Manchester United were the most-backed team in the Premier League this weekend. More Betway customers bet on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side than any other Premier League club, and they were rewarded with a 4-0 win over Chelsea.

The biggest winning accumulator of the weekend also included results from the Premier League. The winning seven-fold was Bournemouth to draw with Sheffield United, Burnley, Brighton, Charlton, Fleetwood, Portsmouth and Macclesfield all to win at 1,165/1.

Brighton's 3-0 win over Watford at Vicarage Road was the biggest upset of the weekend. The Seagulls' average pre-match price was better than 3/1 (4.11).

The longest in-play bet to land came during Manchester United's win over Chelsea. One customer correctly backed the final score to be 4-0 at 33/1.

John McGinn scored the opener for Aston Villa against Spurs, eliminating all but 163 of the week's 4 To Score entries.

McGinn was the longest-priced first goalscorer that was successfully backed by a Betway customer, with four punters beting on him at 17/1.

How our writers' tips got on

Six out of 10 in both of our writers' weekend betting guides represents a decent start to the season with both in profit.

On Saturday, we nailed four out of five on win/draw/win, with the most profitable being Nice's 2-1 win over Amiens, and the most comfortable being Portsmouth's 2-0 defeat of Tranmere.

Our biggest-priced winner was Nicky Maynard to score for Mansfield against Morecambe, which came in at 13/10.

We didn't fare quite so well on BTTS, with Burnley v Southampton ending 3-0 and Middlesbrough v Brentford finishing 1-0 to the visitors.

All three of our win/draw/win bets landed on Sunday, the best of which was Lille beating Nantes at evens.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score against Newcastle was the most profitable winner of the day at 6/5.

And while we only brought home two of three on BTTS, the winning bet - Strasbourg v Metz - was the biggest price of the trio at evens.
