Sitting on the bus today and I heard someone talk about this...
Every season there is one/two rounds in the premier league in which each and every team scores a goal. They put on an accumulator bet on every round in which they put both teams to score/ 1.5+ goals on the game on.

Apparently every year when it comes off they win big.

Could someone clarify this is a decent bet / does this?

If you were to put a £10 bet on both teams to score for every PL game next fixture list, it would return £6935.10. So over a season that's £380, so yeah if it came off one season it'll be a good bet.

Not sure how many times it did last season though.

A lad i used to work with does this bet. Remember one week he had 18/20 of the goals he needed but Wolves couldn't score past Man United (for the younger ones they used to be good) and let him down for a couple of grand.

This (bts x10) happened a while back but I'm sure it was the first time it'd happened for years? It seems strange that the bookies would be so out of sync with probability on something like this.

Hmm not sure wether to go for this or not. Anyone know of anything like this, something that happens once a season if lucky that wins big?

Being a lover of statistics, I just had to check.
Just counting premier league games on a Saturday.
It never happened last season, but it did the season before.
On Saturday 15 December 2012, there were 6 premiership games and they all scored.
It happened again on Saturday 11 May 2013, but there was only one game on that Saturday, so I doubt you would get very good odds on one game and both teams to score, but you would on the previous occasion.

With all due respect Abdul, some bloke on a bus reckons it happens a couple of times a season so I'm going big

I think this scenario happens more in the championship and in Scotland. They all seem to have more goals than the prem.

One of my mates sticks £1 on games finishing as a high score draw. Doesn't happen too often but makes a but of cash from it.
