Betting Special: Get up to £450 in free bets for the new Premier League season

With the new Premier League season just around the corner there are some great free bet offers and money back offers available through Goal's betting partners

Arsenal got their hands on the first silverware of the new season thanks to an emphatic 3-0 win over Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday but Manuel Pellegrini's side are still well-fancied by the bookmakers to challenge for a third Premier League title in four seasons.

City are 5/2 to finish top of the table this season behind 19/10 favourites Chelsea. Manchester United have been well backed from 8/1 into 5/1 since the announcement that Louis van Gaal would be taking over at Old Trafford ahead of the new campaign. Arsenal come next in the market at around 6/1 with Liverpool double the price to go one better than their second place finish last season.

bet365 - first deposit bonus of up to £200

bet365's first deposit bonus is one of the most flexible offers available. The bonus can be broken down and used in smaller parts which should enable punters of all levels to benefit from a significant bankroll boost ahead of the new Premier League season.

For example, a new customer with an average stake of £5 who deposits £50 into a new bet365 account would not only be able to take advantage of great specials and money back offers, but they would also be able to use their £50 bonus in whatever amounts they want to, based on an average bet stake of £5 that's 10 free bets.

If multiples are part of your betting arsenal then bet365's Euro Soccer Bonus should be of interest. Winning accumulators will be subject to a bonus of up to 100 per cent and the offer includes top domestic leagues such as the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga plus the Champions League too.

Involved in the correct score, half time/full time or scorecast markets on a match that finishes 0-0? bet365's Bore Draw Money Back offer will see all losing bets refunded if the match finishes goalless.

With all these benefits plus live streaming of matches from around the globe, it makes sense to take advantage of bet365's generous first deposit bonus if you haven't already.

Paddy Power - up to £250 in free bets

New Paddy Power customers will get their first five wagers matched in value with free bets, up to £50. The bookmaker also offer a huge range of Money Back Specials on the biggest matches which see millions of pounds refunded to losing customers each year. There's also a 20% bonus of winning accumulators of five selections or more.

If you're looking to get involved in the Premier League top goalscorer market then Paddy Power's latest offer could prove interesting. Anyone placing a bet of £20 (either £20 win or £10 each way) on this market will automatically be credited with a £2 free bet every time their selection scores a goal. So if your pick fires 15 league goals this season then that's £30 in free bets.
