The Last Chance To Place Your Bets On the Premier League

Its February now, and there isn’t long left for the 2013 Premier League. There have been more ups and downs than a kangaroo in a room made of trampolines, and now that the transfer season is over we can expect to see a lot of changes in some of the playing teams. But could it be too little too late for some of the competitors?

As expected, Manchester United are looking the most likely to win the whole thing, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t competition. At the time of writing, the premier league table is looking like this.

1 Manchester United 25 20 2 3 60 31 29 62
2 Manchester City 25 15 8 2 47 21 26 53
3 Chelsea 25 13 7 5 51 27 24 46
4 Tottenham Hotspur 25 13 6 6 42 29 13 45
5 Everton 25 10 12 3 40 30 10 42
6 Arsenal 25 11 8 6 49 29 20 41
7 Liverpool 25 9 9 7 44 32 12 36
8 Swansea City 25 8 10 7 34 28 6 34
9 West Bromwich Albion 25 10 4 11 34 35 -1 34
10 Stoke City 25 6 12 7 24 30 -6 30
11 West Ham United 25 8 6 11 28 36 -8 30
12 Sunderland 25 7 8 10 28 33 -5 29
13 Fulham 25 7 7 11 36 42 -6 28
14 Norwich City 25 6 10 9 25 40 -15 28
15 Newcastle United 25 7 6 12 33 44 -11 27
16 Southampton 25 5 9 11 33 44 -11 24
17 Reading 25 5 8 12 32 46 -14 23
18 Wigan Athletic 25 5 6 14 29 47 -18 21
19 Aston Villa 25 4 9 12 23 49 -26 21
20 Queens Park Rangers 25 2 11 12 18 37 -19 17

As you can see, there are only 9 point between Manchester United and their primary competition (and the title defenders), Manchester City, and there’s still plenty of chances for last year’s winner to catch up and take over.

But most importantly, there is still time for you to place any important bets which could win you a decent sum of money. Plenty of online bookmakers are still hosting bets, and will now have updated the odds to fairly match the chances of occurrence. Places like William Hill, Paddy Power and Bet365 are letting you bet on the outright winner, top goal-scorer, and possible relegations.

The Miracle Of Betfair’s Cash Out

Betting can be a really tense hobby. There are some bets where the odds practically guarantee you a win, other times; you may be on the edge of your seat not knowing which way the match might swing. Wouldn’t be a lot less stressful if you could just call in your bet early, and take your winnings before the match is over?

Well, Betfair has a brand new service called ‘Cash Out’ where you can do exactly that. No more waiting until the last minute of the match to see if you’ve won your bet, and no more last minute goals, turning your once wining bet into a loser.

How To Use Cash Out

Cash Out is exactly what I like, nice and simple to use, and even easier to explain. When you go to bet on a match, you’ll want to keep an eye out for the Cash Out symbol, which is a little yellow box and with a circle in it, you can’t miss it really.

Once you’re sure that the game you’re betting on uses the Cash Out feature, you can go ahead and place whatever bet you like, and you’ll be shown the amount that you’re due to win. When the match starts, this price will rise or fall depending on how well your team is doing, and you can choose to cash out at any time.

When you cash out, you’ll receive the amount shown on your screen at the time. If your team is looking like they’ll win, then you’re likely to get a price closer to the winning amount. On the other hand, if your team is losing, then you’ll receive less than your original bet.

The biggest benefit of this new feature is security. Your team might be doing better, but they’re yet to score a goal. By using Cash Out, you can avoid a nasty draw and still claim some winnings, and also knock off a lot of the stress associated with close games. You can also cut your losses using Cash Out, if your team starts failing miserably, you can cash out to claim as much money back before the inevitable loss.

Less Panic, More Profit

Needless to say, Cash Out could be your saving grace during the middle of an abysmal match, or might even stop you biting your fingernails when a draw looks unavoidable. You can also use this feature from your mobile, so even when you’re out and about, you can call a bet in early.

Before you can use this amazing feature, you’ll have to sign up with Betfair. Once you have an account, you can use Cash Out on any game that allows it, and save yourself unfathomable amounts of money.
