Punters prepare for Premiership after turbulent transfer window

The transfer window has led to some drastic market moves

With the Premier League season commencing this evening at Old Trafford, a turbulent transfer window has left punters predicting much misery for Mourinho’s Manchester United side this season.

The market has moved immensely since the start of the summer, with Manchester United’s odds on winning the Premier League massively lengthening, following their turbulent summer.

They’ve shot from 6/1 to 12/1 following Jose Mourinho’s mini-meltdown on their USA tour, with the odds being halved on neighbours Man City to the title, with the reigning champions now being odds on to retain their title with most UK operators.

Punters have been turned away from the Red Devils as well, with United now the seventh most backed team to win the league with just 4.7% of all bets in the last 24 hours. Startlingly, that’s behind the likes of Everton, who’ve attracted 6.4% of all bets.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek emphasised to TotallyGaming.com: “Jose Mourinho seems to be spiralling and it would take a brave man to back Manchester United to improve on their second place finish. Not many are doing so, and bookies are all too happy to knock their price out to double figures.”

Totally Gaming says: Whilst United’s summer has been anything but ideal, there are very few certainties when it comes to the Premier League. That being said, the one thing that you can count on happening is that the market is sure to endure some ups and downs as the campaign plays out.
