Real Madrid is very likely to crush Schalke 04 in the Champions League and both punters and bookies know this all too well. The latter have tweaked the odds in such a way, that punters can’t extract too much value by backing the favorites to prevail on the road. This poses the unique challenge of finding ways of boosting the odds and the obvious solution would be to bet on the visitors to cover the spread.
If you don’t have an account with Betfair yet and plan on opening one in the foreseeable future, usually act now and take advantage of a special promotion. All new customers will benefit from boosted odds of 3/1 on Real Madrid to beat Schalke, which is twice as much as if they were to bet on the Spanish side to win outright. This greatly simplifies the mission of those who expect the visitors to prevail, but don’t like the idea of trusting them to win by a narrow margin.
Elsewhere, Ladbrokes makes a similar proposition, with the only difference being that they don’t limit this promotion to prospective customers. If you already have an account with this bookmaker and are confident that Real Madrid will win and has high expectations from Porto and Middlesbrough, there is an offer dedicated to you. Bet on all these three teams to win and you will enjoy odds of 7/1, a slight increase from the regular value of 6/1.
