Punter Turns £100 Into Over £110k Thanks To Huddersfield's Unlikely Point
The end of the football season is coming to an end which means a lot of us will be saving the £5 a week we might as well hand over to the bookies for our ever losing accumulators but one punter managed to win big on Wednesday night.
Is there a more delightful feeling than a football accumulator coming in? Watching all those results that would wouldn't normally care about come in the way you want them to- personally, based on my betting history, I barely know the feeling.
One chap in our office lost a couple of hundred quid backing Arsenal to win last night, perhaps the clue was that the Gunners were yet to win away from home in the league in 2018. Come on Alex, you're better than that (he isn't).
However one punter, betting with Ladbrokes, was far smarter than that and knew that the Foxes were going to win, a long with several other results, as he turned £100 into over £110k.
Ladbrokes Alex Apati said, "What an end to the season this punter has had. The stake was high but it all proved to be worthwhile in the end as no late drama was necessary for the monster bet to land."
In Arsene Wenger's penultimate game as Arsenal manager the Gunners couldn't overturn their shocking away form from the last few months of the season. Kelechi Iheanacho put them ahead before Konstantinos Mavropanos was sent off.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put Arsenal back level before Vardy and Riyad Mahrez both scored late on to guarantee the points for Claude Puel's side.
Huddersfield drawing with Chelsea would have been the shock result for the punter, although clearly he wouldn't have thought so, with the Terriers guaranteeing themselves another season in the Premier League.
Manchester City's win over Brighton meant they beat Chelsea's records of scoring the most goals in a Premier League season and the most points in a season, which the Blues actually did in separate seasons.
A win for Pep Guardiola's side in the last game of the season will mean they finish with an incredible 100 points. That's good but it isn't £100k!
