We review the betting data from this weekend's football, including the biggest underdogs, most-backed team and longest-priced goalscorer.
Aston Villa were the only only odds-against winners of the weekend, beating Brighton at an average price of 2.33 (13/10).
The biggest upset of the weekend was a draw. Tottenham v Watford was available at 4.87 (close to 4/1) to finish level, and the game finished 1-1.
Liverpool were the most backed team of the weekend, with more customers backing Jurgen Klopp’s side to win at Manchester United than any other.
Interestingly, the second-most-backed team of the weekend were Manchester United. Though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team were denied victory, our ‘First Goal Wins’ offer ensured that they were paid out as winners.
Four 4 To Score players were still alive after Danny Ings and Marcos Alonso scored first for Southampton and Chelsea in Saturday’s 3pm matches, but none of them had selected Gabriel Jesus to net first for Manchester City. The jackpot rolls on to £200k next week.
Alonso was the longest-priced first goalscorer to be backed this weekend, though. One customer punted on the Spaniard to open the scoring against Newcastle at 14/1.
The longest winning in-play bet came at the Vitality Stadium. One customer backed ‘No Goalscorer’ in the first goalscorer market at 16/1 after the match had kicked off.
