Thumping the traders: The 3 best Premier League punts of the day

The odds were tumbling all over the shop in Saturday’s 3pm games

What a blooming afternoon!

There was goals aplenty this afternoon in the Premier League – 18 in total with just FOUR games!

That means mean one thing for our traders, and that’s a bloody headache. As the more the goals go in, the higher some odds are likely to fall.

Today was no different, and we’ve picked out the three Hall of Fame worthy wagers from the day our loyal punters called!

All the best Premier League odds are on PP.com

3. Correct score: Hull City 3 Crystal Palace 3 – 60/1

A crazy game at the KCOM Stadium had 11 of our punters checking their account with Christmas glee.

Robert Snodgrass give Hull an early lead, before Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha pushed the Eagles in front in the second half. Alan Pardew watched on grimly as Hull retook the advantage almost immediately thanks to Adama Diomande and Jake Livermore.

However, Fraizer Campbell played an unlikely early Santa Claus for our customers to land the 60/1 shot. One of the lucky punters even had a tenner on the result, taking home a cool £610 just in time for Christmas.

2. Scorecast: Swansea 3 Sunderland 0, with Gylfi Sigurdsson first goal – 80/1

The Swans piled more misery on Sunderland boss David Moyes as they lifted Bob Bradley’s spirits with an easy 3-0 success at the Liberty Stadium.

But, one clever punter also called that Iceland’s Gylfi Sigurdsson would land the opening strike, which he grabbed in the 51st minute, along with the correct score.

Our victor turned £2 into £162 after backing his brilliant shout. Not bad for a Saturday’s work!

1. Scorecast: Arsenal 3 Stoke City 1, with Charlie Adam scoring first – 250/1

The Gunners were given an early fright by Stoke at the Emirates Stadium, but eventually returned to the Premier League summit with a 3-1 victory.

Charlie Adam must have had one of our customers jumping out of his seat, when he slotted a penalty just before the half hour mark. As only that single punter predicted that he’d score first coupled with a three goal home comeback.

Goals from Theo Walcott, Mesut Oezil, Alex Iwobi brought in a 250/1 shot for our crafty customer and his single pound became £251 on the full time whistle. A Christmas miracle eh!

Welcome to the Hall of Fame good sir!
