The special bets on Zenit FC will certainly motivate you to place your bets and predictions on the team. Zenit has been dominating the Russian domestic competitions in recent years and is showing no sign of slowing down. However, the team is still struggling in European competitions including the UCL. Regardless, the betting options available for you are somewhere in between being daring and realistic. The riskier the option you choose to go for the higher the rewards become. So, which options are you going to place your bets on?
Zenit’s Success Continues
Zenit Saint Petersburg is the most successful Russian football club in recent history. The current Russian Premier League champion has overshadowed any other club in domestic competitions. For instance, Zenit has now won the Premier League for three consecutive years, and a total of six times in the past ten years. Additionally, the club has also won five Super Cups, four Russian Cup titles, one UEFA Cup, one UEFA Super Cup, and many more titles. In the upcoming season, the club aims at continuing its domestic dominance, and hopefully meet expectations in the Champions League. Under the leadership of current manager Sergey Semak, and with their strong attacking duo, such goals are plausible. As a result, bookies focused on the predictions related to the Premier League and UCL in their special bets on Zenit FC. Here are your betting options for the upcoming 2021/ 2022 season.
Special Bets on Zenit FC for the Premier League Stats
For the past three seasons, Zenit has been the best performing team in the Premier League. To put you in perspective, Zenit’s least performing season in the last three years had them win the league title with an 8-point margin. In each of those seasons, the team won at least win 67% of their matches. As a result, bookies and online sportsbook sites in Russia created an option to predict the club’s total wins in their special bets on Zenit. For instance, the betting odds at 1xBET Sportsbook for Zenit to win over/under 19.5 matches are 1.85.
Dominating such a competitive league requires a balanced team and a good squad depth. In fact, Zenit is the strongest team both offensively and defensively. With players like Dzyuba and Azmoun leading the attacking lineup, and Dejan Lovren at the back, the team certainly has the chance to continue its league domination. As a result, 1xBET Sportsbook included the number of goals scored and conceded in its special bets on Zenit FC. The betting odds for the team to score over or under 64.5 goals are 1.85, while the odds for them to concede above/under 22.5 goals are also 1.85.
Zenit’s Odds on UCL Are Limited
Unfortunately for the club, Zenit’s success does not transfer to the UEFA Champions League. Realistically speaking, the team’s goals would be to produce good performances and score the points that will take it to Europa League. Due to the high level of competition, the team rarely passes the group stages into the playoffs. For instance, Zenit was knocked out of the group stages last season after finishing last in Group F and failing to win any games. However, things might be different in the upcoming UCL. 1xBET Sportsbook allows you to bet on what stage the club will reach in its special bets on Zenit FC. The following table shows the available options along with their betting odds:
|Reach the PlayOffs||2.55|
|Reach the Round of 8||7.00|
|Reach the Round of 4||23.00|
|Reach the Final||34.00|
Looking at the available options and based on the club’s history, it seems highly unlikely for Zenit to get past through the round of 16. Therefore, your best winning chance is to bet on the team reaching the playoff. However, if you are more of a risk-taker who likes to go big, then betting on the team reaching the round of 8 would be more to your liking.
