We’re through two weeks in the Premier League and it’s already looking like Manchester City will be a tough team to knock off at the top of the table.
The Cityzens have secured six points from their opening two games, and only Arsenal has matched that total. Six teams have amassed four points, but notably, Liverpool is not one of them.
A team that has pushed City year in and year out, Liverpool, opened the season as the No. 1 contender to the reigning champions, but two stalemates have the Reds at 12th in the table.
Most recently, Liverpool wasn’t able to convert as a -500 favorite against Crystal Palace at home, meaning it is now +450 to win the title.
The Reds remain the third-biggest liability at BetMGM, in part because wagers have continued to flow in on them at a longer price. 19.7% of the betting tickets and 23.5% of the handle is on Liverpool in the title market.
Manchester City, which is now -275 favorite for the title, has attracted 7.5% of the tickets and 29.6% of the handle, meaning it is not a big liability due to the short price.
Tottenham remains the biggest liability by some margin for BetMGM as it has amassed 23.6% of the tickets and 22.8% of the handle at a +1600 price.
Spurs opened at +2800, but a win and a clutch draw on the road against Chelsea has allowed the squad to stay hot as the season has gotten underway.
Arsenal, the current co-leaders of the league, are the second-biggest liability in the market. It has generated 15.8% of the betting tickets and 9.1% of the handle.
Originally, the Gunners opened at +4000, but they now are +1800 and shortening by the week.
Manchester United, a club that is more likely to get involved in a relegation battle than challenge for the title, is now +10000 to win the Premier League.
United has tracked just 6.4% of the tickets and 3.3% of the handle.
