The Premier League takes full attention this weekend after last week's FA Cup and a dramatic week of European action, so look at some of the best offers bookmakers provide to take advantage of when betting on the latest league action.

League Cup winners Chelsea head the way still by five points with a game in hand over Manchester City, Arsenal now heading the tight gaggle battling for third ahead of Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham and Southampton who are separated by just five points.

Matches broadcast live this weekend start with Crystal Palace v Queens Park Rangers at 12:45pm (BT Sports) on Saturday, before Manchester City travel to Burnley at 5:30pm looking to trim the gap at the top (Sky Sports 1).

Sunday's pair of televised Premier League games will be broadcast on Sky Sports 1, league leaders Chelsea inviting Southampton to Stamford Bridge at 1.30pm before Manchester United take on Tottenham in an intriguing 4.00pm contest at Old Trafford.

With plenty to ponder over, we look at some of the best promotions provided by the bookmakers that will help you make a bigger profit on this weekend's televised Premier League ties.

Betfred Double Delight/Hat-trick Heaven

The 'Bonus King' that is Betfred of course hold the card of their long-standing Double Delight/Hat-trick Heaven promotion, applying to selected televised football matches that this week includes three games on Saturday, two Sunday fixtures and Monday night's clash between Swansea City and Liverpool.

The way the promotion works is simple; if your chosen first goalscorer of an eligible match scores the first goal, then goes on to score another, Betfred will double your first goalscorer price. Should they net a third to complete the hat-trick, the original odds will be trebled.

Chelsea's Diego Costa will be popular in the first goalscorer markets against Southampton having netted 17 goals in 21 league appearances, although the 4.00pm tie on Sunday may be the best place for punters to profit thanks to Tottenham's star performer, Harry Kane.

Kane has been deadly in front of goal this season

Spurs' prolific 21-year-old striker has netted eight goals in his last nine games in all competitions, including braces during that time against West Brom, local rivals Arsenal and most recently against QPR at Loftus Road.

With that kind of form and the Red Devils' defence still looking frail, it is very much worth noting that Kane is 5-1 with Betfred to score first against Manchester United. As mentioned, this price would then become 10-1 for a brace and as high as 15-1 should he go on to bag his first league hat-trick of the season.

Sergio Aguero will be expected to add to his tally of 17 goals as Manchester City play Burnley on Saturday, Daniel Sturridge likewise back on form for Liverpool since his return from a lengthy injury spell on the sidelines.

Betway Late Goal Insurance

When discussing Tottenham this season, much has been said of their ability to snatch victory in the dying stages of a match.

How true is this? Well, after Kane famously salvaged a 2-2 draw against West Ham last month, the stats say that Tottenham have rescued 13 points this season due to goals scored after 85 minutes - seven more than anybody else.

The stereotype that Spurs like to leave it late does seem to be trending, so it is well worth considering Betway's late goal insurance offer if you fancy backing Manchester United to come out on top this Sunday afternoon.

Place a single bet of £5 or greater on either the correct score or half-time/full-time with the bookmaker and, if your bet loses due to a goal scored after the 85-minute mark, you will receive the luxury of a refund in the form of a free bet.

This matches your stake of up to £25 maximum and the offer also applies to Bundesliga and La Liga games during the 2014/15 season.

What If There Is A Draw?

When discussing previous results between Manchester United and Tottenham, 25.8% of matches between the two have ended in a draw, including three of the last four.

The last time they met was no different, that tie ending 0-0 prior to the New Year.

When considering the other televised matches this weekend, Manchester City could only secure a draw with Burnley last time they met, while Southampton's Sadio Mane ensured that Chelsea could only muster a 1-1 draw at St Mary's earlier this season.

Chelsea could only scrape a 1-1 draw with Southampton previously

With this in mind, it's well worth looking towards Vernons Sports who will offer money back as free bet on losing first goalscorer stakes of up to £50 if your match ends in a score draw.

Should a dreary 0-0 be the final result, Bet365 customers taking a punt on any football tie will have the luxury of full cash concessions on bets placed on the Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time or Scorecast market.

Paddy Power 20% Acca Win Boost

Paddy Power not only offer a very generous £30 free bets welcome offer for joining, but also a 20% free bonus on top of any winnings made from an accumulator of five or more selections.

A maximum £1,000 free bonus can be claimed from this offer, which applies also to English Championship, English League 1, English League 2, FA Cup, Capital One Cup, Scottish Premiership and Johnstones Paint Trophy matches.

Several bookmakers also offer acca insurance if one leg lets you down from a specific number of selections stated, easing the pain should you be thwarted by one loss.
