Premier League betting, odds: Manchester City is now the prohibitive title favorite

Manchester City’s victory over Arsenal on Wednesday changed the chances of a title in the English Premier League.

A week ago Arsenal had -175 to win the league but now +160 to take home the title after losing 3-1 to City on Wednesday. And thanks to this victory, City went from +150 to winning the league to -200. If you are betting that Manchester City will win the title last week, you have a very good estimate of your chances.

City are now ahead of Arsenal in the standings on goal difference. Both Man City and Arsenal have 51 points each and City are 10 goals better than Arsenal. But perhaps most importantly, Arsenal have a game with Man City. Arsenal have played 22 matches and Manchester City have played 23.

Arsenal also have the advantage of being solely focused on the Premier League. The Gunners are not in the Champions League and don’t have to worry about roster rotation between the two competitions. In the meantime, City have arguably the strongest squad in Europe and could also be affected by allegations of financial impropriety against the team in its Premier League dominance over the past decade.

The two teams also have one more game against each other. On April 26, City will host Arsenal and both teams have just one game left against other teams currently in the top five. Both teams will play Newcastle later this season and they also each have a game against Liverpool as the Reds hope to get to the Champions League places late.

Bournemouth’s chances of avoiding relegation have improved slightly, while Southampton’s have worsened. It was -450 for Bournemouth last week to be relegated and now it’s -400. Southampton have the same chance of relegation after the sacking of Nathan Jones over the weekend. A week ago, the Saints had -275 to be relegated.

Everton are at +110 to drop after losing to Liverpool on Monday, while Leeds remain at +200.
