Both Teams To Score Tips

Top-10 Market Movers

Betting-Directory will be providing an in-depth analysis of the Top-10 'Market Movers' from the world of football every Monday. We will be reviewing the previous week's football action to see who are the movers and shakers in the latest betting markets...

Top Ten Market Movers

Premier League Odds

Manchester City won the Premier League title last season as they wrestled back their crown from local rivals Man United. City, City are amongst the favourites to win it in 2014/15, with United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal the best of the rest..

As well as betting on who will win the Premier League, you can also bet on who will be relegated. Cardiff, Fulham and Norwich all dropped out of the division last season and it will be tight again in the betting at the bottom.

With Champions League football so very important, the likes of Spurs, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are likely to be battling it out for a top four finish again. Outside chance Everton will also fancy their chances of nicking that all important fourth place. Will they be the new team to break into the top four in the 2014/15 season?

As well as betting on the results, you can also bet on who will be the top goalscorer of the 2014/15 season, with the likes of Luis Suarez, Sergio Aguero and Robin Van Persie all in the mix at the head of the market.

Champions League Betting

The Champions League is the premier European competition and Real Madrid are reigning champions after they beat their Spanish compatriots Atletico Madrid in the final in Portugal last season.

Check the latest odds on the 2014/15 Champions League.

We also have a dedicated Champions League mini-site, regularly updated with the latest betting news, form, tips and the all important odds.

Europa League Betting

The Europa League is the name of the old UEFA Cup and takes up a similar format to the Champions League. Sevilla beat Benfica on penalties in the final in Turin last season but the betting is likely to be tight for the 2014/15 competition.

Check the latest odds for the 2014/15 Europa League.

Domestic Football Betting

As well as the Premier League, we have the outright odds available on the other three professional divisions in England, plus both cup competitions.

The Championship is always a keenly contested division and the betting is hugely popular, with many games televised throughout the season. Fulham, Cardiff and Norwich are all well fancied in the betting after being relegated from the Premiership.

The betting is tight for promotion from League One title and Leyton Orient will hope to make it after narrowly losing out in the play-offs last season. The likes of Sheffield United, Yeovil, and Peterborough are all in the mix.

League Two boasts a host of new teams and Portsmouth are amongst the favourites for the title with bookmakers, although Shrewsbury and Stevenage will hope to bounce straight back up.

The FA Cup is the world's most famous domestic cup competition and was won in 2014 by Arsenal as they beat Hull 3-2 after extra-time in the final at Wembley.

The Capital One Cup, also known as the League Cup, is played alongside the FA Cup and league competitions, with Man City beating Sunderland 3-1 in the 2014 final at Wembley.

Championship | League One | League Two | FA Cup | Capital One Cup

European Football League Odds

The SPL is usually a two-horse race but with Rangers being demoted it is their bitter rivals Celtic who are massive odds on favourites for the title. It is up to the other clubs to challenge the defending champions and close the gap at the top in 2014/15.

Satellite television enables us to keep a close eye on La Liga with at least two matches screened live every weekend. Atletico Madrid were surprise winners last season but the betting is sure to be tight for the 2014/15 Spanish title as Real Madrid and Barcelona bid to mount a challenge.

Juventus won the Serie A title last season as they cruised to the title. Juventus, alongside the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan and Roma, are likely to be fighting it out at the head of the betting for the 2014/15 season.

SPL | La Liga | Serie A

2018 World Cup Odds

Check our dedicated World Cup mini-site for all the latest betting news, tips, results and odds.

The 2018 World Cup takes place in Russia.

Check the latest 2018 World Cup Odds.

2016 European Championships

Spain won a third major tournament with victory in the 2012 European Championships and they are amongst the favourites for Euro 2016.

As well as keeping you up to date with the latest major tournaments involving European nations, we will also have odds on other International competitions, including the African Cup of Nations, Copa America, the Confederations Cup and Under 21 European Championship.

Football Specials Betting

There are lots of different football specials markets to bet on these days, with manager related markets often the most popular. As soon as any sackings or resignations are made, we'll be the first up with odds for new manager jobs.

Check the latest odds on who will be the next manager to go.
