It’s been a shaky start to the new season for both Arsenal and West Ham and after just two games, neither team has picked up a single point. Those results leave the sides at the wrong end of the table and while it’s still very early days, a win would be most welcome on Saturday.
But who will take the points from this all-London Derby at the Emirates? Whatever your opinion might be, if you make a correct prediction then this new customer offer from 888Sport* could increase the standard market prices and turn them into something far more interesting.
*New customers only. £10 minimum deposit using promo code “888ODDS” required. Qualifying bet must be placed at the normal odds Min bet £5, max bet £5. Extra winnings paid in FREE BETS and added within 72 hrs of qualifying bet settlement. Free bet stakes not included in bet returns. Free bets expire 7 days after credit. This offer may not be combined with any other offer. Deposit balance is available for withdrawal at any time. General deposit method & withdrawal restrictions apply & full T&C’s apply
Either / Or
Under the terms of this offer, new 888 account holders can either back an Arsenal win and get a price boost of 6/1 or, they can put their money behind West Ham and lift that all the way up to 40/1. It’s not possible to take both teams but those numbers represent a significant increase on the open market prices.
Arsenal are the clear favourites and available at industry best odds of 2/5 with Black Type while the Hammers are very much the outside bet at 8/1 with 10Bet. For reference, the draw is listed at a top price of 91/20 with MarathonBet but we don’t want that scenario to land.
If you have made a choice and you qualify for this deal, here’s how it all works.
Because this offer is exclusively for new customers to 888Sport, the first thing to take care of is registration. You can head across from here to complete this and after providing some very basic information, you should expect to be validated and confirmed as a new 888 customer in just a few minutes.
Once this is complete, click on the deposit button if you aren’t automatically taken to the cashier. At this stage, you should add funds of at least £10.00 and we suggest using either a debit or credit card as 888Sport exclude their eWallets from this offer.
As a final point to note, please input the Promo Code 888ODDS when asked to do so and you’re good to move on.
Making the Bet
Those funds are set to clear straight away and then you must make a choice between Arsenal or West Ham United to win this game. It’s a traditional 3pm kick off on Saturday August 25 and once you’ve made that decision, stake the fixed sum of £5.00 on the specific outcome.
If, at the end of 90 minutes, you’ve made a correct call, payment will come back to you in a two part process which works as follows:
In the first instance, a return will be paid to you in cash and this will be based on the related win price in 888Sport’s standard market. This part of the profit is set to come in just after the game comes to an end while the balance, up to whichever of the two price boosts is applicable, will arrive as free bet tokens within 72 hours.
Do look out for those tokens as they usually arrive much sooner and once they land, you will have 7 days in which to use them before they expire. That completes our round up of the main points of this offer but you are free to check all terms and conditions as they appear on the 888 promotions page.
Early Form Guide
As we’ve already seen, both teams have dismal form coming into this match with two defeats apiece. It could be argued that Arsenal have played much stronger opposition in Manchester City and Chelsea and while West Ham had a tough away trip to Liverpool on the opening day, they would have expected to take at least a point from their home fixture with Bournemouth.
Arsenal would seem the most likely option but we’ve already seen some surprise results in the first two weeks of the EPL. The choice is yours but the enhanced odds for a correct prediction are unlikely to be beaten.
