Qualification for the next round of the Uefa Champions League looks beyond Bangor City after the Welsh side lost 3-0 to HJK Helsinki last time out.
To make matters worse for Bangor, HJK continued their decent run of form with a similarly clinical 3-0 win over Vaasa at the weekend and will be highly confident of finishing off the job at the Sonar Stadium.
Antti Muurinen’s side’s winning streak now stretches back five games, with the Finnish club keeping a clean sheet on three occasions during that time.
Such form sees the hosts priced as clear favourites to win the match, with bwin offering odds of 4/25 on a home success.
With the free £25 bet for bwin.com’s new customers returning just £29 on that result, punters could be tempted to look elsewhere on the site’s betting markets.
The away win, while unlikely, offers healthy returns at 25/2, while the draw is priced at 6/1.
As this result, regardless of the score, would guarantee HJK’s advancement to the next round, a 6/1 punt on Muurinen fielding a weakened side and the game ending in a stalemate could attract some of the sensible money.
Another way for punters to improve their returns is to dip into the handicap odds available on the game and giving Neville Powell’s Bangor a 1-0 lead does just that.
Such a scoreline sees the home side’s odds improve to 12/25, while the draw becomes a 13/4 shot and the away win moves to a price of 4/1.
Therefore, new customers using their £25 free bet to back Bangor to make the 1-0 head start a platform for victory could potentially win £125.
A football betting market is also available on the half-time result, with HJK offering odds of 12/25 to be in control going into the break.
A half-time stalemate is priced at 19/10, while Bangor going into the interval in the lead is seen as a 10/1 outside bet.
However, with HJK scoring an average of 2.88 goals per game in their domestic campaign so far, some of the smart money could go on another 3-0 win for the Finns.
At 11/2, punters opting for this outcome could see some healthy returns when placing their Champions League football bets.
