Betfred pay out on United title win

It's the third time that Betfred have paid out early

Bookmaker Betfred have paid out early on Manchester United winning the Premier League title after the defending champions moved five points clear with just seven games remaining.

It’s the third time that Betfred have paid out early on Sir Alex Ferguson’s side winning the title, with this season’s decision triggering a payout of just over £500,000.

“Even with the big derby to come a five point lead is just too much for City, so I’m letting all United punters have their dough early to the tune of just over half a million quid,” said Fred Done.

One of the previous occasions which Betfred paid out early was in 1998 when United were 12 points clear at the top, but that decision backfired as Arsenal overhauled Fergie’s side to take the title and cost Betfred a cool half million.

“Back in 1998 Fergie told me to never pay out early ever again, but Sir Alex need not worry, I’m convinced United are past the post for a record twentieth Premier League title,” added the bookie.

Any outright bets placed with Betfred on Manchester United to win the league will now be settled as winners, while any multiples containing Man Utd will have the Man Utd part settled as a winner.
