21 Punters Predicted Liverpool Victory By 7-0 – But Biggest Bet Cashed Out Early

Just 21 William Hill online customers correctly predicted that Liverpool would win their Champions League match against Maribor by seven goals to nil. The biggest bet was £10 and was placed by a Liverpool fan based in Cheshire ten minutes before the match started at odds of 80/1. The fan could not quite go the distance though and cashed out in the 86th minute, when the score was 6-0. As a result he collected £153.76 rather than the £810 he would have collected if he had held on.

 

“You can completely understand why he cashed out as with just 4 minutes to go the bet was losing,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “But he must have been kicking himself  when Trent Alexander-Arnold netted in the 90th minute.”

 

Liverpool are now 1/16 to qualify from the group stages and 16/1 to win the Champions League
