The Premier League is just under a month away from kicking off its season and bettors are getting their action in on the futures market.
However, both teams that have competed for the most recent titles in the English top flight aren’t getting much love from the public.
Manchester City has attracted just 5.2% of the betting tickets and 3.2% of the handle, though its odds have moved from -150 to -160 at BetMGM.
Liverpool has been seeing a bit more action from bettors, receiving 8.6% of the tickets and 11.4% of the handle. Unlike the Cityzens, the Reds’ odds have shifted from +200 to +225 in the latest numbers.
The one team the public is actually in love with is Tottenham.
Spurs have amassed a staggering 32.8% of the tickets and 51.6% of the handle, plus its odds have halved in the process, falling from +2800 to +1400.
Tottenham has never won an EPL title since the league’s major reformation, but it has recorded a few league titles in decades past.

Spurs has also been active in the transfer market, acquiring Ivan Perisic, Clement Lenglet, Richarlison, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma this summer.
Arsenal and Chelsea are also popular among bettors. The two London-based clubs account for 27% of the betting tickets and 17.4% of the handle.
Despite the heavy money, Arsenal’s odds have drifted from +4000 to +5000 and Chelsea’s odds have moved +1200 to +1600 odds.
Manchester United has moved from +2000 to +2800, while getting 6.9% of the tickets and 9.7% of the handle.
The biggest longshot getting respect from bettors is Saudi-backed Newcastle United. It has received 4.0% of the betting tickets and 1.5% of the handle at a +6600 price.
Premier League play will kick off on Friday, Aug. 5, when Arsenal travels south to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
