Bookie offering 200/1 on Leicester title in 2017


Bookmaker TonyBet have announced they will offer the best odds on Leicester City to win next season’s Premier League.

The Foxes sealed their first title on Monday night, having started the season at odds as long as 5000/1.

They have been priced at 40/1 to do it again in the 2016-17 season but, for the next 48 hours, Tonybet is offering a price of 200/1, with a maximum stake of £10. UK spokesman Warren Lush said: “In our eyes lightning cannot strike twice and we are confident this season was just a freak event.

“The Leicester owners have money and may be able to keep hold of their players but we really cannot see them doing it again. Might they be another Blackburn?

“We are putting it all on the line – by doing this alone we expect to run up the chance of a possible pay-out of over £5,000,000 but in Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino, Louis Van Gaal, Arsene Wenger and Jose maybe Mourinho we trust!

“We have looked around at other bookmakers and they offer in the region of 40/1 for Leicester to win the title and 100/1 they win next season’s Champions League. May madness is upon us.

“At the start of this season Tonybet offered odds on Leicester City winning the Premier League at 5000/1. By Christmas this was into 33/1.

“After a 1-0 win at Watford on March 5, the Foxes were still odds against at 6/4 going odds-on for the first time on the 14th March at 10/11 after beating Newcastle 1-0 at home.

“The bookies didn’t want to believe and, at 200/1 for next season, we still don’t.”
