Man City Best Backed Team After Jack Grealish, Harry Kane Transfer Rumors

Manchester City dominated the 2020/2021 Premier League season finishing up with 86 points, 12 clear of their nearest rivals Man United. Pep Guardiola’s team were always going to be strong favorites to retain the title next season due to this dominance, but with recent transfer rumors circulating, they’re now even stronger in the Premier League odds betting markets. 

In recent days, Man City have been backed into as short as -161 to win the 2021/22 Premier League title again, which makes them clear favorites over the 2nd choice Chelsea, who can be wagered at +550. The sportsbooks don’t even think it’s going to be close.

But why have their odds shortened? Well that’s simple, transfer rumors. It’s been reported in the press that they’re likely to sign both Harry Kane and Jack Grealish. Kane is the best striker in the Premier League and guarantees goals and Grealish is one of the best prospects in the league and has been seen recently impressing for England in Euro 2020.

Jack Grealish Odds To Join Man City

In the UK, you can wager on transfers happening. Currently the best odds on Jack Grealish joining Man City are 2/5, which translates to a 71.4% chance of the transfer happening, but if the reports this morning are anything to go by, those 2/5 odds could be in danger of shortening dramatically.

Harry Kane Odds To Join Man City

Harry Kane’s odds on joining Man City aren’t quite as short as Jack Grealish. The best Harry Kane odds available are 11/10, which implies a 47.6% chance of the transfer happening. This deal looks doesn’t look done yet, but you can expect the talk to intensify after Harry Kane has finished international duty at Euro 2020 with England.
