Premier League on Betfair: Villa smash six past Sunderland to land 659/1 wagers

30Apr 2013

England - Premier League

 

A crucial game at the bottom of the Premier League table ended with some massive odds landed in various markets. Mike Norman has the details...

 

Aston Villa are 9.6 in the Relegation market after thrashing Sunderland 6-1 at a vibrant Villa Park this evening.

 

Paul Lambert's men were generally available to back at 2.3 to win the game, and trading at around the 3.5 mark for relegation prior to kick-off, but put in a sensational display to move level with tonight's opponents and Newcastle on 37 points, five clear of Wigan who have a game in hand.

 

But if you thought the result itself was huge news then consider the massive odds matched on the Betfair exchange.

 

Villa defender Ron Vlaar opened the scoring, much to the delight of those who backed him at 70.0 in the First Goalscorer market. Further goals from Andreas Weimann, Gabriel Agbonlahor, and a hat-trick from Christian Benteke completed the rout with Benteke being matched at 36.0 to score three goals or more.

 

But the biggest odds matched on the night were undoubtedly the 660.0 matched on Villa to win 6-1 in the Correct Score 2 market.

 

And even a Sending Off - matched at 7.8 In-Play - was extremely popular and rewarded those who banked on a sixth red card in nine meetings between Villa and Sunderland.

 

The result means Wigan - who conceded a last minute equaliser to Spurs on Saturday - have a mountain to climb in their quest to mix the euphoria of a FA Cup Final appearance with the desperation of trying to remain a Premier League outfit. The Latics are 1.48 favourites to join QPR and Reading in the Championship next season.

 

To be relegated

Wigan (32 pts) - 1.48

Newcastle (37 pts) - 8.8

Aston Villa (37 pts) - 9.6

Sunderland (37 pts) - 18.0

Norwich (38 pts) - 21.0
