It’s great when a punter gets it right…and our Punter of the Week really got this one right! We’re talking 2 bucks into nearly $33,000.
AN of Adelaide had a 5-leg multi and when a couple of big-time legs paid off, he was laughing all the way to the bank.
The big win was Leg 1, when Flying Jess ($81) won the Magic Millions Guineas. That, along with Dion Lewis scoring the first touchdown for the Patriots in their NFL playoff game against the Texans ($23), really set our man AN up for a big win.
After correctly picking the other three legs – NFL wins by Atlanta, Green Bay and Pittsburgh – his initial investment of just $2 turned into a remarkable $32,786.62

1 Horse Racing: Magic Millions R7, Flying Jess to win or place at $81.00
