Things More Likely Than Leicester Winning The League At The Start Of The Season

2,394 Shares

Ladbrokes have released a series of events that were back in August deemed more likely than Leicester winning the league. They even rated Piers Morgan chances of taking over at Arsenal more likely to happen than Claudio Ranieri's side triumphing come May.

The Foxes were chalked up at a huge 5000/1 before a ball had been kicked, yet at 2500/1 it was a safer bet that Arsenal dismissed Arsene Wenger and installed motor-mouth journalist Piers Morgan to take over at the helm.

At 1000/1 Sir Alex Ferguson winning Strictly Come Dancing was deemed more feasible than the title heading to the King Power Stadium, or it was a 750/1 shot David Beckham turned his hand to management as new gaffer of Manchester City.

Bookies all over the country face a £50 million pound bashing if Claudio Ranieri's side go on to lift the trophy on May 15th, with one Ladbrokes customer set to collect a cool £250,000 having wagered £50 on them doing so before the season started.

James Curtis of Ladbrokes said: "Leicesters title odds have fallen quicker than Ashley Young in the box, and we're now facing a multi-million pound pay out should the dream become reality."

He added: "At 5,000/1 we had already written off The Foxes' hopes of glory, instead chalking up a Best Actor Oscar for Vinnie Jones more likely."

Scenarios more likely than Leicester City winning the Premier League 2015/16:

David Moyes to be an X Factor judge 2500/1
Arsenal to sack Arsene Wenger and install Piers Morgan as boss 2500/1
David Cameron to become Aston Villa manager 2500/1
Vinnie Jones to win a Best Actor Oscar 2500/1
Claudio Ranieri to be next England manager 2000/1
