Carnage at Old Trafford

There was a massive shock for punters at Old Trafford today with West Brom coming back from 2-0 down to get a surprise 2-2 draw. As you can see from the above screenshot nearly a quarter of a million pounds was traded on a United win at 1.02 (1/50) alone.

Favourite backers and all those who go around Betfair hoovering up the ‘so called free money’ will have got their fingers burnt on this one. Punters can’t say they haven’t been warned with Man United this season.

The same thing nearly happened last Tuesday, when after surrendering a 2 goal lead, Spain managed to get their backers out of jail with a late winner against Scotland.

For the record I’m not one of those who backed United. I did win a few pounds on over 3.5 goals though and then wisely thought ‘there’s no way this will finish 2-2’, so laid 2-2 and lost it all. But never mind!
