Premier League Season Betting Preview
After going undefeated in 17 of their final 18 matches to claim their first Premier League title since 2010 last year, Chelsea enters the 2015-2016 season as a solid +145 favourite to repeat as league champions in Premier League futures betting at Bovada.
The Blues notched 12 victories and five draws in their final 18 games to break open a tight three-way race atop the table at midseason and finish the campaign a full seven points ahead of second-place Manchester City.
The Citizens, whose six-match winning streak down the stretch left them short of their third EPL title in four years, remain a major threat to Chelsea on the Premier League odds at Bovada, where they are pegged at a strong +270.
Arsenal rebounded from a sluggish first-half, winning 10 of their final 14 matches to finish third on the EPL table and qualify for the Champions League for a stunning 18th straight year, and have attracted attention as a +425 bet in Premier League futures wagering at Bovada.
Coming off a disappointing fourth-place finish last season, 17 points back of Chelsea, Manchester United rounds out the front of the pack in EPL betting with +475 odds.
Liverpool, who finished last year in sixth place on the league table, sit well back at +10400, followed by Tottenham Hotspur, who kick off their season at +24900, and Everton FC at +26900.
Stoke City is pegged +139900, ahead of West Ham United and Swansea City, who are deadlocked at +154900, while Newcastle United's +204900 odds are just ahead of Crystal Palace, who trail at +209900.
West Bromwich Albion is listed at +219900, followed by Leicester City at +239900, Aston Villa at +244900, and Sunderland at +269900.
