If you wanted to make money on Arsenal this season, your safest bet would’ve been to back them them to lose.
Research from online bookmaker Betway has shown that if you really had it in for Arsenal this season and decided to put £10 on the Gunners to lose all their matches, you would be £110 richer!
Most of the money came from Arsenal’s disappointing January loss to Watford which had a whopping £124 return.
As Arsenal try to salvage their season and try to work their way back into the top four, they not only have fans disappointed with their form this season but also punters. Putting £10 on Arsenal to win each of their matches would have your wallet £56 lighter up to now.
Out of the top six clubs this season, Arsenal was the only club that you could make money from their shortcomings and misfortunes. For Liverpool, Man City and Man United the money to be made on them was to bet on a draw.
If you’re a fan of anti-climatic endings, Man United will have been the club for you this season. By betting £10 on the Old Trafford side to draw every match, you would receive the best bang for your buck by walking away with a £271 profit.
However, by betting £10 on Arsenal, Man City and Man United to win all of their matches you would have been left disappointed.
the three clubs have played well enough to find themselves competing in the top six but by betting on each club to win all their matches, the three have a combined £127 pound loss.
Overall, the most profitable clubs for gamblers this season have been Watford, Chelsea, West Brom and Burnley while the likes of Middlesbrough, Sunderland, Stoke and Southampton have left their punters worse off financially this season.
