Christmas comes early for punters as Paddy is hit for millions in the midweek Premier League matches

Seven favourites do the business to leave our pockets empty

Ah, midweek Premier League games. How delightful. A nice little stop-gap before the weekend and another opportunity to punt on the beautiful game.

There’s also nothing quite like seeing the panic on our traders’ faces when they realise our punters are having their pants down. They confirmed today that we lost millions last night thanks to a whopping seven favourites all taking three points in the midweek madness.

It felt a lot like the big man coming down your chimney if you’d stuck a tenner on a seven-fold favourite-backers acca. It could have returned you a whopping £231!

Manchester United, 8/11: The game was a back-to-back of wild refereeing decisions and handballs. We reckon a lot of lads will have flipped their sofa over when Zlatan scored the winner in the 87th minute.

Manchester City, 2/7: It was City’s first league home win in nearly three months, and they did it in style with an easy 2-0 win over Watford, don’t forget we paid out early thanks to our 2 Up offer.

Liverpool, 7/10: This was probably the safest bet of the lot, as Klopp’s side tore Middlesbrough to bits with a 3-0 win. The 2 Up offer copped after an hour, leaving our customers wish cash in their pockets with half an hour to go.

Chelsea, 9/20: The Blues made it their 10th win on the bounce with a win over David Moyes’ struggling Sunderland.

Tottenham, 2/9: Spurs took the lead after 14 minutes and made light work of it from then on, beating Hull 3-0 and giving our punters’ their cash after 63 minutes as Christian Eriksen scored his second of the game.

West Brom, Evens: Salomon Rondon scored the second ever Premier League hat-trick of headers against Swansea last night, and thumped an early 2 Up payout into our punters pockets just after the hour mark.

West Ham, 8/11: Captain Noble delivered The Hammers their first full set of three points in seven matches as they saw off Burnley, completing a beautiful acca of favourites.

So, Paddy’s family might be left with turkey dinosaurs in their Christmas dinner this year, but our customers are laughing all the way to the bank after a successful evening of football punting.
