Betfair matched Leicester at 320.0 for win over Man Utd in-play

Huge prices as Foxes pull off unlikley comeback win


Following their 4-0 triumph over QPR at Old Trafford last week, Manchester United looked to be fully in control of things on their visit to the King Power Stadium when they were up 3-1 in the game. Betfair had matched the Foxes at a price of 320.0 to produce the win, while United had been trading at a low of 1.03 with the betting exchange.

Robin van Persie struck the opening goal of the game, his first strike of the season after being matched at 6.8 in-play in the first goalscorer market. The 1-2 Half Time Score had been matched up at 28 with the betting exchange.

The Leicester comeback was sparked by a controversial penalty, struck home by David Nugent, and followed up a couple of minutes later with Esteban Cambiasso netting to pull the Foxes level. A strike from Jamie Vardy and another spot kick for the home side, sent the Foxes into dreamland in a match in which they had been priced at 6.0 underdogs to win pre-kick off.  It was the first time ever that United had lost a Premier League match after holding a two goal lead.

Another big in-play winner for punters was 110.0 on the game going over 7.5 goals, and a Manchester United/Leicester half time/full time bet had been matched at odds of 95.0. It all just goes to show the huge value of following matches live in-play. The big rewards are there.
