Punters Celebrate 440/1 Premier League Accumulator
William Hill's 'Will Both Teams Score' coupon has proved a staggering success with punters since it was first launched in August 2009.
Don't forget, the both teams to score coupon is always available online - see link at the bottom.
For the first time since the coupon's inception, Hills have had to pay out on all twenty Premier League teams scoring. Already, from a standing start, the bet regularly takes more money than perennial football favourite - the correct score.
"As the first mainstream bookmaker to offer the bet - and one of the few to offer customers the option of betting on whether individual teams will or will not score, we were optimistic that it would prove popular, but it has exceeded all expectations and is now even out-performing the correct score turnover," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
The bet is not just limited to Premier League fixtures and punters can supplement their selections with games from the top four English divisions as well as SPL and FA Cup ties as well.
Despite the fact that Blackburn's Christopher Samba had a face like thunder when he headed in his consolation goal against Manchester United at the weekend, William Hill punters will have been all smiles as he completed a clean sweep on Saturday.
Punters who backed all 20 sides to score will be wanting to kiss Martin Skrtel (although how pleased he will be about it is another matter) who completed the weekend's scoring by netting at both ends at White Hart Lane!
"This weekend was a real headache for us as the price for all twenty teams to score was over 440/1 but the coupon is proving a real success. Most other bets would have been dead when Blackburn were 7-0 down on Saturday but it still gave our punters something to shout about.
We will be hoping for a different outcome this weekend, however, the price is 555/1 for all 20 to score," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
