Cash In My Bet Hero - Week Three
Each week, we will be documenting the best effort from our Acca backers with a sixth sense - those that know when to quit, before the crushing late goal goes in.
The fabled correct score treble has spawned legends amongst football fans for decades. Notoriously hard to predict, it can generate huge rewards from small stakes and one daring customer decided to take it on before a dramatic afternoon of Saturday action.
Lewis from Stonehaven correctly predicted Arsenal and Middlesbrough to defeat Stoke and MK Dons 2-0, and he envisaged a cagey affair between Man Utd and Liverpool in the later kick-off - forecasting a 1-0 win for the hosts. His reasoning looked good after a dire first half - and Daley Blind's 47th minute goal catapaulted his Cash In My Bet value. The game noticeably opened up after that, and wisely, Lewis decided to quit while he was ahead - scooping a massive £477.58 from just £5 before Ander Herrera buried a second.
