Arsenal v Leicester City: Choice of Offers to Kick off the New Season

Arsène Wenger vs. Craig Shakespeare

Premier League football is back day earlier than usual this season with the live TV cameras scheduling a Friday night game to kick things off in style. Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates in a game that gives either side the perfect opportunity to get three points under their belt ahead of the rest of the weekend’s action.

Leicester won the title in 2015/16 and finished the previous campaign strongly under Craig Shakespeare but Arsenal are very short favourites for this. With a best of 8/15 available for the Gunners with Betway and 188Bet, there should certainly be some interest in the following new customer deals that have landed from around the sportsbooks.


In the open markets, Coral are one of a number of bookies quoting a price of 4/9 on Arsenal to take the win on Friday but new account holders here could boost that up to 25/1. If you aren’t a customer here and that sounds tempting, the next step is to sign up via the link and register for a new account with just a few basic details.

Coral will then take you to their cashier but remember to avoid using Skrill, Neteller or PaySafe at this stage as these eWallets are excluded from the promotion. Look to fund the minimum required amount of £5.00 with a debit or credit card if possible.

Funds should clear straight away and you should then stake the fixed bet amount of £1.00 on Arsenal to beat Leicester City when the two teams meet on Friday August 11, 2017. Watch the game unfold – it’s live on Sky in the UK – and if you are a winner, you will be paid in two steps.

Returns at Coral’s book price – currently 4/9 – will be paid as straight cash and you can carry on betting right away with that if you want to. The balance, up to that quoted price boost of 25/1, will then be returned as free bet tokens and you have just four days to use them before they expire.

Even if your bet were to lose and Arsenal drew or lost the game, Coral would issue a free bet token worth £5.00 by way of a consolation.

Paddy Power

The only key difference between Paddy Power’s offer and that of Coral’s is that the enhanced odds price under this promotion is 20/1. It’s a little lower therefore and you don’t get a consolation if it loses, but if you don’t already hold an account here then it’s still worth aiming for.

Once again, it’s for new customers so sign up via the link, make a deposit of at least £5.00 with a debit or credit card and stake up to a maximum of £1.00 on Arsenal to win this match. Paddy also have a current book price of 4/9 on an Arsenal victory so you get returns at that figure with the balance being paid out in free bet tokens.

Do remember to check all of the tcs and cs and pay particular attention to the free bet rules which differ between these two.

New games of any campaign can often be hard to predict but Arsenal have looked good in pre-season games which culminated in that Community Shield victory over Premier League Champions Chelsea. Arsene Wenger’s side look stronger with the acquisition of Alexandre Lacazette and when you add in home advantage, they could be a good bet for Friday night’s curtain-raiser.

If you agree then either, or possibly both of these enhanced odds deals for new customers could lead to a significantly higher return on profits.
