It was another dramatic sporting weekend, as Premier League favourites Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea strengthened their status as market leaders. 

It was Jurgen Klopp’s side that started the weekend in Saturday’s early kick off, as 3/10 favorites against Watford, followed by Manchester City – who were the Premier League’s shortest price this weekend and eased to a victory over Burnley. 

Chelsea were faced with more turbulence however, as the European champions rode their luck and managed to overcome Brentford, who forced Edouard Mendy into a plethora of tough saves. 

The 3pm kick-offs however, did produce upsets as 13/5 underdogs Leicester piled misery onto Ole Gunnar Solskjær Manchester United side with a 4-2 victory.  In the West Midlands derby, priced at 3/1 Wolves also came from behind to produce a dramatic win over Aston Villa. 

Manchester United’s defeat to the Foxes saw their odds for the title lengthen significantly to 22/1, as neighbours City moved to 10/11 and remain favourites for the crown. 

The NFL also continued into week six as the LA Rams defeated the New York Giants and continued their positive start to the campaign, whilst the Baltimore Ravens elevated their status as potential Super Bowl picks with a thrashing of the Miami Dolphins.
