Betting Special: Get a £20 risk free bet from BetBright to start the new Premier League season

The online bookmaker are giving Goal readers the chance to have a bet of up to £20 on this weekend's Premier League action and if it loses they'll give you your money back
The new Premier League season is just around the corner and the first weekend of fixtures promises some intriguing encounters.

BetBright are offering all new customers the chance to have a bet up to the value of £20 risk free. If your first sportsbook bet losses they will simply refund your account, matching your stake up to £20.

The opening game on Saturday sees Louis van Gaal take charge of his first league game after being appointed as Manchester United boss before the World Cup began.

BetBright make the home side just 1/3 (1.35) to see off the Swans and Van Gaal is 17/4 (5.25) to lead United to the title at the first time of asking. Swansea are 15/2 (8.87) to cause an opening-day upset.

With no European football and more signings expected before the end of the summer transfer window, United could be an interesting bet this season.

BetBright also offer title betting without the two favourites Manchester City and Chelsea, where United are 13/10 (2.30) in the 2014/15 Premier League odds, which could appeal to punters who believe they could be the best of the rest but may not have enough to get the better of the market frontrunners.

Arsenal are also short price favourites to get off to a winning start and after their 3-0 Community Shield win it's of little surprise to see them at just 1/4 (1.27) to beat Crystal Palace. The Eagles are the biggest price on the coupon this week, available at 11/1 (12.0) to shock the Emirates crowd on Saturday evening.

Both Premier League meetings last season ended in a 2-0 win for Arsene Wenger's side and a repeat of that scoreline is a 19/5 (4.80) chance with the same firm. BetBright will also refund losing bets on the correct score and scorecast markets if any live TV game this weekend ends in a draw.

New signing Alexis Sanchez has joined the Gunners over the summer and the former Barcelona man is 13/1 (14.0) to win the top goalscorer prize. BetBright will double the odds of winning first goalscorer wagers if the opening goal is within 15 minutes, that would see punters who backed Sanchez to open his account at 7/2 (4.50) would be paid out at 8/1 (9.0).

Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren have all swapped Southampton for Liverpool in this transfer window and the Reds are 4/11 (1.38) to get the better of the Saints in Sunday's first live game. Phillipe Coutinho starred in his side's 4-0 win over Borussia Dortmund last Sunday and the Brazil international is 2/1 (3.0) to find the net against a Southampton side that are 15/2 (8.50) to give Ronald Koeman his first three points of his Premier League career

St James' Park is where Manchester City start their title defence and at 8/13 (1.66) they will have plenty of support from punters. The last five league meetings between the two sides have all been won by City with an aggregate score of 15-1. The visitors can be backed at 9/5 (2.84) to notch at least three times on Sunday.
