Chelsea odds-on in Premier League odds as top six pull clear
Chelsea jumped to the top of the Premier League odds following a run of 13 straight victories through the final three months of 2016 that saw them open up a solid gap to the chasing pack, writes Nick.
They made a patchy start to the season under new head coach Antonio Conte but a switch to a 3-4-3 formation saw them find the balance that has propelled them to a position of power atop the table. A January defeat to Tottenham Hotspur showed they aren’t unbeatable but they nevertheless look very solidly placed to go on from here and win the title.
Like Chelsea, Liverpool have no European commitments to interfere with their domestic campaign, which should allow for a good second half of the season. They have impressed with the intensity and slickness of their play to date, ending the calendar year with the best scoring record in the division, but defensive frailties will make a genuine title push difficult.
The two Manchester clubs were at the centre of the pre-season hype after hiring two renowned coaches in an attempt to bounce back from disappointing campaigns last time out. Pep Guardiola (pictured) has had a few teething problems at Manchester City, but they are still solidly placed at the turn of the year and can be expected to improve from here. Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United made a slow start but began to find their rhythm at the end of 2016.
Arsenal were joint top in mid-October following a run of six consecutive victories but patchier form thereafter has seen their hopes of a title bid begin to fade. It is the same old story for the Gunners and this could yet be the season in which they finally fail to qualify for the Champions League after finishing in the top four in every one of Arsene Wenger’s previous 20 seasons at the helm.
There could even be money to be made in backing Tottenham Hotspur to finish ahead of their North-London rivals for the first time since Wenger’s appointment. Spurs were only pipped to second by the Gunners on the final day of last season and again look a strong force after recovering from an uneven start to break into the top four with five straight wins over Christmas into the new year. Their form will also have both Manchester clubs on edge.
At the mid-way stage of the season, the top six have already pulled out a big gap to those behind and it is difficult to see another team breaking out and challenging their stranglehold over the European places. Southampton and Everton are the two teams who can be expected to duke it out for the title of best of the rest during the second half of the season.
Below them, Bournemouth, Stoke and West Bromwich Albion will all be hoping to finish the season in the top 10. Leicester City and West Ham both over-performed last season, the former spectacularly so in winning their first-ever Premier League title, but after bad starts will likely be content to simply maintain positions of safety ahead of the relegation battle this time around. Despite some problems, Watford should also be alright.
Premier League Relegation Odds: Six Teams Battling For Survival
That leaves half a dozen teams battling to avoid the three relegation spots. Hull and Sunderland are currently the two bookies’ favourites to go down and it is difficult to make a convincing case for either of them avoiding that fate. A new coach and potential winter reinforcements may improve Hull, but they have real issues at both ends of the pitch and it is unlikely to be enough. Sunderland, meanwhile, have averaged less than a third share of the on-target shots in their matches to date and will need a lot to go their way in order to survive.
Swansea are the other side who are odds on for the drop at the turn of the year but all may not yet be lost. Their underlying numbers are better than those of the majority of sides around them and if new coach Paul Clement can sort out a defence that leaked far too many goals under his predecessor Bob Bradley, there are reasons for cautious optimism.
Much of that arises from the fact that there are at least two other sides just ahead of the Swans who still look very vulnerable. Crystal Palace replaced Alan Pardew with survival specialist Sam Allardyce late into 2016 and have decent quality, but it is difficult to see them finding another gear if a team below puts a run together. Middlesborough are available at as long as 5/1 in the Premier League relegation odds with some bookies, which looks generous. Burnley could yet be pulled down into the battle despite a strong first half of the season.
At the start of the season there was interest in the Leicester relegation odds from punters expecting that bubble to burst in spectacular style. While that rush of betting money has been correct to a degree, as the champions have failed to reach the heights of last term, it looks like the cash will stay firmly in the bookmakers’ satchels.
