Betting on Premier League finishing positions is a huge market. Nobody can predict the exact position of every team in the league but there are many who feel the have a really good take on who will make the top 4 and which 3 teams will be relegated at the end of the season.
Top 4 and bottom 3 positions fluctuate throughout the year – a team can go on a winning streak, win 5 games and get 15 points or go on a bad streak and get mixture of 1 and zero points. For this reason, predictions can look really good one week and miles off the next - that is the fun of English Premier League betting, anything can happen, table positions can change dramatically from week to week. But you can rest assured that when the season ends, the team positions will go from 1 to 20 and you could win big if your top 4 or bottom 3 predictions turn out to be correct!
The popularity of the bets on Top 4 has increased dramatically in recent times as Champions League qualification has become for clubs an unmissable season objective, almost an obsession, in some cases. Champions League money has thus made Premier league final table betting heavily focussed on these 4 positions. Many of the same clubs tend to swap positions in the top 4 each year but there is always a possibility that some unfancied team can go on a run and grab that 4th spot.
