Tottenham Hotspurs head to the San Siro to take on AC Milan in Champions League R16 and the options that are available to soccer bettors are endless. From outright win markets to prop betting and futures, soccer bettors are in store for a high-volume Champions League betting experience.
Those in favour of Spurs to win this tie will find the North Londoners listed at +105 in the “to qualify” market, for the quarterfinals.
AC Milan has the favourite nod, predictably. It is partly down to the fact that they are set to open this tie. AC Milan is tipped at -145 ahead of this clash but depending on the outcome at the San Siro the markets could remain the same or swing in the opposite direction, as the case may be.
Other options in the prop betting markets to back the Spurs can be found in the “correct score” odds for both the full and half time markets and “win margin,” markets and much more.
Here is a quick rundown of some of these soccer-betting options. For a complete market outlook, check out our sportsbook
Correct Score, Tottenham to win:
Tottenham 1-0 +1000
Tottenham 2-0 +2200
Tottenham 2-1 +1200
Tottenham 3-0 +4500
Tottenham 3-1 +3500
Tottenham 3-2 +3500
Tottenham 4-0 +12500
Tottenham 4-1 +9000
Tottenham 4-2 +9000
Tottenham 4-3 +12500
Immediately it is obvious that any win by Tottenham is trading rather large in these markets. Nothing is priced less than quadruple digits and that is telling. It can also be off-putting for soccer-betting fans looking to back the Spurs when markets aren’t putting much stock behind them. That this is a continuation of the outright win market, which has the Spurs listed at a whopping +375 to win outright, just adds to the overall discouraging mood in the market where the Spurs are concerned.
Betting on the draw
Draw 0-0 +900
Draw 1-1 +550
Draw 2-2 +1200
Draw 3-3 +4500
Draw 4-4 +25000
Is betting on the draw a better option for Spurs fans then? Well, at times, in such high stakes matches, the draw bet is the first soccer-betting pick that fans turn to. Simply because teams can be jittery at first, more cautious than they normally would be for fear of falling so far behind in the tie that it is over before it even begins. The best-priced result in this category is a 1-1 draw but a 2-2 draw is a tempting option at +1200.
The Spurs have shown to be believers in the maxim: fortune favours the brave. After all, they bravely stared down the defending European champions Internazionale Milan at the San Siro and at White Hart Lane. And while Gareth Bale was twice heralded the hero of these fixtures, one can’t chalk the outcome of the series entirely to his singular effort. It was a team effort if there ever was one. That is something they’ll find particularly inspiring when they take on AC Milan in the same stadium. Now that Bale is almost certain to miss this game they’ll need all the inspiration they can find.
