Anyone who is currently backing Aston Villa should arguably be quickly escorted off to the nearest madhouse before any more damage can be done, however this football punter was brave enough to include Tim Sherwood’s new side in an accumulator and is a monster £26,000 richer this week.
The London-based man had his weekend five-fold picked out and defied odds of 2,531/1 to pocket his riches. The FA Cup, League Two, Serie A and Bundesliga 2 all featured as this brave punter went around Europe to pick out the best bets to accompany his Sunday roast. With half an hour remaining in four of the five games this punter was on easy street with Genoa, Inter Milan, Dagenham and Redbridge and Nurnberg all ahead despite conceding, and on their way to comprehensive victories.
Aston Villa made our lucky punter sweat though, as it took two goals in stoppage time from Scott Sinclair and Leicester’s Andrej Kramaric to click the loot. Here is the eye-boggling five-fold accumulator in full…
In total this punter’s £10 bet returned precisely £25,312.50, plus he got an extra £1k on top thanks to Paddy Power’s Accumulator Bonus. It looks painfully easy doesn’t it?
