We’ve all seen the punters who are enjoying a few free holidays after betting a couple of quid on Leicester to win the league.
And now the Foxes have already started influencing odds on next season’s championship!
- Betting firm pays punters £1MILLION on Leicester winning Premier League title
- Burnley have just been promoted to the Premier League
- REVEALED: How much Leicester’s Premier League title win cost William Hill
In all the melee of yesterday, you might have missed Burnley’s promotion to the Premier League.
Sky Bet put the Clarets at 5,000/1 to win next year’s title – but were ‘knocked over’ by punters backing them because of the ‘Leicester effect’, according to a spokesman.
The betting firm had to cut Sean Dyche’s side to 3000/1, then 2500/1… and they now stand at 2000/1.
Should Burnley win the championship next season it will cost Sky Bet £5.8m already – a bigger payout then Leicester this campaign.
