Chelsea’s 4-0 demolition of Tottenham today has seen them now go odds on in the betting to be this season’s Premier League Champions.
10/11 with Bet365 is now the best price available on Jose Mourinho’s men to win the title, with one bookie (Ladbrokes) as short as 4/6.
Obviously Chelsea have played more games than their closest rivals. Their nearest rivals, Liverpool and Arsenal, are both now 7 points behind with a game in hand. Manchester City are 9 points behind, but have 3 games in hand, and they also have a superior goal difference.
The fact that City will go top if they do win all their 3 extra matches isn’t counting for too much with the punters, as they seem to believe that points in the bag are more vital at this stage of the season. City are a best price of 2/1 with Betfair to overhaul Chelsea and take their second title in 3 years.
Paddy Power have a market up on Chelsea Trophies at the moment. They are offering 10/11 that Chelsea end the season with nothing, and they go 16/1 on Chelsea claiming a Premier League and Champions League double.
