Long odds on Arsenal bringing home the Champions League

February 27, 2013

Football is a strange game. Some Arsenal fans might be at least considering placing a long shot bet on the club overcoming Bayern Munich in the final leg of the Second Round. There are pretty long odds on them achieving this feat though, with the Gunners currently rated around 11/5 to beat Bayern, furthermore they are priced at 33/1 to win the Champions League on many football betting sites. Most would agree that both are almost unfeasible this season, especially given the currently porous defence and the difficulty of winning away in Europe.

Of the two options, Gunners fans would be better off betting on them beating Bayern than winning the trophy. The German side are favourites and carry an impressive lead into the second leg, but for this tie Arsenal at least represent an interesting outside bet.

The odds on Arsenal achieving Champions League football for next season are even more interesting though. Arsenal face Tottenham next in the league and though Tottenham sit in third place, two above Arsenal, the game is relatively evenly matched. If Arsenal can overcome Spurs and then Everton they’d greatly increase their chances of making it to fourth or even third place and securing that qualification spot.

Betting on the Tottenham game sees odds of 21/10 for an Arsenal win and 13/10 for Tottenham, clearly the home advantage and improved position favour Spurs, but this doesn’t mean that a win is out of the question. Only time will tell whether Wenger can inspire his side to success, if this happens it would have a greater impact than simply ensuring a higher league finish.

Of course it is the ability to combine football and betting that makes sports betting seem attractive, but an online casino site like http://www.jackpotcity.co.uk/online-slots/ offers football-themed slots like Soccer Safari which allow supporters to enjoy both activities without the love of one affecting their judgement of the other. The slots games also offer a better chance of winning a pay-out than you would get betting on Arsenal for the Champions League. At Jackpot City you will also be able to enjoy a variety of other casino games like blackjack, poker and roulette.

    The cl is as good as gone. BM with a 2 goal cushion are unlikely to self destruct unlike Arsenal. The gunners defence isbas porous as ever and if Bale is not markd he would score a hattrick,unplayable to Wenger who if I aint wrong will have no special plan to mark the Welshman.

    Now we read reports of Arsenal going to break their wage record and so on. Could it be a question of it it being too late?I fear the gunners could join Liverpool in the cl wilderness especially if they can’t get 4th. I don’t share Wenger’s otimism the gunners can finish 2nd.
    Too many broken promises have fuelled my doubts and if Spurs win,it could be the writing on the wall. The warning signs were not heeded and this time the truth will be driven home: the gunners aint good enough.
