Odds update: Tottenham title odds cut, Sunderland doomed
With a bumper haul of eight Premier League games on Saturday, there were plenty of twists and turns to enjoy. So, what has it done to the odds?
Few would have called Chelsea’s home defeat to Crystal Palace, which, coupled with Tottenham’s victory away at Burnley, slashed the gap at the top to seven points.
And it means the Blues’ odds of winning the league still look pretty good at 1/10, but that’s in from 1/25 before a ball was kicked yesterday.
It’s had the reverse impact on Tottenham too, with their title odds slashed from 18/1 to a far more plausible 8/1.
Liverpool’s impressive 3-1 win over Everton in the Merseyside derby has moved Jurgen Klopp’s men into 2/9 to secure a top-four finish this term.
But as Manchester United laboured to another home draw, this time against West Brom, we go 9/4 that Jose Mourinho’s side finish in the leading quartet.
At the other end of the table, it looks like Sunderland are all-but gone following their 1-0 loss at Watford.
Our traders certainly think so, with 1/50 the latest price on the Black Cats to be relegated this season.
One team who have erased nearly all their relegation fears though is Leicester City, who secured a fourth win in succession under Craig Shakespeare.
The reigning champions are now a pretty large 40/1 to go down.
Palace’s surprise win at Stamford Bridge extended their odds of the drop to 6/1, but it’s not quite such good news for Hull.
The Tigers may have picked up a crucial victory at home to West Ham yesterday, but our odds of 4/7 suggest they’re still in very big trouble.
