Not everyone will be a fan of the international break as we head into a round of friendlies this weekend. So many competitions around Europe are heading to a thrilling climax and these games will break up the momentum to an extent but they do give international managers the chance to look at new players and gain some form before this summer’s World Cup.
It’s also going to be fairly quiet on the betting front so it’s good to see this new customer offer come along from Ladbrokes which promises enhanced odds of 28/1 if at least one goal is scored in the Holland v England match.
Some punters like to stay away from these games as they can be unpredictable but we think there is plenty of value to be had here and in this fixture, the standard result betting has odds against figures on all three outcomes.
The Dutch go off as favourites for the win at best odds of 8/5 with Betway and MarathonBet while England follow at a top price of 2/1 with Unibet. The same bookmaker has the best numbers on the draw which completes this market at 40/17.
Meanwhile, there is an equivalent bet to this Ladbrokes promotion which would involve betting over the 0.5 goal line. Obviously it would pay out if at least one goal is scored and the current best price in the open markets is the 1/12 quoted by Bet365. That’s actually quite long for any football match but it’s still dwarfed by the Ladbrokes’ promotional price so, if you want to take this further, here’s what you need to do.
We mentioned that this offer is for new customers to Ladbrokes so, if you don’t already have any dealings here, you can head across to register for a new account. The main thing to remember here is that you must enter the Promo Code GOAL when prompted to do so but other than that only basic information is required.
It’s a fast process and once it’s been completed you will be taken to the cashier where you should deposit at least £5.00 using a debit or credit card. Those funds should clear straight away, leaving you free to make the qualifying bet.
Betting and Payment Terms
With those funds having been made available you should stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on this promo bet of at least one goal being scored when Holland host England on Friday March 23, 2018. The game itself has a 7.45pm kick off and is being televised live in the UK by ITV but whether you watch it or not, one goal will trigger a two-part payment process.
Firstly, a return will be paid to you in cash based on Ladbrokes’ standard market price in the over 0.5 goal line at the time of kick off. The balance, up to that price boost of 28/1, will then be paid out as free bet tokens. As for timing, the cash element should arrive shortly after the final whistle with the tokens hitting your account within 24 hours.
There is an alternative because, if the game finishes goalless, Ladbrokes will issue a consolation worth £5.00 as a free bet token. Do look out for these as they must be used within 4 days or they will expire and while that’s a full summary of the terms, you can check all ts and cs as they appear on the bookmaker’s promotions page.
Returning to Form
We know that the Dutch endured a miserable World Cup qualifying campaign and will not be heading to Russia 2018 but the side is finally finding some form and come into this game on the back of five straight wins. They’ve scored twelve goals in that time so those are good stats and we might need them because England haven’t been quite so impressive.
Gareth Southgate’s men returned consecutive 0-0 draws in their last two games and are without star striker Harry Kane but we only need one goal for this promo to land. Those numbers confirm that it isn’t a certainty but it’s a strong option and has an excellent price of 28/1 for those who are new to Ladbrokes.
