Liverpool Currently 1.8 To Win EPL

Published on April 13th, 2014 3:27 pm EST

Liverpool topped Manchester City 3-2 earlier today in what was one of the most thrilling games of the season.

The game had tremendous significance in terms of the English Premier League standings - let's take a look at the top of the table:

Liverpool - 24-5-5, 77 points
Chelsea - 23-6-5, 75 points
Man City - 22-4-6, 70 points
Everton - 19-9-5, 66 points
Arsenal - 19-7-7, 64 points

Man City still has two games in hand on both Liverpool and Chelsea, which is why today's game between Liverpool and Man City was so important. If Man City had won they would have been just 1 point back of Liverpool with two games in hand. Instead, they are now 7 points back with two games in hand, which means that they can't catch Liverpool with their two games in hand.

Let's look at the remaining schedules for Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City:

Liverpool

vs:

Norwich City
Chelsea
Crystal Palace
Newcastle

Man City

vs:

Sunderland
West Brom
Crystal Palace
Everton
Aston Villa
West Ham

Chelsea

vs:

Sunderland
Liverpool
Norwich City
Cardiff City

In reality, Liverpool should beat Norwich City, Crystal Palace and Newcastle. If that happens, Man City would need to win all six of their remaining games AND hope that Chelsea can keep Liverpool to just one point when the two teams play on April 27th. If that happens, Man City would win the EPL by one point.

If Man City wins all six of their remaining games, they will pass Chelsea no matter what. Liverpool, on the other hand, has their fate in their own hands and can seal the league title if they win their remaining four games.

Here are the odds to win the EPL:

Liverpool, 1.8
Man City, 3.2
Chelsea, 5.5

At the beginning of the year, Man City, Chelsea and Man Utd were expected to be in a three team race for the league title but Man Utd ended up falling off dramatically.
