English Premier League Betting Update PT 2- By A.J. Ryder on April 16, 2017 20:29 GMT
It really appears to be that Tottenham are sitting poised in the catbird seat with just a win and a draw separating the sides in terms of points. It wasn't so much Chelsea's loss today, but the manner of the loss, that will really go on to concern some of their fans over whether they will really be able to see out the league season with the same type of poise and veracity that they have been exhibiting up until thus far.
Several bookmakers – and there are some of whom have already paid out on Chelsea actually winning the thing – have eased Chelsea out to a 2/11 price tag – which is certainly quite a bit shorter than the 1/9 they had been trading at for a while coming into this contest. With more than a few games to play until mid-May when things wrap up, we really could be looking at one of the biggest grandstand finishes in quite some time.
And, of course, it has something to do with Mourinho.
Punters can also find Tottenham available at a solid price of about 9/2 with most major bookmakers though there are a few who have shortened them down into a 4/1 margin and you can expect that to drop as the overanalysis will likely pick up and get even more aggressive as we go forward into a few days of no actual football being played.
Manchester City are still way out of this thing with the bookmakers listing them at a 100/1 price tag to somehow pip both Spurs and Chelsea to the English Premier League title. While you would say that there is very little odds that happening – we all know there wasn't a hell of a big chance of Leicester winning the league last year either but, well, here we are.
Liverpool are also worth a look with a price of about 250/1 on the top end to pull off one of the most dramatic English Premier League title victories in the history of the competition and, though it is not mathematically impossible, it will require near perfect play for them and a fair amount of luck along the way with Spurs and Chelsea and City all required to drop points.
Manchester United are a 1000/1 shot to win the title with a few bookmakers and their story is very similar to what's going on with Liverpool – it's not totally impossible but would require lightning to strike in a few different spots all in sequence.
Arsenal have plummeted to a 2500/1 shot to win the League.
