Top Premier League Betting Trends 

Man City occupies first place in the Premier League table, but Liverpool and Arsenal trail the defending champion by a solitary point. In fact, the top five teams are separated by just three points. At the opposite end of the standings, the three promoted teams are stuck in the relegation zone.
