A Leicester win or dropped points by Tottenham this weekend will see Leicester City make history and pull off a 5000/1 football betting shock.
The Foxes visit Old Trafford looking for the 3 points to secure their first ever league title.
5000/1 Leicester set to make 5000/1 Football Betting history
At the start of the season the Foxes were regarded as relegation candidates. They were a massive 5000/1 to win the title, token odds really.
Now bookmakers face the prospect of having to pay out on multiple small bet stakes if/when the Foxes finally get over the line.
A draw or defeat on Sunday at Old Trafford could be enough for Leicester, with Spurs having to visit Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea on Monday night. A draw for Leicester on Sunday would mean Spurs having to win to keep the title race alive. While if both Leicester and Spurs lose, the title will be Leicester’s.
A win at Old Trafford won’t be easy though, and bet365 make Leicester 13/5 (3.60) outsiders. The draw is 12/5 (3.40), and a United win is 21/20 (2.05).
Leicester will be without talisman striker Jamie Vardy, but have PFA Player of the Year, Riyad Mahrez, in their ranks. As well as the likes of Danny Drinkwater, Wes Morgan and N’golo Kante, who have all excelled this season.
If you think Leicester might baton down the hatches in the absence of Vardy, and settle for a point, while hoping to pinch a win on the break, then Under 2.5 Goals can be backed at 7/10 (1.70).
I personally think a draw is possible outcome in this match, and a bit of 1-1 might have a chance.
A tight dour affair at Old Trafford wouldn’t be out of keeping at Old Trafford this season. As the Red Devil’s frustrated fans are only too aware.
Obviously, Foxes boss, Claudio Ranieri, would prefer a 3-0 landslide win for his team. I don’t think with his realistic professional head on, he would turn down a 1-1 draw if you offered it him now.
Leicester City look set to make 5000/1 football betting history by winning the Premier League this weekend.
