Everton’s impressive 3-0 win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Monday night has prompted punters to back Ronald Koeman’s side to win the Premier League.
The Toffees were as big as 150/1 with Bet Stars before last night’s game, who have now shortened their price to 50/1 while BetFred and Betway had them at 125/1 and are now offering 66/1.
Their performance last night and the fact they are still unbeaten in the league seems to have persuaded punters to take a chance given the price that was available. You can still get them at 100/1 with William Hill and SportingBet.
Everton are currently third in the table at this early stage and while backing them to win the title seems an optimistic bet they are already looking like a formidable team under Koeman and a top six finish at 3/1 looks a more realistic bet.
With just four games played there seems to be a lot of interest already in the Premier League winner market where Manchester City remain favourites for the title at 10/11 with Manchester United and Chelsea at 11/2.
