Chelsea Second Favourites in Premier League Odds As Task Gets Harder
Chelsea won the Premier League for the second time in three seasons by storming to the title last time out, but with the top contenders investing further in their squads over the summer, the competition is likely to intensify once more in the 2017-18 season, writes Nick.
Chelsea made a slow start but pulled clear at the top by putting together an incredible 13-match winning streak from October through December. Despite a strong campaign from Tottenham Hotspur in second, they fairly comfortably held onto their lead thereafter to take the title with a higher points total than six of the previous seven champions.
Only second favourites in the Premier League odds, Antonio Conte’s side will find things more difficult this time around. They benefited from a lack of European football last season and while they have brought in reinforcements, it remains to be seen whether they are capable of maintaining the same level of consistency when faced with a busier schedule.
Indeed, it is necessary to go back nine seasons to find the last time a team successfully defended the Premier League trophy. There have been four different champions in the last five years, and the fact that there are six teams all available at 10/1 or lower in the Premier League odds to win the 2017-18 title indicates just how open the race is likely to be.
Tottenham have finished in the top three in each of the last two seasons and have one of the strongest starting XIs in the league. But they haven’t invested as heavily as some of their rivals and will therefore be reliant on younger players successfully making the step up to the senior team to fill out their squad and allow them to compete at the top once again.
Manchester City and Manchester United were both put forward as potential title-winners last time out on the back of the arrival of high-profile coaches and players. While that didn’t quite come to fruition, further spending this summer should see both enter the new season in a good position to challenge. Of the two, City look the more likely champions.
Liverpool pipped Arsenal to the final top-four spot last season but like Chelsea will have the added burden of European football to deal with during the new campaign. It will be interesting to see if their high-octane style can be sustained across a greater volume of fixtures.
Arsenal failed to finish in the top four for the first time in 20 years but have kept faith with long-term manager Arsene Wenger despite a good amount of supporter unrest. Wenger and his team need to bounce back with a strong season this time around.
Everton were the best of the rest last season and after strong investment this summer will be confident of at least maintaining that position. Southampton, Leicester City and West Ham, whose signing policy lacks long-term foresight but should set them up fairly well for the coming season, will all hope to challenge them.
Punters expecting lightning to strike twice in three years can get on Leicester at odds of 200/1 to win the Premier League, positively miserly compared to the 5000/1 available two seasons ago.
Premier League Relegation Odds: Tight At The Bottom
While the battle for the title is likely to dominate discourse, the other end of the Premier League table will be just as competitive.
Newly promoted sides Huddersfield and Brighton are among the early favourites in the bookmakers‘ Premier League relegation odds for the drop and will be looking to make strong starts to the campaign to establish a base from which to compete for survival. Newcastle went up as champions, can count on the experience of coach Rafael Benitez and should be okay despite some struggles in the transfer market.
The remaining relegation candidates comprise the teams that narrowly avoided the drop last time out. Crystal Palace and Swansea will both hope to enjoy less stressful campaigns under more stable leadership, but that could yet prove to be wishful thinking. Watford finished badly and need their change of coach to come off for them, while Burnley will do well to over-perform shaky underlying statistics for a second consecutive campaign.
Leicester were all the rage in the relegation odds this time last year, with a faction of punters betting on failure after the team’s heroics of the previous season. This time they start the new term as 14/1 shots for the drop.
Bournemouth, Stoke and West Bromwich Albion will all view themselves as top-10 challengers rather than relegation material but in what is likely to be a close and competitive table, a few bad results could easily be the difference between mid-table comfort and a battle for survival.
