This year’s Premier League is wide open and looks set to be one of the most enthralling seasons English domestic football has ever seen.
All of the big sides have made some big decisions whether it’s changing managers or investing heavily in players and this has thrown a great deal of uncertainty into the lives of bookmakers and online casino. Unlike sports betting, one thing that never changes at online casinos like http://www.luckynugget.com/ are the odds. In previous seasons, there may have been two big contenders who represented firm bookies favourites alongside two or three rank outsiders; this year there is realistically four top title contenders, with Man City obvious as slender favourites. If either Chelsea or Arsenal gels quickly, they may well surpass Man United as second favourites for the title, meaning it may be a good bet to get on board early and secure the best odds.
Chelsea have spent over £50 million on Eden Hazard and the much sought after Brazilian maestro Oscar. These signings push Chelsea right back into the English title/Champions League frame. Combine these signings with Mata, Ramires and the re-born Fernando Torres and you have a potent attacking threat.
Chelsea aren’t alone in signing the type of attacking third players that are now standard fare across Europe. Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger has also acquired some of the games finest roaming midfielders cum centre forwards. Giroud, Corzola, and Podolski are set to take the English game by storm, giving Arsenal their most mouth-watering array of attackers for nearly a decade.
If you combine the English games tendencies toward action, incident and open play, with the new ultra attacking 4-1-4-1/4-2-3-1 formations now regularly deployed in the Premier League, the English game could reach new levels of entertainment and those with the best attacking options should prosper more than ever. Step up Chelsea and Arsenal…
