We’re just a few hours away from the start of a brand-new season of the Premier League and Ladbrokes wants to make this occasion memorable. The bookmaker offers above average odds on some of the most popular fixtures of the opening round, to give its members a head start.

One of the most anticipated games of this Premier League’s round is Arsenal vs Aston Villa and Ladbrokes has increased the odds for the hosts to prevail. They now pay 8/11 for Arsenal to win as long as the selection is placed in an accumulator featuring at least five games. The odds for Theo Walcott to be the first goalscorer were also increased from 9/2 to 8/1 and all players benefit from this boost, with no strings attached.

While football fans have their sights locked on the Premier league debut, the bookie doesn’t forget about cricket fans and The Ashes. They will return the wages on losing match bets if Ian Bell scores in the first innings of the fifth test play by England.

Paddy Power runs its own special promotion for the first round of the Premier League, refunding all losing bets if the favorites fail to win. Those who aim higher profits and don’t hesitate to take slightly higher risks will love the No Lose ACCA promo ran by the same bookie. By placing five Premier League bets on the same ticket, players can rest assured that if one of their selection loses, the money is refunded in the form of a free bet.
