Victory in last season’s Europa League means that Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United are making the step up to Europe’s elite competition this season and they start their Champions League campaign against Basel. The Swiss side have upset English teams in recent seasons but United start the stronger of the two and are fully expected to take the points when the two meet on Tuesday.
The home side are heavily odds on in the result betting but new customers at Coral can claim a far more interesting 25/1 on a Manchester United victory. We’ll take a look at how it all works in a moment but firstly let’s consider those market prices in closer detail.
The current best price for a United win in the open markets stands at a miserly 1/5 with a number of bookies including Betway and 188Bet while a win for Basel is way out at best odds of 18/1 with Winner Sports.
The bookies don’t have much time for the draw either as this follows at a top price of 67/10 with MarathonBet so, if you were trying to find some value in this match, Coral’s 25/1 on a home win could prove to be your best option.
How to Proceed
If this sounds interesting then you will need to be a new customer to Coral, signing up for a new account via the link and registering some basic details. This is a fast and easy process and from this point you will be taken to the cashier where you must deposit at least £5.00 via a debit or credit card.
Certain eWallets are excluded from this deal so we recommend cards if at all possible and when funds clear (usually straight away), it’s time to make your bet. At this point you must stake the fixed amount of £1.00 on Manchester United to beat Basel when the two sides meet at Old Trafford on Tuesday September 12, 2017.
If you win the bet then profits at the bookmaker’s book price will come back into your account as cash – Coral are among a number of outlets quoting that current best figure of 1/5. Over and above that level, returns at the increased figure of 25/1 will appear as free bet tokens.
Even if this bet doesn’t land and United draw or Basel actually win it, you will still receive a free bet token worth £5.00. Remember however to check all of the terms and conditions relating to this offer and note that with Coral, free bet tokens have just four days of shelf life before they expire.
Manchester United have started their new Premier League campaign with a perfect record of three wins from three and many believe that they are genuine titles contenders this season. Basel are a strong team in their native Switzerland but United have greater quality in their squad. They are not necessarily a dead cert but this market looks about right and if you were looking to get far more value than that 1/5 best book price, this new customer promo from Coral could be an asset.
