Matched Betting Offers For The New Football Season
August 7, 2017
The 2017/18 English Football League season is underway and the Premier League follows suit this coming weekend. We’ve already seen some great incentives from the bookies but there are even better offers centred around the new top-flight campaign. There will likely be more promotions this week but here are the best matched betting offers for the new football season as things stand.
Ante Post Premier League Matched Betting Offers
Before we get into this section, it’s worth remembering that betting on season-long markets will tie up your betting bank until bets are settled in May 2018. If you’re new to matched betting and have a modest exchange balance, it’s advisable to be selective here and play maybe one or two ante post offers. However, if you’ve been matched betting a while, then you’ll likely have hundreds or even thousands in your exchange accounts and can get stuck right in.
The Unibet Double Up offer gives a £5 free bet every time your player scores twice in a match or a £10 free bet if they score three in a match. You’ll need to bet at least £30 on the Premier League Top Goalscorer market before 19:45 on Saturday 11th August 2017 to qualify. Using the previous goalscoring exploits of players like Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, we give this offer an Estimated Value (EV) of £30, providing you back a player of this calibre.
GentingBet offer a £2 free bet for every match your team wins up until 31st December. You’ll need to bet £25 or more on the Outright Winner of the Premier League before September 1st to qualify. Premier League teams play 21 games before 31st December, so there is the potential to earn up to £42 free bets from this offer. It’s unlikely that a team will have a 100% record by that point but the offer has an EV of £15, so is well worth the investment.
Bet £25 on the Premier League Top Goalscorer market with Sun Bets and get a £5 free bet for every game they score in up until 2 October. There are six game weeks for your chosen player to score, so we have given a conservative EV of £8. Ladbrokes has a similar offer that applies to goals scored in August which has an EV of £7. Again, it’s best to stick to the aforementioned ‘usual suspects’ when playing these goalscorer offers.
Place a £10 bet on any team to win the Premier League with Coral and receive a £5 free bet every time they win in August. Sticking to those at the head of the market gives an EV of £7 when playing this offer. Dabble Bet will give a £5 free bet every time your outright selection scores 3 or more in August, which has an EV of £3.50.
Both Paddy Power and Mintbet offer a free bet if your Premier League outright selection is top of the table at Christmas. While we haven’t given these offers a value, there’s potential to make a profit. Taking into account qualifying losses and free bet retention, should you hit the free bet then the Paddy Power offer will return roughly £14 and the Mintbet offer around £18.
Ongoing Football Matched Betting Offers
Paddy Power has also reinstated it’s popular 2 Up You Win promotion. With this offer, you’ll be paid as a winner as soon as your team takes a two goal lead, regardless of whether they go on to win or not. It means it’s possible to win both your bookmaker and exchange bet. It’s available on all Premier League and La Liga games, so is sure to be one of the most popular matched betting offers of the season.
There are some great bonus opportunities too. Such as Coral Win Win Get In, which pays double winnings up to £50 in free bets, if your team wins both halves in selected matches. Betfred Double Delight/Hat-Trick Heaven is another potentially lucrative promotion. Bet on the First Goalscorer market in nominated matches and receive double winnings if your winning selection scores twice, or treble winnings if he adds a third.
Ladbrokes Money Back if a Draw is a brilliant money back special. Online customers can qualify for a free bet on three markets for each qualifying match and Ladbrokes Grid Card holders can also play the Match Odds market. The EV is £5 per market, so it’s definitely an offer to look out for in 2017/18.
