England enhanced! Ladbrokes offer huge price for World Cup glory
Ladbrokes are getting ready to offer patriotic punters a huge price boost ahead of this year’s World Cup in Brazil, with England’s odds of lifting the trophy set to soar from 33/1 to an incredible 66/1.*
From kick-off until the first goal is scored during the West Brom v Liverpool (1.30pmGMT) and Arsenal v Crystal Palace games (4.00pmGMT) this Sunday, customers will be able to take advantage of the bookmaker’s massive enhancement.
And the good news is that you won’t necessarily have to be incredibly fast-fingered to get in on the action.
In four of their last six respective league games, no goals have been scored in the first 15 minutes of matches involving either West Brom or Liverpool, with three of their last five meetings remaining goalless until at least the 43rd minute.
Meanwhile, four of Arsenal’s last six Premier League contests have failed to feature a goal in the opening 15 minutes.
Four of the games in that sequence have produced the first goal after half-time, a statistic that’s also valid when examining Crystal Palace’s previous six league matches.
All of the above potentially bodes well if you’re looking to back the boys in Brazil at the 66/1 price that will be available while the Super Sunday games remain goalless.
The hosts remain the 3/1 favourites to lift the famous trophy for a sixth time with bitter rivals Argentina deemed the next best hopefuls at odds of 9/2.
Roy Hodgson’s side have largely been written off given the difficult conditions they’ll encounter and having been drawn in a tricky Group D featuring Euro 2012 conquerors Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica.
But an extraordinary victory in the final at the Maracana on 13 July could represent the biggest bet of the century, especially with the tempting 66/1 carrot on offer.
