AS the weeks go on more and more Leicester fans are cashing out their potential title-winning bets … and who can blame them.
I’ve said for weeks now I believe the Foxes will achieve the impossible but supporter James Weller of Sheffield was worried enough to take his money off Ladbrokes and run.
Before his side’s defeat of Crystal Palace he cashed out his £10 at 5000-1 bet for a cool £21,552.77. Funnily enough if he had waited a few hours for my Super Single landing he’d have added £3k to his total.
He’s passed up the chance to bank £50,000 but said: “The kids can’t quite grasp it yet but we’re off on an amazing holiday. It’s a fantastic feeling knowing I’m 20 grand richer from just a tenner.
“I hold my hands up, I lost my nerve and bottled it. I’m sure we’ll still win the league, probably drop four points before the end, but it’s ours to lose now and the pressure is on Spurs massively. I just wanted the money in my back pocket ASAP!”
Of the 47 Ladbrokes customers who placed wagers on Leicester to achieve to unthinkable at the start of the season just 24 are left holding a betting slip paying out at 5000-1.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “We congratulate James for holding his nerve this long and having the belief back in August to place such an audacious wager.
“The champers is on ice for our remaining long-shot punters and we wish them all the best before the end of the season.”
