Betting Flops

Tottenham - Bayern Munich matchup Correct Score was too expensive for bookmakers

Football Gods really let this one get loose. Tottenham Hotspur was demolished 2:7 in front of its own crowd by Bayern Munich. This one will forever stay in the Champions League history. How much could have won tipsters who correctly predicted such an outcome? Let’s find out.

Truth being said, according to bookmakers Bavarians were the favourites of this matchup. However, nobody in the right mind could’ve foreseen such an outcome. Hotspurs’ victory was priced by the bookmaker Betfair at 3.40 (12/5), the draw was given the odds of 3.85 (57/20) at Betsafe and Bayern’s win was estimated by the oddsmakers at 2.15 (23/20).

Even greater payouts were waiting for the punters who bet on Bayern Ht/Ft option, which bookmaker BetVictor gave the odds of 3.60 (13/5). For those who are curious, the price for the Over 8.5 bet was set at 37.00 (36/1) by the bookmaker Betsson.

The last but not least, the cherry on the top! For those who do not get along with common sense, Unibet offered a Correct Score 2:7 option priced at 1001.00 (1000/1)!!! What does it mean? It’s very straightforward, placing a €10 stake would’ve given you a €10,010 of winnings, while a €100 would’ve hit a return of €100,100. Not bad, right?
