Paddy Power value betting | Champions League 2013
We warned Paddy. The bean-counters warned Paddy. Did he listen? Did he balls.
A solo run straight from the Miley Cyrus school of ‘Ideas I should have thought through’ saw Paddy go for the show stopper. And now he’s paying the penalty.
Going top-price about three domestic champions in their opening Champions League games wasn’t big and wasn’t clever.
If you were one of the legions of punters who placed a £10 ‘four-fold’ on Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich last night – go back to counting your cash.
If you weren’t – read this. Paddy Power was BEST-PRICED on each of those four winning teams last night and got slaughtered in the ‘acca’ market too.
Here’s the proof:
Snapshot taken 1.30pm Tuesday afternoon.
We paid out more than any of our ‘so-called’ main competitors including a whopping 18 per cent more than Ladbrokes.
We need a lie down.
Paddy always led the chasing pack with his Money Back & Justice Payouts but is quickly becoming the King of the Champions League value betting too.
Wayne Rooney had 200 reasons to celebrate his brace in United’s 4-2 win over Bayer Leverkusen. But the bandaged one also left Paddy Power punters quids in as he was heavily punted at 11/2 to be first goalscorer as Bet 365, Ladbrokes and Stan James all ducked the United striker at 5/1.
That’s not all:
- Paddy Power were best priced on 203 of the 485 (42 per cent) correct-score markets on Tuesday night v the competition
- We were top price on Madrid’s Isco, PSG’s Edinson Cavani, and City’s Edin Dzeko in the first goalscorer market
And if Paddy – who hasn’t been seen around Power Tower this morning – is still sifting through last night’s carnage he better skip past Real Madrid’s 6-1 demolition of Galatasaray.
Three customers backed the ‘Galacticos’ result at 125/1 in a winning move straight out of the Stupid Punt archive.
