A savvy Paddy Power punter from King’s Lynn, England, navigated the World Cup last 16 in sensational style to turn a £10.59 multi-match Bet Builder into just over £5,000.
And, even more impressively, the 14-leg mega-punt featured at least one bet from seven of the eight last 16 clashes with Morocco v Spain wisely swerved.
So, let’s get into the games.
First up it was The Netherlands v USA on Saturday where all that was required was Over 2.5 Goals which promptly flew into the top corner courtesy of the former’s 3-1 triumph.
A good start needed a follow up and Argentina to Win and Over 2.5 Goals just got over the line as Lionel Messi and Co progressed thanks to a 2-1 triumph.

It was France v Poland next on Sunday and the France to Win and Over 1.5 Goals landed in emphatic fashion with Les Bleus being 3-0 up in the 90th minute before Robert Lewandowski added a late, late consolation for their opponents.
Paddy’s punter also needed Kylian Mbappe to Have 2 or More Shots on Target which was no problem for the Paris St-Germain star who bagged two goals and tested the keeper with a third attempt.
It was England’s time to shine next and both legs, England to Win and Over 2.5 Goals, were in the bag with over 30 minutes to play to make it a nice relaxing Sunday evening for all concerned.
Monday’s matches saw Both Teams to Score land in Japan v Croatia and Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals in Brazil’s 4-1 win against South Korea.

So it all came down to Tuesday’s final last 16 games with Portugal thumping Switzerland 6-1 in the late game.
And, with everything riding on it, you might have expected a bit of tension but the Portugal to Win, Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals flutters all were nailed on when Manuel Akanji scored the Swiss’s 58th minute consolation to make it 4-1.
It was as bold punting display but, in the end, was a masterclass in multi match Bet Building that’s well worthy of a place in the quarter finals.
