What Odds Paddy

Comments

Every week, we let our crafty customers hit us up on Twitter using the hashtag #WhatOddsPaddy with their specific odds requests.

We then drag our irritable traders away from their coffee stained keyboards and have them crunch the numbers to price them up for our plucky punters.

There’s a few head scratchers from time-to-time, but overall our betting boffins tend to come up with some good ones.

Then if those imaginative brains land their punts, they can pay out in a big way for all who back it.

So, here’s a few of the best winners from last weekend. Get those thinking caps on!

Penalty scored & Penalty missed in Juventus v Lazio – 50/1

There’s nothing like a bit of late footballing drama that brings in a punt. Especially, when it’s a 50/1 gamble and one customer from Hamilton in Scotland was delighted to see Juve’s Paulo Dybala fluff his lines on Saturday night.

Having already got Ciro Immobile penalty in the bag, our man needed Juventus to miss a penalty and he got his wish in the 97th minute when Dybala stepped up to the mark.

Lazio keeper Thomas Strakosha delivered the goods for our winner with a stop and saw his £2 wager pay off in a big way. The 2-1 defeat was Juventus’ first loss at the Allianz Stadium in over 783 days, not that our #WhatOddsPaddy backer will care.

Each team to have 3 or more corners in each half in Derby v Nottingham Forest – 22/1

Derby v Nottingham Forest met in an East Midlands derby at Pride Park on Sunday afternoon and a magnificent seven PP customers were hoping the two sides would go set-piece crazy.

Needing at least three corners apiece in each half, our guys most have been delighted to see the sides hit that target and have seven corners each. Brian Clough would have been proud of that kind of football.

Derby went on to win the game 2-0 with goals from Matej Vydra and David Nugent, not that one of our punters cares as he netting a tidy £230 from the #WhatOddsPaddy corner wager.

No penalties awarded in the 3pm EPL matches – 11/4

26 punters are laughing all the way to the bank as the Premier League’s whistleblowers turned a blind eye (standard fare really) to all penalty claims in Saturday’s five 3pm kick-offs.

When you consider that Man City spent nearly a whole game in Stokes penalty area at the weekend, it’s remarkable there wasn’t at least one spot kick in that one never mind the other four on top of it!
