The Premier League

Perhaps over recent years the Premier League has been a little too predictable, especially in its higher echelons; however that is likely to change and the 2013-14 Premier League season appears to be heading towards being considerable more competitive and more tightly contested. This has been brought about by a major management shuffle at the top end, and the management structure has changed in all three of last season’s leaders. There has also been some game changing transfers to factor into your calculations.

The biggest change is Manchester United. Currently priced at 5/2 the club is now only the third favourite to win the Premier League. The departure of Sir Alex Fergusson and the forthcoming departure of Wayne Rooney are having a significant impact on the betting odds. The favourite club to win the Premier League is Chelsea and this has been spurred on by the return of Jose Mourinho six years after his original departure. With odds as short as 2/1 this would seem to be a little short to be considered value and you might be better advised to look a little deeper; for instance you can find odds as long as 11/1 fir quality clubs such as Arsenal or even casino style odds such as 40/1 on Tottenham.

Perhaps the weather is still a little hot for football, but while you are waiting for the start of the season a great way to get your football betting in training is to shoot over to your favourite online casino and play some football themed slots games. If you are a little old-school in your choice of slot games, then try out the retro football themed slots game called “Game On”. This is a three reel slot game with just the one pay line so there is no danger of getting lost. It combines the best of one-arm bandit slot machines with a modern football theme and there is a £10,000 bonus which is a great way to sustain your interest.
