Despite there still being eight games left to play, TitanBet.co.uk has decided that the race for this season’s English Premier League is at an end and has paid out every wager on Leicester City winning a first domestic title.
The side managed by Claudio Ranieri sat at odds as high as 5,000/1 (5,001.00) to win the English Premier League in early-August but ‘The Foxes’ now sit five points clear of Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the table.
The East Midlands team struggled last season before eventually finishing the campaign in 14th spot and only six points clear of the relegation zone. However, Leicester City has turned things around thanks, in part, to the stellar form of Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez and top goal scorer Jamie Vardy and is now on course for its best ever domestic finish.
“Leicester City's title charge has been the feel-good story of the season and has gained consistent interest from all over the world,” said Russell Yershon from TitanBet.co.uk.
“As this season has been an unforgettable one, we are seeking to reward our customers with another moment to remember by paying out on such an achievement.”
TitanBet.co.uk revealed that it made the decision to pay out on Leicester City following the side’s hard-fought victory over strugglers Newcastle United on Monday evening, by which time the odds on domestic success for the 132-year-old team had shrunk to 5/4 (2.25).
“Commendations to Leicester City for taking its title fight this far and hopefully it can see the job through in what will be the most remarkable season in the history of the English Premier League,” said Yershon.
