Liverpool Backed To Provide Premier League Title Twist
Liverpool still require a huge upset of the odds to win the Premier League despite being backed to provide a dramatic late twist after their victory over Southampton on Tuesday.
There was an early scare for the Reds at St. Mary’s after Nathan Redmond put the hosts ahead in their penultimate game, but former Saint Takumi Minamino hauled Liverpool level before Joel Matip’s second half winner ensured the title race will go right down to the wire.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were cut into 9/2 from 13/2 after the final whistle to be crowned champions on Sunday evening
…as they know a home victory over Wolves will require Manchester City to take all three points from their final game against Aston Villa at the Etihad.
LATEST PREMIER LEAGUE OUTRIGHT ODDS ARE ON BOYLESPORTS.COM
Pep Guardiola’s reigning champions, who have a one-point lead going into the final round matches, are hot 1/7 shots to put the seal on a fourth Premier League title in five seasons.
At the other end of the table, Leeds United are odds-on shots at 4/6 to drop back to the Championship despite currently sitting outside the relegation zone. Burnley, who are just one point behind Jesse Marsch’s side, have the advantage of two games to rescue themselves with a trip to Aston Villa to come on Thursday night before they host Newcastle on the final day.
The betting suggests that will be enough as they are odds-against at 13/8 to be relegated, while Everton are 13/2 shots for the drop ahead of two remaining fixtures against Crystal Palace and Arsenal.
Tottenham meanwhile crashed into 1/25 from 8/11 to finish in the top four following Arsenal’s defeat at Newcastle as Antonio Conte knows a draw against Norwich will be enough to secure Champions League football next season barring an extremely unlikely swing of goal difference.
