Long odds on Arsenal bringing home the Champions League
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.
