Thomas Tuchel Chelsea were 6/1 in pre-season but have now become favouirtes to win their first league title since 2017 but face competition from Man City.
After a strong start to the season Chelsea are currently favourites
Chelsea have been installed as the new clear favourites to win the Premier League this season, following a flurry of bets on the West London side.
Prior to the season kicking off, Thomas Tuchel’s outfit were 6/1 in the betting to lift their first title since the 16/17 season.
However, a raft of quality signings and a scintillating start to the season has seen that price drop dramatically, now into just 2/1.
Over the last seven days, around 23% of all bets placed on the winner have backed the Blues, making them the most popular with punters.

Who are the other contenders
That means Chelsea have leapfrogged previous favourites Man City in the market, with Pep Guardiola’s outfit drifting out to 11/5 best price.
There are another two sides seriously being considered by bookies, with Liverpool a tad longer at 18/5 best price with SBK.
Finally, Manchester United round off the shorter price selections, with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo, now find themselves at just 6/1.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Chelsea’s comfortable win over Spurs last weekend has proved popular with punters, with money continuing to come in the Premier League winner market.
“Since the weekend, almost 1-in-4 of all bets have backed the Blues for title glory, meaning they’ve now replaced Manchester City as favourites for the first time this season.”
