It’s very crowded at the top of the English Premier League table right now. It’s anybody’s race to win the league title, and Chelsea FC have thrust themselves into the conversation with an extremely dominant 4-0 home win over Manchester United today. The Blues, a trendy sleeper pick to win the league title this preseason, are now in fourth place with 19 points, and looking like they’re truly for real.
They’re just one point behind the three way logjam of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester atop the table.
Just one point separates the three teams in goal differential, as City are +11, the Gunners +10 and the Reds +9. Chelsea FC are tied with fellow London side Tottenham Hotspur with 19 points, but Antonio Conte’s side has a +1 goal differential on Spurs. In other words, it’s all wide open.
That’s great for online casinos, because things are getting really interesting right now. It’s a five team race, so there’s all kinds of ways you can go with your league title wagering. As of now, Chelsea seems to have to fourth best odds across the board.
Most sports books are giving Chelsea 6-1 odds, according to Odds Checker, with a few other casinos going 13-2. City, the consensus preseason title favorites, still have the best odds, with 6-4 and 11-8 the most common. Liverpool currently have the second best odds, usually checking in at 3-1 or 7-2.
Arsenal have the third best set of odds, usually coming in at 5-1 or 11-2. After Chelsea FC, the next best is Tottenham Hotspur at 9-1 or 10-1, followed by Manchester United, who received the second best title odds in the summer. The Red Devils are now all the way down to 20-1.
