The World Cup is over and done with. This means that players will start to trickle back to Premier League clubs to prepare for the new season.
Premier League title betting is tricky, particularly this season. It’s difficult to look past Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to sweep the league again. However, you never know how a season is going to play out. The likes of Manchester UTD, Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs have strengthened. All of those teams will be desperate to raise the bar and make a bid for the Premier League title.
Inevitably, City are 8/12 favorites after their history making title win last season. Their only signing so far this summer is Riyad Mahrez, although you could argue that they don’t need him. City’s incredibly talented squad set the standard last season, and it’s up to the chasing pack to match it.
After a fantastic last season which ended in a Champions League final defeat, Liverpool are second favorites for the title. In terms of style and entertainment, they are the closest England has to offer to Manchester City. There aren’t many neutrals, nevermind Liverpool fans, who wouldn’t love to see them win the league this year. The signing of goalkeeper Allison from Roma could be the missing piece of Jurgen Klopp’s puzzle. With Van Dijk starting his first full season for Liverpool behind Allison, they could finally have a steely defense to support their outstanding attack.
Jose Mourinho’s team finished runners up with a polar opposite style to Manchester City. They have bought well this summer, but this season the question is whether they can reach their potential. As City and Liverpool have shown, bombastic and attacking football is the way to go in the Premier League. If UTD can adopt a style to get the best out of Pogba, Sanchez, Martial et al, they could challenge City’s crown. Paddy Power has them as third favorites at 15/2.
Spurs have thrilled fans and neutrals alike over the last couple of years. Their style, based on incredibly hard work and individual brilliance in the offense, is enough to make anyone worry. Perhaps tellingly, Tottenham have made no signings so far this summer. That is the price you pay for moving into a new stadium. Spurs will hope to have the type of season that will breathe life into the new White Hart Lane. If Harry Kane comes back from the World Cup in good condition, they will undoubtedly be a contender. Can they take the next step? They are 5th favorites this year at 18/1.
