Punter secures massive EPL payday at Ladbrokes
A New South Wales resident has managed to turn $55.80 into $6,000 already and could be set to earn another $20,000 if Leicester City goes on to win the English Premier League.
The Ladbrokes punter placed eight separated bets on the Foxes to win the league. The first three bets totalled at $16 at $5001 prior to the season’s commencement whilst he added another five bets totalling at $39.80 at $3001 after Leicester’s strong start to the season.
The punter cashed out all of his bets to earn the $6,000 but he left one $4 bet to ride at the odds of $5001.
He is set to earn another $20,000 if Leicester completes the fairy tale however the total could have been $199,400.
There was another Ladbrokes punter who saw the potential in the Foxes early on as he placed an $80 bet on them to win the league at 80-1.
The punter hasn’t cashed out on his option and will win $6,400 if they lift the Premier League trophy.
Since the market opening at the beginning of the season, Leiceister has shortened from $5001 to the $4 price they are at now, which is remarkable because when the EPL markets opened they were $4 to be relegated at season’s end.
The ladder leaders have been as short as $3 but the loss to Arsenal saw them move out to their current price of $4 whilst Arsenal shortened to $2.40 favourites.
Tottenham were able to defeat rivals Manchester City and the win saw them move to $3.20 as City drifted out to $6.
Leicester City has the easiest draw for the remainder of the season with no commitments to any cups with Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham all playing across Europe.
