We review the betting data from this weekend's football, including the biggest underdogs, most-backed team and longest-priced goalscorer.
In a weekend of few shocks, Liverpool’s crucial 3-1 victory over Manchester City was the biggest upset of the weekend. Jurgen Klopp’s side were available at an average price of 2.71 (17/10) to win the game.
The Reds were also the most-backed team of the weekend, with more customers backing them than any other.
As part of our ‘First Goal Wins’ offer, they were paid out when Fabinho opened the scoring after six minutes.
There were no remaining 4 To Score players in with a chance of winning the £250k jackpot after Ruben Neves opened the scoring for Wolves against Aston Villa, but Fabinho’s goal was still good news for two Betway customers.
They backed the Brazilian to open the scoring against City at 33/1.
That goal was also responsible for the longest winning in-play bet of the weekend, as one customer waited until after kick-off to back him to score first at 28/1.
One customer took advantage of Free Bet Club to land a massive 195/1 10-fold. Newcastle, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan were involved in the winning £5 free bet.
