Friday night sees the first game of a new Premier League season as a strong Manchester United side prepare to host Leicester City at Old Trafford. The two teams have produced entertaining affairs in the past with plenty of goals to we should be able to look forward to a thrilling curtain raiser.
In terms of the result, Manchester United are red hot, odds on favourites so it could be a good time for new customers to get on board with Ladbrokes. On the table is a price boost of 28/1* in the event of a home win or a consolation of a £5.00 free bet token if it doesn’t land.
It’s a strong promo but how does it compare with the standard markets?
*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
Existing customers to Ladbrokes can currently get just 2/5 on a Manchester United victory while the best odds from around the sportsbooks are the 7/15 from 10Bet. Completing the market is the draw at a top price of 73/20 with MarathonBet while victory for Leicester City is out at a best of 8/1.
Those are the numbers and if you were looking to get behind United here, the 28/1 price boost could prove to be a generous one. If you want to take it further, here’s what needs to happen.
As a new customer exclusive, the first thing to take care of here is registration. You can head across via the link to complete a fast and simple sign up and while you input all of the essential information, please remember to type the Promo Code UNITED when prompted to do so.
This should all be validated and confirmed in around five minutes and at that point, you should find yourself at the cashier’s page where we need some funds to cover the bet. There is a minimum deposit set here at £5.00 via a debit or credit card so pick your preferred plastic, add that amount or more and then you’re ready to place that opening bet.
Staking and Payment
Funds are expected to clear straight away and once that happens, you can stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on Manchester United to beat Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday August 10, 2018. The game kicks off at 8pm UK time and is covered live by Sky Sports for those who want to catch it in real time.
In the event of a winning bet, Ladbrokes will pay out in the following two part process provided that Manchester United take all three points.
The first part of your profit will be paid in cash and this will be based on the standard price that Ladbrokes have down for the win in 90 minutes. You should see this show up in your account shortly after the final whistle while the balance, up to the enhanced odds sum of 28/1, comes back as free bet tokens within 24 hours.
We mentioned the consolation of a £5.00 free bet token as the alternative and this will be paid if Manchester United lose or the game is drawn. You can, if you prefer, check all ts and cs on the Ladbrokes offers page but those are the main points and finally, please note that those free bet tokens must be used within 4 days or they will expire.
What are the Chances?
It’s the first game of the season so we have no form to take into account here but clearly Manchester United have the stronger squad in this match. Leicester have lost Riyad Mahrez and may face a battle to keep Harry Maguire and even Jamie Vardy before the window closes so it could be a long season for the Foxes.
It’s not a certain offer but it’s definitely a strong prospect with a great price of 28/1 which could lead to excellent profits for new Ladbrokes players.
