Chelsea out to 15/8 to win title after point at White Hart Lane
Ahead of Monday night’s mouth-watering clash between Manchester United and Arsenal, Chelsea have been lengthened to 15/8 to win the Premier League after starting the weekend 7/4.
With Arsenal and Manchester City currently joint top of the Premier League on 32 points, the two market leaders in the Barclays Premier League betting are being lengthened in the betting.
Chelsea were 4/7 at one point to win the league and while Man Utd have been shortened to 13/8 after being as long as 10/3 to win the Premier League, it’s a sign of just how tight the league table looks with no team taking control of the market.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side have now taken just six points out of a possible 21 in their last seven league games, and the confidence that was once behind Chelsea winning the league has disappeared.
“We tried to do everything to win,” said Ancelotti. “We didn’t, but we are going the right way and the difficult moment is behind us.”
Chelse are level on points with Man Utd, but Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have two games in hand on the Premier League champions.
The Christmas period will provide plenty of clues as to where the Premier League may be heading with Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd all facing each other, and Monday night’s game between Man Utd and Arsenal will confirm just how strong Arsenal’s challenge is.
At 11/4 to beat Man Utd, Arsenal have it all to do at Old Trafford but should they come away with victory, they will confirm their status as Premier League challengers.
The unbeaten Man Utd are 1/1 to beat Arsenal and should they do so, they will move top of the Premier League and their 13/8 title odds will be cut ahead of their trip to Chelsea on Sunday.
