The Polish Ekstraklasa is back after its Covid-19 hiatus, and thanks to a new series of broadcasting deals across Europe bettors in the UK and beyond will be able to watch the rest of the season for free on their television!
Legia Warsaw are looking to complete what would be their sixth title win in the last eight seasons, but they face an exciting run-in to the campaign with the defending champions – Piast Gliwice – chasing them hard.
The race for the top three positions is red hot too, while the relegation dogfight features a number of teams all hoping to avoid the dreaded drop.
The Polish Ekstraklasa is shaping up for a fascinating conclusion then, and you can be a part of it too.
Read on to see all of our Ekstraklasa predictions and let’s find out if there’s any betting value to take advantage of.
1. Ekstraklasa Betting Odds
Given that they have a comfortable lead at the top of the Ekstraklasa table, it’s no surprise to see that Legia are the hot favourites to lift the trophy.
That means they lead the way in the Polish Ekstraklasa betting odds, with Piast Gliwice, Cracovia and Lech Poznan snapping at their heels.
The bookmakers also have their top three finish PKO Ekstraklasa odds, and while you can’t find a price on Legia here you will be able to bet on the other big hitters at some generous odds.
Finally, you can also bet on relegation in the Polish league odds. The likes of LKS Lodz, Arka Gdynia and Korona Kielce are the favourites with the bookies here.
2. Ekstraklasa Betting Tips
All of the leading bookmakers offer Ekstraklasa league betting odds, so you can easily get your bets on no matter who you believe in.
Legia are expected to get their hands on the trophy they lost to Piast Gliwice in 2019, but one thing to note is that they must play three of their last four matches away from home – they average 1.66 per game on the road, which suggests there may be opportunities for them to be usurped.
The top three finish betting market is particularly interesting given how close the Polish Ekstraklasa standings are, with as many as ten teams in contention for that.
One of the interesting things to look at in any league table is the goal difference column, which offers an insight into how dominant teams are. As you may have guessed, Legia lead the way here but close on their heels are Lech Poznan, and their quality should lead them to a top three finish – that is the pick of our Poland Ekstraklasa predictions.
To get out of relegation trouble, you need to win games, and that is one thing that LKS Lodz haven’t been doing – tasting victory in less than 20% of their matches. And that means they have to be expected to be relegated this term, so that is the last of our Ekstraklasa betting tips.
3. Ekstraklasa Live Stream
We know that many bettors like to watch their selections in action where possible, and the great news is that many of you will be able to enjoy an Ekstraklasa live stream where you are.
In the UK, the Ekstraklasa TV option comes from a new deal signed by the Polish League with FreeSports, which is a free-to-air channel for everyone with a digital television set. So you can enjoy the action for free at home!
Also, another option for an Ekstraklasa stream online is via the bookies. The leading bookmakers like Bet365 and Unibet have their own live streaming channels, and from the end of May onwards you can watch the Polish action via your account on your computer, phone or tablet.
