Weekend Review: Layers come out on top after Premier League draws

One Betfred punter lands a 200/1 Pick Your Punt as Kindred win big on Manchester United’s draw with Southampton

An exhilarating North London Derby brought the weekend’s punting to an end on Sunday afternoon as Arsenal drew 2-2 with bitter rivals Tottenham.

The match was Kindred Group’s biggest betting event of a weekend in which the bookies were left delighted at a series of draws for some high-profile teams including Manchester United and Chelsea.

Kindred Group’s Ali Gill said: “The North London Derby was our biggest event of the weekend and really went the way of the punters.

“The draw always seems to be a popular one with the neutrals in this match and so it proved, the high-scoring nature meaning the Overs goal lines also came in.

“No surprise that Man Utd’s 1-1 draw with Southampton was our biggest winning event of the weekend, and it took a fair few accas with it as punters expected a turnaround from the poor start.

“Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Sheffield United was another one which left us well in the black whereas Everton’s late win in a thriller against Wolves was one of only two matches we lost out in.”

One Betfred punter won £1,000 on Everton 3-2 Wolves after sticking a fiver on a 200/1 Pick Your Punt special – Richarlison to score and Fabian Delph and Willy Boly to be booked.

Betfred’s Peter Spencer revealed that Sergio Aguero is now the 7/2 favourite for the golden boot this season, having bagged six goals already, including two in Man City’s 4-0 win over Brighton.

Tottenham’s Harry Kane is second favourite at 9/2 after netting a penalty against Arsenal on Sunday, while Liverpool’s Mo Salah – last season’s top marksman – comes in at third with odds of 11/2.
