During the pre-season period, soccer fans all over the world are watching to see what their favourite teams do ahead of the new season starting.

New signings coming in can really boost a team’s chance of landing a league title and challenging at the top of the table and as such, this is the time of the year when fans start to think about what bets they want to place on team’s winning their respective division.

And now if you place bets on the outright winner market of certain specified leagues at bet365, then you may well get a little added insurance for your bet.

We know bet365 Sport is fantastic for football betting given the huge range of markets available for fixtures from league’s all over the world, but the site also has available some new promotional offers for customers to use this year.

Let’s take a look at one such offer in a bit more detail that links directly with bets on teams to win their respective league or division title.

Bet365 League Winner Early Payout Offer

One of the new promos is the exciting Bet365 League Winner Early Payout offer, which is available for single bets placed on the Outright Winner markets for a number of different football divisions across Europe.

In short, if you place a bet on a team to win one of the leagues covered by the offer, and they take a lead in the league title race of 10 points or more, then they will be paid out as winners of the league title, even if they then go on to lose the title race.

There have been numerous times a team has held an advantage of 10 points or more in a season and has gone on to lose the league title at the end of it.

And if you recall last season in the English Premier League, at one stage in January Manchester City had a 14-point lead, but only won the league title by a point on the final day of the season!

Let’s now take a look at the key terms and conditions for this offer at bet365.

Which Teams Should I Consider Backing To Win Their League Utilizing This Offer?

As you can see, there are 12 different divisions available for you to use this offer on and that includes all four professional divisions in England and Scotland, plus four of the main league title races in Europe, in Germany, Italy, France and Spain.

So, looking at the different league titles and how they currently stand, and taking into account what has happened with teams over the course of the current pre-season, plus how their main rivals have spent (or not) over the course of the same period, who are the teams that would represent a good value bet using the offer?

England: Premier League

Manchester City are odds on to retain their title for a third successive season at 4/7, with Liverpool at 2/1 and those two teams are the clear favourites, with Tottenham a 14/1 shot and Chelsea a 16/1 chance.

I can’t see any team opening up a 10 point gap over Liverpool or City, other than each other, so my advice here would be to back either Manchester City or Liverpool to get the value with this bet as it is likely that these are the only two teams capable of opening up a large gap, and conversely being able to close the gap should the other team slip up.

Spain: Primera Liga

Rather like in the Premier League in England, I can only see two teams being in with a chance of the La Liga title next year, Real Madrid (11/10) and Barcelona (11/8), although you could possibly make a case for Atletico Madrid (11/2) to be involved, although I do feel that is unlikely.

With Xavi now the manager at Barcelona, I expect them to be on par with the La Liga and Champions League winners Real Madrid next year, so I think a bet on either of these two teams would be a solid option for this offer.

Italy: Serie A

AC Milan (9/4) were the surprise winners of Serie A last year, but I feel they may struggle to hang on to their title next season given the progress that Inter Milan (15/8) have made in the transfer market and I also feel Juventus (2/1) will also be much more in the frame this year after a terrible start last season scuppered any chances they had of challenging for the title.

If any team is going to open up a big lead in Serie A next year, I think that team will be Inter Milan and at 15/8, I think they are a solid bet to back here, but if you fancy a different option, Juventus would be my pick.

Other Options

If you want to get your hands on winnings quicker then there are a number of options you can consider, although all are very lengthy odds on favourites to win the league title in their respective division, so any payout would generally be smaller.

Paris St Germain are 1/10 to win the league in France and if Ligue 1 follows the format of many of the last few years, PSG will have a 10 point+ lead usually by December, if not even sooner and certainly no later by early 2023. They are the dominant force in French football and I can’t see any team being anywhere near to challenge them for the title.

Similarly, in Germany, Bayern Munich are 1/5 to land yet another Bundesliga and given that Dortmund have lost a key player in Haaland and other teams are still well off the quality Bayern have, even if they lose Lewandowski, the Bavarian side should still comfortably win the Bundesliga this year and I’d expect them to have a 10 point or greater lead early in 2023.
