Wigan were a giant 18/1 to beat City. Surely the magic of the cup prevails often enough that such vast odds should be offered?
And Wigan have beaten two prem sides already this campaign.
I used my £5 free bet to scoop up my £90 and felt incredibly smug.
And I did a draw on a French league two fixture I know nothing of. I was feeling cagey about that one so I cashed out. I felt like Deal or No Deal as I checked my fate, just before the Wigan goal, to discover if I had been wise to cash out. I had been.
