2016-17 EPL Season Preview & Betting Tips

August 13, 2016 by Posted in Soccer Tips


There’s never a doubt on the popularity of English Premier League (EPL) which continues to be one of the most followed football leagues in the world. There has been a lot of exciting new names – players and managers – ready to embark on their EPL journey, the 2016-17 Premier League season promises to be full of action.

Last year threw one of the biggest surprises in the history of Premier League with underdogs Leicester City beating the odds and expectations to emerge triumphant. An encore from the Foxes is highly unlikely and at odds of $26.00 with William Hill, they are a long shot for the title.

Manchester City gave shape to their long-term ambition by clinching the services of Pep Guardiola who should be their X-Factor for the season. Having grabbed the services of John Stones and Leroy Sane, Guardiola’s team looks well set to mount a challenge for the title. At odds of $3.00 with William Hill, the Citizens will head into the season as favourites to lift the title.

Manchester United have responded to the disappointment of missing out on Champions League by splashing in the transfer market. The capture of Jose Mourinho was followed by the arrival of big names like Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Odds of $4.25 with William Hill make them one of the favorites but doubts on their consistency make them a risky bet.

Arsenal will no doubt start their season just like every other – hoping to win that elusive Premier League title. Unfortunately for Arsene Wenger and the Gunners’ fans, there is very little from them to showcase for their hunger, which casts a shadow over their ability to stay in the race. Top four looks well within reach but odds of $6.00 with William Hill for the title make them a very risky punt.

Chelsea are coming off a very disappointing season but they were able to sign a terrific replacement for Jose Mourinho in Antonio Conte. The Italian will bring stability to Stamford Bridge but winning the title could be a difficult task. But odds of $6.50 with William Hill could be enticing if you are trying to be aggressive.

Among others watch out for Liverpool who under Jurgen Klopp could be a dark horse for the top four – odds of $2.20 with William Hill. Tottenham Hotspurs may find the going tough with the burden of Champions League football, which could mean their top four chances are tough.

There’s nothing to complain from the fans though as the platform is set for another exciting season. Mourinho, Guardiola, Klopp, Conte, Koeman, Wenger – it’s not just the players but even the managers who are ready to hog the limelight.
