FA Cup Thriller at 400-1
By philip
Wednesday nightís extraordinary cup-tie between Tottenham and Manchester City produced a frenzy of real-time, in-match wagering at the betting exchanges, but only one lucky punter dared to believe the impossible. 3-0 down at half time, star player injured, one player sent off, bettors were being offered odds of 400-1 on City emerging as victors. What followed, however, was one of the most thrilling comebacks in cup history and Jon Mackenís winning header in the dying seconds of the game to make it 4-3 to City netted the daring punter £16,000 from a four pound bet.

Itís dramatic times such as this when betting exchanges, and real-time betting, can prove so popular. In total nearly £3m was matched on the game at Betfair alone. Rob Hartnett, at Betdaq said, 'This is a victory for the punters as, unlike a bookie, it was the punter who could benefit from taking a view that anything is possible'.
