Placing bets on which team will win the Premiership title next season has been complicated by the raft of changes which have taken place at three of the four clubs that most expect to be in contention for it – Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City. Managerial changes have occurred at all three clubs during the summer, while the transfer activity has not yet begun, so it is hard for those keen on football betting to know how strong each team will be, but how do the bookmakers rate each of these teams ahead of the start?
The bookies have Manchester United as odds-on favourites at 9/4 to retain their title just now, despite the massive upheaval of Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure after 27 years at the helm. United do have a strong squad, but Wayne Rooney’s future is currently uncertain, and new manager David Moyes is not a proven championship winner.
There is not much in the odds reckoning between United and City, but the best odds you can get on the latter are 12/5 – although again they have a new manager (Manuel Pellegrini) who has never won the league before. Chelsea are one club that does have a proven winner in charge – namely Jose Mourinho – but the question is whether the squad is strong enough. Indeed ahead of the real transfer activity it is hard to assess this, which perhaps makes online casino gambling a sensible alternative just now.
Especially when nowadays you can play games which are all about football – such as the hugely popular video slots game Soccer Safari. This game features an animal version of the World Cup, including the likes of buffalo and warthogs, but there are others which are more directly related to Premier League football as well, if this is what you prefer. Plus the development of mobile casino sites means that there are apps of these football slots games available that you can download onto your mobile phone and play while you are on the go – making them a perfect alternative for the busiest of football betting fans.
