Best Bets of the Weekend - Week One

Alexandre Lacazette Arsenal

Another weekend of big winners

The weekend is over and what a few days it was. The Premier Leagues concluded for the first international break of the campaign and we saw some great games which provided plenty of entertainment. Tottenham's defeat to Watford (2-1) was the shock result of the weekend in the top flight, with the Hornets stunning the North Londoners to record a first ever Premier League victory over them. Unai Emery's Arsenal also made big steps, picking up their first away win of the campaign and just a second in 2018 with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Cardiff in South Wales.

Alongside the action on the pitch there were impressive bets won by our followers, with some huge winners sent into our official Twitter account over the weekend. We've taken a look through some of the best ones sent through to us and put them into one blog so you can see them all for yourselves - there's some beauties!

Have a gander below at some of the winners and if you've managed to win a decent bet yourself over the last few days get it tweeted into us @FootyAccums!

Sheffield United Stunner

There's only one place to begin with the winners this weekend and it comes at Bramall Lane. Sheffield United and Aston Villa faced off there on Saturday in what had the potential to be the game of the day in the Championship and for one lucky Blade it will be something he remembers for the rest of his life.

Sheffield United fan Robert Sidall took home an incredible £10,005 from just a £5 stake courtesy an outrageous scorecast. Every fan makes crazy claims surrounding their own team and and his came true, after winning a mad 2000/1 bet which saw him correctly predict Jack O'Connell score first and Sheff Utd win 4-1!

That was the centre-backs first goal in over 50 league games and what a moment it was to grab it -it's safe to say that he'll now be Robert's favourite player! But not only was it crazy that he scored that opener, but to beat a side as good as Aston Villa by that scoreline is hugely impressive in itself!

All in all a fantastic day for this lucky punter - enjoy your winnings!

Sunday Success

Sunday's usually a quiet day when it comes to domestic football in England, but yesterday we had 5 games to go at across the Premier League and Championship. Each game had the potential to deliver goals and some punters really took advantage of this, with some very big winners to come over the course of the day!

This is definitely one of the best winners we've seen this season, with one lucky SkyBet customer landing a mega 150/1 RequestABet Double. A 10/1 & 15/1 selection ensured that he scooped an insane £750 off just a fiver - what a way to round off the weekend!

SkyBet RAB Winners

This one was sent in by one of our followers and how easy does it look on paper!? They managed to win a fantastic £467.50 from just a £5 stake on the Cardiff v Arsenal & Bristol City v Blackburn games. There was 10 goals and a host of incidents in each of these games and it was something that they took full advantage of - see below:

AND FINALLY... One lucky follower won this belter of a bet with bet365. Using their Bet Builder feature - he created a unique selection which needed Aubameyang & Lacazette to score, Xhaka & Arter to be booked along with the most goals to be scored in the second half. Sounds tough right? These 5 selections accumulated total odds of 66/1, meaning this punter managed to take home a lovely £335 - not bad at all!

BTTS & Win

One of the most popular individual markets when it comes to betting on football is 'BTTS & Win' or 'Match Result & BTTS' as some bookmakers refer to it as. For sides that score lots of goals but have a shaky defence this is brilliant and it's something that's been utilised to great effect this weekend by many of our followers. We've had a few of these winners set in from our followers over the weekend but we've selected a couple to include here:

This 4-fold really caught our eye when we saw it tweeted into us. This bet was built up solely from sides in the Championship and the lucky punter was made to sweat big time! For almost all of the second half it looked like they were going to lose but an 88th minute winner from Derby's Florian Jozefzoon (his first for the club) to beat Hull meant that they pocketed a brilliant £660 from just £1.50 - it would've been some Saturday night after winning that!

And if that wasn't impressive enough, we also had this beauty sent into us. More late drama did the business for this guy who had 10 man Swansea City battle back from a goal down away at Millwall of all places, playing their part in him scooping a mega £546.88 off just £4 - some effort!
