Betting says home win may not be enough for Supersaints

The European dream of Ireland’s St Patrick’s Athletic is expected to crumble against their opponents from Kazakhstan.

Pete Mahon’s side trail 2-1 after the first leg and are narrowly tipped to bow out of the competition at this stage, with bwin pricing the Supersaints at 6/5 to make it through to the next round.

By way of comparison, Viktor Klumytov’s men are priced as 3/5 favourites to advance to the next stage of the competition.

However, the betting market also suggests that home advantage will again be an advantage as Saints are odds-on to win the second leg.

The Richmond Park outfit offer odds of 31/50 to secure a win this time round, while the draw, which would not be enough to see them through, is priced at 13/5.

That said, the Kazakhs will take heart from the fact that St Patrick’s have won just one of their last five encounters, losing three and drawing the other.

As such, a number of football betting fans could be tempted to place a wager on an away win, which is currently seen as a 15/4 bet.

Using the free £25 bet, which bwin offers all new customers, on this result, would return £118.75 if successful.

Indeed, the Miners have lost just one of their last five and are on course for a third successive win, which could see a lot of the smart money placed on an win for the travellers.

A number of other bets have also been made available, with fans able to place wagers on the exact number of goals to be scored.

Those expecting a bore draw can back no goals at 15/2, while one, two and three goals offer odds of 15/4, 27/10 and 31/10 respectively.

Punters expecting a higher number of goals are offered a decent price of 5/1.

There is also money to be made on a successful prediction of the final score, with a repeat of the 2-1 win seen last time out offering long odds of 14/1.

A 1-0 win for the Supersaints is priced at 25/5, but perhaps the pick of the bunch is the 16/1 odds being offered on the game ending in a 2-2 stalemate.
