Liverpool is not as strong as the odds suggest, Sumpter told SportsLine. Sure, the Reds made it to the Champions League final last year behind an explosive offense that featured Mohamed Salah, who scored 43 goals in all competitions. However, Liverpool has never won the Premier League title since its inception in 1992.
A new Premier League season gets underway Friday as Leicester City faces Manchester United at Old Trafford. Manchester City, coming off its third Premier League title, enters the season as the favorite to hoist the trophy at 5-8 Premier League odds. Liverpool (4-1), Manchester United (6-1), Chelsea (12-1) and Tottenham (14-1) are also among the favorites to win the Premier League 2019 title.
And the model absolutely crushed the 2018 World Cup. It correctly predicted draws in regulation for Spain-Russia (+280), Croatia-Denmark (+225) and England-Colombia (+215) and was all over France beating Uruguay in regulation to reach the semifinals, not to mention Brazil and Belgium cruising in their Round of 16 matchups. Earlier in the group stage, the model nailed draws for Argentina-Iceland (+385) and Brazil-Switzerland (+360) and predicted Iran upsetting Morocco at +275, just to name a few of its big calls. Anyone who followed it was way, way up.
