On August 9, the 2019-20 English Premier League season will begin. After winning the championship in back-to-back years, Manchester City (-175) opens as the betting favorites to win it all three years in a row, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Last season featured one of the toughest, most exciting battles in recent history, with Manchester City and Liverpool fighting until the very end for the championship. Manchester City ultimately won, with 98 points, but Liverpool came close with 97 points, losing just once all season.

We could be in for another battle this year, as Liverpool (+220) has the second-best odds to win it all.

However, there is a big drop-off after these two. Tottenham is third (+1600) Chelsea is fourth (+2600) and Manchester United is fifth (+2900).

Manchester City is currently favored to take home its third straight championship, but with teams like Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea likely poised for another run, it certainly won't come easily.
