A punter from the Irish capital is feeling fabulous this morning after an injury time strike from Sunderland’s Fabio Borini netted him over €190,000 on Saturday.
The crafty customer walked into one of our Paddy Power shops in Dublin and placed a wild four-team acca that included the correct scores of four of Saturday’s Premier League fixtures.
Our plucky punter not only predicted that two wins and a pair of draws in England’s top division, he also managed to get the scoresheets of each of those games absolutely spot on to bring in a windfall of €190,900.
Let’s tell you how he did it…
That goal brought in our punter’s €190,000 betting bonanza and Moysey’s men may just have a new fan from Dublin for the rest of their almost impossible Premier League relegation fight.

First on his betslip was a 3-1 victory for Everton at Goodison Park over Burnley. This landed for our new hall of famer thanks to goals from Phil Jagielka, Romelu Lukaku and a Ben Mee own goal, coupled with a Burnley consolation from Sam Vokes from the penalty spot.
Next on the hit list was another 3-1 success for Stoke City at home to relegation- threatened Hull City. Marko Arnautovic gave The Potters the lead in just the sixth minute, but that was answered early in the second half by Harry Maguire leveller for The Tigers.
The beanpole legend that is Peter Crouch nodded Stoke ahead again with 24 minutes to go and sealed the win with a stunning strike with 10 minutes left on the watch.
Selhurst Park was the next port of call and our hero must have thought he’d seen his bet on a 2-2 stalemate go into the toilet after Leicester raced into a 2-0 lead with goals from Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy. However, fortune favoured the brave on this occasion as Yohan Cabaye and a towering header from Christian Benteke had ‘Big’ Sam Allardyce reaching for a celebratory ‘pint of wine’ as it finished all square in London.
Finally, our mega-winner required another 2-2 stalemate at the Stadium of Light between Sunderland and West Ham. Andre Ayew netting the opener for the Hammers after just five minutes, but Wahbi Khazri made it 1-1 20 minutes later as his corner flew all the way in.
Defender James Collins pushed West Ham back in front six minutes into the second half with a header from a corner and all seemed lost for our punter. However, he’ll be loving Sunderland’s Fabio Borini forever after the Italian seized on a mistake from Darren Randolph to batter a strike into the bottom corner from outside the box.
Well done sir! Your portrait is now hanging in our Punting Hall of Fame.
