One punter threw end results out the window to collect $7678 on the first round of the NRL finals.
The punter with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au invested just $3.00 in a four leg multi, based only on half time scores.
The winning wager was on the Gold Coast Titans, by 1-4 points ($7.50) against the Broncos, Canberra by 5-8 ($5.25) over Cronulla, Storm and Cowboys, to be a draw at halftime ($10) and the Bulldogs by 1-4 ($6.50).
“Anything can happen in finals football and coming up with this combo’ took a stroke of genius. Three of the teams selected were in front at half time, but went on to lose,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
