A five draw acca on Championship and League One games isn’t a bad bet for a Saturday afternoon punt. It’s not quite the lottery but hopes are high and expectations are relatively low on these ones.
With all five matches kicking off at 3pm by 4.50pm, give or take a minute of injury time or two, this particular punter’s bet was a loser on two legs.
Then in Colchester, two minutes past the ninety, Hakeeb Adelakun equalised for Scunthorpe. Three draws became four but the full-time whistles were being blown across the leagues. Not in Barnsley though. Five minutes in to injury Luke Berry scored for the home side to earn his side a point against ten man Peterborough and secure big payout for one online customer.
From the jaws of defeat the two needed draws were grasped and a speculative €2 bet paid out €1,047.62 PLUS an extra €209.12 thanks to our five-acca 20% bonus making it a tidy €1256.74.
Here are the five draws that made one lucky punter’s weekend:
Colchester 2 – 2 Scunthorpe
Bristol City 0 – 0 Coventry
Barnsley 1 – 1 Peterborough
Huddersfield 4 – 4 Derby
Cardiff 0 – 0 Millwall
Two injury time goals and an eight goal thriller. When your luck’s in it’s in and the 20% bonus can’t have hurt much either.
Welcome to the Punting Hall of Fame sir.
