Man City and Liverpool ahead of the chasing pack in Premier League title race, say odds

Oddsmakers have pegged the Premier League title quest as a two-horse race, with defending-champions Manchester City and Liverpool breaking away from the pack.

Man City, who have won four of their last five EPL titles, are the favorites to win it again, listed in the Kaiser Sportsbook at -165. Liverpool, last season's runners-up, are +200.

According to the oddsmakers, the difference between the two top clubs and the rest of the table is significant. Man City and Liverpool are the only two teams with single digit odds. Tottenham, at +1,400, and Chelsea, at +1,600, are next, but the odds have a way to go. Although Tottenham have made the most and most bets to win the league title in the Kaiser Sportsbook, beating Man City will be a long task.

Man City added elite striker Erling Haaland in the off-season, bolstering Pep Guardiola's already powerful roster, who posted 93 points for last year's title. This was the sixth highest score in the history of the league. Liverpool, however, were just one point behind and won over Man City in the FA Community Shield last week.

Arsenal starting the season on Friday against Crystal Palace are +2,800 and Manchester United +3,500. According to the sports betting archive, Man United's preseason title odds are the longest in more than a decade.

Bournemouth and Fulham, at 1,500-1 and 1,000-1 respectively, are the longest shots on the board in the Kaiser Sportsbook.
