Around five hundred Aston Villa fans cashed in at Betfred after their win at Burnley on Sunday.
They backed Unai Emery’s team, who won 3-0, to be the highest scorers in the Premier League last weekend which saw them in the money thanks to a newly-launched Betfred coupon.
Villa wasn’t the only team to score three that weekend, with Chelsea and Manchester United matching the feat – but we paid out on the Villans at 20/1 because they were first to find the back of the net.
Betfred, the home of the popular Double Delight/Hat-trick Heaven promotion whereby we double and treble the odds if your pick for first goalscorer makes it a brace or hat-trick, has launched the Premier League Goals coupon and it’s already proving extremely popular.
It was the idea of Betfred founder Fred Done, who said: “I’m always looking for new types of bets.
“It’s goals that most attract football fans, and what makes this bet so attractive is that it’s in-play throughout the weekend’s fixtures.
“We’ve made an excellent start with Villa winning last weekend at 20/1, and this next up we’ve got the league leaders Manchester City at Fulham as 3/1 favourites to score the most goals.”
Golden Boot winner Erling Haaland is already costing Betfred a small fortune following on from Sergio Aguero, who thanks to DD/HH regularly cost Fred over £1million a season.
The coupon also offers the chance to bet on which game has the most total goals – and again, Fulham-City is favourite at 5/1 heading into the weekend.
“This bet really does get fans thinking, because you’re not only considering which team is likely to score the most goals but also who has the worst defence.
“It’s an exciting, unique bet which I know is going to prove a winner.”
