Premier League Betting Preview Season 2016/17

With the European Championships now a distant memory the European domestic campaigns roar back into action in the next few weeks. Our main focus will be the Premier League, which will kick-off in just over two weeks’ time.

Here we will take a look at the title contenders, the players likely to compete for the Golden Boot and also the teams who will be battling at the bottom. Here is our preview to enjoy!
Premier League title contenders.

The arrival of big name foreign bosses at some of English football biggest clubs has changed the landscape of the title race. Pep Guardiola’s arrival at Manchester City has made the Citizens the favourites for the title at odds of .
City’s transfer business does not yet look to be finished. The Citizens could yet add more impressive signings to that of that Spanish international winger Nolito and German international playmaker Ilkay Gundogan.

Despite finishing fifth last season, Manchester United are the second favourites to be crowned as champions in the new campaign at odds of 7/2 with Paddypower. Their status as one of the favourites for the title is based on the arrival of Jose Mourinho as the Red Devils boss.
United have made some clever moves in the transfer market by signing Swedish maverick Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Armenian captain Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Both players will add imagination and creativity to the United attack.

Chelsea looks like the most likely challenger to the two Manchester giants next season and the Blues can be backed at odds of .
The Blues title defence last season turned out to be a nightmare, as finished tenth in the English top-flight. The arrival of former-Italy boss Antonio Conte is expected to revive the flagging fortunes of the south-west London club.
The summer signings of midfield enforcer N’Golo Kante and bright young forward Michy Batshuayi look to be shrewd ones.

There will also be others teams that fancy their chances of winning the big prize next season like reigning champions Leicester, who are odds of , or last season’s runners-up Arsenal who are odds of .

The likes of Liverpool and Tottenham will be considered outsiders to be crowned champions, but they would be longshots indeed.

Betting Tip To Win The Premier League: Manchester United 7/2 with Paddypower

Much can happen in the transfer market before the window shuts, but it seems United have made some of the best moves in the transfer market. With Mourinho at the helm, the Red Devils could be a force to be reckoned with next season.

The Race for the Golden Boot
The race for the Golden Boot was highly competitive as always last season and promises to be once again. The favourite for the accolade is Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero at odds of .
The Argentinian endured the usual injury-plagued campaign last season, but still scored 23 times in the Premier League. Tottenham’s Harry Kane won the award last season scoring 25 times last season, despite enduring a slow start to his campaign.

England international striker Kane endured a difficult Euro 2016 with the Three Lions and looked fatigued. The 23-year-old may well start the campaign in a similarly slow manner this time around, but is odds of to win the award.
Manchester United’s summer signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also expected to be among the frontrunners next season in the scoring stakes. The Swede scored 52 times last season in all competitions for PSG in the previous campaign.
The veteran striker is odds of to be the Premier League’s top scorer in the new campaign.
Everton striker Romelu Lukaku found the net 18 times last season in the Premier League and despite speculation about his future on Merseyside. The Belgium international looks to be an outside bet to win the award at odds of 14/1 with 10Bet.
Chelsea striker Diego Costa struggled to find the back of the net last season. The Spaniard did score 12 goals in the top-flight in the end and like Lukaku could be a decent outside bet for the accolade at odds of .
Last season was a dream one for Leicester’s Jamie Vardy. The England international fired the Foxes to an unlikely title win with 24 goals in the English top-flight. It promises to be much harder for him in the new campaign and his odds of 16/1 reflect that.

Betting Tip To be Top Goalscorer: Sergio Aguero
The Argentinian missed a plethora of Premier League games last season, yet still finished just two goals short of top scorer Kane. If he stays fit then the 28-year-old will be the one to beat in the race for the Golden Boot.

The Fight for Survival
As is the custom the three promoted clubs will start the campaign as favourites for the drop. Hull are odds of 8/11 with Stan James, while Burnley are evens with and Middlesbrough are odds of 2/1 with .
Watford under new managerial yet again also look vulnerable to the drop at odds of 23/10 with Paddypower and West Brom are odds of 13/5 with Paddypower. Another one of last season’s strugglers Sunderland are odds of 5/2 with to suffer relegation.

Betting Tip To Be Relegated: Hull, Burnley and Watford

It is not looking good for Hull for the new campaign. Boss Steve Bruce has quit, the team only has 13 fit first team players and no new players have arrived on Humberside so far this summer. It is hard to see the Tigers avoiding the drop in the new campaign.
Burnley will always be solid under Sean Dyche, but lack true top-flight quality. The Clarets are unlikely to heavily strengthen in the transfer market either, so also look set for a quick return to the Championship.
The third promoted club Middlesbrough have strengthened their squad bringing in the likes of Victor Valdes and Alvaro Negredo. The north east club look like they mean business and concede very few goals, so they have a very good chance of surviving the drop.
The other team I believe will struggle are Watford. The Hornets have appointed experienced Italian boss Walter Mazzarri, who was once highly-rated. The former Inter boss has not really strengthened his squad and for me the Hornets could be the other team that heads into the second tier in the new campaign.
