Betting on Newcastle United

When it comes to Newcastle United in the upcoming season, most of the football betting interest will revolve around whether they can qualify for the Europa League, or whether they will find themselves struggling in the relegation zone again.

Realistically few will be gambling on the Magpies to make the Champions League (although some of the less realistic supporters might be), so these are the two main issues. The bookies have already made early pre-season odds information available, so do they see Newcastle making Europe or dodging the drop zone?

Well just now you can get odds of around 10 or 12/1 on the Magpies to be relegated in the upcoming season – although some of the bookmakers are going as low as 8/1 on this. It certainly doesn’t put them amongst the hot favourites to go down, but nor does it mark them down as a real outsider bet for this – and some football betting punters might consider putting bets on this.

On the other hand, you can also get odds of around 9/1 to finish in the top six – suggesting that the bookmakers are hedging their bets a bit about the team’s prospects this season. What this means is that the smart bet might be to wait and see how they start the new season before putting money down, as there are always online casino sites with football themed slots games to occupy you just now – there’s something for everyone in an online casino, whether you are an online roulette fan or a football enthusiast.

Game On is one of these football slots games, and it has been enthusiastically embraced by lovers of the beautiful game, thanks to the quirky premise of animal footballers in an alternative World Cup tournament, and the fine graphics and sound effects used to bring it all to life. Of course this is not at the expense of traditional slots features, as Game On boasts a $10,000 jackpot, as well as very simple, cheap game play, making it a perfect example of the sort of sports based casino games that are drawing more sporting fans to try out online and mobile casino sites alongside sports betting ones.
