How To Bet On Premier League Opening Weekend

We didn’t have to wait too long, but opening weekend in the Premier League is just around the corner. Some teams looks vastly different than they did just a season ago. On the other hand, some premier league teams look almost the same.

The latest Premier League odds give us a glimpse into what we can expect to see this season on the pitch and, to the surprise of pretty much no one, its Manchester City that is favored to win the league again.

Throughout the summer, Man City was expected to land Tottenham striker Harry Kane. That never materialized, but they did pick up Jack Grealish, one of the best young players in the league, to bolster their already strong midfield.

Chelsea, which has the second shortest Premier League odds, can hopefully put the finishing woes of Timo Werner behind them as they’ve added prolific scorer Romelu Lukaku to the mix up top.

Liverpool and Manchester United are also both expected to contend for a league title. But, the latest Premier League odds make it clear that Man City is the team to beat.

What does that mean for this weekend? Nothing really, other than the fact that you can expect them to be massive favorites as they take on Crystal Palace.
