All eyes will be on the King Power stadium tonight and the bookies are facing some amazing payouts if Leicester can see the season out.
Priced at up to 5000/1 to win the Premier League at the start of the season, numerous bets have been reported of Leicester fans having backed in blind faith wagers of £10, £20 and one reported of £40 (could win £200,000!), for the most unlikely of champions.
One punter has already cashed in a bet early for just under thirty thousand pounds (could have won £100,000 if hadn’t bottled it) but good luck to Leicester and those fans who had a title wager…after tonight.
Whilst Newcastle remain big underdogs tonight despite the arrival of the new manager, there is undoubtedly far more chance of causing an upset with fresh ideas and impetus after McClaren was binned.
At the last six clubs he has managed, Rafa Benitez hasn’t lost a single debut match, winning four of them and drawing two – these include his first match at Inter Milan when they beat an AS Roma team managed by….Claudio Ranieri.
Getting into the spirit of NUFC unveiling a new manager, the generous people at Betfair are offering a special price of 15/1 (normal price 5/1) on Newcastle beating Leicester.
This offer applies to new customers only and the bet is available for a limited period only so click HERE if you would like to take advantage.
