Man City attract the money in the 2011/12 Premier League title betting

| 17.05.2011

The euphoria surrounding Manchester City’s FA Cup victory seems to be catching on as punters pile on Roberto Mancini’s side in the 2011/12 Premier League betting.

Having opened in the market at 11/2, Manchester City’s 2011/12 Premier League title odds are now just 9/2 as the FA Cup winners force Manchester United and Chelsea’s title odds to drift.

The support for Manchester City means Manchester United are out to 13/8 from 6/4 to win the title and Chelsea are out to 2/1 from 7/4 with Arsenal remaining available at 7/1 and Liverpool solid at 10/1.

The 2011/12 Premier League betting would suggest that next season we will see a three-way race for the title, but considering the way Liverpool have finished the season under Kenny Dalglish, it’s hard to write them off.

Arsenal’s failure to last the distance has hurt their 2011/12 title odds and with both Manchester City and Liverpool preparing to spend big in the summer, Arsenal face a real battle for the Champions League spots next season.

Tottenham Hotspur’s 2011/12 title odds of 33/1 make Harry Redknapp’s side unlikely to be challenging at the top of the table, but Spurs are 11/4 to finish in the top four next season as punters prepare for a six-way battle for the top four spots.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea look guaranteed for a top four spot with odds of 1/33 and 1/25 respectively, while Manchester City are 1/3 for a top four spot, Arsenal are 1/2 and Liverpool are 10/11.

Whether it’s euphoria that’s driving Manchester City’s title odds down or whether there is genuine belief that the blue half of Manchester can oust the red half, punters are in for a huge summer of spending as the league’s top teams prepare for what looks certain to be a great season.
