Liverpool are now the shortest price they’ve ever been to win the Premier League this season, with bookmakers forced to shorten their price this morning into 2/5 in the ‘Premier League Winner’ market.
Following their 3-1 victory over current Premier League Champions and main rivals to Liverpool’s title ambitions Manchester City, bookmakers across the country were forced to dash to the traders floor to cut the price of Jurgen Klopps men to win the league.
Before their impressive win, secured with goals from Fabinho, Salah & Mane, Liverpool could be backed as big as 5/6 to take the title – a price that now seems massive value considering Liverpool now have a nine point lead over City, and an 8 point lead over closest rivals Leicester City, who lie in second place in the table.
Whataretheodds.co.uk spokeman Callum Dunn commented:
“Its clear the clash at Anfield would be pivotal – and it definitely appeared to be in the view of the bookmakers. Punters are now confident that this really could be Liverpool’s year, and their current price of 2/5 shows how confident punters are. Would you back against Liverpool winning the title after that performance? Not me”
It was the way in which Liverpool won the game which impressed – making the current champions look decidedly ordinary, and as we approach the international break its clear there is a new found optimism that the title could well be on its way to Anfield – 30 years too late for many.
