Manchester City’s dramatic, midweek collapse against Real Madrid at the Bernabéu knocked them out of Champions League contention. It may have also put City’s domestic chances in jeopardy as well.
Bettors with a taste for high-risk, high-reward opportunities can consider a wager on Manchester City ceding the domestic title to Liverpool. The English Premier League odds and futures still paint the sky Manchester blue, but this weekend presents them with a tricky task.
In addition to wagering on Liverpool to win the league, bettors can also roll the dice on a major Matchweek 36 upset. Of the scenarios in which Newcastle United manages a result at the Etihad, Saturday’s is most ripe. City will need to dust themselves off after what can only be described as a painful, devastating loss on Wednesday.
Let’s take a look at the latest 2022 EPL odds and where the betting value lies.

Bettors tempted by the promise of plus-money profits will want to consider more than numbers when Manchester City host Newcastle. Quantitative measures and analytical metrics will surely favor the Sky Blues. However, Saturday’s fixture will ask them to demonstrate high-level resilience.
Manchester City Stumbling In EPL Title Race
Losing a two-goal aggregate lead in the waning moments of Wednesday’s match has to be demoralizing for the club. City had a boot firmly planted in Paris, only to see it ripped from its grasp in swift and severe fashion.
Former Premier League midfielders Robbie Earle and Robbie Mustoe asked rhetorically if City will suffer from a hangover, and described Saturday’s matchup as a “character test” and even mentioned the responsibility the City supporters have to provide their side with a boost.
It only takes a peek at the odds to appreciate the chasm between Manchester City and Newcastle, and thus, bettors shouldn’t go overboard gambling on an unlikely event to occur. Given the dramatic nature of City’s Champions League exit, however, it could be worth taking a chance. Remember though, a little can go a long way with odds so long.
Liverpool will host a dangerous opponent when Tottenham Hotspur pay a visit to Anfield. However, given their form — they’ve won six on the spin across all competitions — it appears as if it will require a Herculean effort to steal points from the Reds.
