Heading into the November international break, Premier League title odds have gotten congested at the top.
Typically by November, one or two contenders have pulled away in the futures market.
Not this season.
With COVID, injuries and a congested schedule, the top teams have failed to separate themselves. The bunching at the top of the table is a stark contrast to the past few seasons, when Liverpool and Manchester City were pulling away from the pack.
Here’s a look at Premier League title odds at the international break.

Odds & Ends
- Liverpool have slightly edged past Man City again as favorites. However, both are far from being odds-on. Bookmakers view them as essentially even.
- Chelsea and Tottenham have taken major leaps since the October break. Chelsea were +1800. Spurs slightly better at +1200.
- The biggest fallers? That would be a fool’s gold Everton side. Since their dickless attacks on Liverpool, the Toffees have failed to register a W. They’ve gone from +1800 to +10000.
- Oddsmakers are becoming believers again in Leicester though. They’ve leaped up from +10000 to +2500.
