One sharp punter must have had the moment of their life the last Premier League weekend. The risky punter took not quite as risky gamble on some Premier League fixtures during the Matchweek 14 at one of the top online bookmakers
. The bettor put together a £2 double wager backing the Correct Score in the two following matches: Crystal Palace - Liverpool and Manchester United - Leeds United, taking place on Saturday & Sunday (Dec. 19 & 20) respectively.
Unlike the traditional Correct Score predictions, the punter went off and backed the 6:2 & 7:0 results in the corresponding matches respectively, which gave them the combined odds of 20,301.00 (20,300/1).
The bettor took on the action for a chance to scoop over £40 thousand. Long story short, the first match finished without any issues landing the first 201.00 (200/1) Liverpool Correct Score selection. Unfortunately, the pressure must have been too high for the football punter, and they decided to cash out in the 62nd minute when Manchester United was leading 4:1. Little they knew, the next three goals were netted within the next 11 minutes of the action, to match the backed score. Unlucky, but the punter still ended up with quite a decent payout of £2,279.56 this holiday season.
Our sincere congratulations!
