Football sports betting: the winner of this season’s Premiership

by | 11th, January 2013

AT the halfway stage of this season’s Premier League season, it would perhaps be fair to say that the league has been both predictable and unpredictable. When it comes to the former, few observers will be surprised to see the two Manchester sides sitting first and second in the table, but the middling performances of Manchester City during the first half of the season would not have been what many would have predicted before the start. So at this stage, which side is likely to go on and win it?

Just now it is likely that a lot of those who wager on it will be putting their money on Manchester United with some degree of confidence, as they hold a commanding lead at the top, and there is no doubt that in the past a seven-point lead would have meant the title going to Old Trafford. However this current United side are attractive and exciting to watch, but also terminally shaky in vital areas of the team (notably central midfield and defence) and these weaknesses saw them squander a similar advantage last season.

On the other hand, Manchester City look a shadow of the side that won the title last season – particularly up front, where strikers like Tevez and Aguerro have failed to reproduce the form of last year. Factor in the continuing off-field issues – exemplified by the ridiculous Mario Balotelli – and City clearly have just as many vulnerabilities as United. This makes betting on the winner a lot more challenging than it might appear.

It also probably makes it a bit too much pressure for some – especially those with an emotional investment in either team – which means they look elsewhere for football betting. That is why online casinos like ones reviewed in Belle Rock Entertainment offer football games such as the slot Game On to appeal to those who want to combine the two in a way that is fun, but slightly less of a risk to the heart rate. They provide a genuinely football-based casino experience, making them ideal as a complement – or alternative to – the pulsating Premier League betting battle.
