Premier League title odds: Manchester City, Arsenal level with Manchester United to keep hope alive
On February 27th the Premier League concluded its 25th round of competition. Arsenal and Manchester City both won comfortably, with Arsenal two points ahead of Manchester City with a game in hand and a slight advantage with only a dozen rounds remaining in the league. However, from the agency’s latest odds on the title, Arsenal and Manchester United are currently 1 to 2 odds, the two teams are neck and neck, Manchester United is 1 to 15 in third place.
In last weekend’s match, Arsenal won 1-0 away to Leicester City. Despite the one-goal win, Arsenal were on the offensive all over the pitch, scoring with sharp counter-attacks on top of excellent defence. Since Mietreta took charge, he has averaged 1.66 goals per game in 120 games, with Saca and Martinelli always stepping up when it matters. The Gunners also wiped out the previous Tianwang Mountain game 1-3 home defeat to Manchester City’s decline, with a wave of away two consecutive wins to prove that the road to the title is not falling behind.
Manchester City won 4-1 at Bournemouth, with striker Haarland’s return to scoring form and Alvarez’s flair in front of goal delighting fans. However, after the big lead, the blue Moon reserve performance is more loose, which also can not help but doubt whether the depth of the team is their advantage in the third line of operation.
Arsenal are top of the table with 57 points, having played one game less, followed by Manchester City with 55 points and Manchester United in third with 49 points, also playing one game less. The latest odds put Arsenal and Manchester City neck and neck at 2-to-1, while Manchester United remain in contention at 15-to-1, having just lifted the Carling Cup with a boost to their morale. Newcastle are in fourth place with 251 losses to 1, with little hope of winning the title.
The Premier League championship has entered a white-hot stage, from the two to the three major trend. March will be a crucial time to see who is left behind, with Arsenal having two matches in the Europa League and Manchester City having not only the Champions League but also the FA Cup. If United want to come from behind, not only to ensure their own victory, but also patiently wait for these two teams to make mistakes.
Odds of winning the Premier League after Round 25:
1. Arsenal 2
2. Manchester City 2
3. Manchester United 15
4. Newcastle 251
5. Spurs 501
6. Liverpool 751
