On the eve of the long awaited 2010 World Cup in South Africa bookmakers have finalised their odds and released their best offers and we choose the best value for punters wanting an extra edge to their World cup betting..
Two Offers released this week represent superb value for new customers and are unlikely to be repeated in the fututre . They are :
Ladbrokes bet £5 get £25 in FREE BETS
William Hill bet £10 get £30 in FREE BETS
Both these offers free bet promotions offer new customers a significant edge as the FREE BET amount is 500% and 300% more than the deposit required . Ladbrokes and Hills are not particuarly generous bookmakers normally so these Offers will not last past the World Cup .
Three other Offers are generous as follows :
Bet365 will refund losing stakes on the 2010 World Cup outright market if the team you have backed is eliminated on penalties . This has happened twice to England in the last three tournaments and on average happens to three teams in the final stages . Bet365 also offer new customers up to £200 in FREE BETS .
Stan James a UK based bookmaker are offering to refund stakes on the 2010 World Cup outright market if Spain win the tournament . Again pretty generous and back your selection with Stan James and you are basically cheering on two teams ! .
In England's opening game on Saturday against USA , Paddy Power the Irish bookmaker are offering to refund all correct score and first or last scorer bets if Wayne Rooney scores at any time during the match . Rooney is odds on with most bookmakers to score at some point during the game so this is basically more likely to happen than not .
At current odds in the outright market most of the value has gone with Holland , Spain and Argentina having all seen their odds cut this week .
England however at 8/1 with William Hill may be worth a patriotic punt as they should qualify as Group C winners and theoretically have a relatively straightforward section of the draw .
