Liverpool v Stoke Odds
The opening fixture of the 2013/14 Premier League season will see Liverpool take on Stoke at 12.45pm. With 18 English Championships, 7 FA Cup Titles and 8 League Cup wins under their belt, bookies offer strong odds on Liverpool as well decent odds on wether they'll make it through to the Champions League this time.

Swansea v Man Utd Odds
The Swansea v Man Utd game takes place at 17.30pm and naturally bookies have Man Utd as clear favourites to win. You won’t find amazing odds on a United win (most bookies offer odds of just 10/11) so it’s best to consider other ways to use free bet offers on this fixture.
We recommend looking at the first goalscorer or correct soccer betting market as it's here we're you'll find the most competitive odds. If you fancy betting on Swansea, then Coral offers the best odds on them winning at 10/3 as well as a £50 free bet offer for new account holders.

Man City v Newcastle Odds
Man City v Newcastle play on the 19th at 20.00pm and again betting odds on bookies favourites Man City are pretty short. You never know how Man City will start the season and so a good free bet option might be to go for the draw.
