Betting On Next Year’s Premier League Champions
It’s now just three weeks until the next Premier League season begins and punters are busy placing their bets ahead of the next season.
Unsurprisingly last year’s champion, Chelsea, is favourite to claim the title once again with odds of around 6/4 at the majority of bookmakers. They begin their campaign with a match against Swansea and are strong favourite strong favourites to win with odds of 2/7 versus Swansea’s 9/1.
At most bookmakers Manchester City is second favourite to win next year’s campaign and they have odds of around 11/4. Manchester City have so far only made a few changes to their squad in this transfer window but it is likely that they will make a few more before it closes and this could impact the odds.
Arsenal is the bookies’ third favourite to win the league with odds of 9/2 at virtually every bookmaker. So far they have signed Petr Cech in this transfer period and the team will begin its campaign with a match against West Ham.
Joint with Arsenal at many bookmakers, and just behind at some others, are Manchester United. So far they have signed Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin. But despite these high profile signings, the bookmakers do not seem to be changing the team’s odds. However, they are tipped to finish in the top four again next year.
After Manchester United the odds become drastically longer with Liverpool as fifth most likely to win the League with odds of 20/1. Liverpool has also signed numerous players including James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne. However, it seems that the team has a way to go before they will once again be serious contenders for the title.
