How you could have turned a tenner into €40k

They say hindsight is 20-20 vision; we stick in the contact lenses and take a look back at the bets you could’ve had last weekend.

LAST FRIDAY WE gave you an ambitious accumulator (it included an Audley Harrison win – duh!) – but with the benefit of hindsight, here’s how you actually could’ve won big this weekend.

How you could have turned a tenner into €40k
1 / 6
  • Stoke to beat Liverpool

    Maybe we should'e seen this one coming. The pressure on Roy Hodgson grows after a 2-0 defeat at the Britannia Stadium. Tony Pulis's men were valued at 12-5.
  • Aiden's booted off the X Factor

    Aiden Grimshaw was told to clear his desk and get out of the building as the controversial Katie hung on again. You could've had that shock result at 9-2 earlier on Saturday. For the purists, at least Wagner is still there.
  • David Haye to stop Audley Harrison in the third round

    The fight was a complete waste of everyone's time - with Harrison unsure if he'll receive his fight purse after an abject display. And champion Haye is facing an investigation too after admitting he bet on himself to win in the third. It was 11-1.
  • The cup final to end scoreless

    Sligo won the battle of the Rovers as the Hoops were denied a famous league and cup double. But more importantly, the scoreless draw was priced at 15-2. Nice.
  • Eagles win

    Michael Vick threw for 333 yards and four TDs and ran for two more scores, leading the Philadelphia Eagles to a record-setting 59-28 demolition of rivals the Washington Redskins last night. You could've been on it at around 7-4.
  • Champagne

    And that's how you could've turned the price of two pints into €41,962.80, by our calculations. Easy isn't it?
