We are now rapidly approaching the business end of the Premiership football season for gambling on football, with Manchester United still leading but with Arsenal breathing down their necks. The situation has now become even more interesting for the football gamblers amongst us with Arsenal knocked out of the Champions League and the FA Cup, leaving them with just one trophy to chase. Manchester United’s defeat against Liverpool has really opened up the league for the challengers, although most observers believe that Manchester City and Chelsea are still too far behind to be considered realistic challengers. There are however good odds to be had for those football gamblers who still believe there are four challengers, with Paddy Power offering 13/2 on Chelsea and 33/1 on Manchester City, who are of course still in the FA Cup and are therefore also chasing more than one trophy this season. Liverpool look too far behind even to make the Champions League this season, in spite of their recent improved results, but Tottenham are currently just 3 points behind Chelsea in fifth place and many football gamblers believe that they must be in with a chance of Champions league qualification if they can maintain a challenge on two fronts now that they have reached the quarter finals of the Champions league. It is possible of course that they could win the Champions league and qualify automatically for next season, although not many football gamblers would bet against Barcelona winning that particular football tournament this season, with their array of playing talent and the brand of football they are showing the football World. The FA Cup has also reached the semi final stage, and with Manchester City drawn against Manchester United in one semi final, football gamblers can take advantage of the fact that at least one of the less favoured teams will reach the final, and as we all know anything can happen in a one off game so gamblers on football should keep their eyes on the odds on offer.
