Who will be the champion of Russia?
Bet365 considers Zenit to be the favourite of the Premier League – its odds in the championship are 1.36. Spartak has a slightly less chance – 8.00. The remaining three teams from our top-5 odds are much higher – 8 at Krasnodar, 9.00 at CSKA, 26 at Rostov. There is one more club with odds of less than a hundred – Lokomotiv Moscow (34). If you want to be get rich thousands of times – try to believe in the odds of Yenisei, Ufa and Krylia Sovetov, just such odds (4501, 2501, 3001) are put up for the championship of the weakest Premier League teams.
Who will fly out of the Russian Premier League?
Betzest defines only five clubs that can fly out directly (that is, take 15th or 16th place) at the end of the season. Most of all the chances are for Yenisey. Further follows Ufa. The departure of Krylia Sovetov is estimated at 2307 and the failure of Ufa – 2907.
Betting on the Russian Premier League’s top scorer
Bookmakers believe that Artem Dzyuba (Zenit), Fedor Smolov (Lokomotiv) and Fedor Chalov (CSKA) have the greatest chances for this title. The next is the Brazilian Luiz Adriano from Spartak. It will be possible to increase your bank tenfold if Hernandez (CSKA), Sigurdarson (Rostov) or Driussi (Zenit) win the scorer race.
You can even bet on Roman Bikfalvi from Ural. Who really believes in Ferreira Ari from Krasnodar – there are good odds for him as well.
Features of bets on the Russian Football Championship
Speaking about the features of betting on the Russian Premier League, first of all, bets on “under” go well, so it is advisable to select strategies for this type of bet. On average, 2.25 goals per game were scored in the Russian Championship 2017/2018. This is confirmed by other statistics: the most popular score is 1: 0, which accounts for 25% of the matches of the previous season . Another 13% ended in a score of 0: 0. Statistics speak in favour of betting strategies on under 1.5 in the Russian Football Championship.
There are quite a few derbies and other principal matches in the Russian Premier Ligue, in which it is better not to bet on low odds. It is very difficult to predict such matches, there is a special motivation and unpredictable results. Therefore, it is better to find outcomes with high odds. And, of course, rejection odds are always in trend.
It is also important to note that the plague of the twenty-first century sports called match fixing does not bypass the party of the Russian Premier League. Sometimes there are very strange matches, the possible contractual nature of which is given by unreasonable strong changes in odds.
Types of bets on the Russian Premier League 2018/2019
Bookmakers allow you to bet on the outcomes of each match of the Russian Football Championship, bet on the statistics of matches, and also make long-term bets, which, with the right approach, can also be profitable.
Bets on the Winner of the RPL 2018/2019
The bookmakers see Zenith a favourite before the start of the season. Spartak is quoted slightly lower.
The third in the list of contenders for the gold medals of the Russian Football Championship 2018/19 is CSKA Moscow. But the current champion of the country Lokomotiv is only fourth in terms of chances.In our opinion, the champion will be Zenith. They did not win the league for a long time and have very good chances to return the cup to St. Petersburg. Moreover, unlike their competitors, Zenit will not participate in the Champions League and will be able to concentrate on the championship.
You do not have to bet on the winners, you can bet on future losers of the Russian league. At 1xbet markets are available on the direct departure of the teams. In other words, the bet that the club will occupy the 15th or 16th place in the standings:
- Krylia Sovetov
We recommend to refrain from bets on the departure from RPL and wait at least five rounds, and best of all – to make such bets after the winter break, which can change a lot.
