Large Localised Gamble On John Terry To Arsenal Sees Odds Slashed

William Hill have seen a massive gamble on John Terry joining Arsenal in the summer and have slashed his odds of heading to the Emirates from 33/1 to 5/1 in the space of less than an hour.


90% of all the bets placed have been from the Reading area and a large number have been placed by new accounts.


“Terry is based around London and Arsenal are in desperate need of defensive quality and leadership so it is easy to see why he would join the club,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “The fact that the majority of bets have come from new accounts and the same area suggests that there may be something in this gamble.”


John Terry club on 1st September 2017: 5/2 Bournemouth; 3/1 any MLS club; 7/2 WBA; 5/1 Arsenal; 8/1 any Chinese club; 10/1 BAR
