Punter lands astonishing 800/1 Everton betPublished January 16, 2017
One punter will be counting his lucky stars this week having landed an incredible 800/1 bet over the weekend.
Everton faced Manchester City in which was billed as part of ‘Merseyside vs. Manchester’, with Pep Guardiola looking to close the gap on Chelsea at the top of the table.
Unfortunately (and rather hilariously), the Toffees ran away with the game with Romelu Lukaku, Kevin Mirallas, youngster Tom Davies and debutant Ademola Lookman all getting on the scoresheet.
Much to Pep’s disappointment, it was one unnamed punter who had the last laugh.

The Paddy Power customer put a 800/1 scorecast on in their St Helens branch, which named Romelu Lukaku as the first goalscorer as well as the incredibly unlikely 4-0 scoreline in favour of the Toffees.

It was not without the nerves, though, as Lookman’s goal came in the final seconds of the 93rd minute with only four minutes of added time.
First one is on you, fella!
