Ladbrokes punter cashes out for £19k on title race

Punter doesn't wait in tight EPL title race


Waiting for a bet to come good can be a nervous, tense time. At this stage of the football season, teams are closing in on title chances, but the pressure is ramped up to new levels. Up in the top flight, the battle between Manchester City and Liverpool looks to be going down to the wire.

Ahead of the new domestic season, a Ladbrokes punter had taken Manchester City at 8/11, Norwich City at 25/1, Luton Town at 12/1 and Lincoln City at 15/2 to win their respective divisions in a £10 four-fold.

With Manchester City in such a tight scrap with Liverpool in the Premier League, the punter decided not to wait and see if Pep Guardiola’s men could make it back to back titles. Man City are currently two points behind the Reds with a game in hand of them.

Not risking City coming up short, the punter decided to cash out early on his bet for a huge £19,620.04 payout this weekend. The bet would have returned over £50k if all four teams picked went ahead and topped their tables.

Lincoln are sat eleven points clear at the top of League Two currently, while Luton are a healthy eight points clear at the summit of League One. So they both look pretty strong to go on and win their respective titles. Norwich opened a gap of seven points at the top of the Championship last weekend with six to play.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Our Norwich based winner has watched three of his four selections breeze their divisions in recent weeks, but Liverpool’s resilience at the top of the table has forced an early-cash out to the cool sound of £19k.”
