Betting on sports specials: October 2019

Many online bookmakers offer specialised markets. Also known as specials, these include odds on the number of corners and bookings a match will have, odds for the first goal scorer, or the time of the first goal scored.

There are also proposition bets on other events which happen outside a football game. These could include sacking of coaches, player transfers and individual awards. Various media deliver a lot of news content daily, and this only fuels interest in betting on sports-related events.

Betting on coach leaving

There is a website in England called which publishes news about possible coach resignations and sportsbook odds.

Anyone can find out which Premier League manager is on the verge of being sacked, who is the favorite to occupy a vacant job, and what are the odds on Paul Pogba or Christian Eriksen leaving England in January…

Due to poor results, soon coach resignation is expected now in Manchester United, Everton and Tottenham: the odds for the next Premier League manager to leave are the following:

  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – 3.00
  • Marco Silva – 4.00
  • Mauricio Pochettino – 4.00.

Sportsbook odds also clearly indicate what changes could happen: David Moyes’ chance to become the next Everton coach is estimated at 3.00. British bookmakers probably know something, so the bet on Moyes seems to be a good option to triple your wager.

Those who follow Spanish football know that there are some coach issues at both La Liga giants – Barcelona and Real Madrid. Despite all the merits and authority of Ernesto Valverde and Zinedine Zidane, bets on their successors are already accepted, favorites are identified.

Next Real Madrid coach odds:

  • Jose Mourinho – 2.75,
  • Mauricio Pochettino – 2.75,
  • Massimiliano Allegri – 5.50,
  • Xabi Alonso – 6.00.

Next Barcelona coach odds:

  • Roberto Martinez – 3.75,
  • Ronald Koeman – 5.50,
  • Luis Enrique – 6.00,
  • Marcelo Gallardo – 6.00,
  • Xavi Hernandez – 7.00.

There are also markets for individual coaches. It’s nice to see a market dedicated to such respected person as Arsene Wenger – now you could bet on Wenger’s next job at these odds:

  • France national team – 4.50,
  • Paris Saint-Germain – 7.00,
  • Any Chinese club – 8.00,
  • Real Madrid – 9.00,
  • Any MLS club – 9.00,
  • England national team – 10.0,
  • Monaco – 11.0,
  • Barcelona – 11.0.

Indeed, the legendary Frenchman has not yet announced the end of his coaching career, and we’ll probably see him again at the helm of… a Chinese club? It would be great to get the inside information from some Chinese comrades and have time to bet with 8.00 odds…

Arsene Wenger: Nice odds, maybe it’s really time to resume my career!

Betting on transfers

Online sportsbook websites also offer specials that are based on player transfers. For example, it is still possible that the continuing saga of Neymar will end with his loud return to Spain. Here are the odds:

Neymar’s club after January 2020 transfer window:

  • Paris Saint-Germain – 1.25,
  • Barcelona – 3.50,
  • Real Madrid – 11.0.

A new star broke out in FC Salzburg at the beginning of the season: 19-year-old Norwegian striker Erling Haland scored 11 goals in 9 matches. Top European clubs have immediately lined up for a talented player, and bookmakers are already evaluating the chances of his winter transfer.

Erling Haland’s club after January 2020 transfer window:

  • Manchester United – 6.00,
  • Barcelona – 7.00,
  • Liverpool – 13.0,
  • Real Madrid – 15.0,
  • Manchester City – 15.0.

Recently there was news about Juventus and Napoli’s interest in the Norwegian, so bookmakers could be further updating their odds.

The best football player of 2019 is already known

As for the Ballon d’Or 2019, the main individual football award, the winner odds are unlikely to change much. Liverpool’s Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk is unanimously considered the favorite.

Five-time winners of this award, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo know that they will be present at the ceremony only as guests – because the odds for the Ballon d’Or winner now look like this:

  • van Dijk – 1.40,
  • Messi – 3.00,
  • C. Ronaldo – 18.0.

The era of Leo and Cristiano’s rivalry is coming to an end…

It seems to be a reliable investment: a thousand wagered on van Dijk will bring you 400 net winnings on one pleasant December evening. (Consider this free tip as an autumn gift from VipDeposits for all betting lovers.)

Or maybe you prefer to bet on other sports? No problem – you can bet on who will retire earlier: Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal. Odds on 38-year-old Swiss are 1.15, on 33-year-old Spaniard – 5.00.
A thousand wagered on Federer will bring you only 150, but it will be an easy win. Of course, if not counting the nerves spent when reading the news about Nadal’s injuries or some other problems.

It is no less interesting to bet on events around the sports than on the game results. Just instead of looking at the current form and style of the teams play, you need to follow the general news: what players and coaches say in interviews, what transfers are being discussed. But real sports betting fans do it anyway, it’s hard to be a successful player without reading the news and monitoring the odds.

Keeping up with what’s happening is good. But it is equally important to be able to profit from this. Both Skrill and NETELLER e-Wallets are indispensable tools for betting at sportsbook websites worldwide.
