A fan guessed the exact score of the Chelsea - Man City match and won a tidy sum
Yesterday, Chelsea and Manchester City delivered a splendid match, netting a remarkable eight goals. The victor remained elusive as the game concluded in a thrilling 4-4 draw.
A bettor wagered $10 at one of the British bookmakers on the exact score of 4-4 in the 12th round of the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Manchester City, with odds at 751.
Before this encounter, both teams had scored more than 3 goals only once in their last 7 matches. In the first half alone, the opponents found the net twice each, but the bet required even more goals for a successful outcome.
In the second half, Manchester City took the lead twice, yet the "Blues" found the strength to level the score. Just when it seemed that the visitors would depart London with three points, a penalty was awarded, converted by Palmer — resulting in a 4-4 tie.
Thus, this audacious wager on the exact score prevailed. The bettor, with a $10 stake, claimed $7500 in winnings.
