Get best prices on Man City or Chelsea winning Premier League

| 10.08.2012

As another mouth-watering season of English football lies in prospect, Ladbrokes are offering punters the chance to back a league winner at a better price than all competitors.

With bets allowed up to a stake of £50, Ladbrokes customers will be able to select league winners either as single or multiple bets, and a wide array of tempting options are available throughout the top four tiers of English football.

Manchester City clinched a maiden Premier League title last term, and they are 13/10 to retain their crown, though punters backing them would hope for a safer return than last season, when it took a final-day injury-time winner to land the trophy.

Their local rivals Manchester United are 13/5 to re-assert their dominance on the top tier meanwhile, as they go in search of a 20th English title after a rare trophy-less campaign in 2011/2012.

Champions League winners Chelsea are thought to be the only other serious contenders for the title, with the Blues 5/1 shots to garner league silverware under Roberto Di Matteo.

Elsewhere, recently-relegated Bolton enjoy 15/2 favouritism for Championship glory, and in Owen Coyle they have a manager who has experienced promotion from the league in the past, albeit via the play-offs.

Other relegated sides Wolves and Blackburn are also favourable, at 9/1 and 12/1 respectively, while 8/1 Leicester will be fancied by many after heavy summer investment.

Lower down the ladder, Sheffield United are the leading fancies at 6/1 to claim the League One title at the second attempt, while Paolo Di Canio’s Swindon are 9/1 to win consecutive league championships.

Big spending Fleetwood are 6/1 second-favourites for League Two success meanwhile after last season’s promotion from the Blue Square Premier, and a rumoured loan move for Joey Barton could aid their hopes no end.

Rotherham are 7/2 favourites to top the table though, and will hope that Lewis Grabban, who hit 21 goals for the Millers last season, can fire them to glory.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
