We have all heard the legend of the guys who placed a bit of a large wager on Leicester City to win the 15/16 Premier League. Then we all know about the people who thought that Chelsea would walk away with the league title in 16/17.
How these people can accurately predict the outcome of a season-long commitment is a bit of a mystery. The Leicester City result can be put down to the ridiculously large odds that were being offered by the bookies and a few die hard Leicester City fans. Who would not feel like backing their own team for the price of a few pints?
Then again, when Chelsea start the pre-season build-up in the form they were showing in August and then after a brief look at the high-quality depth of their squad, who would bet against Chelsea romping away with the whole season?
