Research Shows Manchester United’s Bad Season Didn’t Favour Punters

The 2010/2011 Premier League is now over and Manchester United have been crowned Premier League champions, but is there any validity in claims that the current squad is weak and that they’ve actually had a bad season? To help find out, we attempted to answer the following:


If a punter placed a £10 at kick off for Manchester United to win each of their games during the 2010/2011 season, how much would they have won?

To find out the answer, we had to collect all the results during their campaign, and with Bet 365, get the odds offered for them to win. Where Manchester United won, we calculated the winnings, but also deducted the stakes lost when they either drew or lost. The result? Very interesting.


The punter would not have won anything. In fact they have lost £36 – wow!

The results were very surprising and could be testament to how poorly Manchester United have been this season, even if they did win it. The full data used to calculate this is included.
