Join Ladbrokes for 25/1 on Manchester City to Beat Bristol City
After the drama of an FA Cup third round weekend, we now return to England’s second knockout competition which has reached the semi final stage. The EFL Cup is seen very much as a secondary tournament but it’s taken very seriously by the big clubs and that’s evidenced by the fact that we have some top teams left in the draw.
They don’t come any bigger than Manchester City at the moment who are Premier League leaders and are quickly homing in on another title. It’s therefore a daunting task for Championship side Bristol City who have been drawn against Pep Guardiola’s men.
The first leg of that semi takes place on Tuesday January 9 and while there will be little interest in Manchester City’s standard market price, a new customer offer from Ladbrokes offering 25/1 on the home win could change all that.
Remember, that is the price for a win in 90 minutes on Tuesday and doesn’t include any outcome from the second leg but how does it compare with the rest of the market?
At the time of writing, existing customers at Ladbrokes could get just 1/9 on victory for Manchester City while the best price from around the sportsbooks sat at 1/6 with Betway. To put that into further context, the draw was on offer at 19/2 with MarathonBet while Ladbrokes were offering the best market price on a Bristol City win of 28/1.
If you agree with those assessments and qualify for the offer, here’s what to do next.
As we mentioned, this is a promotion for new customers at Ladbrokes so naturally the first step is to sign up for a new account. You can head over via the link to complete a fast and easy process which requires just basic information, together with the Promo Code CITY.
Once that’s finished, Ladbrokes should automatically take you to their cashier to make an initial deposit. Fund at least £5.00 into that new account using a debit or credit card and then it’s time to place the opening bet.
Betting and Payouts
Stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on Manchester City to beat Bristol City when these teams meet at the Etihad on Tuesday January 9, 2018. It’s a 7.45pm kick off, televised live by Sky Sports in the UK and if the bet lands, payment is as follows.
An initial payment will be made in cash, based on Ladbrokes’ standard market price at the time the game kicks off and that is paid shortly after the final whistle. The balance, up to that enhanced odds figure of 25/1, will then arrive as free bet tokens and these will hit your account within 24 hours.
Alternatively, if the game is drawn or Bristol City happen to win it, Ladbrokes will issue a free bet token worth £5.00. Please note that these tokens must be used within 4 days before they expire and while those are the main points of this offer, full terms and conditions are clearly displayed on the Ladbrokes’ promotions page.
Bristol City won’t lack any confidence having beaten Manchester United in the last round and they will also be aware that Manchester City needed penalties earlier on to get past lower league opposition in Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Nothing is certain of course but while those previous results can be kept in mind, this is a strong offer with Manchester City being so dominant right now and it’s one that carries great odds of 25/1 for new Ladbrokes customers.
