Once again, the Premier League is the focal point of attention for sports betting enthusiasts, with bookmakers running generous promotions over the weekend. The reason for why they chose to double their efforts has to do with the fact that some games of critical importance will unfold on Saturday and Sunday. Lower divisions are not neglected and Ladbrokes offers odds of 6/1 on Bent to score the opening goal, up from 5/1.

Those who prefer to wager on the Ipswich versus Bournemouth fixture, will witness with satisfaction that the odds on Murphy to score first have been bounced to 7/1 up from 11/2. The same bookmaker is providing new customers with an incentive to open a real money account here, by increasing the odds on this rounds’ derby. Arsenal is narrow favorite to defeat Liverpool and Ladbrokes has odds of 5/1 for this outcome, while Liverpool to prevail will result in a paycheck of eight times the investment.

Betfair has two distinct offers for prospective customers, offering odds of 3/1 on Manchester United to defeat Aston Villa and the same value for Chelsea to triumph against Stoke. Assuming they lose the wager, it will be reimbursed in the form of a free bet and they will also be eligible for the traditional €100 bet bundle. The only downside is that players need to opt for one bonus or the other, as it is not possible to combine the two offers.
