Punter Cash Out Means He Misses Out On About £3000
If you're anything like me then your betting account will be running on empty after a difficult week at Cheltenham and yet after all those defeats I still know I haven't had the worst gambling fails of the week.
Cheltenham Festival isn't usually a good place for punters, after all have you ever met a poor bookie? It's because when it comes to gambling the house pretty much always wins.
Check out these ultimate sporting fails:
The horses kicking your ass this past few days might have meant you decided to stay away from the usual weekend acca, especially with only a handful of Premier League games and the FA Cup being always unpredictable.
Of course there's always Sky's Super 6. A free competition to try and win £1 million by getting the score of six games correct and that was actually won today so we covered it in a story.
And covering that story allowed us to find out about a punter who had decided to put his weekly accumulator on despite the lack of games in England's top tier.
Lucky for him he got all his choices correct and would have been on for £3000 for a bet of just £5. The bad news for him is he'd already decided to cash out for just £14.60, not the best cash out ever...
Of course Bournemouth came from behind to beat West Brom, and you have to wonder if the Baggies opening goal was when he got mad, Palace beat Huddersfield to take themselves out the relegation zone and Everton won to put Stoke further in trouble.
In the Championship Boro's draw with Brentford left them holding onto their play-off spot, Sheffield Wednesday's win against Leeds surely took them clear of any relegation trouble they may have still been in.
And Nottingham Forest's draw with Sheffield United wasn't good timing for the Blades as they couldn't actually capitalise on Boro's loss and watched Bristol City and Preston North End leapfrog them in the table.
Maybe people shouldn't cash out for £14.60, just a thought!
