Punter Wins Big After Ridiculous £5 Single Bet Sheffield United vs Aston Villa

Punter Wins Big After Ridiculous £5 Single Bet Sheffield United vs Aston Villa

We love a good winning bet here at SPORTbible and there was a serious contender for 'bet of the season' yesterday.

Robert Siddall, a staunch Sheffield United fan, was feeling in confident mood yesterday and stuck on fiver on his side to win 4-1 at home to Aston Villa, with Jack O'Connell scoring the first goal. With Sky Bet, he got odds of 2000/1.

Lo and behold, Bobby's bet worked out absolute spot on. 24-year old defender O'Connell bagged the opener four minutes in and set Chris Wilder's side on their way to a rout over last year's play-off finalists.

Mark Duffy, Oliver Norwood and Billy Sharp all got on the scoresheet, before Villa new boy Ahmed El Ghazi grabbed a consolation with his first goal for the club.

But while Wilder will have been disappointed to not keep a clean sheet despite moving up to third in the table, Siddall didn't mind at all. He pocketed a massive £10,000 from a single bet and all we can do is applaud him, really.

O'Connell has to be Robert's favourite player after his opening goal heroics and he probably owes him a pint or two from his winnings, if we're being totally honest.

Switching gears, one chap was left feeling sick to the stomach after agonisingly missing out on £30,000 from a £1 bet after Nottingham Forest scored a third in a dramatic finish to their Carabao Cup game with Newcastle.
