A scene we've all missed of late.

Is anyone betting against these scenes in May?

At this point of time it is almost certainly safe to say that the 2012 – 2013 Premier League champions are going to be  United. Sitting on a twelve point lead over second place Manchester City with 28 games already played couldn’t be much better if you are a United fan. Hopefully if you are then you will have put some big money on the Reds before the odds shortened as much as they have.

The odds for on long shot Premier League champions are almost laughable, as you can still find bookmakers who are willing to take your money on Arsenal with odds of 1000/1. Chelsea is priced at around 300/1, so is Tottenham and even City is priced at around 20/1. Only die-hard optimistic fans, or some of the more deluded ones,  would bet at those odds. Really betting on the Premier League champions is just not worth the money, but there are still plenty of special bets, for instance on which club will come third. And of course there is still the FA Cup to look forward to, where currently City is the favourite and Man United second according to bookmakers.

If you missed out on early Premier league betting options that could have won you some money had you been quick enough, you can still find consolation at your online casino where you can win big on some of the excellent football themed slots. One that people keep on returning to at JackpotCity is the slot that was modelled on the World Cup in South Africa. The slot is called Soccer Safari and is a little different from most football slots, for instance the players are all based on wild animals such as zebras and elephants and there are some exciting bonus features where you can win prize jackpots.

    Short memory no? Bit soon to be counting the chickens isn’t it? I thought Man City were 18/1. 18’s or 20’s I’ll be throwing a couple of Euro on them just to cover myself in case the unthinkable happens.

  2. Can’t be having this at all. Not at all.

    “At this point of time it is almost certainly safe to say that the 2012 – 2013 Premier League champions are going to be United.”

    City turned around 8 points with 5 games to go last year so 12 points in 10 games can happen – very easily.

    Still have to go to Arsenal and Stoke, as well as welcome City and Chelsea.

    Do not want to be pessimistic, but just can’t see it as a foregone conclusion.

    Let’s talk with three games to go 🙂
