Manchester City 6-4 for a record league title romp
The records are tumbling for Manchester City, who extended their winning sequence in the Premier League to 15 matches at Swansea on Wednesday, and bet365 make the Citizens 6-4 to win the title by a record margin of at least 19 points.
Pep Guardiola is no stranger to long winning runs and City, who host Tottenham, are 2-1 with bet365 to win their next five league matches, bettering Guardiola’s 19 straight victories with Bayern Munich in 2014.
They are 11-2 to remain unbeaten in the league this term and 100-1 to win their remaining 21 league games.
City’s record-breakers will be doing their best to frustrate Spurs striker Harry Kane’s bid to eclipse Alan Shearer’s mark of 36 Premier League goals in a calendar year.
Kane needs to score four times in Tottenham’s last three league games of 2017 – away to City and Burnley and at home to Southampton – and he is 9-2 with bet365 to beat Shearer’s record.
Manchester United, who travel to West Brom on Sunday, could be without defender Eric Bailly for the next two or three months as the Ivorian requires surgery on an ankle injury sustained on international duty in November.
Ladbrokes are betting on the next club of United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan with a return to Borussia Dortmund evens and Tottenham 5-4.
Burnley are bidding to continue their superb season with a victory at Brighton and Sean Dyche’s side are 3-1 with Coral and Ladbrokes to win the league without the big six. Leicester are 6-5 market leaders.
