Press Releases - News | Intertops Sportsbook
December 17th, 2018 – Now that is what you call a great draw. Germany and England – arguably the two biggest international rivals in world soccer – go toe to toe in three Champions League last-sixteen pairings in the New Year. Monday’s Uefa draw saw title-favorite Manchester City get underdog Schalke, gave Tottenham a rendez-vous with Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund, and perhaps most interesting off all, gave Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool team a matchup with record German champion Bayern Munich.
‘Now that is what soccer fans in both countries wanted,’ commented an Intertops manager after the draw. ‘We are sure that these pairings will induce a whole lot of interest that is sometimes missing at this early stage of the knockout phase.’
Intertops bookmakers see Pep Guardiola’s city as an odds-on pick to eliminate Schalke and Liverpool as a slight favorite to tame Bayern. The Spurs vs. BVB duel is anyone’s guess at the moment with both teams priced up early at -118.
Intertops backing Reds to get the job done 11 Dec, 2018
December 11th, 2018 – Up one minute, down the next? Liverpool took over at the top of the English Premier League at the weekend following a 4-0 win at Bournemouth, coupled with Manchester City’s loss at Chelsea. Tuesday sees the Reds desperately looking to stay in the race to win Europe’s biggest crown, the Champions League.
On matchday 6 of the group phase, coach Jurgen Klopp’s team needs to beat current Group H leader Napoli at Anfield, preferably to nil, as a 2-1 victory, for example, would still mean elimination.
‘It is a huge game on the European stage,’ commented an Intertops spokesman, ‘But we are confident that Liverpool will get the job done. You can never be sure against a quality opponent such as Napoli, but our odds of -167 reflect our confidence that a home win, at least, is very much on the cards.’
Intertops currently has the Anfield team priced at +1400 to win it all in the UCL final next May, but these odds will of course shorten if they do knock out the Italians tonight.

Red faces for the Reds in Paris? 28 Nov, 2018
November 28th 2018 – Manchester City and Manchester United booked their tickets to the last sixteen of the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday and Wednesday sees both Liverpool and Tottenham facing crucial encounters in their quest to join them there. Both EPL teams face tricky tasks in the battle for important group-stage points.
After surprisingly slipping up at Red Star Belgrade on matchday 4, Liverpool travels to Paris to face Ligue 1 dominator Paris St. Germain on the road. After beating the French all-star squad 3-2 at Anfield earlier in the competition, Jurgen Klopp’s team will be happy with a point on the road, whilst Neymar, Mbappe, Cavani and co. are burning for revenge. A loss in the French capital will see the Reds falls behind their opponents to third in the Group C table, seriously damaging their chances of moving on in the competition.
Meanwhile Tottenham hosts Inter Milan in a duel crucial to the outcome of Group B. Both teams are fighting to accompany group leader Barcelona into the last sixteen and Spurs know that they need to win to join the Italians on seven points ahead of the final matchday. After losing 2-1 at San Siro, Kane and co. will be looking to better that score to overtake the Nerazzurri in the rankings.
Intertops serves up turkey treats this Thanksgiving 20 Nov, 2018
November 20th, 2018 – That absolutely spectacular Monday Night showdown between the Chiefs and the Rams is a hard act to follow, but football fans across the US are already looking forward to mouth-watering NFL action on Thanksgiving. The Lions and the Cowboys traditionally host the first two games on Turkey Day and the festivities at Intertops are traditionally no less exciting.
This year, the Intertops team has come up with an attractive stake-back offer on each of the three Thanksgiving games, giving their customers the chance to receive a total of $150 in losing stake returned in the form of three free bets.
‘We like to split the booty, so that our customers have the chance to win in each of the three games,’ commented an Intertops manager. ‘But that is not all that we have on our Thanksgiving plate this year. After receiving many requests, we have decided to revive our NFL Parlay Boost special offer for this Thanksgiving week.’
Customers placing a winning four-fold Game Spread parlay comprised of any of the Week 12 games, will automatically receive $50 extra from Intertops as extra winnings when the football week is done and dusted.
Intertops picks pressure on the Pack to increase 13 Nov, 2018
November 13, 2018 – The Week 11 NFL action kicks off on Thursday with two famous franchises battling to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Green Bay Packers face the Seattle Seahawks in a matchup of massive importance for both. Aaron Rodgers and his team missed out on the postseason last year and are desperate to avoid that fate for a second time running. Currently third in the NFC North with a 4-4-1 record, the men in Green and Gold can’t afford to slip up again. One positive factor this weekend is, however, that division rivals Chicago and Minnesota face off at Soldier Field, meaning that the Pack can grasp the opportunity of closing the gap.
The 4-5 Seahawks don’t have a hope of winning their division, but after pushing the red-hot Rams close on the road on Sunday, hopes are still high that a strong finish to the regular season will see them book a ticket to the postseason. QB Russell Wilson will be looking to shine in his direct duel with legend Aaron Rodgers, and Intertops bookmakers predict the Hawks – currently priced as a 2.5-point favorite - will pull through.
'We are expecting a thrilling contest,' said an Intertops spokesman, 'and, as always, have prepared several special betting offers on the duel both pre-match and live.'
Is the Dodgers drought about to end? 23 Oct, 2018
October 23rd, 2018 – It has been thirty (!) years since Dodgers fans were last able to celebrate a World Series victory and hopes are high in L.A. that this drought could be over within the next few days. The 2018 duel for baseball’s big title gets underway tonight when the Red Sox host the NL champion at Fenway.
The bookmakers at Intertops, however, have bad news for Dodgers fans around the globe. The Red Sox go into Game 1 priced as a solid favorite (-155) to take their first crown since 2013. This, of course, could dramatically change of the visitors manage to steal a win at Boston tonight. The Californians look to ace Clayton Kershaw to lead them to victory from the mound, but Boston’s Chris Sale is sure to put a whole lot of resistance. Intertops once again sees the Sox as favorite to take the lead (-140), but anything is possible on a night of certain emotion.
Intertops also offers attractive offers on the exact score of the World Series, the score after three games, the total number of games, as well as a handicap special for all baseball fans.
October 16, 2018 – Cowboys fans saw their team miss out of the postseason last year and then had to endure NFC East rival Philadelphia going all the way in the Super Bowl chase. The 2018 season has got off to a mixed start for Dallas, but last week’s 40-7 thrashing of the Jacksonville Jaguars has seen a buzz return to Arlington.
With Dak Prescott, Zeke Elliott and WR Cole Beasley leading the way, the Cowboys carved open one of the league’s most feared defences in a real show of strength to move to 3-3 on the season. Week 7 sees Dallas travel to archrival Washington looking to keep the momentum going against the 3-2 Redskins. The bookies at Intertops are expecting a close-run thing with the Cowboys currently priced as a 1.5-point underdog for the duel on Sunday.
In the race to the NFC East crown, anything would appear possible – well, if you take the 1-5 Giants out of the equation that is. Intertops sees the Super Bowl champion Eagles as favorite for the crown at +115, but the Cowboys and the Redskins - priced at +200 and +250 respectively - should still ensure excitement possibly right down to the wire.
October 3, 2018 -- As the countdown continues to what is undoubtedly the highest profile UFC fight of the year, bookmakers at Intertops Sportsbook have been summing up what have been a crazy few weeks of action.
The world’s first ever online Sportsbook has not only reduced the juice on its odds to win the Conor McGregor vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov showdown and offered an attractive stake-back offer worth up to $100 as a free bet, but has also underlined its reputation for thinking outside the box.
“We must say that we’ve been surprised by the popularity of our Crazy Bet offers on the fight!” said an Intertops manager. “Players want top odds and free-bet offers, of course, but the interest in our specials has exceeded all expectations!”
“Crazy is just the right word when Conor McGregor is around and it looks as though fight fans are really keen to enjoy something out of the ordinary,” he added.
Odds on the outcome of the fight have fluctuated in recent days with McGregor’s fans still looking to back their hero. The Irishman remains the underdog at +150 though, whilst his Russian foe is currently priced at -165 to hold on to his title.
Some popular “Crazy Bets” include:
The referee is knocked out during the fight
McGregor loses the fight and tries to steal the belt before leaving the octagon
McGregor arrives at the octagon with a dolly
After a K.O., the knocked-out fighter attempts a take-down on the referee
The fight is scheduled for Las Vegas this Saturday and before both fighters step into the octagon plenty is possible in what has simply been a crazy build-up for all involved in this great sporting spectacle.
September 28, 2018 – The countdown to the UFC Fight of the Year continues with Conor McGregor making the most of the promotional press-conferences to ensure tension will be at fever-pitch when he faces Khabib Nurmagomedov in Vegas.
Whoever leaves the octagon victorious on October 6th, Intertops customers are set to be fight winners thanks to the company’s attractive specials. The world’s first online bookmaker has reduced the juice on its ‘To Win’ odds for the fight with Nurmagomedov, currently priced at -155 and McGregor at +140. It has also introduced an attractive stake-back special.
Before entering the octagon for the first time in almost two years, the flamboyant Irishman, Conor McGregor, let the unbeaten Russian champion know that he was going to ‘love putting you out of your misery and stomping on your head’. McGregor claims to be back even stronger after going thirty minutes in the boxing ring with Floyd Mayweather, but the bookmakers at Intertops are not so sure.
'We have had plenty of money coming in on Conor, who seems to be the fans’ emotional favorite,' commented an Intertops manager, 'But a 26-0 record speaks for itself and you have to see the quality that Khabib brings to the fight.'
Stake-back OfferCustomers picking the wrong man to win on October 6th will receive the consolation of getting their stake returned as a free bet. The sum returned depends on the length of the fight, but it could be up to $100 – double the stake required to qualify for the promotion.
