Premier League players know that Christmas and New Year’s Eve is not the time to relax and forget about competitive football, because this is when most of the games are scheduled. The best teams face each other twice each week and in the last days of December, some exciting games are planned. Ladbrokes runs the Christmas period promotion which consists of boosted odds and cashback deals.

Manchester United takes on depleted Newcastle, and the hosts are overwhelming favorites to defeat the visitors who are playing without eight key footballers. Ladbrokes has boosted the odds on Wayne Rooney to score first to 5/1 up from 4/1. The bookmaker makes a similar proposition to those who are willing to bet on Diego Costa to score the first goal in the match between Chelsea and West Ham. The odds stood at 5/2 and are now available at 7/2 to both new and existing customers.

Another way of maximizing your profits is by placing several wagers on the same betting slip. There are plenty who use accumulator bets to increase the odds and Ladbrokes provides them with the impetus to do so, by running a money back promotion. Those who bet on five or more FA Cup and selected European leagues games will be eligible for reimbursement if one of the selections lets them down. The money will be awarded in the form of a free bet which can be used on any of the upcoming matches.
