We’re eight games down in the Premier League season but we’ve already had some sizeable shifts in some of the betting markets, we take you through where the money has been going so far.

Premier League winner odds

There’s a three-way tie at the top of the table but there’s still no doubt who punters think will win the title as Manchester City remain odds-on shots.

Sky Bet’s Jack Abbott explains..

Manchester City opened up at 8/13 but drifted out to 4/5 following Liverpool’s strong start as well as Kevin De Bruyne’s injury. They are now 4/6.

Liverpool opened at 15/2 in February. They gradually shortened from 15/2 to 4/1 due to the signing of Van Dijk and their Champions League form at the back end of last season. Now they’re 9/4 following an unbeaten start.

Manchester United opened at 9/2 in February but drifted to 7/1 in August following their inability to sign either Maguire, Boateng or Alderweireld. A poor start to the campaign now sees them at 100/1.

Chelsea were 14/1 pre-season and are now 15/2 following their unbeaten start."


Our verdict:
Chelsea have been the big surprise so far but they look far too reliant on Eden Hazard to see them making a concerted challenge throughout the season. Liverpool's defence has been far better than their attack so far and they'll need the front three to step it up to try and overhaul Man City who, at this stage at least, are still the team to beat with Kevin De Bruyne set to give them a huge boost when he returns from injury.


Premier League title betting odds

  • 4/6 - Man City
  • 9/4 - Liverpool
  • 15/2 - Chelsea
  • 33/1 - Tottenham
  • 40/1 - Arsenal
  • 100/1 - Man Utd

Premier League relegation odds

Neil Warnock
Neil Warnock's Cardiff are yet to win a game

Cardiff, Newcastle and Huddersfield are all winless so far and, despite winning just once, that means there’s faith that Southampton will not be involved in the relegation scrap.

Sky Bet’s Jack Abbott adds..

Cardiff were odds on at the start of the season (10/11). Now 2/9 to be relegated.

Newcastle have moved from 4/1 to 9/4 following Newcastle’s winless start.

Southampton are now 7/2 from 9/1 to be relegated


Our verdict:
Cardiff finishing bottom was one of our pre-season tips and they're still looking the most likely to prop up the rest come May, with Huddersfield looking like keeping them company throughout the season mainly down to their goal-scoring woes. Newcastle are in a bit more trouble than imagined and should Rafa Benitez feel like he's had enough, they would be up against it. Those three right now show no signs of being able to drag themselves clear any time soon.


Premier League relegation odds

  • 2/9 - Cardiff
  • 2/5 - Huddersfield
  • 15/8 - Burnley
  • 2/1 - Fulham

Premier League top scorer odds

Chelsea's Eden Hazard
Chelsea's Eden Hazard has been in great form but Harry Kane is still favourite

Eden Hazard has surprised everyone with his goal scoring start to the season, and that has been reflected in a huge cut in his price to win the Golden Boot.

Sky Bet’s Jack Abbott says..

Current top scorer Eden Hazard has moved from 33/1 to 11/2 to be top scorer.

Harry Kane was the favourite pre-season at 2/1 and is still at the top of the betting at 5/2.

Glenn Murray is joint-second in the top scorer charts but you can still get 66/1 on him having been 100/1 pre-season.

Aleksandar Mitrovic has also scored five goals and is now priced at 33/1 having been 100/1 pre-season.

Sergio Aguero is another one on five goals and is priced at 10/3 having been 8/1 pre-season.


Our verdict:
Hazard's been incredible so far for Chelsea and it's not a huge stretch to see him having a Mo Salah season, as he's also their first-choice penalty taker and can bang in the odd free kick here and there as well. Salah is only slightly behind his tally from this time last year, but he doesn't look likely to challenge the top scorers. Kane will be there or thereabouts and is rightly favourite but Aguero looks the main danger. Watch out for Arsenal pair Lacazette and Aubameyang who have both scored four and are getting better and better.


Premier League top scorer odds

  • 5/2 - Harry Kane
  • 10/3 - Sergio Aguero
  • 11/2 - Eden Hazard
  • 13/2 - Mo Salah
