Arsenal - Hull City
When Arsenal met Hull City, we had a good idea that Arsenal would be able to win the match. They are a good team and they usually do well in spots like these. Because we figured that they would be able to take care of Hull City with relative ease, we were prepared to give our clients an Asian handicap play on the match. We gave out Arsenal -1, -1.5, which meant that if they won by two goals or more, both bets would be a winner.
The match did not start out well, as we had Hull City score the opening goal. That put Arsenal behind, but they were able to fight back in order to take care of Hull City. They scored two goals to get the game back in their favour, and there were multiple chances for them to tack on the big third goal. Unfortunately for our bettors, they were not able to get the third goal, and the bet ended in a bad way.
Half of the stake for our bettors was lost, and half of it was returned, since the -1 portion of the bet was a push. This was a solid pick that we felt pretty good about, but in the end it did not work out as well as we hoped.
