If you’re a fan of betting on Overs (such as Over 2.5 goals during football games) you’ll just love the story of this guy’s accumulator win. In December of last year one plucky punter decided to bet that there would be a goal by every team playing on Tuesday and Wednesday’s Premier League fixtures.
The odds of both teams to score in the ten-fold accs is as follows:
Bournemouth v Huddersfield 17/20
Brighton v Crystal Palace 1/1
West Ham v Cardiff 31/40
Watford v Manchester City 10/11
Burnley v Liverpool 6/5
Everton v Newcastle 1/1
Fulham v Leicester 2/3
Wolves v Chelsea 5/6
Manchester United v Arsenal 1/2
Tottenham v Southampton 10/11
Some games went down to the wire. An injury time goal by Cardiff’s Josh Murphy ensured that the bet stayed alive. Southampton’s last gasp consolation goal against Tottenham courtesy of Charlie Austin sealed the deal, turning the lucky punter’s £30 stake into a cool £15,000. As a matter of interest, this was the first time that all 20 teams have scored in a single game week for over 8 years. A nice pre xmas win for one lucky individual.
