With the Premier League title race pretty much over, the European and relegation battles have now assumed prominence for those betting on the league, and there are still a number of clubs who could potentially fill the three relegation places this season.
One of those clubs is Reading who, despite a recent upturn in form, remain one of the strongest bets for relegation – with odds of around 1/5 at most of the sports betting sites. This is presumably a reflection of the fact that, although they have improved since the turn of the year, they remain in second bottom position.
Unsurprisingly, the only team below Reading – QPR – are also amongst the odds-on favourites for the drop. You can get odds of around 1/3 on them to go down, although it should be noted that they have shown signs of life in recent weeks. The other odds-on favourites for the drop are Aston Villa, who are third bottom and rated 8/11 to be relegated, with the Wigan – currently one place above the drop zone – rated 10/11. Any of these teams would represent a very strong bet for relegation, although Wigan’s previous experience in relegation battles – plus their knack of doing just enough to stay up – should be noted.
Aston Villa, given their slightly higher odds and the youthful inexperience might represent a smart bet for someone betting now, although Villa fans will not want to do this. A better option for them would be the Soccer Safari football themed slots game, which is available at mobile online casino sites.
Soccer Safari is a crazy slots game involving a bunch of animals – like lions, meerkats, buffalo and warthogs – playing each other in a jungle World Cup. The graphics of the animals and the stadium are brilliantly realised, while the bonus game where you have to try and score goals – adding to your winnings each time you do – makes this a great football based game. Throw in a maximum cash jackpot of $2000, and the chance to play using your phone and a mobile casino, and it’s just the way to console yourself during the match.
