The strength of a league is a major factor that determines whether betting stakeholders are going to put their money in it. Bookmakers want to be sure they are putting their money in a clean competitions, while punters betting on football are not really amused by leagues that boast ‘fixed odds.
The Kenyan Premier League can thus be said to have taken huge strides seeing as it is a regular on most bookmakers odds. Games from the league are featured on sites operating both within and outside the country.
The Kenyan top flight has grown so much that it is not easy to come up with a Kenya Premier League prediction nowadays. Neither is it easy to give Kenya premier league tips without doing a detailed analysis. Gone are the days when Kenya premier league news was all about Gor Mahia and AFC leopards.
A look at the Kenya premier League results will show that teams like Sofapaka, Bandari and Tusker are now queuing for the cream of the cake. New entrants like Kariobangi Sharks, Zoo Kericho and Vihiga United have also been known to spring surprise in Kenya Premier League fixtures that would usually be concluded before kick-off.
Popular gambling practice
Betting on football still remains the most popular practice among punters in Kenya. The entrance of sponsors into the league is only making the league stronger. It makes sense, thus, for wise punters to verse themselves with the trends happening in Kenyan football.
One aspect to look at in a growing football country like Kenya when placing bets is the stability of a club. Gor Mahia, for instance, has a stable hierarchy and its little wonder that they have won the title so often in recent years. They have a rigorous process of picking coaches and they at least let their gaffers last a season or two. The club also has a running recruitment policy, trading with the giants in the region. Therefore, even with a low odd, Gor Mahia is almost sure Kenya Premier league bet any day.
AFC Leopards, albeit a giant in its day, has had turbulent times in the last few years. From shaky recruitment policies to cash problems and internal wrangles, it is always a gamble- literally – for them. Sofapaka are also an on and off team, as are Tusker FC. With these, the trick is to place single bets based on current form.
New clubs in the division are always exciting prospects. Kariobangi Sharks, for instance have a knack for felling the big teams. These teams have great odds in Kenya premier League fixtures and can fetch good money.
