Celtic continue to dominate the Scottish Premier League but with Rangers now back in the country’s elite division, we could see things become more competitive in the seasons that follow. The football on show is certainly entertaining and the SPL is a perfect place for bookmakers to provide enhanced odds offers on the biggest games.
Like most sports, the majority of enhanced odds deals on football are listed for new customers and the Scottish Premier League is no exception. They are deliberately quoted to get new players on board but these promos offer great value so why not take them up…
With the Old Firm Derby between Celtic and Rangers now back on the calendar, we should expect to see price boosts whenever these two face each other. It’s the biggest clash of all and attracts interest beyond Scotland and into the wider betting community so this is a good time to look for this type of offer.
Typically, the bookie involved will consider Rangers or Celtic to win and list an enhanced price on one, or perhaps either of the teams to win it. Odds will vary but you may see an Even Money figure lift to 7/1 or even higher so these are definitely worth looking out for.
With this type of deal you may expect to be able to stake a maximum of £10.00 on the outcome and the winnings at the standard book price get credited to your account. Profits over and above that amount will come as a free bet token.
Those terms vary so check each offer and look out for other games too. Celtic and Rangers are big names in global football with a huge following around the world so they don’t have to be playing each other for an enhanced odds deal to appear.
Bookmakers also like to list regular price boosts and naturally, football is a good sport in which to find these promotions. Scotland has the big two teams but other sides such as Aberdeen, Hibernians and Heart of Midlothian are well known and can also be the subject of these regular deals.
As an existing customer, enhanced odds deals tend to apply to multiples so a bookmaker may look at a typical weekend in the Scottish Premier League and quote a price boost on Celtic, Rangers and Aberdeen to all win their games.
The boost involved may be a little more modest with a lift of two points being common but in general, the terms are much easier to follow. For example, it’s rarer for a bookie to cap your maximum stake and any profits come back into your account without the need for free bet tokens and the worry as to when they will expire.
Another type of existing player deal will look at a certain set of circumstances in a game such as Rangers to win and over 2.5 goals or Celtic to win and Both Teams to Score. An enhanced odds offer will then be tied in and pay out if these outcomes land.
For new customer deals, 888sport and Coral are among the bookmakers that you should be looking out for. These two list offers on a regular basis while the likes of Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, ComeOn and Fun88 also quote, albeit less frequently.
For existing promos, Winner Sports are among the first to consider while Ladbrokes, BetBright and Paddy Power are among those that are also active.
