Football Betting

Football betting is available at every online bookmaker. They cover all the weekly matches, internationals and competitions, including Premiership, Champions League, World Cup Qualifiers and FA Cup. You can bet on results and the outcome of the league and cup competitions. Asian Handicap betting is becoming more popular online as it removes the draw factor out of the equation.

There are other markets though that football punters may enjoy. Coral offer team specials for Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool. With the dominance of The Blues in The Premiership Coral are also offering odds on who will win the Premiership minus Chelsea. Chelsea are 2/5 to win the title again this season (06/07).

Relegation odds are perhaps more interesting to punters. With Southampton and Birmingham surprise drops into the Championship in recent seasons and the ability of the newly promoted teams to survive no mid-table club can feel safe. Watford, Sheffield United and Reading are favourites to go down, with Charlton and Wigan also in amongst the frontrunners to go down. Watch Bolton though, they still don't have a goalscorer, and if Big Sam moves on during the season, they may struggle.

The sack race is also a popular football market. Which Premiership manager will be sacked first? David O'Leary would have been favourite had he not already decided to leave Villa Park. Portsmouth could again provide the first victim - last year it was Alain Perrin, but this Harry Redknapp may find his job in jeopardy if Pompey start badly and at 14/1 offers a good return. Favourite to "leave their club next" is Neil Warnock with Sam Allardyce, Glenn Roeder 9/2 Stuart Pearce and Chris Coleman following.
