Betting tips for the English Premier League 2016/17


We are almost halfway through the 2016/17 English Premier League season, with the hectic festive period about to get underway, and the sides that have a genuine chance to win the title are becoming apparent. Of course, some fans don’t just like predicting the winner, they also enjoying betting on it, as it adds to the excitement. This piece will outline some of the teams with good title winning odds.

One side that is certainly in the mix is Chelsea – who are getting stronger and stronger under new manager Conte. After hitting a difficult spell of form early in the season, with just one point from a possible nine during a very poor September that included defeats to title rivals Liverpool and Arsenal, they have recovered impressively. October saw Conte respond to this slump by trying a new tactical formation of 3-4-3 and the Blues have never looked back. They have won every single league match since then – a total of eight wins in a row – and look reborn after the struggles that saw them end up in mid-table last season. This accounts for their hot favourite 5/4 title odds and they must certainly be taken very seriously as contenders to reclaim the crown. Manchester City are the side placed just behind them in the bookies’ odds, ranked 3/1, to win the 2016/17 Premier League. For much of the early season they were favourites, having gotten off to a flyer, but their form has dipped as the weather has grown colder. A lot was expected from City this season, after they disappointed last time round and barely scraped a fourth-placed finish, mainly because of the appointment of top boss Pep Guardiola. The former Barcelona manager certainly appeared to have blown away the cobwebs of last season early on, as he implemented a free-flowing, attacking style – and secured maximum points from the first six games in the process. These included a crucial victory over local rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford, but otherwise were mostly against sides City would be expected to beat. The defeat at Tottenham exposed their vulnerabilities when faced with high tempo pressing and City have never quite found their rhythm since – with three draws and a defeat in the subsequent seven. This has seen them drop to fourth in the table and, while they are hardly out of contention, they no longer look like title certainties.

Liverpool have improved dramatically in their second season under German Jurgen Klopp, after finishing eighth last year. The only big addition during the summer was Sadio Mane, but he has been superb and Klopp is getting most out of his squad. They are scoring for fun, and are ranked 5/1 for their first title since 1990, but they still have defensive issues – exposed again as Bournemouth came back from 1-3 down to win 4-3. Any one of these three could end up as the title winners, but for those wary of betting so early, the football-themed slots game Soccer Safari available from http://www.casinoonline.co.nz, will be an ideal alternative way of gambling on the sport.

If you can manage to pick the right team for the title and also claim the Soccer Safari jackpot, you will be in the money come the summer.
