Current champions Linfield FC will be looking to reclaim their title again this season and are current odds on favourites to win priced at 8/11. They’ll be looking at calling upon star man and talisman Andrew Waterworth who was their top goal scorer last season with 13 goals and has already scored 6 goals this year to fire them to the title. They are currently 2nd in the table, 4 points behind the leaders and will be looking to close the gap as soon as possible.

Next up on the list of favourites to win the title this year is Larne who are surprising a lot of teams with how well they have started the season. They are currently top of the table having played 10, won 8 and drawn 2 and are the only unbeaten side in the league. They are currently priced at 9/4 to win the title and this might be a good back because not only are they banging goals in, but they have also only conceded 5 goals in 10 matches which is seriously good going. If we were to have an outside bet, it would be on Larne.

And finally, the Crusaders are the next side on the list of favourites from the bookies to claim the NIFL title come may price at 11/2. Crusaders are serious outsiders compared to Linfield and Larne and wouldn’t say they are clever money to bet on but they will be here or there abouts come the end of the season. Jordan Owens has been the man who has been scoring the goals for them this season but will require a bit more help from his teammates if they are serious about a title challenge.
