As the Premier League returns, the sportsbooks have so far covered all the live televised games in terms of enhanced odds offers. Watford and Liverpool will get things underway this Saturday in the lunchtime kick off and it’s Ladbrokes who are getting behind this one with a great 25/1 price boost on the Reds.

This is a new customer promotion and, in the event of a Liverpool win, it will take their odds on price up to that far more interesting figure of 25/1.

Big spenders

Both of these sides have invested heavily in their squads ahead of the new season but naturally all of the focus will be on Liverpool this weekend. The club faces a battle to keep hold of Philippe Coutinho amid interest from Barcelona but manager Jurgen Klopp has brought in Mohamed Salah and the squad already looks significantly stronger this season.

Watford have also spent big money this summer with Andre Gray the latest recruit and it should be a more positive campaign for the Hornets who spent much of last season flirting with relegation. For Saturday’s game however, Watford are very much an outside bet at best odds of 11/2 with bet365 while Liverpool are at 4/7 with SkyBet and the draw quoted at 16/5 with Paddy Power and SunBets.

With 25/1 from Ladbrokes on the table for a Liverpool victory, it has to be worth a second look at that enhanced figure.

Settled side

Liverpool enjoyed a much more productive campaign under Jurgen Klopp and have only made a couple of essential changes to their squad ahead of the new 2017/18 season.

In contrast, Watford have seen more of an overhaul and could this new look side need time to gel as a unit? We often talk about first games of a new football season and how hard they can be to bet on but Liverpool have the quality in what looks to be a settled squad. There are never any guarantees of course but this looks to be a very strong enhanced odds offer for new customers to Ladbrokes.
