EPL premiership and relegation betting – free tips & best odds

WITH seven games to go, Leicester City’s Premier League pipe dream is starting to look more and more like a reality.

The Foxes maintained their five-point lead over Tottenham Hotspur after last week’s 1-0 result against Crystal Palace – their seventh win in nine games.

They face a testing run home with fixtures against Southampton, West Ham, Manchester United and Everton to come, but Claudio Ranieri’s men have shown no signs yet of buckling under this most unexpected pressure.

Now the Italian coach and the bulk of his squad can take a welcome breather over Easter as Europe’s major divisions break for the international rounds.

With no top-flight domestic action to bet on this weekend, let’s take a look at how the 2015-16 Premier League futures markets are shaping up.

2015-16 Premier League outright winner

Leicester were bottom of the table this time last year, but now they are $1.60 title favourites in the Premier League outright betting at WilliamHill.com.

Second-placed Tottenham ($3.60) are next in line, while their arch-rivals Arsenal ($6.50) remain an outside chance after mauling Everton at Goodison Park last week.

Sunday’s derby defeat was the last straw for Manchester City, who have blown out to $101 odds and are now 15 points off the pace.

Leicester City – $1.60

Tottenham Hotspur – $3.60

Arsenal – $6.50

Manchester City – $101

Manchester United – $126

West Ham United – $401

To finish top four

Leicester, Spurs and Arsenal appear to have Champions League qualification all sewn up, which leaves Man City ($1.60), Man United ($2.80) and West Ham ($6) to duke it out for the remaining top-four slot.

Liverpool’s remote chances of squeezing in took a battering with last week’s disastrous collapse at Southampton, who are paying $41 after leapfrogging the Reds into seventh place.

But online bookmaker CrownBet still prefers Jurgen Klopp’s men at $13, owing to their two games in hand.

Leicester City – $1

Tottenham Hotspur – $1.01

Arsenal – $1.04

Manchester City – $1.60

Manchester United – $2.80

West Ham United – $6

Liverpool – $13

Southampton – $41

Chelsea – $67

Everton – $501

EPL relegation betting

With Remy Garde’s mob sitting dead last on a miserable tally of 16 points from 31 games, the bookies have given up altogether on Aston Villa’s prospects of escaping the drop.

Newcastle ($1.40) and Sunderland ($1.44) are the most likely the join them in the Championship next season, while Norwich ($1.72) are the other chief candidates for relegation.

Crystal Palace have slipped into the mix at $13 after losing nine of their last 11 games, although they remain five points clear of 17th with a game in hand.

Newcastle United – $1.40

Sunderland – $1.44

Norwich City – $1.72

Crystal Palace – $13

Swansea City – $34

Watford – $201

Bournemouth – $501

West Bromwich Albion – $501

Premier League top goalscorer odds

With five goals in his last three league appearances, Harry Kane has rocketed into outright favouritism in the EPL top goalscorer betting.

The Spurs striker is now paying only $1.53 at Sportsbet after taking his tally to 21 goals for the season, which puts him two ahead of Leicester’s Jamie Vardy and three clear of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku (both $6).

Man City talisman Sergio Aguero is next at $10, while Riyad Mahrez ($41) is the only other man under $100.

Harry Kane (Tottenham) – $1.53

Jamie Vardy (Leicester) – $6

Romelu Lukaku (Everton) – $6

Sergio Aguero (Man City) – $10

Riyad Mahrez (Leicester) – $41

Jermain Defoe (Sunderland) – $101

Odion Ighalo (Watford) – $101

Diego Costa (Chelsea) – $101

Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) – $101
