The big Monday night game in the Premier League sees West Ham host struggling Arsenal at the London Stadium. The Gunners are winless in nine games and exceptionally low on confidence, but West Ham’s form is also dreadful. Both defences are poor and it could turn into a goal fest. Paddy Power will give new customers a £5 free bet on every Champions League game taking place on Tuesday if you wager £10 on that West Ham v Arsenal match. That amounts to £40 in free bets, covering Champions League fixtures like Inter Milan v Barcelona, Salzburg v Liverpool and Chelsea v Lille. Some teams are already through to the knockout stages of the tournament, so there is great value to be had in opposing them on Tuesday.

If you are keen to try your hand at wagering on the Betfair Exchange, it will give you a £20 or €20 risk-free bet. New customers can place a bet up to that value on the exchange, and if it loses you will get a refund in cash. That allows you to withdraw your money and walk away if you decide exchange betting is not for you. It allows you to pit your wits against fellow punters, while Betfair simply takes a commission. A smaller rival, Smarkets, is also offering what it bills as up to £100 in risk-free bets on Premier League matches. Betfair is a sister site to Paddy Power, which also runs a £20 or €20 risk-free welcome bonus offer.

Betfred and 888 Sport are both running bet £10 get £40 sign-up bonus offers. Betfred’s requires you to deposit £10 into a new account and wager it on a sports market where the odds are evens (2.0) or greater. Within 10 hours it will you free bets worth £40. You must bet at least £10 in every transaction when using this promotion. Previously £10 of the free bets in Betfred’s promotion would have to go on casino games, but now any bet qualifies. 888 Sport’s offer might be more tempting, as you only need to stake £10 at odds of 1/2 (1.50) in order to qualify, which gives you greater choice. However, one catch is that £10 out of your £40 in free bets must go on horse racing.

Ladbrokes and Coral are also offering 400% welcome bonuses. You simply deposit £5 into a new account, wager it at odds of 1/2 (1.50) or greater and then you unlock four £5 free bets, which can be used on any market. If you are looking for a larger free bet offer, Bet365 continues to run its flagship promotion, which matches your first deposit up to £100. William Hill was matching that offer for a couple of weeks, but it has now reverted to its classic bet £10 get £30 offer. This sees you awarded £30 in free bets after placing a qualifying wager at 1/2 (1.50) or greater. Betway has a very similar offer, but the minimum qualifying odds must be 3/4 (1.75).
