Manchester City continue to be the team to beat in the English Premier League after their 1-0 win against Tottenham on Tuesday morning.
City has shortened to $1.33 in the outright market to win consecutive Premier League title, despite them being tied in the standings with Liverpool on 26 points.
It was Riyad Mahrez who was the lone goal scorer against the Spurs, striking in the sixth minute.
The visitors could have added to their tally, but missed a number of guilt-edged opportunities, with a David Silva miss from nearly point blank range the most obvious.
Liverpool kept in touch with the competition favourites thanks to a 4-1 win against relegation favourites Cardiff on Sunday.
The Reds are $4.50 to win their first Premier League title and brushed aside one of the league’s poorer sides on matchday 10.
A goal in the 10th minute to Mo Salah was followd up by a treble of second half goals, with two to Sadio Mane and one to Xheridan Shaqiri.
The Bluebirds got on the scoresheet in the 77th minute when Callum Paterson scored, but manager Neil Warnock’s prediction that it would be near impossible for his side to win this fixture proved to be true.
Cardiff is priced at $1.45 to be relegated this season. Liverpool’s next match is a trip to the Emirates to play Arsenal, who dropped their first points in some time with a 2-2 draw away to Crystal Palace.
The Gunners battled back from 1-0 down at half time to take a 2-1 advantage in the second half.
Goals to Granit Xhaka and Patrick Aubameyang had the visitors in control, but they will lament conceding two sloppy penalties that were converted from the spot by Luka Milivojevic.
The second spot kick came in the 83rd minute, ensuring the match ended in a draw. Arsenal is $101 to win the Premier League this season and are four points adrift of Manchester City and Liverpool.
Chelsea brushed aside Burnley 4-0 at Turf Moor to maintain its undefeated start to the season.
It was a clinical performance from the Blues who never gave the Clarets a sniff.
Goals to Alvaro Morata, Ross Barkley, Willian and Ruben Loftus-Cheek sealed their most convincing result of the season.
Chelsea is $17 to win the Premier League. Burnley are in 15th spot on the table and have stabilised after a poor start to the season. They are $2.10 to be relegated.
The pressure is well and truly on Fulham as the Cottagers lost yet another game, this time to Bournemouth by a 3-0 score at home.
It was another dismal showing for Fulham, who went down early thanks to a Callum Wilson penalty and never looked in the contest. Late goals to David Brooks and Wilson ensured Fulham lost its fourth league game in a row. They are now in the relegation zone in 18th and priced at $2.10 to drop.
Bournemouth moved up to 20 points on the season and sixth in the standings with six wins from 10 starts this season.
Watford backed up their surprising 2-0 win at Wolves last weekend with a 3-0 win against the league’s bottom-placed side Huddersfield on Sunday.
Roberto Pereyra, Gerard Deulofeu and Isaac Success all found the score sheet for the Hornets, who are in seventh spot on the table.
The Terriers are now relegation favourites at $1.36 and have taken just three points from a possible 30 this season.
Struggling teams Southampton and Newcastle shared the points in their match at St Mary’s after neither could find the back of the net.
Newcastle is 19th on the league table and without a win this season. Southampton is not faring much better with just one win from 10 starts. They are in 16th spot. Newcastle is $2.75 to be relegated, while Southampton is priced at $6.50.
Manchester United looks to have found league form after a rocky start to the season with a 2-1 win against Everton at Old Trafford.
Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial scored the goals for the hosts who now have 17 points and are in eighth spot on the table.
Brighton earned an odds-against win at home when they defeated Wolves 1-0 on Sunday.
Glenn Murray’s goal early in the second half proved to be the difference maker, as the Seagulls snared their fourth win of the season.
Leicester City’s 1-1 draw with West Ham on Sunday morning was marred by a devastating helicopter crash just outside the King Power Stadium.
Much-loved Foxes owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was one of five people to perish in the crash, with the club left reeling following the news.
Leicester’s EFL Cup match against Southampton has been postponed, with their next game at Cardiff on Sunday.
