The first game of the new Premier League season is very close, and the media are gearing up for one of the most interesting seasons in recent times. We have lots of new world-class coaches (Mourinho, Guardiola, Conte), a new champion (Leicester) and more teams than ever competing for the title and places which will take them into Europe. The first game will feature the holders, Leicester, who will travel to a newly-promoted team, Hull City.
English Premier League Betting Preview, Odds And Tips – Hull City vs Leicester City
Writing any description about Leicester is becoming progressively harder – the entire world knows their story and is expecting to see them play in the Champions League this year, along with a good title defense campaign. Their transfers have been less-than-spectacular, sadly – but can we really judge?
We weren’t extremely fond of Vardy and Mahrez before they joined the Foxes, and look what Ranieri has done with the two. Although nobody expects Leicester to defend their title, their crazy story might just go on – and everything starts at Hull.
Hull City reached the Premier League after finishing 4th in the Championship and promoting via playoff after a 1-0 final victory over Sheffield Wed. They had the worst summer of all Premier League teams – manager Steve Bruce left after a lack of transfer activity, and the club is currently run by caretaker manager Mike Phelan.
To top it off, Diame also left for Newcastle, with no clear first-team signing made by the club. They are widely seen as relegation favorites by the media, and rightfully so – even if they manage to recover during the season, they surely won’t produce fireworks in the beginning.
From a betting perspective, the match seems rather easy, and will probably follow last year’s trend for Leicester games. Few goals (under 2,5 games is a good idea), but with Leicester widely expected to win a point or points from the game.
A Leicester victory has great odds, a +0,5 handicap bet is still acceptable, while a bet that Hull won’t score is also acceptable. We won’t expect fireworks here, with the game being touted as the dullest debut in recent years.
