Punter Turns £2 Into £21k
A 45th minute Billy Sharp goal won a Ladbrokes punter £21k from a £2 stake by half-time this weekend.
The plucky online punter picked EIGHT teams to be winning their games by the halfway stage, but looked to be on to a loser until Sharp pounced at the back post to give The Blades a lead against Wigan at the interval.
Elsewhere, half-time leads for Nottingham Forest, Peterborough, Colchester, Wrexham, AFC Fylde, Newport County and Sunderland ensured the punter pocketed a whopping £21,224.72.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "What a weekend our plucky punter had. Sheffield United's Billy Sharp played a huge part in this success story but full credit goes to the brains behind this bet!"
