Premier League Season – Prediction, odds and previews

We continue our Premier league season preview for the 2010-2011 season by looking at the teams of Blackburn, Blackpool, Bolton, Chelsea and Everton. Please read below as we give you our predictions, odds and previews for the coming season.


No investment from the board this season, the scoop of the summer being Pedersen signing a new contract after being able to leave for free. While Sam Allardyce has built a strong solid team at the back, there is not much flair and creativity in the side apart from Dunn. In the forward positions things are looking dire, Jason Roberts was their top goal scorer with 5 goals, and at times defender Samba was forced to play as a forward due to injuries. It does not look promising, but with Sam Allardyce making the calls, they are experienced and organised enough to avoid relegation.

To Win the Title: 2001 William Hill
To Get Relegated: 7.5 William Hill
We predict: Bottom half finish 1.44 William Hill

Transfer In:
Transfer Out: Reid (free)


What can one say about Blackpool, the miracle team that came up last season, but perhaps also the weakest team ever to come up? They might even face relegation this season, as the team might actually have weakened. With loan players gone from last season, they have not managed to sign any new reinforcements, although securing Keinan on a free transfer. It’s going to be a long hard season for Blackpool, who has base all hopes on charismatic manager Ian Holloway and midfielder Charlie Adams.

To Win the Title: 2001 William Hill
To Get Relegated: 1.25 William Hill
We predict: To finish bottom of the league 1.8 William Hill

Transfer In: Keinan (free).
Transfer Out: Al Bangura, Bouazza, Nardiello


Manager Owen Coyle has done wonders in the transfer market without spending any money this summer. Petrov will add excitement to the left, and if he can stay fit, he could be one of the best signings this season. Blake will add experience and skill upfront, while Klasnic is a phenomenal talent. All in all a promising squad, which could turn out to be one of the surprises in the top half this season.

To Win the Title: 2001 William Hill
To Get Relegated: 4.5 William Hill
We predict: Top half finish 4 William Hill

Transfer In: Petrov (free), Klasnic (free). Blake (free),
Transfer Out: Vaz Te, Al-Habsi


Chelsea doesn’t seem to be ready for the season just yet, as their loss to Manchester proved the other day. However they are still the stand out favourites, and according to the newspapers, they still have money to burn, despite spending £30 million already. If Didier Drogba and Essien stay fit, we do recommend them to win the title as well and take home one of the domestic cups.

To Win the Title: 2.62 William Hill
To Get Relegated: 2001 William Hill
We predict: To win both the Premier League and Carling Cup 21 William Hill

Transfer In: Benayoun (£6 million), Kalas (£5million).Ramires (£18million).
Transfer Out: Ballack, Cole, Belletti, Stoch, Sinclair


This could be the season for Everton, who unlike other teams have been avoiding the headlines and quietly gone about their business. Cahill, Coleman, Rodwell and vitally Arteta have all signed new contracts. Pienaar will stay for at least one season and the signing of a lower league goal scoring machine could prove to be a bargain. This is a team that last season defeated and outplayed both Chelsea and Manchester United, and if the players can all stay fit, a wondrous Champions League finish might be possible.

Transfer In: Beckford (free), Gueye (£1m).
Transfer Out: Ruddy, Gosling

To Win the Title: 101 William Hill
To Get Relegated: 67 William Hill
We predict: To finish in the top four 8 William Hill
