Paddy Power is preparing for a European battering this week that would make a trip to the French Riviera with Adrian Chiles and Gareth Southgate look positively appealing.
The boss has stuck his cajones on the block and gone best price on Barcelona, Bayern Munich and PSG. Plus he’s still running the Acca bonus so it’s clear he’s ignoring the daily emails about how much punters are coining us for this month. All things considered it’s a worrying business strategy. Dancing around shirtless singing Pharrell Williams might make you feel good, but it’s not going to help when the shareholders come knocking.
Luckily it’s good for punters, and as we’re not in charge of the margins on the Blog our jobs are safe, so we don’t mind shouting about it. It’s the lads who have disregarded the abacus in Finance that should be preparing for the inevitable s***storm.
A four-fold on the four Champions League 1/4 final favourites this week – Barca, Bayern, PSG and Madrid – pays out £68.60 for a £10 bet. This goes up to £74.46 with our Acca Bonus and is 19 per cent more than you’d get at William Hill!
That’s the equivalent of £14 or four pints at Old Trafford which is a great way to roar on an inevitable Bayern victory. For everyone who likes pretty graphs – and let’s be fair who doesn’t – here’s one that emphasises our point in Excel form.
Paddy Power are industry-best on the Champions League four-fold and everything gets a whole lot sweeter with the Acca Bonus.
We’re also best priced on Neymar, Diego Costa, Claudio Pizarro, Mario Gotze, and Franck Ribery in the first goalscorer market if you’re that way inclined PLUS we’re refunding all the usual markets on the United v Munich game as a free bet if Wayne Rooney scores at anytime.
When you put it like that, it’s no surprise that the food in the canteen is grim.
