For football betting fans who have attentively followed the summer transfers and pre-season match results, Coral's new ante-post market for outright league winners could seriously pay off.
Punters place their bets before or as soon as the season begins, a bold strategy that requires having a lot of faith in the accuracy of predictions. However, ante-post prices also tend to be far more generous than those on the day of the event, and Coral Sports is taking this further by promising the best odds. It claims to offer the highest returns on every team in several leagues, including England’s top four divisions, the Scottish Premiership and Championship and four of Europe's highest-rated leagues, including the Spanish La Liga and France's Ligue 1.
The new market will be a particularly attractive proposition for gamblers keen on accumulators. It will give them the opportunity to string together a series of ambitious pre-season bets, maximising on the already lucrative potential of these daring wagers. With Coral guaranteeing the best prices across the board, bettors won't risk losing out on more profitable odds on certain bets elsewhere.
There's certainly a precedent to demonstrate the win potential of accumulator bets on such a market. Last season, one incredibly lucky punter managed to net £83,252 having placed a five-fold accumulator back in August 2013. Rory Flynn predicted – correctly – that Manchester City would win the English Premier League, Queens Park Rangers would be promoted from the Championship, Wolves would win League One, Real Madrid would win the Champions League and Germany would win the World Cup. If gamblers managed to achieve a feat like that with Coral Sports' ante-post odds, there's no telling how huge the windfall could be.
Needless to say, this is not a market for the faint-hearted. Almost every stage of Rory Flynn's bet came down to a nail-biting moment, from the last minute goal that secured QPR's promotion to Germany's 113-minute wait to seal the deal. Even a single bet in the ante-post market can require just as much patience and confidence, as gamblers still have to contend with plenty of nerve-wracking moments before an ante-post wager can come to fruition.
