You have to respect anyone who can nail a Premier League multi and one Ladbrokes punter had a weekend to remember, with a nine leg, Legendary Land than scored them a return of almost $15000 on a bet of $2.59.
Making it even more impressive was the fact that our punter didn’t just back eight outright favourites and managed to pick a couple of tight contests correctly.
In fact, the only game our punter opted to steer clear of was Arsenal travelling to Bournemouth, which the Gunners won 2-1 to further extend their unbeaten streak.
This legendary land had six legs in play during the main window of Premier League action, on Saturday night, with our punter backing two draws and four wins.
Brighton and Leicester played out a 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium, however this leg would have made our punter sweat after Brighton took the lead on 15 minutes before Leicester’s James Maddison was sent off before the half hour mark.
A 79th minute penalty by Jamie Vardy saved a point for Leicester, who really struggled to create clear cut chances while down a man.
There was a lot less stress involved in the next two legs, as our punter backed two of the early pacesetters Liverpool and Man City to win, with both at short odds in their respective games.
They lived up to expectations, with both clubs dispatching of their opponents in short order as Liverpool recorded a 3-0 win and City a 4-0 victory.
Fulham had not recorded a win since August 27 but our punter showed faith that they would beat Southampton, despite starting as outsiders, and they duly delivered in the weekend’s highest scoring game.
Leg number five featured Everton against Cardiff and our punter backed the Toffees in this one.
Their faith was rewarded as Gylfi Sigurdsson scored the game’s only goal keeping this multi alive
Perhaps the biggest long shot of the entire multi was our punter backing Crystal Palace to pick up a draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United.
In a dour contest, Palace actually created the most chances, but neither side were able to score and with six of the nine legs down, this bet was still alive.
Up next was the biggest clash of the round, with Tottenham hosting Chelsea at Wembley and the North London side put on a masterclass, demolishing the previously unbeaten Blues by a score of 3-1.
For the final two legs, our punter faced an excruciating 48 hours as they waited for the games to be played.
Huddersfield paid a visit to Molineux and emerged with all three points thanks to a brace from, of all people, Aaron Mooy .
With eight legs complete, the only result remaining was Newcastle picking up an away win against struggling Burnley.
Things got off to a phenomenal start for the final leg of this legendary land as Ben Mee scored an own goal to put the Magpies up in the fourth minute while Ciaran Clark doubled the advantage on 23 minutes.
Burnley did pull one back through Sam Vokes however that was all the scoring in this match as our punter rode their win home as Newcastle picked up their third win of the season and sealed a return of $14,365.31 on this bet.
As if the one Legendary Land wasn’t enough for this weekend, they also managed to hit a second EPL mutli with seven of the nine legs, only leaving out the Fulham win at Southampton.
That one had a $3.90 investment at $790.09 odds for a return of just over $3000 so it is safe to say this punter is a huge fan of the Premier League right now.
