It hasn’t been a great weekend for Paddy. His mum’s horse Sole Power got turned over in the Temple Stakes, the Sky plus box failed to record the last Britain’s Got Talent auditions and this morning he found the milk had gone off.
Not to mention two punters took him for £13,670 with two incredible bets.
A Glasgow-based punter kicked it off with a £5 correct score treble on the weekend’s football that had more than it’s fair share of good fortune. Across the three games this punter benefited from late goals in every one of them, with teams finding the onion bag in the 80th, 86th and 89th minute.
Joe Ledley, Arjen Robben and Pedro, this man owes you a pint. Here is his following bet and the prices which emptied Paddy’s pockets to the tune of £3,645.
Bayern Munich to beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1: 8/1
Celtic to beat Hibernian 3-0: 8/1
Barcelona to beat Espanyol 2-0: 8/1
It didn’t get any better for the boss on Sunday. American Boo Weekley won the Crowne Plaza Invitational in Texas and 20-year-old Matteo Manassero was the winner of a dramatic sudden-death play-off in the BMW PGA Championship.
One punter who would have been slightly more nervous than most watching both competitions was a London-based Paddy Power punter. He had a £2.50 each way double on both men that came in at £10,025. Here is his genius golf double in all its glory.
Boo Weekly to win the Crowne Plaza Invitational: 66/1
Matteo Manassero to win the BMW PGA Championship: 55/1
It took Manassero four play-off holes to see off Simon Khan to become the youngest ever winner of the BMW PGA Championship. Boo Weekley’s win was slightly more straight-forward, posting a 66 to move to 14-under-par, one stroke ahead of second and third round leader Matt Kucher. Five pars on the last five holes was enough for Weekley and give this punter a payout of more than £10,000.
