Liverpool leapfrog Man City as favourites to win Premier League title

Man City's defeat to Leicester saw them drift to 11/8 with several bookmakers, while the Foxes have been cut from a huge price.

Liverpool are the new favourites to win the Premier League 2020/21 title, cut from 6/4 into as short as even money over the past 24 hours.

That movement sees them switch places with pre-season favourites Man City, who have drifted from odds-on across the board to a best price of 11/8.

Pep Guardiola’s men slipped to a stunning defeat at the Etihad yesterday, beaten 5-2 by Leicester City. The hosts conceded three penalties, two of which Jamie Vardy converted as part of a hat-trick, and were thoroughly outplayed by the visitors.

Leicester City are the other major market movers since that emphatic victory. Brendan Rodgers’ side have been cut from 200/1 to a best price of 40/1 and received a whopping 40% of bets on the market in the last 24 hours.

New favourites Liverpool are expected to shorten further should they beat Arsenal at Anfield on Monday night. However, Arsenal will be looking to repeat their success in the Community Shield this time last month. 

The Gunners are currently a best price of 28/1 for the title, now close behind Chelsea (25/1) following their frantic draw with West Brom on Saturday.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Plenty were surprised to see firms offering 9/4 on Liverpool before the season kicked off, and anyone who picked up that price is sitting pretty now.

“The likes of Leicester and Everton look set to make this season fiercely competitive and Man City can’t afford too many performances like yesterday’s. A win at Arsenal tonight and the defending champions will already be in pole position.”
