Despite the new Premier League season still feeling quite young, we're already at the break to accommodate the World Cup in Qatar.
Some of the league's storylines have become clear — City's dominance, Arsenal's increasingly hard-to-deny title challenge — while others remain confounding, such as exactly what Liverpool or Chelsea are.
With the league on hold until after Christmas, let's take a look at Premier League odds, as Arsenal remain just above City in the table.

Favorite to win the Premier League
Manchester City (-225)
Despite remaining behind Arsenal throughout the season, and dropping points with more regularity, Man City have remained the title favorite throughout. That remains the case after the final weekend before the World Cup break, as City lost to Brentford but held onto their status as title favorites.
Despite nobody expecting this title challenge to sustain, Arsenal remain top of the league and will be there at Christmas. That they are continuing their strong form while Gabriel Jesus goes through a bit of a drought is incredibly impressive and speaks to the team Mikel Arteta has built.
As Liverpool continue to try and salvage their season, they took care of business before the winter break with a win over Southampton. The break comes at a great time for an injured and lost squad but a large chunk of the squad will now jet off to Qatar with their countries.
As it stands, Liverpool are sixth in the league, seven points back of the Top 4.

Understanding EPL betting odds
EPL futures odds are constantly adjusted throughout the offseason due to player transfers and injuries. Once the season begins, title odds will change as teams win and lose games and as more players get hurt or suspended. Sportsbooks will also adjust EPL odds based on handle and liability to certain teams.
EPL futures odds will usually look like this:
- Manchester United +350
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $350 if Manchester City wins the EPL Championship. If it's close to the end of the competition, or a club has been particularly dominant, you might see them with a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds.
- Liverpool -500
This means that you would need to bet $500 to win just $100 on a Liverpool championship.
