There’s a good chance Jennifer Lawrence has had better Monday mornings.
Waking up to half the globe googling your most intimate photos can’t be the best start to a week – even if you’re a Hollywood A-Lister and genuinely lovely person.
Luckily for J-Law there’s one Paddy Power punter whose probably feeling just as bad and wishes he could turn the clock back 24 hours after his inspired punting returned £1,111.88 after the first three legs of his £10 five-team accumulator clicked on Saturday afternoon.
What might have been …
Unfortunately for him, his other two selections also clicked on Sunday leaving him thinking of what might have been.
In what was a weekend of carnage for acca punters our friend pulled off some amazeballs punting by predicting that Burnley would draw with United @ 14/5, Stoke would beat Manchester City at the Etihad for the first time in Premier League history @ 13/1 and Chelsea would confirm their Premier League title credentials @ 6/5 with a 6-3 win at Everton.
Thinking that he’d probably used up all his luck he decided to leave the remainder of his bet (Liverpool to win at Spurs and Arsenal to draw with Leicester) for another day and cashed out before Sunday’s games kicked off. His initial predictions came true – but at least he still had 100 times his stake to numb the pain.
Cashed out before Arsenal let him down ..
It was better news for a punter who saw five legs of his £5 seven fold hit the jackpot before 4/5 favourites Arsenal kicked off against Leicester in Sunday’s 4pm game. He clearly didn’t like what he was seeing from the Gunners in-running and with the game tied at 1-1 hit the Cash Out button.
His instinct proved correct and was rewarded with a profit of £149.13 – even though the bet eventually went down in flames as the Premier League newbies held the Gunners to a 1-1 draw.
Cute as a Fox…
Liverpool’s win at Spurs had this lad reaching for the Cash Out button on Sunday afternoon after Stoke’s win at champions Manchester City put him in the box seat on Saturday.
Mame Birma Diouf’s 58th minute solo run and finish set him up for a Super Sunday on the couch. But once Brendan Rodgers’ side did the business in the earlier game he cashed out for a £179.55 booty and a stress-fee late Sunday afternoon in front of the tele-box. Just as well he did as Leicester would have left his canny winner picking down..
Bhoys aren’t being backed in town …
Celtic’s season has gone from bad to worse since being dumped out of the Champions League by Maribor. An SPL defeat to loss to Inverness Caledonian was followed by a 1-1 draw away to Dundee yesterday as the natives start to get a bit restless with Ronny Deila’s tenure at the Scottish Champions.
One bright spark – who had landed five of his selections in a six-leg accum – also decided that the Bhoys were no longer a sure thing. His foresight netted him £347.92 as 2/5 favs Celtic stumbled again.
With an international weekend coming up, plenty of punters will be tempted in by an accumulator where a cheeky cash out could be the stroke of genius you need to turn a losing punt into some tidy profit.
