Weekend football betting review: Norwich beat Man City
We review our tips from the international weekend, including a very successful Saturday for win/draw/win, BTTS and anytime goalscorer picks.
The least-likely winners of the weekend in the Premier League don't take much guessing.
Norwich were priced at an average of 20.56 (20/1) to beat Manchester City on Saturday evening. That is not just the upset of the season, but the biggest-priced home win in Premier League history.
They were available at 22/1 just before kick-off.
There were no surprises at Anfield, where Liverpool - the most-backed team in the Premier League - beat Newcastle 3-1. More customers backed Jurgen Klopp's side than any other Premier League team at 1.16 (1/5).
The longest winning in-play bet also landed in the Norwich v Man City match. One successful customer backed a #BetYourWay featuring Norwich to win, over 4.5 goals, over 9.5 corners and over 3.5 cards at 125/1.
Norwich's Kenny McLean was picked by 21 customers in 4 To Score this weekend, but nobody who successfully backed him to score first v Man City also selected Marcus Rashford, Callum Wilson and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Southampton's Moussa Djenepo was the longest-priced first goalscorer to be successfully backed by a Betway customer, with one customer backing him at 11.0 (10/1).
The longest winning Free Bet Club £5 bet was an accumulator from the lower leagues. One customer backed draws in Fulham v West Brom, Burton v Coventry, Ipswich v Doncaster and Eastleigh v Bromley at 148/1.
How our tips got on
Saturday was a disappointing day for our win/draw/win tips, as Charlton, Exeter and Salford fell short in the Championship and League Two.
We did successfully tip RB Leipzig to win or draw & BTTS against Bayern Munich though, which was an 8/5 winner.
Our BTTS tips were unsuccessful, too, but we recouped some of the losses by backing Jarrod Bowen to score for Hull against Wigan at 6/4.
Sunday's tips were far more successful.
Two of our three win/draw/win tips came in, with Sheffield Wednesday beating Huddersfield (13/8) and Marseille beating Monaco (9/5).
We also backed three BTTS winners from three.
Genoa 1-2 Atalanta (1/2), Watford 2-2 Arsenal (1/2) and Monaco 3-4 Marseille (13/20) all saw goals at both ends.
Our one Mythbuster was a resounding success. Hoffenheim were beaten 3-0 by Freiburg, so backing the latter to win or draw landed easily at 23/20.
Edin Dzeko was also an anytime goalscorer winner at 21/20, but Real Betis' Loren Moron and Monaco's Islam Slimani didn't score.
