The new season kicks off Friday 11th Augusty with Arsenal facing Leicester at home. As always, I recommend that you wait a few weeks to see how teams play until you do any betting, use small stakes or play in running. Over the season, the skill will prevail but early on when teams are gelling, you can get some strange results. I would not touch Arsenal at 1.4.
Out right 2017/2018
City are outright favourites at 2.87. That has no appeal to me. They have a great squad but I don't like Pep. He can win with Barcelona and Bayern Munich but has no experience of building a side. City have strengthened a lot over the summer with Silva, Moraes, Walker and Mendy being the pick of the bunch. Their defence will be formidable if Pep gets the tactics right. Still though, I have no interest in betting on them.
Manchester United seem a much better bet to me. They clicked towards the end of last season and with Lukaku replacing Ibrahimovic, they should be able to get the goals. Just a small bet as there isn't that much value in the outrights. I suppose as its the most popular, its the most analysed so the odds will reflect the probabilities.
To find some value, you have to look at less popular, more obscure bets.
Spurs not to finish in the top 4 at 2.1. I like this one. Spurs will be playing their home games at Wembley so may not have the advantage they had at White Hart Lane.
West Ham to finish in the top half at 2.37. Some decent signings and finished 11th last season on goal difference.
