Today's Football Betting News:
The waiting is almost over as the football season is now just a few short days away with the League One campaign being kicked off on August 2nd whilst the Championship and League Two begin a day later.
Football fans will always find the summer a frustrating time but with league action returning quicker than ever then hopefully most have not gone too stir crazy.
In the week building up to the start of the football league there are a huge amount of qualifying contests for both the Champions League and the Europa League. There may be some pretty obscure teams involved at this stage but there are also some really big guns.
Amongst those competing for a place in the group stage of the Champions League are Lyon, Fenerbache, Zenit St Petersburg and of course Scottish champions Celtic who are taking on Elfsborg.
Whilst the Football League is just about to get underway the Premier League is still a few weeks off and the action that the biggest clubs in the country are busying themselves with is in the transfer market.
It has been an odd summer so far with not too many big signings although Manchester City have bucked that trend by bringing in Fernandinho, Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo. The transfer sagas surrounding Wayne Rooney, Luis Suarez, Gareth Bale and Cesc Fabregas all rumble on and there is still plenty of money going on whereabouts they will be playing their football come the start of September.
The betting on the outright winners in the biggest leagues around Europe has been seriously shaken up this summer by a number of changes in the managerial hot seats. Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City have all changed their bosses in England, both Barcelona and Real Madrid are sporting new men in charge and of course Pep Guardiola has taken over at Bayern Munich so there is plenty of debate going on at the moment as to how these leagues will pan out; even more than usual.
Football Betting News
Just prior to the new season starting is when the outright markets are at their most popular and potentially the most profitable. Of course this refers to promotions, relegations, play-off places and top scorers markets.
When it comes to the top goal scorer market there are some big names in the second level of English football and it is Blackburn’s Jordan Rhodes who has emerged as favourite to bag the most goals. The Scotland international is ahead of the likes of Reading’s Adam Le Fondre and Leicester City’s Chris Wood.
Similarly in League One it is a newly relegated team who are favourites to win the league and few would argue with the fact the Wolverhampton Wanderers have the best squad in the division, whilst it is their centre-forward Leigh Griffiths who is favourite to be top scorer.
The story is no different in League Two where beleaguered Portsmouth, relegated from League Two at the end of last season are expected to make a swift return. However, given their endless problems off the field they are not always the most reliable bet.
