Weekend football betting review 07 10 19

We review the betting data from this weekend's football, including the biggest underdogs, most-backed team and longest-priced goalscorer.

It was a weekend of surprises in the Premier League, as three of the Big Six were beaten by bottom-half opposition.

Comfortably the longest-priced winners of the weekend were Wolves, who were available at an average price of 20.85 (20/1) to win at Manchester City.

Victories Brighton (16/5) v Tottenham and Newcastle (33/10) v Manchester United might easily have been the biggest upsets on another weekend.

That Brighton win was bad news for several Betway customers. Tottenham (17/20) were the most-backed team of the weekend, but were thrashed 3-0.

Six 4 To Score players were still alive after Sebastien Haller, Tammy Abraham and David Luiz opened the scoring in their respective matches. Unsurprisingly, none of them won the jackpot after Matty Longstaff scored first for Newcastle.

Longstaff was the longest-priced first goalscorer of the weekend. The Premier League debutant was available at 23.0 (22/1) to open the scoring at St James’ Park.

The longest-winning accumulator of the weekend was a sensational 11-fold, featuring Bristol City, Derby and nine other EFL teams, which landed at over 2,400/1.

How our tips got on

Our win/draw/win tips were generally disappointing on Saturday, though RB Salzburg covering the -3 handicap did land us a 7/4 winner.

West Ham lost a 1-0 lead to Crystal Palace, while Oxford led twice at Accrington but drew 2-2.

Lincoln beat Sunderland 2-0 to deny one of our BTTS tips, but we did have a 13/20 winner as Crewe and Exeter drew 1-1.

Both of our anytime goalscorer tips fell short, but things looked much better in that department by the end of the weekend.

Borussia Monchengladbach’s Breel Embolo and Lille’s Victor Osimhen both scored on Sunday to land us 13/8 and 11/10 winners.

Our BTTS tips were also a success, with Southampton v Chelsea (13/20) and Atatanta v Lecce (3/4) finishing 1-4 and 3-1.

We were denied an 11/10 winner as Werder Bremen equalised in injury time against Eintracht Frankfurt, while Atletico Madrid had several chances to force a victory in their 0-0 draw against Real Valladolid.
