Another day, another big winning accumulator. At this stage I’m beginning to think that everyone and the nan has tapped into latent fine tuned sports analysis skills! The latest big winner to be highlights here is hot off the press and involves a lucky punter’s football selections from the second round of the Carabao Cup.
The man in question staked just £10 on a seven event accumulator. The acca involved predicting that each of the seven selections would win ‘to nil’. The selections and corresponding scores are as follows:
Bayern Munich 4-0 Chicago Fire
Sheff Wed 0-2 Wolves
Hull 0-4 Derby
Fulham 2-0 Exeter
Brighton 0-1 Southampton
Bournemouth 3-0 MK Dons
Swansea 0-1 Crystal Palace
Predicting any football team to ‘win to nil’ of course has many of variables at play because so much can happen over the course of a game. As it happens though, most of these results went rather precisely to plan, with the exception of the Brighton vs Southampton game where Brighton held out until the 88th minute.
So what did the winner pocket as a result of his £10 bet you ask? A cool £21,547.61 based on odds of around 2000-1 for this unlikely combo. Not a bad day’s work, and it just goes to show how profitable multiple bets can be with the right combinaton of skill and good fortune.
