Paddy’s Punting Hall of Fame: Punter turns 50p into 4k with footy draw acca

There's nothing worse than a draw... but seven on the same night? Now we're talking.


We’ve all heard of teams playing for the draw, but one smart Paddy punter took it to the maximum by landing an 8000/1 acca that included SEVEN stalemates on Friday evening(31st of March).

There’s good draws and bad draws. There’s the last-minute equalisers away from home and the 0-0s where neither side could score in a month of Sundays.

But, however they come, picking seven stalemates in a single night is no mean feat. But it was a feat that turned 50p into £4,060.06 for this Paddy punter.

Most watching on the telly might have been excused for giving up on Burnley v Sunderland and going to bed early but not our punter who would have been glued to the screen until the last minute hoping for no action what so ever at Turf Moor – and he got his wish.

There were a pair of League Two matches on the list as well, the 1-1 draws between Stockport and Salford as well as Harrogate’s trip to Tranmere.

In Spain, Mallorca and Osasuna played out a game with almost three times as many cards as attempts on goal where the ref was kept busy with a stunning 10 cautions and a red.

Bundesliga pair Frankfurt and Bochum also played out a 1-1 draw, as did Cork City and Drogheda in the good old League of Ireland.

So that was a superb six in the bag and it was left to Marseille and Montpellier to seal the deal and give our punter a Friday feeling like no other.

There were hardly any scares in this expertly-curated acca with most games with goals already tied at half time and there were no late goals to save the day or spoil the party.

That is how you navigate an acca! So, all that’s left to say is well done to that brilliant bettor.

Welcome to Paddy’s Punting Hall of Fame, we’ve been expecting you.
