Sportsbet's Correct Score Special on Man City v Real Madrid
July 22, 2015
The last International Champions Cup match in Australia will be played on Friday night when Spanish giants Real Madrid take on mega money Manchester City at the MCG. Punters hoping to win big cash on the contest can place a correct score wager with Sportsbet and could be entitled to their money back even if their bet is unsuccessful. Sportsbet members can select a score and if it’s only wrong by one goal they’ll get their stake back, up to $100. For example if you back Real Madrid to win 3-0 and they win 2-0 you won’t lose your dough. Only a Sportsbet clients’ first bet on the market is eligible for a refund though.
Despite drawing with Roma and eventually losing in a penalty shootout in the opening match, Real Madrid are still favourites to beat Man City. Los Blancos are approximately $1.80 while their opponents (who also drew with Roma, before triumphing in spot kicks) are around $3.75. The draw is paying the same price as City. We’ve not had a side win in 90 minutes from the first 2 games with Real’s scoreless opener with the Italians followed by a much more entertaining 2-2 encounter between the Blue Moons and Roma. Those 2 score-lines for the final fixture are paying $12 and $11 respectively, while a 1-1 draw is $7.
Real Madrid to win 2-1 is at $8.50 while the only other price under double figures is Real Madrid to win 1 nil, which is $9. If you fancy City to score the only goal of the game that’s at $14, while the English club is paying $12 to take a 2-1 victory. There are plenty of other prices for other score-lines with some Juicy odds available if you expect a goal fest. For example Ronaldo’s men to win 4-3 is at 81 bucks while City to win in the same score-line is over $100.
Will Real Madrid manage to get off the mark in Melbourne? Can Man City score a few more goals in Australia? Most importantly though, will you be able to pick the score, or at least come close enough to keep your cash?
