Ladbrokes punter cashes out for £19k on the title race10th April 2019 / lee
It is getting to a stressful part of the season. Teams in the hunt for winning league titles are feeling the pressure. In the Premier League with just a handful of games to go, Manchester City and Liverpool still can’t be separated.
Before the start of the season, a punter at Ladbrokes 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.
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.
So three of the predictions look very stable. However, with Manchester City second in the Premier League, trailing Liverpool by two points with a game in hand, the punter didn’t want to take a chance on City falling short in defending in their title.
They cashed out their 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.
Ante-post selections (CURRENT ODDS)
Man City to win the Premier League – 8/11 (8/15)

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.”
