Betting on next season’s Prem

Last season’s Premier League title race proved to be pretty underwhelming, both from a football and a sports betting perspective, as Manchester City and Chelsea both failed to mount a serious challenge to United over the course of the season. The situation is likely to be different this season, with United in transition following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, and changes at both of their main title rivals as well suggesting that it will be harder to places accurate bets on the title winner.

So who are the hot favourites with the bookies and should you follow their advice? At the moment they still see Manchester United as the clear favourites to retain the title, and the odds as low as 2/1 at some sites may strike some as rather surprising given the lack of title winning experience that new manager David Moyes has.

He is certainly a fine manager, and United clearly have a strong squad, but it is not without weaknesses – and it seems unlikely that the departure of Ferguson will have no effect. Manchester City have odds of 9/4 at many sports betting sites, while Chelsea’s vary considerably. Given Mourinho’s experience (and the title winning experience within the squad) a bet on them at 5/2 could be worth considering – or you may wish to hold off on your bets and play a football slots game like Shoot at online casino sites while you let the season progress a little.
