Leyton Orient’s global FIFA Ultimate Quaran-Team tournament is a hit with football fans.
The betting public are also taking an interest too, and bookmaker SportNation.bet is leading the way with SIX markets on the tournament, more than any other firm.
From the tournament winner to top Premier League club and round betting, there are a number of familiar football markets returning for punters to bet on.
Manchester City have hoovered up every domestic cup for the last two seasons and are 8/1 joint-favourites to win the Ultimate Quaran-Team competition and add to their growing trophy collection – the same price as AS Roma, while Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall both on 12/1.
Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend is representing the Eagles but is 66/1 to win the tournament and 25/1 to be the best placed Premier League side.
City are 6/4 to be the top Premier League team, Watford are next at 2/1 and Wolves are 9/2.
Orient, who created the competition on the first Saturday without any fixtures, are priced at the longest odds of 100/1, with a tough first round tie against Locomotiv Moscow, who have their own eSports team and at 16/1 are one of the shortest-priced teams to win.
“The tournament is bringing together football fans in an unusual but fun way in the absence of real sport taking place,” a SportNation.bet spokesperson told Bettingpro.com.
“The tournament is perfect for punters in the absence of any live sport and we are already seeing a great deal of interest from customers.
“City being favourites in any competition is no shock and they are once again the team to beat alongside Italian giants AS Roma.”
