4 To Score: Who came closest to winning £50k this weekend?

Two surprising scorers meant the bumper jackpot of £50,000 went unclaimed on Saturday.

Plenty correctly predicted the first teams to score in the bottom two divisions, with Wigan Athletic the most popular selection in League One and Luton Town only marginally behind Notts County in League Two.   

However, just one per cent of players backed Crystal Palace’s first league goal to be the first of the afternoon against defending champions Chelsea, while not many saw low-scoring Barnsley notching so early against defensively-sound Middlesbrough. 


Premier League

Winning team: Crystal Palace (selected by 1%)

Most popular pick: Manchester City (selected by 39%)


Winning team: Barnsley (selected by 2%)

Most popular pick: Leeds United (selected by 23%)

League One

Winning team: Wigan Athletic (selected by 17%)

Most popular pick: Wigan Athletic (selected by 17%)

League Two

Winning team: Luton Town (selected by 16%)

Most popular pick: Notts County (selected by 16%)

The dark horses in the top two divisions meant that only three players got three out of four, with two let down by the Premier League and the other falling short in the Championship. 

If you were one of the three to just miss out, tweet us @betway using the hashtag #4ToScore with a screenshot of your selections and we’ll reward you with a £10 free bet.

This weekend’s game is already open for submissions here, while our writers – who tipped two out of four last time out – will be back with their top tips for each division on Thursday. 

Best of luck!
