Pre-Season Goals Bet Hits The Net

I was keen to see the League 1 scores yesterday because of something I had read over the weekend.

Leading into the season, a punter made a request to Sky Bet for odds on 'Ipswich Town to score 100+ goals'.

The firm obliged and offered a price of 150/1.

Sky Bet posted a picture of the person's bet ahead of Ipswich's final game of the season - an away trip to Fleetwood Town. The reason why it was topical leading into the finale is because Ipswich was sitting on ninety-nine goals.

Fortunately for the gambler, the game ended in a 2-2 draw. The winning goal (for the punter) came in the fiftieth minute by Freddie Ladapo. 

I cannot find the tweet as I write this post, but I believe the winnings were in the £700 range.

Ipswich finished the season in second place behind Plymouth Argyle.
