Heading into the season, the Blues were given a five point head-start in the betting markets where teams start off the season with points from the bookie.
The team gained ninety-three points in the actual league. Add in the five that the bookies gave the side ahead of the season, and they finished up at ninety-eight.
Just like in the real league, Tottenham Hotspur finished in second place with ninety-four points. They started off the year with an eight point head-start.
Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion came in third place with 85 each. The Reds had seventy-six points in the actual league, West Brom started with forty points.
Regular visitors may be aware that I like having a punt on these bets every summer. I took Sunderland with the thirty-eight points this season. What an abysmal choice that turned out to be, eh?
I'll be giving this another ago in August.
