Premier League Title Race

The end of 2013 is looms closer, and historically it has always been a good time for sports betting punters to have a good feel as to which English Premier League team has one hand on the trophy.

However, this season has not been that easy with two points separating the top three teams, Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea. For the all football enthusiasts the title race could not be any more exciting, with Everton and Liverpool also in with an outside chance of making their mark on the title race.

Arsene Wenger and Arsenal have finally come good, after being so disappointing in the past years and are presently at the top of the table with 42 points. However, Manchester City are a close second with only one point adrift, and Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea are on 40 points even without playing at their very best. Liverpool are right up there as well, mainly down to Luis Suarez, together with Everton who have a real chance of finishing in the the top four. Inconsistent Manchester United and David Moyes have been trying to catch up in sixth place, but it looks a tall order for the Red Devils with them now having to fight to just finish in the Top Four.

So who is win the title this year? The bookmakers have Manchester City as favourites and after reviewing the clubs in contention, it is hard not to bet on Pellegrini’s team, especially with the ever growing goal difference (currently standing at 33). They have been awesome this season, with Aguero scoring 19 goals so far in the campaign and Negredo not so shabby on 14, and the quality of their squad on the whole all adds up to them being favoured to finish strong as the end of the season and consistency comes into play.

Arsenal are playing well, as they grinded out a tough win away at Newcastle, but looked tired against Chelsea and there is always the fear that Arsene Wenger’s squad is not big enough and does not have the overall quality to see them through to the end. Some credence to this belief is already been seen with Wenger criticising the Premier League fixtures list as excuse for the recent run of four games without a win.

For punters looking for a bit of value, I would recommend Chelsea. The Blues have not been their best, but have managed to still keep up with the pace and with Jose Mourinho at the helm, who knows what the ‘special one’ can conjure up! Paddypower have Chelsea 4/1 to win the Premier League Title Outright and betting each could ensure your money back if they come in second.
