BettingTips4you.com have analysed the recent football history and have come up with a brilliant infographic that show really well how upsets are a reality in modern football.
Modern football has shown once again that there are no big underdogs after witnessing one of the biggest miracles in England Premier League’s recent history. Even though the odds were heavily against Leicester City, they have managed to win one of the strongest football divisions in Europe and be remembered as legends. Many have described that title as “victory of football over rich owners”, mainly because Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City have spent huge amount of money in order to achieve that success. Can David(s) beat Goliat(s) somewhere this season as well? BettingTips4you are bringing you some of the odds for that to happen!
Pep Guardiola’s arrival to The Etihad is probably one of the main reasons why the bookmakers are offering 13/5 odds on Manchester City to win the league this year. Start of the new campaign has been great so far, as we see them and big rivals United sitting at the top of the table with three victories. The biggest underdog for this season are West Bromwich Albion with 1500/1 odds!
Many were surprised to hear that Rafael Benitez will remain on the position of Newcastle’s head manager after they got relegated. Sales of the season tickets went through the roof for this team, so we are expecting a very interesting season in The Championship. As expected, Newcastle United are the favorite number one to win the whole thing with 9/4 rate, one EUR placed on Burton Albion to win the league would return you 500!
When it comes to Serie A adventures this year, Crotone have won the second division in a spectacular fashion, making their first appearance in the elite league in history! However, the bookies are offering sky – high 5000 odds for this fairly unknown team to win Serie A! As expected, Juventus are big favorites to defend the title with 9/20 rate.
The most known club competition in the world, UEFA Champions League is bringing us a lot of interesting duels in the group stages. There were many upsets and great games in the qualifiers, with champions of Ireland Dundalk being one of them. This very small and charismatic squad was very close to reach the groups, but Legia Warszawa have claimed a narrow victory. The odds at that moment for Dundalk to win the whole thing were 2500/1! Barcelona were labeled as the favorite number one to take their biggest rivals Real Madrid from the throne. The odds for The Catalan giants to win UEFA Champions League are 13/5.
