The Scottish Premier League is also sometimes referred to as the Premier League. The Scottish League system is composed of 4 other leagues which are the Third Division, Second Division, First Division and the Scottish Premier League. There are 12 clubs that compose the league and they all participate in a “split league format”. Meaning, every team gets to face all of the other teams thrice. This happens in either a single away game and a couple of home games or a couple of away games and a single home game. The entire division is then cut into half with the six bottom teams and the top six teams continue to battle 5 more games against the other teams that belong to the league’s half, making each team’s total number of matches to 38 games. A lot of people love participating in SPL betting because they have a huge selection of who to bet for. Apart from that, they can really enjoy watching a lot of matches too.
Points are being made on a win/draw/lose basis with zero points for a game lost, a point for a draw and 3 points granted for a win. The team’s position for the season’s first half and each half of the season’s second part is being determined by the points they make. The team who ranks number one in the Scottish First Division is immediately endorsed to the SPL while SPL’s bottom team is transferred or endorsed to the Scottish First Division. There are instances where there is no occurrence of promotions or endorsements due to criteria issues.
Placing bets in this kind of league can actually be made in 3 ways. The first one is through live or traditional betting, second is phoning in your bets (not all bookmakers offer this service) and the third one is by using online portals. Due to technological advancements, betting online is now very easy.
