Bookies Already Paying Out On Liverpool To Win Premier League This Season
Bookmakers are already paying out on Liverpool to win this season's Premier League, despite the fact it's only November.
Leading bookie Betway announced they will pay out punters who backed the Reds to win the title at 9/4 before the season started.
Jurgen Klopp's side are have won 12 and drawn one of their 13 games so far this season and are eight points clear of Leicester at the top of the Premier League.
And their imperious form has led Betway to thinking the title race is a done deal, and lining the pockets of customers who backed the Reds.
Betway's Alan Alger said: "Liverpool started the season as 9/4 second favourites to win this year's title but have looked unstoppable since the opening game.
"It's hard to see them dropping points many times this season, with yesterday's win extending their incredible form.
"We know there is risk involved, but this Liverpool team is doing all the right things and winning games in the style of champions. We believe the club has one hand on the trophy already, so Betway punters that backed Klopp's side can collect today"
Liverpool held a 10-point lead at one stage last season but ended up finishing second behind Manchester City by one point.
But Pep Guardiola's champions have been far from the standard they set over the past two campaigns and are nine points behind Liverpool.
They face a manic December which could include nine fixtures, including the Merseyside derby and a trip to the Club World Cup.
But should Klopp's men make it through the busy festive period unscathed, they will fancy their chances of bringing a first league title back to Anfield for 30 years.
