The Premier League season will come to an end Sunday, with all 20 teams kicking off at 11 a.m. ET.
Much of the table is already relatively set in stone, but there are two-horse races for three different placements that have yet to be determined across the English top flight.
The most important one, of course, is for the title winner. Liverpool need a win against Wolves and for Manchester City to drop points against Aston Villa to usurp the defending champions and claim their second league title in three seasons.
City will claim the title with a win over Villa. If City draw, they would need Liverpool to draw or lose their game in order to lock down England’s most prestigious trophy. Liverpool can also steal the title with a draw against Wolves and a City loss.
So, a City win is all they need and the price on that is -600 at DraftKings.
Overall, City have -750 (88% implied probability)) odds at the sportsbook to win their fourth title in five seasons. Those odds had been as short as -1000 (91% probability) before Liverpool came-from-behind to beat Southampton earlier this week.
Liverpool’s odds to finagle the title are +450 (18%) after having been as long as +750 earlier in the week.
Meanwhile, the race for top 4 and a Champions League spot will come down to the final weekend as well.
Tottenham’s win against Arsenal last week was a monumental one, but Spurs still needed their North London rivals to trip up down the stretch.
The Gunners obliged, looking flat and lifeless in a 2-0 drubbing at Newcastle on Monday.
While Arsenal had been -320 (76%) favorites to finish in the top 4 before their bout with Tottenham eight days ago, those odds went to roughly -110 (52%) after their loss.
Spurs’ win against Burnley — in conjunction with Arsenal’s L — have sent those odds plummeting.
The Gunners are now +1200 (8%) underdogs to finish in the top 4. They need a win and a Tottenham loss to Norwich City, the last place team in the table.
Arsenal could also theoretically make their first Champions League since 2017 if Tottenham draw, but would need to win by 15 goals, something no team has done during the Premier League era.
The last race of note is for top 6, which determines the last automatic qualification for the Europa League.
Manchester United need a win against Crystal Palace to ensure their spot in Europe’s second-most prestigious tournament. A draw will suffice should West Ham draw or lose at Brighton. West Ham will get through with a win and if United draw or lose.
United’s odds of finishing sixth are -500 (83%), down from as long as -390 a week ago. West Ham’s odds improved on the backs of a draw against City, in which they gave up a 2-0 lead, but still managed a point.
Łukasz Fabiański saved a Riyad Mahrez penalty in the dying minutes to secure the Hammers a point. Their odds shortened from +425 (19%) underdogs to +300 (25%) to secure their second straight season in the Europa League.
