3 Rules for Betting on the New Football Season

Its Back Back Back
1) Beware teams looking to take that ‘next step’:
We’re looking at you Newcastle United. Finishing just below the glass ceiling can sometimes involve smacking one’s head on the damn thing, and plummeting down the table as a result. (Take Newcastle United last season for example.)
The factors involved in the precipitous declines can be varied, but participation in the never-ending Europa League is certainly one of them.
Swansea City look shoo-ins to make it through to the next phase of said abortion after their shoeing of Malmo, so as a consequence, we will lay them for a Top 10 finish at 2.7.
2) What goes up doesn’t always come down:
It is only lazy pundits these days who forecast the three elevated teams to go straight back down from when they came. Not since 2007-08 has more than one promoted team made the return journey immediately, a broadly self-fulfilling prophecy of course, as this over a long-term will weaken the top flight of its established names, permitting more promoted teams to give it a good go.
Where were we? Ah yes, Steve Bruce. He knows what the Premier League is all about. And Cardiff have a lot of money. Palace to drop at 1.56 with Betfair.
3) Jose’s Back:
Title wins at his first two attempts, with the third season marred by the fractious Abramovic antics that allowed Manchester United to nip in. There is certainly no Ronaldo-inspired side to pip him this time, so the bet of the football season has to be Mourinho’s Chelsea for the title, 3.35 with our good friends at Betfair.
