Bold Liverpool scorecast defies 215/1 odds

Origi to score first and Liverpool 4-0 bold bet pays off


It will be a long, long time before anyone forgets about the epic night that Liverpool pulled off in the UEFA Champions League 2018/19 semi-finals. Trailing Barcelona 3-0 from the first leg of the tie at the Camp Nou, Liverpool defied all the odds and weight of history to find a way to triumph.

While there have been a lot of stories telling of how optimistic punters had plumped for the 4-0 scoreline in Liverpool’s favour, one Boylesports punter took things to the next level with their bet, throwing in the first goalscorer option as well in a scorecast.

It was Divock Origi, playing because neither Mo Salah or Roberto Firmino were available, who got Liverpool a strong start by slotting home after just seven minutes at Anfield. That early strike put Liverpool on the road to success.

The punter had played a €20 bet with Boylesports on the day of the game, for Divock Origi to score first and Liverpool to win 4-0 in the big, bold scorecast bet.

The bet at Boylesports was taken at 215/1 odds and even though with the first goalscorer having been nailed, there was still nervous tension around, waiting for Liverpool to get their fourth goal. It arrived, with Origi getting his second off an opportunistic corner kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold. 14That meant the bet collected a sum of €4,320.

Lawrence Lyons of Boylesports said there were a few optimists who backed Liverpool to win 4-0 at odds of 50/1.

“A huge pat on the back goes to one of our punters in Limerick who nailed the 4-0 scoreline along with Origi scoring first at odds of 215/1. It was a cracking bet and I wonder if they could advise us on this weekend’s Lotto numbers.”
