Betting on Leicester City To Win the Premier League
There are now just eight weeks left of the Premier League season and the dominance of Leicester City at the top of the league continues to surprise fans around the world. However, there is now a sense of inevitability that Leicester will indeed take the title this year and the bookmakers certainly seem to think that they will.
At all the major bookmakers the odds on Leicester city are less than evens, William Hill is offering the longest odds of 5/6 while Bet365 is offering 4/6, Paddy Power is offering 8/11 as is Sky Bet and Coral.
The closest to Leicester is Tottenham Hotspur but their odds are some way behind, the majority of bookmakers have the team at 5/2 to win the league, more than twice less likely than Leicester City.
However, there are still some who believe that Leicester City won’t be able to hold on the top spot for much longer. Some websites have been using statistical algorithms to predict the results of the remaining matches and find that Spurs will overtake Leicester to win the league by two points.
Over the remaining weeks of the season Leicester will face Southampton, West Ham United, Swansea City and Everton at home and will travel to play Crystal Palace, Sunderland, Manchester United and Chelsea.
Earlier this week Sir Alex Ferguson came out to say that the Foxes will in fact win the league and furthermore, he believes that they will do it with three games to spare and if Ferguson is proved correct then it is predicted that bookmakers will be a massive £10 million out of pocket.
