Have you decided who will win the Premiership this season? It seems that the bookmakers are unanimous in thinking it will be Manchester City, Chelsea or Manchester United, and they are probably correct. It is always good to think that this will be the year that a club such as Arsenal, Tottenham or Liverpool finally makes it, but that is more likely to happen in fantasy football than in the real world.
Let’s take a look at the odds currently on offer. There are so mixed you might be forgiven thinking you are playing at a casino. At the bottom of the list of clubs Crystal Palace is priced as long as 15,000/1, and at that price a bet is very tempting, and no doubt that is what the bookmakers are banking on.
They are not really putting their livelihoods at risk. In fact all clubs lower than third favourite have very attractive odds. Arsenal is available at 18/1, Tottenham and Liverpool at 20/1, and Everton at 500/1. Certainly a small bet on Everton is too good to resist. Most people will bet on one of the top three clubs, Manchester City and Chelsea are the top two favourites at 9/4 and Manchester United is the third favourite at 3/1.
Generally you don’t have to wait till the end of the season before the bookmakers pay out. Once a clear winner emerges many bookmakers will settle the debt early, but there is still a fair wait before that happens. It’s always a problem with long term bets. If you are getting a little impatient, a quick cure is to pop over to your favourite online casino for a few spins on the football themed slot game called Game On.
With the chance of winning one thousand times your original stake this is a serious slot, but it is also a great deal of fun. Styled on the 2006 World Cup with animals as players, this three reel rapid action slot includes nudge and hold features and skill based bonus rounds, it is crazily addictive.
