Find out how 14 punters cashed in on a 500/1 shot as MK Dons thrashed Man United 4-0

Man United's 4-0 hammering in the League Cup didn't come as a surprise to these lucky punters

by Josh Powell | August 27, 2014

Louis Van Gaal selected a second-string team for Manchester United’s Capital One Cup trip to MK Dons, but even still they were expected to beat a side two divisions below them. However from the moment Jonny Evans handed Will Grigg the opener on a plate in the 25th minute, Man United never looked like coming back. The Dons hit three second half goals to wrap up a convincing 4-0 win, easily the biggest victory of their 10-year history. It may have come to a shock for most people, but not for the handful of punters who cleaned out Paddy’s pockets thanks to the win.

  • 14 Paddy Power punters backed MK Dons to win 4-0 in the correct score market at odds of 500/1. One Dublin-based punter stuck €5 on to return more than €2500
  • Two lads were slightly more conservative and backed MK Dons to win by four or more goals at odds of 325/1. Both stuck £1 on to return £326 each
  • One Cork-based punter backed Benik Afobe to score two or more. The man on loan from Arsenal obliged with a brace  to click this bet at 33/1
  • Three punters were on Will Grigg to score two or more goals also at 33/1. One Dublin-based lad had €5 on to return €130 with just over an hour of the game played

They are the kind of punts that show there is a thin line between ridiculous and genius. If Man United had won as expected, these bets would have sat comfortably in our ‘Stupid Punt’ section, however after a thumping 4-0 win for the Dons those punters are taking their seat in the Punting Hall of Fame after some inspired gambles.

We tip our hats to anyone that called the result last night, however nobody managed to punt on Will Grigg to score first and MK Dons to win 4-0 in a 2250/1 scorecast. Somebody missed a trick there…
