As the main football season is about to start in the UK, there is a very good chance you are currently trying to make sense of the range of betting opportunities that await you this weekend, and if so then allow be to give you a few pointers as to where the smart money is going on several matches this weekend!
One match that is actually scheduled to start on Friday night is the match between Reading and Derby County, and as far as the outcome in that match that punters are backing, it is a Derby County win as the odds on them winning have just dropped down to odds of 29/20 due to the volume of cash being wagered on them!
As for matches that are being played on Saturday the 4th of August go, well there are way too many of them for me to list here, and not all of them are as easy to pick out the winner of as other matches may just be!
Take for example the very first match of the day on Saturday, that being the Sunderland v Charlton Athletic match, it is hard to look at any other outcome of that match than a win for the home team and you will be best advised to place your bets at Betfred if you do fancy the chances of Sunderland for they are currently offering odds of a generous 21/20!
Teams that are Odds-On Certainties to Win
When you do want to try and achieve some much higher valued winning payouts when betting on football matches, it can and often does pay dividends for you to perm together two teams playing in different matches and have them in a double bet.
Therefore one bet that you should consider placing on teams that do have an odds-on certainty of winning are Accrington Stanley who odds are 19/10 in their match against Gillingham and also Barnsley at 10/11 in their home match against Oxford United.
Outsiders That Could Win
It is often right at the start of the football season in the UK, that some football teams that didn’t play too well last season suddenly find their very best form, and do start to defy their win odds and win match after match.
With that in mind allow me to now give you some ideas as to the matches in which one team doesn’t look likely to be the winner and as such does have some slightly higher odds on offer on them winning, but those teams listed below could just defy their odds and win.
Take for example the away team in the Brentford v Rotherham United match, they are expected to lose that match as many betting site have Rotherham United listed at odds of 11/2, but if everything does fall their way in that match they may just come out on top and win it!
Another match that could just go the way of the outsider is in the Burton Albion v Rochdale, it is the Rochdale team that are listed as the outsider and underdog to win that match but win it they just might do at some quite appealing and attractive odds of 13/5!
