Premier League: who will go down?

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.
