How’s your Monday going?
Not as well, I'd venture, as the SkyBet punter who landed a sensational 8-fold BTTS acca over the weekend and netted himself a total of £11,454.81.
Those matches were spread across the Championship, League One and League Two and a stake of £150 was lobbed on it.
The football league fan sized up these eight fixtures and bundled them together in a 75.37/1 effort which, remarkable, came in.
- Walsall v Sunderland
- Gillingham v Luton Town
- Swansea v Norwich
- Sheffield Wednesday v Derby
- Northampton v Grimsby
- Morecombe v Notts County
- Wycombe v Shrewsbury
- Blackburn v Preston
Each of those legs were priced up at odds-on and the only one not to land cosily dragged out until the last moments, when this punter will have been at the Lancashire and the Globe Arena in spirit.
The man who’ll be worshipped like a deity in the home of this winner will be Kevin Ellison of Morecambe, scoring in the 88th minute against Notts County to land the last leg of his/her bet.
A stalwart for the Shrimps at the age of 39, Ellison might not score many more significant goals in what’s left of his EFL career.
What a superb effort this is - a week’s holiday on the sunny shores Morecambe on the cards, perhaps.
