By using one the great Matched Betting systems available online you can start gambling on various sporting events risk free. With this knowledge what is there to stop you from having a punt on the new football season? Before Christmas, there is always hope for any one of the top teams in any of the major leagues around the world, but often the smart money is placed on teams that you would not expect to win, but just might have a chance this season. There has been the odd surprise winner of one of the big leagues in the last few years (Valencia 2003-2004 La Liga, Spain for example) so you never know. Here are some of the best bets for a surprise winner this season.
English Premier League
With a billionaire owner supporting a massive influx of huge name signings last season and this season and with a top manager in place, Man City could really win it this season. The Premiership has been dominated by Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal for quite some time now, but they can’t keep winning it forever. If anyone has a chance to upset the big three, its Manchester City.
While it may not be one of the top leagues in the world, it is certainly one of the most highly competitive. With so many teams who have a very realistic chance of winning this year, the odds will be with you no matter who you pick. Having reached the FA Cup Final and coming close to Premiership promotion a couple of times recently Cardiff City could be a great outside bet this season. Especially as they have signed Man City striker Craig Bellamy for the season who should score a heap of goals.
Now Roma have not won the Serie A since 2001, but they have been pretty close over the last few years, finishing runner up in 2008 and 2010. While most of the money will go on Inter, Milan, Juventus and maybe Fiorentina, the smart money will be on Roma; with the recent departure of many of the big stars from Milan and Juventus and with Inter losing their world beating manager. The time may be just right for Roma to sneak up from behind and take the top spot.
