Some huge accumulators and an outrageous goalscorer bet feature in the biggest winning bets of the season.
As we look forward to a full fixture list in the Premier League this weekend, we decided to have a gander at some of the biggest and best winning bets of the season so far. Whether you’d call it bravery or idiocy a winner is a winner and here are some of the highlights. Give yourself a pat on the back if you’ve made the list!
In at number one we’ve got a very shrewd £20 five-fold accumulator from the 10th September. One punter backed Man City to win at Old Trafford, Arsenal to beat Southampton, Bournemouth to beat West Brom, Crystal Palace to beat Middlesbrough away from home and Watford to win at West Ham. The acca was best-priced 204/1 and returned a huge £4,090. Hats off to you!
The second biggest of the bunch came in the tale of two Belgian strikers at Goodison Park. Crystal Palace were the visitors and one brave soul backed the draw (3/1) with £550 of their time. Benteke and Lukaku scored either side of half time, the game ended 1-1 and this shrewd operator walked away with a cool £2,200. Happy days!
Our third biggest win of the Premier League season so far came on the weekend of 24th September. A £40 six-fold was enough to earn one punter a huge £1,666. Man Utd beat Leicester, Liverpool battered Hull, Arsenal dismantled Chelsea, Tottenham beat Boro, Man City visited Swansea and won whilst Southampton embarrassed West Ham at the Olympic Stadium on the Sunday. Not bad at all.
In fourth place, it’s another visit to Goodison with the visitors being newly-promoted Middlesbrough. It was Boro that took the lead but three first half goals gave Everton a comfortable 3-1 win. We saw a £100 bet before kick off on the game finishing 3-1 to Everton at 14/1, returning one happy customer a very tasty £1,500.
At number five, we’ve got probably the most audacious of the lot. Burnley v Watford at Turf Moor was the setting and a £40 bet on Michael Keane to score last at 25/1 was enough for one Oddschecker fan to get his week off to a flyer with £1,040.
