Bookmakers are offering free bets and special offers for the Barclays Premier league this coming season.
Sky Sports, whose live football coverage has generated much interest in football betting markets, announced their first set of live Barclays Premier League fixtures late this morning.
Sky Sports channels will show 115 live Premier League games this season and today’s announcement provides details of the first set of 44 games up until the end of November.
The season will kick off with Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City on Saturday August 14th. These two clubs will be pushing harder this year after going close to breaking up the Premier League triumvirate of Chelsea, Man Utd and Arsenal last season.
Man City will continue in their efforts to buy the Premier League trophy and recently confirmed the signing of world class holding midfielder Yaya Toure from Barcelona.
Man Utd fan Fred Done, boss at bookmaker BetFred is sticking his neck out offering best odds of 6/1 for Man City to win the Barclays Premier League.
The first Super Sunday, 15th August, features Liverpool v Arsenal, a fixture neither club would have wanted so early in their campaign. An away win for Arsenal would surely see their Premier League odds shorten, they are currently 7/1 with BetFred.
Monday night Premier League returns on 16th August with 2009/2010 runners up Man Utd hosting Coca Cola Champions Newcastle Utd at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils will be looking to get off to a flying start against the league newcomers, Bodog are offering 5/2 for Man Utd to reclaim the Premier league crown from current Champions Chelsea.
Newcastle will be content to escape without too much embarrassment, with little funds to significantly strengthen the squad they are 10/3 to be relegated with Paddy Power.
