The Premier League has returned and that means one thing – punters are back betting on the football.

Liverpool‘s 4-3 thriller against Leeds Utd proved most popular with punters this weekend with bookmakers seeing almost double the turnover on the action at Anfield than any other game at the weekend.

Bookmakers were expecting a busy weekend but Saturdays goal bonanza at Anfield saw a flurry of activity.

Kindred’s Alli Gill commented:

It was almost double the turnover of our next biggest match this weekend, and as is usually the way when Liverpool win, it went to the punters. Some things seem constant, such as Liverpool scoring a bucketload of goals, winning at home and ultimately lining punters pockets

The bookies took something of a bashing on the weekend, with five out of eight favourites winning their respective matches –  with early warning signs as Arsenal thrashed Fulham 3-0 in the opening game of the season at Craven Cottage.

An eventual Liverpool home win over Leeds, plus wins for favourites Leicester City over West Brom, Wolves winning 2-0 at Sheffield Utd while a Chelsea win at Brighton last night saw punters rubbing their hands with glee- only an Everton away win at Tottenham saved the bookies from an opening weekend bloodbath.

Gill continued:

Spurs were our saving grace as they helped avoid a bit of a blood bath on day one. Their home loss to Everton was exactly what we wanted to see, and it took a fair few of accas with it as well.

Could we see another profitable weekend for favorite backers next weekend?
