The Only Two Bookmakers Running Football Betting Offers This Weekend Revealed

East Enders Live

Ironically the most talked about betting event of this week was not in sport, but rather television.  A staggering £80m was speculated to have been bet on the outcome of the murderer of Lucy Beale in Eastenders. There has been a mixed reception from fans, but bookmakers would have been delighted with the outcome too, as it was revealed it was an outsider, 11 year old Bobby.  Perhaps it was too much of a distraction for the bookmakers, since there are not many offers this weekend.  We know of just two at this moment in time, but if any are added we’ll update the article.

Betfair
Betfair Offer: Three games with free bet refunds

Betfair should really clean up this weekend with punters looking for a bit of extra value. There are three games where both new and existing Betfair customers can get their losing bets refunded.  The games are: Manchester City vs Newcastle, Everton vs Leicester, and Southampton vs Liverpool. For each of the five games, there is a ‘trigger’ you can select, and if that trigger happens, should bet lose, you will receive a refund (as a free bet). As usual, a maximum of £25 applies.

Bet Victor
Bet Victor Offer: New customers get enhanced odds

Bet Victor have enhanced odds on Manchester City to beat Newcastle, and Chelsea to beat Burnley.  According to Bet Victor, the average odds for this is 1/2, however, if you’re a new customer you can get enhanced odds of 5/1. The maximum is rather small, only £5 and the other thing you need to be conscious of is that if you take advantage of this offer, you can’t use their £25 free bet. We’d recommend you simply do the latter ourselves.

Outside of these games, we’ve got eyes on the Aston Villa game. They’re under the new leadership of Tim Sherwood who will be keen to pull off a win against Stoke that should lift them out of the relegation zone. They haven’t won any of their last ten games, and have only scored 12 goals so far this season (in 25 matches). That’s now not even a goal every other game, and with Stoke having conceded 8 goals in their two previous games, it looks like the right fixture for the players to impress their new manager.

This Week’s Offers For Premier League Derby Weekend

Arsenal vs Spurs

It’s derby weekend with the Merseyside Derby and North London Derby, and quite a few of the enhanced offer revolve around these games. Four of the last Merseyside Derby fixtures have resulted in draws, with just one Liverpool win back in January when they won 4-0. In terms of recent form, again it would be difficult to see an Everton victory given that they have won just one game in their last seven fixtures, whilst Liverpool go into the match  on the back of two wins.  In the other derby, Tottenham and Arsenal are both in contention for champions league places and only two points separate them in the league.  We’re surprised that Arsenal are favourites and think Tottenham represent good value at 9/4. Arsenal have won four of the last encounters, but both teams are in form and Arsenal will be playing without their top goal scorer Sanchez who is struggling with a hamstring injury. Here are the betting offers for the weekend:

Ladbrokes
Ladbrokes Offer: Enhanced odds on Merseyside Derby

This is the second enhanced offer from Ladbrokes in 2015 and having spoken to them this week, it looks like they are going to continue doing them. Again, it is only for new customers but the maximum stake is higher than the average at £10 and the winnings are paid as cash. You can get 8/1 on an Everton win, or alternatively 6/1 on a Liverpool win. Given some of the statistics we have covered, we’d opt for the shorter but more probable Liverpool enhanced odds.

Betfair
Betfair Offer: Pick your own money back bonanza

It’s the best weekend of the year for the Betfair ‘choose your own refund trigger’ offer as it’s running for three games this weekend. Not only is it available for both the North London and Merseyside Derby, but also it’s applicable for Aston Villa versus Chelsea. Normally we would give some examples of the triggers to choose from, but there are just so many this week! They comprise of the usual first goal scorer, and both teams to score etc. As usual, open to both new and existing customers.

Bet Victor
Bet Victor Offer: Red Card Refund & Enhanced odds

Two different offers from Bet Victor this weekend. For existing customers, Bet Victor are refunding bets on certain markets if there is a red card when Everton face Liverpool.  There has only been one red card from each club so far this season, but this game will be a highly emotional affair, especially when considering it will be Steven Gerrard’s last Merseryside Derby.  The other offer, only for new customers is you can get enhanced odds of 5/1 for Manchester City to beat Hull.

Betway
Bet Victor Offer: First goalscorer bonus

Something a little different from Betway. Today Betway announced themselves today as the new sponsor of West Ham and launch with a betting offer to celebrate it. Place a bet on first goal scorer, and for every goal that they get against Manchester United this weekend, they will reward you with a £5 free bet.  The growth of this company is impressive and we’re pleased to see their new relationship with West Ham.

Chelsea Remain Bookies’ Favourites Despite Absence of Diego Costa

Diego Costa Suspended

Chelsea play Manchester City in the headline fixture of the weekend. Today it was announced that Diego Costa (currently Chelsea’s top goal scorer with 17 goals in 19 games) will be suspended after controversially stamping  twice in the midweek cup game against Liverpool.  Despite this, Chelsea remain the favourite among bookies, with Bet 365 having them down as favourites at 2.15.  Over the past five encounters, it has been pretty even, especially in the last game when Lampard got his goal against his former club. Interestingly, there has been an average of over 3 goals in each of the last five encounters, which indicates that the fixture could be a bit of a goal fest but it’s probable both teams are going to be a bit more cagey this time round. It’s not the only fixture this weekend, so let’s take a look at what the betting sites are doing this weekend in terms of offers for new and existing customers:

Ladbrokes
Ladbrokes Offer: Enhanced odds on Chelsea & Manchester City

New customers for Ladbrokes can get enhanced odds this weekend on the headline fixture. If you’re backing Chelsea, Ladbrokes are offering enhanced odds of 5/1 whilst those backing Manchester City can get enhanced odds of 8/1. They’re too favouring a Chelsea win, but with this particular offer, the maximum is a little higher at £10, so if you were to back and win Manchester City, you would scoop you £80 profit.

Paddy Power
Paddy Power Offer: Money back if it’s a draw

Nice straight forward one from Paddy Power which open to new and existing customers. If you either Chelsea or Manchester City to win, and the game ends in a draw, Paddy Power will refund your bet as a free bet up to the value of £50. There has not been a draw in the past five time the teams have played each other, but with much more at stake, and Chelsea more likely

Betfair
Betfair Offer: Pick your own money back

For both new and existing customers (horay!). Betfair will give you an array of options to trigger your money-back if your bet loses. The list at present includes ‘game ends in a 1-1 draw’, ‘Hazard scores first’, ‘Chelsea win both halves’, ‘Man City keep a clean sheet’, or ‘Man City score 3 or more goals’. Apart from the latter, we think those represent good options.

Bet Victor

Bet Victor Offer: Enhanced odds on Manchester United

Bet Victor are  trying to tempt new customers in with enhanced odds for Manchester United versus Leicester. You can back Manchester United to win at 4/11 (a £5 bet would win you £1.82) or with the enhanced offer at 5/1 (a £5 bet would win you £25).  The drawbacks are that this is for new customers only, and the maximum stake is £5, otherwise as enhanced offers go this is pretty good. Leicester did win the last time the two teams played, but Manchester United won the previous fixtures, almost with all clean sheets.

Boylesports
Boylesports Offer: No lose free bet offer

Lastly, probably the more specific offer of the week since you’ll need to be a new customer and on your mobile for this one. Boylesports are offering a simple enhanced odds offer of 7/1 for Man Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea to all win. If you make the bet and it doesn’t come in, Boylesports will refund your bet (maximum of £10) as a free bet. So kind of nothing to lose here.

Premier League Title Race is Wide Open Entering 2015

Chelsea Manager

Manchester City have caught up Chelsea at the top of the league and both teams will be looking for three points as they cross the half way point in the season. Chelsea face Newcastle, who ended their previous unbeaten run earlier in the year.  Manchester City travel to Everton who have lost their last four games. The betting offers for this weekend primarily consist of enhanced odds on the Super Sunday fixtures. Lets go…

Betfair

Offer: Pick your own money back

Betfair are allowing customers betting on the Sunderland v Liverpool, and Man Utd v Southampton games to pick their own cashback. The liverpool specials are largely orientated around a Liverpool victory and Liverpool goalscorers. The latter is themed around Man Utd being victors with goals from Rooney and Van Persie. Visit the Betfair website for the full list.

Sky Bet

Offer: Various Price Boosts

Nothing too sexy from Sky Bet this weekend, just a couple of price boosts. There is a Super Sunday price boost, which is Arsenal and Man Utd to both win increasing from 6/4 to 3/1. This will be on the site from 9am Saturday, so hold on for now if you plan to bet on that outcome. The other price boost is Chelsea, Man City, and West Brom all to win increasing from 7/2 to 5/1.

Boylesports

Offer: Double Odds

Given there are not many offers this weekend, we thought we’d wheel out one of the on-going promotions. For the weekend fixtures, if you bet on the fist goal scorer with Boylesports, and the goal is scored within the first twenty minutes, Boylesports will double your odds.

Bet Victor

Offer: Enhanced odds

One just for new customers. Bet Victor are offering enhanced odds on the Arsenal v Stoke game of 5/1 for Arsenal to beat Stoke. Arsenal are the likely favourites for this game, however the maximum stake you can bet is only £5, so you don’t stand to win too much. Bet Victor offer a free £25 free bet for new customers, so we’d probably favour that ourselves.

Unibet

Offer: Enhanced odds

Finally Unibet. Again, it’s enhanced odds, for both Man Utd and Arsenal to both win. You’ll receive odds of 6/1, with the maximum bet being a bit more than what Bet Victor is.  Sadly it’s just for new customers again.

Man Utd v Liverpool Is The Focus For The Bulk Of The Weekend Offers

liverpoolmanutd

Both Manchester United and Liverpool have had disappointing seasons. Louis van Gaal continues to reform his inherited squad and had a slow start to the season. Brendan Rodgers himself is under pressure as Liverpool continue to get over the disappointment of missing out on the title last season. However, both teams have had recent good form. Manchester United have won their last five games, and Liverpool have picked up seven points out of a possible nine in their last three games. What are we have here is two teams coming into much needed form, and this clash could determine who continues that form. On top of that, it’s one of the most competitive rivalries in the Premier League, so it is no surprise that bookmakers are cooking up lots of betting offers to stir up interest in the game. Here is what is going on…

Bet 365

Offer: Free £50 in-play bet for Man Utd vs Liverpool

It’s not often that Bet 365 have offers which is testament to the strength of this particular fixture. Simply place a pre-match bet, and Bet 365 will award you a free in-play bet to the same value on Sunday. Important to note is that if you place multiple pre-match bets, Bet 365 will award you the free bet based on your first bet. So make sure your first bet is your largest, and the offer is made void if you cash out early.

Sky Bet

Offer: Money back if Manchester United win

Sky Bet are going bold with money back if Manchester United win the Sunday fixture. If they do, Sky Bet will refund losing bets in the ‘first goalscorer’, ‘last goalscorer’, ‘correct score’, and ‘scorecast singles’ up to the value of £25. As we said, Manchester United have won their last five games and start as favourites, so quite a strong offer from Sky Bet here.

Boylesports

Offer: Enhanced odds for new customers

Here is an offer for just the Saturday fixtures. Enhanced odds are being a more popular way for bookies to attract new customers. If  you fancy Chelsea (playing Hull), Arsenal (playing Newcastle), and Man City (playing Leicester) all to win their respective games, Boylesports are enhancing the odds from 6/5 to 6/1. The one fixture we think that could throw this is the Arsenal game. Newcastle are in good form at the moment, and beat Chelsea last week so we fancy a draw in that game.

Bet Victor

Offer: Enhanced odds for new customers & red card refund

Two from Bet Victor this weekend. First of all, new customers can get enhanced odds of 4/1 on Arsenal to beat Newcastle. Again, for the same reasons as cited in the Boylesports offer, we don’t think this is the best enhanced odds offer, plus the maximum stake is £10. The second offer is a little more interesting. If a red card is shown in the Manchester United v Liverpool game, Bet Victor will refund certain markets losing bets, again up to the value of £10. Given the rivalry of this fixture, it’s a possibility this money-back offer will be triggered.

Betfair

Offer: Pick your own money back

Again, the televised Arsenal v Newcastle game is Betfair’s pick. Unlike Bet Victor, they are allowing you choose your own conditions for the refund, and the amount is a little larger at £25. The options you can pick from are an ‘Arsenal win’, ‘game ends in a draw’, or alternatively a ‘Newcastle win’. So all options basically(!) The last thing to note that this does not apply to the exchange bets.

Aguero is Favourite For The Premier League Top Goal Scorer This Season

aguero

We’re approaching half way through the season so we thought it would be a good opportunity to to check in and take a look at the top goal scorer market. Quite a few of the bookmakers are starting to withdraw the opportunity to bet on this market, based on the impressive form Aguero is in.

Favourite – Sergio Aguero

* Odds: 3/4
* Goals this season so far: 14
* Minutes of football played so far: 1053

When Aguero had to leave the field on Saturday, he was in tears at the prospect of missing the upcoming ‘must-win’ match Roma, and it’s no surprise. In fact, tears will be shed among Man City fans because  his form this season has been exceptional. The Argentinian has racked up 14 goals so far in the Premier League, an impressive feat considering Man City have played just 15 games this season. Fitness can be credited for a lot of his performance this season, so it will be interesting to see how he bounces back from his most recent ligament damage.

Second Favourite – Diego Costa

* Odds: 2/5
* Goals this season so far: 11
* Minutes of football played so far: 1007

At the end of last season, Mourinho claimed that a ‘killer striker’ was what Chelsea needed to challenge for the title this season, and made Costa his £32m addition to the squad. It looks like he was right. Chelsea’s unbeaten run came to an abrupt end versus Newcastle this weekend, but behind that form, has been Costa with 11 goals so far in 1007 minutes of football. At the moment he is second favourite, however if he can play more football that Aguero this season then he stands a good chance of emerging as the top goal scorer.

Third Favourite – Alexis Sánchez

* Odds: 6/1
* Goals this season so far: 9
* Minutes of football played so far: 1142

Arsenal’s season has been pretty grim, but Sánchez has provided a glimmer of hope. The £35m signing has been banging in the goals. Out of the top goal scorers, Sánchez has played the most football featuring in all of Arsenal’s games so far this season. That will come at a cost. Wenger said this week that he is going to rest him to maintain his form. After a slow start to the season, he has come to rescue Arsenal many times now, most recently with a last minute winner against Southampton. If Wenger can get by without leaning on him, the rest will better his long odds (compared to Aguero certainly) and therefore his chances of becoming the 2014/2015 Premier League top goal scorer.

These Are The December Weekend Offers From Betting Sites You Need To Know

celebratingspurs

Another weekend, another delivery of football. Neutrals will be drawn most to the fixtures on Saturday, as Super Sunday doesn’t feature any teams in the top four. West Ham will be looking to create some space between themselves and Arsenal to maintain their position in the league, whilst Villa have the opportunity to leapfrog Everton, facing bottom team Leicester themselves. Here are the betting offers that the bookmakers are running this weekend:

1. Bet Victor offer some enhanced odds 

Bet Victor are running a promotion of enhanced odds on a Manchester City win versus Everton on Saturday. The game is televised (Sky), and the Manchester City team have some form of late, with a late win versus Bayern Munich followed by some impressive away wins in the Premier League. You can get enhanced odds of 4/1 this weekend for them to continue their recent form, which looks pretty likely, but only if you’re a new customer with a maximum stake of £10. So if you don’t have an account, it looks like a solid way to turn £10 into £50.

2. Betfair are allowing you to pick your own cashback

Newcastle host league leaders Chelsea. Newcastle have surged up the table with a string of wins and clean sheets. However, that form looks to be stalling as Newcastle have picked up one point from a possible six in their last two games. Betfair have a promotion for both new and existing customers, allowing them to pick their own conditions for money-back. The options include ‘Chelsea win and both teams score’, ‘Newcastle win the game’, ‘game ends in a draw’, ‘Costa scores first’, and finally ‘Chelsea win by 2 goals exactly’. All pretty good options and hard to pick between. We’d probably avoid the ‘Chelsea win with both teams to score’ as Chelsea have managed to keep clean sheets in their last four fixtures.

3. Totesport double and treble

Totesport have an on-going promotion, offering double or in some instances, trebling the odds on first goal scorer markets. It applies to just the televised games, which this weekend are the previous games written of, Manchester City versus Everton and Newcastle versus Chelsea. The maximum bonus at £250 allows this one to particularly tasty. If you don’t have a Totesport account, you can also benefit from the same offer with Betfred.

4. £5 free in-play bet from Stan James

Again this is an on-going offer. If you bet £20 on any of the Saturday games, Stan James will give you a free £5 bet to use in either of the Sunday games. Specifically, the free £5 bet can only be used in the in-play markets, so don’t be able to have access to the free bet ahead of kick off.

 

Arsenal Go Into North London Derby As Favourites This Weeekend

arsenal-spurs_

Arsenal will be looking to bounce back after their mid week defeat to Southampton at the Emirates with a victory against Spurs this weekend. The mind games are already at play with Arsene Wenger warning Spurs that they will be under extra pressure should they build a new stadium, and that the process will come with unforeseen financial issues.

Wenger’s side have the confidence of bookmakers to win today. Currently you can get just odds of 3/4 on them to win, not much return for what historically has been a lively derby. If you don’t have a Betfair.com account already, there is a bit of value you can get. New customers can get odds of 6/1 on Arsenal to beat Spurs, there a free £10 bet on the Ryder Cup to boot. There is a maximum stake of £10,  and it is paid out as a free bet, but to be honest, given how likely an Arsenal win is today, it’s strong offer.

The game is on television which makes it eligible for PaddyPower.com’s ‘pick your own cash back’ offer.  Current triggers for cashback include Adebayor or Sanchez scoring at any moment, plus if its a draw or there is a goal in the last five minutes of the game. It is of course not the only game this weekend. In the early fixture, Liverpool face Everton in their own Derby.

BetVictor.com have an enhanced threefold accumulator for new customers. It’s on some of the 3PM fixtures, with them paying out 5/1 on Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City all to win. We know from hearing from you that Leicester’s victory against Manchester United last weekend pleased a lot of you, but unfortunately did mess up a lot of people’s accumulators. With Manchester United’s defence as it currently stands, we’d probably opt for the free £25 free bet offer instead!

Can The USA Pull Off An Upset In The Ryder Cup? A Simple ‘No’ Think Betting Sites

rory

It’s time to cast aside the Scottish Independence debates and unite through the power of the Ryder Cup. We remain one nation, and can share in our common interest of defeating the Americans. On Friday the biennial golfing competition kicks off and it’s the turn for Scotland to host.

At time of writing, Betway have Europe down as 2/5 favourites to lift the trophy which does not come as a surprise, especially when you think the Americans have not won on European soil in 21 years. Just when a little bit of optimism could sneak through, it is shut down with a couple of the offers betting sites have available. Betway.com are actually offering to refunds on the winner bets up to £25 if Europe loses outright. Skybet.com are running similar promotion, with a maximum refund of £150 and a few extra markets to bet on. Clearly, they have a lot of confidence in Europe being victorious.

One of the reasons for that confidence is current world number one Rory Mcilroy.  It is Rory who Tom Watson, the American captain aims to beat above all. Watson reckons targeting Mcilroy would deal Europe a physiological blow. If you’re looking to bet on the matches, PaddyPower.com have an offer for the Ryder Cup that will be of interest. They are offering money back as a free bet if your selection is winning after 12 holes, but fails to win the match. There is a maximum refund of £100 on that one.

If there are any new offers that go live between now and Friday, we’ll update the site. For now though, it is difficult to see the Americans pulling off an upset given the confidence of the bookmakers.

Paddy Power ‘Pick Your Own Money Back Special’ Explained

paddypowerpickyourown

Most weeks the bookmakers come up with a money back special to draw in new and existing customers. However, in September there is something a little different. Throughout September Paddy Power are running a promotion that enables customers to pick what money back special they want to apply on their bets. It’s for the games being broadcast on either Sky or BT. If you don’t know which games are on TV, don’t worry, there is a shiny red button on their website with ‘MBS’ on it to distinguish the games the offers apply to.

When we first saw the offer, we thought it Paddy Power were being crazy enough to allow customers to come up with their own specials, but that isn’t the case. Rather, you get a list of options. As can be seen above, for the Liverpool game one of the options is if Sterling scores at any point in the game. To find the offer, just go to the market which lists all of the ways it is possible to bet on a game. The special only applies to ‘scorecast’, ‘correct score’, ‘first goal scorer’ and ‘last goal scorer’ markets, and you place your bet within the promotional box. There is a maximum refund of £100 per customer so that should keep you busy.
