Bet you should have done

Man utd v newcastle; arsenal v fulham; liverpool v man city -- draw treble 73/1

DRAWS in the Premier League are notoriously difficult to predict but anybody who took a chance on this treble would have been putting themselves through a nervous, if profitable, weekend.

Newcastle caused Manchester City enough problems to suggest that them gaining a point at Old Trafford wasn't out of the question at 4/1 while, after a tough game in Europe, Arsenal's chances of dropping points against a fresh Fulham weren't unrealistic, with a draw priced at 7/2.

Yesterday was the shortest price of the three with Liverpool against City priced at 23/10, although anybody who took the bet might need to send both the linesman at Old Trafford and Joe Hart a thank you card.
