Best Bets To Claim Betfred £40 Welcome Offer

Saturday, July 25: Benfica to beat Sporting CP & over 2.5 goals – Benfica’s matches have been loaded with goals since the season resumed and I see no reason for that to trend to change in their final game of the season. They should sign off with three points against Sporting Lisbon in a match that sees at least three goals. Over 2.5 goals has been a winning bet on four of the last six games where Benfica recorded a positive result.

Sunday, July 26: Manchester United to beat Leicester City 2-1 – It is winner-takes-all at the King Power Stadium and given the form contrasting form that these two teams are in, I have to go with United to claim all of the spoils. The Red Devils have been a little leaky at the back in recent weeks though, so I would not be shocked to see Leicester score in a losing effort, especially with top scorer Jamie Vardy in good form and leading the charge for the Golden Boot.
