Man City, Middlesbrough, Blackburn & Luton backed for league success

| 30.10.2017

No other side has had more bets placed on them to win a league title in England than Manchester City.

We can reveal that Pep Guardiola’s side are the most popular side in the country as far as outright betting goes.

That won’t come as much of a surprise to most given that City have racked up an incredible eight Premier League wins on the spin since a 1-1 draw with Everton in August.

After another convincing victory over West Bromwich Albion at the weekend, the Sky Blues are as short as 1/5 for the title.

With those odds not looking very appealing, the 14/1 on them going the whole campaign unbeaten looks a much better shout.

In the Championship, Middlesbrough are leading the way in terms of bets placed on the winner of the division.

Garry Monk’s side are 10 points off the top of the table after a poor start but that hasn’t stopped punters piling in on the North-East side.

You can still get Boro at 20/1 to win the title if you think they can straighten out their inconsistent form.

Dropping down another level into League One and it’s Blackburn Rovers that edge Wigan Athletic in terms of bets placed.

The 1995 Premier League champions are still available at 8/1 to win the division, while the Latics are 4/9 favourites after picking up 36 points from their opening 16 games.

Current table-toppers Shrewsbury Town are also 8/1 to retain their position at the summit come the end of the season.

England’s basement division sees Notts County lead Accrington Stanley in the early standings, but it’s third-placed Luton Town who have been best backed so far.

The Hatters are 4/6 favourites to win the fourth-tier for the first time since 1968.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s no surprise to see the punters side with this City team right now, and the latest odds suggest we could be paying out plenty come May.”
