This is by far the biggest game of the weekend in terms of Premier League fixtures and it’s therefore no surprise that the bookies are getting behind it with a good selection of offers and promotions. Chelsea and Manchester City have both made positive starts to the new campaign and should be battling it out for the title at the end of the season so Saturday’s match at Stamford Bridge is a vital one for both clubs.
Among the promos that have come through is a new customer deal from 888Sport which offers a choice: You can back either Chelsea or Manchester City and claim a great price boost if you win.
Here are the numbers along with details of how it works.
We’ve a fairly tight market going into this game with Manchester City listed as favourites at a best price of 153/100 with MarathonBet. Anyone looking for a Chelsea win in these standard markets would find best odds of 19/10 with 10Bet.
As for 888Sport, they have Chelsea at 7/4 but under the terms of this promotion that would lift up to 15/1. Meanwhile, the standard odds on Manchester City are 7/5 but will climb up to 12/1 under this offer. Clearly those are significant shifts and here’s how things work.
Remember that this is an offer for new customers so if you don’t already hold an account with 888 you can sign up via this link. Registration is a fast and simple process taking around a couple of minutes or so and from this point you would be taken to the 888Sport cashier.
Make your first deposit at the minimum level of £10.00 via a debit or credit card and then place your bet. Remember you can back either Manchester City or Chelsea here but you can’t select both so make your choice and then stake between £5.00 and £10.00 on the relevant outcome.
The game itself is the Saturday evening kick off, televised live by BT Sport in the UK so you can watch the action unfold and if you are a winner, here’s how you will be paid.
If your bet wins then profits at 888Sport’s book price – 7/4 for Chelsea or 7/5 for Manchester City – come back into your account as cash and this will hit once the game finishes.
The balance, up to whichever of the two price boosts is relevant, will then arrive as free bet tokens. These will hit your account within 72 hours and you then have 7 days in which to use these before they expire.
These are the main terms but feel free to check all ts and cs to make sure you are happy.
Picking a winner from this game isn’t going to be the easiest selection from the weekend’s list of matches but Chelsea v Manchester City is certainly going to be popular from a betting point of view.
City have won six straight matches in the league while Chelsea have dropped just two points in the same period so form is virtually identical. Hopefully you will have made your mind up because this is a great new customer offer from 888Sport with excellent enhanced odds on either side.
