A Spurs win tonight will net one lucky punter a £34k payday

How do we know? Because we are that punter… (yeah, right)

REMEMBER THE FAMOUS saying that football is “only a game”? It doesn’t apply when there’s a £34,000 bet on the line.

For one lucky punter, tonight’s game between Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa is the final leg of a ten-match accumulator covering the weekend’s Premier League action.

Unlike most of the rest of us, this shrewd gambler’s coupon didn’t fall at the first hurdle. Or the second or third. Or even the eighth or ninth.

(Though the bet would have been gone by Saturday evening had Paul Robinson not put his face into David Jones’ boot to earn an injury-time penalty and a 3-3 draw for Blackburn at Wigan.)

And so for a £10 stake, the bet is still alive and just waiting on a Spurs home win to relieve the good men at Paddy Power of a cool £34k.

In the words of Sir Alex, it’s squeaky bum time…

The lucky slip (£10 accumulator)

  • Arsenal to beat Norwich
  • Everton to beat Wolves
  • Man City to beat Newcastle
  • QPR to beat Stoke
  • Sunderland v Fulham draw
  • West Brom to beat Bolton
  • Wigan v Blackburn draw
