The return of domestic football is edging closer and many punters will be preparing a range of ante post bets ahead of the new season.
One of the most popular offers is set to be bet365’s Early League Winner payout offer, which sees bettors paid out in full if a team they back to win their respective league title is 10 points clear at any stage – regardless of whether they go on to actually win the division.
Applies to bets on the To Win Outright market on selected leagues up to and including September 13 2019. Bet restrictions and T&Cs apply. New and eligible customers only.
Four teams in divisions eligible for the promotion achieved this last season – Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Barcelona and Celtic – and backing the quartet in an accumulator pays out at around 29/10 (3.90).
Stunningly, PSG moved 10 points clear of second-placed Lille after only 12 Ligue 1 games last term, beating them 2-1 on November 2 to maintain their 100 per cent record.
Thomas Tuchel’s men are currently just 1/7 (1.14) to win their seventh top-flight title in the last eight years, and even with Neymar’s future up in the air, they are likely to prove far too good for the rest of the French top division.
Juventus, too, cantered to victory in Serie A and would have been eligible for bet365’s offer on January 27 when they beat Lazio 2-1. That result moved them 11 points clear of Napoli, who could only draw 0-0 at AC Milan.
It is 8/15 (1.53) that the Old Lady continue their dominance of Italian football with a ninth consecutive title.
With Real Madrid having sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Juve last summer, it always seemed a sure thing that Barcelona would win La Liga again and they duly obliged with an 87-point haul eclipsing Atletico Madrid’s 76.
They reached the magical 10-point mark on March 17 with a sumptuous 4-1 win at Real Betis and actually look good value at 4/6 (1.67) to repeat the feat this season.
March 17 was also the day that Celtic managed to shake off a defiant Rangers side to move 10 points clear an all but wrap up another Scottish Premier League title. Backing them to win their ninth straight top-flight crown is a 1/3 (1.33) shot with bet365.
