Sky Bet, Other British Bookmakers Slaughtered After This Week’s Premier League A

Sky Bet bookmakers were left reeling after a week where all of the Premier League favourites walked off victorious. 

It was the “worst day in their sports betting history” according to a company statement.  

Sky Bet paid out to thousands at 7/1 with Manchester City, Southampton, Charlton and Southend all winning.  

Sky Bet's Head of Football Trading Sandro Di Michele said: "Pretty much everything that could of gone wrong for us today did, with the 'What If' market just one of our enhanced accumulators to have come in.  

"You know it's a bad day when you're relying on Manchester United and Barcelona losing to turn things around, but we hardly made things easy for ourselves by picking out back-to-back winning accumulators for the punters in our 'What If' specials."

Premier League outright betting remained mostly unchanged as a result of this past weekend’s results.
