There were two Champions League matches played last night and both ended 0-0, meaning the bookies were jumping for joy as millions of goalscorer, win draw win and correct score bets were foiled. However, there was joy for one punter…
Liverpool vs Bayern Munich and Lyon vs Barcelona are hardly two matches where a 0-0 draw looked likely, but that didn’t stop one punter backing the correct score double and turning his small change into £1000.
The bet, as seen below, returned just over £1000 for a £5.56 stake.
The odds this punter was given in a shop were 179/1 but having checked the best odds available online, he would have picked up a much bigger amount.
The best odds available for both Bayern Munich vs Liverpool and Lyon vs Barcelona to end 0-0 were 287/1, which would have returned £1.595 – that is a full £595 more than this guy received. It always pays to shop around for the best odds, especially when you are picking out obscure bets like the 0-0 double last night.
It is also worth noting that the worst odds online were just 109/1, which would have returned just £606 from the same £5.56 bet.
