We review the betting data from this weekend's football, including the biggest underdogs, most-backed team and longest-priced goalscorer.
Arsenal were the most-backed team in the Premier League this weekend. More customers backed Unai Emery’s side to win the North London derby than any other side, but were left unrewarded as the game finished 2-2.
Sheffield United’s draw at Chelsea was the biggest upset of the weekend. The pre-match average price for a draw was 5.03 (4/1).
Crystal Palace, priced at 2.26 (5/4), were the least-likely winners in a weekend of few shocks.
The longest winning in-play bet also landed at Stamford Bridge. One successful customer backed Callum Robinson to score the last goal of the game at 50/1, and was paid out despite an own goal going in afterwards.
There were still 768 customers remaining in 4 To Score heading into the North London Derby, after Sebastien Haller, Sadio Mane and Richarlison were the first goalscorers in their respective matches.
Only two went onto share the £250k jackpot, though, after Christian Eriksen netted first at the Emirates.
Eriksen was also the longest-priced first goalscorer to be successfully backed by a Betway customer, with seven punters backing him at an average price of 11.0 (10/1).
How our writers’ tips got on
Our Saturday win/draw/win tips kicked off a solid weekend.
Ipswich beat Shrewsbury (1/1), Crawley beat Cheltenham (5/4) and Juventus dramatically pipped Napoli (19/20) to secure three out of five tips in that market.
We also landed one BTTS winner, with Nottingham Forest drawing 1-1 at home to Preston (4/5).
The Saturday Mythbuster was successful, as Manchester United failed to win at Southampton (31/40).
James Norwood’s goal for Ipswich against Shrewsbury (6/4) ensured that we landed six out of 10 tips on Saturday.
Things got even better on Sunday, as we landed seven of our 10 tips from across England and Europe.
The win/draw/wins picks fell short, with Strasbourg, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid (to nil) failing to do the business.
All three of our BTTS tips landed, though, with Rennes v Nice (6/5) the largest of them.
The visitors’ 2-1 win victory in that match ensured that the first Mythbuster (23/20) was also a winner, while Granada’s 3-0 win at Espanyol secured more profit.
Gerard Moreno’s opener for Villarreal against Real Madrid was our biggest winner of the day at 2/1. Lautaro Martinez to score for Inter against Cagliari (13/8) was also a successful tip.
