Manchester United v Benfica: Pick a Team get a Price Boost from 888Sport

With the Champions League back on our TV screens this week we can look forward to a whole host of offers and promos from across the sportsbooks. It all starts on Tuesday in Group A where Manchester United have a perfect record of three wins from three at the half-way point and Jose Mourinho’s men will be looking for another victory when they host Benfica at Old Trafford.

It’s a game with some interesting prices across the sportsbooks but as a new customer to 888Sport, you can get a huge lift on the standard odds by choosing between the teams (TC’s apply).

Market Prices

United are the hot favourites going into this match with the home side available in the standard betting at a top price of 4/11 with Unibet. Elsewhere, 888Sport have a 6/17 price for this outcome but under this promo, that would increase to 4/1.

Anyone looking to bet on the away win would currently see odds of 8/1 with 888Sport or, that would increase to 10/1 with either bet365 or Winner Sports. However, under this offer that would boost all the way up to 66/1 if Benfica came away with all three points.

The draw completes the market here at a best of 9/2 with bet365 but both teams really need to go for the win. Manchester United are likely to secure progression to the next phase with a victory in this match while Benfica are at the bottom of the group without a single point and are set to be eliminated.

Therefore, if you’ve picked a winner, here’s what you need to do next.

Sign Up Process

We mentioned that this was a promotion for new customers to 888Sport so the first step is to sign up for a new account and you can do that by heading across via the link. It’s a fast and simple process here so you should be on board in around two minutes or less and at that point you can make an initial deposit.

This should be at a minimum of £10.00 using either a debit or a credit card and you must input the promo code 888ODDS when prompted to do so. Your funds should free up straight away and then it’s time to pick between the two teams.

You can’t back both here so make your selection between Manchester United or Benfica to win it and stake up to a maximum of £5.00. If your bet wins, the payment process is as follows:


Initial returns at the published 888Sport book price will come back to you as cash and this would arrive immediately. After that, the balance up to the relevant price boost will be paid out as free bet tokens and these will arrive within 72 hours.

Once you receive those tokens, you will have 7 days in which to use them before they expire. We’ve listed the main points of this promo but feel free to check all ts and cs before proceeding.

Take Your Pick

Form is fairly even between these two sides as we head into this game but when you look at the balance and quality of the two sides, it would seem that the bookmakers have got their prices right. United may seem the sensible bet but Benfica could upset the odds as any team can.

If you’ve picked a winner however, this new customer offer from 888Sport promises a seriously good price boost if you call correct.
