If Leicester City’s odds-defying, title-winning 2015/16 season taught us anything as football fans, it’s that those silly £1 bets are absolutely worth it and we should put them on more frequently. Definitely.

Alright, so nobody has managed to ‘do a Leicester’ since that incredible feat, but there’s no ruling it out, especially with the way 2020 has gone.

A global shutdown wasn’t enough to stop Liverpool from winning their first league title in 30 years in record fashion, but the effects of the ongoing pandemic have made the start to the 2020/21 season interesting to say the least.

With the table still close after just eight games and the world as unpredictable as it’s ever been, now feels like the perfect time to stir the pot a little more and assess who outside of the ‘big six’ is most likely to win the Premier League.
