Shrewd punter collects nearly £3k by nailing half-time Acca

When it comes to #BookieBashing our latest story will take some beating this season. Sure, we’ve all seen big wins before but few can boast of nailing the correct outcomes of a whopping 16 games heading into the decisive 45 minutes of action.

However, that’s what one shrewd punter managed last weekend with a half-time 16-fold landing them a hefty £2,894.40 payout from just a £1.16 stake.

Granted, Arsenal, Bournemouth, Stoke and Newcastle were all cruising at the time the ambitious bet was placed.

But let’s explore the full extent of this piece of betting genius.

West Brom and Tottenham were level at the break but once Nacer Chadli struck against his old club in the 82nd minute this Acca was on unsteady ground. Thank goodness for Dele Alli.

Likewise, Manchester City’s game against Everton was 0-0 at the interval but the bookies – and no doubt many onlookers – certainly weren’t sure it would end that way.

16-fold Acca

In the Championship, a bore draw between Blackburn and Ipswich kept this bet alive while our plucky punter owes Preston North End striker Simon Makienok a pint or two after his dramatic injury-time equaliser away at Brighton.

Meanwhile, League One outfits Bolton, Charlton, Fleetwood and Millwall all duly obliged to round off the perfect gamble.

Congratulations go to our intrepid winner.
