Odds Tumble On Newcastle United’s European Dream
In the lead up to Newcastle’s Europa League tie against FC Metalist, we suggested a sporting bet on United’s European progress.
You could (and should…) have taken the price of 33/1 on NUFC to win the competition.
Betting of course is all about the odds and we’re not saying Newcastle are a sure thing but they did represent great value.
Following success in the Ukraine, NUFC’s odds have tumbled but the good news is that you can still back Newcastle to win the Europa League at 22/1.
I’d recommend backing them each way, which would mean half your money would be on Newcastle just reaching the final which would pay half the odds at 11/1. To reach the final United need to win three more rounds, starting with Anzhi.
The bad news is that Anzhi are second favourites at 8/1 for the competition but the good news is that just like Metalist, when we play them they won’t have played a league match for three months, due to their winter break. On top of that they are in disarray behind the scenes with the unrest in their region meaning they will have to play their ‘home’ match against Newcastle in Moscow, over 1000 miles from their homeland.
Newcastle have a great opportunity to both go through and knock out one of the fancied teams, if we do then you can be sure the odds on Newcastle would really crumble.
Considering Spurs are only 9/1 (see all odds here) and have to overcome Inter Milan in the next round, Newcastle are great value at 22/1, especially if you aren’t already a customer of BetVictor and take advantage of their special offer of a £25 free matched bet.
