English Football in Race Against Time With Numerous Betting Markets Still to be Decided

2019-20 Premier League Bets

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic ensuring that the country will still be under lockdown for around another three weeks at least, the window for a return to domestic football action is becoming ever narrower.

There are still 92 fixtures remaining in the Premier League, with clubs having recently debated “possible scheduling models” in a bid to complete the remaining matches once given the all clear.

The Premier League has been suspended since 13th March because of the coronavirus and it was believed that clubs were aiming at a 30th June deadline to end the season. It’s now thought that Premier League clubs have discussed resuming the season on the weekend of 13th-14th June, with the aim of finishing the campaign by 31st July. 

The likelihood is that the initial matches at least would have to be played behind closed doors, particularly given what has happened previously having potentially triggered the spread of Covid-19.

The vast majority of reputable online bookmakers have suspended betting markets on the English leagues, which is understandable given the uncertainty as to when or even whether they will restart the current campaign and, should they do so, whether or not all the remaining fixtures are played.

When and if the English domestic campaign restarts, check out these bookmakers in the uk brought to you by thebookiesoffers.co.uk. It is a boutique site for selective football bettors. It helps you learn about betting offers and promotions which are hand-picked for the remainder of the season and beyond. 

Despite a dip in form just prior to the enforced break, Liverpool have long been the champions-elect in the Premier League. However, there is still plenty to play for elsewhere in the top-flight, with the race for a top four Champions League finish and a UEFA Cup place still very much up for grabs.

The Premier League relegation battle is still wide open too. Norwich City are bottom of the table and favourites for the drop as things stand, but their fate is far from certain. This is a betting market with plenty of twists and turns still to come.

The battle for promotion from the Championship is another closely fought affair, although Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion have a small cushion at present that sees them installed as the bookmakers favourites for the two automatic promotion places. 

There’s also still automatic promotion places up for grabs in Leagues One and Two and then there’s play-off and relegation betting to consider in the Championship and elsewhere.

The Scottish lower leagues have already thrown in the towel with regards to this season, while the Scottish Premiership has yet to decide whether they will do likewise. As in England, the title race in Scotland is effectively over, but there’s still an active betting odds market on relegation should the league restart.

BetVictor Champions League Bonus Offer

Terms and Conditions

What you need to do 

  1. Opt-In to this promotion.
  2. Place your first bet of £5 or more at odds of evens (2.00) or greater.
  3. You must do this within 7 days of registering an account.

What you get 

On placement of your qualifying bet:

£10 Free Bet – Any Sport or Virtual Sports Single Bet (odds 2.0 or greater);

£10 Free Bet – Any Sports or Virtual Sports Acca (3+ selections).

All of which:

  • can be used on any markets unless stated in the restrictions;
  • can be used as one whole bet or as a number of smaller bets;
  • will only return profit exceeding your total stake;
  • must be placed separately from real cash bets; and
  • will expire 7 days after accreditation if not used.

And, a £10 Casino Bonus, which:

  • can be used on any of our games on our Casino except for Baccarat (all versions);
  • are subject to wagering requirements (see Wagering Requirements below); and
  • will expire after 7 days if not used or wagered.

Wagering Requirements 

Sports – There are no wagering requirements.

Casino – You need to wager the bonus amount 35 times before you can withdraw any winnings (i.e. £10 x 35 = £350 of wagering).

For example, if you bet £10 and win £15, then bet £10 again and win £10, you have wagered £20 (£10 bet + £10 bet) but you have won £25 (£15 + £10).

So if you need to wager a total of £350, whatever you have left in your bonus balance after you have completed the wagering will turn into real cash and can be withdrawn.

Please note that for some types of games, the percentage contribution towards the amount you have to wager may be different, as follows:

  • Slots / Scratchcards / Numbers Games -100% (£10 bet = £10 wagered);
  • Roulette / Table Games / Video Poker – 20% (£10 bet = £2 wagered);
  • Blackjack / Craps – 10% (£10 bet = £1 wagered);
  • Baccarat (all versions) – 0% (£10 bet = 0 wagered).

If you have more than one casino bonus, any wagering must be completed one offer at a time and will begin with the first offer awarded. Once this is completed, wagering on the next bonus can be triggered.
