Man City’s landmark ruling has just been revealed...
Bookmakers have re-released their odds for who will finish in the top four of the Premier League, following the lifting of Man City’s ban this morning.
With Liverpool and Man City occupying the two top spots in the league, Manchester United are now the favourite to sneak into the Champions League places.
United have been cut from 2/1 into 1/7 to finish in the top four, indicating an implied probability of 87.5%.
Frank Lampard’s Chelsea seemed all but set to qualify for the Champions League in his debut season, and are 4/11 odds-on to do so.
Leicester’s defeat to relegation-threatened Bournemouth, coupled with a horrendous run of form, has seen them drift like a barge in the market.
Just weeks ago, the Foxes were 1/7 to finish in the top four. Following their shocking start to the season, Brendan Rodgers side are now 2/1 outsiders.
Wolves are on the periphery of the market at 14/1 but have been well supported. A total of 14.3% of bets in that market in the last week have backed Nuno to secure top four.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “While the news of Manchester City's ban reversal is huge news in its own right, it also has a significant impact over in the red side of the city.
"United, who are very much in the midst of a ferocious battle for the Champions League next season, have now lost their 5th place safety net, meaning they must finish above either Chelsea or Leicester to partake in Europe's premier competition next season."
