The first game of this seasons English Premier League will see last season’s champions, Leicester City take on newly promoted Hull City. While this game might not be the most anticipated game we will see in the coming weeks, it will surely be a game that will show us how this season will look for the reigning champions.

Hull City are in some serious problem not only with the squad, but financially the club is looking problematic. This team will need to rely on the belief of the players from the past and that will even be tough since many key players have left the team during the summer. The home fans will have to get the team going here since things could get ugly really quickly if the team is not up to speed from the start of the game.

Leicester City on the other side will be full of confidence considering that they won the league last season. It is important to note that they lost a few key players during the transfer window but the likes of Vardy are still at the club and that should inspire the players to get behind the belief once again.

I think it is pretty safe to say the Leicester City will win and surprisingly we are getting better than even money for this bet so I think it is worth an investment. I think this should also be a high scoring game so I think that we are better off taking the over 2.5 goals if betting on the goal line is something of interest. That being said, I think betting on the outright result is the better option out of the two because I done see Leicester City not winning this game. 

Pick:
Leicester City
