Premier League 2015/6 Season Preview: Drama and Thrills for Sports Punters

Wheels have been set in motion for a dramatic 2015-2016 Premier League season. Online sportsbooks anticipate fierce competition and high attendance by punters.

The best and the worst teams in the Premier League prepare for a new season and regardless of objectives, they are fully aware of the difficulty of the task at hand. Chelsea, Manchester United and its city rival as well as Arsenal compete for the trophy and the reigning champions are credited with the first chance by Bet365 at 6/4. At the bottom of the standings, even more teams prepare for a long and exhausting fight and the outcome here is even more difficult to predict.

Three Teams Challenge Chelsea for the Lead

The Blues didn’t trade Diego Costa which continues to be regarded as the second favorite for the top goalscorer with average odds of 11/2. He is a formidable striker and if he can stay healthy he will be a permanent danger, next to Hazard and Fabregas. Mourinho is widely regarded as the best manager in the Premier League and perhaps in the world, so Chelsea has one intangible advantage over the pack.

Winner Sports regards Manchester City as the strongest challenger for the leaders at 11/4, ahead of both Arsenal and Manchester United. The Gunners are priced at 5/1, while those who bet on the Red Devils can expect a return on investment of six times the stakes. Aguero will spearhead the offensive for City and the fact that bookmakers have him as the ante-post favorite for the Golden Boot in the Premier League says a great deal about his quality.

Strikers alone won’t win a championship and that’s why Manchester United is not overly concerned about losing Falcao to Chelsea. The Londoners used Monaco as a proxy to acquire the Colombian, but given his fitness concerns this transfer could backfire in the second half. Meanwhile, United consolidated its backline and acquired Schweinsteiger and Darmian to assist the midfielders. Arsenal finished the last season on a positive note and also acquired Petr Cech from Chelsea, so they shouldn’t be ruled out either

Plenty of Drama in the Relegation Zone

The teams expected to struggle at the bottom of the standings are Watford, Norwich, Bournemouth, Sunderland and Leicester. William Hill regards the newly promoted Watford as the most likely team to be relegated and offers odds of 3/4. Norwich and Bournemouth are virtually tied at 6/5, while bookmakers show more respect to Sunderland to avoid this dreadful fate. They managed to stave off relegation several times over the last decade, once in dramatic fashion, two years ago.
