Russian Premier League 2020-2021 Betting Odds

The Russian Premier League (RPL) is the top division in the Russian football league system. 16 clubs take part in the RPL, which play a match with each other at home and away: during one season, each team plays 30 rounds. The Russian Premier League is currently ranked 7th in the UEFA table, which gives it the right, starting from the 2021/2022 season, to delegate 2 clubs to the Champions League and 3 clubs to the Europa League.

The new RPL season will take place on a shorter time frame than usual. The first matches of the regular season will be held on August 8-9. At the same time, the season itself will open on August 7 the Russian Super Cup, in which last season's champion “Zenit” St. Petersburg and “Lokomotiv” Moscow (as the team that took second place).

In the future, the RPL will have a tight calendar. In August, the Russian clubs will have to play six matches in four weeks. The participant of the 3rd qualifying round of the Europa League, “Dynamo” Moscow - seven games. A similar schedule of games is due to the spring postponements of matches due to the coronavirus pandemic. During the season, four pauses are planned for the matches of the national teams: August 31 - September 8, October 5-14, November 9-18 and March 22-31.

The next champion and main underdogs: bookmaker's opinion

According to experts from Russian bookmakers, “Zenit” will be able to defend its champion title without any problems. If a club from St. Petersburg takes the third consecutive championship title, then the bet will play with odds of 1.45, if another RPL club becomes the champion, then the bet will play with odds of 2.85.

In the second place, according to bookmakers, are two clubs at once: FC “Lokomotiv” and FK “Krasnodar”. Both clubs represent the Russian championship in the Champions League, and the winning odds are 8. The probability of winning these teams is about 12%. You can bet on the fact that the club from Moscow and the team from the south of Russia will be in the top three for 1.65. In percentage, this is 60%. “Lokomotiv” finished the last season 15 points behind the champion, while “Krasnodar” was 20 points behind in the final standings. In the course of last season, “Lokomotiv” scored four points in games against blue-white-blue and beat “Zenit” in the Super Cup 2019 match. Probably, “Zenit” will have the opportunity to take revenge.

“CSKA” Moscow is in third place with odds of 10. Viktor Goncharenko's team finished the season in 4th place for the second year in a row. The team's result has not improved, but the game has become more integral, and the players have become more experienced.

With an odd of 20, you can bet on the championship of the capital "Spartak" Moscow. The “Red and whites” finished the last season in 7th place and for the first time since the 2015/2016 season were left without a European Cup. You can bet that these teams will break into the top three in 1.7 and 2.95, respectively.

Least of all bookmakers believe in the success of “Khimki” and “Rotor” Volgograd, which made their way to the top league in Russia at the end of the last season. You can bet on the fact that these teams will be able to win the championship for 2500.0. Much more likely, these two teams will have to struggle to survive in RPL.

Who will be the top scorer?

Most of the Russian bookmakers have opened a line bet for the top scorer of the Russian Premier League of the 2020/21 season. “Zenit” forwards Sardar Azmoun (Iran) and Artem Dzyuba (Russia) are considered the favorites of the race. It is proposed to bet on their victory for 3.00.

If “Spartak” forward Alexander Kokorin (Russia) scores the most goals in the championship, the bet will be played with odds of 5.00. This is followed by Fedor Chalov (Russia) from “CSKA” (7.00) and Markus Berg (Sweden) from “Krasnodar” (10.00). At the same time, Kokorin's individual total is set at 12.5 goals, while for Dzyuba and Azmoun - 16.5. Note that the 29-year-old Kokorin at the very beginning of August has been signed by “Spartak” as a free agent. The agreement was signed according to the "3 + 1" scheme.
