Fred Done, the Founder, and face of Betfred have made clear the move of paying Man City early to win the Premier League this year.

This means that any player at this bookie is betting in favor of Man City going to win the Premier League race year will be able to contact the bookie and collect their winnings today, even if the side gives up its lead before the 38-game mark (it is only six points clear at the time of the payout).

Subject to the above decision, this operator will pay out anywhere between £3m ($4m) and £4m on a determination that comes 21 games early. However, this can be very understandable at the moment because it is challenging for Man City's rivals to hinder this team's progress on the way to the Premier League title this year.

Will this be the Right Decision of Fred Done?

Currently, Pep Guardiola's men have a reasonably safe distance from the rest of the teams in the tournament, with the pursuit of Liverpool and Chelsea faltering towards the end of the game.

In the last 5 matches, Man City has scored 20 goals and left Chelsea with 10 points.

However, this decision is also perilous for Betfred as no one can predict what will happen in the second half of the Premier League season, and a lot of terrible things can change in the next 19 games.

In March 1998, this operator also made the wrong decision to be the first bookmaker to pay early Manchester United bettors to win the Premier League only for Sir Alex. Ferguson is to be pipped to the title by Arsene Wenger by just a point. And this decision resulted in a loss of £500,000 but despite that, and a warning from the Scottish boss, he didn't learn his lesson.

Continuing to repeat in the famous title race in 2012, when Manchester City won thanks to the last goal of Sergio Aguero, Fred paid the price against Man United to win the title when they were 5 points.

Fred Done shared in 2012 that football is always about his heart, not about his wallet. It seems that this time his faith is entirely placed in coach Pep Guardiola's teachers and students.
