Who will go down?
We are getting to that point in the Premier League season where those clubs in the vicinity of the relegation zone – and the fans who support them – start sweating and biting their nails a lot.
The same could be true of those who placed bets on the teams to be relegated before the start of the season – although a number of those struggling at the foot of the table are clubs that might have been expected to be there. So, for those thinking of betting on it now, which clubs are odds on for the drop?
Well not surprisingly you will get the best odds on the three teams currently occupying the relegation spots: QPR, Reading and Aston Villa, who are rated 1/4, 1/5, and 8/11 respectively, at most of the sports betting sites. You will also get odds of 10/11 on Wigan, presently one place above the drop zone, but if you want a slightly riskier bet then Southampton, one place above Wigan and with odds of 11/4, could be an interesting pick.
Clearly the sides already in the relegation places are the safest bet, but Southampton have been struggling since replacing their manager and are only three points – meaning one win – above Aston Villa.
Speculating about which of these sides will go down is fascinating for everyone except those who actually support one of these clubs, and for them betting on the issue would just make things worse. A preferable alternative would probably be Soccer Safari, which is a fun football slots game available.
It has a maximum jackpot of $2000, and features the quirkiest football theme of any video slot – with animals like meerkats, cheetahs and buffalo charging around a football stadium in a jungle World Cup. Both the animals and the stadium are captured superbly by the graphics, and the bonus game where you have to try and score goals from various dead ball positions is very entertaining, while the fact that you can play it on your phone via a mobile casino makes it an ideal way to take your mind off your team’s relegation worries.
