Sky Sports Odds on League Title Favo(u)rites

August 25, 2009


He may be City but he keeps that to himself enough for me to enjoy tea with Wedderburn every morning before work.

Anyway, Sky Sports News and my favey Mr Wedderburn have released their odds for Premiership Title this season.

And the Results:

Chelsea                  11/8

Man United         11/4

Arsenal                 5/1

Liverpool             8/1

Man City               14/1

Tottenham           33/1

I don’t know how to read odds.  Maybe someone can teach me sometime.  And also how to play poker.

    ahh kate.

    lets take arsenal’s as an example. they’re the third favourite behind united and chelsea at 5 to 1. basically the first number is the “multiplier” and the second number represents your bet.

    if you put $10 on arsenal to win the premier league, your winnnings would be $50 (5 x $10) and you’d receive your $10 along with your winnings too.

    united to win is 11/4 (an easier read than 2.75/1) so $10 on them would bring you $27.50.

    chelsea’s is on 1.375/1, winning would be $13.75 with a $10 bet.

    to explain poker, we’ll need a deck of cards.

      I get it I get it!! Bring on Duckworth-Lewis!

      Thanks, Will Hill.

      Shall do a WDKF global holiday and poker will be part of it. My poker face will be awesome.

      To wllmhll – your explanation is ace. I’ve never understood odds and could never be bothered to figure them out. Thanks!

    Haha Arsenal have already jumped Liverpool in the betting, but at 5/1 I think its still worth a bet.
