English Football League 2016/17 Preview & Win Season Tickets with Skybet
English Football League 2016/17 Preview
Newcastle United [1.57] are the red-hot favorites to win the league and make an immediate return to the top flight under the tutelage of Champions League winner Rafa Benitez.
Despite losing Georginio Wijnaldum to Liverpool for £23.38m and England man Andros Townsend to Crystal Palace for £13.26m, they still retain a Premiership quality squad. They even added to their squad during the summer with even more quality with the arrivals of Prem quality players in Dwight Gayle from Palace and Matt Ritchie from Bournemouth (both for £10.2m) who dropped down a league to the surprise of many as both players are for sure Premiership quality.
One signing that I believe will be massively important for Newcastle though is the capture of Scottish International centre-back Grant Hanley from joins from Blackburn to add defensive steel and Championship league experience for the Geordies at £6.1m
Also in contention for promotion are Aston Villa [3.5], Norwich City [3.5], Derby [4.0], Wolves [5.0], Sheffield Wednesday [4.5] and Brighton [4.5] I’d personally take a punt on Newcastle, Sheff Wed and maybe Brighton to gain promotion but Leeds Utd could also be good value [13.0]
At the other end of the table Burton, Rotherham and Barnsley are favorites for the drop down to League One.
Oldham Athletic, Bury and Shrewsbury Town don’t look too good and could struggle to survive this season in League One.
Doncaster [2.50] in particular look like they could push them hard with Leyton Orient [3.0], Luton Town [3.0], Cambridge [3.5] and Plymouth [4.33] likely to challenge for play-off berths.
Accrington Stanley [28.0] could be outsiders worth a bet and could very well sneak into the play-off’s once again so they are surely a good value bet.
Morecombe, Crawley Town and Stevenage look set to struggle and face the prospect of dropping out the English Football League.
