Even with United’s last couple of dismal results, it’s still pretty tight at the top of the Premier League standings with just 3 points separating the two Manchester clubs, with the three London chasers not too far behind and waiting for a slip up.
Just over half the fixtures have been played and City are strong favourites to win their first championship since 1968 but they have not been in this position at this stage of the season since the 1970s. Conversely, Man United are old hands and history shows us that they seem to excel in the second half of the season. The odds are good for a United win and if we have learnt anything over the last 20 years or so, do not underestimate Fergie; United will be there or thereabouts in the final stages.
Betting on Spurs as an outside bet for the league this year is attracting a lot of UK punters to go on the internet and make their betting predictions with online bookmakers. The Lily Whites are surprisingly without a league title since 1961 and despite losing heavily to the Manchester clubs earlier in the season, Spurs have been as consistent, if not better in their fixtures since then, earning very credible results; bets are increasing.
Chelsea and Arsenal seem to be that little bit too far away to still challenge this season. Chelsea boss Villas-Boas is under tremendous pressure to win some silverware this season if he wants to keep his job but you will probably get more bets with 888sport on the Chelsea coach to be fired than to win the league this season. Chelsea are currently 4th in the standings but any predictor who has watched highlights of Chelsea games this season will not be attracted by generous odds for the Blues to go on a long, unbeaten run until May. Arsenal’s abysmal start to the season has cost them dear as they really can’t afford many more draws or defeats. There are still believers who think that Arsenal will still be in the running on the final straight of the Premier League Championship race but a better gamble would be betting on Arsenal to win the league without the Manchester clubs.
If a predictor intends to bet on the 2011/12 Premier League Championship race for the on the internet for the first time, the initial task is finding an online bookmaker to bet with. Many online bookmakers have special Free Bet offers for new players or even ‘best odds guaranteed’. 888sport offer a series of Free Bets as part of their welcome offer, as well as providing a safe, secure award-winning environment. This sort of offer highlights the competitive nature of acquiring new players online and furthermore shows why 888sport is continually rising in the standings on online bookmakers.
