Huddersfield Town survived an up-and-down 2017-18 Premier League campaign, and the aim will be to avoid relegation again in 2018-19. The club has already voiced its approval of manager David Wagner, stating that his job is secure even if there are early season struggles. He signed a new three-year deal in the spring, and the chairman (Dean Hoyle) is very fond of him.

While the team would love to improve upon its 16th-place finish last year (37 points), oddsmakers peg Huddersfield as one of the clubs getting relegated this season at +110 odds, behind only Cardiff City.

Fortunately for Huddersfield Town, they didn’t lose any key pieces except Tom Ince to Stoke City. They’ve brought in a number of new faces who should help the depth and versatility of the team.

Tranfers IN: Terence Kongolo (defender from Monaco), Ramadan Sobhi (winger from Stoke City), Jonas Lössl (goalkeeper from Mainz), Adama Diakhaby (winger from Monaco), Juninho Bacuna (central midfielder from FC Groningen), Erik Durm (defender from Borussia Dortmund), Ben Hamer (goalkeeper from Leicester City).

One of the glaring weaknesses is their goal-scoring ability, or lack thereof. They finished last season with 28 goals, tied for fewest in the league, and were dead last in the EPL in goal differential (-30). Shutouts doomed them in 21 of 38 matches last season, including 13 of 19 road games so that has to change.

A couple of wingers have been added to the squad to help reinvigorate the offensive dynamic, including Diakhaby. They should be able to improve upon an anemic 0.74 goals per game, and Wagner is the right guy to bring out the best in young players.

The Bet To Watch

It feels like most people are assuming Huddersfield Town will be relegated this season, but I’m going contrarian and taking Over 34.5 points (-125). That may still get them relegated, but I believe they can average a point per game this year and hit the over.
