Good Day For Punters As Top Three Cop, United Running Away With it...
William Hill were bemoaning a day for the favourites as the short priced treble of Chelsea, Manchester United and Everton all came in and a Liverpool victory against Wigan would result in the top four selections of the day coming good for punters.
United were 4/11, Everton 2/5 and Chelsea 4/9 while the extremely popular treble paid out to just under 2/1.
After stretching their lead at the top of the Premier League to 15 points, William Hill make Manchester United 1/50 to win the league and just 7/2 to do so by 20 or more points.
"Saturday was a fantastic day for Manchester United and punters alike and we are counting the cost of a couple short priced favourites coming good," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Manchester United Premier League winning margin: 16/1 less than seven points; 9/1 8-10 points; 3/1 11-13 points; 5/2 14-16 points; 17-19 points; 7/2 20 points or more
Premier League outright: 1/50 Manchester United; 14/1 Manchester City; 250/1 BAR
