The first one of our near misses comes from Twitter user @Benny_Prescott, who lost out on a £1,603 return from an audacious £2.00 stake on Emre Can to score first and Liverpool to win 2-3, in the match between Crystal Palace and Liverpool at Selhurst Park on Sunday. Can fulfilled his end of the bargain by scoring the first goal, only for Liverpool to go on to win the match 2-4.
The second is a six-fold acca that would have returned a cool £260 from Twitter user @pauldearns. All was going swimmingly until Wycombe Wanderers scored a last-minute equaliser against Doncaster to make the bet a loser.
Third is from Twitter user @calder82 who had a £3 four fold accumulator with odds of 167/1 and a potential return of £504.52. All markets were full time result and both teams to score and he only needed West Brom to score a goal for the bet to come in.
The penultimate bet comes from Twitter user @paul_palmer1982, who had an 8-leg acca coming in with only Athletic Bilbao letting him down for £163 from £3. They were playing Osasuna, the team second from bottom in La Liga but could only manage a 1-1 draw at home.
The last of this week's near misses comes from Twitter user @craigBFCtillyer, who had a £5 five-fold accumulator that included Ipswich to win at home to Rotherham, in what looked like the banker of the weekend. Mick McCarthy's men struggled to a 2-2 draw and Craig missed out on his potential winnings.
