Manchester City (-135 )
Currently on top of the table, the Citizens hold a two-point edge over Arsenal and Manchester United, who are tied for second. The Citizens just wrapped up an emphatic 6-1 win over Newcastle at the Etihad, with star striker Sergio Aguero scoring five goals. They're the top favorites on the board right now.
The Gunners seem to finding their stride and they're right in the thick of things. Alexis Sanchez is firing on all cylinders, and just helped tear Arsenal tear Man United apart 3-0, while the return of a healthy Theo Walcott has injected a nice change of pace up front. Don't count out Arsene Wenger's crew.
Manchester United (+875)
As mentioned above, the Red Devils got completely outplayed at the Emirates in what was their first loss in a few weeks. The good news? Wayne Rooney is back in the mix and him being back is obviously a big boost to the team's chances of competing for first.
Despite a truly awful start to their season -- they are currently all the way down in 16th place in the table -- the Blues are still being given a figher's chance to win the league title for the second straight year. You have to figure Jose Mourinho's team will get their act together sooner rather than later, but have they already dug themselves too deep of a hole?
After another disappointing start, the Reds decided to get rid of Brendan Rodgers, and they just announced that former Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp will become the new man in charge. We'll see soon enough what kind of impact he'll have at Anfield.
