It’s the Europa League final tonight, and even though I wasn’t overly keen on the odds, I felt like I simply had to place a small wager on this game. The fact that the season is drawing to a close is making me less picky on my bets.
I feel like such a degenerate.
Being very anti-ManUnited, I found it difficult to take United with a handicap of -0.5, as tempting as the odds may be. A draw payout of 3.20 was quite tempting but I decided against it as it’s too specific a result to bet on in a one off cup final.
Another possibility was betting on under, but with the line at 2.25, it really wasn’t that appealing.
As such, I’ve gone for $25 on Ajax (+0.5) @ 0.94, which means I will win if the scores are tied at 90 minutes, or if (God willing) the kids from Amsterdam pull off a huge upset and beat Jose Mourinho in a final.
Fingers crossed and good luck to me!
