Manchester United have third best league title odds



Manchester United could have gone top of the table had they found the wherewithal to score a second goal at King Power Stadium this past weekend. Instead, they reside in third place, exactly in line with their odds of winning the league title outright.

Manchester City 5-6

Arsenal 5-2

Manchester United 5-1

Liverpool 16-1

Tottenham Hotspur 25-1

Chelsea 50-1

Leicester City 100-1

Crystal Palace 1500-1

West Ham 2000-1
