The new Premier League season may be in touching distance but there has already been a flurry of betting on the outright winner and relegation markets, with bookmakers reporting today that they have taken more bets on newly-promoted Leeds winning the title than defending champions Liverpool.
Marcelo Bielsa’s newly promoted Leeds side are available at around 150/1 to win the 2020/2021 Premier League – which has accounted for 11% of all bets in the outright winner market.
The reigning Premier League champions Liverpool, however, have taken just under 10% of the market, and are backable at a price of 9/4.
Spokesman for Ladbrokes, Alex Apati comments
…Punters are clearly going for value when it comes to picking this season’s Premier League winner with plenty avoiding the likes of Liverpool and Man City in favour of Chelsea, Arsenal and even Leeds…
In a twist to the outright betting, Leeds actually face Liverpool in their season opener on the 12th September. The match, which kicks off at 17:30 sees Liverpool as overwhelming favourites at 2/7, while Leeds can be backed at 10/1 to take all three points back to Elland Road.
Whataretheodds.co.uk spokesman Spencer James comments:
…Its great to see Leeds Utd back in the Premier League, and there’s no more difficult opener than a visit to the Champions at Anfield. Could Leeds do a Leicester? Its very unlikely but its clear to all that bookmakers are wary of being stung again – you won’t see prices of 5000/1 being banded about this time around…
The Premier League returns, once more behind closed doors on Saturday 12th September, with Fulham taking on Arsenal in the early game at 12:30.
Manchester City are the current favourites to reclaim their Premier League crown, while current champions Liverpool are available to back at 9/4.
Premier League 2020/2021 Outright Winner Odds:
Man City 8/11
Man Utd 14/1
West Ham 500/1
Aston Villa 750/1
Sheff Utd 750/1
Crystal Palace 1000/1
West Brom 1000/1
