#BeatingTheBookie: The most impressive winners from this season
While we all still eagerly await the return of football, this period has given us an opportunity to reflect on the season so far. More importantly, it's given us a chance to delve through the archives and pick out some of the most impressive bet wins from the 2019-20 campaign.
Below, BettingOdds.com have picked out five incredible bet wins from this season, sent in by you, the punter. If you've beaten the bookie this term, please let us know by Tweeting us @BettingOddsUK.
5. Last-minute Drama
The only thing more satisfying than winning a bet, is winning it with the last action of the game. For this lucky punter, he must have thought that his bet was over when Everton's clash with Spurs entered the dying stages of added time. With 96 minutes on the clock the tie looked dead and buried, with Tottenham heading towards a narrow 1-0 victory at Goodison Park.
That was until Toffees frontman Cenk Tosun latched onto a perfectly-weighted cross from Lucas Digne with just seconds remaining to ensure the tie would end with both sides finding the net. Leicester beating Crystal Palace, Nice beating Reims and over 2.5 goals in Rangers v Hearts saw this fortunate bettor scoop £356 from a £25 stake, nice work.
4. Bet-builder Delight
This really is how you spend 50p. Landing a bet-builder is an incredibly difficult task, but landing two in one bet is something else all together. This punter placed a 50p cross-game multi on two separate games - Everton v Man Utd and Wolves v Tottenham - in it, selecting two different goalscorers and three different players to be booked. The returns? A cool £522.
3. Small Stake, Big Reward
Proof that you don't always have to place a high-stake to see a reward: this customer right here. Although the teams in this bet look more like someone's Wi-Fi password than football clubs, he/she clearly knew exactly what they were doing. Either that, or they're the luckiest individual on earth, who knows.
This bizarre five-fold included clubs from Nicaragua and Belarus and is one of the most random we've ever seen. Indeed, it mattered not to the lucky customer, who managed to scoop an astonishing €2,133.88 from just €0.50. Magnificent.
2. Correct Score Madness
This particular bet is pure wizardry. Landing a correct score bet has got to be one of, if not THE hardest thing to do in football betting, so the fact that this punter managed to predict four (yes, four) results correctly is a sight to behold. Are they the messiah? Probably not, but they've certainly caught our attention, for what it's worth. This bet returned over five grand from a £1 stake and, quite frankly, we're still a little in awe of it. Bravo.
1. Championship Champion
Here we are, the top dog. Earlier this season, one incredibly lucky - and clever - BetVictor customer backed all nine Championship winners, pocketing a sensational £21,110.83 from just £2! Results included Derby beating Middlesbrough, Cardiff beating Birmingham and Huddersfield beating Brentford away from home. The bet, which was a nine-fold in total, returned odds of 1055/1. Take a bow, son.
