Liverpool account for almost 40% of bets struck on the title race

Punters tip Liverpool for the title - Blackburn, Newcastle and Villa for the drop

William Hil have analysed bets struck on the Premier League title and relegation races so far, and discovered that Liverpool have accounted for almost 40% of bets struck so far on the title, and Blackburn Rovers have attracted the greatest percentage of relegation bets taken thus far - 20.43%.

The two lists - derived from bets struck online, although they are closely mirrored by our shop bets- show an intriguing and striking convergence from the betting odds - Liverpool are only 10/1 fifth favourites for the title in our outright odds, while Blackburn are 3/1 sixth favourites for the drop - Villa, third best backed to go down, are actually joint seventh favourites to win the title, while Norwich, 7th best backed for the title are second favourites to be relegated!' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

‘It will be fascinating to look back with hindsight, and see whether the bookies or the punters have got it right.'
