Ladbrokes have a brilliant 2014 World Cup promotion when it comes to betting on the winner of the tournament
We’re counting down the days until the World Cup and Ladbrokes have spiced things up with a superlative promotion which will see customers enjoy money back on their outright losing bets if Lionel Messi, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo or Luis Suarez score the most goals.
Simply place a bet on the 2014 World Cup outright market and you will get your wager refunded as a free bet up to £25 if any of the above quartet walk away with the Golden Ball. There’s a fairly strong chance that this will happen!
Brazil are holding steady as the 3/1 favourites to claim victory, with Argentina now trading at 4/1 and there have been plenty of bets on a team who can boast Messi, Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain as a front line.
However, Germany catch the eye at 5/1 and Per Mertesacker has revealed that many of the Arsenal scouts are looking to back his country to go all the way, having reached the semi-finals of the last two major tournaments before being eliminated.
“I can tell you that the scouting experts here at Arsenal, say to me Per, you want to do it I have the bookmaker my money set on you Germans,” said the centre-back, speaking to De Zeit.
“Many of us are in the prime of their careers. After all those second and third-place finishes, the motivation is higher than the fear of failure.
“They [the nation] think we will go out to Spain or Italy, I know, but I don’t share that feeling.
“We told the English players they are going to be eliminated by Italy and Uruguay,” added Mertesacker.
“But nobody, no matter from which country, has enough confidence to say: We’ll knock you all out in Brazil.”
