Odd Odds as Bookies Make Chiang Rai Favourites for 2017 Thai League


Siamsport this week published the latest betting odds on the 2017 Thai League, with one big surprise in store – big-spending Chiang Rai Utd are favourites to take the title, closely followed by the usual suspects Buriram, Muangthong and Bangkok Utd. Port are unfancied, coming in 15th at 450/1. Worth a cheeky 1000BHT in my opinion.


Here is the full list, with thanks to Facebook page Thai League Football for the translation:


1. Chiangrai Utd 5/2
2. Buriram Utd 3/1
3. Muangthong Utd 7/2
4. Bangkok Utd 6/1
5. Bangkok Glass 7/1
6. Chonburi 20/1
7. Ratchaburi 30/1
8. Suphanburi 40/1
9. Sukhothai 70/1
10. BEC Tero 150/1
11. Nakhon Ratchasima 300/1
12. Pattaya Utd 300/1
13. Sisaket 350/1
14. Thai Honda 400/1
15. Thai Port 450/1
16. Siam Navy 500/1
17. Ubon UMT 700/1
18. Osotspa Superpower 1000/1


Dodgy betting patterns, or a fair reflection of Chiang Rai’s close season transfer activity?
