Aston Villa help savvy Betfair punter win £19k from 970/1 football acca

VILLANS turned out to be heroes this weekend for one lucky punter, who scooped nearly £20k thanks to Aston Villa’s dramatic late turnaround against Crystal Palace.

The Betfair customer staked £20 on an 11-fold football accumulator on Saturday’s matches in the Premier League, Championship, League One and Bundesliga at colossal odds of 970/1.

A Betfair punter has just landed an 11-fold 970/1 acca winning almost £20k from £20.

Aston Villa (1.87)
Man City (1.57)
Ipswich (1.95)
Preston (Evens)
Blackburn (2.50)
Wigan (2.05)
Exeter (1.65)
Oxford Utd (2.30)
RB Leipzig (1.22)
Dortmund (2.3)…

And while the likes of RB Leipzig and Oxford United secured routine 3-0 wins, others weren’t so straightforward.

In fact, out of this bettor’s 11 selections – three conceded the first goal, and six won by a one-goal margin!

Heavyweights Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund overcame deficits against West Ham and Freiburg with veteran defender Mats Hummels betting an 88th-minute winner on the road.

Championship pair Preston and Blackburn both hung on to clinch 2-1 victories over Plymouth and Middlesbrough before Ipswich beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 at Hillsborough.

Winning selections


ASTON VILLA vs Crystal Palace
Sheffield Wednesday vs IPSWICH
PRESTON vs Plymouth
BLACKBURN vs Middlesbrough
WIGAN vs Cambridge
EXETER vs Cheltenham
Fleetwood vs OXFORD
RB LEIPZIG vs Augsburg
NEWCASTLE vs Brentford

Stake: £20

Odds: 970/1

Returns: £19,419

Wigan and Exeter then obliged by securing maximum points over Cambridge and Cheltenham respectively, leaving this mystery punter needing Aston Villa to perform a miracle against the Eagles.

Unai Emery’s side were trailing 1-0 right up until the 87th-minute when Colombian forward Jhon Duran equalised with a stunner at Villa Park.


And then, deep into injury time, Villa were awarded a penalty.

This punter’s fingernails were presumably shredded with midfielder Douglas Luiz stood over the spot-kick, which he tucked away with 98 minutes on the clock.

Newcastle completed the acca thanks to Callum Wilson’s second-half penalty to leave our savvy punter with a massive £19,419 in his Betfair balance.
