 Premier League season just ended, with one of the most thrilling races in history, the odds are already out for next season.
Manchester City, which became the first team to repeat as Premier League champions since the 2007-08/ 08-09 Manchester United squad, has opened as prohibitive favorites to become just the second club in the Premier League era to win a triumvirate of titles.
The Cityzens opened as -137 to retain their title on the BetStars site, with Liverpool a distant second at +260. The two teams just battled down to the final day, with Manchester City pipping the Reds to the crown by a single point, 98-97.
The introduction of VAR next season may play a role, but many people think that the strength of the City squad, which will undoubtably end up stronger at the end of the transfer window, will be too much for the rest of the competition.
Tottenham is the third favorite at +1400, while Manchester United is listed at +1800.
