What looked like it was to be a season-defining upset at the hands of Bournemouth flipped into a comeback for the ages with the swing of Reiss Nelson's leg, and with a simple 3-0 win against Fulham following it, Arsenal have control of the league table and the EPL odds board.
A final international break looms, as well as the second fixture between Arsenal and City, but as it stands, the Gunners are inching closer toward the summit.
Let's take a look at Premier League odds, as Arsenal take another step toward the English crown.

Favorite to win the Premier League
Nearly 100 minutes spanned between Bournemouth's opener and Nelson's winner at the Emirates over the weekend, but the only number that matters to Arsenal is the three points they took.
With a 3-0 win against Fulham following it, Arsenal remain in total control.
Manchester City (+125)
For a while, it looked like City were going to drop more points as they battled at Selhurst Park, but ultimately an Erling Haaland penalty gave them three points. With 11 games left for both Arsenal and City, the leaders hold a five-point advantage.

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.
