Favourite-backers were in heaven last weekend where five Premier League favorites won in the 3pm kick-offs. This meant a whopping amount of accumulators clicked and Paddy Power was sent to the cleaners. A brief reminder of last week’s results are below just in case you missed them. If you were one of the lucky ones who clicked the accas enjoy the ego-boosting recap, but if your name is Paddy Power and you’ve had your pockets emptied, probably best to skip down the page…
Hull 2-4 Man City (4/7)
Chelsea (1/4) 3-0 Aston Villa
Man Utd (4/11) 2-1 West Ham
Southampton (1/2) 2-1 QPR
Crystal Palace (13/8) 2-0 Leicester
Those five winners resulted a bloodbath for the bean-counters in Power Tower, and they were sent scattering as the goals went in. A £10 bet on the five favourites would have returned £121.64 with Paddy Power, courtesy of a helping hand from Paddy’s 20% Acca Bonus. The offer that seemed like such a good idea in those marketing meetings, isn’t looking too healthy now.
- On the five-fold Paddy Power paid out 39 per cent more that Skybet
- PP paid out 20 per cent more than Ladbrokes, and 21 per cent more than Betfred
- The Acca Bonus cost us a small fortune on the five-fold and the boss has now forked out well into a six-figure sum this season. And we’re only in October…
This weekend punters will be able to do it all over again, with five favourites all playing at home in the 3pm Saturday kick-offs. It’s no surprise that the boss is already running for cover. The five-fold currently pays out £250.08 for a £10 stake including the acca bonus at PP. That’s one way to make sure you get a good night out on the tiles come Saturday evening.
Hull to beat Crystal Palace: Evens
Leicester to beat Burnley: 3/4
Liverpool to beat West Brom: 4/9
Sunderland to beat Stoke: 7/5
Swansea to beat Newcastle: 4/5
A quick glance through the form guide would suggest Leicester are a solid bet to see off relegation-threatened Burnley, while Swansea should do the business against Newcastle and Alan Pardew who are having a torrid time of late. Liverpool could be boosted by the return of Daniel Sturridge, and despite some defensive wobbles, should deal with West Brom at Anfield, while Stoke are never great on the road. That just leaves Hull to come out on top against Crystal Palace and you’re home and hosed.
