The Premier League season gets underway this weekend and for the first time those in the know believe that the title race can realistically be won by only two teams Man Utd and Chelsea. These are the same teams that have fought out the Premier League for the last number of years and the term the top four which includes Liverpool and Arsenal is now becoming extinct.

The money being spent by the top two can not be matched by Liverpool and Arsenal, the close season action demonstrates this with Liverpool unable to secure the services of Gareth Barry from Aston Villa and Arsenal losing players due to their inability to pay the top wage rates to their players. So let’s call a spade a spade, money talks and this results in the two sided finishes that we have seen in the Premier League over the last few seasons.

The Premier League Betting demonstrates this point very well with the UK online bookmakers making Man Utd the 11/8 favourites and Chelsea a best price of 15/8 with Paddy Power Bookmaker. The rest almost do not count with Arsenal best price 6/1 and Liverpool even bigger at 7/1, the next team in the betting before any Live Football Scores are registered this weekend, is Spurs at a massive 66/1, so keen are the bookies to get some money in their satchels for the other teams that they are offering such massive odds along with great Premier League Free Bets incentives for new customers.

When considering our Premier League tip we see very little value at these prices but if there is some to be had, Chelsea look to have turned a corner this season and as there is a whole new aura about the club with Scolari at the helm and the likelihood of more transfers before the early season deadline a 15/8 bet on them winning back the title could well pay dividends come April 2009.
