2012/2013 English Premier League Preview & Odds courtesy of Betfair

betfairGun striker Sergio Aguero will spearhead Manchester City to a narrow Premier League title defense ahead of cross-town rivals Manchester United.

That’s the prediction of Betfair punters from around the world, who’ve already wagered more than $2m on the Premier League winner, 41% of which has been on Manchester City to defend their title.

The Blues are the current $2.36 favourites retain the title, heading Manchester United at $3.25, who have firmed from $3.50 since the news of Robin Van Persie’s defection from Arsenal to Old Trafford.

Former England international and Betfair Football Informer Lee Dixon says, while he’s sticking with Manchester City, the gap in the market to Manchester United shouldn’t be so pronounced.

I always felt it would be a bigger deal for United to land Van Persie than it would be for City because of the array of firepower that is already at Eastlands.

If I was pricing up the Premier League market I’d have the Manchester clubs neck and neck. For now, I’m backing my Blues to make it Premier League title number two, but I’ll be intrigued to see how RVP fares at Old Trafford and, if he hits the ground running, then it might be time to get on United.”

Manchester City’s dynamic striker Sergio Aguero is being tipped to head the EPL goal scorers list as the $8.60 favourite ahead of Chelsea’s Fernando Torres at $9.20.

Red Devil’s supporters will be buoyed by the news that Van Persie $9.60 and Wayne Rooney $10 occupy the next two lines in the market, reflecting the extraordinary strike power available to Sir Alex Ferguson.

They will be talking about Sergio Aguero’s last gasp winner for decades to come at Eastlands. I’m going to back him to carry that impetus in to the new season and finish as the Premier League’s top goal scorer,” Dixon says.

Away from the high-flyers, a battle rages at the bottom of the ladder with Betfair players fancying West Ham $2.24 to outperform their fellow newly-promoted rivals Southampton $3.40 and Reading $3.60 in betting on the ‘top promoted team.’

Punters also believe Reading $5.80 are the team most likely to finish ‘rock bottom’ of the ladder this season.
