A football fan who placed a 60p bet at Ladbrokes predicting all sixteen results of the Premier and Championship on Saturday resulted in a staggering £158,000 win!The football fan predicted all sixteen results some with odds of 263.109/1 according to the Mirror.
Potential Spanner in the Works
Most of the predictions were correct apart from a couple of late comebacks to get the results. A potential disaster nearly happened after Burnley scored 8 minutes into the game. However late goals in the 83rd and 86th minute landed the fan a winning result.Another potential spanner in the works for the accumulator bet was Southampton and Crystal Palace heading for a 1-1 draw, however, a goal was scored in the 92nd minute.Lastly, all that was needed to complete the predicted accumulator was for Manchester City to earn three points ahead of Leeds United, after a late kick-off the results ran in the punters’ favour and all predicted results were correct.
Played a Blinder
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said, “Our punter played an absolute blinder here, correctly predicting the outcome of all 16 games in the top two tiers of English football on Saturday – and we’ve no doubt some of the winnings will be spent on a Wilfred Zaha shirt after the Palace man’s dramatic winner kept the bet alive.“What makes the Acca even more impressive is that there was just one draw across all sixteen games, and our customer managed to pick it out, truly remarkable stuff, and we are delighted for them.”The latest big Acca winner superseded a winner back in October 2021 who won £79,568,57 matching thirteen results correctly. This time the thirteen matches spread across the Europa League and Championship along with the Championship League, the lucky fan placed a £2 bet at odds of 39,783/1 and came up trumps.
