Liverpool favourites to win Premier League
Liverpool now 3.25 with BetVictor to win 2016/17 title after reaching summit with Chelsea also cut for major honours.
Despite playing six of their eleven matches on the road including trips to Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea, Liverpool have reached the latest international break sitting top of the Premier League after a return of 26 points.
It’s been an outstanding start for Jurgen Klopp’s side who have scored thirty goals in their eleven matches, with Watford the latest team to feel the wrath of an attacking side who have goals in all departments.
Philippe Coutinho was the outstanding performer in Liverpool’s most recent win, although Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are all proving to be outstanding performers, with Jordan Henderson in the engine room behind them.
BetVictor have been really impressed by Liverpool to the extent that they now go 3.25 about them winning the title, although there are reasons why this bookmaker are favourites about the Reds.
As sponsor of Liverpool FC, we’re sure that BetVictor have seen plenty of money for the Merseyside team to win the title and it’s also good PR to illustrate that they regard them as favourites.
Liverpool are a bigger 3.50 with bet365 to win the title although question marks remain over their defence which once again conceded against the Hornets. It means that Klopp’s men have only kept one clean sheet all term although the German won’t care too much about that stat while his side are scoring goals.
Manchester City were strong favourites to win the Premier League after reeling off a string of victories although Pep Guardiola’s men slipped up again on Saturday when drawing 1-1 with Middlesbrough and they are now on the drift.
William Hill offer 3.20 about the Citizens winning the title and they are another team who aren’t keeping clean sheets, with their Champions League endeavours playing a part in affecting league form.Chelsea are the other big market movers after a crushing 5-0 win against Everton and Antonio Conte’s team are certainly managing to shut out the opposition, with the new 3-4-3 formation working wonders.
Bet365 now go 4.00 that we see the London side claim the title and we must remember that they were facile champions only two years ago, with their Italian manager now getting the best from players that have previously steered the club to major honours.
Eden Hazard looks a likely contender for PFA Player of the Year, with Diego Costa maintaining form and discipline to help his side into a good position.
Arsenal and Tottenham played out a 1-1 draw at the Emirates and bet365 now go 7.50 about the Gunners winning the Premier League title, with Spurs drifting to 21.00 on the outright market as their winless run continues.
On the flip side, they are unbeaten in the top flight this term, although Manchester United are now just three points behind them and Jose Mourinho’s side are 23.00 (Ladbrokes ) to win the title.
