Betting on the Premier League

Putting bets on who will win the Premier League title is always going to be a risky business – just ask all those people who confidently put money on Manchester City to retain it last year – but this is one of the trickiest times of the year to get it right.

Although the bookies have made pre-season odds available to football betting fans, the fact that most of the major summer transfer activity has yet to take place means that we do not really know how strong the squads of the sides challenging will be once the season starts.

Manchester United have already been linked with a number of big signings – including the likes of Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid – suggesting that the intent is there to back David Moyes. They are the bookies favourites at 2/1, and these kinds of signings would only reinforce that.

Arsenal are rated 12/1, and the current squad is surely not strong enough to challenge, but they have also been linked with the likes of Wayne Rooney, again indicating an intent to really go for it next season, while Chelsea (5/2) and Manchester City (12/5)will surely also strengthen in a bid to take on United, but the best tip may be to wait and see what signings are made before betting, taking the opportunity to sample a football themed online casino game like Shoot while you do.

Shoot – which is named after the almost legendary magazine – provides football and casino slots fans with an interesting mix of the nostalgic and the modern. Find the best Canadian mobile casino games at The game has a sub-headline stating “you are about to return to football’s golden era” – which may well strike a chord with fans currently trying to find the money for inflated Premiership season ticket prices.

This boast is backed up, particularly in the two bonus games – Trade’em Up and Magazine – which feature players like Maradona, Pele and Van Basten as well as some of the best Shoot magazine covers. All this celebration of the past is wonderful for any fan with an interest in the history of the game, but happily there is nothing olde worlde about the Shoot jackpot – worth a cool $20,000.
