Here are my top 3 value football outright bets for the 2016/17 season bets on where I see some initial value…..a lot trickier than last year!
I can’t look past Man City and Chelsea as contenders for the title and unfortunately the odds reflect this. Man City are far too short and I can’t see any value in them. Tottenham are good value but I don’t feel they have strengthened enough to be a challenger. The main bet I’d recommend is laying Man U. They may have a good run here and there but I can not see them getting close to winning the title. They are almost as short at Chelsea at 4/1 so definitely worth a lay and then hedge out when the odds drift. The only other bet I’ll go for is a bet on Chelsea, purely as they are better value than Man City.
Lay Man U at 4/1 on Betfair
Back Chelsea on most sites at 7/2.
The Championship looks wide open this year with any number of teams that could either win it or end up in mid-table. Fulham were in great form at the end of last season and look good value out of the top teams. Similar to what Leicester did in the premiership, I’m expecting Fulham’s good form to continue into the new season and I’ll put them as favourites for the title.
Back Fulham to win the Championship at 9/1 with Ladbrokes
