Community Shield 2017: Choice of Enhanced Odds Offers for Arsenal v Chelsea

As one of the bigger curtain raisers to the 2017/18 campaign, Arsenal and Chelsea will face off at Wembley on Sunday for the right to claim the Community Shield. It’s seen as an important piece of silverware these days and a win for either side would certainly send a message out ahead of the new campaign.

After a quiet summer, there will be plenty of interest from a betting point of view as well and, there is already a good choice of new customer price boosts from around the books. Let’s take a look at the best of them.


Coral’s enhanced odds offer for Sunday’s game has Arsenal to win in 90 minutes at 33/1. In the open markets, that bet would come in at a best price of 49/20 with MarathonBet while Coral themselves are among a number of bookies who are currently quoting 9/4.

If it sounds like interesting and you want to take it up, sign up as a new customer to Coral via the link and register some basic details for a new account. Once this part of the process has been completed, Coral will take you to their cashier’s page where you must deposit a minimum of £5.00.

An important point to note with Coral offers is that you should not use Skrill, Neteller or PaySafeCard as these are not allowable under the terms of the promotion. Funding with a debit or credit card is preferable and your money should be cleared straight away.

At this point, stake the fixed amount of £1.00 on Arsenal to beat Chelsea in 90 minutes when they meet at Wembley on Sunday August 6, 2017. If that punt proves to be a winner, Coral will pay profits at that standard book price back into your account while the balance, up to the price boosted figure of 33/1, will come to you as free bet tokens.

Even if you lose, you will receive a free bet token at £5.00 but remember that with Coral, free bets have just four days of shelf life before they expire.

Paddy Power

Paddy Power are also covering the Community Shield with a new customer offer but here you can pick either Arsenal or Chelsea. Once again, the bet is for a win in 90 minutes and here you can claim either Chelsea at an enhanced 30/1 or Arsenal at an eye-catching 50/1.

The procedure is virtually identical to the Coral offer so sign up as a new customer and then make a deposit. This must be at a minimum of £10.00 this time and once again you should use a debit or credit card if possible.

With funds available, make your choice between the two offers and stake the fixed amount on either Arsenal or Chelsea to win the game in 90 minutes. Any profits at the Paddy book price come back to you in cash with the balance up to whichever enhanced figure is applicable, being issued as free bet tokens.

Please check the terms and conditions of both deals and the first important point to remember is that the offers are for the win in 90 minutes and do not take into account any extra time or penalties.

Both teams have been in good form in pre-season but it is hard to make a decision based on those friendly matches. Chelsea look the stronger side, even without Eden Hazard but as Arsenal proved in the Cup Final back in May, that might count for nothing on the day.

The choice is therefore yours but if you have made a decision on this weekend’s Community Shield, either, or possibly even both of these offers could lead to potentially bigger profits.
