Man City will wrap up a second consecutive title if they beat Brighton at the Amex on Sunday and they are heavy favourites to do so. If they can pull it off, they will become the first team since Man Utd a decade ago to successfully defend the Premier League crown. The pressure is on, as Liverpool are just one point behind and poised to capitalise on any potential slip-ups from Pep Guardiola’s men. Man City have won all three games against Brighton since the Seagulls were promoted to the top flight and they have the quality to win this one, after embarking on a 13-game winning streak to seize control of their own Premier League destiny. They are just 1/6 to win it, but Mansion Bet is offering boosted odds of 30/1 on them. You must deposit £10 into a new account in order to qualify and your stake is capped at £1, while winnings at the boosted odds take the form of free bets. Mansion Bet will also give you a £50 first deposit bonus in a separate offer.
Bet Victor is running an identical offer on a Man City win over Brighton, and it also has 30/1 on Liverpool beating Wolves in a separate promotion. That looks a slightly tougher task, as Wolves are 10 places above Brighton in the table and head into this game in strong form. But it takes place at Anfield, which Liverpool have turned into a fortress this season. Spirits will be high after the Reds thrashed Barcelona 4-0 in midweek to surge into the Champions League final against all odds, and they have the quality and tenacity to beat Wolves here.
Sportingbet will give away a bonus of £250 to the punter that places the most winning bets on its mobile site or app each month. It is judged on the volume of winning bets you place, rather than the amount of cash you win in total. To qualify, the bet must have a minimum stake of £5, and it encompasses singles, multiples, pre-match and in-play, with no minimum odds. The £250 takes the form of free bets.
Bet365 continues to bill itself as the world’s favourite online betting company and a lot of that success is down to the strength of its promotions. As of next season, betting firms can no longer advertise during pre-watershed football matches, so there will be no sign of Ray Winstone urging you to “bet in play now!” at half-time, so promotions will be an increasingly important tool. The gold standard for the site is the £100 first deposit bonus it gives you. The bookmaker will match your first deposit 100%, from £5 all the way up to £100, so if you deposit £100 when you sign up for a new account you will have £200 to play with.
Betfair is also tapping into this by offering a 100% first deposit bonus from £5 up to £50 for its sportsbook. It used to offer a 50% deposit bonus, but now it will match your deposit, signalling that it has become more generous in order to compete with ambitious rivals.
