6/4 - 21/04/2013
With United cruising towards regaining the title as rivals City slump to a 3-1 defeat against Tottenham, Sky Bet open betting on the following campaign, installing the soon-to-be-champions as 6/4 favourites.
15/8 - 8/05/2013
Confirmation that Sir Alex Ferguson is set to end his 26-year reign at Old Trafford prompts Sky Bet to push United's odds out from 6/4 to 15/8, the same price as City.
5/2 - 18/08/2013
United begin the season as third favourites as Chelsea are backed in from an opening price of 5/1 to 9/4 alongside City following the return of Jose Mourinho. The Blues are by far the best supported side in the market before a ball is kicked with David Moyes' men attracting relatively little money.
3/1 - 27/08/2013
United fail to break down a stubborn Chelsea side in Moyes' first competitive game in charge at Old Trafford. With City having lost at Cardiff, the Blues are made outright favourites for the title.
4/1 - 01/09/2013
A 1-0 defeat to bitter rivals Liverpool sees expectations tempered further with Moyes' wretched record at Anfield extended, having failed to win there in 12 attempts as Everton manager.
11/2 - 22/09/2013
United are thoroughly outclassed in a 4-1 thumping by neighbours City, who are consequently installed as 7/4 favourites for the Premier League title.
7/1 - 29/09/2013
West Brom record their first win at Old Trafford since 1978, leaving United with their worst start to a Premier League campaign in the Premier League era, collecting just seven points from six games. Early leaders Arsenal move ahead of Moyes' men in the outright betting for the first time as they rack up a fifth successive win, while Liverpool and Tottenham follow closely at 9/1 apiece.
