Football tournaments are a great chance to make some money, not just for punters but for betting companies too. Lots of money placed and lots of money lost. I have placed a few pre-tournament bets that I thought I’d share with you.
I’ve picked quite a few players and place each-way bets on all of them.
SPAIN – Pedro 50/1
HOLLAND – Klass-Jan Huntelaar 18/1
GERMANY – Mesut Ozil 66/1
GERMANY – Lukas Podolski 28/1
FRANCE – Franck Ribery 50/1
POLAND – Robert Lewandowski 20/1
Mr Lewandowski got us off to a great start with a goal today. I’d hope at least one or two of these could finish in the top three goalscorers at the end of the tournament
Paddy Power were doing a special this morning if you pick four group winners you would still win if one of the team let you down.
I’ve gone with: FRANCE, SPAIN, GERMANY and RUSSIA
It worked out at around 19/1
My last bet is one backing FRANCE to win the whole tournament with Karim Benzema to be top scorer at 66/1
Hope everyone gets some money on and picks some winners.
