There were shocks, there were big score lines and there were, presumably, plenty of dismayed punters – but how have the opening weekend fixtures affected the Premier League ante-post betting?
Liverpool’s heavy defeat arguably raised the most eyebrows on Saturday and has seen the Reds drift out on the title and top four markets to 40/1 and 11/4 respectively.
Newcastle’s defeat of Spurs has allayed fears last season was just a blip and the Magpies are in from 13s to 9/1 for a top four berth.
At the other end of the table, Southampton are non-movers in the relegation market despite their impressive performance against champions Manchester City.
However, the same cannot be said for Norwich, who are into Evens with some bookmakers after their disastrous 5-0 humbling at the hands of Fulham.
West Ham’s victory over Aston Villa has seen Sam Allardyce replaced by Saints boss Nigel Adkins (pictured) as the bookies favourite to be out of a job first at 9/2 with Paddy Power, which is surprising considering Southampton’s performance against City.
QPR manager Mark Hughes has also leapfrogged Allardyce after his side lost 5-0 to Swansea.
With Manchester United yet to play there is little movement at the business end of the title market.Claim Your Free £20 Bonus Now
