Manchester City sitting pretty
Manchester City may have surprised many football fans with their dominant performance in the Premier League this past season. Pep Guardiola’s side ended the campaign with a staggering 16-point lead over runners-up Manchester United.
One example of such dominance came at the end of March with a rousing 3-1 victory over Everton in which Manchester City looked as good as they had all season. Their particularly powerful showing at Goodison Park that day had many fans and experts alike whispering the word champion on Manchester City’s coattails. During the Everton game City ruled the field with an astonishing 82% of the possession. The individual player performances during that match were equally impressive.
An Exciting Season
There was hardly been a dull moment in this year’s Premier League. Far from your typical season, titans have fallen and underdogs have risen. The wild roller coaster ride this past season made for some of the best games we have seen in the history of the sport. We have watched right in front of our eyes heroes rise and fall on the field, leading their team to glory or crushing defeat.
The seeming chaos of this season goes eerily hand in hand with the chaos occurring in the surrounding world. But out of all the madness, Manchester City established dominance and rose to the top of the pile, which speaks volumes to the strength of their team in such a competitive league.
Beating the Odds
After such a rousing and remarkable season, amateur and professional bettors alike saw similar upsets, as many victories went against the odds, giving favour to the gambling man who is willing to take a risk on the little fish in the pond.

To be sure, though, it’s not so much about luck (though luck certainly plays its part) as much as it is about knowing the game, knowing the teams, knowing the players and betting strategically based on that. For something as huge as the World Cup, finding professional information about teams you’re less familiar with has also never been easier. With so much excitement, there has never been a better time to get involved in the football universe.
Taking the Crown
The 2017-18 Premier League season was truly a stunning showstopper, as many considered Manchester City to be the underdog over Manchester United, who have been crowned Premier League champions 13 times in 26 seasons. They started the season strongly, but Manchester City ultimately prevailed.
Both Manchester clubs were going head-to-head at the start of the 2017-18 season but it was City’s 2-1 win at Old Trafford in early December that had them on their way to their third Premier League title in seven seasons and they never looked back. Guardiola’s side were completely dominant throughout the season which included a record 19-game winning streak in the Premier League that didn’t end until the end of December.
