Guardiola's side are 7/4 to win the Premier League in his first season in charge
Even though the odds were not on their side, Chelsea are Premier League table leaders after twelve rounds played. A lot of experts were assured Pep Guardiola's team would be in that spot after having such an impressive start to the new campaign. However, a couple of unexpected draws and the recent loss to Tottenham Hotspur have damaged confidence, and City are in third place at the moment, albeit only one point behind the league leaders. Betting tips experts at BettingTips4you still believe though that backing Man City in the title race is the right choice, particularly now that the odds represent very good value.
The game against Crystal Palace on Saturday was one of City's hardest fought victories without a doubt. The match at Selhurst Park started brightly, but with few clear chances until the 39th minute when Yaya Toure opened the scoring. The Eagles were much more positive in the second half and deservedly equalised through Connor Wickham. However, City secured all three points when man of the match Toure netted his second a couple of minutes before the end. Kevin De Bruyne and Nolito provided the assists for the goals, but Sergio Aguero was unlucky not to continue his amazing scoring series. The Argentine striker has netted 8 goals in 10 appearances so far.
Despite the fact they are behind Liverpool and Chelsea, Pep Guardiola and his team are still the favourites to win the Premier League this year. The odds for the top two teams at the moment are 10/3 and 5/2 respectively, whilst City are 7/4, so this season could be one of the most interesting title races in recent history. The Blues have some very difficult matches In December, including home games against Chelsea and Arsenal and visits to reigning champions Leicester and title rivals Liverpool.
