Betting Tips For The 2014/15 Premier League Season
Although the World Cup is in full swing, the Premier League fixtures were released earlier this week so it’s time to start thinking about our bets for next season.
In the past few seasons Arsenal have gone from being a side which challenged regularly for the Premier League title, to one which has barely managed to scrape into the Champions League places and only managed to stop its trophy drought with a 3-2 win over Hull City in the FA cup. This means that the Gunners have gone from being amongst the regular pre-season favourites for the title with the bookies, to becoming more of an outside bet. This coming season, the best odds you can get on us to win the Premier League are 11/1, which hardly makes us a total outsider bet, but does represent a risk. Let’s face it, right now we don’t have the squad to win the title.
Last season we looked in a strong position for a long time, being top of the league for longer than any other team, however that doesn’t win you a title. This was reflected in the bookmakers prices who still never made Arsenal favourites, even when we were five points clear at the top of the table in February.
In order to build on last season many fans are hoping for huge summer investment, however after watching former favourite Fabregas join Chelsea, and no significant signings made by Arsene Wenger as yet, this is not the start we hoped for.
Despite our sluggish start in the transfer window, I do fully expect the boss to invest, and if we could secure some top players then the odds of 66/1 for us to win the Premier League and FA Cup double may provide good value, and you can guarantee those odds will fall once the boss starts to spend his £100m warchest.
So while the more conservative bettors will stick to backing us to finish fourth again, risk-takers like me are going to put a cheeky tenner on Arsene to win his third double at 66/1.
As it stands, obviously the safest bet would be for Arsenal to again qualify for the Champions League, which is currently on offer at 4/6. But I’m more of a risk taker and these kinds of odds could prove too dull for some sports betting fans. I like the buzz you get from really winning big. I suppose that’s why I’m also in to other forms of gambling like poker or casino games. I’m pretty sure my risk-taking reflects in how I bet on football.
Until I get a clearer idea of how Arsenal are shaping up for the new season I could look at placing a large accumulator, but I wouldn’t fancy my chances betting on foreign leagues. So how to get my betting fix this summer? My best chance would be to play a football themed game with a large jackpot. These sorts of slots games include football bonus features which as a football fan I enjoy, as well as offering me the chance to win big until the season starts again.
