City Cut To Win The Premier League, Bournemouth Cut For The Drop

William Hill have cut the odds of Bournemouth being relegated from 8/1 to 13/2 after their defeat to Manchester City while Manchester City are 8/1 second favourites to win the Premier League behind Chelsea who have been eased from 1/8 to 1/7 after their lead was cut to eight points at the top of the table.


“A few weeks ago, Bournemouth looked as though they were going to finish in the middle of the table while City’s title aspirations were dead and buried, however now, The Cherries are now just six points from the drop zone and City are the main challengers to Chelsea at the top,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
