Chelsea have made the perfect start under new manager Maurizio Sarri and after two games and two wins, it’s a trip to Newcastle for the Blues this Saturday. The home side, in contrast, have started 2018/19 slowly with just one point from their first two matches and Rafa Benitez’s side are the outside bet for three points here.
The odds on favourites for this game are Chelsea but new customers to Ladbrokes can make that figure far more interesting with an offer that takes the odds on the away win all the way up to 28/1*.
*18+ Eligible UK+IRE players. Min deposit £5. Paypal & some deposit types excl. Winning bets paid in cash at normal price. Enhanced odds paid in £5 free bets within 24 hours, valid for 4 days, stake not returned, restrictions apply. T&Cs apply
If you already have an account with Ladbrokes then unfortunately you can’t proceed and you would have to settle for their book price of 4/6. Elsewhere, you can improve on that slightly by taking the industry best of 7/10 with BetFred.
For reference, the result market is completed by the draw at a top price of 31/10 with MarathonBet and a win for Newcastle which is out at a best of 9/2 with BetBright.
Those are the numbers involved so here are the details of this 28/1 offer if you want to look at it more closely.
As this is exclusively for new customers to Ladbrokes, the first step is to register for a new account. If you qualify, you can head over via this link and on the other side is a very simple sign up form. This will only ask for the most basic of information but do remember to type in the Promo Code BLUES when prompted to do so.
Once this is all confirmed you should be taken to the cashier where you must make a minimum deposit of £5.00. Please use a debit or credit card to do this as most eWallets are excluded.
These preliminaries should only take a few minutes to complete and you’ll soon be able to move on and make that opening bet.
Betting and Payment
Check that the amount of your opening deposit is showing in your account before staking the fixed sum of £1.00 on this initial bet of Chelsea to beat Newcastle United when the teams meet at St James’s Park on Sunday August 26, 2018.
The game kicks off at 4pm UK time and is being shown live in the UK but whether you watch it or not, we just need Chelsea to come through with the three points. If that happens, payment works as follows:
In the event of a winning bet, an initial return will be paid in cash, based on Ladbrokes’ standard market price for a Chelsea win. You should see this arrive in your account shortly after the final whistle while the balance, up to the price boosted figure of 28/1, will then come back to you as a series of free bet tokens within 24 hours.
As an alternative, if the bet fails and Chelsea lose or the game is drawn, a free bet token worth £5.00 will be awarded instead. Please bear in mind that those tokens must be used up within 7 days and while that is a full summary of the main terms of this offer, you can check all ts and cs on the Ladbrokes promos page if you prefer.
Chelsea have form and momentum coming into this game with those two straight wins and they are the most logical bet. Newcastle have struggled in contrast but should have claimed victory at Cardiff after they were awarded an injury time penalty.
As it is, there is a five point gap between the two after just two games so while this isn’t a certain offer, it’s a strong proposition which comes with a superb enhanced odds figure of 28/1 for new Ladbrokes customers.
