The markets have reacted after Leicester and Tottenham both won their Premier League games this weekend, while Arsenal and Chelsea were both knocked out of the FA Cup. Mike Norman has the updated odds...
"Leicester can be backed at 1.834/5 in the Premier League Winner market with Spurs trading at 3.613/5. Arsenal are next in the market and can be backed at 8.88/1 with Man City now trading at the biggest price they've been all season, 19.018/1."
Leicester are trading at odds-on to win the Premier League title for the first time this season after beating Newcastle 1-0 at the King Power Stadium on Monday night.
Shinji Okazaki's spectacular first-half strike proved to be the only goal of a pretty dull affair, but performances matter little at this stage of the season and the victory takes Claudio Ranieri's men five points clear with just eight games remaining.
Tottenham had reduced the gap at the top to two points with a 2-0 win at Aston Villa on Sunday, but given that Arsenal - who were in FA Cup action - and Manchester City are now 11 and 12 points behind the Foxes respectively, Mauricio Pochettino's men look like being the only other team in with a chance of winning the title.
Leicester can be backed at 1.834/5 in the Premier League Winner market with Spurs trading at 3.613/5. Arsenal are next in the market and can be backed at 8.88/1 with Man City now trading at the biggest price they've been all season, 19.018/1.
Everton are the new favourites to win this season's FA Cup - available to back at 3.55/2 - after Roberto Martinez's men beat Chelsea 2-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday evening.
But in what is shaping up to be a wide open competition at this stage, the other four remaining teams - Man Utd, Crystal Palace, West Ham, and Watford - are all trading between 5.39/2 and 5.69/2.
The Hornets produced the shock of the quarter-finals by beating Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, and their reward is a Wembley semi-final clash with London rivals Crystal Palace.
The winners of the West Ham v Man Utd replay will face Everton in the other Wembley semi-final, scheduled for mid-April.
