Biggest Winning Bets and most Popular Picks this Weekend
The gold standard punt of the weekend has to go to one William Hill player that banked £38k from a £20 five-leg acca. Arsenal, Chelsea, and Celtic played their part in a hugely profitable result and both teams to score wager.
It doesn’t stop there. Another shrewd punter engineered a Build Your Odds acca across three Ligue 1 fixtures in France by pinning down both teams to score in all three matches and combining the goals galore angle with card markets to bank a tidy £12k from a £20 outlay.
In the West Ham vs Wolves fixture, there was more genius afoot. Another William Hill player landed a 391/1 BYO pick on Saturday evening, with Bowen and Scamacca scoring and Cresswell and Neves ending up in the referee’s book to bring home £4k. Smashing.
In the league’s outright markets, Manchester City have moved into 1/4 from 3/10 after a nine-goal thriller between two of Manchester’s biggest clubs. Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal skips away from Tottenham in the outright betting, with Spurs drifting to 18/1 from 11/1, whilst Arsenal edge closer to Manchester City with their 15/2 offering. The Gunners now sit as second favourites ahead of a stuttering Liverpool side currently priced at 8/1 for the title.
In the top four stakes, Spurs drift out to 8/13 shots from 1/2. Unsurprisingly, United’s price also takes a wobble from 2/1 to 6/4. At the foot of the table, Nottingham Forest are as short as 1/3, with 1/2 available before their unsuccessful trip to Leicester. As a result, Steve Cooper to be the next manager to go has shortened to 1/5 from 8/1. Wolves’s striker anguish aided a 2-0 loss to West Ham – a result that not only saw Bruno Lage sacked but one that encouraged the Midlands outfit to move into 13/5 for the drop.
William Hill’s Weekend Offers and how they Played Out
The Epic Odds offer over the weekend was for a goal to be scored in
the North London Derby. Well, Granit Xhaka grabbed the fourth in the 67th minute. Easy pickings.
Arsenal will be involved once again in the next instalment of Willian Hill’s Epic Odds as Liverpool comes to town. Hopefully, another first-half winner to get stuck into. So keep an eye out for that one.
