Get Ready for the New Premier League Betting with William Hill!
Launched in 1992, the Premier League is the peak division in English professional football. The world’s most exciting and competitive football league is now bigger than ever. The 2016/2017 Premier League season will see some of the most expensively assembled squads in history, as English teams reap the benefits of record TV deals. All in all, 20 teams will do battle throughout the season that runs from August to May. Every game in the Premier League is a great contest and an excellent betting opportunity.
Leicester City are the current champions, after a remarkable season that saw them win the title when nobody gave them a chance. To put the achievement into perspective; they were among the bookies’ favourites for relegation at the start of the season and they won the league at odds so large (5000-1) that it has gone down in modern betting folklore.
The English Premier League is compulsory viewing because it is so competitive. No team has successfully defended the title this decade. Unlike many other European Leagues dominated by one or two clubs, there are several teams that could conceivably win the title this year. Indeed, the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City will all regard the season as a failure if they do not hold aloft the famous trophy at the end of the season.
Added to that, you have the ultimate underdog champions Leicester City, as well as Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, all vying for glory again this year. Even the perceived weaker teams will be no pushover, and as Leicester City fans will tell you; any team can scale the heights if they find the right blend of guts and determination.
Big Spending Clubs in the Hunt for Superstar Players
The bigger transfer budgets means that we are going to see the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ilkay Gundogan and Grant Xhaka joining established Premier League stars like Wayne Rooney, Sergio Aguero and Alexis Sanchez. The star power is incredible, and there is always the chance that someone can have a breakout season, just like Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez did last year. The financial power of the Premier League is attracting the world’s best players and they are set to dazzle us all in a total of 380 matches throughout the season.
If having some of the finest players in the world is not enough, another reason to celebrate the Premier League comes in the shape of the managers: Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino and Ronald Koeman are cited as the best young managers in the world and they will go head to head for the first time this season. However, it was two ‘old hands’, Claudio Ranieri and Arsene Wenger, who guided their teams to first and second place in the Premier League last year, they will not be keen to be usurped by the new generation.
