bookies paying out on chelsea winning title.

How ridiculous! There's plenty of time for an upset yet.

The Premier League title has already been won - according to some bookies who are already paying out on Chelsea. Reports in national newspapers claim Paddy Power is shelling out up to £1m eight months before the end of the football season.With 31 games still left to play, it seems Chelsea have already retained the title.

Two years ago the Irish bookies burned their fingers by coughing up on Arsenal only to pay out again when Manchester United pipped them.

But the head of communications at Paddy Power said: "We know and the punters know the Premiership race is already over."

You have to wonder how much they actually pay out versus the value of the publicity they receive. Who ever heard of "Paddy Power" before they started doing this?
