Betting on the Premier League is fast overtaking horse racing as the most popular event to bet on.
Football betting is a great way of having fun and making some seriously big money – and there’s no better league to bet on than the Premier League.
With every club able to beat any other, there are always some brilliant football betting opportunities even if you avoid backing the favourites like Manchester United and Manchester City…
Chelsea and Arsenal are still major threats
It’s an unusual position for Chelsea to be in but, with Manchester United continuing to strengthen and City’s owners spending millions to make them a world force, the Blues are amongst the outsiders for the Premier League.
They may have won three Premier League titles since Roman Abramovich purchased the club, but the football odds show they are not the favourites for the title any longer.
With a young boss in Andres Villas-Boas and aging players like John Terry and Frank Lampard, the football odds are stacked against the Blues for once.
Meanwhile, Arsenal look a long way off winning another Premier League title.
Recent years have seen the Gunners lose stars like Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and, before that, Thierry Henry.
Arsene Wenger has been finding it increasingly difficult to find replacements for these world class players and, with the North London side not able to compete financially with the aforementioned teams, they have slipped back.
Wenger is a shrewd boss though and his sides are always packed with potential.
They have an excellent record in the Champions League though, so the football betting odds for Arsenal are always going to be worth keeping an eye on.
