Looking for a bet or an offer on this weekends football action, read our summary to find out where to go.

Derby Double

This Sunday sees two heavy weight clashes as Manchester United travel to Liverpool followed by the North London derby at the Emirates stadium where Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspurs.

The home of the Money Back bet – Paddy Power – is not going to disappoint as they are offering money back on all singles bets on the First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast markets that are place before kick-off for each of these games, up to £100, if the match ends in a draw. So if you have a view on either game then why not place a Correct Score bet safe in the knowledge that if the match ends in a draw you get your money back.

As Spurs have been keeping it tight at the back of late you may think that goals will be scarce so how about Arsenal at 1-0 with odds of 9.0, or 12.0 on Spurs for the same scoreline.

BetVictor are offering a money back special on their own, for the same markets and matches as above they are offering money back on bets of up to £25 if a red card is shown, for each game. This is a top offer given that tempers will be flaring in these derby matches and also when we take into account that there was a red card in each game last season. They are offering 11.5 on a 2-1 win to Manchester United which is a repeat of last seasons score.


For those who think that Man City will thump Hull but are not tempted by the short odds on a City win may instead fancy taking a punt at Paddy Power’s Mythical Matches bets. Here Paddy creates matches between two teams not facing each other with the result decided by the goals the team score in their real-life match. In the Mythical Man City vs. Arsenal match for this weekend City are priced at 1.53, not a bad shout if your expect Spurs to keep it tight and Man City to go for the jugular.

Longer Term Bets

William Hill have Alan Pardew down as favourite at 3.75 for the Next Premier League Manager To Leave this can be found under their Specials section for Football.
