Bet you should have done

West Brom v Aston Villa/ Sunderland v Bolton draw double 10/1

At this stage of the season, having something to play for tends to level the playing field somewhat for poor teams, which Aston Villa and Bolton undoubtedly are.

Their opponents on Saturday are just playing out the season, meaning that there was likely to be every chance of a draw, with Villa, and anyone who took this bet, grateful for Shay Given's late heroics.

The wildly optimistic might even have added draws at Stoke and Swansea, which would have made for a 128/1 accumulator.
