Before kick-off today you’d be forgiven for thinking that they only people backing Huddersfield to win against high flying Manchester United were misty-eyed supporters from west Yorkshire.
Our traders obviously thought The Terriers bark was worse than their bite as well, quoting them at a price of 8/1 to beat United today and as far out as 12/1 a week ago.
Well what do they know! As David Wagner’s men roared out of the traps to stun United with two goals inside 33 minutes from Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre.
That pair of strikes had 600 Paddy Power customers in dreamland as they saw their pre-match faith in the minnows pay-off in a huge way thanks to our 2 Up You Win promotion. Costing us over £100,000 in the process.
2 Up You Win sees us pay out our punters in full on Premier League, Champions League and La Liga games if their selection goes two goals up. This applies on pre-match singles in the Win-Draw-Win market only.
This means that super 600 had their bets confirmed as a winner by 3.33pm and didn’t have to sweat it out as Marcus Rashford halved the deficit with 12 minutes to go.
Huddersfield held on to win 2-1 and sent out a message to the entire Premier League that the John Smith’s Stadium will not be an easy place to visit this season.
