Neymar market shows how odds can dramatically change

July 18th, 2017 Football, News & Events, Press Release

Brazilian superstar Neymar could be on his way to Paris Saint Germain and Bookmakers have had to act quickly.

With reports that PSG are to meet the £195million release clause, his odds have now been slashed.

PaddyPower were one of the first to move Neymar to odds-on to move to PSG – making him 10/11 – this was just hours after many firms, including Ladbrokes, were offering 1/5 on him staying at Barca and as long as 3/1 on him just to move to any club.

“This market has moved dramatically in a matter of hours, quicker than Neymar himself,” OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented.

“Neymar looked as cast-iron as anyone to stay and those 1/5 odds only this morning reflected that.

“Now you are lucky to find any firm who is not odds-on.

“It shows how quickly things can change, and it really can pay to keep a close eye on the markets and somebody will have got a very big price, even today – on Neymar leaving.”
