Weekend football betting review: Leicester thrash Newcastle
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 very few shocks, no team that was priced at odds-against managed a victory.
The longest-priced winners of the weekend were Crystal Palace, who were available at an average price of 1.92 (9/10) to beat Norwich.
Liverpool were the most-backed team of the weekend. More customers backed Jurgen Klopp's side to win than any other at 1.35 (7/20), and were rewarded with a 1-0 victory at Sheffield United.
The longest winning in-play bet came in Sunday's only Premier League match. One account backed Leicester to beat Newcastle 5-0 at 22/1 as the match was going on.
Leicester's Ricardo Pereira was the longest-priced first goalscorer to be successfully backed. One customer backed Pereira to open the scoring for the Foxes at 16/1.
The longest-winning free bet of the weekend was a beauty. One customer included Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Man City in a 15-fold at over 1,750/1.
How our tips got on
It was a disappointing weekend for our tips.
On Saturday, our successful win-draw-win tips came at Goodison park, where Manchester City to beat Everton & under 3.5 goals landed at 6/4, and in Serie A, where Atalanta beat Sassuolo at 21/20.
BTTS landed in Cheltenham v Crewe at 8/11, but our only other successful tips was Habib Diallo to score for Metz v Toulouse at 6/5.
Our Sunday Betting Guide was over £180 in profit before this weekend, but things didn't go our way this time around.
Leicester to win & BTTS wasn't helped by Isaac Hayden's first-half sending off, while Cagliari did lead Verona at half-time but couldn't hold on.
BTTS landed in Marseille v Stade Rennes (4/5), but Roma and Porto discovered some defensive resilience to win their away games to nil.
Barnsley failed to hold onto their lead against Brentford, while Bologna were beaten 1-0 by Udinese.
The less said about our goalscorer tips the better, though Ezequiel Lavila did have four shots for Osasuna, so the logic behind that selection holds up.
We will aim for much better next week.
