Chelsea in the Thick of Title Race Betting

Chelsea are now as short as 5/1 to retain their Premier League crown with some bookmakers.

Chelsea's 2-0 win at home to Manchester City on Sunday saw their odds on retaining the Premier League title shorten once again.

Late goals by David Luiz and Ramires saw the Blues maintain the nine-point gap between themselves and leaders Manchester United and close to within four points of second place Arsenal.

With a game in hand over United and the two still to meet at Old Trafford in early May manager Carlo Ancelotti has refused to give up on his side's chances of winning the title.

Chelsea are now as short as 5/1 to retain their Premier League crown with some bookmakers.

Man Utd also left it late before taking all three points from their home game against Bolton as a blunder by Jussi Jaaskelainen allowed Dimitar Berbatov to bundle the ball over the line and claim the three points. Sir Alex Ferguson's side can now be backed at odds of 8/15 to win the Premier League title.

It was also a late surge form Arsenal that saw them keep their title chances in their own hands. However, they could only take a point from their trip to the Hawthorns, after going 2-0 down, and they are now out to 3/1 in the Premier League winner betting.

At the other end of the table things continue to get tighter and tighter. Six points separate the bottom 10 clubs and every team in the bottom half of the table is in genuine danger of being relegated.

Wigan remain rooted to the bottom of the table, despite a late Maynor Figueroa strike earning them all three points at home to Birmingham. The Latics are quoted at odds of 2/5 to be relegated while the Birmingham betting has them at 7/4 to be combining Championship football with a Europa League campaign next season.

Blackpool threw away a two-goal lead for the third time this season away to Blackburn. Ian Holloway's mean are now priced at 6/5 to be relegated while Rovers are 2/1.

Wolves picked up a rare three points on the road and are now 7/4 to go down while West Ham's point at White Hart Lane lifted them out of the bottom three and lengthened their relegation betting odds to 13/8.

The Premier League takes a fortnight break now to allow for Euro 2012 qualifiers. When it returns it's full steam ahead for the remaining eight rounds of fixtures.
