Is he mad or brave? Fans back Liverpool to be Champions to the tune of £44, 000.
A crazy Kopite has bet £44,000 each-way on Liverpool to win the Premier League, William Hill has revealed.
The betting company said that the gutsy wager was the biggest of the pre-season period so far and will see the punter collect up to £777,333.33 if Liverpool are crowned Champions and £205,333.33 if the Reds finish second. William Hill have slashed their odds on Liverpool from 25/1 to 16/1 as a result of the bet.
Bizarelly, the company also confirmed that a steady stream of bets have been placed on Liverpool, who finished eighth last season – 37 points behind winners Manchester City.
“The football has gone largely unnoticed while the Olympics has been going on although there has been a steady stream of bets on Liverpool winning the title, mainly from the North West,” said William Hill,
“There has not been that much movement in or out of Anfield this summer but despite this, Liverpool now constitute around 40% of all stakes that we have taken on the Premier League winner market.”
