Manchester United – 1/2 To Win Nothing This Season

With David Moyes coming under more pressure after Tuesday night’s Capital One Cup defeat to Sunderland, BetVictor are running a book on what Manchester United might, or might not win this season – and winning nothing is 1/2 favourite.

United’s best (and only, some might say) chance of silverware is in the Capital One Cup, but even if they do overcome Sunderland in the 2nd leg, their chances are fairly slim as they will be facing Manchester City in the final, who last night all but assured their place at Wembley with victory over West Ham (to put it politely).

Imagine they do get to Wembley, and City cut them to shreds again!! Ironically, it might not be the worst outcome for Moyes, if they don’t overcome the 2-1 deficit to Sunderland in the 2nd leg.

If you are an optimistic United fan, BetVictor will give you 1000/1 on them winning the Premier League, the Champions League and the Capital One Cup. A Capital One Cup and Champions League double is 40/1, while the Capital One and Premier League pays out at 66/1.

A more realistic bet might be, To Win Any Cup, at 6/4. Or in the ‘Sack Race,’ BetVictor have Moyes as 4th favourite, at 16/1.

League Cup & Champions League – 40/1

BetVictor Free Bet

To open a BetVictor account and receive a £25.00 free bet, please click here……

The BetVictor free bet is for £25.00 and is another of the ‘free matched bets’ which here at football gambler, I much prefer. The reason why I prefer a ‘free matched bet’ is because they are the ideal free bets to use for matched betting.

A ‘free matched bet’ is where you get a free bet to the same value of your qualifying (first) bet, whether that qualifying bet wins, loses or draws. It is in contrast to some free bets, which you will only receive if your qualifying bet loses.

To qualify for the BetVictor free bet you need to open an account and place a qualifying (first) bet of £25.00 on an event with odds at 2.00 (Even money) or greater.

You will also need to have your qualifying (first) bet placed and settled within 30 days of opening your account to qualify for this offer.

Once you have done this, you will receive a free bet in your account. It will appear in your BetVictor account as ‘Promo Cash’ and it also needs to be used in the next 30 days, otherwise it will expire and you will lose it.

As with all qualifying and free bets, please check the terms and conditions on the online bookmakers‘ websites before placing any bets. The reason why I always stipulate this, is because they can change the terms of the offer at short notice, and you should be sure of what you are doing before placing any bets for matched betting purposes.

Rangers cash crisis

Rangers are the latest team to emerge with a major cash crisis this week with something in the region of £25-£3o million owing. The majority would appear to be owed to Lloyds banking group although it is still unclear what the breakdown of the debt is.

The club and bank have both denied that there is a chance the Ger’s could go into administration,  but if I where a fan I wouldn’t be convinced or reassured by their respective comments. 

The club are  looking for new backers to come in and ‘invest’ some funds to enable them to get the bank off their backs. In short they haven’t got the money and need someone with bags of money to waste to bail them out.

Sir David Murray looks to have stopped putting money in and he has now stepped down as chairman.

There appears to be mixed views among the Rangers fans about Murray though, it looks like most acknowledge his commitment to the club over the 20 years that he has been involved. But there appears to be an undercurrent of disenchanted supporters who view him as the problem to Rangers debts.  

Murray may not be the chairman any more but he is still the 90% owner of Rangers shares and his reluctance to put his hand in his pocket to help out with the debts when he was the man who resided over accumilating them seems to be irritating some Ibrox fans.

With a representative of the Lloyds banking group now on the Rangers board it is debatable as to who is really running the club. After no new (permanent) signings during the summer transfer window it looks like the only transfer activity during January will be players leaving the club.

Manager Walter Smith would appear to have had enough as well if his comments over the weekend are to be taken seriously. When his contract runs out in January if Lloyds are running the club will they want to offer him a new one? Even if they do offer him a contract and his squad has been decimated would he want to sign it anyway?

Rangers are also struggling on the pitch and the fans were far from happy with last weeks 4-1 home thrashing in the Champions League to unknown FC Unirea Urziceni. With Celtic also struggling under new boss Tony Mowbray the chance is there for Rangers to successfully defend their SPL title this year, it would appear to depend on what happens over the next couple of months and during the January transfer window though.

Onto the football betting, and with online bookmakers, Rangers are 7/4 with BetVictor to win this years SPL, while Celtic are favourites and can be backed at 8/13 with Stan James (a £10 Stan James Free Bet is available to new customers).

Hibernian are outsiders at 100/1 with Paddy Power and Bet365.
