After CR7’s transfer made online sportsbook news in Italy, bookies have opened a large number of bets on Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut at Juventus. So many, in fact, that it might be hard to navigate them. We found a few great ones, though.
Betting on Ronaldo: How to maximize your returns
Gambling enthusiasts looking for a profitable but not unrealistic bet are advised to visit Unibet Sportsbook. That site offers a bet on Juventus to win the 2018/2019 Champions League with Ronaldo’s becoming the top goalscorer. Should that happen, punters will collect a whopping 17.00 increase. Despite the steep odds, that scenario is actually quite likely to become reality.
Since the 2012-2013 season, it has always been CR7 who scored the most goals (only in the 2014-2015 season did Messi and Neymar manage to match his output). Of course, he was playing for Real Madrid during this time. But before these feats, the Portuguese striker had already demonstrated his ability to outshine other forwards while wearing a different club’s jersey: he became the top goalscorer in the 2007-2008 season, when he was still in the ranks of Manchester United.
Juventus is a two-time Champions League winning team that has realistic hopes at grabbing a third trophy (they went all the way to the final in 2016-2017) but is battling some bad luck. In the last two years, they were defeated by Real Madrid, in large part due to Ronaldo’s influence on the matches. Now that the Italian side has acquired CR7, they are looking for revenge.
Juventus has explicitly told media outlets: the reason they bought the pricey striker is that their priority is a new Champions League trophy. Football fans can expect an extremely motivated, strong game from the Juventus players. Many feel that the club’s streak of bad luck will end this season—and even a few Euros can bring you huge returns if it does, which makes Unibet Sportsbook’s 17.00 option the best among the 2018/2019 Ronaldo betting specials.
The safest 2018/2019 Ronaldo betting specials
Punters who prefer to stay on the safe side may want to place money on Ronaldo’s Serie A performance. The Italian tournament has been dominated by Juventus and there is little doubt they will again be the champions under Ronaldo’s reign (1.45).
Betting on Ronaldo to become the top goalscorer in Serie A is another safe bet. At 1.80, he is the bookies’ absolute favorite, considered almost twice as likely to be the most prolific finisher than the bookies’ second favorite, Icardi (4.50).
The 2018/2019 Ronaldo betting specials are some of the hottest options on online betting sites in Italy. Make sure to take advantage of them!
