There’s just one more international friendly for England to negotiate before they can get on with the real business of this summer’s World Cup. Costa Rica are the opponents for Gareth Southgate’s side on Thursday evening and although they have also qualified for Russia 2018, the away team are very much the outsiders for this one.
England are a heavy odds on price in the standard markets but for those in search of some extra value, this new customer offer from Ladbrokes* could provide the answer.
*18+. New customers only. Promo code ‘F50’ required. Certain deposit methods excluded. Min £/€5 on win or each-way bet excluding Tote or pools = match max £/€50 free bet. Min odds 1/2 (1.5). Bet must be made within 14 days. Free bet valid for 4 days. Free bet stake not returned. Single bets only. Free bet cannot be used on certain markets. T&Cs apply.
40/1 England to Win
That’s the enhanced price available here; 40/1 if England beat Costa Rica and that compares superbly with the prices in the standard betting where the home side carry best odds of 41/100 with MarathonBet for the win.
The draw follows on at 50/13 with Sport Pesa while victory for the Costa Ricans is way out at 41/5 with MarathonBet. Those numbers highlight the potential value under this Ladbrokes offer so, if you qualify for the deal, here’s what happens next.
Because this is a new-customer exclusive, the first step involves signing up for a new account and you can do that by crossing to the Ladbrokes sign up page and completing a few basic details. Only the most basic of information is required at this point but do remember to input the Promo Code ENGLAND when asked to do so.
Within around two minutes you should get an official confirmation and you should then deposit at least £5.00 via a debit or credit card before making the all-important bet.
Staking and Payout Process
With funds free and available, stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on England to beat Costa Rica when the teams play at Elland Road, Leeds, on Thursday June 7, 2018. The match has an 8pm kick off local time and in the event of a winning bet, payment will come back to you in two steps.
If England win it, an initial payment will be made in cash, based on Ladbrokes’ standard market price for this bet and this is set to hit your account shortly after the game comes to an end. Meanwhile, the balance will come back as free bet tokens within 24 hours which will top the price up to that 40/1 figure.
Alternatively, if Costa Rica manage to win or the game is drawn, a free bet token worth £5.00 will find its way into your account. We would ask you to note that any tokens issued under this promo come with a short 4 day expiry limit and while that is a full round up of the main points, you are free to check all terms and conditions on the Ladbrokes offers page.
Lots of punters still like to stay away from international friendlies as they don’t always go with form. These can often be cagey games while frequent substitutions can disturb the pattern of play and all of this can contribute to a surprise result.
Ahead of a major tournament such as a World Cup, things can be a little different as players are finding form and fitness and looking to impress their manager. As we saw with England’s game against Nigeria at the weekend, we got a competitive game that ultimately went with the favourites.
This promo isn’t certain therefore but it comes with a superb price on the favourites and could lead to significantly boosted profits for new Ladbrokes customers at the end of 90 minutes.
