The Premier League returns this weekend and to kick-off the new season, Paddy Power has a particularly tasty Money-Back Special.

If the favourite in any Premier League game this weekend fails to win then Paddy Power will refund all losing first/last goal-scorer and correct score bets on that game.

Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur – Sunday, 1330BST

Whilst we look forward to Ian Holloway’s soundbite-creating interviews this season, his side are the favourites to be relegated for a reason. Adding the likes of Marouane Chamakh, a player who has looked ill-suited to the Premier League to date, probably isn’t going to help the cause.

Spurs on the other hand have brought in some serious quality. After the disappointment of missing out on the Champions League last season André Villas-Boas will be determined to get off to a positive start. Spurs had one of the better away records last season and are a good bet at 4/5 to win this game.

Chelsea v Hull City – Sunday, 1600BST

The return of José Mourinho to Stamford Bridge is a massive boost for Chelsea.

There’ll be no issues with player dissatisfaction under the returning Special One and they should be defensively far stronger this season. He still needs to add a few players to his squad but against Hull he’ll have more than enough at his disposal to get the win.

Steve Bruce’s side look destined for an immediate return to the Championship, even with their new name. We might see an opening day surprise but given Mourinho’s sterling home record throughout his managerial career it’s unlikely.

Chelsea to win at 1/5 is short but Chelsea to win to nil at 4/5 looks a very good bet.
