Lucky punter wins big on the FA Cup weekend
Punter backs FA Cup underdogs and scoops a ridiculous payout. Check out the story.
An anonymous punter placed an eight-folder at one of the top online bookmakers on the FA Cup action, backing mostly the lower division underdogs against even the Premier League opponents. Some of the selections were a 5.50 (9/2) Northampton to beat Burton Albion and a 5.00 (4/1) Derby to get a victory against Crystal Palace.
The savvy punter also backed a couple of draws with Tottenham tieing it up at Middlesbrough at the odds of 3.75 (11/4) and Bristol Rovers - Coventry, priced at 3.50 (5/2).
Throw a couple of more wins there, and you get a cool payout at the odds of 2049.00 (2048/1). Somehow the punter managed to beat such the odds and flipped the £1 investment into an impressive £2,049 payday.
