It’s been a poor tournament for two-time World Champions Argentina but somehow, despite only picking up a solitary point from their first two games, the South Americans are still in with a chance of making it to the knockouts.
If they are to progress at Russia 2018, Argentina must beat Nigeria in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday night and hope that the result from the Iceland v Croatia game goes their way. There are a number of permutations involved but firstly, the Argentines just have to win and this new customer offer from Coral carries excellent enhanced odds of 40/1* if they can do just that.
*18+. New UK+IRE customers only. Certain deposit types and cash out excluded. Winning bets paid in cash at normal price. Enhanced odds paid in £5 free bets credited within 24 hours, valid for 4 days, stake not returned. Losing £5 free bet excludes Coral Connect customers. T&Cs Apply.
Nigeria have three points at this stage of the competition but it’s Argentina who start here as clear favourites at best open market odds of 7/12 with Unibet for the win. The draw is available at a top price of 7/2 with BetFred while victory for the Nigerians completes the three options at a best of 113/20 with MarathonBet.
Those figures underline the support for Argentina in the market and they also highlight the potential for this price boosted deal from Coral. If you’d like to take it further, here’s how it works.
This offer is only available to new customers of Coral so, if you do not already hold an account here, you can head over via the link to the sign up page and complete some very basic information. Send it across using a secure server and you should be validated and confirmed as a new account holder in five minutes or less.
From here, you should find yourself at the cashier’s page where you can add some funds to cover the bet. The minimum deposit is set here at £5.00 and please avoid using Skrill, Neteller or PaySafeCard to do this as they are specifically excluded and will render the offer null and void.
Take out a debit or credit card, deposit £5.00 or more, and you’re ready to move on to the next phase.
Betting and Payments
Funds should be freed up straight away and you can then stake the fixed amount of £1.00 on Argentina to beat Nigeria when the teams meet in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday June 26, 2018. The game kicks off at 7pm UK time and is being picked up live by BBC One so you can watch it all unfold in real time if you prefer.
Whether you watch or not, we just need Argentina to win this match and if that happens, Coral will pay out at 40/1 in two steps as follows:
An initial profit will be made in cash, based on Coral’s standard market price for an Argentina win and that should appear in your account shortly after the final whistle. The balance, up to that enhanced odds figure of 40/1, will then arrive as a series of free bet tokens within 24 hours.
Those tokens must be used within 4 days or they will expire and, as an alternative to the above scenario, if Nigeria win or the game is drawn, the bet technically fails but you will receive a free bet token worth £5.00 as a consolation.
That £5.00 token will also carry the same 4 day limit and while that completes a full summary of the main points of this deal, you are free to check all terms and conditions as they appear on the Coral promotions page.
Anyone looking at the form guide may wish to steer clear of Argentina in this match and while the side were undoubtedly poor against Iceland and Croatia, they know that nothing less than a win against Nigeria will do.
We’ve seen them do it before after slow starts in previous World Cups, most notably in 1990 when Argentina overcame a 1-0 opening defeat against Cameroon to make it all the way to the final. This isn’t a certain bet but the Argentinians have the stronger side and if Messi and co can raise their game, they can still deliver at huge odds of 40/1 for new Coral customers.
