Last year, about half the forum was up in arms a few weeks from the end of the season–convinced our poor form was going to cause us to miss a top 4 spot. But the people with real skin in the game, bettors, saw our relatively easy schedule made us strong favorites for a top 4 spot and had us at short odds. As usual, they were right. Of course, Chelsea’s CL triumph screwed us out of our just desserts, but the bettors were right nonetheless. So I thought it would be interesting to have a thread where we keep track of top 4 odds for the remainder of the season. Right now, the longest odds you can get on teams finishing in the top 4 are: Chelsea 1/4 Spurs 1 Arsenal 6/5 Everton 7 Liverpool 7 Basically, bettors are saying Chelsea is a near lock, Everton and Liverpool are long shots, and we and Arsenal will be battling it out for the remaining spot.
