Premier League Winner Tips: Man City

Kicking things off in unsurprising fashion, it’s hard to look past odds-on favourites Man City to win the Premier League.

Even without the £100m addition of Jack Grealish (and potentially Harry Kane), City are the strongest side in the division, and are absolutely packed to the brim full of proven, serial winners.

It’s hard to see any chinks in their armour whatsoever, whereas their competitors are still not quite up to their level.

The side who beat City in the Champions League final, Chelsea, are set to improve further under Thomas Tuchel—particularly if Romelu Lukaku returns to Stamford Bridge—and he’d no doubt address some of their issues in front of goal, but I still believe Tuchel needs another full year before he can realistically compete with Guardiola’s men over 38 matches. That said, Chelsea look a good bet for 2nd place.

Liverpool will be delighted to see Virgil van Dijk return to action, but aside from him and Ibrahima Konate, they haven’t strengthened in other areas, while the departure of Gini Wijnaldum may be felt more than some expect.

Man Utd are the only other side who have a chance this year, and while they have undoubtedly strengthened, in the shape of Raphael Varane, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s limitations as a manager, particularly compared to his three main competitors, may still hold the Red Devils back.

Spurs, Arsenal and Leicester? Forget it.

Championship Winner See All Odds

The Championship market looks chaotic this year, but Fulham at 11/2 looks like good value.

New manager Marco Silva has added Harry Wilson and Paulo Gazzaniga to his ranks, while maintaining the core of a squad who are experts at navigating out of the league, and I’m yet to see the type of overhaul which can lead to a team becoming stranded in the second tier.

Relegated West Brom and Sheffield United also have new managers in Valerien Ismael and Slavisa Jokanovic respectively, but they still don’t quite stack up to Fulham.

The Baggies are set to lose their best player Matheus Pereira, perhaps unsurprisingly, while Ismael will have to de-Allardyce much of the side after last year, which isn’t always easy.

As for Sheffield United, they’ve bagged themselves a gem in Jokanovic, and while their relegation campaign last season was harrowing, there’s no reason why they can’t be taken straight back up, albeit more likely behind Fulham.

Don’t discount the likes of Luton, Barsnley and Millwall as promotion dark horses, but in terms of finishing top, the Cottagers look the real deal.

It’ll be interesting to see how they progress without Lee Bowyer, but Charlton look like great candidates to win League One under Nigel Adkins.

The return of Jayden Stockley is an eye-catching piece of business, and this addition of another proven goalscorer could fire them right into contention, particularly as they’re never too far from the upper echelons of League One anyway.

The usual suspects of Ipswich and Sunderland still look too short to back as a winner, despite the steps both sides appear to have made in multiple areas, so they won’t be included within this acca.

Another side who are always a threat in this market are Rotherham, who are very much a yo-yo team under Paul Warne, while Oxford United have also been impressive for the last couple of years, but Charlton, with a good pre-season under Adkins, look a real force.

Newport look a monster price to win League Two at 20/1.

Michael Flynn and his side have lost two play-off finals in their last three seasons, and they’ll be desperate to finish outside them this year (in the correct direction, of course).

The Exiles’ home form has always been formidable, and with Rodney Parade back to full capacity this year, it should be a fortress once again.

Salford City are favourites for the championship once again, but aren’t being touched at 13/2, with Bradford City and Bristol Rovers next in the market at 11/1 and 12/1 respectively.

The Gas have had their pre-season thrown into chaos due to the Joey Barton troubles, although Bradford have Derek Adams in charge, which automatically turns them into instant contenders. This said, Newport’s squad still looks stronger than both.

Exeter City are another side always worthy of consideration, and they’re perhaps being overlooked somewhat in the market, however Newport’s price simply looks more appealing, hence the tip.
