When played right, football betting can not only boost your bank balance but can also add an extra level of excitement and interaction with the beautiful game. Here are some Premier League outright betting tips and news to help you get the money rolling in.
The Premier League odds are currently in Chelsea’s favour for a second year straight, with Mourinho’s men pegged as the favourite’s to retain their championship. The Blue Lions are a very tempting safe betting option, with best priced 7/4 odds available at various sportsbook firms. Manchester City are second favourites with 3/1 odds, while Arsenal are close behind with 4/1 odds of stealing the crown.
There have been a lot of new signings in an effort to boost match odds. Petr Cech is a big arrival for Arsenal, after he was sold to the team from Chelsea. Manchester City are sitting pretty after adding £49 million Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph to their roster. Liverpool have made up for the loss of Sterling with not one, not two, but seven new signings, including £32.5 million arrival Christian Benteke. Manchester United is also following suite, with eight new names on their cards. It’s yet to be seen whether United and Liverpool’s hard work and tactics will pay off, with the teams currently placed at 11/2 and 28/1 odds respectively.
In terms of best player picks, manager Van Gaal is in the best position. United’s Wayne Rooney is playing strong up front and scored a massive six goals in the opening weekend, more than any other player. It’s looking like he could be the one to watch. Sky Bet are offering 11/8 odds for him to score any time during the Spurs game. The odds are at 7/2 for an opener goal, 6/1 for two or more and 33s for a hat-trick. Memphis Depay is another big name for the team. He’s looking to make a fast start on his Premier League debut and has already impressed pre-season with his confidence and skills.
As well as doing your research on the best teams and players, it’s always important to shop around for the best Premier League exclusive betting offers before putting your money where you mouth is. Although most sportsbook firms will offer the same odds for Premier League betting on the 2015-16 football season, some will go that little extra way to sweeten the deal. Take a look at the online sportsbook and football odds and you’ll discover there’s an array of sports bonuses and promo codes on offer as well, to help you get more bang for your buck. Take your time, click around and make sure you’re getting the best deal.
And don’t worry if your team isn’t looking too hopeful. You can always swallow your pride and place a bet on a rival football club. It may be a tough decision, but at least that way you could win some extra spending money to comfort you if your team loses.
