Leicester City Latest Betting Figures…Will Anyone Cash Out?

Leicester head to London to play Crystal Palace odds on to win the Premier League at 5/6. At the start of the season, The Foxes were 5000/1 to win the Premier League and just 25 people backed them at that price. The biggest bet was just £20 wagered in Manchester and the smallest was 5p in Edinburgh.

“As things stand at the moment, not one of our 5000/1 punters have cashed out their potentially winning bets,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “We are hoping, however, that as we approach the business end of the season, a few people will lose their nerve given that a Leicester Premier League win will cost us over £2m at the moment.”

The biggest cash out so far was on the 8th March when a punter in a shop in Leicester cashed out for £29,788 for his £20 e/w bet placed at 2500/1.
