Sky news update: Manchester City are now favourites again to win the Premier League after the new Sky Bet odds put them at 2/1 to win the championship.
Manchester City were leading the betting the same time last week, however their week loss to Chelsea meant they lost their position as favourites to win the league, and allowed Chelsea to go top. Though this Saturday's 7-0 win over Norwich has launched them straight back to top giving them 2/1 odds on winning the league, and downgraded Chelsea who now have 11/4 odds to win.
Arsenal are sitting five points clear at the top of the table after beating Liverpool 2-0 at their home ground The Emirates. Despite extending their lead, Sky Bet have lowered their odds to 7/2 in regards to them staying top of the table. Liverpool’s odds have also lowered to 9/1 in regards to them becoming victorious in the league.
Manchester United will have to quickly close an 8 point gap to draw level with Arsenal at the top of the league. With the way Arsenal are playing this seems unlikely to happen and therefore Sky Bet has lowered Manchester United’s odds as well to 8/1. At the other end of the spectrum Crystal Palace is 1/20 to be relegated this season. Sunderland joins them after a 1-0 defeat to Hull after having to men sent off.
This leaves Sunderland odds on at 4/7 to be relegated. Norwich was crushed in their weekend performance 7-0 to Manchester City. While this result boosted City in the betting, it lowers Norwich who is now 9/4 to be relegated. Fulham and Hull also join the growing collection of teams who could be relegated with odds of 11/4.
The Fulham manager Martin Jol remains Sky Bet’s favourite to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked, his odds rising to 7/4. Chris Hughton the current Norwich manager is also 6/1 to be the next premier league manager to lose his job. In the Sky Bet Championship Queens Park Rangers, QPR, currently sit third in the league. However following a 2-1 win over Derby on Saturday, their odds have risen to 6/5 putting them top in the betting to win the league.
Burnley, who are winning the league, have odds of 15/2 and Leicester who are second have odds of 7/2. In the Sky Bet League 1 Wolves are odds on at 4/5 to win the league. And in the Sky Bet League 2 Fleetwood are leading the betting at 5/2.
