A punter made a €5 bet on Leicester City that they would be at the top of the Premier League by Christmas time and somehow it has happened as the team of Claudio Ranieri has taken the world of football by storm is in first place of the top tier English League.
Leicester City has secured more points than any other club in the Premier League from their opening 16 matches of the season which is an incredible feat to have accomplished, especially taking into consideration the relegation threatened campaign that Leicester City in the previous season where they only managed to secure 11 wins in the entirety of the 2014-15 campaign.
The 2015-16 season is reaching it’s midway point and Leicester City has already reached 11 victories.
The real challenge that awaits Ranieri and Leicester City is for them to maintain their consistency through 2016 but despite what happens it has already been an outstanding start of season for the Premier League club which is about to give a cash-out of around €5,000 to a punter who made a prediction that Leicester City would be at the top by Christmas and it’s what has happened.
He placed the bet back in August in a Ladbrokes outlet when the Foxes were 1,000/1 to top the table on Christmas Day.
This season of the Premier League has been an extremely unpredictable one as Chelsea is sitting in the bottom spots of the table and had to sack Jose Mourinho only 7 months after the Portuguese coach had lifted a number of major titles with Chelsea and Leicester City is comfortably at the top of the league, ahead of everyone else.
