Spurs entered seventh heaven to leave bookies paying the price

Sporting Index was left licking its wounds over the weekend after Tottenham Hotspur’s 7-0 rout at Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup saw the spread betting firm lose over £100k to joyous punters.

The spread betting experts were hit when they made Spurs’ supremacy (number of goals they will win by) available at 2.2 before the match, and their 7-0 win meant £60,000 alone was made by lucky punters on that particular market.

Mauricio Pochettino decided to field a second-string side for the visit to Prenton Park, but a hat-trick from Fernando Llorente, a double from Serge Aurier and goals from Heung-Min Son and captain Harry Kane gave the North London side an easy afternoon.

While Kane was rested, the Spurs’ striker’s goal minutes could be bought at 22, and his late effort in the 82nd minute not only rubbed Tranmere’s noses in it, but also left Sporting Index feeling blue as it lost almost £20k on Kane’s strike alone.

In an evening to forget for Sporting Index, six figures was lost across all markets in the match as punters were left rubbing their hands.

“Tottenham’s drubbing of Tranmere hit us hard over the weekend,” Sporting Index’s head of trading, Neville Burdock, told Bettingpro.com.

“Spurs have been in great form and there were plenty willing to buy (bet higher) their supremacy. They were rewarded in fine style and it’s just one of those we have to take on the chin.”
