Incredible Bet Sees Punter Win £14,280 From Just Four Yellow Cards
A football fan has gone viral after winning £14,280 from a bet on four bookings during the Premier League last night.
Twitter user @KyleTomlinson13 shared the image late on Tuesday night alongside the caption: "I can confirm the group chat has just gone mad."
Burnley vs Manchester United saw Luke Shaw booked after a lengthy VAR stoppage, while Clarets midfielder Ashley Westwood was cautioned in the second half.
It then fell to Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Everton which kicked off at the same time, with Abdoulaye Doucoure and Nelson Semedo receiving second half bookings.
Kyle put a £20 doubles bet on at odds of 20/1 and 33/1 for each game respectively.
Fans have reacted to the screenshot and they think it could be the craziest bet they've ever seen.

The whole bet was close to unravelling however as Shaw could've been sent off at Turf Moor.
Prior to being booked thanks to VAR's intervention, the 25-year-old's lunge on Johann Berg Gudmundsson was checked for a red card.
He escaped a sending off but Jamie Redknapp, who provided punditry on the game for Sky Sports, thought it was a lucky escape.
"I think Luke Shaw will be a relieved man in the dressing room," Redknapp explained per Pundit Arena.

After a lengthy review, the hosts are awarded a free-kick and Luke Shaw is yellow carded...

"In the current climate where the game is so sanitised, I think he gets a little bit of the ball but certainly goes over the top and catches him
"For me that is reckless and dangerous. I think he is really lucky.
"I think the other one (Brady) could have been a red card if you didn't have to take the play back because Shaw's was certainly a foul."
