2020-21 PFA Player of the Year Odds: Fernandes, Dias the Favorites?!

Posted By High Press 10 on February 9, 2021

As the Premier League season zips past the halfway mark, Manchester City is starting to run away with the title.

However, oddsmakers see Bruno Fernandes as running away with the 2020-21 PFA Player of the Year award.

The Manchester United midfielder is a heavy +125 favorite. The second favorite is surprisingly someone with very little media buzz, City center-back Ruben Dias at +700.

Here’s a look at 2020-21 PFA Player of the Year favorites.

2020-21 PFA Player of the Year Odds

Bruno Fernandes +125Ruben Dias +700Jack Grealish +800
Ilkay G√ľndogan +800Harry Kane +800Kevin de Bruyne +900
Mo Salah +1000Phil Foden +2000Son Heung-Min +2000
Marcus Rashford +4000Raheem Sterling +4000Jamie Vardy +4000

Odds & Ends

  • Fernandes is somewhat mispriced at +125. Man U is streaky. While they currently sit second in the table, is Fernandes still the favorite if they go cold again and finish 4th? Also, over half of Fernandes’ goals are from the spot or free-kicks. That’s not sustainable (actually, this is Man U, so maybe it is) for a full season.
  • Dias as second. Huh. Ok. If City run away with the league again, it would make sense that a FOURMIDABLE wins the PFA award. Gundogan (+800) is having the season of his life and may make more sense. However…
  • …watch out for Phil Foden. CITY HAVE NEVER LOST WITH FODEN IN THE LINE-UP is a media narrative you could hear more. And of City’s top guys, at +2000 he has the most value and upside.
