Betting.Betfair boldly declared Leicester's 2-2 draw against West Brom on Tuesday night "the Foxes' title-winning moment" and that statement looked remarkably prescient 24 hours later as their three main pursuers all failed to capitalise on their supposed slip.
Tottenham were the team with most to gain, knowing that a seventh Premier League victory in a row would lift them to the top of the table, but instead they suffered their first domestic away defeat since the opening day 1-0 at neighbours West Ham.
That presented Arsenal with a chance to close not only within three points of Leicester but level with Spurs ahead of Saturday's north London derby, yet they too surrendered their opportunity with a shock 2-1 loss to Swansea at the Emirates.
So would Manchester City step up to nudge within seven points of Claudio Ranieri's overachievers with a game in hand? No, they actually had the worst evening of anyone, being crushed 3-0 by the same Liverpool side who they beat on penalties in the Capital One Cup final three days earlier.
As a result, Leicester transformed from 4.6 third favourites to win the Premier League to 2.915/8 frontrunners while chilling with their families, with our assertion that a point against West Brom was no disaster confirmed by them being the sole top-four club to increase their tally in midweek.
Spurs are next in line at 3.39/4 owing to their three-point deficit, Arsenal are out to 5.04/1 with six points to recover and Man City are now 8.615/2 to rally from ten points behind.
For Manuel Pellegrini's men, it is no longer just a case of looking up because midweek triumphs for Manchester United (1-0 against Watford), West Ham, Stoke (1-0 against Newcastle) and Liverpool leave four teams within six points of them.
The Citizens remain trusted for a top-four finish at 1.330/100, with Man United 3.02/1, Liverpool 11.010/1, West Ham 15.5 and Stoke 42.041/1.
At the other end of the table, Newcastle's late reverse at Stoke keeps them in 19th, albeit level on points with Sunderland and Norwich above them, though the Magpies remain odds-against to be relegated at 2.1211/10.
