League Winners Accumulator Betting Tip
The new football season is almost upon us with the English Championship getting underway on Friday night before the new Premier League season kicks off a week later. Excitement is now reaching fever pitch as fans across the globe wait to see how their teams will fair this campaign. In this article, I will be choosing my league winners for four of Europe’s top leagues and putting them in an accumulator bet for you. All of the odds in this article come courtesy of Coral and are accurate at the time of writing.
Manchester City ran away with the league last season, racking up countless records along the way and they begin the season as favourites to do the same. Their closest competitors could well be Liverpool who have spent heavily this summer and improved on the areas they were weak in. I do think the title race will be a lot closer this season, but I’m still backing Manchester City to win it. They have one of the best squads in Europe, with so much depth in every position.
Manchester City – 8/11
The Championship is one of the most competitive leagues in the world, with so many teams challenging for promotion. I’m expecting this season to be no different with the likes of Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough, West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City all fighting to win the league. I’m backing Stoke City to get the job done though and they look to have the best squad in the division. They have managed to keep hold of a number of their best players including goalkeeper Jack Butland and central defender Ryan Shawcross. Manager, Gary Rowett, has added some attacking quality to his squad with Tom Ince and I think this Stoke side look well set to win the division this season.
Stoke City – 11/2
Italian Serie A
It’s almost impossible to look to anyone else other than Juventus in Italy. They have been all conquering in recent seasons and with with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo, you feel as though it would take a miracle for them not to win the title. Along with Ronaldo, Juventus have also brought in Joao Cancelo, Douglas Costa, Emre Can and also look set to add Leonardo Bonucci before the season begins. Their closest rivals will likely be Napoli and Roma, but this Juventus squad looks better than ever.
Juventus – 2/5
Spanish La Liga
The La Liga title race could be a close one this season. Real Madrid have taken a big gamble selling their star man, Cristiano Ronaldo, and they have also replaced Zinedine Zidane with Julien Lopetegui in the managerial hot seat. Atletico Madrid have spent wisely, bringing in Thomas Lemar, Rodri and Santiago Arias amongst others, as well as keeping Antoine Griezmann at the club. Then we have Barcelona who won the title last season. The Catalan club have added exciting Brazilians Malcolm and Arthur to their ranks along with Clement Lenglet from Sevilla. I think that with Philipe Coutinho in midfield pulling the strings, Barcelona will win the league again this season, but it could go right to the wire.
Barcelona – 4/5
