Big #WhatOddsPaddy markets struck7th November 2017 / lee
While there was some misery around for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on the weekend as his Red Devils lost at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea, punters made the most of his difficult weekend by cashing on #WhatOddsPaddy wagers. The #WhatOddsPaddy feature is where punters can ask the bookmaker for a price on a market by sending a request through Twitter on options like the outcome of a game as well as stats.
For the big Chelsea v Manchester United match up, a punter created a #WhatOddsPaddy market of Chelsea to win to nil, Alvaro Morata To Score & Over 8.5 corners at a price of 10/1. That wager created was backed by a total of 37 punters at Paddy Power on the weekend and so the bookmaker took a real hit with this punter-created bet.
Looking back at the bet with hindsight and why it was so popular is that it made a lot of sense. Chelsea had only lost one of their previous 16 home games in the league against Manchester United and Alvaro Morata is the main source of Chelsea’s goals. But there was an even bigger #WhatOddsPaddy wager that came up on the weekend which was backed by punters.
That was Sergio Aguero & Alexandre Lacazette to score, 4+ corners for each team and that was a price of 14/1 which 53 punters jumped on. Aguero slotted home from the penalty spot in the match to put the Citizens 2-0 up before Alexandre Lacazette got what proved only to be a consolation for the Gunners as they slipped to a 3-1 loss.
If you fancy creating your own bet, just go and tweet Paddy Power using #WhatOddsPaddy for a wager based on stats like those that punters cashed in over the weekend. There was a #WhatOddsPaddy market that came up as well from the Championship on the weekend at 22/1 which was a Corner in the 1st Five Minutes, Goal in the 1st Ten Minutes & Card in the 1st 15 Minutes of Wolves V Fulham.
