Liverpool

Previous Odds: 1.34
New Odds: 1.18
Implied Probability: 84.7%

Another victory for Liverpool keeps them in a great run of form. Further to this, Manchester City's loss to Manchester United at the weekend means that they're now 14 points clear of them at the top of the table. This has led to Liverpool's implied probability to win the league boosted to a whopping 84.7%.

Manchester City

Previous Odds: 5.10
New Odds: 10.5
Implied Probability: 9.5%

The loss to Manchester United has done massive damage to Manchester City's title hopes. Despite the instinct to think Leicester are 2nd favourites, it's actually still City due to their overall strength and expected points per game return. Nevertheless, it will be a very difficult ask to overthrow Liverpool from this position.

Leicester

Previous Odds: 19.5
New Odds: 16.5
Implied Probability: 6.1%

Leicester are playing well and have now put 8 wins on the bounce together. It's impressive and their odds have come in somewhat after Manchester City dropped more points. However, they're still only 6.1% likely to win the Premier League this season. The reason for this is that they have a lower expected points return on all of their remaining fixtures than both Liverpool and Manchester City and would still have to close the big gap to Liverpool.

Chelsea

Previous Odds: 170.0
New Odds: 260.0
Implied Probability: 0.4%

This is likely to be the last time Chelsea are included in this list. After a promising start, they've struggled in recent weeks and are now just 0.4% likely to win the league this season. It's all about finishing in the top 4 for Lampard now.

Good probability study. I also feel Liverpool has the best chance, the rest the in the table are always unpredictable.

Manchester United and wolves could be there too

United and Wolves to win the title? No chance. 0.1% chance to be specific.
