The Premier League is back as the usual suspects to fight for the title aim to kick things off with a win.
Getting the new campaign off to the best possible start is imperative in setting the tone for months ahead, and Paddy Power are offering new customers the chance to back Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City to secure all three points this week.
The Gunners have been increased to 20/1 (21.0) to beat Leicester City, with Liverpool 25/1 (26.0) to see off Watford and title favourites Manchester City to down Brighton & Hove Albion at 20/1 (21.0).
While these fixtures may seem fairly straightforward on paper, it is early days in the season yet and hiccups are always possible as teams shake off the cobwebs of the summer. Therefore, Paddy Power’s £1 max stake with these offers ensure near zero risk for those backing them.
To take up these enhanced quotes, simply register using the links provided and place your first bet on your choice at the usual odds. If your pick wins, then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced value after the final whistle. Winnings paid in free bets. T&C's apply.
The Gunners begin their season versus a team they have enjoyed a 21-game unbeaten streak against. Arsenal have beaten Leicester City in 10-straight Premier League matches at home, their longest streak against a single opponent.
Led by the mercurial Alexandre Lacazette - who scored 91 Ligue 1 goals across four seasons, the most of any player in that period - Arsene Wenger’s men will feel confident of turning around their negative record of just one win in their last seven opening day fixtures. Buoyed by their Community Shield win over Chelsea, the Emirates Stadium crowd know they have a competitive team to count on this term.
Arsenal begin their season aiming to reclaim their status as one of England’s top four clubs and seeing off the resurgent 2015 Premier League champions will go a long way towards that. To that end, Paddy Power’s 20/1 (21.0) with £1 max stake is worth serious consideration for new customers.
Jurgen Klopp’s men similarly begin their campaign against a team they have enjoyed good fortunes against. Liverpool have won their last three games against Watford with a goal difference in their favour of eight.
The Reds have reinforced wisely and looked impressive in pre-season, putting them in a good position to continue their Premier League run of three wins without conceding a single. It’s unclear how Barcelona’s pursuit of Coutinho will affect their preparations, of course, but the basis is there in team to ensure a competitive display at Vicarage Road.
Liverpool are riding on the positive streak of three wins from four of their last Premier League opening day games, and they are a convincing pick to seal their next one at 25/1 (26.0) odds with £1 max stake for new Paddy Power customers.
Pep Guardiola’s title favourites could not have asked for an easier way to open their campaign. Manchester City take on newly-promoted Brighton & Hove Albion seeking their seventh straight opening day win to extend their competition record, with Sergio Aguero proving particularly prolific in that time.
The heavily-reinforced Etihad Stadium outfit have thoroughly impressed in pre-season, recovering spectacularly from a 2-0 loss to Manchester United in their first friendly and demonstrating a perfect balance of newfound steel as well as attacking flamboyance to cement their tag as the odds compilers top pick to be crowned English champions.
Indeed, there could be fewer better examples of a David versus Goliath encounter, making odds of 20/1 (21.0) with £1 max stake on a City win unmissable for new Paddy Power customers.
