Betting on the Premier League: Who will get into Europe?
The Champions league is considered by many to be the greatest football competition outside of the world and European cup, and for teams around Europe it is the pinnacle of competition. In order to get into the
Champions league in England you have to get into one of the top four spots, which is a extremely hard task on its own with the Premiership being such a competitive league. Even when you get up there, it is very hard to keep the spot as everyone else is trying to take it from you.
This season has shown this as pre-season favourites Manchester City failing to retain the title.
This season has been a great one so far and unfortunately it is coming to a close this Sunday, with this in mind you can now see who is odds on to get into Europe as the teams at the top of the table will likely beÃ‚Â in the spots without a little drama happening.
Manchester United (88 pts) and city rival Manchester City (78 pts) are in after they finished 1-2 in the league. Chelsea are currently in third place with 72 points and a goal difference of +35, making them
favourites with bookmakers. Arsenal trail in fourth place with 70 points and a goal difference of +34. Tottenham Hotspur sit in fifth with 69 points and a +19 goal difference. As a result of this there is not much between them in terms of odds.
The three London clubs will battle for the remaining 2 spots. How they each finish this Sunday is very important as the third-placed team advances straight into the ChampionsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ League group stage and the fourth has to play a qualifying round. The team finishing fifth heads for the much less lucrative but still prestigious UEFA Europa League. A competition Chelsea are all to familiar with after shocking bookmakers everywhere and ending up playing in the competition.
According to the league fixtures, Chelsea will host Everton, Arsenal will travel to Newcastle and Tottenham will play at home against Sunderland.
Millions of soccer fans in England and around the world will be glued to their TVs to find out the outcome of these encounters and an equal number will visit betting sites such as JackpotCity to try their luck.
