X-Mas check: Table Leaders and Odds on future Champions

Christmas is just around the corner and in many European top leagues half of the season has already been played. Now, some of them, like the German Bundesliga, will take a break and will start again at the end of January. In contradiction to that, the Premier League will not have a break. Nevertheless, the question is: Who has the best chances for becoming the champion and are there any surprises in the current rankings? We show you the current standings and the best odds for the champions 2014/2015.

At the German Bundesliga, there is one team that seems to be far better than the rest of the league. Bayern Munich – champion of the last 2 years, once again are in the lead with 11 points before league runners up – VfL Wolfsburg. There is almost no bookie left with odds for a championship tip on Bayern. Another possibility though is a bet on “who will reach the top-4”. Therefore you could choose a tip on the current 4th of the league, Borussia M’Gladbach, for very nice 2,50 odds at Bet365. If you believe in a resurrection of Borussia Dortmund – currently 16th of the league, find very high 10,00 odds at Bet365, if they make it into the top-4 at the end of the league.

The fight for the Premier League title is a bit more balanced; there we have 2 teams fighting a duel. The current number one is Chelsea London with solid 1,50 odds at BetVictor. Their biggest opponent at the moment is last years champion Manchester City on the second position of the league. Bet365 offers very nice 3,50 odds for a bet on Man City to become champion again. Despite this opportunity, we could place a bet on “best of the rest”. Who will be the first team behind City and the Blues? We believe that Arsenal, the current 6th of the league, has good chances to do so. If you place a bet on the Gunners Betway gives you a tempting 3,60 odd.

In “La Liga” there is the old battle between Real Madrid and the FC Barcelona for the title at the Primera Division. Champions League winner Real stand on top of the table with one game less played but with a 1 point gap in front of Barcelona and 4 points before Atletico Madrid on the 3rd position. The “White ballet” is the odds favorite with a solid 1,33 odd at Bet365. The same bookie offers much higher odds for a tip on Barcelona to become the new champions with 3,50 odds. If those teams will have some troubles in the next months, Atletico Madrid could once again jump on the top of the table and get the second championship in a row. Bet on Atletico Madrid and find sensational odds of 34,0 at BetVictor.

Juventus Turin are once again the leader at the Italian Serie A. The champions of the last 3 years are also the odds-favorites for winning the “Scudetto” again with 1,40 odds at Mybet. Their biggest rival this season is the AS Rom with 3 points less collected than the “Vecchia signora”. Place a bet on AS Rom winning the Serie A with 10 Euro at Bwin and win 35 Euros in total. A higher risk bet, would be a tip on SSC Napoli, they have a strong squad and a fine manager and made it into the top-3 in the last 2 years at the Serie A. Place 10 Euros at Bwin on the sensation – Napoli Serie A champions 2014/2015 and you get awesome 340 Euros.

At the French Ligue 1 we have 3 teams fighting for the pole position of the league. Despite their recent dominance, PSG are only at the 3rd position at the moment. Marseille are first in the ranking, 2 points in front of Lyon and 3 points before Paris Saint-Germain. Nevertheless Laurant Blanc’s team is the clear favorite for winning the title again. The odds on PSG are not that awesome but you’ll still find 1,33 odds at Bet365 for PSG. Betting on the current number one –Marseille– could possibly be a more profitable tip. If they make it to stay number on until the season finishes, find juicy 5,71 odds at Bet3000. Lyon, the league runners up, could also become an interesting choice for a championship-bet. With 10 Euro stake you could get 119 Euro profit at Bet3000.

Nearly the half of the season has been played at most of the European top-leagues and in many cases there are still close battles for the league victory. And you don’t have to risk too much to find some good odds in some of these leagues, though it is hard to guess who will make it in the end. With a bet on a possible champion, you could increase your excitement in the next few months until the season finals are played.
