 Would YOU have cashed out? Punter misses £11,500 with early call

So I doff my hat to one punter who I can warmly welcome to the Paddy Power Hall of Fame – even if it did cost me £54,577.

Seeing goals in his sights, the customer came in to our store in Great Yarmouth and put two accumulators on Saturday’s 3pm action.

He predicted there would be over 2.5 goals in Sheffield Wednesday vs Blackburn, Fleetwood Town vs Shrewsbury, Bradford vs Scunthorpe, Cambridge United vs Stevenage, Northampton vs Morecambe and Alloa vs Inverness. The £20 accumulator paid out £1,389.96.

And he put exactly the same bet on again – this time for there to be over 3.5 goals. Again, £20 was the stake with £53,187.84 the potential payout.

At half-time, things were going well with Blackburn 3-0 up, Bradford leading 2-1 and Northampton 2-0 ahead.

But with just one goal in two of his other selections, a second-half goal glut was still needed – and that’s exactly what happened.

Blackburn smashed Sheffield Wednesday 5-0 and Fleetwood and Shrewsbury ended up sharing the spoils in a four-goal thriller.

It ended with the same 2-2 scoreline at Bradford, Stevenage thumped Cambridge 4-0 while Northampton crushed Morecambe 4-1. And, to cap off the incredible run of goals, Inverness blitzed to a 3-2 win over Alloa.

So not only did the over 2.5 goals accumulator land, the over 3.5 one did too!
