Manchester City was originally picked as the favorite, and once Lionel Messi was linked, the Cityzens’ odds went all the way up close to -200.
But a slow start to the season, and a quick start for defending champions Liverpool meant that the Reds took over as favorites.
But then, a season ending injury to Ballon d’Or runner up Virgil van Dijk swung the pendulum back towards City, who are now the favorites once again.
Saturday, after a relatively tough win midweek in the UEFA Champions League, the Cityzens travel to London to take on a West Ham United team even on points with City (with one more game played).
