Transfer Window Betting Markets: Is There Any Value?
August 28, 2017
With roughly a week to go in the summer transfer window, it is around this time that clubs begin to panic and wonder if they need to make an extra signing or two for their squads. With that said, is there any value in betting on potential transfers?
888Sport list plenty of markets for this, and on some occasions 888Sport free bets can be used to guarantee a profit, if the odds are a close match with those on the exchange. The welcome offer for example gives you a £30 in free bets. If you can find a good match on a transfer market selection with odds of over 1.5, such as ‘Philippe Countinho’s Next Club’, we can use this to our advantage.
That being said, lets take a look at some of the transfer odds on offer from 88Sport. Alexis Sanchez seems unhappy at Arsenal, and 888Sport make him 1/4 to stay but 5/2 to make a dramatic switch to Manchester City. Big spending PSG can also be backed to sign him at 5/1.
Speaking of PSG, Angel Di Maria was wrongly announced to have signed for Barcelona earlier this week after the Catalan club’s Twitter account was hacked. This must have affected the market, as the Argentine is 7/4 to make the move for real.
Danny Rose was very vocal a few weeks ago about the fact he feels underpaid at Spurs. Though he apologised and is likely to stay at the club (1/4), he can still be backed at 13/5 to join Manchester United and 19/4 to move to Chelsea.
VVD To Stay Put?
Highly sought after defender Virgil van Dijk has sat out of every game so far, and seems intent on forcing a move away from Southampton. The Saints are still favourites to keep him (7/10), but if tested with a mega bid from Liverpool (11/10) or Chelsea (7/2) they may think twice.
Another man attracting interest from the current Premier League Champions Chelsea is Danny Drinkwater. The Leicester City midfielder is 11/20 to stay at the King Power, but 5/4 to make a move to Stamford Bridge.
Finally, there are also rumours that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may be on his way out of Arsenal. Similarly to Drinkwater, he can be backed at 11/20 to stay and 5/4 to join Chelsea.
