A cracking value bet to kick off the World Cup…

20/1 Messi to be top scorer? Massive value!

20/1 Messi to be top scorer? Massive value!

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that the World Cup will soon be upon us. You may not know that it's just 31 days away!

I've started sniffing about for some value bets at a time when we're likely to be treated to a bookie bonus bonanza like Cheltenham on steroids. Whether you're into football or not, there is a plethora of value - and free money - opportunities on its way, and it's a bit rude not to be a part of that...

So, let's kick things off with a new customer offer from 8 8 8 sport. And it's a belter.

They are offering 20/1 Lionel Messi to be top goalscorer at the World Cup. He is a best priced 8/1 elsewhere. He plays for my idea of the favourites and the bookies' idea of the second favourites. They have Bosnia, Iran and Nigeria in their group, and look like scoring plenty; and Messi is - according to most people - the best player in the world. (I prefer Cristiano Ronaldo, but what do I know?!)

Messi's has scored 37 goals for Argentina, and he looks an obvious favourite in the market.

To get 20/1 - max stake a tenner, but that's still £200 back, and something to cheer right throughout the tournament in all likelihood - you need to open your account and make your bet by this Wednesday 14th May, when the offer expires.

(8/1 best available elsewhere)

To clarify, you back Messi at the normal price, but as a new registrant through that link you’ll get topped up to 20/1 within 24 hours of the event being settled.

One other reason to open an account with 8 8 8 sport is that they've kindly given me £250 in free bets to share amongst five lucky/clever readers in a tipping competition starting this week.

The competition will run on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week at York; and next Monday at Redcar and Tuesday at Nottingham.

Your first 30 days for just £1

The winners will receive prizes as follows:

1st - £120 in free bets

2nd - £60 in free bets

3rd - £40 in free bets

4th - £20 in free bets

5th - £10 in free bets

I will post tomorrow with the rules, so you have plenty of time to get involved the night before Wednesday's racing if you're in work all day.

But, for now, do take advantage of 8 8 8 sport's 20/1 Messi offer, which will qualify you for entry into the tipping competition and a chance to win part of the £250 free bet swag bag. Nice. 🙂

    I already have an account with 888. Does that disqualify me from the tipping competition

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Yes and no, Roddo. It disqualifies youfrom winning the free bet prizes but I’llbe adding something else so that anyone can enter. 🙂

    Thanks Matt
    Just had my £10 on!
    Will you be doing any evaluation’s and tip’s of the world cup matches?

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      It’s not really my thing, Pearcey. Don’t get me wrong, I love football and betting on it. But I’m not a stats monster on it like others, so I’ll stick to flagging up the standout value bets, and let readers decide whether they want a piece of that.

      Best,
      Matt

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Thanks a lot, John, that’s great to hear.

      Will keep on doing my best. 🙂

    I’ve registered but cannot find Messi at 20/1! May be coz I am on my fone, have e-mailed 888

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Gary,

      To clarify, you back Messi at the normal price, but as a new registrant through that link you’ll get topped up to 20/1 within 24 hours of the event being settled.

    Had a bash with Messi even though i think Aguero is more likely for top goalscorer. 20/1 was just too good to miss though lol

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Richie,

      Yes, that’s exactly it. There might be (slightly) more credible top scorers – and there might not – but 20/1 Messi is massive!!

      Best,
      Matt

    After I registered on 888 through ur link , tried to bet but said tech problems and try again..so went to 888 site itself and no problems getting on there..didnt do the bet as I didnt go through ur link..would I still get the 20/1 if I did?

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Gerard

      Yes, you will do if it’s your first bet. Go through that link again. Note you bet Messi at the current odds, and your account will be topped up after the event is settled.

      Any problems let me know and I’ll try to get some help from 888sport.

    Hi Matt also just registered through your link took over 1 1/2 hours to sign up and place the bet kept telling me to sign in when I was already signed in. hope it is just down to being busy or I will be betting elsewhere. Martin

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      I assume it is down to a problem with their server. Makes no sense for any site to take that long..!
