EPL Favorites Chelsea - Soccer Odds for 2014-15
The sportsbook gives Chelsea +185 soccer odds to win the English Premier League in 2014-15. They are favorites to take the league's table this season because legendary coach Jose Mourinho has an impressive new crop of players to build an identity.
Owner Roman Abramovich opened up the checkbook this summer and Mourinho did most of his shopping in Spain. Chelsea added two former Atletico Madrid stars, star forward Diego Costa and experienced left back Filipe Luis. They also welcome Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona.
The Blues are solid in all aspects of play but their best strength could be in the mid-field. Brazians Willian, Oscar, along with Belgium's Eden Hazard are the projected starters. Add Germany's Andre Schurrle into the mix and they boast on of the most creative club midfields in the world.
Chelsea finished in third place in the EPL last year and there were no trophies won in domestic or international competition during Mourinho's first season, which is actually his second stint at Stamford Bridge. When he was manager from 2004 to 2008, he won six. In 2014-15, Chelsea fans expect Mourinho to live up to his reputation as the Special One.
Nothing is ever guaranteed in the Barclay's Premier League and the usual suspects will be in the hunt for a league title. Last year's champion, Manchester City is right behind them with soccer odds of +200. Manchester United will be greatly improved now that they have Louis van Gaal running the show. Their English Premier League odds are +500. Arsenal and Liverpool can never be ignored, the two teams are +600 and +900 respectively in EPL odds for a championship.
The potential is there for great achievements in 2014 for the Blues and the Chelsea odds are looking like a solid pick to reclaim the EPL they last won four years ago.
