Best football bets: Punter wins incredible amount after skirmish in Aston Villa vs West Ham

A punter won an insane bet after McGinn and Fornals were booked in Aston Villa vs West Ham

The second half of the Premier League clash between West Ham and Aston Villa was a feisty affair.

Ezri Konsa was sent off five minutes after half-time for denying the Hammers a goal scoring opportunity.

There was a clash between the two sets of players 29 minutes later.

Pablo Fornals produced a late challenge on Marvelous Nakamba, which left the Villa midfielder rolling around on the floor.

John McGinn made sure to quickly confront Fornals.



The Scottish midfielder ran over to the Spaniard and gave him a piece of his mind.

His actions infuriated Jarrod Bowen, who pushed his opponent to the ground.

After a mini skirmish between the two sets of players, yellow cards were handed out to Fornals, McGinn and Bowen.

And those yellow cards made one punter an obscene amount of money.

Twitter user @briandjones007 placed a £25 bet on four players from two separate games being given yellow cards.

The odds were 3774/1.

After Kenny McLean and Jack Harrison were both booked in Norwich vs Leeds, the punter needed McGinn and Bowen to be cautioned to win £94,350.

That's exactly what happened in the 79th minute of the game at Villa Park, meaning the punter scooped the jackpot.

What a bet that is. 

The punter is also a West Ham supporter, meaning it really was the perfect day for them.

David Moyes' side went on to win 4-1 and are now fourth in the Premier League table.

With 20 points accumulated from their opening 10 games, West Ham are on course to qualify for the Champions League next season.

There's a long way to go but it's been a brilliant start to the campaign for the east London side. Whether they can keep up their form, though, remains to be seen.
