Predictions for the Barclays Premier League 2016/17 season

Deal making in the summer transfer window has been active for the big clubs this year. Manchester United have had an overhaul by Jose Mourinho cutting out 4 players and landing the Frenchman Paul Pogba who currently plays for Juventus. Adnan Januzaj, Andreas Pereira, and Paddy McNair are gone. Bastian Schweinsteiger has be left back in reserve. With Mourinho shaking things up at Old Trafford Man United are a team to focus on this season.

Arsene Wenger may spend more money than was in the transfer kitty at the start of the summer transfer window. Alexandre Lacazette from Lyons on his own is expected to cost more than £50M. Arsenal are beefing up midfield with Granit Xhaka who has costed £30M.

Tottenham Hotspur have sealed a number of moves early on in the transfer window. Dutch forward Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar and midfielder Victor Wanyama from Southampton have already been signed. Georges-Kevin N’Koudou is on his way from Marseille currently a France U21 forward.

Chelsea may be signing Romelu Lukaku from Everton to replace an outgoing Diego Costa and have reached an agreement to sign Marcin Bulka the 16 year old shot stopper from FCB Escola Varsovia.

Last season one of our big predictions for the league winner market was a lay bet on Chelsea who where the favourites to win the league. With the whole season to go Chelsea’s odds just kept getting longer and longer increasing the value of the bet. Left to the end of the season it produced a nice profit. A back bet on Arsenal ‘cashed out’ before the end of the season did the same.

What are the predictions for 2016/17? Here is how we would lay out our mini sports book for the Premiership this season.

Bet like a bookie. Barcelona vs Arsenal Champions League

UEFA Champions League
Tuesday, 23 February, 19:45
Emirate Stadium

One of the characteristics needed to hone your skills as a sports bookmaker is a keen eye for what’s happening in the market as well as the sport.

Arsenal play Barcelona in their first game in the round of 16 after qualifying in the group stage. Arsenal will need to give them all they’ve got to show their commitment to winning the Champions League. Messi had a knee ligament injury at the end of last year and was also diagnosed with kidney stones in December making it likely that he will not be 100% for this match if he plays.

Arsenal have a good chance in this Champions League match

Arsenal have played formations that have proved troublesome for Barcelona’s Neymar, Suarez and Iniesta previously. Arsen Wenger can be stubborn with team formations, but, a surprise performance is a real possibility.

Arsenal odds may be too long and recent market history looks interesting. Furthermore, Arsenal are playing at the Emirates Stadium.

How did our Facebook tips perform in 2015? Setting up a sports book on the Barclays Premiership

During 2015 we have made various tips and predictions on our Facebook page. For fun. We performed quite well. For the tips we made you can visit the our Facebook timeline and scroll or search through to get the details. You may think that’s great but how can we profit from these sorts of opinions? Betfair is a great tool to allow normal punters to play bookmaker. This post will explain some techniques for setting up a simple sports book without needing hundreds of thousands of pounds (or currency equivalent).

Barclays Premiership football has seen some big changes in the 2015/16 season including Manchester United and Chelsea not living up to the their fans expectations. A big shock for Chelsea was that Jose Mourinho ended his job at the club but the bigger shock has been their bad performances.

Earlier in the season we predicted that Leicester City was a team to watch. Our tips included both teams to score and win tips. Other things we predicted for the season was that Chelsea was priced as the favourite to win the Premier League at the start of the season. In our opinion the odds did not reflect their true chance of success especially considering the pedigree of Manchester City and an Arsenal who looked like they where turning a corner.

Making a sports book is basically setting out your opinion about which teams are priced at the correct odds and more importantly which teams are not. For instance we predicted Chelsea’s odds would increase and that Arsenal’s odds would Shorten. Who would have known that Leicester City’s odds would shorten so much. Considering Leicester’s form and gaining Claudio Ranieri as manger was a good indication that things where going to change for the club.

Real bookmakers provide odds on many different markets and sports. As a novice booked we just need to pick one market, for instance, the Barclays Premier League outright winner antepost market on Betfair. Next we choose which teams look like they’re due a change of opinion compared to the odds given by the bookmakers at the start of the season. Bookmakers employ intelligent people called odds compilers to maker their sports book and predict the probability of each team winning the league. They then add in their profit margins. There are so many factors that effect the rise and fall in the fortunes of Premier League teams that the odds of each team will eventually move during the season either as they become more likely or less likely to win. Certain things can really shake things up, for instance, Chelsea loosing it’s manager or Leicester city gaining an experienced manager. Alternatively it could be a key player being injured or a key signing. Either way these events cause a shift in the odds of the other contenders for the top spot.

Odds compilers are clever but they can not see the future, which allows punters on Betfair to have a bit of fun and potentially do nicely at making a bit of extra cash for themselves.
