Lead By 2 You Win Offer
Once this has been completed, simply place a bet on any of the Match Result markets from this weekend’s games in the Premier League from the 17th to the 19th September inclusive.
Only the first $50 you stake on Pre-Game Match Results markets are eligible for the promotion and you only receive this bonus on the first eligible bet you make on each game.
This means that while you can bet on multiple games and receive the bonus across all the bets, only the first $50 of bets you make, or your first bet, on any single game will count towards the promotion.
Then if your team leads the game by two goals at any point, then your bet will be paid out in full up to $50 staked if the team leads by two goals at any stage of the game, and whatsmore, you will receive your funds within 30 minutes.
If your bet is greater than. $50 on your game, then the first $50 will be paid out early, with the remainder of your stake running on until the conclusion of the game.
One thing to note here is that you cannot back the draw option to receive this offer, so you need to back one of the two teams to win in order to receive the bonus.
Is This A Good Value Offer?
Now, many punters may think that if a team is leading by two goals, then receiving an early payout isn’t that much of a great offer, but there have been many occasions when a team has led by two (or sometimes even more goals) and then has gone on to draw or even lose the game.
Here’s some very famous occasions in Premier League history when that was the case and when an offer like this one would have secured you a winning bet, rather than you losing your stake.
Newcastle Utd 4-4 Arsenal (2010/11)
Arsenal not only led this game 2-0, but at half time they led 4-0. However Newcastle came back with four second half goals to earn a point.
Crystal Palace 3-3 Liveprool (2013/14)
Title-chasing Liverpool romped into a 3-0 lead at Selhurst Park in their penultimate game of the season, but Palace staged a superb comeback in the second half to snatch a point and end Liverpool’s title hopes.
West Brom 5-5 Manchester United (2012/13)
Manchester United took a 3-0 lead against West Brom early on in this game, but in an exciting encounter United scored twice more, but conceded five themselves in what was Sir Alex Ferguson’s final match in charge of the club.
Tottenham 5-4 Leicester City (2016/17)
Leicester City stormed into a 3-1 lead after 47 minutes of this game, but Spurs staged a remarkable comeback to lead 4-3 just 11 minutes later. City equalised late on but Harry Kane added his second of the game to clinch an unlikely win for Spurs.
So remember, teams can lose 2-0 leads and turn a winning bet into a losing one, which makes this PointsBet offer one all the more worth taking advantage of if you want to enjoy some Premier League betting.
