Wait, So Manchester United Might Really Qualify for the Champions League?

Posted By High Press 10 on February 23, 2020

Maybe it really is a down year for the Premier League.

Save for maybe a total of 180 minutes this season, Manchester United have not looked anything close to Champions League quality. Yet, here we are. And there they are. After paddling Watford 3-0 today, Man U are favorites to play UCL football next campaign.

No, seriously, Manchester United may qualify for the Champions League

To be fair, United’s likely re-entrance to the Champions League is aided by FFP violating Manchester City’s punishment for violating FFP regulations.

But still.

538, who clearly still have Man City’s d in their mouth, give their cross-town rivals the highest probability of the teams 5-20 of qualifying.

On the oddsmaker’s side, with City removed and Liverpool in, Manchester United have the third best qualifying futures:

  • Liverpool: Already qualified
  • Man City: Off the board
  • Leicester: -950
  • Chelsea: -270
  • Manchester United: +240
  • Tottenham: +470
  • Wolves: +1200
  • Sheffield United: +1700

If you’re looking for value there, Wolves are on a run of bottom-dwelling competition and could leap everyone except Chelsea by the end of March. Their up-coming critical match-up is away vs Tottenham next Sunday. If they manage to pull any points there, watch out. Their next matches after Spurs are against Brighton, West Ham, Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Arsenal. None of those teams are good. Grab Wolves now at +1700 if that’s a side you like.
