Betfair's 90 Minute Payout: Offer saves 3,500 draw bets in Arsenal v Man Utd

Gabriel Jesus's added time goal would not have affected your 90 Minute offer bet

Football punters won with Betfair's 90 Mimute Payout offer on a weekend which saw late goals that would otherwise have scuppered bets...

Erik ten Hag was fuming after added time goals gave Arsenal a 3-1 victory over Man Utd but Betfair punters who backed the draw using the 90 Minute Payout offer didn't care a jot.

With the score at 1-1 as the clock struck 90 minutes, Betfair paid out for those punters who had backed the draw using the new season offer.

Betfair totted up the number of saved draw bets on the match at the Emirates and found a staggering 3,500 punters who would otherwise have been losers after Arsenal scored two added time goals to win 3-1.

Was this the best illustration yet of the benefits of using the 90 Minute Payout?

It was probably the most high profile, with two Premier League heavyweights clashing in a contest that was full of controversy and incident.

Erik ten Hag was furious that United were denied a penalty, and had a goal disallowed, but when he watches the match back he should be disappointed with his defenders.

Thankfully for 3,500 punters who backed the draw, United's poor marking made no difference to their bets.

90 Minute Payout keeps Cherries backers sweet

There were a further seven goals scored in added time across the weekend that helped 90-minute payout backers.

Late drama has been increasingly common this season after referees were told to get stricter when it came to adding on minutes for stoppages.

On Saturday, Thomas Frank's Brentford scored a 93rd minute equaliser.

As Bryan Mbeumo and his team-mates celebrated Bournemouth rued what would have been a first league win of the season.

But those punters who backed the away win for the Cherries using the offer were paid out at 90 minutes. Their bets did not sour in the west London sunshine.

Of course, the 90 Minute Payout is not limited to the Premier League and, with late goals in leagues around the world, many punters may have seen their bets saved.

The Premier League now takes an international break but the 90 Minute Payout does not.

You will be able to use Betfair's offer on Ukraine v England, Scotland v England and other international matches taking place over the next 10 days.
