Many see this tournament as the poor relation to the far more prestigious Champions League but the competition produces some thrilling football with some of the best teams from around Europe involved.
TV stations across the continent are covering it extensively and the bookies love it too, as evidenced but the host of offers that spring up around the Europa League. Included amongst those promotions are a wide choice of football price boosts and enhanced odds deals but how do you find these and what are the important points that you need to know?
A large number of enhanced odds offers on the Europa League will be for new customers only so if you don’t have an account with the bookmaker involved, you can get on board via one of these deals. They are very simple to follow with a price lift quoted on one, or possibly both teams to win it and the numbers can be very tempting indeed.
A bookmaker such as 888Sport might take an Even Money price on one team and boost it to around the 6/1 or 7/1 mark. With this offer, you could stake up to £10.00 with part of the returns coming back to you as free bet tokens.
Over at Coral, they quote similar deals but the terms are quite different. Here, you can only stake a maximum of £1.00 but you may well find that the price in question has risen all the way up to 25/1 or possibly even higher.
Naturally, you should check all ts and cs but this is typical of the sort of deal you can find as a new customer and we will go on to list further bookmakers who are fond of this type of promo.
If you already have an account at a certain bookmaker, you can still find price boosts but the details here are much changed from the type of promotion that you will get as a new customer. The main thing to note is that the odds increase is more modest so you may see a 6/1 option lifted to around 8/1 or 9/1.
The deals will generally involve accas so you may have to pick two or three selections in order to qualify for the offer. A typical example of this is over at SkyBet where they may pick three football teams and if all three win their matches and score at least two goals, you can get a price boost.
Other offers may pick two outcomes from the same game so, for example, Ladbrokes may list an enhanced price on Manchester United to win and Wayne Rooney to score in a certain match.
In general, while the price boosts involved may be smaller, the terms are much more favourable. There are few, if any restrictions in terms of a maximum stake, and profits should be returned straight into your sportsbook account so you needn’t be concerned with any free bet tokens and their subsequent terms.
We’ve mentioned three bookmakers so far but there are a host of other operators who like to get involved with these offers. For new customer deals, 888Sport and Coral are among the biggest players but you can also add Paddy Power, BetBright, ComeOn, Fun88 and Ladbrokes to that list.
SkyBet are excellent for a daily stream of enhanced multiples as are BetBright, Winner Sports, Ladbrokes and others.
Look out for those bookmakers and we will also plan to showcase the best enhanced offer prices from around the Europa League, right through from the start of the season to the final in May.
It may not carry the prestige of the Champions League but this is a trophy that all participating teams want to win. The Europa League produces some high drama and great action too so look out for the bookies as these high value price boosts drop in.
