The fixture list was particularly unkind to Arsenal at the start of the 2018/19 season and after hosting Manchester City last weekend, the Gunners must now travel across London to face local rivals Chelsea.
The Blues got their own campaign off to a winning start with a 3-0 victory away to Huddersfield and Maurizio Sarri’s side start as favourites for this Saturday evening kick off. Arsenal will provide a tougher test but for those who were looking to back Chelsea, Coral have a new customer offer* which will make their odds far more interesting.
*18+ UK+IRE players signing up via promo page. Min deposit £5. Paypal & some deposit methods excl. Paid in cash at normal price. Enhanced odds paid in £5 free bets within 24 hrs, valid for 4 days, stake not returned, restrictions apply. T&Cs apply.
A big price boost of 28/1 is available if Chelsea take all three points here and it’s a figure that compares strongly with the open markets. The home side are an odds on option right across the board and the best industry price available is the 5/6 listed by Black Type.
For reference, the draw is the next available option at best odds of 31/10 with MarathonBet while a number of bookies, including 10Bet have 7/2 on an Arsenal victory. Those are the numbers involved and here are details of the Coral offer for those who want to take it further.
How It Works
Because the offer is exclusively for new customers to Coral the first point to take care of is registration. New players can head across from this link and complete a simple sign up process which, once submitted across a secure server, should be confirmed in around five minutes.
Next is a trip to the cashier where you will need to make a deposit of at least £5.00. The important point to note here is that most eWallets are excluded so please don’t attempt to add funds using Skrill, Neteller and PaySafe as you will not be able to take up the offer.
We suggest using a debit or credit card as these are acceptable and will let you move immediately on to the next phase.
Making the Bet
Check that the funds are showing up in your account and then find the ‘Your Enhanced Markets’ section at the top right of the homepage. Stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on this opening bet of Chelsea to beat Arsenal when the teams meet at Stamford Bridge on Saturday August 18, 2018.
The game kicks off at 17:30 UK time and it’s covered live by BT Sport if you want to watch it unfold but whatever you do, as long as we get a Chelsea win, you will be paid out as follows.
Profits are paid in two stages with an initial return landing in your account as a cash payment, based on Coral’s standard market price for a Chelsea victory. This will appear shortly after the final whistle while the remainder, up to that price boosted sum of 28/1, is issued as a series of free bet tokens within 24 hours.
There is a consolation too because, if Arsenal win here or the game is drawn, a £5.00 free bet token will be coming your way to soften the blow. Please note that those tokens have to be used within 4 days and while we’ve given you a full rundown of the main points here, you can check all terms and conditions on the Coral offers page if you prefer.
It’s still very early in the season and while Arsenal went down at home on the opening day, they were playing the Premier League Champions and not too many teams will be taking points off Manchester City in this campaign.
Chelsea were impressive in seeing off Huddersfield Town and look to have good balance in the side following their summer signings. It could be a tight game and this offer isn’t certain but if you are new to Coral and were looking to get behind the home side, those 28/1 enhanced odds represent exceptional value.
