Manchester City new favourites for the Premier League after 6-1 rout
Has Manchester City’s stunning 6-1 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford shifted the balance of power firmly to the blue half of the city? Online bookmaker Betclic.com thinks so as Roberto Mancini’s side have become the 2.20 favourite to win the Premier League.
After yesterday’s win City extended their lead at the top of the league to five points and it has forced the bookmakers to reconsider the outright odds.
“[Roberto] Mancini’s side started the season 4,50 times the money for the title behind Chelsea and United, who were the 2.50 favourites. But after their best nine-game start to a season since the 1897-98 Division 2 season, City have leapfrogged United as favourites for the Premier League title,” said Betclic PR manager Dan Vikman.
After yesterday’s thrashing of Manchester United City now find themselves as 2.20 times the money with Betclic to lift the title, while Sir Alex Ferguson’s men have slipped to 2.75.
Chelsea, who lost 1-0 to QPR at the weekend, have also slipped from 3.50 in odds at the start of the season to 4.50 on Betclic.com.
Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal are all 50.00 times the money to win the Premier League.
Manchester United will have an instant chance to bounce back from their humiliating defeat when they travel to Aldershot in the Carling Cup Fourth Round. The League Two side are a massive nine times the money at Betclic.com to heap further misery on Ferguson’s side.
Manchester City are also back in action when they take on Wolves.
