Arsenal are cooking this year. Twelve weeks into the Premier League season, the Gunners have opened up a four-point gap on second-place Liverpool, and after a comfortable 2-0 win against French side Marseille today, Arsenal are one point away from a berth to the Champions League knockout stage.
But betting odds don't reflect that. Arsenal have a six-point lead on Manchester City, but the Citizens are 8/5 to lift the Premier League trophy at season's end over 3/1 Arsenal. Champions League odds have Arsenal dark horses at best to win the tournament. They face longer odds than FC Bayern, Barcelona, Real Madrid, City, Paris Saint-Germain, and Chelsea.
