City triggered a good day for favourite backers with a come-from-behind victory over Everton on Saturday, before United followed suit in the evening game.
Chelsea continued the trend on Sunday but a draw for Arsenal and defeat for Spurs meant it was the last three Premier League winning sides who were cut in the outright betting.
City still lead the way at a best of 9/4, with Chelsea 3/1 and United 6/1. Arsenal remain ahead of United in the betting with every firm at a general 5/1 and a best of 11/2 with Coral, after they too came from behind but just for a point at West Brom.
Spurs remain sixth in the betting but are out to 14/1 after they fell victims of the weekend's biggest upset, losing 3-0 at home to West Ham. Liverpool made no such mistake against Crystal Palace and are 8/1 generally.
As a consequence, Palace are no bigger than Coral's 1/6 for relegation while Sunderland, who lost to United having taken an early lead, are evens with Ladbrokes.
Cardiff are general 5/2 chances after they lost at home to Newcastle, while Sky Bet quote 5/2 about Hull after they drew 0-0 with Aston Villa.
The top-four betting sees Arsenal and United priced 1/2 with Sky Bet, with Liverpool into 5/4 and therefore ahead of 6/4 chances Spurs.
Some firms make Luis Suarez joint-favourite with Robin van Persie for the Golden Boot after he scored against Palace to make it three for the season, but at best prices van Persie narrowly heads the market at 9/2, with Suarez 5/1. The Manchester United man, winner in each of the last two seasons, also has three so far.
Daniel Sturridge, who also netted in the win over Palace, leads the way with six goals and can be backed with 9/1 at Sky Bet.
Sunday's results were celebrated by the layers, with Sky Bet's Sandro Di Michele saying: "It's fair to say both north London clubs failing to win made it a good Sunday for us.
"With Liverpool and both Manchester sides going in on Saturday we were on the back foot but punters were let down by both Arsenal and Tottenham."
