On the eve of the EPL season, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has revealed that Arsenal are who Australian punters have tipped to win the title, despite them being third favourites at $4.50.
Almost 35% of total money placed has been put down on the Londoners with Champions Chelsea ($2.50 favourites) attracting 25%.
Manchester United ($5.50) have resurrected with 20% of punters money – arch rivals Man City ($3.75) struggling with just 7%.
Big spenders Liverpool are at wild odds of $23 to finally end their title drought and have attracted only 13% of punter love.
One Aussie wacky wager of $70 dollars has been placed on Bournemouth at odds of $501 – meaning a potential return of $35,000!
“Aussie punters love the EPL and have come out all guns blazing to back Arsenal but the special one Jose Mourinho might have a thing or two to say about where this title ends up,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
