David Moyes has got his P45, the Class of ’92 have reunited to save the club and Anderson’s finally left for Fiorentina. It’s safe to say Man United fans can finally move on after a nightmare year.
But despite the disappointment of finishing in-and-around seventh place, and the numerous unwanted records Moyes managed to smash on the way, Paddy Power has been offering value to Man United customers that you wouldn’t get anywhere else. The Red Devils might not be lighting up the pitch with their performances, but at least your wallet isn’t suffering as well.
- Paddy Power have been best price on Man Utd on 47 per cent of their matches, offering much better value than Bet365 (29 per cent), Ladbrokes (29 per cent) or Skybet (12 per cent). So when they do win, you’re pocketing more pennies than you would anywhere else
- We’ve paid out 100k in accumulator bonuses on Man Utd across 5,000 bets, in just two months. Considering their terrible form this is actually quite an achievement, and has had the bean counters scrambling for cover
- Paddy has run 14 Money Back Specials on Man Utd in 2014. The most recent refund being “Money back as a free bet if Robben or Ribery score last in Bayern v Man Utd”, where we refunded over 100k to disappointed Utd customers
Now, with Ryan Giggs at the helm and Nicky Butt, Phil Neville and Paul Scholes on board, United fans will be hoping that the club can finish the season on a high with four games remaining. Starting at Old Trafford on Saturday against relegation-threatened Norwich.
As incredible as it seems, Man United have actually won 17 matches this season. 10 of these – that’s 59 per cent – were without conceding, which is a hat-tip in itself to David De Gea, who is likely to pick up the fan’s player of the year award come the end of the campaign. United are 7/5 to win without conceding against the lackluster Canaries.
11 of United’s 17 wins featured more than 2.5 goals and with Ryan Giggs promising a philosophy of exciting football, it’s 4/7 for Saturday’s match to have over 2.5 goals. The Red Devil’s most common winning scoreline this year is 2-0, which is how it has ended in almost a quarter of their victories, and that is a 13/2 poke against Norwich.
Chin up United fans. It’s been a tough 10 months but your e-wallet isn’t looking too worse for wear thanks to Paddy’s value despite what’s happened. Plus, Moyes still won more silverware in nine months than Arsenal have in nine years, so it could be worse…
