Community Shield: Best Odds & Free Bets

Football

With the Premier League resuming in just over a weeks time, it's Community Shield time and a great opportunity to claim a few free bet offers before the season kicks off.

Community Shield 2015

Last seasons Premier League winners Chelsea take on FA Cup winners Arsenal in the 2015 Community Shield at Wembley at 3pm on Sunday the 2nd of August.

With two of the top teams in London playing in this season’s curtain raiser, it’s all set to be an exciting match and a welcome return for those eager to bet on football again.

Chelsea's Best Odds

Chelsea, who won last seasons Premier League by eight points, are online bookies favourites to beat Arsenal and win the 2015 Community Shield.

Chelsea have won four Community Shield titles throughout the history of the competition, and will be looking to add even more silverware to their trophy cabinet.

They’ve been playing fairly well in pre-season, but come into the Shield following an embarrassing loss against the Red Bulls who thrashed them 4-2 in a friendly.

Even after this confidence shaker, they’ll be determined to beat Arsenal, and start the new season on a high in their quest to retain their Premier League crown.

If you're betting on a Chelsea win, then 888sport.com offer the best odds at 7/5 as well as 'Treble Odds' offer for new account holders. Simply place a bet between £5 and £10 and if it wins, 888sport will pay out at treble the normal odds!

Arsenal's Best Odds

Arsenal won the FA Cup and secured third place in the Premier League last season and will be returning from Singapore following a successful Asia Trophy campaign.

Even though Arsenal won the Community Shield last year, and have a total of thirteen victories under their belt, bookies still have Chelsea as favourites to win and so there are some decent odds to be had for those betting on an Arsenal win.

If you think Arsenal can win then head over to Ladbrokes.com as they offer the best odds at 21/10, as well as a 'Bet £25, get £25 free' offer for all new account holders.

Community Shield Betting

Of course, online bookies offer lots of other great betting opportunities on the game other than straight win bets. If you fancy placing a bet on the result being a draw, Bet365.com offer the best odds at 12/5 as well as a matched bet worth up to £200 for new account holders.

You can also opt to use bookies free bet offers on the First Goalscorer, Correct Score or Half time/Full time betting markets to make the match even more exciting.
