Betting and Wagering on British Football (or “Soccer”, as it is known in North America) ranks at the very top of Football Betting volumes in the UK, Ireland and also across Continental Europe. Football Betting on the English Premier League means placing your sports bet with the finest bookmakers of England or Continental Europe on the clashes between not only the “Big 4″ Chelsea London, Manchester United, FC Liverpool or the Gunners from Arsenal London, but also on the 16 other teams competing for the title.
These 20 football teams are playing for the 2009/2010 English FA Premiership title:
Aston Villa – FC Chelsea – FC Arsenal – Birmingham City – FC Everton – Wolverhampton Wanderers – Manchester United – Bolton Wanderers – FC Portsmouth – Tottenham Hotspur – Stoke City – West Ham United – AFC Sunderland – FC Liverpool – Blackburn Rovers – FC Burnley – Wigan Athletic – Manchester City – FC Fulham – Hull City
Many internet bookmakers offer their registered football fans competitive odds on all the games. You can bet on the outright winner of any given match, meaning no handicaps are given to any team. Chelsea or ManU playing at home against the currently ranked number 20 team ? Well, the odds won`t be very high, but in any case, a 1:0 win will do just fine.
Should you look for a little more excitement, wager on the handicap win by the favourite, this means the (supposedly) inferior team will start the game with a 1-Goal headstart, so should the favourite win 2:1 for example, for betting purposes the official result for the sportsbooks would be a draw.
The second Football League in the UK is called the “Championship”, in which the following 24 teams are competing for the right to play in the Premiership again in the following year:
West Bromwich Albion – Nottingham Forest – Cardiff City – FC Blackpool – Coventry City – FC Barnsley – Crystal Palace – Bristol City – Derby County – Scunthorpe United – FC Middlesbrough – Swansea City – Preston North End – Doncaster Rovers – Queens Park Rangers – Plymouth Argyle – FC Reading – Newcastle United – Sheffield Wednesday – Peterborough United – FC Watford – Sheffield United – Leicester City – Ipswich Town
The British FA Premiership in it`s present form was only formed in 1992 and there are currently 20 teams playing for fame and fortune (and money). Although 15 seasons were played so far, amazingly only 4 different teams were able to win the title: Arsenal London, the Blackburn Rovers, Chelsea London and ManU. Manchester United ranks on top of these 4 with an impressive 10 wins. Their last Premier League title was achieved in the last season, the 2007 – 2008 title race.
