Manchester City is having a stellar Premier League season, with just one defeat after more than half the season gone by. City currently top the Premier League table, ahead of Manchester United in second place by 12 points and a goal difference of 18 goals ahead of United. Liverpool and Chelsea are right behind Manchester United with 47 points each and an almost identical goal difference.
Can City Lose The Premier League This Season?
City will have to lose 5 games, not draw, but lose 5 games from the remaining 15 games. Let’s not forget City lost just 1 game and drew 2 games in their first 22 Premier League games this season. So they don’t seem to be dropping points anytime soon.
Even if City do somehow manage to hit terrible form, United, Liverpool and Chelsea will have to win the remainder of all their games. These clubs have been in good form, but it’s hard to see anyone take the Premier League from City now.
How Do Bookmakers Feel About City Winning the PL?
Bookies around the world feel that City has already won the Premier League this season. Even with 15 games to still go in the 2017-2018 season, City is title favorites. Their run of 22 unbeaten games this season has helped them secure the League. The Odds as of January 2018 are:
- Manchester City – 1/25 and 1/100
- Manchester United – 50/1
- Liverpool – 100/1
- Chelsea – 120/1
Note: These teams also have the best odds of a top 4 finish in the Premier League this season, in the same order as above.
City will win the League in May and the margins for any bets placed on Manchester City are really low. It doesn’t make the most sense to make a bet on any of the contenders but we have seen stranger things happen over the course of a season in football. Just one string of a bad run in form may be enough to make the title race interesting.
