When Newcastle striker Demba Ba cooly converted a penalty to seal the game for Newcastle and complete his hat trick it was heaven for Betfred punters but hell for the bookmaker from Manchester who were yet again forced to pay out on one of their renowned special offers .
Betfred offer a Free £50 Bet to all new online accounts and regularly offer the Hat Trick Heaven/Double Delight special offer on high profile games which means that if the selected player scores the first goal of the game and then goes on to score either two or three goals in the match , Betfred will pay out at either double or treble the first goalscorer odds . Demba Ba was 6/1 with Betfred to score the first goal of the match at the Britannia Stadium last night and therefore will be paying out to all succesful punters at odds of 18/1.
Senegal striker Demba Ba was grabbing his second hat trick of the season and there have now been nine hat tricks already in the Premier League this season with Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney also claiming two .
Betfred may have to re-consider this generous offer as the goals continue to fly in every week in the Premier League and this season looks set for a record number of hat tricks . Since 1992 when the Premier League began the record amount of hat tricks in any season was 19 in 1993-94 , when Alan Shearer , Andy Cole and Ian Wright were in their prime .
Ba has now scored eight goals in the Premier League this season and is 25/1 with Ladbrokes to be Premier League top scorer this season . For Newcastle the dream start to the season may be about to fade as they face Manchester City , Manchester United and Chelsea in their next four Premier League games . Geordie fans can still get 33/1 with Victor Chandler for their team to finish in the Premier League Top 4 this season .
For Betfred the show moves on to the Emirates tonight where the Double Delight / Hat Trick Heaven offer is available for the Champions League game between Arsenal and Marseilles and Betfred will be hoping that Robin Van Persie doesn’t repeat his own hat trick heaven of the weekend .
