Here are the top 5 most backed Premier League teams this gameweek.

1. Chelsea - 72.73% @ Southampton (Saturday)

Chelsea @ -132

Under Frank Lampard it looked like Chelsea were going to struggle to get back into the Champions League next season. Not any more. Since Thomas Tuchel arrived in West London they've been in great form. They look stronger at the back, they're dominating possession and clinically picking teams off. They now sit in 4th spot and are only four points away from Manchester United who sit in second. They face a Southampton team who've struggled over the past few weeks and bettors are confident that they'll win again on Saturday)

2. Burnley - 71.43% vs. West Brom (Saturday)

Burnley @ +105

It's rare that a team who sit in 15th are so heavily backed but it speaks volumes about the form of both teams. Burnley look like they've improved as the season has gone on and Sean Dyche's team are now climbing the table and look like they could overtake Crystal Palace and Southampton soon as they march toward the top half. West Brom meanwhile are abject and haven't yet seen a Big Sam bounce and they look unlikely to climb out of the relegation zone.

3. Aston Villa - 62.5% vs. Leicester (Sunday)

Aston Villa @ +188

Villa are eighth in the league and are heavily backed to beat the Foxes at Villa Park on Sunday. Leicester are +148 favorites but it's Villa who have taken the imagination and offer value at nearly 2/1 to win.

4. Man Utd - 61.11% vs. Newcastle (Sunday)

Man Utd @ -335

Newcastle aren't in the relegation zone, which feels amazing given their struggles. They travel to Old Trafford to face Man Utd and nobody is expecting anything from the game, especially after Man Utd's great performance in the Europa League on Thursday. The sportsbooks make Man Utd the strongest favorites of the weekend. Their -335 odds imply a 77% chance that Man Utd secure three points and given recent games you'd struggle to disagree.

5. Fulham - 58.82% vs. Sheffield United (Saturday)

Fulham @ +123

This could be the first 'six-pointer' of the season, with 18th place Fulham hosting 20th place Sheffield United. Both of these two sides have shown flickers of improvement in recent games but bettors believe that Scott Parker's men will be able to secure the win in this crunch game.
