Since the inception of the Champions League in it’s current format, finishing in the Top 4 of the Premier League has become essential for the top English clubs. As a result of a Top 4 finish becoming such a big deal, it makes for a very popular betting market.
Top 4 Finish Betting
A top 4 finish now guarantees Premier League clubs a place in the Champions League. The team who finishes 4th in the Premier League table usually has to play a qualifier to get into the Champions League group stages, but it is generally a match against a lower ranked club.
Don’t get Champions League qualification mixed up with Top 4 Finish Betting. For example, Manchester United finished well outside the Top 4 in the Premier League in the 2016/17 season, but qualified for the Champions League via winning the Europa League, which gave the Premier League 5 teams in the Champions League for the 2017/18 season.
In this instance, a bet on Manchester United to finish in the Top 4 would have lost, but a bet on them to qualify for the Champions League would have won.
