But who are some of the teams to bet on this time around? We take a look below.
Manchester City – Winner
You’re loving it if you are a fan, and hating it if you support another team, but there is no contradicting the fact that Manchester City has been dominating the Premier League now for the last two years. As back-to-back champions of the League, they are the favourites with bookmakers, and if there is one team you want to place an early bet on, Manchester City is it. Presently, bookies have them at 4/6 odds as championship winner and considering that the team will be aiming for a hattrick this year; we can expect them to continue playing their best game so that they can enter the select group of clubs who have achieved this landmark position.
Tottenham – Top 5
So passionate are people about the Premier League around the world that they are often ready to break the law just to watch their favourite teams play. One of those teams is Tottenham who unfortunately hasn’t been able to take those finals steps to the victory stand even after playing good football consecutively for the last few years. Listed at 18/1 by the bookmakers, how the new changes in the team will affect their gameplay is yet to be seen. But if you prefer to bet on them, it’s safe to assume that they will end up in the top five for sure.
Sheffield – Relegation
There are no winners without losers, and in the Premier League, coming in last means, you are kicked down to a lower league for next season. The last thing any team wants is to be in that situation, but so is the game that someone eventually will be. Bookmakers have their eyes on Sheffield this year with 4/5 odds in the most like to be relegated category. However, keep an eye on Norwich and Brighton, both of whom are also likely to be the ones at the end of the table.
