Lots of bettors love seeing favourites going down to the underdog. Well, probably not the Spurs fans, who saw their team being knocked out of the Carabao Cup by the League Two team, Colchester United F.C.
The pain is uncomparable to what one unlucky tipster felt. Imagine landing everything from the Argentinian fourth tier, the English Conference, Austrian Bundesliga, English non-league and a Scottish reserve team, only to lose your bet because Tottenham could not score a penalty.
We can only feel sorry for such a situation. The anonymous punter was one event shy from landing his 20-fold acca, which could’ve brought him a cool thirteen thousand pounds. The upset seems to be even bigger when you know that it was the second shortest selection on the ticket, priced at 1.20 (1/5).
