Many of those people who don't follow soccer in England (or football as it's called there) will be unaware of one of the greatest potential upsets in the history of sports that is panning out in the English Premier League (EPL) right now, with small, unfashionable club Leicester City closing in on the championship title against all the odds.
With just seven games left of the season, Leicester City are five points clear at the top of the table and the title is now officially theirs to lose.
Worried bookmakers in the UK are offering to cash out the few people who placed bets on Leicester City winning the league at the start of the season when their odds were 5,000-1, with around half of betters accepting offers of early payouts and the other half looking to see things through for the big prize. People who put small amounts of five to ten pounds on the team at the start of the season are now being offered tens of thousands of pounds to drop out.
Ladbrokes spokesman Alex Donohue said, "Around half of the 5000-1 backers have cashed in their chips, while the rest hold their nerve. Record sums have already been paid out on a bet yet to be a winner and for many fans the lure of a life-changing sum of money is too much with several difficult games still to go.”
