Latest Premier League Betting – City Even Money Favourites

Last night seen Manchester City take a giant leap in their pursuit of their second title in 3 years. Sometimes a win means more than just the 3 points you get, and last night’s 3-0 victory at Old Trafford was one of those results.

By winning last night, City not only overcame a tricky match in which 3 points were far from guaranteed, they also sent out a message to Chelsea that they are well up for this fight.

City are now only 3 points behind Chelsea, with 2 games in hand, and a 13 goal better goal difference – all this sees them as favourites in the betting at a best price of Even money with Coral (they are 5/6, 10/11 with most other bookies).

City still have a lot of work to do, and they have to visit the Emirates on Saturday – and despite what anybody says, they can’t take this fixture lightly. Chelsea are away at Crystal Palace on the same day, so it could all change again this weekend. Chelsea are a best price of 12/5 with Skybet (£30.00 Free Bet Available).

Onto Liverpool, and the countries form team are now into a best price of 7/2 with William Hill. They entertain Sunderland at Anfield tonight, where a win will take them back up to second in the table, 1 point behind Chelsea with the same number of matches played.

Liverpool are well regarded as the third team in this – now – 3 horse race, but the form they are currently in, they can beat anybody at the moment. Both City and Chelsea have to visit Anfield this season, but will Liverpool be able to continue this remarkable run throughout the rest of March, all through April, and into May?

That is a big ask, but when you look at it another way it is only another 8 matches, and Liverpool have had no European distractions, so in theory should be the fresher team.

Whatever perspective you look at it from though, the remainder of the season is unlikely to pan out in the way we expect it too. There will probably be plenty more twists and turns in this so far very entertaining and exciting Premier League season.

Chelsea – New Premier League Favourites

The ‘little horse’ in the race to be Premier League champions find themselves as the new favourites after the shock results for Arsenal and Manchester City on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho’s side are now outright favourites at a best price of 5/4 with Coral (who have a £50.00 Free Bet for new customers), and most online bookmakers.

I know that on paper Chelsea had what looked a relatively easy fixture at home to Newcastle, but those are the sort of matches I can see Chelsea potentially struggling in.

Chelsea are tactically great at setting up to get a result in a big match, but when it comes to breaking down a team who are intent on defending and hoping to nick a point, I don’t think they are at their most comfortable.

I believe this is mainly down to Chelsea not having a top notch striker, and is why I kind of see what Mourinho is saying when he talks about building towards next season.

I know there is an element of mind games in there (with regard to this year’s league), but I generally do believe he is building towards next year.

People are now also starting to whisper about the Chelsea treble. For Chelsea to win the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup, you can now get 100/1 with BetVictor (£25.00 Free Bet for new customers).

Onto City and Arsenal, and who seen that result coming at Anfield yesterday? I certainly didn’t, and with a run of games coming up that will define Arsenal’s season, they didn’t need to start off with a thrashing like that.

Liverpool are now 14/1 to win the Premier League with Paddy Power after their thrashing of Arsenal on Saturday.

I don’t think too many people fancied Norwich to get anything out of their match against Manchester City either. The worrying aspect for City fans must be the fact they haven’t scored in two matches now, and with Barcelona on the horizon, it is not a good time to be running out of form. They need Sergio Aguero back as soon as possible.

City are now out to 2nd favourites, they are a best price of 11/8, while Arsenal are now out to 7/1, both with Coral.

The City quadruple odds are now out to a best price of 66/1 with BetVictor.
