You might think that Welsh football ends with teams like Swansea and Cardiff who play their football in the English league system but that is not the case. Football in Wales is nowhere near as big as in England or Scotland but there are a number of teams who compete every week in the Welsh league pyramid.
The tournament at the very top of Welsh football is the Welsh Premier League. Both professional and semi-professional clubs make up the 12 teams in the top flight of Welsh football. The league format is a lot like that employed in Scotland given the small number of teams. Each of the 12 teams plays one another at home and away before the top and bottom six sides are split up. When looking at the Welsh Premier League odds at any point of the season you have to remember that only the teams in the top half of the split can lift the trophy.
The New Saints are the most successful side in Welsh Premier League history with 10 league wins and with each win they have been placed into the first qualifying round of the Champions League. There is also a place in Europa League qualifying for the team who finish as runners up and the side who lift the Welsh Cup. The teams from 3rd to 6th have their own playoffs to see who else gets a spot in Europa League qualifying.
Once the split occurs the teams in the bottom six only have one goal, to avoid the bottom two and relegation into Welsh Division One. Welsh League betting with the biggest bookies covers both ends of the table but, understandably, much of the attention is given to the teams at the top.
Welsh outright markets give you a chance to use your knowledge but there is also options to bet on individual matches. Welsh League betting is never going to challenge the major European leagues but it is well worth keeping an eye out to see if any opportunities to grab some betting value present themselves.
