Betfair betting on winning Premier League:
Man City 2/5 (71% chance for non punters)
Pool 7/2 (22% chance leaving only a 7% chance the winner will come from the other 18 teams)
Spurs 21/1 (4.5%)
ManU 37/1 (2.6%)
Gunners 49/1 (2%)
500/1 bar (+3% margin to layers)
Maybe it will be an exciting 2 horse race but this betting looks a lot like the betting for the Scottish Premiership, also a 2 horse race. I know Leicester worked a miracle, but all the same can we really call this the most competitive league on the planet?
In the last 10 seasons EPL has had 4 different champions.
Italy, Germany have had 2... Juventus and Bayern being especially dominant.
France also has had 4 different champions but PSG have won 7 of those.
This season looks like 2 horse race but over the years the horses are changing, more so than other major leagues.
It seems to be a general trend of concentration since the champions league came in.
Indeed. Didn't trust Man City to beat Tottenham. Im expecting Spurs to push closer this season. Liverpool away to Southampton after extra time Super Cup, look a bit sluggish in areas.
I dont trust Man U to beat Wolves this evening.
After that it was a call between Arsenal and Chelsea. I should have gone for Arsenal, but hindsight is a wonderful thing.
